The opportunity in "the Great Reset" to not build back better, but build better for all

in OCD13 days ago

I was reading an article linked to me about the conspiracy surrounding "The great Reset" and the phrase, Build Back Better that is being put in circulation and repeated by world leaders in various forms. while I am not going to get into the conspiracy side of it, I am not sure the repetition of phrasing is any longer an indicator of collusion, as we live in a world of the internet engineered to repeat messaging, which is why memes go viral. When it comes to leadership phrases, it is very likely that the same process is in play, though this doesn't discount the possibility that there is organized coordination.

What I found more interesting was that "The Great Reset" was attributed to the World Economic Forum and has a page dedicated to it, https://www.weforum.org/great-reset. Along with this there was an image for focal points that where they are looking to turn their attention, and a few caught my own.

sub-sectioned with the Harnessing the Fourth Industrial Revolution which is about automation of traditional manufacturing using smart services, both Blockchain and Digital Identity are mentioned, which likely go hand in hand. And of course, being the World Economic forum, there is plenty of focus on economics and financial aspects of the eocnomy itself. A few of these are the "revitalization" of the *Financial and monetary systems, with "redesigning social contracts, skills and jobs" seeing the usage of the term Circular economy and interestingly, there was a cluster between "Shaping the Economic Recovery" and "Harnessing the Fourth Industrial Revolution" of, Future of Computing, Future of Media, entertainment and culture and importantly, Digital economy and new value creation.

On top of this, there was quite a few mentioning governance of some kind - Agile governance, Global Governance, Leadership in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Geo-Economics, Corporate governance and of course, Internet governance. Another interesting point was, The future of mobility - and I am not sure if that is going to look at increasing or decreasing the potential to move.

I think that this is interesting in terms of the future adoption of blockchain technology, although there is zero direct mention of decentralized currencies on that graph, but there is "digital economy". While there can be a lot of denial about the potential uses of blockchain, it seems that it is not only very much on the radar, but being touted as a focal point for future development and direction. And of course, we know why, as there is so much else on that list that would benefit from blockchain integration and governance, including making sure that the farce that is the vote count in the US doesn't happen again.

While there is a large risk that governments will use blockchain and identification to further enslave us, which is a very real possibility, it also opens the industry up for mass adoption, which usually means mass innovation. Once there is a significant user base, the game changes as there is no the incentive to not only develop, but bend and break rules for gain.

If you think that the birth of the internet took decades before real user adoption, but once it did the developers stepped in to take advantage of the new creative real estate and explore new experiences. Mass adoption of one technology, means that it will drive the innovation to develop goods and services that flesh out the ecosystem, much like a decentralized network. Would there be Netflix and Spotify, without Napster and The Pirate Bay? Not to mention the development of infrastructure and hardware based on the expansion of social networks, which in turn created an industry of gaming and other services.

A lot of people will see the potential for harm in governments moving into the space, but if the potential in the technology is there, it is very much to be expected, as everyone wants access to value. What we have to remember is that to stop being repressed by the technology implementation, we have to actively build our own pathways and value streams so rather than looking for a way out of the centralized matrix, the matrix is being informed by the people.

The most effective way to do this of course, is through having value that others want, which means building valuable systems and hodling. The distribution of value has to be far more weighted in the hands of the everyday user, not the pockets of the very few. One way to of course start doing this is the redesign of the value points where the average people play, so rather than being contributors to the extraction value, we are all participants in the generation and broad circulation of value generated.

We play mostly in the consumer fields, so the Future of Media, entertainment and Digital economy and new value creation are highly relevant. What this means is that what we are doing here on Hive, is actually already well-aligned with parts of what The World Economic Forum is planning into the future. This doesn't mean that they are controlling our direction, it can be quite the opposite, that we are informing theirs. Our narrative however diverges a little from the catchphrase of The Great Reset, as instead of "Build back better", we are looking to build better for the future.

We don't want a more efficient version of the oppressive system that is currently collapsing around us and needs "resetting" - we want something that empowers and provides us the space to be our best. The problem is that no government is going to build it for us, we are going to have to do it ourselves. The time of convenience is behind us - it is time to build.

As long as the first love remains to be self enrichment at the top, we will remain stranded in the mire at the bottom.
Yes, we have to get out there and become active, not to enrich ourselves, but rather to build up and empower future generations (children) with the skills to become contributing adults.

As I stated in my post today, we are struggling to find an affordable, accredited, coding course for children at poor schools, as the costs for decent courses are astronomical. The only way that we are going to overcome this in the future is for all of the educational supplying companies, or organizations to allocate a 20% free disbursement to their products.

The "Great reset" should be, "Don't repeat the old reset"

I think a big part of the challenge is working out what "contributing" means in an automated world. It is a fundamental change in our culture that we haven't seen possibly ever before at this scale. What do we do when we don't have to work?

The cost of education is going to keep rising globally, as there are less jobs. The competition is going to get harder and it will be increasingly for the rich - at least in the areas that can actually get work.

Two scary scenarios here and in my dreaming mind everyone will live on a basic income grant.
There will be no more salaries and all foods will be converted into pill form.
Everyone will wear one piece body suits made of materials that can regulate temperatures and withstand viruses. Their will be different levels of people and the colors of the suits will distinguish the levels.
None workers green, workers blue, management silver and the executive levels red.
You are welcome to add to this as you like!

Education has always been the thorn in our flesh. So many see education as their personal banks and even now the prices are way beyond the reach of millions.
We spend billions here on education and yet our economy was recently downgraded once again to B-.
Education needs a great revamp. I have never used many of the subjects that I was forced to study and education needs to be aligned to the new technological systems of the world. A rich person and a poor person could perform equally if they both have identical basic beginnings in education.

Definitely headed for a dystopia! :D

I think there is the possibility for decentralized education, especially since there will be so much mobility of wealth. This way, there can be "trustless" education systems, rather than relying on a central point of most likely, failure. Education systems rarely move fast enough these days to keep up with needs.

I cannot agree with you more and it is slowly starting to happen here via the private schools.
Yes, they are expensive, but they at least do not use the official government curiculums.
Jan van Riebeeck landed in the Cape on the 6th of April 1652, as we were taught at school, but Jan van Riebeeck has never featured in any part of my working life. So I don't know why we were taught that at school.
Except maybe to remind me about my birthday which is also on the 6th of April :)

I guess the drive to teach history is to get people identifying with their past in some way - but I have never really understood what the practical use of it is in the way and what they teach.

And to beat it all, history was one of my favorite subjects :)
Oh, and of course Biology, as that young teacher had a body that would make a thousand Camels drool lol.
Just being honest here you know!

hheheh - I had a pretty good English teacher.
In an after class conversation, I discovered she had been a cage dancer in London :)

Massive shifts in the economy will bring forth massive shifts in the ways of the government. It is true that individuals will have to step up and take the guiding role in the upcoming years if we want a big resent and not efficiency of oppression.

This makes me think that if everyone is well-informed about these topics and how to creative his narrative to shape the future we could see not only a better system. Putting and end to the tortured existence of out Frankenstein economic monster. But building something which is finally human-friendly, and nature-friendly. Also, we could see the rise of true democracy. Politics in which people can't be so easily manipulated because they have the facts and can check them out every time they want and know what's at stake for their decisions.

However, there's the lurking predator of more cunning politicians learning how to pull the strings of these ideas to get benefit. Only time will tell. My hopes are on the beginning of something new and better than the previous iteration of human politics and economics.

Information and education still requires the will to act. A big part of the problem is that we trade our power in for convenience, and then wonder why we end up powerless.

The politicians are puppets of the corporations now - they are essentially daces of business.

Yes, well. I can't recommend you enough to read "A Brave New World" then. That's the epitome of trading our rights for convenience.

And, yes. Again the Frankenstein's monster showing who is in control.

I think this is already happening :)

the enslavement or the innovation? :)

While there is a large risk that governments will use blockchain and identification to further enslave us,

We may already be...

Yes XD

I'm hearing more and more people call it The Great Reset. Catchy phrase.

Yeah, which is why so many people will latch on and repeat it. Some with the "Build Back Better" phrasing - so it is no wonder that a lot of people who essentially follow each other, repeat it too. There are smarter ways to coordinate nefarious activities - but memes definitely get driven by the masses - fake ones more so than real.

I think that the chart above might be the look of the Corona virus under a microscope :)

Good morning/evening Notorious TKP.

Speaking of. I recently caught a study that said fake noose travels 6x faster than real noose--I don't know much about real estate but that's a lot!

Great microscope reference

It travels much faster and we like to hang ourselves with it :)
