Global Chaos or Global Renaissance?

Global Chaos or Global Renaissance?

The High-Tech supertrend is stirring up unintended consequences that risk Global Chaos rather than Global Renaissance – however it is the general public that will make the difference

 

Exponentially growing High-Tech causes risky side-effects not only directly but also by stirring up five additional otherwise-benign global trends [See Analyses of global side-effects tab]

  • The combined dominance of the four established High-Tech trends makes the global economy vulnerable to any disruption to them – and each trend also causes side-effects in its own right
  • Important elements of High-Tech Capitalism such as competition nevertheless cause increasingly dangerous lack of control across the world economy
  • High-Tech is inducing inevitably-escalating instabilities within some world faiths that are generating Religion side-effects that in turn destabilize everything around them
  • High-Tech Industrialization generates two main side-effects that together threaten both the potential for Global Renaissance as well as programs to avert those threats
  • High-Tech combined with Population is causing side-effects that threaten extensive destabilization resulting from Competitive Overuse of resources crucial to the world economy
  • High-Tech Globalization so heightens other threats that the international community now has no mechanism to evolve effective counter-strategies against growing Global Chaos

 

Despite the crucial actions of governments, corporations and institutions it is a High-Tech-enabled general public triggering the emergent behavior of Boundaryless People-Power that ultimately will choose between Global Renaissance and Global Chaos
