Our society is so primitive. The dominating force in people’s minds is all about self preservation and survival; caveman stuff. I want it to be more about identity, creativity, self actualisation, the human soul. It’s currently all about ‘jobs’, ‘families’, ‘economy’.
Politics looks like a mad fight over scraps. More of a reallocation of resources rather than solving problems. Why not concentrate on creating new solutions? Wonder what would happen if there were some ubiquitous, ultra cheap tech that gave everyone food, shelter, communications and transport….
