Ideapod and freedom

Ideapod Is Ushering In The Age Of Humanity

Hi Kat

Agree with you that supportive outcomes for individual liberty now seem at least as probable as alternatives, and it is by no means a “done deal”.

It seems to me that the greatest threat to the lives and liberties of the vast majority is the very idea of using markets to measure value. In an age of full automation of processes, that single idea becomes the greatest threat to all, as universal abundance has, by definition, zero value in a market.

So yes, we are rapidly developing the technical ability to meet all major challenges, but the general level of change in understandings and beliefs lags far behind the more technical abilities we are developing. The very notion of Truth is at odds with modern understandings based in probabilities and uncertainties; trying to simplify everything down to a simple true/false dichotomy doesn’t appear to be how reality actually works.

And yes – places like ideapod are a way that we can develop ways to bridge that gap.
