Collective Intelligence, Cultural Intelligence, Earth Intelligence, Peace Intelligence

How to Access Your Curiosity, Compassion, and Courage

We all face the abyss of three great divides: ecological, social, spiritual.

Post-Truth: Trapped in fake news digital echo chambers. You can’t know, nobody knows.

Post-Democracy: Families, communities, societies breaking apart. You can’t connect, nobody can.

Post Human: Lost connection and agency. You can’t transform, nobody can.

Phi Beta Iota: Professor Schummer of MIT makes some useful points but he completely misses the reality that it is not Donald Trump, but rather the Deep State, the Zionists, Hollywood, and #GoogleGestapo that have with malice and knowledge of falsity aforethought, set out to destroy families and communities and societies.  This all started in the industrial era when factories destroyed communities, ethics, families, and kinship, but was taken to an advanced level in the information era, when top down propaganda and control by the 1% replaced bottom up collective intelligence with the deliberate intent of eradicating individual critical thinking, family and community support structures, and all semblance of cultural and social boundaries and norms. He also does not get that Donald Trump, for all his flaws, has tapped into a vast re-emergence of local values, one hinted at in the new book by James and Deborah Fallows linked below. We do indeed need these new structures he speaks of, but they will not be created by the likes of MIT, they emerge from a crypto-distributed open source world that scorns all universities and corporations complicit in past information pathologies and atrocities.
