🌍 ecoTrain QOTW 100 STEEM IN PRIZES!!! "In what ways has centralisation failed us?"

in ecotrain •  last month  (edited)

centralisationQOTW.jpg

It's that time of the week again, and this week I present you with SUCH an important question! In recent months I have spoken on this topic with a few old friends whom live in the matrix, but i also consider to be quite open minded. Nevertheless, it has struck me and made me feel quite frustrated that they seem totally oblivious to the total mess that our centralised systems have put us in. Isn't it interesting that every political system we have today, whether it be capitalism or communism, is based on a totally centralised system.. and all are completely corrupt. Isn't it interesting how every political system on the planet is focused solely on power and money in an attempt to dominate the world at any cost? This is just one example of how centralisation has failed us, and by us I mean you and me, and ultimately everyone.

It isn't like me to focus on the negative, but sometimes its just necessary. This week I want us decentralisation pioneers to dig deep and share with the world just how centralisation has failed us. It is fair to say that you can look at almost any negative aspect of life in this world and see how it stems from the centralised way of doing things.. We can look at inequality, racism, war, poverty, mental health, child abuse, health, climate, corruption and underpinning them all is Centralisation! I am looking VERY forward to reading your responses on this QOTW, and from the tie-up post I will create something special! Perhaps a poster, or a video that we can share with the world to help them understand!

This week, to encourage you all, there are prizes! This topic is worth it! So today I am awarding 100 STEEM, to the best posts on this question! I will spread the 100 Steem out over a few people awarded on merit! Bonus points go to posts that include some facts and figures as well as your opinions and observations. It would be great to see some posts with real world examples as well! If you want to write a long list of things, or just focus on one thing that is totally up to you. As always, you make the rules around here in this decentralised anarcho world.

Decentralisation is what ecoVillage is all about! The reasons for embarking on the mission of creating an ecoVillage stretch so much further than just sustainable living, security and climate change. The ecoVillage concept hits on the one thing that is the real root of most of the worlds troubles.. but who wants to see change when they cannot even understand the problem? SO get your pens out, or your video cameras and let it rip folks!

This has got ideas flowing as I awaken more and more to the effects of centralized systems. Now to get them down into a post!
I'm sure I'll be learning lots and probably have my eyes opened more by other peoples responses!

here is mine, in at the last minute again, but it took me a while to decide how to answer this one and I could easily have written a book on it xxxx

I got a bit depressed while writing my response but then snapped out of it!

https://steempeak.com/@dmwh/response-to-ecotrain-qotw-in-what-ways-has-centralisation-failed-us

Great question and I intend to participate on this one, but you put me in a dilemma. I'm already researching and writing on how the healthcare industry was centralized and standardized in the early 1900s. It's criminal what the "progressives" did to us back then. So it would be easy to write an offshoot showing how the centralization of medicine in the US has failed us (not in every way, but certainly in astronomical costs).

But........ I can't really let your comment here stand: "Isn't it interesting that every political system we have today, whether it be capitalism or communism, is based on a totally centralised system.." Capitalism is not centralized. Corporatism... that's centralized. Capitalism, however, is an economic system based on capital. That's all it is. It depends largely on the market context in which capital is employed. In a free market, capitalism can exist (and does on smaller scales) as completely decentralized! So rather than writing on health centralization, maybe I should make this point more clear and let that be my entry. Or... maybe I can combine the two. Thinking aloud........

oh yay, im really happy you are taking part.. the numbers QUeen!
I hear what you say about capitalism... maybe there is a kind that isnt centralised but ive never seen it!?

how about you do focus on health, an also you can explain about capitalism and what centalised is as in intro?

look forward to the post!

Well, this one sort of followed its own path and wrote itself... here's what I ended up with:
