Multiculturalism Is Unavoidable — Whistling In The Wind

Now and again you see complaints about multiculturalism and articles that claim: “Multiculturalism has failed”. But this doesn’t really make sense because multiculturalism can’t fail, it’s unavoidable. Every country in the world is (and almost always was) multicultural and a monocultural society is practically impossible. Every part of our society contains influences from other cultures.

Poetry!

We all wear a shade of lies. Covering our bitter sadness with all of these make believe truths. You show the world there is hope, But the hope you once held yourself is gone for your hopeless self. Spewing answers you may be able to think of to the world you know. But always searching […]

Deleuze/Guattari: ‘Stop the World!’ — Techno Occulture!

One of the things of profound interest in Castaneda’s books, under the influence of drugs, or other things, and of a change of atmosphere, is precisely that they show how the Indian manages to combat the mechanisms of interpretation and instill in the disciple a presignifying semiotic, or even an asignifying diagram: Stop! You’re making […]

Esko Kilpi on Interactive Value Creation

We have so far followed a very crude pyramid-like classification in work: skilled work was what highly educated individuals would do. Semi-skilled work was possible for trained people. Unspecified labor was what almost everybody could do after onboarding. This classification of work led to the unintended consequence that the most economical design of mass-era organizations reduces the amount of skilled work and increases the amount of less-skilled work, thus reducing costs. A bigger problem than low-skilled people is the low-skilled occupations we have created.

Classification of work as different bundles of skills and responsibility has been very easy to grasp and easy to follow in compensation schemes. More skills and/or more responsibility — more pay. Managers, who are responsible people, are given responsibilities — and higher wages. Workers are given less demanding tasks, less responsibility — and lower wages. The argument behind is a circular, self-fulfilling prophecy. People who are not made responsible tend to avoid…

Having a Skill set is not enough!

It is NOT enough to have skill sets. Human relationships require ‘people skills’ rather than ‘technical skills’. For centuries, we educated our children to become good professionals. We overlooked the importance of being a human when interacting with each other. Being ‘human’ requires ethics and being professionals require rules. We have wasted our resources by focusing on and implementing rules. We have starved and generated unnecessary suffering for one another by becoming devoted followers of rules in our social interactions. Maybe it is time to open our eyes and connect with one another as humans. Maybe it is time to learn how to build relationships, how to make decisions, and how to manage adversities based on relational ethics. Maybe it is time to stay away from corporate rules and become ‘human’.

Happy Possibilities!

Yearning!

I’m nine hundred and fifty miles away. Without any delay, The thought of you has also traveled straight my way. And they say, Time helps the heart forget. Yet we shared nothing that makes me ache. Only my hope of being the one you yearn for. © Duc Nguyen WordsOnEmptyEars, 2015
