There is absolutely no need for an extraordinary person to arrive and “mark” us in order for us to become ourselves, in fact, the opposite. What is genuinely ourselves is already there.

When one has seen the essence of someone, it engenders an enduring trust. That’s why some pupils have a rude awakening when they realise that their teachers didn’t really see that much of who they really are and were more concerned with giving the impression that they had rather than actually doing so

Education is a key area to consider when promoting inclusive growth. Improving the availability and quality of education expands the talent pool in the labor force and upgrades and broadens its skills base. Early childhood development programs, for example, have been demonstrated to provide lifelong educational benefits and the foundation for success in the workplace.
expands talent pool in labor force...?
oh my.
success in the workplace...
This agenda is all the more important because rising inequality can produce a backlash against globalization and technological change, both of which are major drivers of economic growth. Rather than attempting to restrain them, policies must address their more disruptive effects in a careful and imaginative way, through education and retraining programs, more flexible labor markets that allow workers to adjust to changes in the economic environment, and well-designed safety nets to support them through the process. International cooperation will be key to managing some aspects of globalization, especially regarding taxes on mobile capital.
whoa.
At a time when the world is concerned with both slowing economic growth and rising inequality, policies that can be simultaneously pro-growth and pro-equality merit close consideration. It is time to stop trying to re-slice the pie and start ensuring that it gets bigger in a more inclusive way, so that there is more to go around and more people get a slice.
no wonder.

via Paul B. Hartzog who writes:
"While I do think we should try and experiment with innovations like this, ultimately the human incentive for action should be care, compassion, definitely not reward. Furthermore, the notion of the "basic income" should never be represented or implemented as a reward, or it isn't what "basic income" means. A "basic income" system would provide a fair/just standard of living for each human REGARDLESS OF OTHER FACTORS (like interaction or participation). Receiving income through innovative networks like this "Resilience" one should be IN ADDITION TO the "basic income" and definitely NOT the means of providing one in the first place."

Misconceptions about Sociocracy bit.ly/1iEqsxh
Once the blueprint of the new organizational structure has been adopted, the misconception is that any implementation strategy is acceptable. The ends justifies the means. At Zappos, the CEO sent an ultimatum to employees — embrace holacracy or accept a buyout. Empowering employees was thus expected to be the result of exercising absolute authority. A mixed message leading to mixed results.
The implementation process must itself be empowering and include employees’ ideas and ensuring that they understand and embrace the change. The best approach is for the top executives to tend to their own responsibilities and allow the employees to self-organize with the help of a dedicated implementation team.
[..]
Executives and directors often try to take themselves out of the process as if the change only affects operations and middle managers. They assume they will still have autocratic power over any decisions made. But sociocracy requires a fundamental redistribution of authority in the whole organization. There are mechanisms for measurement and correction but how a team or department accomplishes its mission is under their control as long as it doesn’t negatively affect the work of another or is in conflict with the purpose of the organization.
[..]
A self-sustaining company is different from an employee-owned company. Employee owned companies are just as often managed autocratically as private companies and stockholder owned corporations. A completely sociocratic company is controlled equally by all its members,  not the board.

"Student Attitudes Matter"- @PrincipalKafele But important to recognize that attitude is evidence of disconnect, not Ss character #njpaecet2


Of particular timeliness today are Cage’s ideas about human nature, art as a form of constructive anarchy, and silence as a counterpoint to mutual reactivity — something that helps us enlarge rather than contract each other’s goodness.
from cage post
While some of his fellow faculty members dismissed the subject as “irrelevant” and mocked its premise, the university agreed to let Buscaglia teach it on the condition that it be without course credit and he teach it free of salary in his spare time. Over the three years that followed, the course — not a scholarly or deeply philosophical study of love but “a sharing of some of the practical and vital ideas, feelings and observations” related to the human condition — earned Buscaglia the moniker “Dr. Love” and became one of the university’s most popular classes, drawing students of all ages and backgrounds. In 1972, Buscaglia published the most universal and important of those ideas in a slim and potent volume titledLove: What Life Is All About (public library).

@leashless - as predicted.. Bitnation Registers First Refugees on the Blockchain http://t.co/fMzrVhhT9a

Original Tweet: https://twitter.com/TheAnalytic/status/645713581720272896
The blockchain-based Bitnation project has been touted as "Governance 2.0."  Anyone can record births, marriages, deaths, property contract and more on the blockchain using a unique "signature" to identify individuals. Therefore, intermediary officials such as civil-law notaries are made obsolete by the blockchain, on which transactions are processed and recorded.
why do we need to do that..?


There are, forever, swamps to be drained, cities to be created, mines to be exploited, children to be fed. None of these things can be done alone. But the conquest of the physical world is not man’s only duty. He is also enjoined to conquer the great wilderness of himself. The precise role of the artist, then, is to illuminate that darkness, blaze roads through that vast forest, so that we will not, in all our doing, lose sight of its purpose, which is, after all, to make the world a more human dwelling place.
