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?

Michael Palin gets job creators vote as the last BBC tv presenter who is truly his own man. By which we mean he chooses only to present topics where the censors at the BBC will not come into play as he lets his curious mind explore the world with love and humor. This clipping of Palin celebrating being with the Russian navy at Vladivostok is priceless:
  • Funny
  • Loving on all sides

Somehow MP got through both Russian and BBC censors at the denoument of his program full circle which visited neighboring cultures from north to south to north. Not even the open spaces linked in by Xi Jinpings amazingly gracious Belt Road explores with such grace travel through neighbors who have had high walls erected between each other but turn out to have such decent people inside. Communities made desperately lonely by failure to resolve historical conflicts which weren’t the peoples fault, but were the maddeni ng games of big bankers and big carbon.

Michael isn’t just a navigator of how any two peoples cultures could find there’s more common kindness aching to be released between generations than historical angst

He comes from what I dare call the amateur school of acting which is Cambridge footlights and which we Scots also celebrate annually as free arts festival of the Edinburgh Fringe

Cambridge’s brilliant pro-youth Economist W99 Maynard Keynes was a lover of the arts and a believer that however robotic society became there would always be huge amounts of work for artists to facilitate so that every community could thrive.

Cambridge Arts Theatre is a 666-seat theatre on Peas Hill and St Edward's Passage in central ... When only £2,300 was raised by subscription of the town, Dr Keynes underwrote the rest himself. Intending to represent both "town and gown", ...
Capacity: 666
Opened: 1 February 1936

 Cambridge Footlights remains that space in Cambridge University and Theatre where students active amusement grows round experimenting as stand up comics and performers of satirical sketches. Back in the student days of Palin, none of the famous footlighters as far as I know were expecting to go into a career in entertainment- they all had academic degrees to study but did so with an extrovert joy of youth which used to have some peculiar coinstraints in the old style male Cambridge Colleges. Moreover in Micheal’s student days Cambridge didn’t yet have a busineess school. Extraordinary innovatoions rthat had come out of Cambdige like the discovery of DNA were done as pure exploration to improve the human lot not as pure commercialism

Palin was part of the team whose 1960s renditions of Monty Python stood on a free spirited par with say the Beatles “imagine” of IF man and computer can race to the moon- why should there be any challenge that humanity will not be able to solve. In those 1960s, we (English-Speaking youth) were naive to believe that our race would never be confronted with any challenge to our societies sustainability other than ridding the world of nuclear superpower.

Back in 1984 my family argued, so far wrongly, that the BBC would be the jewel in the English speaking crown that would help the peoples mediate any conflict. Here you can see the list of timelines we were hoping the BBC asa world service owned by the peoples would open inter-generational space to but which it has so far failed to do

This isn’t Michael Palins fault. You can guage how the BBC gets censored by considering Tony Blair (or later the parliamentary inquest into Rupert Murdoch tabloid abuse in a mobile era) . Some of The BBC’s journalists had reasonable proof that Saddam didn’t have chemical weapons but Blair fancied being George Bush’s Little Big Brother, and so we went to war. What bothered me about this Iraq war is illustrated on the other side of the Atlantic at Geoirgetwon University where I was doing some volunteer work on media reality. Usually people are relatively free to enter Georgetown Campus. That day there was a pompous professor manning the gate – do not come in unless you believe in the war. I told him oh I am sure you will win your glorious war but I am scared your leader has no cultural plan on what to do as soon as he won the war. He looked as if he would pop out of his skin but by that time others were pushing through. The bullypit embedded in Georgetown and I survived to battle student freedoms for another day

I would love it if Micahel Plain could take back his own BBC footage and issue a youtube series on how the north south belt roads are as important to debate openly worldwide as te east west. More to the point his fans in Vladivostok would love to see a tunnel between the most extreme tip of north east asia and the nearly adjacent state of Alaska. That would be the day when small enterprises of the world’s most cold and land-locked peoples could get back to flowing free trade across all 4 hemispheres. If Americans truly are the free and the brave lets help the worldwide generation celbrate  building bridges and tunnels, no walls, and no more black&white holes in what is meant by the kind of social justice Baltimore girls stood up for in 1881 when their case law was the first to turn the 13th amendment end slavery into a local win-win (which became the social networks whose most famous 20th C alumni was Thurgood Marshall)

Michael has also had a pure green spirit. He selflessly chaired the Rural Geographical Society during the times when the great BBC naturye correspindent David Attenborough confessed his biggest mistake. Said David: being a broadcaster at the BBC is such a huge responsibility that I have never taken sides on an issue until I a sure its proven beyond all reasonable doubt. David was self-justifying why natures number 1 broadcaster in the English-speaking world had taken so long to come out on the side of the climate crisis. And there’s the mathematical rub- here is a pre-eminent naturalist saying in effect he only dared question something after its was exponentially breaching a tipping point towards collapse. How sad the BBC’s lack of freedom of speech has so far been when it faced critical tests of Truth’s Inconvenience.

Will English speaking peoples  ever regain the essence of world service that the BBC is so uniquely funded to be?
