Eli Levine's curator insight, March 15, 10:02 AM

It's all one built upon the other.


What I've been proposing for government is not going to alter the base goals of the political leaders.  In fact, I think it's going to improve their chances of being elected until death, if they follow it correctly, and ultimately preserve our social institutions until the eventual end of the species and, if our descendents are still around, beyond that.

 

What I'm observing, as a political and social scientist, is that through benevolently motivated, effectively sensed and executed policy for the sake of the other in the society, that governments tend to be able to last longer, be more legitimate in the eyes of the public and, ultimately, get carried on, with its members, throughout the generations.

 

Some people simply do not and will not have what it takes to act as these effective, benevolent and empirically grounded leaders, regardless of party affiliation and label.  That is how, I think, our current institutions are failing, because we've populated these political systems with people who don't care, won't care and/or don't have the sense to act for the effective sake of the other for their own sakes.  It's in our legislative systems as well as our administrative systems.  It's killing themselves as much as it's killing our people.  And it's just a brain type who doesn't get the concept of working with others, rather than over or against them.

 

Think about it.

I'm generally a bit reticent about the idea of completely replacing teachers with machinery, but there are still teachers here, setting up the machines. Of course, they aren't being just replaced by machines in this model: the machines are just the repositories of information, like books are in traditional schools. The teachers are really being replaced by the groups of students helping each other learn.

The articles correct, we all talk about needing innovation but when it comes to it, the innovative idea is never supported

John Michel's curator insight, March 8, 6:30 PM

As frustrating as it can be to have people do something different from what you tell them, it can have an even bigger negative effect on your ability to lead. As people realize that what you tell them is not a good predictor of what they really ought to be doing, they stop listening. Then, you have to put in a lot of effort to reestablish trust.
