No to War on Democracy from within and without
Election with Blockchain to Be Securer and Democracy-Supportive by Voters’ Volition and Memory
Today’s topic is the possible prospect of a safer election discussed here —” Blockchain Voting Will be Coming to an Election Near You, and Soon” https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/blockchain-voting-coming-election-near-you-soon-christian-kromme
It would be very nice if the blockchain technology can actually contribute to securer elections without inflicting heavy burdens on the society. We should not forget, though, that it is still half of the story; it is like a strong door panel is still half of the story if we want to have a strong gate; it should come with a strong lock and key system .
The quintessential requirement of the identity authentication in cyber space, which is the equivalent of a lock and key system in physical space, is confirmation of citizens’ volition and memory.
Identity authentication schemes that do not confirm citizens’ volition and memory would not just destroy the identity security but put the values of democracy in jeopardy as discussed in “Trapped in Muddle Downstream or Finding Solution Upstream”
We should say ‘No’ to war on the value of democracy from within and without, say, from Putin.
No to War on Democracy!
