Alan Jacobs on distributism & the need for new institutions đź”—

In the Hedgehog Review, Alan Jacobs describes the potential for “A New Guild System”:

I envision a world in which the increased fragmentation of our media scene—fragmentation created by institutions that have lost their sense of purpose and individuals who have lost trust in those institutions—leads, over time, to the rise of new institutions that are built on stronger foundations. is certainly part of this new-institution-building.

And many developments in web3 seem dedicated to the same purposes: distributing political & economic power in new ways; thinking through what institutions could look like if organized differently—in more distributed, bottom-up forms.
