Our society is being hacked by technology
What started as a race for attention is now eating away the foundation of our society and freedoms. Mental health, social relationships, creativity and cognitive freedom and liberty of contract might become something we lose in the process.
The biggest technology companies created amazing products and benefited the world enormously. But these same companies have the disease called Big Business Syndrom. Becoming overly bureaucratic and are in their own World War to grasp our attention which they need to make money. They force themselves to use illuster techniques to keep us glued behind our neon lights and annexe every possible thought to outpace the competition. They bombard us with A.I. driven news feeds, content and notifications where they continually become closer invading our private space learning our innermost secrets to keep stealing our time.
When people fear surveillance, whether it exists or not, they grow afraid to speak their minds and hearts freely to their government or to anyone else.
SAM ERVIN, US SENATOR, 1896 - 1985
Unfortunately, what is best for our attention is not necessarily the best for our health. Where these products get branded as neutral, they are not and are part of a system to keep us addicted.
With more than 2 billion people, addicted to these machines, technology corporations accidentally created a channel to manipulate our society in such a precision. Past war generals would be jealous.
Why is the problem so urgent!
DemocracySocial media rewards extreme behaviour, false truths and creates filter bubbles that are meant to keep eating from your attention. It divides naturally making it, so we no longer agree on anything let alone our norms and values.
Sociale relationsThe race for attention makes social media want that we keep living in virtual interactions and accept virtual rewards (likes, shares, harts) managed and monetised by these platforms themselves instead of face to face interaction.
ChilderenThe fight for attention from children trains them to give up self-esteem and replace this by likes, encourages comparison with others and creates the illusion that they constant missed something important.
Mental HealthThe techniques that are used to keep us addicted 24 hours a day make it harder to create distance, enhance stress, fear and reduce sleep.
Freedom of ContractThe fear of missing out the next innovation cycle disrupts the basic necessities for freedom and the ability to create personal terms and conditions that also work for the more slow thinkers making freedom a cry from a distant past.
Economic BabaloniëSocial media earns on the social time from anyone, and there is no economic equivalent for this data dividend to be recognised and understood making it hard for reciprocal relationships and epic impact to occur.
Numbers that intrinsically are connected
Millenials / Gen Z
More depth then babyboomers and Gen X
lives in poverty
Millenial / Gen Z
years until pension
more suicides under millennials
The intelligence of which is not human is increasing, and eventually, we represent a very small percentage.
I tried to convince people to slow down AI. To regulate A.I. This was futile, I tried for years. There will be an outcry. Our time frame means nothing to A.I.
Other aspects that correlate with the problems.
Ignoring problems have the tendency to make a problem bigger.
Are we breaking our brains with digital tools.
Are ideas viruses you can program
Who are the dictators of the future, is government necessary.
Technology & Aliens
What if we created the Aliens ourselves because we do not understand the feedbackloop.
Have we become the fuel and is spying something useful. Have we become the fuel and is spying something useful.
Toxic Social Media
Social networks do not offer indepency but operate like the black plague.
Leaders are asked to become more aggressive in creating a positive change.
Millenial Survey 2018
Executive summary Following a troubling year, where geopolitical and social concerns gave rise to a new wave of business activism, millennials and Gen Z are sounding the alarm, according to Deloitte’s seventh annual Millennial Survey. Millennials’ opinions about business’ motivations and ethics, which had trended up the past two years, retreated dramatically this year, as did their sense of loyalty. And neither generation is particularly optimistic about their readiness for Industry 4.0. Their concerns suggest this is an ideal time for business leaders to prove themselves as agents of positive change.
HOW TO CONTINUE
The problem is big and correlates on identity, economy and freedom in a new astronomical way. The system is not prepared for prosumers, people that want to partake autonomously and emancipate from data slavery, equality in relationships and equal opportunity. We have to radicalise and create tools for thinking but also innovate our market presumptions to give people a voice of freedom and cherish cultural diversity rather than system standardisation.
