Open letter to the leaders
After reading the dear funders letter and this article : Global governance in an era of weak nation-states, i thought : what if we collaboratively write an open source letter based on the same model and spread it ?
The actual text is on a google doc, but it may be more relevant to build it on an open source and free platform.
The text is now onanother platform, feel free to add your thoughts, documentation…
There are tons of people waiting for a global change, and waiting on actual political system doesn’t seem to work. The last big G20 meeting proved it one more time, and we can’t wait a decade or two, sitting on our ass, waiting for them to change. It’s not possible. Humanity can’t affort it.
Things seem so hard to change because it’s the result of a many few who exploit the rules of the actual system. These rules have become so complicated and technical that an army of brilliant people are specialised about it. I don’t see how we can change these rules, alter, modernise or simplfy it at all. Just thinking about it makes my brain bowl of desperation.
So, there are a few people exploiting and salvaging the system. A few who have to make crucial decisions now.
What if we ask them politely to stop compete to each others and humbly explain them how cooperation can give much more profit than competition ?
There are many brilliant people in this community to provide arguments and proofs they can’t ignore.
There are many influent persons around the world working for a change who could help spread it.
A message of the many, a beg to stop this madness and start working together.
No one has to lose anything.
We just need more cooperation and more compassion to survive.
Because it’s about Humanity survival.
You can’t play a game if you have destroyed the game.
Leaders should continue playing the game.
Rules have changed and new challenges are coming.
We need to inform them.
And thank them for their work.
Because they do realise a lot of things.
Maybe it can sound useless, maybe it’s already been done. If so, let me know, i’d like to contribute. It may sound crazy, naive or desperate, maybe it is.
But it’s worth the try.
It doesn’t cost of thing.
But if it touches a few leaders…
That’s the best it can do.
The worst : nothing.
It’s just not working out.
You are playing the rules, and by doing so, a lot of bad things will happen. You know what we are talking about. We are already observing the direct consequences of many aspects of the global system. Our planet earth is in danger, and with it everyone of us. Everyone of you.
You know what works best for your company, your state, your tribe : good management, cooperation, shared ideas and knowledge…[probably other things] Think about humanity like it is your company, your state, your tribe. Because you are part of it.
You can now decide to stop playing the actual global game and start playing the real one. It will not cost you anything.
The only thing you have to do is to see your competitors, your enemies or whatever, like possible partners and communicate with them to see how you could work together.
Here is what happens because you don’t work altogether but fight do be the best :
The huge number of laboratories and companies and the way they compete is pretty cruel. You are playing with people’s lifes by keeping your secrets and not working altogether. You don’t need to be the first.
[some more arguments and proofs would be welcome]
You spend a lot of money on war, weapons, military research…
You spend this money to protect the past : your holdings, your territory, your people.
Please use some more for the future : education, scientific searches…
You control everything. Our needs, our lifes. Your impact is so powerful it has deeply changed the face of the earth, but also ourselves. You made us more efficient than ever. You gave us tools, entertainment, passions…
We need your help. Not a little part of it, you all do some sponsorship, patronage and show from time time good willing.
We need you to help good things happen. You are good at it.
You need challenges, we can give you real challenges.
Not the little wars you’re fighting to be the best.
You already are.
Allow humanity to be the best.
You only can do that, and we will thank you more than you can imagine.
[not sure signing it is relevant, it could at least give more strength to the message. Also there are many other things that could be argued and discussed, and probably some vidéos or articles could help it.]
