Unlearning Industrialization

I’m sure most people will agree that this is something we have to do – even though they have almost no knowledge of what Industrialization was. They just know it was something in the past, we are doing something else now – and we have to adjust according.

They should give more thought to this – what the past was like, and what kind of present we are moving into – but this kind of analysis is much more than they want to attempt.

They are workers – people developed by Industrialization to perform its simple tasks – and expressly forbidden to do anything else – such as considering why they were doing these things. They were to do, or die – and Industrial warfare littered the landscape with their bodies.

In today’s world – we haven’t come up with name for it yet – smarter people are needed – and people adapted to Industrialization – people taught to be stupid – are obsolete.

But these people are the most common people now, by far – and they object violently to being discarded. They want their world back – and they want it back now! They want jobs – when today’s world is providing fewer of them.

Here I refer you to Predictive Analytics: The Power to Predict Who Will Click, Buy, Lie, or Die, It says there are plenty of jobs available – making predictions. You don’t have to be a genius to do this – but you do have to have some smarts – and go through a fairly lengthy learning process.

Will the world’s unemployed be interested in this? No, they want simple jobs they can learn in half an hour – on the job! Such as my Grandfather Smith did, working for the Santa Fe Railroad – back in the Twenties.

That world, I don’t have to tell you – is far gone, and will never return.
