Anarchy and swarm intelligence


Interesting post on swarm intelligence on the Center for Anarchic Strategy
A part from telling what swarm intelligence is all about there was this peculiar sentence : crowds tend to be wise only if individual members act responsibly and make their own decisions.  A group won’t be smart if its members imitate one another, slavishly follow fads, or wait for someone to tell them what to do.

Of course this makes sense for someone thinking about anarchy : no boss needed. This is also an important lesson for enterprise leaders or anyone in hierarchical positions : encourage your people to take their own decisions, do not be a boss telling them what to do or to behave as the others do, but ask them to take their responsabilities to help achieve the enterprise goals.
