3 103

It is also necessary that a majority of the hashpower decide voluntarily to work on continuing exactly that block.

It's a consensus.
Non-violent.
Totally legitimate.

A new form of executive power.

I think miner incentive exist either way, but I get your point.

Voluntary participation is the key here.
