To me SAFE will be successful if its introduction ends sponsored bribery based supply side media globally. Sponsored media exists to concentrate power and spread despostism through misinforming the public about the public interest in order to disempower the average person. Sponsor class spin, censorship and political capture and speech enclosure have been successful to the point that we have lie based societies globally.
I look forward to the time when it is understood that free speech belongs to the individual not the media (the media should have no filter role because at best its a slippery slope) and when it is again understood that money is not speech any more than murder is speech and that commercial speech is last in line and that government and corporate secrecy are unacceptable without exception. Also that theft of attention is also unacceptable (a breach of the peace and of privacy) and that attention must be paid for by full direct compensation to the end user and only where the end user opts in and where the end user must intiate the always reversable opt in and where the end user must always have total control over end user interface (no modal anything.) And that privacy is a right needed to preserve freedom by the way of conserving a viable platform for speech.
With regard to trade secrets, financing innovation does not justify legal enforcement of trade secrets and further NDAs should not be allowed to prevent corporate accountability in tort or employment. SAFE should make these forms of censorship impossible.
SAFE along with better search that doesn’t have the sponsor bribery conflict of interest should get rid of law for purchase and get rid of sponsored (puppet) politicians who are there to sell out the public and are always culled by corrupt wealth’s sponsor filter. Interlocking boards are also unacceptable. SAFE’s impact should begin to clean up corruption generally by providing much stronger truth matching power to the global public. We should as a result see the return of legal protections like the fairness doctrine (which prevented the bribery and puppeteering that sponsored elections aim at) and also the free speech doctrine which stopped theft of attention and put supplier-employer speech in its proper place at the end of the political democratic line to protect political speech and prevent a money megaphone going to concentrated wealth.
About 25 years after the introduction of the WWW, the tree killing paper based sponsored news papers died off in the states. The paper product dropped off over that span. Hoping SAFE can kill sponsored conflict-of-interest based media much faster as there is no greater threat to freedom and democracy. Human kind literally will not survive without this as the current challenges are too great and there is no greater corrupting influence or greater obstacle to necessary changes.
I should note that I do not believe a successful SAFE coin is needed for this but it could help.
