Pathfinding Our Destiny by Charles Hugh Smith

America teeters on the precipice: our government is now captive to special interests and big money, twin cancers that threaten our democracy. This accelerating crisis is exacerbated by a toxic social media-fueled tribalism that has replaced “what do you think?” with “which side are you on?” Our crisis isn’t just political – it’s structural: as the pace of change explodes from gradual to non-linear, the organizations that dominate our economy – centralized corporations and government – become destined to fail. We see this failure in both the soaring inequality that has hollowed out the American Dream as well as in the rising tide of social and political disunity. To prevent the fall of our democratic republic, we must transform our economy and society from the ground up.

For our political and financial elites will cling to their centralized power, doing more of what’s failed, even as civil society unravels. All is not lost – yet. Our way forward starts with understanding the fatal flaws of our brittle, self-serving status quo and embracing this basic truth: better options are available if we’re willing to explore.To pathfind our way to a better destiny, we must create new localized structures optimized for resilience and adaptability – a flexible, decentralized, sustainable, democratic, opportunity-for-all nation.
