If we were to design and build a new futuristic city, we’d want to eliminate vehicle deliveries. It would eliminate lots of boring jobs, streamlining the purchases which were going to happen anyway, and freeing up peoples’ time and mental energy. You would have a delivery chute from a tower, going into every home, with a cushioned mattress piece at the end - but this relies on plenty of assumptions though, like the absence of terrorism exploitability, or the funding of such a massive building project, which isn’t compatible with modern elitist society. So it’s not possible right now. It’s not a compossible enough idea.
We can’t get rid of or simplify things like advertising, trade or prices without having the full control and know-how of how it could be taken care of. Better systems come into place through compossibility, not dialectical increments. It’s grand leap creativity versus incremental creativity; it’s policies versus politicians. Some things are impossible to change about the world right now, and so we need to focus on the actual changes which are possible - starting from the human, moral argument, the moral cause which can raise the power of the people in collective motion. This is what gives us intrinsic motivation and a sense of wonder and excitement.
To know more we need to engage ourselves closely with the kinds of thinking which actually go on in designing these systems and keeping them in place. We need to be one step ahead. We all need to think more and target how to actually get to what we want to know. We need to keep asking ourselves and challenging ourselves to think.
The world needs a shift away from parasitic elite systems of control - that is the main fundamental aspect. It’s not detail, but we need to get involved with the detail and actually cover the specifics in our thoughts, when we think, to be able to defend our views and explain more. That’s how we can convince people to defend meritocracy and convey that it’s the right system to get behind - why? Because no amount of anything less is actually substantial enough to change their minds for the right reasons - it would be magical thinking and delusion, then, to think we can convince people of rational understanding by emotional or psychological means. Offer the full picture and state your case. Be reasonable and stay calm, with your responses measured and fair.
Focus on the people who would care the most about meritocracy right now and who will be persuaded by argument. When we reach 10% of the population, everyone else will join our side.
We begin by focusing on the fundamentals. These are mathematical principles that cut across all other aspects. That’s what we’re supposed to be thinking about.
