Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I understand and support your vision, Chris, as you know.
But all too often the fact that an idea or system is superior to it's predecessor has little to do with it's survival chances, in a world where communications is highly controlled.
What is emerging - as what I seen described as the 'adjacent possible' - are complementary systems which people adopt consensually because 'they work'.

Perhaps I'm too far removed from the field of play, but I see many excellent ideas that are effectively rfendered invisible to wenough of the population that they are stillborn.

If you can't see it's there, it's not.

And I fail to see social media as a solution. It's an oxymoron.

Capitalism searches out the darkest corners of human potential, and mainlines them.

It's the ideas you don't see that will change the game, I think.

As Bismarck said, you don't need to know how the sausage is made.

But you do prefer a sausage that won't make you sick.
