The Moment for People to Take Control of their Lives is Here

Never in human history has there been a time when the people have been able to take control of their own lives and form for themselves the kinds of societies and political systems that they would wish to live under. Technology and the inability of the nation-state to meet today’s problems has provided mankind with the unique opportunity to for the first time be able to create the kinds of societies that work for us instead of us for them.

For the first time in human history people have available to themselves the means to reorganize society the way that would be good for the people instead of those that rule over them.

Technology has freed us from the constraints of our birth like culture and location. Today we are able to redefine ourselves in global terms. This allows us to transcend our inherited limitations and reinvent ourselves on a global level where we are one with all those that participate at this level.

Global trade has now become the dominant form of trade because it determines all other forms of trade and the internet has allowed us to have a say in this trade and personalize it to meet our individual needs and wants. The internet has created global communities that transcend the boundaries from where they come and created a global community based on the common interests and concerns of people.

These global concerns and interests that people have must be harnessed and organized to meet our common problems on the local level. We must link the local level with the global level and the global level with the local. This would globalize our local conditions and bring them to each other’s attention as well as provide us with the means of globally organizing ourselves to meet our common local problems in a global way.

By thinking differently we will create different results. Therefore, we must rethink ourselves into a new existence. The internet will allow us to begin this process by allowing us to build virtual existences that will allow us to recreate our social and political relationships in new and unforeseen ways.

    Technology, really is something we can all thank. The horizon looks very bright because of these interactions that the Internet made possible, and the amazing things technology can do for us. But I am afraid that man will completely rely on machines to do everything, and in-person interactions may slowly disappear.

    This in my opinion is somewhat true. We do have new advances that we have not had before and we have more freedoms to express out thoughts without getting shunned. However, many people are consumed with the concept of money. Today there has never been such a moment in time where money is the center of society. Money is much like religion. Like people before could not live without religion or a God, people today can’t live without money. Today is a time to take control of our lives but we need to realize that we don’t always have complete control over our lives, there are still some hindering obstacles.

  3. The global nature in which we now live is only at the beginning. It will surely swell larger in times to come, until we are so interconnected with other cultures and nations that it is absolutely common place to be connected with the internet in almost every capacity. We do need to capitalize on this now, and make sure we are a part of it. As far as recreating ourselves, it is always a good time to begin. And that is where we must start: on a personal level, before we can tackle the rest of the world.

    Technology has come through for us. It has to do with supply and demand. We’ve been demanding more needs all over the world in the most safest and fastest way. The internet is the fastest to get trading but not always the safest way. These days kids able to zip through the internet now. Technology has really advance ever since the invention of the PC.
