Same as February, except for a blog link at the end.

The drama of daily humanity is All we are. That is, the entirety of humanity is implicated in the days of global drama.

I’m regularly stunned by what happens. Keeping up is exhausting sometimes, as well as depressing. Yet, my frustration is luxuty compared to what most of humanity endures daily. But I do my best to be basically optimistic.

This Area of the site will develop Leading Event topics, which is not like ephemeral advents, i.e., what’s important this week in The News. Examples of Leading Event topics are: techumanity (I like the rubric “hyperNet City”), metropolia antedating statehood, modernization in Africa, sustainability of the UN (and humanity a century from now), Critical Moments (long-term crises), and the Anthropocene (our planetarity).

There’s never enough economic valuing of community over oligarchy; never enough presence of large-scale leadership in thinking, never enough overriding of short-term opinion marketing; never enough focus on well-being that prevails over consumerism.

I have a large archive covering tens of topics to develop here, not all fitting into notions of Leading Event, but all serving my interest in our conditions of being in Time. I could simply list my upcoming foci, but that’s not very informative. You know what the leading issues are!

A recent project that is relevant to this area is “astute reasoning and ‘fake news’.” You may find tiresome that I’ve linked to parts of this project in above Area pages, now linking to the entire project. But that little project exemplifies my hope to embrace all of the Areas of this site in working with specific topics, echoing the value, “Think globally, act locally.” Another way to put that is: Think holistically, act specifically.

If you want my opinion about Leading Events—I presume you don’t (IMHO)—then you might wonder: What’s the background basis for that view? The four Areas above are addressing that.

A new blog that will be especially devoted to this area is “american earthling.”
