"I don't believe ... the answers to our current situation reside in a political solution..."

I have come to believe this as well. Indeed, in my understanding, politics are irrelevant, and obsolete. I should clarify that I do have a political point of view, and reckon everyone does, but that regardless of those views, matters beyond our individual preferences, beyond politics, are effecting changes in the way power is wielded.

Decentralization is ongoing. As technology advances it is becoming able to be deployed by individuals to an ever greater degree. Particularly AI is delivering the power of institutions to individuals, and AI moderates all other technologies in an alarming way. Excel, the software, is a form of AI that delivers the power of a team of accountants to it's users. One person, using Excel, can do analysis that only a few years ago would have required a fleet of analysts. Excel (I am using it as a symbol of similar AI tech) is continuing to improve, and as it does, and means of interfacing with AI, along with the power of computers, advances, a breaking point is being reached. This ability to analyze and calculate is becoming so technical that it is necessarily being simplified to the point that the interface is disappearing.

I set up my first network in 1987, before Windows existed, before DOS was even commonly available. As networks became more complex the use of the software became more difficult, and as more devices and interfacing mechanisms were introduced, controlling networks was increased in complexity. However the GUI changed that, and networks became very simple, relatively speaking, for the end users to work in. The commands necessary to send a file to Bob over the network were mostly automated, and Alice didn't need to know how to format and write the command lines that executed the transfer herself. She only needed to use a shorthand, and the GUI did the rest.

As the complete individual control of software was rendered obsolete, more of the inner workings of software became obscure and ineffable. Along with this came virii and malware, hiding in those dark corners of programs we didn't need to precisely control anymore. Today you need to know almost nothing about network topology to use a smartphone to text your mom, and the operating systems themselves are malware, sort of dualities magically undertaking to make your communications facile, yet eliminating your privacy and security by spying on you for the overlords profiting from your use of their products.

But networks continue to evolve, and evolutionary forces necessarily determine how they do. As Bob and Alice are harmed by overlords spying on them, they increasingly seek to secure their communications to protect themselves, and that institutional power that has marked production, being the source of harm, is becoming obsolete as a result. Mesh networks, encrypted communications, and open source hard and soft ware are becoming the cutting edge of technological advance as individuals seek to survive and prosper. To prosper they need to control the tech they use to prevent malice from being part of it, and decentralization across all fields is beginning to eliminate overlords that are the societal malware causing harm.

Looking forward and applying what we have observed, it seems likely that soon we will be printing our own phones, and choosing our software from open source free libraries, while creating the communications network as an ad hoc system where each of us is both a node and the means to pass communications to surrounding nodes, rendering institutional instrusion and parasitism obsolete. Clearly this is not the intention of those overlords who are the beneficiaries of institutional power, but the harm they cause individuals by parasitizing them is naturally avoided and defenses evolve against that harm necessarily. Since it is the vector of institutional power that is the source of that harm, it is institutional power and parasitism that is becoming obsolete as development advances. These forces operate at a sub-societal level. They are primal forces, not societal, or institutionally determined - not politics, and not impacted by politics.

Using decentralized communications secure from parasitism is necessary for communists and capitalists, overlords and serfs alike. Institutions are becoming obsolete, as technology advances individual means of production across every field of industry. Institutional power is necessarily centralized and parasitic, and these limits are surmounted by physics, something institutions and political power cannot either command or ban. This evolution is a natural force, waves smashing on a beach, that only allows barnacles to survive in certain zones, and nothing else.

If we want to use the beach, we simply are mindful of the surf. We don't prevent waves and tides, we wait for low tide to use the lower beach, and stay higher when the tide is high. Our political bent doesn't change that at all. Capitalists and Communists alike use the beach the same way. This limits the siting of harbors, and restricts our launching of boats off the beach to certain kinds of boats in particular ways, and to certain times.

Similarly, society rides on the waves of technological development, and as individual means of production, mesh networks, and open source free software continue to develop, the erosion of institutional power is as natural and inevitable as the erosion of the bedrock of the beach, and just as sand is produced by tide and storm, so is a society of individuals empowered to associate freely by technology. Our politics can only ride the landscape, and thus decentralization renders politics obsolete in the end, as institutional power to project force cannot compel obedience in a decentralized landscape.

Barnacles cannot live on the sand, but must stick to rocks. Only those societies possible to impose on the shifting sand of decentralized industrial power are potential going forward, and our political desires are immaterial to this. Further, as transportation advances, eventually space travel will become available to individuals at their sole option. In the infinite universe, no collectivism imposed by overlords is possible.

We will be free, and the stars like sand in our toes.

Hey my friend,

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a brilliant reply and apologies for the delay in getting back to you, but I haven't had five minutes to myself. Yes I do very much agree with your perspective, I envisage it as a race to a dystopian or utopian finish line .. equally the tighter they try to hold onto power the more they become the driving force behind our creativity and ingenuity. I know that within our grasp we hold the keys to a very bright future, my perspective is that to achieve our full potential is going to require as much inner work as out is in the outer design and implementation. In essence a paradigm shift in how we view the world, each other, our definitions of success and certainly our manipulated and inverted perceptions of power.

Although I feel we're profoundly interconnected with one another, I don't really get into the whole "we are one" perspective as (through studying youth social trends) I feel the concept has the potential to become weaponised and nudge us towards the collectivisation of thought, action and behaviour. But a world of self-empowered individuals united in good intent and working towards the emancipation of humanity, well that is a dream whose first tentative steps will one day become mighty strides.

Like you highlight, decentralisation is absolutely key, in every sphere of society .. indeed (as I've recently written about) in terms of energy, it's a greenwashed centralised energy policy that is a key driver for the much of the environmental degradation we see unfolding around us, dam the rivers, build industrial size windfarms on precious landscapes, chop down vast swathes of ancient forest so we can burn it in our bio-refineries and call it green energy .. keep energy centralised and heavily subsidised. Or how about decentralising the whole industry and (quite literally) give power to the people?!

There is the tech for every house to more than meet it's energy needs, instead of handing away our tax money to fund industrial-scale energy projects .. give it back to us! Enshrine it into law that every new build must produce not only it's own energy needs but also allow us to trade the excess on the markets, or feed an emergency or industrial skeleton grid, or go towards social enterprises etc etc. This is just one example and like you allude to, decentralisation in every sphere of society is absolutely key to our freedom and survival. There is both the thirst and the ingenuity out there, alas it'd being strangled by a noose of redtape .. we need to break free of the perceptual prisons that have been assembled around us, become united in intent and not allow ourselves to continually divided by petty details and generationally alternating facts.

I know it doesn't always come across in my writing, but long term I am filled with optimism and hope for the future of our species .. I just feel that it's going to be difficult rights of passage before we realise our full potential. I'm trying to tread a fine line between informing people of the bigger picture, inspiring thought and questions, making them aware of the seriousness of our situation .. but not in such a way that they feel powerless to rise to this most important of occasions. That's the intent, the reader can decide the reality of that statement. :) Thanks again for the inspiring comment @valued-customer
