I’m not a socialist, marxist, capitalist, or any other boxed in human-bred term for a person society has found a way to push into our vernacular.
I don’t like being associated with any clique, niche, or political ideology, however, I’ve been occasionally referred to as having a liberal flavor in my perspective. However, here’s a quote from JFK I think of when people use the term “liberal"…
That being said, I, on one hand believe that the two party system and the political model we’ve had for so long will eventually whither away and become as obsolete as meteorologists soon will. Capitalism and the monetary system itself are an impediment to forward progress. The sooner we evolve from this, the better, and the freer we will be. On the other hand, if we are to have any select cabinet of people making decisions which effect the inhabitants of this planet (that includes non-human organisms), undoubtedly I firmly believe they should be experts in their field, scientists, permitted to utilize the latest technology wherever and whenever applicable to solve problems, ride the wave of exponential growth bolstered by Moore’s Law, subsequently unchaining scientific research and exploration from the traditions of old which many of become addicted and indoctrinated into.
Politics and government get in the way (in terms of how they are running right now, and by whom). We of course need organizations we all can be a part of, but as a conduit toward constant innovation. Within the stale system we are still perpetuating, innovation is stagnant, scientific research is suffocating, and inspiration is throttled due in part to willful ignorance and corrupt politics, all circling the drain of a monetary system that says “this paper money can’t be fed into this machine to make it work, but we’ll convince you it does," then, after the near suffocation of funds or grants or budget cuts, etc., you find out where the money actually went and shake your head, asking, "who the hell is running this show?" It’s a farce. And we can do better than this, so much better.
I’m a human being first. So, if I’m to be affiliated with any sort of “ism" or "ist" it would be Humanism as a Humanist. But I’m a human being, an Earthling, etc., I’m a naturally born scientist via my evolutionary lineage. I didn’t choose to be born into this society at this time, during this era, it just happened. I would have much rather been born during a time where I would have read about this era of time as “what a civilization should not do" as we are moving outward into the cosmos.
I recommend watching this prophetic and very relevant interview/exchange between Carl Sagan and Charlie Rose, for more clarity on how we should be conducting ourselves as a collective society. Also recommended, this compilation video portraying the legacy of Carl Sagan which speaks to us today, and to generations forward.
