If your definition of “intellectual dark web” is independent people who are objective thinkers, seekers of knowledge and genuine understanding through reason and analysis, and see truth as a fundamental value, then yes. I am not currently affiliated with any member of the intellectual dark web.
A separate question is whether you can have both the search for truth and diplomacy together. That is one question the PeaceMatrix™ may ultimately present. Is politics like sausage, that it is best kept unseen from the people, who are best let to live their own lives? I don’t know, but I wonder if our current system is imperfect, and I wonder if people can be objective and search for truth. I wonder if people can work through their frustrations, learn to see all sides, not be reliant on politicians, and whether a culture of objective diplomacy can grow in this world towards peace.
That may be one of the ultimate questions for the PeaceMatrix™ system as it develops.
