Seizing Governance

By editor on January 28, 2018 — 1 min read

Peace and prosperity comes from a combination of great governance and great capitalism. Democracy and capitalism. In a world where we see what’s happening on the governance side, we have to take things into our own hands and just build the things we need.

But in order to do that, people shouldn’t be job-hopping every two years. People should take bets on folks, people should trust folks that they’re well-intentioned, people should try to learn from their past mistakes. All of these things can be more systematic. If you do that then you’ve got a chance.

That’s what I would hope for, because I think we need it more than ever, and there are folks who will put a lot of our own money behind trying to make it so. And then along the way it’s gonna roil a bunch of people and piss a lot of people off, but it’s the right thing to do. (1:11:00)
