The world is going through significant change, and it is important for all of us to adapt and help our social institutions to adapt as well. This includes government, at all levels including local, specialized, states and federal, corporations, non-profits, clubs, religions and more. The relationship that people have with property and other capital and productivity is rapidly changing. Automation and artificial intelligence is actually taking over historically human roles. Cultural activities including religion are becoming more important.
People need to have access to ownership as well as jobs. Equal status opportunity is becoming even more important. As we transition to a more capital intensive society, citizens will need better safety nets for housing, health care, transportation, education and other essentials than we have known in the past. Freedom is becoming a more complex issue, but even more important to assure to everyone than ever.
It is more important now more than ever to reduce behavioral problems from corruption, financial attacks and other abusive acts. People with the means to look forward will be able to weather personal storms much more readily. Problems can be solved more gently, carefully. Corrections can become much more humane.

I have been observing and participating in democratic processes in the United States of America. The leaders appear to be working hard, and they are sincere in their attempts to improve government and our society. As we go through these revolutionary times, whether slowly or more quickly, it is good to know that we have at least some empathetic participants to counter the sloths of current wealth.
May we all become wealthy in a holistic way.
