No. To win a game of soccer, you do not need to kill your opponents, if you catch my drift.
We must reevaluate the merit of humanitarian gameplay. We should have built systems that endorse freedom, for real freedom is required to set a meritocracy free that induces the mobility of merit needed to renew societies continually.
Today we, and the rest of the world, are held hostage by stale monisms of freedom, quite the opposite of free, that in their quest for totalitarian absolutism are incompatible with the dynamic ingenuity and capacity of humanity.
I must add that inequality (of any kind) cannot and should not be avoided, for evolution relies on the value of our differences, not on the regurgitation of our commonalities. However, such inequality should be established based on evolutionary merit, not be based on a Stone Age manmade system with a frozen indulgence of oligarchic merit.
And on that note, China and India have much more significant “warts” in finagled inequality and poverty. But we should never be content being the best of the worst. And we, the U.S. of A. owe it to ourselves and the rest of the world, who followed and bought into our dumb systems, to upgrade the guiding principles of said systems.
Exactly what I have been working on for the last eight years.
