I have thought for a long time that things were going to get better with time. Probably because I heard so many people promising a better future because of the new technologies. Despite the technological progress, yet I see the public health care system deteriorating and the number of homeless people increasing in the streets. The debt of several countries is constantly increasing. The politicians make a lot of promises, but I have the impression that nothing moves. If we project into the future with the ongoing trend since several years, we quickly realize that the problems will get worse. Despite the best intentions and all the technology of our modern world, societies do not seem quite solid and structured to face the world of tomorrow. The planet lives a situation that has never occurred. The number of humans on Earth is greater than ever. Mineral resources are collapsing with forecasts of 10 to 30 years for non-renewable resources more in demand than ever. Never the impact on the planet of every human being has been greater than today. There is no solution to solve the overpopulation problem. Are you really able to imagine the world in 20 or 40 years?
After several years of reflection on the society, I have come to believe that there is a lack a real investment in the social aspect. We have invested huge sums in technology, but this does not help people to live way out of poverty or simply be happier. Only a part of the answers is in the technology. The rest lies in the way we structure our society and the values we teach. Fortunately, many people seem interested in the social aspect. For example, we can see a movement to put in place sustainable development, fair trade and organic agriculture.
Over the years, my ideas have accumulated and I had to find a way to make them accessible. The blog seemed the best way to share them and also having a social commitment.
