An evolutionary meritocracy should replace democracy. And already has, with or without human consent. Nature’s meritocracy.
We humans can pretend to rule nature, but to clear the air, nature rules us. And nature will continue to rule us regardless of the manmade constructs we make up. If the human species wants to survive as long as humanly possible, we must begin to adhere to nature principles.
We must learn to best play nature’s game.
Nature’s first-principles, not humanity, define the longevity of the human species. Our democratic institutions hinge on the false premise the consensus of all humans gathered in a group or country coagulated as human wants correlate to human needs as defined by nature. That is a foregone conclusion proven to be false.
For example, the accumulation of wealth does not improve human adaptability to nature’s entropy, as we witnessed in the case of Steve Jobs and others. Wealth is a manmade measure of “success” not in correlation with success as defined by nature.
Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of a cancer cell, according to environmentalist Edward Abbey. Sustainability, as the proclamation of infinite growth, is nonexistent anywhere in the universe, its false promises percolating the halls of finance and government. ESG, PRI and many other derivatives of sustainability are regressive to human evolution.
We are all created equal is another manmade fallacy, for any species evolves by virtue of the small part of differences between members of the same species. Selling equality as a desirable trait is an antidote to evolution.
The above chart indicates how measures of human excellence, described as dogmas, do not comport with nature’s principles as we know them today. It is clear that the downstream evolution from a 240-year-old U.S. Constitution is expressly incompatible with the upstream consideration of nature’s values.
Albert Einstein discovered the universe, and thus the world revolved around the theory of general relativity. One hundred years later, none of the systems of humanity, including the constructs conjured up by democracy, are systems of relativity. A democracy points the vector of human expansion not just in the wrong direction, it also falls one dimension short of human capacity and ingenuity.
An evolutionary meritocracy is based not on the age-old misconception of Darwinian survival of the fittest but on the survival of the most adaptable. Meaning that the improving strength of individual renewal determines the survival of a species, regardless of what attribute or composite of attributes improves that adaptability.
Humanity must deploy a new operating systems of humanity, based on nature’s first-principles that –for the first time– stipulate the theory, systems, and rules by which human efficacy and longevity can be dramatically improved.
It is time to turn over a new leaf.
