|. What clues from your family tree match adam smith's lessons on preventing human extinction?|
Adam Smith was in the right time and space to question how the age of machines and humans would be the most exciting time to be alive- for better or worse machines could change everything. Adam tried to map how every perosns life could have equal accees to applying machines
We can divide adam's exciting times into 3 urgent future reviews:
the next 10 years sustainability goals- eg economistdiary.com come to adam smiths glasgow uni cop 26 to mediate that
the first 75 years of the birth of the united nations 1945-2020
the first 165 years of humans and machines which climaxed in world war 2
I come from 5 generations of diaspora scots - so my family tree's cluetrain is quite long- in particular my father trained hundreds of journalists for humanity that most history is bunk - its written by the rich and famous not by we the peoples family tree.Lets' suppose you are american - your family tree's most urgent lessons for preventing extinction wont be the same as mine but can we find some snaps. if you are an american woman you have different lessons than american man; if you are a native american you have different lessons than if you are an immigrant; if you are an american white, what white empire crisis in rurope did you family flee from to help unite the american dream; if you are american black or brown, what is the most unique lesson to prevent extinction of our children or their childrens childrens. these are the most exciting times to list clues to how 7.5 billion beings can help save each other..
norman helped audiences of The Economist coin and debate telecommuting in the 1960s- his purpose was to argue for change in lifelong education ahead of time for every millennial to grow up as a brainworker or performer or last mile community celebrator of all lives matter --most jobs known in the 1960s would have gone just like most jobs changed whenever the motor car replaced the horse and cart- but that did not mean there would be any less work to do to ensure any community a child was born into offered a great chance to thrive norman's arguments weren't different from adam smth's at the start of the first age of humans and machines that was all about the energy machines could bring beyond the power of man or horse- with one big exception- this time the revolution would take 60 years at most- in other words within 3 living generations- youth , parents, grandparents what you needed to learn to have a great life and livelihhod would be wholly different- the risk of education systems examining old stuff instead of empowering teachers and students to exploe the new new world of community engagement, physical and digital classrooms would be all or nothing in terms of sustaining homo sapinens; some now define the 2020s as the age og industrial revolution 4- that fits normans model 1 was macine energy, 2 was machines assisting communications, 3 was what humans did with machines that could compute far more than 1960s as last decade of the slide-ruler, fourth everything would have converged so that operational platforms would be hosted with data crunched in real time -this would co-create public services the likes of which governments could barely imagine unless led by enginneers not lawyers of rules written in stone

3 of history's most interesting teenage explorers of new universities -1880s gandhi 1950s singh and abed
GANDHI FROM ALUMNI OF THE MOST GLOBAL PERSON OF HIS GENERATION TO ...
The teenage Gandhi didn't see anything worth life time studies in mumbai so he crowdfunded from his family to go to london (then centre of empire) to qualify as a barrister at bar of london. It was quite a future shock for everyone involved -eg gandhi was dismayed how many students of ruling the empire seemed to be drunk by the time. Gandhi spent his relaxation time forming a cross-cultural consciousness student network of every foreign student in london who didnt partake of alcohol. This was one of 7 accidents that was to make him the most worldwide networked person of his era -at least across the continents of asia where most people lived, africa and europe. Much later Gandhi was to perfect interacting with the quakers. They are one of the most peaceful revolutionary ovemnts. They invite the most powerful people to speak to a circle of them with one house rule. Once the speaker has spoken anyone in the circle is free to ask one and only one question. This reverses the usual question time - where there is a battle to be one of the few questioners. In the quakers format question first has no advanatage,. The circle literally quakes to see who will be the ice bfreaket with the high and mighty speaker. May eastern conscious group formats minimise verbal interactions anyway- somehow quaker and consiousness quitely took london by stomrn in the 1920s. This was one of 2 reasons why london gave away itgs empire so quicky. The other was the nation was too broke afyer world war 2 to try and oppose a fifth of teh worlds peoples demands. Yet the duasvdnatge of this was the hnadoer was hasty. The lawyer who darfyed version 0 of the legalese of india's indpeeence and gandhi had both expected the whole contient to be one united states of india. At le last moment west pakiatans aga khan family's stamped on mountbaten food and demanded a partitioning - so one fofth of peop,ke ended up with india and west pakitan as a new empire ruling over east pakistan
BACK TO ACCIDENTS OF GANDGI GLOBAL CELEBRITY
the second and third accidents occurred when he returned to bombay (now called mumbai) to find himself overqualified- those with big legal cases wanted a british bar of london barrister. GOING VIRAL Gandhi started writing about community challenges for a local newspaper. He would also pay street boys to sample copies of his writings. meanwhile he was finally offered a stream of work by the indian diaspora in south africa- before taking up this position- one of his articles had been sent by reuters from mumbai to london- the brits started spying on how was it that a young indian was linking across the empire on deeply social issues but with the legal power of a barrister
Although mush of gandhi's work only served to slightly delay apartheid becoming south afric a's legal system it wasnt until 1906 whyen he himself ws thrown out of a train for having the wrong colered skin to travel firsy class that gandhi hasd his aha moment - the law of london was spiralling poverty among his kinsfolk- not just in south africa but back home in india. Gandhi had a plan- aim to design a to0tally new livelihood-based education system before confronting lawyers with demnds for independence.
4th accident Over the next 20 years ganhi commuted between bombay, durban and london- the ships he took started to becoem a floating university with a few weeks of courses mediated by MG. On one of hos stopvers in london world war 1 broke lout. Gandhi wasnt able to sail for several months- so as a pacofist he joined tghe war effor by serving in london's red cross. Community health sevrices were to become a core curriculum in gandhi's education for all grades. He formed ashram which were vilage cooperatives where whole failies lived and both worked and learned togethr on food security and other rural developments including hme made textiles.
5th accident a centrepiece of ganhi's last vist to lonodn was a so-called roundtabe in 1925 at the quakers house auditorium opposite eueton station - one of the only affirdbale space where over 1000 people can meet. By this time people from all over europe were coming to listen to an asian who was declaring this ws his last visit to tghe capital and stgart of his peacefujl disobedience caapigns back in india. Surprisingly a row started with the suffragettes claiming gandhi was too chauvinistc - if he was going to free the fifth of the world who came form India- how would he include women. It is rumored that this is how maria motessori was matched up with him - both the most innovative educatgi9r of her age and a woman who dared launch a new form of schooling all acrosd Indian villages. When it comes to total educational reforme- Gandhi may not qui9te have scaled a new university but with mari he changed primary education especially in rural area
6th gandhi ivented tabloid publicity stunts with serious messages. British Law monolpoised the making of salt. So Gandhi organses a march from the rural ares to the coast where his comrades started to boil sea water to make saly cruistals. They were besten over the head by british troops supported by salts monoply law. My maternal bradfather - choef justice of mumbai- spent 20 yeras judging Gandhi befio9rfe gradad last job writing up the lealese of india's independemce.
7 so it was the father of india independence became his half century's most fsamous man across the half hempisher of the old world- and just at that peak was assasinated.
In the 1950s Manmohan Singh went to cor[us christo cambrisgde to stidy with Keynes (died 1946) favorite tutirs. His thesis how to design national economies aso as to compound no underclasses inside the nation or acrfoss borders to neighbouring nations. Singh appeared at indika's inflecyion point in the mid 1990s - tgeh fkirst tgime india effectively came out tfo world markets. He may not have been able to reform Indi's bureaucracy much but he was there at indioa's liftoff as a worfld trader- and while there many nevver be a new university of manmohan singh its his worfld trade alumni that give the fifth of people who come from india a leap into the 21st C
Also in te 1950s Fazle Abed came from what by then was caleld East Pakistan (ie what had been the most eastrely coastgal area of India under Britanmis) to Glasgow Uiversoty t studny the future of shpo enginnering. In one sense Glasgow U was a good choinc as since the 1760 it has been the origin of alumni of moral markets as well as the future of engines.Aned spent teh 1960s becoming an accountgant. In teh 2020s any university that is not connected withy brac parters cant really claim to be freeing its stduents ti dio the most ulta solutions of any of thye 17 sdgs- if you dint have the truts of the veryb poorest quarter billion of vilage women you cant expect to so sustainability goals for the bottom billion of even the boot half of the world.
