Distributed consensus (agreement) is the best way to cultivate culture and civilization and control cancerous centralization.
Every system we humans have tried, from autocracy to anarchy, has failed. Separation and fear always supersede general welfare and drive accumulation, competition and centralization. Fantasy becomes law. Ideological constructs run their course and collapse.
I think the missing piece is a common culture of harmonious evolution and the ethics and systems that evolve from it.
