Again, yet again, we see decentralization taking over the system, with the power structures in place unable to counter individuals exercising their free will.
People keep ignoring me, saying that my whole "decentralization vs. centralization narrative" is stupid...but really, it's not.
This is the future, people. The 21st century will be a conflict--not necessarily violent, but probably--between the centralized power structures of the elites and the decentralized societies of the people. You really can't escape it.
