If I gave you all a blank sheet of paper and said to you ‘design the world that we live in from scratch’. What would you put down on that paper?
I would remove any restrictions, as we know that with the right mindset, anything is possible, I would encourage you to unlearn what you know already about how things have always been done. I would encourage to think about your values before commencing on your blueprint for a new world.
Now, some of you might say ‘what’s the point? you can’t change it’ and some might say ‘well I like the world the way it is’. That’s OK.
I wonder if any of you have ever done this exercise or whether you have ever paused to think about it?
I have thought about it a lot, I have written blogs about what I don’t like about what we have now and yet I have never put it down in writing on a blank sheet of paper a blueprint for an alternative.
They great thing is the world can be changed. However, in order to do it, you have to create a blueprint that inspires others to want to be part of it. You need to convince the ‘early adopters’, so that they can carry you ideas to others and help create a movement.
History teaches that nothing last forever and the capitalist religion is waning and it will be replaced by something. It is up to us to design what it is replaced by.
So that’s what I am going to do, take a blank sheet of paper and write down my alternative, if you want join in, let me know.
