Resilience of any system is incompatible with vulture capitalism, that is with highly efficient utilization of resources.

Context

About 7 years ago, the White House introduced The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC), an initiative collaboratively bringing together the private sector, advocacy groups, public sector agencies and other organizations to improve the privacy, security and convenience of online transactions. The Identity Ecosystem envisioned in the NSTIC is an online environment where individuals and organizations are able to trust each other because they follow agreed-upon standards to obtain and authenticate their digital identities – and the digital identities of devices.

To achieve this objective, the NSTIC established guiding principles for the creation of an Identity Ecosystem, developed with identity solutions that are:

  1. Privacy-enhancing and voluntary,
  2. Secure and Resilient,
  3. Interoperable and
  4. Cost-effective and easy to use.

Problems

  • It seems to be a feature of any component of a Living System, (which includes all of societies imposed structures) that the most successful systems migrate towards solutions which make for the most efficient use of the resources at their disposal. For the system as a whole to be Resiliant, the inevitable failure of any subsystem that is highly leverage, but not imperil the whole system, or it will not survive change.
  • The size of change most likely follow a power law, or the small changes are more frequent than the larger changes. If a system is resilient only to small changes, the the large changes will imperil the system.<ref>Nassim Nicholas Taleb, The Black Swan - The Impact of the Highly Improbable (2007) Random House ISBN 978-1-4000-6351-2<ref>
