And the point is?

This idea of competition between groups and individuals within these groups is abhorrent to them. They are quirky, funny, odd, and often geniuses in disguise. Historians with photographic memories and the ability to synthesize that history, group the actors and weave a story that will have a bar room crowded a round a tiny table listening with rapt attention at the end of an evening, every once in a while exclaiming,"It doesn't get better than this - I'm not kidding you!" Musicians who stop playing and walk away when you ask them why they are not internationally known - you learn to cherish when they play for you - wise enough to know you are listening to beauty: the drawing of chord change, a note, the warm worn tone that can only be grown alone.

What I am attempting to do is to understand some of the great ideas and theories from all spectrums of philosophical, sociological, and political thought that exist in some form or another today, and then, in the best way I know how, illustrate why I believe that some “hybrid ideology” is the most likely course leading to a just society for all.

My goal is to reach as many as I can from all walks of life. If I can in some way inspire someone, somewhere, to take the next step and read literature that is more in-depth, or simply spark an urge to learn again, to take interest in their world - then I'm well on my way to achieving what I set out to do. The world is complicated and so many seem to want to confuse rather than illuminate. There is a way we can make sense of it and truly in the end, we will find the simplest ideas will prevail - we don't all need to be theoretical physicists or social/political science experts. One thing we need to change the world, or at least make a very good start, is to end our collective apathy and ignorance: do what is within the means of each of us, as individuals, to seek an understanding of the world in which we live.

The first question obviously may not be answered by any of us with any real degree of accuracy, but I think it's quite possible that we can come up with some ideas, some notions that even if not from the minds of economists, politicians, etc. can have a realistic bearing on all of our futures. Social media still has a chance but instead of twittering things to tear down we need to twitter things that need to be built up. We start lifting each other up instead of tearing all that we fear down.

Capitalism 3.0. The trouble is if we stay with 3.0 for much longer than a few more hundred years we could be headed towards a dystopian nightmare of epic proportions. The basic idea is so simple that even I can understand it. Don't get me wrong, I'm not being self-depreciating; in a sense I'm being a realist in that these are exceedingly complex issues.
