Note the monkey response to the breaking of the cooperation – the offending individual was punished and exiled.
Cooperation requires such a response to cheating strategies if it is to survive.
Such responses required that individuals can be reliably identified over time – meaning good distinction and memory systems and social trust systems.
At every level, recursively.
Serious lessons for building a stable society in there.
Market systems cannot do the job.
Local markets used to have great trust networks.
In today’s society, those have been almost eliminated, and cheating strategies now dominate.
We need to rebuild and reclaim those trust networks, extend the communication, identification and memory functions – without going to centralisation.
