What we formerly did only in real life is now being replicated online, 24/7/365. We were barely adept at actual social behavior when virtual interaction displaced it. Once again, the pioneers have launched out, beyond the current ‘edge’ of the known universe, with all humanity soon to follow, online. The question is, how humane is this ‘world’, and can we cooperate?
TODAY, my own experience is that each individual will strive to at least do what is best for them-selves. And that is not selfishness. TOMORROW, given a viable approach, they will also consider others in that decision so long as their own needs are equitably met in tandem.
However, for that to realistically occur online, the ‘new’ approach (and that envisioned here) must be co-managed by its participants, have a minimal set of convergent features, and that system must:
1- Endear and then acknowledge all stakeholder viewpoints
2- Identify current impacts and desired alternates
3- Uncover root cause by objective consensus
4- Enable corrective action by priority and through cooperation
That may seem complex, but it can be accomplished – and it’s already TOMORROW, somewhere!
What’s about YOU? – care to comment?
– dare to COOPERATE?
