Attention or something more complex - not named yet - which attention will make an important element and part of, may become a new generator of potentials instead of toaday’s monetary currencies controled by central institutes in the hands of whoever with undisclosed intentions.
It most likely will be based on cooperative concepts instead of competitive ones. The goal is exactly not to gain competitive advantage and to make attention to a marketable good. The competitive concept was necessary and useful for an industrialized economy.
We are entering the transition to postindustriality and start to become aware first precursors of what might be ahead. The idea of an “attention based currency” is just one in myriads of precursors. Those precursors will mentally as well as physically invade our lifestyle habits and the tecnical, ligistic, administrative, economic, financial, political and legal infrastructures designed & built to grant, enhance and protect them like swarms of locusts -and many will experience that as a plague.
The goal is to build inventive, innovative and creative potentials. This will save a lot of material and technically transformed energy and generate randomly accessible potentials of transformative and formative powers of diffferent kinds instead of the very poor choice of forms of random energy.
Freedom of Speech is really nothing but a sentimental pretext for media to flood the public with trash information suffocating freedom of thinking. Without freedom of thinking there is no freedom to discuss at all!
Freedom of thinking inexorably requires courage to think. - You object, this doesn’t need courage?
How about e.g. overpopulation, abortion, euthanasia, antisemitism, pornography, prostitution, divine discontent, divine unfailability and almightiness?
How much do You dare do think and go Your own way instead of following authorities You accepted without ever getting aware of your motives to follow?
