need to try and assemble some of my political/philosophical World View stuff together into some context... I'm giving up logic/proof for the moment and just trying to mix-master these things to tie them together (hmm, Diagram Of Effects?). Let's call the below "Claims".
- people feel a lack of engagement with politics, their employers, their employees, their society, their neighborhood, etc.
- even small-scale institutions feel impersonal, incongruent
a feeling of engagement requires a sense of FeedBack: of being heard, of having effect
- is a good thing
- isn't finished
- is inevitable
the combination of the previous points leads to economic activity designed as a Market Economy, though humans don't make every (any?) transaction design on a purely rational/optimizing basis.
Maybe I need to write a Pattern Language!
started Fractally Generative Pattern Language Sept'2011.
We had a kinda stable understandable CultUre (Tribal Ism). But it's been in increasing flux since the Enlighten Ment. We've increased FreeDom, but at the price of Commun Ity. The answer now isn't to go back, but to go forward toward models that help us get Commun Ity with FreeDom.
