(a-utopian) My fellow crypto-aires and crypto-enthusiasts, the time has come for a beautiful new world to be made manifest out of the crumbling old political, financial and social structures we see around us.

We now have within our grasp and our view, a world where all people are provided the basic necessities of life: living, structured & crystalline water, clean and uncontaminated food, shelter, clothing, true freedom, social support, interaction and love. We not only already have the means to provide these basic necessities to all people, we have the means to go beyond mere survival and can provide a very high standard of living to all people.
Unfortunately though, the current political, financial and social systems we have in place hinder us from utilizing and implementing the full scope of our scientific and technological capabilities. In a positive and life-supporting way, we can use certain technologies to help liberate the world from the drudgery the current system keeps most people entrapped in.
This system is replaceable though. For the issue of political corruption, the blockchain solves. For financial corruption, the blockchain solves. Open source technologies and methods are the way forward. They are opening doors for us to create a world of abundance for all.
The blockchain and existing and emerging technologies will deliver the end-game blow to these old, outdated and corrupt systems of our world.
For our crypto movement to truly be successful, we must ensure these technologies converge to help all of life on this planet. Our crypto movement cannot be about “financial gains” for a few, or even a large percent of “investors.”
Our friend and peer, Vitalik Buterin, had this to say on the topic:
“ *All* crypto communities, ethereum included, should heed these words of warning. Need to differentiate between getting hundreds of billions of dollars of digital paper wealth sloshing around and actually achieving something meaningful for society.”
Or as the great architect and humanitarian Buckminster Fuller once stated:
“It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a mater of converting the high technology from weaponry to livingry.”
The major financial and political systems we have in place in our world today, so long as they are based on the illusions of debt, scarcity, greed and control over others, will continue to move towards their inevitable demise. Generating new financial, political and social systems that are based on respect of all of life, abundance, transparency and accountability must be the highest aim of our crpyto movement.
Architect, engineer, futurist and humanitarian, Jacque Fresco, who founded The Venus Project, had this to say of existing and emerging technologies:
As our quantum physicist friends have told us for nearly 100 years, and our original ancestors have shared from the beginning of recorded time, our thoughts create our reality. Let us focus on visualizing and then taking physical action to create a world that supports and protects all of life.
In fact, in Taipei, Taiwan the “Tao Zhu Yin Yuan” structure is being built, based on Vincent Callebaut’s double-helix design and is nearing completion.
Let us also remind ourselves of an eternal truth, should we not have the strength to believe such a world is possible:
“If a universe can be imagined, it exists.” — Professor MR Franks, Member, Royal Astronomical Society of Canada
