If we continue to move forward with can-kicking, partial solutions, we are likely to just continue to experience pain and destruction. The whole system is corrupt and obsolete. Therefore the whole system needs to be replaced. Not burnt down, but carefully and thoughtfully replaced. Redesigned. Regenerated. Local and wholesome.
redesign: cure ios city
we have largely been coasting on the work of our ancestors and we do not really know of what we are capable.. This decade can, should, and, I think, must be one of the most creative, generative and optimistic ones in human history..t
science of people/whales in sea world
Below is the set of principles that I have collected around this purpose.
The Principle of Choice. Designs should be oriented towards increasing the capacity for choice and building on top of that increasing capacity..t
The Principle of Wholeness. Designs should be mindful of creating and working with well integrated wholes.
The Principle of Relationship. Designs should endeavor to place responsibility on real human relationships and endeavor to support the construction of strong, trusted relationships and infrastructure around relationships.
Principle of Development. Designs should strive to build capacity from the ground up, rather than over-ride failures at the ground level with top-down capacity. Make people more capable of being responsible, rather than taking their responsibility away. Build structures at the human scale that can carry more responsibility, etc.
The Principle of Subsidiarity. Designs should push as much responsibility and authority at the most immediate level that is consistent with their resolution.
imagine if we design so that our focus is less on problems/solutions/responsibilities and more on augmenting interconnectedness
Principle of Unbundling. Designs should take care that no choice should be bound to any other choice, unless this binding is strictly required by the nature of the choice itself.
Principle of Rights and Responsibilities. Designs should make rights symmetric with responsibilities. (e.g., the right to free speech should be replaced the the right and responsibility of meaningful communication; the right to private property should be replaced with the right and responsibility of stewardship of property).
The Principle of Fiduciary Responsibility. Designs should ensure that whenever a relationship is highly asymmetric (e.g. when AI is on one side of a relationship and not the other) that the relationship be returned to symmetry by establishing a fiduciary responsibility on the part of the stronger party.
The Principle of Network Optimization for Collective Intelligence. Designs should strive to always promote the evolution of the human social network towards increasing collective intelligence. For example:
– All nodes (people, families, communities, etc.) should be resourced so as to provide minimum viable signal.
– Each node should be able to refuse an offered transaction without fear of privation.
– The generator functions of network topology should balance efficiency and resilience.
unless we design deeper.. and if so.. then focus on intellect ness.. becomes irrelevant/red-flag

wouldn’t be social freedom.. nicer.. but not freedom
