We live in a time were the predominance of the creative commons world and suffrage of culture is the best it has ever been. But, we live in a fragile world – that hangs in the balance of the populous and the elite. In many senses, the populous has done better than well and in many cases doesn’t even realize it yet. What will our future provide as the base culture of an open society?
Today I had the honor of hearing a lecture by Craig Hodgetts, FAIA of Hodgetts and Fung. It was a perspective of advancement and the ideas that form our society. It presented ideas of pop and classical understanding of an emergent society. Paired with an assortment of virtual reality presenters and entrepreneurs it encourages the push for understanding our roots and maintaining cultures that aren’t bastardized by pluralism. Rather, empowered by understanding and infused with class – to fight for a culture that accepts difference and preserves a proper sense of decency towards tradition and religion – items that preserve sanity in a world that could easily implode with cultural tensions.
This weekend, I was thinking about some fields of science and the pursuit of understanding. I hope that the world of government and science will stand to hold the human body as sacred. Christianity teaches and commonly believes that the body is a temple for the Holy Spirit – God indwelt in us, a belief that we invite Jesus Christ into our lives, minds and soul. As digital information systems become more prevalent, we will be better off in eternity if we don’t use embedded chips and technology, but rather use good communities and technology to protect the future. That is the best protection of the religious freedom we can get – keeping the body and mind clear so that we can be free to believe in a higher power. I hope that everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend.
Drop box but – it is what it is.
America. A prosperous place fueled by industry, once a mighty trade icon. The rest of the world is gaining strength and I see a weakness in the retail world due to massive amounts of import and online purchases. Strategically strengthening our retail through heavy import tax and heavy online shipping tax could greatly benefit us urbanly and economically. Convenience is truly costing retail too much and we haven’t see the effect yet, while it is wonderful to receive items at my place or in a drop box but it should not be the cheapest option. If retail is not protected through consumer purchases we will have vacant streets and that is not good for America.
