Decentralization and Diversity: Keys to Survival

Decentralization and Diversity: Keys to Survival

We have today tremendous forces at work driving us toward centralized control, one world government, and perhaps even totalitarianism. These will inevitably collapse, but not before causing great pain and suffering – as always. What can we do to survive? Decentralization and diversity are the keys. To succeed, both are essential. How might this work in practice?

Democracy? Who Needs It When We’ve Got G3P

Even though we can’t do anything about where the world is headed, it is always helpful to understand as much as possible about what is actually happening. Why?

Big things are definitely happening today, even if they have not yet managed to reach broadly catastrophic dimensions.

You may have wondered why, despite so many smart and powerful people around almost everywhere, and having all the advantages of artificial intelligence, things seem so messed up today. And steadily getting worse rather than better. COVID certainly didn’t help things but what if it just accelerated greatly a longer underlying trend toward collapse or catastrophe? Or just maybe, pushed the world along more quickly toward a lasting fix?
