Our world has become so connected that a problem could quickly cascade from one form to another.
Take, for example, the pandemic that shut the world. Covid-19 did not know any border.
I remember how barter became a thing in my hometown because we were limited to travel, but we still wanted to feed our consumerist state.
The post-covid alternative scenarios and the deeper disease also reminded us how frail super-connected systems are in times of global collapse. And decentralization seems to be a pathway that we are heading to. It’s not even just about decentralization of finance and energy anymore. It’s also about the decentralization of governments.
And in light of another global crisis, here’s a beautiful quote by Jamais Cascio:
It’s harder to shatter something what’s already in pieces.IFTF Distinguished Fellow Jamais Cascio
