Robert Paterson reflects on the John Boyd Conference 2008. It’s pretty grim reading about the state of the world, but he does have suggestions for what to do (on both macro and personal levels).
The search for efficiency and the urge to consume has set us all up like a row of dominoes – there is no buffer, no resiliency. . . .
We have to shift the Mindset and hence the design of our world from Efficient Machine to Resilient Organism. We have to shift the mindset of the leader from the hero/Saviour to the servant leader.
Above all, each place has to be largely self sufficient in:
- Money/Stored wealth/Credit/Savings
