C-166. Distribution problems

Ironic as it may seem, and tragic as it is … that though we as humans share the persisting consequences of needed functionality (III; C-115,144), we find it difficult and frustrating that we are not able to readily share the solutions we have.

As though our other problems – flawed minding protocols (0:S-P; e.g., C-114,124)), pollution in consequence of problems solved (0:Ps; e.g., C-98) and problems not yet solved (0:P; e.g., I:Pbeh – the behavioral problem) were not trouble enough, solutions that need to be repeated (0:Sp) press steadily and problematically downward on resources needed elsewhere to advance the quality of life.

Education, we have seen, serves as a conceptual label for our necessarily continuing efforts to keep solutions available to successive generations of step takers. This is one kind of sharing. There is also the matter of sharing solutions across the world’s populations, human and otherwise.. Mass communication developments have made many of these inequities more visible. Thus locally shared deprivation, such as that once experienced, is no longer the defacto buffer it was.

Inequities threaten community viability, and thus the prospects for collective, especially interdependent (C-112: Union) efforts to deal with our most challenging problems.
