Global resilience

Vinay Gupta reminds me of Bucky Fuller: He thinks globally and designs odd-shaped structures. I like this:

So stop and think about this for a moment: what if the objective isn't to level out the game between winners and losers, but to make life as good as possible for the losers? If we accept that most people will be losers at some point in their lives, how do we design a good life for losers, for the mediocre, the untalented, the unlucky – for every single human being, no matter how "undeserving" they may appear to some means-testing meritocratic aid bureaucracy. This is "decentralisation" certainly, but not in the usual sense that people use the word.
Thanx to RAW Illumination.
