    We are facing the Earth’s limits, complicating society, our health degradation, need for the global governance & decentralization. The health degradation includes social division, corruption, ochlocracy, or population explosion (“youth bulge"). Formerly, the problems may have been “solved” by selection in disaster, diseases, or war, but it is too risky, costly, even catastrophic now. I hope we can improve not only wealth production & distribution but also people’s ability and its utilization with new techs & policies.
