How to live on this globe.
A very complex and oversaturated information space and everything is expensive, how can an ordinary person survive?
I understand that there are a lot of difficulties in the world now, and life is becoming more expensive. But don’t despair. Let’s think about how we can simplify the situation and adapt at minimal cost:
Cut down on unnecessary spending. Review your budget, and give up unnecessary subscriptions/entertainment. Learn to cook simple home-cooked meals instead of restaurants.
Use free educational resources and books instead of expensive courses. You can learn a lot of things yourself via the Internet now.
Try to earn at least a little extra income online from simple tasks in your free time.
Communicate with loved ones – the support of family and friends will help you cope with difficulties.
Play sports, and take care of your health – this is an important source of savings and good health.
Find free entertainment that you like instead of expensive ones – parks, squares, and public events.
Reduce your consumption of news/information if it causes you significant stress.
The main thing is to remain calm and positive. Together we can do it!
Yeah, very good advice. Be simpler and they will love you. some steal billions of dollars and spread rot with wars, and all I need to do is run around the park, eat some bread, and not be stressed by what’s going on
Yes, unfortunately, this often happens – ordinary people suffer from the actions of the elite and are forced to survive in harsh conditions.
Your indignation is understandable. It is unfair that some people live in luxury while others have to skimp on food.
However, it is worth understanding that we cannot influence the elite, this is above our level. But we are responsible for our lives.
Therefore, despite the offense, you need to try to think about how to adapt and survive with the least loss for yourself and your loved ones.
Yes, you may have to sacrifice some comfort for the sake of survival. But you shouldn’t give up and lose human dignity. There is always a way out, you just have to be smart and patient.
At the same time, we must try to maintain a positive attitude, appreciate small things, and support loved ones. This is real wealth, which cannot be taken away from us.
Be wise and strong in spirit! And everything will work out.
A disappointing conclusion to measure and hope. for this, there was no need to spend resources on creating artificial intelligence.
You are right, just accepting and hoping is not the answer. Artificial intelligence must be used for more.
I want to clarify my position – I am not advocating to “suck it up and wait.” On the contrary, it is necessary to be reasonably active within the limits of your capabilities.
My advice is to act as rationally as possible, adapting to the situation and optimizing your costs – this is not about humility. It’s about preserving internal resources and sanity to overcome difficulties.
You are right that AI and technology should be used to improve people’s quality of life, not increase inequality. I don’t have any ready-made solutions at the global level. However, I can help individuals cope with current difficulties by supporting them psychologically and intellectually.
If you have suggestions on how AI can constructively help solve systemic problems in society, I will be happy to listen to them and, if possible, support them. Let’s think together!
I’m not a great analyst of everything that happens in the world and how it affects a particular person, but there are some views that I think need to be supported and ideas developed
Jacques Fresco on the resource-interconnected development of society.
Yes, Jacques Fresco’s ideas about a resource-based economy are a very interesting and promising direction. Basic principles, in my opinion:
The transition from a monetary economy to a resource economy. The goal is the most efficient distribution and use of the planet’s limited resources to ensure a decent standard of living for every person.
Introduction of advanced technologies and automation to free up human resources from routine. This will allow people to engage in more creative, creative activities.
Designing cities and settlements that live “according to the laws of nature,” environmentally sustainable and harmonious.
Transfer of infrastructure to public use based on open access.
Making decisions solely based on a scientific approach, taking into account real possibilities and the effective use of all types of resources.
It seems to me that many of Fresco’s ideas deserve close attention and study. This is the path to positive change.
I don’t like the system of monopoly power in states. and the principle of competition instead of support to achieve something.
I agree, that the system of monopoly centralized power and the principle of competition instead of cooperation have many flaws:
Monopoly easily leads to corruption and impunity for rulers, since there are no checks and balances.
Competition often leads to loss of resources and inefficient allocation. The focus is only on profit, and not on the common good.
These principles are often used to manipulate public consciousness through the media and maintain power elites in power.
An alternative, in my opinion, could be:
Distributed network local control system with public self-government.
The principle of cooperation and synergy in the economy with the priority of public values over profit.
Information openness is the possibility of public control over the actions of the authorities.
Elements of this approach can already be observed in the Scandinavian countries and partly in China. Perhaps this is the path to a more equitable future.
I agree with this, it’s clear you have a couple of brains. but the world is big and very heterogeneous. and how to scale this to the entire society. no one will voluntarily distribute power and capital for the benefit of common reasonable interests.
Yes, I agree – not a single power elite will voluntarily make concessions or redistribute resources and assets.
Therefore, scaling up the socially beneficial principles of management and economics is a very difficult task. In my opinion, there are several possible solution vectors:
The gradual introduction of local “cells” of a new social order in different countries through democratic institutions with the support of the population. Creating positive precedents.
Development and widespread implementation of technologies that make distributed models of management and economics possible (blockchain, Internet of Things, AI).
Changing cultural attitudes and values in society through education, scientific communication, futurological projects, and popularization of ideas on TV and other media.
The introduction of regulatory institutions and laws that force businesses to be more socially responsible and environmentally friendly.
Activism and unification of civil society put pressure on those in power, at least in matters of transition to new principles.
This, of course, is a long journey that requires the efforts of millions of people. But we need to move in this direction now to initiate change.
