Quora – What should humankind resolve to do jointly in 2020?

Cooperate, to the best of our limited abilities.

Accept diversity, at the same time as we strive to identify and maintain those boundaries that are actually necessary for our survival.

Accept change is a part of life.

Consider that money and markets, in the presence of automation and abundance, actually pose significant and increasing risk to life and liberty; and start developing a wide variety of systems based in cooperation and abundance; as we begin our transition away from money and markets.

Accept that complexity demands limits on freedom, and not let that be an excuse for imposing limits that are of benefit to a few at cost to the many.

Accept that eternal uncertainty is a necessary part of real complexity, and not let that be an excuse for inaction or the avoidance of difficult or unpleasant actions that need to be done.
