Emergence refers to the existence or formation of collective behaviors — what parts of a system do together that they would not do alone.

Which is my point.
Only extremely narrowed to feminism and cultural Marxism. Those are already extremist ideologies. I'm looking as well at what amounts to mainstream ideological constructs over the last 100 years that covers everything from American conservatism to Russian Communism. That is essentially the substrate we have to work with when thinking in large enough time frames.
Absolutely every ideological system we have available to build on today will fail utterly within the next 50 years due entirely to our own progress both socially and technologically.
But what we do today will help shape that world, and I can’t see where most of today’s preoccupations, prejudices, and ignorance will fit in our future if we want to survive as a species.
We really do need something new. Radically new that changes our perspective entirely. I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get to a point where I just desperately want to move forward, to innovate, and get passed all of what holds us back. I don’t think we’re gonna do that engaging each other the way we do now.
