I love intelligent people @leashless @mattereum.
Lawyers are simply programmers for the real world.
“how to control the material world with smart contracts?” onwards

@doctorow : dear Cory, I think you might find this of interest: “How shared perma-circular supply chains, post-blockchain distributed ledgers, protocol cooperatives, and three new forms of post-capitalist accounting, could very well save the planet.” https://t.co/sJLhNywQ5o
from kate‘s prologue to accounting for planetary survival:
So leave behind today’s widespread obsession with smart contracts, platform capitalism and economies of scale: these only serve to reinforce last century’s dominant and extractive modes of production. Instead, dive into this report and discover the possibilities of Ostrom contracts, platform cooperativism and economies of scope
contracts et al as cancerous.. begs we move beyond causes/measuring et al
from david graeber‘s debt:
such behavior could be justified in legal terms by insisting that the loan was not a form of mutual aid but a commercial relationship – a contract is a contract.. (it also required a certain reliable access to superior force).. framing as breach of contract. .meant a moral issue: two out to be equals.. but one failed to honor the bargain
from murray bookchin‘s ecology of freedom:
domination now enters into history as a social ‘need’.. a social imperative.. that entangles personality, daily life, econ activity and even love in its toils.. the myth of contactual ‘trust’ w its sanctimonious seals and archaic language is built on the persistence of contractual mistrust and social estrangement, which the idea of ‘contract’ continually reinforces.. that everything has to be ‘spelled out’ is evidence of the ubiquity of moral predation..
