A Storyteller's Personal Manifesto for Our Times (evolving)
A Single Vision that Implores a Multifold Vision:
Unsolved Riddles and All
the Prosperity necessary to it
the Society necessary to it
the Culture necessary to it
the Environment necessary to it
the Democracy necessary to it
the Government necessary to it
the Security necessary to it
the Education necessary to it
the Understandings necessary to it
in particular of
Pluralism :: Complexity (Muddle) :: Overview :: Both-And
and the consequent need to cultivate
Knowledge + Imagination + Compassion + Humour
(the Stephen Leacock Tetrad)
A Tetrad of Post-Covid19 Specific Measures
based on lessons learned
(1) A Guaranteed Annual Income. If we had had that from the beginning the social safety net it would represent would kick in automatically for those in need.This measure would require higher taxation of the progressive redistributive kind.
(2) Massive Reform of Elder Care. Towards Home Care and minimally institutional forms of residence; away from large institutions especially those of the warehousing kind.
(3) Sophisticated Understanding of Risk. Covid19 is a new risk and we don't know how to think about it. We take risks all the time in our daily lives, especially with disease and accidents, and we know how to think about them. We need to apply the same kind of understanding.
(4) Journalism for Our Time. The present whip-saw oscillation between sensationalism and sentimentalism, along with grotesquely inadequate expertise in statistical interpretation on the part of journalists, is making any kind of contextual thinking extremely difficult for those who rely on regular journalism for understanding.
