The Kolding Manifesto
The Kolding Manifesto - Introduction
We consider the following to be self-evident facts:
The solutions exist
Problems come in lumps - and so do solutions
The simpleton manifesto
And who are these simpletons?
The Democracy Project & The Enlightenment Project
Features of a viable technology
Viable technology implies a rich knowledge and organisation structure
Viable technology generates meaningful culture
- Horsecart and/or tractor?
Some thrive on destruction
Irresponsible - and responsible money
Two modes of growth
The winner - not always the best man
Societal contracts versus competition
The democratic bottom and the mafiose top
Criteria of a reasonable technology development strategy
Global enlightenment, development, and democracy
A political two-way ticket
Free us from over-exertion
To the simpletons all the power!
