    • Populism is emerging in the West and in parts of Asia. Characterized by a suspicion and hostility toward elites, mainstream politics, and established institutions, it reflects rejection of the economic effects of globalization and frustration with the responses of political and economic elites to the public’s concerns. Both right-wing and left-wing populist parties have been rising across Europe—as leaders of political parties in France, Greece, and the Netherlands, for example, criticize established organizations for failing to protect the livelihood of European residents. South America has had its own waves of populism, as have the Philippines and Thailand.

    • Lots of people in this thread are confused about the difference between 'democratic socialism'

      and 'social democracy'
      .

        

      Today, democratic socialism is a fuzzy word and an umbrella term. Orthodox socialist terminology however, is simply that "democratic socialism" is a socialist society governed by means of direct democracy. Democratic socialists (such as George Orwell, Leon Trotsky, Dolores Ibárruri) are almost always revolutionary socialists.

        

      Social democracy on the other hand is very concretely defined, very different, and rarely advocating direct democracy. Social democracy is the belief that socialist society (of any nature) should be achieved by legally reforming the current system.

        

      Democratic socialists can be social democrats (weird wording; not sure what these folks like to be called), but most people who identify as democratic socialists aren't.

        

      Libertarian Socialism

      is a blanket term, mainly used to refer to democratic socialism and anarcho-syndicalism
      , but also includes any leftist ideologies that argue for limited and decentralized government. All forms of anarchism, Luxemburgism
      , communalism
      , and anything else that fits under advocating decentralized limited government (libertarian) & advocating a socio-economic system wherein the workers control the means of production (socialism) is 'libertarian socialism'.

  • The first blockchain-based investigation of an organization's corruption is commencing. The goal is to not render some sort of punishment, but eventually and legitimately devalue their organization on the emerging reputation networks. #FuckFBIFriday…

    • the possibility that their agents may share additional evidence about just how deep the corruption goes
      • The Swarm reputation system might be better to focus on what the system allows rather than prevents. It allows people to make better informed choices about who to partner with and make deals with. It helps trustworthy people prove their authenticity and values.
    • the agents can see evidence that someone is pulling their bosses’s bosses’s strings.
      • They most likely know that they ultimately serve the Elites. They need protection and sufficient incentives to take risks for disclosing.
    • the basis of whether or not they are honorable and participatory members of society.
