Unlearning the Industrial Mindset
Douglas Breitbart & Fabian Szulanski 2017
We currently live in a world reflective of accumulated industrial programming that infuses, influences, and defines every aspect of human existence and enaction on our planet. It dominates both our imagination and language, such that even the idea of an alternative world is almost impossible to explore.
We advocate for an alternative more generative vision, language, and Values-set based on a human being-centered, commons-centered and empathetic worldview.
Unlearning the Industrial Mindset seeks to shed light on some of the core themes that anchor our industrial cognitive biases: humans as commodities, the industrial education model, top-down power and authority, money as value, survival of the fittest, and egocentric self interest; and provide an alternative Values vision, language, and approach to addressing our collective challenges..
