With no solutions in sight, human nature will grasp anything seemingly better than status quo. Tyrants and despots fill such voids. Drowning men will grab twigs to save their drowning lives. In desperation, we’ve proven to be: Not. Too. Smart.
More people see the writing on the wall. Looking for solutions, all they see are twigs. Obama, Bush, term limits, public funding – more of the same.
With the launch of even more in-your-face investigative online news outlets such as FirstLook Media’s TheIntercept even more people will find out how indirect democracy + capitalism has failed their dreams. Disillusionment = good.
Mr. Smith, the malevolent program in the tale The Matrix described humanity as a virus. We expand and devour until nothing remains. Inspired by our current socioeconomic reality our behavior does indeed resemble this microorganism. We’re all playing our part. It’s not just the psychopaths, the one percent or the illuminati.
And how could we do anything else but ravenously destroy the planet and ourselves? Indirect democracy + capitalism motivates and rewards such behavior, behavior as natural to being human as any other. Given the context that is. Change the context and humanity too will change. Change the container and we will change people and the world simultaneously.
Solutions that change the system and the rules offer hope. Add a transition strategy and you create unprecedented everything™.
You can be a part of unprecedented change. It costs nothing but your time. Your time is precious. So your investment in working with us, will return the immeasurable: a better future for everyone.
Bereft of solutions creates opportunity. Here’s how to seize yours.
