A friend suggested to me that the corporate world works as it is designed to. I agree one hundred percent that the people making the rules and their supporters are benefiting above all others. Ive known this for a while. The time that I have spent in Myanmar, living in Nepal and East Germany I have had an opportunity to experience monarchal, socialist and dictatorial regimes. I have not seen evidence that those in power in these places don’t get it any better in terms of their treatment of citizens and the compulsion for greed and favouritism. It seems to me that it is our acceptance of the very limited capability of egoism in our leaders and tolerance of it in ourselves that is a problem.
In regards to the digital world, health and medical developments, nuclear , robotics and other technology, many of our political, technological, and other creative developments are wonders of human imagination and not the problem. Its ultimately how they are implemented and used, the decisions that are made and the people making decisions that are utilizing these ideas and developments that needs to be considered. If we are going to empower ego maniacs with our political and other social and developmental responsibilities we will continue to struggle as we are. Why do we continue to elect, delegate and tolerate such people? Ultimately the majority of people are easily convinced that these people that we delegate have relevant attributes.
Could it be that individually there is something that we are not understanding about our own state of being and awareness and that this is reflected in our choices in leadership. It seems to me that it is more a concern with living than with written words and convincing oratory that we must consider and to reflect deeply on and about and how we might be contributing to a wayward direction out of our own fear, hate and sense of separation.
