Decentralization Requires Responsibility. Bitcoin Tech Talk #276

The way to combat censorship is not to switch platforms, but to run your own server. A direct connection between server and client means there’s no central entity that can censor.

We see this in Bitcoin. Users run their own servers called nodes, which allows them to transact with whichever nodes they wish. The act of running your own server is what prevents the censorship of transactions. If we had to submit our transactions to a central place, then that place would be able to censor and could potentially use that power to rent-seek.
