Independence In The State of Mind

by Dan Robles on 07/04/2010

independence-dayIndependence is a state of mind.  Americans have always chosen independence – and they will continue to do so.  It is often convenient to let ourselves trust elected leaders and the esteemed business titans to do what is in our best interest.  Don’t be fooled, this is “trust”, not dependence.

It is likewise unwise to underestimate the independence movement – independence from corrupt currency, independence from fossil fuel, independence from corporate greed, independence from divisive politics, independence from endless war.   Just when everyone thinks that Americans are up against the ropes, they come up with an idea so radical, so creative, and so astonishingly consciousness-altering, the rest of the world just shakes their heads in collective disbelief.

That is where we are today.  Something extraordinary is about to happen in the way Americans organize themselves.  Nothing is sacred, no one is immune.  The next economic paradigm will alter the course of civilization.

All stages of human development were derived from the prior stage of human development by integrating the tools of that prior stage.  For example, the agrarians integrated the tools of the hunter-gather such as using the chopping rock to till a field for planting – and so forth.  Likewise, the industrial revolution integrated the tools of the scientific revolution; mathematics, chemistry, and engineering.  Earlier this century, the computer age integrated the tools of the industrial revolution, etc.

The next economic paradigm will be derived from the Knowledge economy by integrating the tools of the knowledge economy; these are The Internet, Social Media, mobile communications technology, etc…

Americans will chose Independence every time.
