The Global Wars of the Mind
By Naseem Javed
Our world of today is now extremely interconnected and interdependent, it is alive, thriving 24x7x365 and interactive, yet pulled apart, by minds scared and unable to decipher the new wide-open limitless landscapes, unable to read the collaborative intricacies, therefore seeking ideological refuge in tribalism. World is not at war it is the caged-minds.
Across the world, some 200 nations and 10,000 cities are facing techno-calamities; the unstoppable rain-falls of almost free technologies over flooding withering economies, caught in hyper speed processing, fierce hypersonic global-age-competitiveness, while populace of the world dazed at inflation, recession and depression, struggling on climate change and political change crises seeking to save their own lives, peace disrupted nations.
Henceforth, some nations are advancing by the hours, some wandering around sundials waiting for the right sunshine to measure time and some searching for the sundials. It is easy to identify who is who as technology creates exposure and transparency. Political leaders across the world are currently occupied slaying the dragon of economy to finance the wars. Minds needed to create grassroots prosperity and up-skilling citizenry but not the destruction of grassroots.
The citizens; spanning across the free world, national citizenry, frozen like an NFT without new up-skilling and re-skilling still stuck in the mud. Miniscule numbers of economies are advancing while others are only sliding back fast. New global financial landscape slowly emerges.
The term ‘economics’ as a ‘number-science’ visibly failed and as a ‘behavioral science’ now begging for lollipop and a diaper-change, critically deprived of entrepreneurialism, now longs to retire in the abstract glories of the past, so, what is going to happen? What new rules will emerge and what kind of new minds are called? When obesity needs a life size mirror, economic development needs a calculator from the local dollar store. Silence is not the answer.
The World Wars of the Minds: When already hypnotized fighting the mesmerized on fakery; the illusionists fighting hallucinationists on vision. Hypo-crypto-tyrannies fighting NFT framed ideologies. When propaganda defines breaking news, when politics fully smoked and mirrored in search of bi-polar minds. Elections remain as the only repeated entertainment series on Wokeism melting into Fakeism.
However, the world economies, now surrendering to standardization of corruption as justification to protect lingering incompetency, the battlefields of the mind maps are well drawn. Therefore, when almost everything is fake, only human bodies are real, starvation is real and blood is real.
Nevertheless, Humankind is not Animalkind; so long there exists any distinct awareness of the possession of the mind, the known miracle of the universe, claimed and isolated from the animal kind. Beyond the horizon lies a better enlightened world. Change is a must. Often, change is impossible, to accept change is not a sign of surrender but rather a display of courage to advance. New thinking is always very offensive; debating new ideas is not fighting but a sign of wisdom and critical thinking.
Are there any corrective models left? Are citizens so much lagging behind the techno-calamity-age that they cannot cope? Has the technologically advanced culture and high priced mass produced business education now become a wrong fit and created outdated experts in already thrown-out business models? Is leadership capable of creating meritocracy or going for drainage?
Perhaps, it is just the battle of the ‘outside’ as what is outside us, and it has now defeated us on what is ‘inside’ us, or what is in our minds hidden or untapped. Culturally, the materialistic out-side intensely focused on the highly visible fakery of the exterior glaze, tone, facade and patina, today losing its value and luster, now clings to the deeper issues of the inside, the wisdom, the emotions, the truth and the meaning of life and variations of success and degrees of advancements. Is this why, western economies today having mental-health as the number one top issue on real challenges of human productivity?
Do not see only with your eyes: Nevertheless, what is visible only remains visible for a period of time, what is invisible remains forever, therefore seeing with mind also has far more value? Is this the time when suddenly masses may aim for common good?
Nations just do not march into other nations; only elected national leadership sends their innocents to march to death traps.

Lessons learned from the last Millennia:
The trajectory of humankind on structuring social balance to the present times: The creation of The First World measured in power, over the Millennia; created where elitism started, color of supremacy was white, gold a standard, advancements earned openly or stolen models, via slavery, bondage, domination of civilization.
The Second World stayed in a catch up to power, the doctrine applied ‘fake it till you make it’, catching up to The First World. The Third World emerged in creating an aware public with some power, This last century; where population-rich-nations, basically dreamt and struggled to become and survive like knowledge-rich-nations of the first world. Now the arrival of
The Fourth World now attempts to create common good as new power. As our new borderless digitally connected populace of the world. Now they are sharing the commonality of problems, creating a new vision and collaborating on solutions for better life and pursuing common good.
If the First World and Second World proved their power by a ‘seek and destroy’ mentality, is it possible that Third World and Fourth World will rather build comminutes and global common good for a better sustainable living. What does all this mean is the world being divided not by race and religion but by ideologies, and the global economics into ideological wars? What does all this mean?
The Imbecilians of the Order of Debt; when fakery is oozing from every little crevice of the skull, when greed the only audible word from the likes of scavengers, the Imbecilians of the Order of Debt, gathers to have a feast on their accumulated debt. No, there is no solution. The cycle must complete. Total disruption needed to create new thinking. Small business only goes to jail for photo-coping one dollar, here entire treasuries are routinely reproduced.
Visible across the badly damaged free economies of the world; the lingering and irrational brutality to citizenry, chaos and turbulence amongst leadership, across the elite corridors where billions restless getting ready now demand justice. The thin blue line shakes, militarized back-ups awaits, the sirens of confusion blasting, the anaconda of silence strangles the narratives even more harshly.
The economic models too severely damaged, rotten to the core, fixing now impossibility, needed is brand new thinking, bold narratives and entrepreneurial mindsets. Nevertheless, needed as always, first create a war of sorts. The world wars of minds.
Critically missing are the bold open discussions; the corrective measures must seek new warriors with new collaborative narratives on national mobilization of entrepreneurialism to rebuild broken economies, in search of diversity, tolerance and grassroots prosperity. This time around, it is the humankind that needs a diaper change; so eventually it may learn to walk. No need to push that red-button. The rest is easy.
