This blog is for anyone who thinks society is messed up but doesn’t know how to fix it.
We all know there are problems. We read about them and see them every day. We feel them in our guts. I don’t need to make some declaration of decadence, enumerating every part of society that is oppressive or painful, for you to understand what I’m saying. You know it already. You have years of experience that validate this simple notion: we can do better.
But how do we move from discontent to constructive action?
There are many answers to this question, many ideologies that offer a basis for action. If you’re satisfied with those, I don’t know why you’re reading this. Go do something. But if you’re like me, you haven’t found a belief system that actually shows us how to fix things. You don’t know what to do, because you don’t know where to start.
So let’s discuss what we want our communities to look like and examine why prevailing ideologies won’t take us there. Let’s explore new ways of organizing that can circumvent the failings of our current social structures. Let’s move beyond petty factionalism; let’s look at why people do the things they do, and figure out how we can all work together. Let’s come up with a solution that is as pragmatic as it is virtuous. Let’s find out where to start.
Let’s talk about the future.
