The EyeOpener Report- Freedentity: Life in the Transnational Republic

BFP VideoOur identities are increasingly taking the form of 'things' separate from ourselves: passports, IP addresses, customer loyalty cards. As long as we continue to allow outside entities to control, define and distribute these tokens of identity, we yield to outside agents the power over our personhood itself.

Join us this week on the Boiling Frogs Post Eye-Opener Video Report with James Corbett as we explore the concept of "Freedentity" and look at how activists are using innovative methods to undermine corporate and political attempts to control our identity.

    Thanks James.
    Another anti-brick in the global pen. Very interesting indeed.
    Decentralization is seriously on the move in the last 5 years but my overarching concern is: “Can it be hijacked?” Does this scheme utilize cryptography to secure said identity so it cannot be tampered with or ultimately revoked?

    I’ve been thinking a lot about the Bitcoin protocol and how it can apply not just to currency but for a whole host of uses. De-centralizing UPC coding with crypto-enabled QR, Avoiding all sorts of regulations of any state with a de-centralized network of crypto-contracts and grey market, reputation verified, cryptology secured arbitration tied to a separate public block-chain protocol of judgments and formal pseudonymous jury system. Traceable, verifiable but resistant to arbitrary interference.

    The only real sticking point is physical enforcement and how it is implemented. How is it correlated either publicly accepted or privately and how said enforcement can work within an established framework? Can it bridge the gap from virtual to physical easily and will it rely on ostracism, which is a nastily powerful tool in reputation based pseudonymy, especially if a standard is widely voluntarily adopted.

    An entirely new system can be built on these principles so long as no one can ever brute-force alter the history. It sounds pretty shady, but if it’s open-source and no entity has a majority of implementation, I don’t see it as violating any non-aggression principles.

    Essentially an iteration of open-source de-centralized majority-less self governance based on four things. Prohibition of violence–physical and property, physically + cryptographically enforced identity absolution + the option of pseudonymity of transaction, pseudonymous un-alterable but publicly verified and retrievable cryptocontract history + reputation system and ostracism enforcement all built into one system. I’m curious if anyone has further input. It’s one serious rabbit hole of an idea, let alone to construct in a painless way to utilize.
