Great great OP...
I was thinking and trying to picture the whole of "issues" happening in the world right now and what that all meant. I won't go into all of that
for obvious reasons but I thought of a few things that might help us view a solution for all theses problems.
Basically, yes the world is in bad shape right now, it's definitly not running for the good of all of mankind but for the interest of a few. It used
to be pretty easy for theses few to keep a tight gasp on humanity and keep people controlled so that the changes happenning are thoses that they
But there's in my opinion a very big phenomenon happenning right now... It's mostly caused by two factors, the democratisation of information and
the digital generations coming up.
We all know that the internet is changing the game but it seems to have a few effects that most people and organisations are un-aware of.. It is
turning new generations into "socialists" or people with the feeling of being inter-veined or inter-connected with society. That's why we're
seeing all theses great things coming out of the web but what we don't see is the soft, slow and passive change is has on all of us. It is basically
weakening the whole concepts of self for a concept of collaboration. Also, goverments are being help more accountable because of that phenomenon and
as a result, the whole system including corporations.
I think despite all the doom and gloom, this phenomenon is only at it's infancy and is set to grow. We're kind of at a transition right now, most of
the population still doesn't have access to the internet or "the information grid" and some of the generations in power right now simply don't
understand it and don't want to use it.
But 10-20-30 years from now, the majority of the population on earth will be connected by mobile technology and will be part of the discussion. That
soft wind will be simply too strong to contain and control, mankind will drive it's societies through it. About the majority of people being
connected, it's a fact, not just speculations, check google's zeitgiests on youtube.
The people and organisations controlling/manipulating makind right now ARE on the brink of being extinct UNLESS something major happens and that we
get thrown back.
This whole issue is why it's so important to keep the internet free, open source and out of politics and regulations.
