Some 100 new elections are scheduled over the next 500 days across the globe.
A new global shift on opinion is emerging. Just ask people on any street of the world: Is futurism workless? Is most political focalism obsolete? Is war a next solution? Alternatively, is common good a real possibility? Identical reactions are now a mammoth change creating the largest ever-assembled common mindshare. Surprisingly the commonality of the problems has finally awakened the global populace to submerge in common causes, seeking common good. Unlike before, this is massive, focused and well connected across the world. After all, we only created, artificially divided world, fragmented into tribal fractions while all the sufferings remain common. The dark side of Covid sheds additional light; we all bleed the same blood; we all die in the end and take with us nothing.
Will this global connectivity of mind share challenge the upcoming 100 new elections, scheduled over the next 500 days? Why, without global-age compatible citizenry and highly upskilled digitized economic platforms, nations are simply doomed. What will turn around our multi-layered national leadership to find multi-layered root cause solutions? A century ago, knowing how to use a pencil sharpener, stapler or a filing cabinet got us a job, today with 100+ miscellaneous, business or technology related items, little or nothing considered as big value-added gainers. Nevertheless, Covidians, the survivors of the covid-19 cruelties now like regimented disciples all lining up at the gates. There never ever was such a universal gateway to a common frontier or such massive assembly of the largest mindshare ever in human history. Political punditry must reinvent before washed out in sudden shifts.
Visible outcomes: The fact, global workforces crushed against their own creations of automations, only shows poor planning; a critical lack of advancements on occupationalism. Traditional races of humankind performance against their own technology performance now declared useless. Example, to design, invent and produce a car is one thing; racing with that contraption is just silly. Like a human body is neither a bulldozer, nor a computer. However, the mind can move mountains and land on the moon. Whatever we invent to replace ourselves must also allow us to enter into a new and additional rewarding occupationalism. Not make us simply redundant.
Human mind must advance as a mind, but not as a faster machine to compete with technology. Economies must advance based on acknowledgement of our ‘economic behavior’ shifts and adjust accordingly with ethical solutions to find high value activities to ‘continuously’ create local grassroots prosperity. Plant-shutdowns should not be the town-shutdowns. Most nations grossly distracted in illusionary fireworks abandoned the art of national optimization of hidden talents and ignored their own nation building.
Across the world, damaged economies are visible. Lack of pragmatic support to small medium businesses, micro-mega exports, mini-micro-manufacturing, upskilling, and reskilling of national citizenry are all clear measurements pointing as national failures. Unlimited rainfall of money will not save us, but the respectable national occupationalism will. Smart leadership must develop smart economies to create the real ‘need’ of the human mind and not just jobs, later rejected only as obsolete against robotization.

Bold nations need smart play; national debates and discussions on common sense ideas to create local grassroots prosperity and national mobilization of hidden talents of the citizenry to stand up to the global standard of competitive productivity of national goods and services.
Emergency meetings required; before relief funding expires, get ready with the fastest methodologies to create national occupationalism, at any costs, or prepare for fast waves of populism surrounded by already outdated broken systems.
The darkness of the future is only darkness fertilized in our own minds, as only a brighter future awaits.
The rest is easy
