Question about Distributed Autonomous Communities

The white paper on GitHub has a section on Decentralized Autonomous Organizations, that includes discussion of Decentralized Autonomous Communities where all members have an equal say in the operation of the community.

The paper states "the requirement that one person can only have one membership would then need to be enforced collectively by the group."

Does this require the people in the group to all know each other? Are there existing methods to enforce 1 person / 1 vote on a larger scale where people do not know each other?

    Frogmouse... this kind of hits on my post about "ETHOS," in which members of a community/organization voluntarily engage into a rules-based engine that governs DAPPs, ownerships, votes, etc.

    In this regard, you wouldn't need to actually "know" another community member. You would know that it is a community based on a value system.

    This is still very ambiguous, and may not work for all scenarious. Most communities are based on vicinity, not values... Lots of thinking yet to do...

    There are several models out there in the literature. One idea from Ghost in the Machine and later in Daemon is the formation of a holon governed presumably using a holocracy hosted on the ETH blockchain. (
