If Quiet Quitting Results in Reduced Production – A Big ‘IF’​ – Then It Was Production That Never Was Paid For

Since my comment on LinkedIn about David Westin’s sub-par coverage of Quiet Quitting on Bloomberg Television, I am pleased to observe that he has lifted the bar to his normal high standard. Even articles on Bloomberg’s website with titles ostensibly indicating opposition to the trend on deeper reading point at all of the reasons forContinue reading “If Quiet Quitting Results in Reduced Production – A Big ‘IF’​ – Then It Was Production That Never Was Paid For”

Compassion Culture Benefits All Stakeholders Including Shareholders

Why is a compassion culture better for all stakeholders in capitalist societies including shareholders? Besides the threat of unheralded injury claims from toxic workplaces that put businesses in jeopardy (as I explained in “The Great Reset At Work“)… it is my thesis that a great deal of work done by white collar workers is ‘justContinue reading “Compassion Culture Benefits All Stakeholders Including Shareholders”

To Reset To a Compassion Culture A New Global Formal Greeting Is Necessary

In organisational and formal social culture, nothing speaks more to an imperialist white-supremecist patriarchal system based on domination than the handshake. There is so much social expectation and perception associated with the handshake. Virtuallly every person living in a western nation has had the feeling of having their hand twisted into a more passive positionContinue reading “To Reset To a Compassion Culture A New Global Formal Greeting Is Necessary”

The Great Reset: An explainer

After walking amongst humanity for a while, cycles beyond the seasons or clothing and hairstyles become noticeable. These cycles are noticeable also in political beliefs, and although that can seem boring to understand, it’s important because the political system affects all of us. Perhaps the most important political cycle that affects everyone is the balanceContinue reading “The Great Reset: An explainer”

The Great Reset: Inevitable, irreversible, deep-rooted in connection

The Great Reset is the era in human history that we entered (or which accelerated) in the COVID-19 pandemic where connection with ourselves, within society, and to the natural environment, and fairness, equity, inclusion and compassion superseded accumulation of material wealth and ‘winning’ as the primary aspiration within societies leading to more balanced and sustainableContinue reading “The Great Reset: Inevitable, irreversible, deep-rooted in connection”

Australia Must Pivot To COVID-19 ‘Normality’ Once All Residents Are Offered Vaccination

In February 2020 I was one of the first to speak publicly of the need for Australia to shut the borders and aim to eliminate what was then referred to as ‘the novel coronavirus’. In my first post on the topic published 3 February “Social Cohesion: The best vaccine against crises” I highlighted the uniqueContinue reading “Australia Must Pivot To COVID-19 ‘Normality’ Once All Residents Are Offered Vaccination”

More Evidence of The Great Reset Era In Action

Australia is in the midst of “the biggest uprising of women’s power [the nation] has ever seen” following repeated revelations of sexual assault and harassment by male politicians and staffers. Grace Tame, Australian of the year, an advocate for sexual assault survivors, said comparing responses to the pandemic and to women’s rights: we can’t fixContinue reading “More Evidence of The Great Reset Era In Action”

The Great Reset: Humanity demands leaders walk while chewing gum in the 21st century

The criticism most often levelled at President Franklin D Roosevelt – President of the United States from 1933 until his death in 1945 – is that he did not tackle racism and inequality. Excuses are made that the Great Depression and then World War II were such serious issues that political capital and attention hadContinue reading “The Great Reset: Humanity demands leaders walk while chewing gum in the 21st century”
