MOVING FORWARD: Part 20 - In Conclusion

We live in a world of global inequity.

Broken markets founded on corrupt economic models operating within malfunctioning social and political systems represent capitalism’s greatest failing.

Where it was once believed that democracy would enable effective self-governance and, by extension, that the free market would self-regulate, we now know better.

Better informed, empowered and enabled than at any other time in history, we have become enslaved by an economic model that inspires hope for self-determination while failing to provide the mechanisms necessary for its realization.

Our notions of success have been hijacked by an economic model that knows only one way to value it. We have become entrenched in a way of living that rewards us for maximizing revenue instead of by creating value.

The ubiquity of communications infrastructure has emerged in response to our ever-increasing demand for connection and has achieved unparalleled growth as development costs have diminished. Now more than six billion people are capable of establishing direct communication with each other.

The social web, by extension, connects billions of people via trillions of transactions a day. The world’s largest social networks generate revenue by enabling user-generated content and then serving advertising back to those users. In short, they trade the novelty and utility of their services for the opportunity to commercialize our time, data and connections. Along the way they generate high volume revenues and correspondingly high-profit that the law requires they disperse to their shareholders.

So while the tools of the social web are undeniably impactful in terms of facilitating communication, they have done little to truly revolutionize the plight of the every man and woman. It is difficult to be motivated to create meaningful change in one’s own life when the mechanisms for achieving self-determination are frequently beyond reach or comprehension.


Now imagine a social network where the members are rewarded for their interactions, where they share in the distribution of earnings, are encouraged to gift to their favorite causes and ultimately determine the strategic direction of the company in order to guide and support it in doing even more of the same.

Imagine a world uplifted.

That's why I'm very grateful that I was able to meet and join Fanbox. This site is one of a kind and I can't find any other better than this. I'm hoping that the next president will be more responsible and passionate in fulfilling the mission of Fanbox and that is To uplift humanity by enabling opportunities.

As a Success Coach, Gerald, you should consider running for President!

The only requirement is that Success Coaches need to have been an SC for 90 days, to ensure that they are familiar with the ideas, opportunities and concerns of community members.

Hahaha, LOL :)) Carmz, you're keen in reading comments, hahaha... Yeah, but given the fact that an SC should have completed 90 days or more, that disqualifies me since I'm still on a probationary period, hhahaha. You are more qualified Carmz, why not try? hehe
