The Coming Insurrection and how it may Transform Expected Futures.

Jaap van Till, TheConnectivist

Times are a-changing. That means that we also have to change our views on the future to what might lead us in a constructive way through the major structural transitions. We can see that many national elections and referenda are signals of protest against the establishment powers. These have failed to see that many seemingly solid assumptions and policies are either false or do not work anymore: abundant raw materials, scarcity of information, hierarchies, upward movement in lower/ middle classes, neoliberal market mantras. The resulting ANGER and Insurrections have been averted by the elites by blaming “others”. The resulting wave of hatred and even open racism is similar to the popular fascist movements in the 1930’s after the Crash. We are now in the same position: the First Uprising after the Crash of 2008. The only alternative to endless hate and destruction is to start a wave of constructive interconnection and online ICT collaboration I call Synthecracy which can create value, wealth and jobs for the young. This is the Second Uprising, starting now and driven bottom up by teams of diverse skillful and ICT aware multi-tribe members that solve problems together and co-create on local scales. Examples: the well connected members of the many Pirate Parties in metropoli and chains of metropoli like Corridoria. The objectives and values of this “second uprising” are the exact opposite *) of those of the Trumpists and their fellow fascist populist leaders gathering followers in other countries, explicit, or hidden by the establishments to regain control and order. and most probaly resulting in endless “cleansings” (putting people in camps) and transborder destruction.

*) exact opposite in a number of ways , some of which are shown here:

5. The second uprising demands a new mindset in which tribes & people are part of an ecology in Nature:


6. The IT and Communication Infrastructures will also change and transform:
