The Future of Work without work (the future of humankind)
Futures studies (aka futurology) & singularity warns us about the need to come back to the natural education of youth and promotion of entrepreneurial drive (the core of natural education) in order to survive the disruptions to come.
Changing our mindset and beliefs about nowadays education and work (created during the XIX century, actually) is the only way to walk the brand new world to come when no need to be employed to survive and the core of our lives is (may be) the importance of creativity and entrepreneurial mindset (just the ones not developed in formal education), to survive the singularities to come.
We should be aware about about some asumptions we were educated to believe as universal truths (e. g. the need to work in order to survive) are just sociohistorical inventions and not natural facts, which are actually very recently created and soon totally outdated and surpassed by the deep global socioeconomical crisis and technological revolution the plandemic is just speeding up and we soon will be finally aware about, instead of continuing believing the economy and labour force will be the same in the next decades as it was during the XIX century.
We should be aware about he crucial importance of entrepreneurial drive and mindset for the future of humankind and not only to get one of the rare and scarce jobs available in the (near) future under the evidence that automatitation and Artifical Intelligence (AI) will manage most of the ordinary and qualified work needed in a more efficient, productive and sustainable way. The last is not an opinion but actually what is expected by the main minds behind the development of AI with the vission of getting rid of the need to work to survive so we may enjoy our lifes and develop our societies in a real human and prosperous way...
