The Ladders to Success will be Reopened
Collusion between government and influential business resulted in many pathways to success being walled off and gated. Today, to succeed, you will have to appeal to one of these gatekeepers, follow their rules, and succeed on their terms. This harms innovation and degrades the ability of people to lift themselves up into success. Society keeps telling us the path to success is simply to work hard and come up with a valuable idea: Unfortunately the reality is not so simple. Society has been distorted to such a degree that you will be blocked and hampered at every turn when pursuing real innovation. If you somehow manage to carve out a chunk of success despite all of the roadblocks, your profits will be bled out as government increases regulation and taxes year after year. But this is all about to change.
If you have made it this far chances are you have a good idea of what is coming; economic collapse. This will be an incredibly difficult time for America, and we will likely come out of it much worse off as a country. But that doesn’t mean good things can’t come from hardship. This economic collapse will have the effect of destroying or making irrelevant many of the policies and players that block your access to opportunity. That means the gates will be rapidly flung open. If you are an entrepreneur starving for the chance to make your mark on the world, you will soon get your chance. It is up to us how we handle this coming crises. We can let it destroy our spirit, or leverage it as our chance to rebuild infrastructure through the freedom to innovate.
Find Your Opportunity
We need tools and infrastructure to foster liberty. This means everything from social media, news sites, education platforms, digital tools, communication devices, frameworks and more! We need payment processing systems and decentralized web hosting built on the blockchain. We need games that poke fun at statism and promote freedom.
Our children are being indoctrinated into a culture that promotes large government while disparaging individual responsibility and strength. Higher education institutions have become completely unaffordable and do not foster the skillsets needed to succeed. For the furtherment of liberty, teachers of all stripes should build new flexible curriculums to help parents, and adults, control their educational choices, lower the cost of education and develop actionable skills.
Health Care Professionals
Our health care system is unworkable. We need to get back to a relationship model where doctors and health care providers work closely with the patients in their communities. We need innovative ways to lower costs and improve health outcomes. Brave people willing to follow the facts and speak out against the nonsense are desperately needed.
We need to rethink how we process, design and build everything. Billions of people on this planet compete for a decreasing amount of resources. The long-term solution is efficiency, recycling and repurposing. Additionally, manufacturing will need to be brought back to the local level. This requires embracing new manufacturing processes like electro-chemical machining and 3D printing.
Mechanically inclined people keep the world running. From maintaining to outright building vehicles, systems and machines, this is a critical job that all functioning societies need.
We need to build and maintain all kinds of structures, but also explore cheaper and more efficient building methods. Our current building model is expensive and inefficient. Low-maintenance, low energy design ideas like arch buildings, earthbag homes and passive structures have been explored, but much work needs to be done to scale these ideas into reality. There is lots of space for innovators to change the construction market.
Many freedom-loving people out there don’t know they way forward. They are surrounded by people with bad ideas who will take them down the wrong path. Influencers help reach these people are chart a path possible path forward in times of uncertainty and hazard.
Mass-production of food is dangerous and unsustainable. It creates long supply chains that can be easily disrupted by natural disasters, hostile actors or unrest. It also depletes resources like topsoil and water at alarming rates. Additionally it requires high transportation costs to ship goods from growing and processing sites to the stores where they are sold. The solution is smaller scale, more efficient technologies closer to consumers. This requires smarter farmers using geothermal systems, crop diversity, and herd rotation to use our limited resources efficiently and chart a sustainable path forward.
Websites, news, programs, interfaces for new devices… graphic designers and artists of all types can help shape a new world of entertainment or define how materials visually interact with users across new efforts.
Security, law enforcement, and sustainable hunting are all needed to keep an independent society going. If you know how to handle a firearm and want to be a part of promoting freedom, there is opportunity for you!
