Donald Trump is not the problem – he’s the symptom | openDemocracy

Trump is what happens when you fail to understand our global problems in their interconnected, systemic context.

This, in a nutshell is the analysis brillantly made in this article.

I think it should be read. It  goes beyond what is currently being written, and that frustrates me so much.

The new science, hard and soft, together with the emergent process and practical philosophy, complex systemic thinking, offers “systems intelligent” (Saarinen and Hamalaïnen) new ways of  perceiving and thinking.

Everything looks different  in a process-oriented view emphasizing evolving systems as an integral part of evolution. Here ethics not subject to revelation; it rather is experienced directly by way of the dynamics of self-organizing and creative processes (I paraphraze here the ideas of Erich Jantsch, as set forth in Charper 16, page 263, of  his groundbreaking 1980 book: “The Self Organizing Universe”

It is deeply conforting to read this article. I recommend it to all people of good will who are trying to make sense of our fast evolving world, that some are qualifying as rthe “Third Disruption” (Otto Scharmer)

Rest us now to transform thinking in acting: It is whar we try to achieve in the ZERI and the Blue Economy Networks.

About charlesvanderhaegen

I am a grandfather of an immensely inspiring family, thanks to the most incredible wife. To satisfy my family's needs, I was for 30 years business entrepreneur, roller coasting between success and failure. 17 years ago I was forced to stop and reflect. I dug into theory and discovered the World out there, that my involvement in Business had kept hidden to me. I feared that I will not escape remaining amidst my trans-disciplinary quest forever, bouncing back and forth from action to theory, always puzzled by Europe's apparent incapacity to free itself from its Institutional/Technological Lock-ins. My horizon opened up when Gunter Pauly, my intimate friend of 35 years, asked me to join him and take charge ZERI's development in Europe. I am now fully engaged alongside Gunter Pauli in the http://www.zeri.org and the @myblueeconomy Networks as CEO of ZERI.EU vzw (Non for Profit association)
