Everyone Failed To Ride This Bicycle. The Reason Behind Is Mind-Boggling

Everyone Failed To Ride This Bicycle. The Reason Behind Is Mind-Boggling | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Watch this and one might get an idea why (social & system) change is so difficult to come by - even if an old way of doing things is considered broken. 
If whole societies relentlessly got and get told and taught that ‪#‎TINA‬ "There is no alternative" to neoliberal capitalism, it will appear there isn't indeed - even though there are ‪#‎TAPAS‬ "There are plenty of alternatives". 
The mind(-set) seems to be the key.

The Economic Realms: The Global Brain

The Economic Realms: The Global Brain | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
In the future, and indeed, in economics itself information, and complexity, and how to deal with it will become vital. However, such knowledge is very incomplete, and often inaccurate. With Transfinancial Economics in its advanced state it would be possible to get a highly accurate understanding of the workings of economics in Real-Time. As for the "Global Brain" presented here, this could also play a vital role in the future. Hence, its inclusion. It is also similar to the proposal of the Universal Debating Project in which we would have a Wikipedia of the pro, and con arguments for specific topics. http://www.p2pfoundation.net/Universal_Debating_Project

When we use words filled with positivity, like “love” and “peace”, we can alter how our brain functions by increasing cognitive reasoning and strengthening areas in our frontal lobes. Using positive words more often than negative ones can kick-start the motivational centers of the brain, propelling them into action.
