Triple D's To Die For
Alstry's blogging is going to take on a more positive perspective focusing in part on what will be ahead of us.
Right now there are three themes, any one of which is incredibly convulsive to our current lifestyles...taken together, we are in the process of a revolutionary change and leap forward which will propel humanity into an existence only dreamed about in novels and movies.
The three themes are Deleveraging, Deindustrialization, and Digitization.
The first two are creatively destructive, and the third will move man forward further than any prior process in history.
Remember, it was not too long ago, it took 30 men to farm 1200 acres of land. Today, one can handle it easily. The fact that over 95% of the farmers were displaced from their livlihood did not stop the progress of humanity, in fact, industrialization arguably improved man's quality of life.
The change from Industrialization to Digitization will be even more radical, convulsive and exciting than the change from agriculture to industrialization.
As many of you may Fools may summize, few in America or the world for that matter, have spent as much time or resources as Alstry focusing on this issue of transforming the world into a digital existance.
The impact will be far wider and more intrusive than many of you can imagine. The way health care is delivered, the reduced need for real estate and people in current paradigms, the creative destruction of most of what we view as "normal" today, the types of structures and communities we live in......everything will be impacted.
You think farmers in the agricultural age could imagine the life we are living today???
My blogging will be divided into three parts....two of which will be perceived as negative due to Deindustrialization and Deleveraging.....the thrid will be much more optimistic as we center on Digitization.
Hang on, it will be a ride few are mentally ready for.......
