Social evolution

I want to meet evolutionary systems thinkers on this network.


Human "civilization" is about 10,000 years old. It is time we developed civilization* because, as Gandhi said, "it would be a good idea".

*To do that we have to become fully human; that is, wise as well as knowledgeable.

Our crisis is a birth. But it is up to us to ensure that it does not end in a miscarriage.

How do we do that? Consider doing not just what is possible but what seems to be impossible; like dismantling the world-wide “military industrial complex”.

How? By exposing the justifying assumptions as dangerous, anachronistic and fallacious.

Welcome Janos, to this site. 

 

I agree that we must look for opportunities to do the seemingly impossible, to construct out of a changing system one that is much more in tune with the needs of people.

 

I came to the basic income guarantee idea via Silvio Gesell, monetary reformer in Germany about a century ago, and am a keen observer of the alt money movement. We aren't there yet, but many good people are working, figuring out how our economy should be arranged.

We are a team, then. Do you know others who are already convinced that UBI, MR, LVT? are a "good thing"? These are the difficult but fundamental areas to reform.

 

UBI - Universal Basic Income

MR - ?

LTV- ?

 

Anyway, to find who's who, try to make some posts in the discussion area here, perhaps someone makes a peep.

 

It is a bit difficult to use this platform, as there is little way of calling your actions to everyone else's attention. People become members here, but it is easy to forget to check back to see what's happening (or to originate something like a blog post or a forum entry), unless one keeps a permanent tab on things, through an RSS feed for instance...

 

You know what an RSS feed is, don't you?
