A country is a manmade delineation of sovereignty, allowing said sovereignty to define and control the human theory, guiding systems, preemptive rules, and trustworthy enforcement for the practices of policy, capital, and innovation to abide by and advance the collective interests of its people.
Relying on the frozen scripture of a two-hundred-year-old constitution, today’s laissez-faire implementation of American sovereignty causes forty thousand (yes 40,000!) people to die every month of a cause worse than coronavirus.
Obesity causes a death rate of eight 9/11s every month, for which no doctor Fauci is available to jab new life into human adaptability. Many other startling statistics suggest the downstream evolution of “American excellence” is not what the world should be copying.
The absence of a human theory that determines what can be discovered, in the words of Albert Einstein, causes our systems to falter, our rules to be circumvented, and our enforcement to be nullified, with the significant influencers of policy, capital, and innovation deploying narrow-minded and self-serving vile-maxims, damaging the collective interests of humanity.
No amount of wealth will make up for the lack of a sensible human theory that induces widespread apathy, making people check out mentally and physically. Valuations without evolutionary value are spinning out of control, trapping the greater fools of society in self-fulfilling prophecies. Health insurance premiums are out of control. Seventy percent of Americans are chronically dependent on prescription drugs, turning them evolutionary walking dead.
More than fifty percent of Americans do not have more than $500 in the bank, incapable of dealing with any curveballs life throws their way. Americans live paycheck to paycheck, tied to jobs that do not leave room for personal development or empathy. Many Americans have lost their soul in the process of chasing an evolutionary dead-end street dream, to begin with.
Biden’s build-back-better plan is a temporal bandaid to decades of evolutionary ignorance humanity has deployed. We cannot improve humanity by throwing more money at what we have -and still continue- to do wrong.
In 1995, driving the concrete-block 101 freeway from San Francisco Airport to Palo Alto full of potholes and lined with dilapidated businesses reminded me of a third-world country. Biden’s plan may patch up some of the proverbial potholes in society, but it will not solve the unsuitable theory our roads are made of.
America’s reinvention comes from a higher normalization of nature’s truth. The normalization that human excellence and the longevity of human existence is directly related to how we abide by nature’s first-principles systemically.
A President who relies on Congress to write groundbreaking law purporting to build a new America does not understand that rules are mere consequences of a theory at its cause. And without a better theory for humanity, more laws simply yield more convulsions from rebels without a cause. The grandiose depravity of reason Nietzsche wrote about one hundred years ago.
To rebuild America and set a better example for the world, we must deploy new rigors of excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves.
As we lay out in our masterclass, we must -for the first time- define a theory for humanity in tune with nature’s first-principles embedded in the operating systems of policy, capital, and innovation. Then, and only then, do we deploy rules and enforcement to build trust in the predictability of outcomes we wish to see.
The quality and longevity of the lifespan of the human species depend on our adaptability to nature’s entropy embedded in everything we do.
- Step 1 is to define and implement a human theory -for the first time- abiding by nature’s first-principles.
- Step 2 is to realign the hierarchy of practices to systemically improve the execution of the theory.
- Step 3 is to implement the method by which theory, systems, rules, and enforcements (in that order) improve human adaptability to nature’s entropy.
Break The Norm
The answer to improving human excellence lies upstream, not in more of the same downstream. Now is the time for people who run countries to show what they are made of. Real leaders understand that leadership that breaks the norm comes from a new normalization of truth. Not from yet another suboptimization of an existing truth resold as new to the greater-fools of humanity.
We must change the operating systems of humanity from manifests of solipsistic self-indulgence to systemically produce what nature has already defined as our evolutionary needs. The need to adapt to every form of entropy nature throws our way.
