What risks are there for Cardano when there's such a prominent figurehead for the protocol? How much power does Charles have over the system? Has the community/protocol decided how it would behave in the event of Charles' death or capture by malicious agents?
An extreme scenario I'm imagining (which I hope will never happen) is that Charles is captured and tortured until the community adopts changes to the protocol which would not have otherwise been adopted. Is this possible? If so, is there a plan for this scenario?
