Cardano community discussion on the future of governance


https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2021/09/30/crypto-miamicoin/

In this article, which discusses Miami’s experiment with crypto and blockchain technology the mayor says, “When you think about the possibility of being able to run a government without the citizens having to pay taxes. That’s incredible,”

Suarez said, adding that the partnership creates a “counternarrative” to the idea that city programs require raising taxes or “private sector philanthropy.”

As an American I’ve always heard our country was founded on the principle of “no taxation without representation”. Do you think the opposite holds true? That there is no representation without taxation? How will Representative Democracies change from the implementation of this technology in municipality level politics?

I’ve been thinking about how a stake pool operating on cardano could be used for city utilities like waste removal and water services and how that could function in a way that affords the citizens the opportunity to have more say, and the officials overseeing it less responsibility in its management.

I’m posting this in hopes to start a discussion about how this tech could transform democracies 10, 20, 30 years down the road. I like the idea of having a say in how my local, state and federal government is ran and the thought of blockchain tech making it easier for citizens to make more informed decisions and to have the transparency that blockchain can provide in governance to facilitate those decisions; but I can’t deny that the comments by the mayor of Miami worry me a little bit.

I’d love to hear the communities thought on this.
