to trust


a question

that we ought

to revisit often

is

should we

continue

to outsource

our morality

and values

to machines

governed by

preordained code

i did my best

to pose the question

with perfect objectivity

and i am

at the exact center

of the spectrum

spanning yay to yay

but really

in most situations

requiring trust

is it better

to trust

the code running

a trustless system

like the smart contracts

linking up on a blockchain

or

is it better

to trust

each (human) other
