Main reason for optimism is leapfrogging - thats when a society/place that was excluded from industrial age networks leapfrogs an old system to a new one thanks to 1000 times more COMstech than 1946; about a third of the world never had wired telephone lines, now almost all have mobile (text version); more than a quarter of the world never had electricity grids, now microsolar is linking in;.

|Even as the 1960s moon race inspired the world, we need to understand how unequal the opporttunity to innovate had been - even in the 1960s as many as half the world's people had no access to electricity grids so they got their news of the moon race by word of mouth.|
Consider 1000-1500- until the last few years of this period , the known world was Europe-Asia and NE Africa; #BR8 the med sea was the main world trade waterway; places facing this sea increasingly developed win-win trades; moreover #BR7 the west asian border to med sea was the start of an amazing overland relay of traders which stretched all the way to china (the silk road was the greatest overland world trade route ever and to sustain its interfacing markets required positive cross-cultural bridging all along its route. Silks and spices from the Chinese end acted like a positive currency- there was much demand for them whose value naturally went up the further they were merchanted back to Europe. Everyone gained for this trading route- you can read marco polo's diaries- perhaps nowhere invested more in artistic celebrations of being a major hub of positive trade than his hometown venice in europe and the town he was asked to govern for 2 years in china Hangzhou which marco described as the great town of markets in the world.)
What happened towards 1500 that 2 long shipping routes were discovered by north europeans- the new world of the ameriucas to the west (#BR6 N, #BR10 what we now call Latin America), and a way of reaching the @BR2 South Asian coastal Belt (starting with the indian subcontinent) by sailing around africa. A ship captain couldnt affird such a long return voyage unless he goit what trade he wanted- soon this big ships were equipped with gun power and crews were pressganged or even enslaved. Next in the process was colonising. So it was that nations became big by pludering economies of other peoples places. Back in 1500 places economic size was corelated with population. Soon Britain grew at the expense particularly of the Indian subcontiuent. Mainly Britain and France colonised Africa too, Spain andPotrtugal colonised Latin America. North America was settled by a mixyure of Europeans whose declaration of Indendence in 1776 ended any attempt by Britain to colonise America, But we should note that the USA was built on a sort of internal colonisation - natives had theor places taken over and slaves were used to do most of the hard labour. In effect the old war's colonial ways casued the 2 world wars of the fkirst half of the 20th C. From 1946 most of the world's countries regained their independence but starting from (mainly undeveloped states - poverty that the colonia era had gtraped them in).
Ironically whule the UDA came to tghe resuce of the old workld and from 1946 helped relaunch the two biggest losers of world war 2 Germsny and Japan, american (not withstandiong thair family trees origins) had previously had little modern of knowledge of Eurasia but were pulled into peacekeeping and the cold war with russia through the sceond half of the 20th C. Whilst there was some understanding of the extraoerdinary progress japanese enginers made with electornics, civil and other enginnering, the rise and rise of the east and the often difficult bodrers that had been caused by British and Jpoanese colonisation of the region are not deeply studied by most Americans or their media. It should be the best news the world has ever seen that the fifth of the world in chjna tghat closed itself to the world for more than a centiry after Brfits has offered opium as a gtrading currency in 1860 is now as entrepreneurial as anywhere. With over half of tghe world's ;people facikng either the sout asia or east asia coastal belts, the opportunity the east is cfreating to win0pwin gtrade oin line with moore's ever increasing technology should make sustainable youth worlwdie the gfreatesty positive curency-invetsment the human race has ever mapped. But this is not how USA or the block of coungtriues ruled by the Euro have marketed transapfrently. Instead we are caught in the Keynsian crisis of economist not valuing the hippocratic oathes he had published as tghe final chapter of the ngeneral throy of employment money and interest. The 2020s are likely to make the system designs our tech spreads irreversible- will the end game be big brother extinction or little sister sustainability?

ahead of beijing's girls conscious journalism week april 16-22: I wanted to update you on small steps for progress on health care for and by disadvantaged adolescent girls- i believe that is george and the lancets main missing curriculum to open up learning ; not just valuable in itself but the processes need for peer to peer girl centred learning connect with all united races to sustainability goals especially on Tipping Point days for humanity - NOW! Trump meets Jinping (mediated by the remarkable worldwide's First Lady Peng)
do you know the story of how 4 black girls in 1881 sued a baltimore ocean liner for throwing them off it (25 years before gandhis' train experience that led to 25 years of grandads mediation with gandhi and india's D of I and planted social justice seeds of Mandela) - they won their case and in 2017 Rev Al Hathaways baltimore communities have for 1.33 centuries been the deepest cultural epicentre of the joy of social justice in usa ever nurturing such alumni as thurgood marshall
on this day which needs to go down in the future as the inauguration of sino-usa collaboration on every social small enetrprsie world trade my father ever hoped 1000 times mores spends on commns technology versus 1946 -out of america al's communities in baltimore are just about the only openly/bravely collaborative ones left for inner city disadvantaged families to link through - fortunately baltimore has a superb public health official elena wen; and while jim kim isnt alowed to spend any formal time on helping communities in usa he and Al are mutual friends as is pope francis
it was the franciscan way of the 1960s that inspired sir fazle abed to empower girls to build bangladesh and from 1980s paul farmer and jim kim and ophelia dahl to build partners in health
so are there any time-sensitive mutual projects you all could update on? - and since the key to girls empowerment is chinese and bangladeshi girls networking at the speed of light illuminated by jack ma and sir fazle abed (and on a good day george soros) if you have any chinese friends in beijing or who can find friends in beijing our young girls journalist team desperately needs to celebrate them now (beijing apr 16-22)
thanks and hope that its time for health to be 10 times more affordable accessible for all otherwise why have we spent 1000 times more on communications tech- fortunately al can recruit the best black american coders of blockchain and i am told that is the last of the entrepreneurial revolutions that we the ;peoples need to linkin with the worldwide web and universal mobile...
