YEP. LIKE I SAID:
Evolution of means of reputation.
Reputation > Religious > Legal > Credit > Information > AI.
As tech and population increase, so do the means of policing behavior.
The alternative is the city and nation state.
China does have a real problem however, since the population is so large and the chinese people are ‘not trustworthy’. So the government’s plan is to automate reputation management, just as they used the red army to impose policy in the past.
