Catalyst in detail: Sun, 15 Nov 2020 07:20:56

Attempting to accurately predict things forces us to master an understanding of the secrets of history itself. Focus for a moment on this selection from the 2013 futurist “Catalyst” thesis by Harry Bentham: “We are currently able to witness transnational political actions, e.g. global protests and formation of transnational political will, to an extent that would be impossible before the internet. This is a trend that does not carry good news for the traditional Nineteenth Century nation-states we are living in. It undermines the capacity for any nation-state to live in isolation from world opinion, and to base decisions on some kind of national consensus independent of the political will of humanity. Such a possibility would likely not have been as notable in the past, because the expansion of the world-system seen today has been due to the increases in networking from better transport and communication technology. Because of this, the consequence of the internet is that the communication option, i.e. the ‘political’ option, of the global system becomes clearer to everyone.” The truths of modernity must be acted upon, techno-liberation is necessary. http://www.clubof.info/p/catalyst.html
