We need a new societal operating system
New article by Jeremy Lent. We need more than to keep fixing problems in the current system; we need a new system. And for that we first need to inculcate a new worldview of the kind of system we want to create. The modern system is built on the metaphors of nature as a machine that must be conquered and we as individuals are only self-interested. The new metaphors requires interconnection with the web of life, one that sees life "as a self-organizing, self-regenerating complex," and people as part of this web with values of cooperation, collaboration and caring.
