For the purposes of a Network State, according to the author Balaji Srinivasan , there must be one, and only One Commandment, a moral innovation that sets this state apart from the existing system. It’s an appealing concept. If you just have one point of differentiation, one moral imperative, one unique selling point, as it were, you can rally enough people behind this concept and create your own digital Network State. Yet, as appealing as this concept is, it’s about as solid as the idea that you can explain all of religion by the Golden Rule. It’s a guiding principle but it’s not the whole thing. One Commandment works well enough for products and services, but it is unlikely to e adequate substance to hold an actual state together.
