“Because of what she represents. In an age when democracy is under assault, she hints at the emergence of a new kind of power, a convergence of youth, popular protest and irrefutable science. And for her loudest detractors, she also represents something else: the sight of their impending obsolescence hurtling towards them.”
The future is networked and feminine. Our market-dominated era is waning. A brand new network-dominated period is rising. We want leadership that goes past capitalist, market-oriented considering. This is a elementary shift in our deeply held perception methods. It goes to harm. Like the Protestant Reformation after the creation of print know-how, it should possible be messy. Reactionary forces are already combating the patriarchal market financial system counter-reformation. They might win the battles however will lose the conflict — as a result of each technology dies.
“We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art, and very often in our art, the art of words.” —Ursula Okay. Le Guin (1929-2018)
We can determine on what side of history we wish to be. We may also do our small half. Each of us could make sense of some of the complexity round us — local weather change, refugees, populism, surveillance, misogyny, and many others. We don’t must do it alone. An aggressively engaged citizenry is the counter to the demagogues. Don’t disguise. There isn’t any escape. We are all on this collectively.
“Politics hates a vacuum. If it isn’t filled with hope, someone will fill it with fear.” —Naomi Klein
My small half in the revolution helps individuals to suppose. Sensemaking, particularly in a sea of misinformation, is a vital talent. I preserve exploring and testing higher methods to Seek > Sense > Share. I base these on what we’ve discovered to date — similar to the want for range & inefficiency — and the place we have to go — similar to retrieving gender balance.
As Greta Thunberg mentioned, “You don’t need to spend two weeks on a boat to do your part to avert our climate emergency. You just need to do everything you can, with everyone you can, to change everything you can.” The similar goes for each mandatory change in society. Our hope for the future is that collectively we are able to make the community period smarter.
