Ten years ago, everyone knew that the taxicab monopoly was here to stay. Then came Uber and Lyft, underdog innovators disrupting the establishment. Five years ago, everyone knew you couldn’t make a private currency. Then came Bitcoin.
Today, everyone knows that you can’t compete with 9-1-1.
The fact is that most people tend to believe the status quo is unchangeable. They look at the world today and assume that it will always be that way.
But change is rarely predictable, and the world is never static. Innovative start-ups like Google and PayPal spring up every day. They take on the massive, entrenched competition and win. They change the world, not just a little bit but radically.
The history of the past twenty years especially, since the rise of the Internet, has been a history of disruption. Sometimes it’s big companies that are disrupted. Other times, as in the case of Uber and Bitcoin, they’re disrupting the United States government or its pet monopolies.
Each of these changes has two things in common. First, a large pack of nay-sayers have looked at what they were doing and said that it couldn’t be done. You can’t compete with the US dollar. You can’t go up against the taxicab monopoly and win. Every time someone tries to change the world, most people respond with variations of apathy or disapproval.
Second, each innovator had a small band of believers to help them grow. People who knew the status quo could be challenged. People who knew you could build something new and wonderful. People who got on board, told their friends, and helped the innovation spread.
These believers, these advocates, were the spark that started the fire. They were the catalyst for change.
Today, plenty of people think private protection is impossible. Plenty of nay-sayers claim you can’t create a decentralized, agile, civilian protection force that cares for the poor as well as the rich. They assert that the police monopoly cannot be challenged.
But at Peacekeeper that’s exactly what they’re doing.
Peacekeeper is the world’s first private protection app.
You might have already heard of Peacekeeper. Last year they launched Peacekeeper 1.0. It was a big hit, but it had some problems. The app was buggy. The size of peoples’ network was limited.
However, they’ve learned from what went wrong last time, and are launching Peacekeeper 2.0. It’ll be more flexible, more powerful. When you’re in danger, you’ll be able to call on the entire Peacekeeper network, sending an alert to every Peacekeeper user in the area.
They’re partnering with elite self-defense and emergency-response organizations to make sure Peacekeepers have access to the best training.
Peacekeeper 2.0 is challenging the entrenched State monopoly on protection. They’re creating an alternative to 9-1-1.
Plenty of nay-sayers have already said this is impossible. We’re not interested in them. We’re interested in the innovators, the builders. The believers. The people who see a possibility for real change—change you can actually trust, not some politician’s phony promises—and want to make it happen.
We want the people brave enough to challenge the status quo. The people who know an underdog can change the world.
If that’s you, sign up for the Indiegogo campaign today and help make Peacekeeper 2.0 a reality.
