Privatisierung

the universe is a harsh place for life to survive

why is beauty important?

anyone or anything that brings beauty in such a world

is good

life is precious in the universe (don’t waste it, even if it is a sucky one)

survival was never easy for life in the universe

life is about making life better (increasing the probability of survival of oneself, one’s genes, one’s family, one’s species) every day

if you have a garden: making the garden better a little bit every day

if you have a family: making the family better a little bit every day

if you have a company: making the company a little bit better every day

cultivating something positive

building a positive culture

creators and their techno “babies”: iMacs & iPhones & Linux

for creators such as Steve Jobs just as Linus Torvalds, beauty is important

beauty means simplified pure designs

pure holistic flawless creations

of perfection and functionality and (!) understandability

“like God would have done it”

software beauty is way harder to see for non developers, but it expresses it as the (ex?)maxime of Apple: “it just works”

even if that iphone is far from perfect and many alternatives are in development (please support them even when they are far from perfect)

what has happened since…

1) Apple seems to have been stuck in a limbo between profit maximization and allowing creativity (crash, rebuild, crash, rebuild…)

2) giving up on software-beauty: Apple’s software quality has gone down

3) no-privacy-beauty: was never a priority

4) no-planet-or-human-rights-beauty: Apple never cared much if the supply chain was ethical or based on renewables

5) no-justice-beauty: Apple is stealing taxes via Ireland

(European Commissioner Margrethe Vestager fights tax avoidance of multinationals, follow her on twitter)

(Apple promised to improve on the privacy issue… but guess capitalistic maxims (maximize profits and share prices) are actually often against what consumers want (anything but 1984, but a future that is inspiring))

never stop learning

never give up hope

life only has a slim chance for survival in such a harsh universe

but we will take it

and if everyone does what he/she can

we will prevail

and build a city on mars

poverty is still the #1 cause of death for humans

consider this truth to be self evident,

that work

must always pay off more

than possession

because

if wealth derived from possession

is greater

than wealth derived from work

nobody will invest or work anymore

work will not pay off = society of lazy =

  • lazy super rich (decadence)
  • lazy super poor (unable to make ends meet, no perspective on how to level up in pay and ranks, completely dependent on state welfare))

 

the rule over others, almost always went wrong

(wrong = egoism & (lobby-induced) corruption & mismanagement lead to hunger and uprisings)

so maybe its time for America to reinvent itself?

so maybe its time for everyone to rule themselves?

should not the state educate people how to survive, in balance with nature, by their own hands? (give em a piece of land and the equipment to survive there, there is enough land between the east and the west coast)

rule over others = slavery = exploitation is so damn devilish profitable

the biggest problem is:

  • the “pile of shit problems”, that were created over decades of erosion grew so big, it can not be ignored anymore (it’s like a ship who’s mast has a lot of cracks, but nobody bothers to build a new more sustainable ship)
  • “western” democracy in it’s current form has proven many times to be unable to solve problems in a competent way, so “the world” is in a state of turmoil, lack of orientation and uncertainty, because of a in-competent decision making process plus: the decision making process is so “abstract” that “the masses” lost track, who is actually to blame for what.
  • rule over others = slavery = exploitation is so damn devilish profitable, but the planet belongs to everyone
  • “western” democracy accepted itself as perfect,  did not actively (funding!) search for alternatives to itself (arrogance)
  • thus “western” democracy “forgot” to look for alternatives (can be other forms of democracy)
  • thus did not do any experiment with alternative forms of government
    • (except Chinese communism experimented very “successfully” (more money, more pollution plus all the negative side effects that a money-centric lifestyle brings about) with neoliberal capitalism)
  • “going back” to dictatorship/monarchy can hardly be considered a step forward

US-America needs to reinvent itself

I wish them a lot of success! 🙂

There are (still despite all the cuts to education budget) creative and clever people there!

i just hope there are enough innovative and clever people there that also have a moral compass and i wish them to succeed in their efforts
