I know better than to bet on the convulsions of human wants detached from human needs.
Without defining human needs as improving human adaptability to nature’s entropy, and every human development subjugated to that crucial agenda of human survival, the chase for the vile maxim of human wants offers the predictability of outcome similar to a horse race. The odds are stacked against you.
The definition of what is best is beholden to nature, not humanity, as nature’s first-principles lay down the law of our existence. I have developed a new operating-system for humanity based on those principles.
The horse race of best defined by man, measured against a leaderboard of meaningless economic metrics, will continue for a while until we realize human solipsism does not offer great pathways for renewal. As Winston Churchill said, The United States will always do the right thing eventually, but not until it has exhausted all avenues not to.
Thankfully, the pressure to do better and inspire the world with newfound excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves is mounting.
