What if Psychological Distress came from inequality and domination ? | P2P Foundation

What if Psychological Distress came from inequality and domination ? | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“The impression of healthy competition among a wide variety of counselling and therapy approaches that this picture may give is, in my view, in itself misleading, for in fact they all share one very important assumption. What’s more, despite the appearance of radical contrast, they share it also with psychiatry. This is the assumption that psychological disturbance has its origin within the individual, whether the latter is conceived of as mind or body.

Predictions for the Year 2514: Dystopia That Feels Like Utopia

Predictions for the Year 2514: Dystopia That Feels Like Utopia | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Humanists typically look toward the future with extreme pessimism, assuming conditions of technological oppressiveness: Surveillance is rampant, the human being has been shorn of dignity, the state is overpowering, and individuality is a lost cause before the powerful onslaught of the collective. Zamyatin and Orwell are prime examples of this kind of extrapolation. There are also instances of humanist utopias (beginning with Thomas Moore and continuing with the socialist utopias of William Morris and Edward Bellamy), but they tend to be curiously bloodless, lacking the conviction and richness of the dystopias.

What is a phone? - The Networked Society Blog | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

I was recently participating in an innovation workshop attended by some of the leading organizations in the North American telecom market. We were brainstorming when somebody made the following comment: “We as an industry are in a great place. The phone has become central to all interaction – it’s in the middle of everything and all others work around it, through it, and with it.” Everybody liked that comment. Everybody agreed. It made everybody feel good. There was only one small problem.

(235) Decent decentralization. - Distributed Autonomous Society - Quora

Decentralized technology allows us to define a new kind of sovereignty, one which does not rely on the historical implementations of governance and centralized systems of money issuance. But to do so we must first define and declare our rights as a global people and outline the world that we wish to live in. Then we must utilize this technology to make sure it happens. We can build a better world for everyone - ideologically as well as technologically.
