upon googling ‘what do you call people telling people what to do’:

people who tell people what to do – thesaurus. disciplinarian. noun. someone who thinks that people should obey rules and punishes people who do not. autocrat. noun. someone who tells other people what to do without caring what they think. dictator. noun. tyrant. noun. nag. noun. control freak. noun. slave driver. noun. …

huge red flag we’re doing it wrong..

and obvious to many now.. (evidenced by people demanding rights and voice.. and some even grokking the depth of supposed to ness.. of school/work et al)

but ..so much is not so obvious (like giving/demanding rights/voice only perpetuate the telling people what to do ness) and so killing us deeply/unknowingly.. (raised eyebrows, pretending/claiming to hear all the voices, ..et al)

if we don’t let go of all that.. we’ll never get the dance:

‘in undisturbed ecosystems ..the average individual, species, or population, left to its own devices, behaves in ways that serve and stabilize the whole..’ –Dana Meadows

imagine if we just focused on listening to the itch-in-8b-souls.. first thing.. everyday.. and used that data to augment our interconnectedness.. we might just get to a more antifragile, healthy, thriving world.. the ecosystem we keep longing for..

what the world needs most is the energy of 8b alive people

adding page this day (tweets from vinay – at bottom of this thread: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1290486109642743811.html):

I wanted to manifest my power as not being told what to do.

The world expected me to manifest my power as telling other people what to do.

What am I supposed to do now, write a book of law?

So that’s cracked my head right open.

Because now I can add “telling people what to do” in my list of potential game moves. I have to figure out how not to get entangled in control (the main failing on this strategy) but, if people want rules and structure, I can publish mine.

structure maybe.. complex simplicity.. ie: 2 convers as infra.. but not telling others what to do

As no less a poet than Bjork famously said, “I thought I could organize freedom, how Scandinavian of me.”

True power is getting an individual to believe that the way you want them to behave is the way they want to behave.

I’m careful how I think about care.
Care can be oppressive.
Care can be debting.
Care is nasty when someone assumes they know what is best for another person- Or group -Or a forest.
Care can be a violent implemention of a model.
Or care can be responding to complexity w affection
