In Utopia there must be a universal understanding of privacy, transparancy and freedom. This can not be delegated to an institution because it will end up in a dicatorship.

Is the share economy the new Utopia?

Will in a share economy all Maslow needs be met?


http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/sep/28/sharing-economy-internet-hype-benefits-overstated-evgeny-morozov


Not everybody seems to think so.


Again we are creating Utopia as mind excersise, not as a design to be implemented.


Another remark. The share economy is a strategy of young people that have no access to things they aspire.



Self-Transcendence

Posted on January 25, 2015 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (371)

"What a man can be, he must be."[10] This quotation forms the basis of the perceived need for self-actualization. This level of need refers to what a person's full potential is and the realization of that potential. Maslow describes this level as the desire to accomplish everything that one can, to become the most that one can be.[11] Individuals may perceive or focus on this need very specifically. For example, one individual may have the strong desire to become an ideal parent. In another, ...

The open society is a concept originally suggested in 1932 by the French philosopher Henri Bergson,[1][2] and developed during the Second World War by Austrian-born British philosopher Karl Popper.[3]

 

Popper saw the open society as standing on a historical continuum reaching from the organic, tribal or closed society, through the open society marked by a critical attitude to tradition, up to the abstract or depersonalised society lacking all face-to-face transactions.[4]

The old and the weak

Posted on January 14, 2015 at 9:35 AM Comments comments (0)

One of the big questions in Utopia is: how to deal with the old and the weak? Some envision the Brace New World: we will terminate them. I envision a more compassionate world were we will have a preventives system and they care of the old and weak, because life is sacred and not a technical thing.

Physiological needs

The future has changed

Posted on January 6, 2015 at 7:15 PM Comments comments (8)

I admire does who talk about the future with conviction, because the future is unknown. Someone said the best we to predict the future is to create it. I do not know.

The future has changed. The changes are gone be big, dramatic and swift. It is going to be a tsunami. That is what I sense.

Neo-liberalism has reduced human beings to commodity.
