Machines better than humans?

In a ruthless world like ours would machines do a better job then us? The technology for gathering data and analyzed it is really becoming cutting edge. We can now measure our behaviors and most of human activities.Given us the opportunity to better differentiate between perception and facts while giving us a more accurate sense of our progress and what works and what does not. Machines are becoming more and more sophisticated, we are becoming more and more barbaric. So would machines do a better a job of managing this planet? I am confused and contemplating. But there is no doubt that machines are and will be a very important part of our future and the New global paradigm-W3.0

Global leaders in the dark

The global leadership is flying blind. They are pretending like they know. That is the global truth. What do we do? we go along pretending like we believe that they know what they are doing. It makes us feel safe giving them the keys to the globe and to our destines.It also covers up our lack of responsibility and our entertained passivity while the place goes down in flames. All that said I must give credit to those leaders that are taking us toward the black hole of destruction at least they are taking responsibility to lead. The big question is where are w?Please pass me the remote control-good night-W3

Is democracy over?

It seems like the world is being run by a series of small groups with very specific interest. As we look around this dynamic seems to playing in China, Latin America, Russia, the Arab countries, etc. But the real question is what is going on here in the United States? is our decline due to deterioration of our democracy? Is this country becoming like Russia, Latin America but done in a more sophisticated and masterful manner. Its seems that the US political system congress has become very parochial and subservient to interest groups. We are focusing only on the short term, about two years right on time for the election. The United States is slowly collapsing before our eyes. We need to have the vision and fortitude to create a shift paradigm in important areas like alternative energies, health(wellness/preventive/stop the junk food eating-obesity), living within our means(reduce our debt-stop taking easy and cheap chinese money), really focus on creativity and innovation through a different education and how about reforming our campaign laws so money is not the only factor determining the results-come on are we going to let the boat sink that easy?

Make the planet a nourishing and loving place to live. The heart is the real source of our actions and ideas. Let's really make quality of life and human nourishment the priority.

Respect nature. We are nature; it is our duty to respect, protect and learn from nature rather than conquer her.

The Inner Journey. The real revolution is our inner growth. As long as we do not reinvent our inner landscape, our outer reality will continue to be limited, stale and violent.

Live a holistic lifestyle. The mind, the heart, the spirit and the body are one interrelated organism.

Business to transform the world. Business is a very powerful force that must be used to transform the earth. Compassion, entrepreneurship, innovation and the Spirit are the core elements of this transformation. Business based on innovative chaos, taking risk, intuition, heart, synthesis, non-linear skills, a holistic approach, conservation, quality, cooperation and partnership are the focal points of a new business paradigm.

Use technology to unite people. Let's create technologies that bring us together and help us develop lives of greater quality. The Internet is a manifestation of our desire to be connected. We aspire to connect to each other and become whole.

The Media. Media must inform, uplift, educate, inspire and unite. Not manipulate, instill fear, and keep people from developing their inner greatness.

Individual versus the collective. The individual must become responsible for his or her well-being, inner journey and self-improvement. The government cannot do it. Let's empower our selves, hearts, and thoughts.

Government small and non-intrusive. The government is simply a traffic cop. The responsible individual is the engine of growth, order and prosperity.

High self-esteem is the most effective weapon against corruption. As human beings we must understand that we are all capable of creating the life we want. We do not have to take from others. The universe is an abundant system. Scarcity is an illusion.

We are what we eat/eating is a political act. If we eat junk, we become junk, we think junky ideas and we end up creating a world of junk. Let's eat quality food and become quality people.

Quality of life over superficial growth. Our economic growth must be based on the growth of the human spirit and the improvement of our lives. We need to change the measurement of our economic life and the meaning of the word "profits." Profits must include quality of life, personal growth and enjoyment.

Learning is a human right. Teaching people is a global duty; not having education available is a violation of human rights.

Role models are extraordinary people. We must admire real people that have created extraordinary lives, not people created by the media. Role models are essential for the development of our human potential.

Abundance and prosperity. The universe is abundant. We are abundant and limitless. We need to turn our minds and hearts toward our greatness, abundance and possibilities.

Consumption vs. quality of life. We cannot fill our emptiness by consuming. Consumption must have meaning and its consequences measured. We need nourishment, creativity, encouragement, playfulness and community - not more consumption.

Individual creativity, imagination and self-expression are sacred. Individual creativity must be respected, encouraged and protected. It is the only way out of our current broken paradigm.
