and Justice for all
It seems almost half
of the humanity practices love and charity
while the other-half reaps or
harvests its benefits without an accounting
of any kind, lacking even an acknowledgment, let alone, an expression of gratitude towards the charitable ones for all of
those benefits. Is this moral, ethical, just or even plain and simple fairness?
If a political entity were to exercise power to correct this anomaly, where
would it begin? What will its arguments be? How will it exercise its power?
What ought to be the outcome of this exercise of power? How will the processes
of change be conceived, communicated and managed?
Humanity has been at this mission and vision throughout its
presence on this planet earth and at the beginning of the second decade of this
century does not even have a clue as to what to do, let alone
how to do it. The philosophers and the thinkers throughout the human history
have attempted to formulate thoughts, systems and organizations only to find
them inadequate. Is there a rational explanation as to why humanity has failed?
Will the future be any different? If yes –why would that be?
Optimists, pessimists, realists may view the future in their
own way. How can we know who is likely to be correct? Do we even know how to
measure change, if any, and conclude one way or another?
Humanity created religion, monetary system and many such
tools to help measure what is equitable and fair and inculcate values to ensure
the disparity between the two halves are eliminated. However, all accounts
indicate the gulf is real and ever-widening, an alarming 99% to 1% tilt–
especially when measured in rewards of ownerships and power in favor of the
harvesters; prompting to the fear that the future is desperate for the entire
humanity. Should we continue these systems that have failed? Or is it time to
try new approaches? What might be those new approaches?
My own thinking is that humanity has not yet failed and
instead has succeeded, though lot more needs to be done. In order to perceive these
improvements and to sustain them into the future we need to constantly
miniaturize all our approaches and package them for an individual-use with ease
and convenience that bring wisdom to the point of use. Technologies such the GPS (global
) enable us to apply knowledge, wisdom and collective
labor at the point of use, conveniently. The sociology
similarly has to be organized and made usable, effort-free, to
help the values to be realized where they impact. Technologies that can deliver
this notion will get humanity to its mission/vision. The recursive nature of
applying the values at every instance- of- events without having to know and
remember them all; is the only way to augment the results of this existential -cause.
Deriding humanity for its limitations and failures, seeking punishments to
individuals for any number of their shortcomings either through gods
or political entities, for
such mishaps; has apparently not made things any better-in terms of justice for
all, because those institutions get corrupted, it is surmised; and perpetuate
the status quo.
Should we, instead, socialize these intuitive awareness- of-
unease and start developing technologies
that will de-stress humanity from its anxieties
; communicate humanity’s goodness and values
that are at a seeming disadvantage, to avoid discontent, to avoid revolutions
and/or to avoid misadventures of various kinds? Measurement, management and
redistribution of power by the empowerment
silent-offices for each, might not only convince humanity of its existential-potential
but also its reality for each and every member of the human-society; past,
present and future and thus be a smarter, balanced and well-aware
How could we empower all of the members of the human
community? The way humanity has been doing this is by education, jobs and providing
income to each individual by converting their labor (physical, intellectual and
spiritual) into goods and services. Are there no other ways? Or should we
continue in that same path and extend it to many other non-monetized services
such as the house-work for example, done mostly by women; to give more income
and more self-sufficiency? Could we concurrently opt to have every- one
empowered to plan, develop and execute whatever they like to do by having
access to all of the needed resources- including education- without any
questions asked? Will humans take advantage of those free resources to improve
their own and the other’s lot or will they fritter them away in unsuccessful
efforts? Will they be lazy and live-off of the others, as we believe is what is
happening presently; as mentioned in the opening paragraph? It is apparent that individuals are the ones
most capable of judging their actions and determining what is the right thing
to do in various stages and situations of their individual-lives. However,
leaving them by themselves, to do this alone in a vacuum has not been as
effective; since the resources and the capabilities vary among the individuals
and does it not take all the rest working as a single- organism to make anything
Is smarter humanity design able, create able and manageable? Or
is that yet another tower
To conclude, it seems failure to understand and use the
hidden resources and being alienated might be the causes of human anxieties.
The cure might be just having access to what-ever is needed with greater
convenience. Can humanity rise to this
occasion to save it-self as the Jaredites
of the Book of Mormon
