Hacking Democracy (and how to win WW3)
Don Herres

Any issue that a government is either unwilling, incapable or unable to address to the community’s satisfaction can be resolved by the community itself in a fully transparent, documented, participatory manner.

Just as Bitcoin is designed to bypass banks, PhD shows communities how to bypass the upper layers of their governments and self-govern into efficient, self-sustainable entities.
