What can YOU (yeah you) do to change the world?

In a world where there's at least one person that disagrees with your point of view,  in systems that resist change, where corruption and self interest plague the majority, in a world with exponentially increasing population and decreasing natural resources, in a society that is rotting at its core, where morals variey by an individuals background, and individuals are becoming increasingly isolated, and conforming to a subpar standard, with all the information of the world at our fingertips, at the touch of a button.  What can we do as people? As individuals? As members of a global society? As saviours? And please God don't bring up Jesus.  But really.  What can YOU (yeah you) do to change the world?  To influence society?  To fix the system? To understand better? And why can't we do it now?  What's holding us up? You can say greed, and stubornness, and nationalism, and religious brainwashing, and you can call it purely animalistic.  But what is it about everything that holds us up? Why can't we escape the mundane and frivilous? Where and when is innocence lost? Is it our nature? What's missing?  What aren't we doing? And how can you (yeah you) change that?SAVE THE WORLD!

Douglas Rushkoff – It’s not the technology’s fault

It's up to us humans to re-humanize our world. An economy that prioritizes growth and profits over humanity has led to digital platforms that "strip the topsoil" of human behavior, whole industries, and the planet, giving less and less back. And only we can save us.
