Interesting reading Yuval Noah Harari in '21 Lessons for the 21st Century' - not really the most comforting of books - because one chapter he writes centres on 'Community' and almost entirely (as an example) using Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg as the protagonist for good or ill (so there can be irony in using that very medium to comment!). And much of the theme of his book is the way the internet and algorithms, technology and Artificial Intelligence will inevitably drive, are driving, the future. Yet he returns to the undoubted truth that society for us individually really only functions on the small rather than large scale; our sense of place and community, the stories and future we envisage, presumably the resonances that cross between us, our shared skills and abilities, hopes and dreams - just as much online really as offline if the attempt is made to illustrate and analyse these.So is the American Stock Market and the Federal Reserve and the almighty dollar the root of all trust, as he describes (quote: “Money is the most universal and most efficient system of mutual trust ever devised.”), and "At this point, it’s hard to wonder what, if anything, will truly unnerve investors..."?www.vox.com/business-and-finance/22421417/stock-market-pandemic-economyOr does trust more lie somewhere else at the heart of, even as the root and branch, of any society? How do we discover it coming out of a pandemic: "In a year of scientific breakthroughs — and political failures — what can we learn for the future?"www.ft.com/content/f1b30f2c-84aa-4595-84f2-7816796d6841...

'This is not the pale shadow offered by the current government, but a bold generational plan, which assesses the environment as a whole, explains the necessity of protecting and enhancing our green spaces and offers a clear, economically viable strategy to put Britain on a greener path. Helm's undeniable arguments expose hypocrisy and inefficiency in our environmental policies and demand change.' ... See MoreSee Less
