Dissolving Neoliberalism, Managerialism and Elitism

Interviews with the Author Roy Madron.

This book proposes that our societies will have to become 'Super-Competent Democracies' in order to learn how to manage the immensely complex challenges and threats that we are facing.

The purpose of the book is to explain why and howSuper-Competent Democracies have to emerge so that our societies can become increasingly just and increasingly sustainable.

The world we live in and depend upon is immensely complex and so are the problems, the threats and the challenges that we face. Because they are complex, they cannot be solved with the lavish application of technological ingenuity and human resources as we can with 'simple' problems such as building a bridge or 'complicated' problems such as putting a man on the moon.

As David Snowden and Mary E.Boon said in A leader's framework for decision making, (Harvard Business Review: November 2000)

    • Complex problems involve large numbers of interacting elements
    • The interactions are nonlinear, and minor changes can produce disproportionately major consequences.
    • The system is dynamic, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and solutions cant be imposed; rather, they arise from the circumstances.
They emphasise that tackling complex problems requires "A deep understanding of context, the ability to embrace complexity and paradox, and a willingness to flexibly change leadership style." Indeed by treating complex problems as if they were simple or complicated leads to the emergence of disastrously chaotic outcomes, of which there are multitudes of florid examples at every level from the local to the global. By contrast, by applying ensembles of 'Super-Competencies' complex problems can be dissolved, as the great management cybernetician Stafford Beer says in 'Decision and Control'. (1966)

All of the 'Super-Competencies' we can use to dissolve the complex ecological, economic, social and political challenges and threats we are facing have been tried and tested and rigorously evaluated over the past fifty years or so.

However, while learning how to dissolve those problems, we will also have to dissolve three great ideological obstacles to their implementation: Neoliberalism, Managerialism and Elitism. The anti-human, anti-nature and anti-democratic systems that have been created by these three ideologies are herding the whole of the human family, and much of the natural world to the brink of chaos and extinction.

Why and how these ideologies combine to present a lethal danger to the future of the human family and the natural systems on which we depend is detailed in the first half of the book.

UPDATE FOR CONTEXT:

Roger Lewis7 April 2017 at 12:56 Syria is all about Gas, not poison Sarin Gas but Gas Pipelines. It is also not about Hydro Carbons in themselves but the market for hydrocarbons and which currency contracts of supply are settled in otherwise known  as,  US petrodollar hegemony.

Meet The Fuggers, Brexit, The Euro and Clueless Elites.

Meet the Fuggers or, its the Money Power stupid. Brexit, The Euro and clueless Elites.



The Eastern Roman empire under Justinian saw the seeds of its final fall to The Ottomans when Abd El Melik started paying tribute in Gold coinage under his own Political Branding you might say.

With all the talk of Brexit being the removal of a final obstacle to the deeper federation of a European State transcending tiresome nationalism, perhaps a little review of History, particularly Monetary history, might not be such a bad thing.

In the review of European competences carried out as a consultation by the foreign office regarding Brexit and or reform requirements of the Eu, two of the papers need to be considered in the context of the Money power argument.

The first paper considered is the Subsidiarity and proportionality aspects of the Lisbon treaty and the competences of the EU institutions vis National and regional democratic institutions. This is a trade-off between Centralised Efficiency and …

This Graph Explains the Importance of Turnout to the outcome of the Election Tomorrow.

If Turnout is the 72.2% of the Brexit Referendum last year you can see that the Light Blue line shows That the middle third of the probability distribution curve on Ashcroft's polling numbers has a Tory Majority of between 20 and 60 seats.
The 2015 turnout was 66.1 % overall. around the same as 1997 general election less than the 77% for the 92 vote. Historically the 1950 and 51 elections had over 80% turnouts.
