Technology can be decentralized, but people are not decentralized, power is not decentralized, and wealth is not decentralized.

@PeterCxy information can be decentralized, which is good. If this information (that wealth and power are an illusion, and most of today's money is based on the belief it has value) is decentralized, then it will always be available to those who are willing to wake up.

@PeterCxy IMHO individuals are indeed decentralized; they're even distributed. The problem is that the distributed individual network (the society) is so much broken that the network is in a mess. The distributed network without strict, effective rules like computer networks ends up running into a centralized one, where a few strong nodes being the controller.
