Global corporate governance is inherently incapable of taking into account the needs of the people upon whom it depends, albeit currently in a parasitic manner. The ‘parasite’ is threatening the well being of it’s host, which is a sub-optimal situation for all concerned. Across all sectors of civil society, the intrinsic rights of individuals are being swiftly eroded, and the inherent responsibilities of governance are being hastily discarded. This is a dangerous situation, and we are on a slippery slope right now.
The corrupting power of the prevailing profit at any price paradigm is threatening the viability of life on this planet. The time we are in are is call to action in itself.
What is most needed now, in my humble opinion, is the capacity to imagine something different, something which has not been effectively tried before, that which is so out of the current paradigmatic box that it is still invisible to most even when it appears amongst us. Some examples of what I feel can empower humanity to climb out of the grave it is digging for itself are already arising in response to the difficulties imposed upon us by the mighty and deadly dangerous “powers that be”.
In Australia, with the most recent change of government, we are experiencing the fastest slide into a fascist state in our short history. Some events in response to this situation are heartening examples of what is possible when we are forced to think and act outside the box. When the government recently stopped funding for the Climate Council the public appeal for funds to keep this vital scientific body alive has seen the first citizen-direct-funded national research body ever in existence. This is an important precedent, there are many other necessary public resources which the government is laying waste to which will need to accomplish a similar model if we are to continue to benefit from their existence. Also, there are aspects of governance which are simply not catered to and need to be created and sustained by the people, for the people – lest we suffer the consequences of their non-existence.
To save ourselves from certain mass enslavement at the hands of a corporate military global control system, and to prevent to irreversible toxification of our only inhabitable planet, we MUST effectively self organise. It may be too late for all I know, however, while there is any hope for a future with any quality of life at all, there is an imperative to act, to create the social systems and interaction structures, to dis-embed from the prevailing consensus trance, and to begin the task of living and working together in new ways, to save all our asses. I understand that if you have read this far, you most likely already get it. So, please lets all get acquainted, and agree to work together on creating a framework that allows us to effectively co-operate, interact, and provide systemic structures that account for and address the needs of the many – before it’s too late.
