Connected

Tons of emails but this sorta stuck out for it's provocation:

Societies have alternated between:

  • Decentralized societies with slow change that laid the basis of a radically new type of social and economic stage
  • The resulting centralized societies with rapid economic growth and social development
  • Following the above patterns, the next stage after capitalism should be similar to Primitive and Land-duty societies.

Therefore:

  • Globalization will eventually result in capitalism's collapse
  • Government and the economy will decentralize, becoming more local and more global
  • Central government will have an enabling role rather than a controlling one
  • Devolved self-managing small economic units will perform large-scale production
  • Automation will remove the need for the working class's physical labor
  • Some physical labor will remain for a long time and with it remnants of the capitalist and working classes
  • The class that will dominate the next society hasn't formed yet
  • This class is likely to be self-employed information product creators
Way to light and not totally thought out BUT it IS interesting ... I can see that the role of government is changing (becoming less valuable to todays societies) and the role of the UN, NGOs and private foundations are increasing their awareness campaigns and impact on developing societies.

Automation is coming at a speed that not many would believe - right in front of our eyes. Employment and the pre-war ideas about retirement and education are drastically changing.

Face it - what is above is there - but coupled together, the combination of what is above is shattering. The rapid intoduction of technology and fast information flow is quickening the pace.

Scary? .... email and let me know what you think.

While scary, I would love to believe that's what is going to happen. Still, I don't think you're right...
