Will meritocracy save the post-pandemic world?
The reality of human endurance: Protecting self-incompetence is a condition of the human heart because our own self-discovery by our own mind only exposes us to our own fragility and limits on our already acquired skills. Despite such skills, still surrounded by additional hidden talents untapped, but when passages of excruciating pain necessitated transformative progress, the heart pulls the curtain on such adventures out of fear.
The most important sometimes, self-discovery alerts us to a dormant self-destructing beast living in stagnation within us. Going forward and seeking out any new thought, skill, or enlightenment is always an odyssey for the mind, seeking wisdom is fighting monsters, like a warrior on a daring adventure of courage on a lonely journey . Be a warrior and discover your own universe of hidden talents. Meritocracy awaits you …
Most of the world’s economies already visibly damaged, Covid-19, a new sheriff in town, a dealer’s choice game on the table; it takes an asset to bring meritocracy, performance, productivity and profitability or waste a lot of time. Select a few nations of your choice, observe their levels of executions and digitization, study their bureaucracies and determine their rate of resilience and if and how they will survive over the next five years. Now the real tough questions
Why cut the electricity of the building and climb the skyscraper by the stairs. After all, the gross neglect of most nations to overlook digitization and embrace near-free technologies is now visible as an unforgivable fault. Digitization, essential in the main economic poles, commercial groups, associations and all small and medium-sized enterprises across the country on integrated platforms. With the majority of nations locked in an old state of mind. They just can’t get to the top floor, exhausted and out of breath as they go up the stairs and are severely stuck on the lower floors.
Therefore, what’s wrong with the stubbornly bureaucratic mindset and why he refuses to show the world his diversity of talents and skills. Above all, why are such questions not part of daily national debates? Why are the layers of economic development leadership so timid, the business groups so scared, and the political leaders so confused about it?
The new realities: recovery from the pandemic will not take prisoners. Out of the cage, the constant mutation of our economic thinking has now metamorphosed into an ugly monster. The alarm bells are ringing. The world has changed on economic behaviorism every millennia and this period is no different. Eventually, the modern intelligentsia of the world, in search of the common good, will once again go through the eye of the needle and arrive on the other side badly bruised and bruised but a little better. This is how humanity saved itself from total erasure. This is how the world’s people have learned to linger as the economic power shifts draw near to you.
The rise of meritocracy: Unless bureaucracies learn to leave behind their shattered pasts, embrace the future, digital platforms, global diversity and exportability, paper-based economies will only end up in wastebaskets. Meritocracy will eat bureaucracy for lunch. There is no other way. Soon it will be time for lunch.
Adjustments: quickly acquire mastery of these matters; rediscover constant learning, constant disruption and constant progress, the future needs a new world age mindset. Understanding the logic of micro-manufacturing and micro-exports is a key issue, digital platforms and the direction where trade is heading are landscapes. Unless Western economies rediscover manufacturing, associated with technology, platform economies, billions of dollars will roll back onto the old system.
A century ago, the industrial era forced the acquisition of the heaviest machines to progress, now there are no heavy investments, but free spirits on technologies and platforms available for free. Today, leveraging freely available technology requires little to no muscle power, but certainly requires higher mental powers. Knowing how to use critical thinking and declaring lifelong learning a normal requirement will help bridge progress. Intelligence today means identifying your hidden enemies; know what posts draw you to tribalism, hate and destruction, know what media is and what is wrong, what social media is or if political rhetoric is nothing more than a special agenda to divide and conquer. Don’t become divisible.
What a difference a century makes, in 1922, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was formed, Tutankhamun’s tomb was discovered, the BBC was formed and Gandhi was put in prison by the British. Our 2022 will unveil post-pandemic economic realities. With dozens of elections, cabinet reshuffles, recycling of promises and yard sales telehufflers, socio-economic mood swings will test the freedom to cry out the truth.
The global shift of powers is now defined. Colossal economic failures identified. World opinion is solidifying. Universal struggles are beginning to appear. Neither the super-taxing carriers of Pandora’s papers will save the savings nor the real surprises of Pandora’s Box, from hyperinflation to hyper-deflation, will save us. A candlelight tour of Beirut’s tragic landscapes speaks volumes as she sinks into the Dark Ages. Mobilizing entrepreneurship will save nations. Progress towards “meritocracy” are trends of personal development, therefore, a call of time, a new truth and a new reality. Change and change again, the statues are there to make the birds poop …
The rest is easy
