THREAD 3 -GLOBAL POWER CENTRES

The transnational corporations (THREAD 1 ) & investors (THREAD 2 ) that are now pushing a #plantbased food system are forces that operate symbiotically within the bulwark of neoliberal capitalism.
The latter is constituted of such (overlapping) power centers as @TrilateralNA, @GroupofThirty, @CFR_org & @wef. These think tanks represent the strategic-planning & consensus-forming centers of the #plutocracy (aka, the 'transnational capitalist class').
We should not be surprised, or dismiss it as 'conspiracy', when the obvious appears to us: those players that are having the intention to modulate world markets are also keen on shaping the food system.

First and foremost, if you are designing *governance systems* and you’re not up to speed on our 200+ years of quantitative research in this area, consider researching this body of work.

Here is a resource to get you started, first tweeted in 2017:

Secondly, by and large, we collectively have at most a few years of experience with on-chain voting systems.

Voting is just one way to coordinate.

Everything is an experiment.

Governance of networks, upgrades, DAOs, nonprofits, public co’s does not & should not look the same.
