We keep making the same mistakes. But really that’s only to be expected. Society evolves through cycles and currently we are in the “crisis” phase of the current cycle. What makes this crisis phase more dangerous then others in the past is the massive leverage of modern technology. So, unlike other social crises this crisis could be existential.
Will we smarten up?
Will we advance and evolve?
Or will we self destruct?
It’s up to us – each and every one of us.
We can allow ourselves to be led like sheep to slaughter complying with the wolves demands. Or we can cultivate the rise of selfless leaders and chart a productive path for the masses.
Either we choose for us – all of us – or we choose for ourselves – me, mine. If we choose for “self” the wolves will decimate the flock and we’ll be forced to start again.
We keep building Towers of Babel for the vanity of a few, when we should be building towers of opportunity for the glory of many.
What shall we choose?
