I feel like he addressed the issue in a very yellow way here, especially when this song talks about the slightly toxic sides of stage green community...

I'm sure Putin is very low on the spiral like stage red but to me this speech sounds like spiral wizardry understanding how it all must work together not just looking at the green part of it that Greta focusses on.

An excerpt from the Amazing book "Finite and Infinite Games". Which is a criticism of vMEME Orange pragmatism. Made from the perspective of the vMEME Yellow.

 

 "To be prepared against surprise is to be trained. To be prepared for surprise is to be educated.
Education discovers an increasing richness in the past, because it sees what is unfinished there. Training regards the past as finished and the future as to be finished.
Education leads toward a continuing self-discovery; training leads toward a final self-definition.
Training repeats a completed past in the future. Education continues an unfinished past into the future. "

Love it. Therapy should also be a thing for rehabilitation of criminals.

Gregory Bateson

 

 

 

He wrote a book called "An Ecology of Mind"... seems to be pretty popular.  Peter Ralston also recommend reading it in one of his book list recommendations.

Jared Diamond is a really good example as he's all about going to the root as well as systemic issues. He has the systems thinking mentality that the race IQ people utterly lack. And the way that he comes to his systemic conclusions is by studying the systems very well, he sees how history (he's a historian) and the modern day, all of our institutions, are intertwined in a massive web. Jared is a YELLOW historian.

Great points. In addition to this I think that his travels around the world, having spent much of his working life in places like Papua New Guinea forming relationships with indigenous people, have given him additional perspectives to think about the modern world and the problems it faces.

I started the first part of Guns, Germs, and Steel... blew me away.  The interrelationships, complexity, systems thinking, and yet how everything works together smoothly, in an ecologically and systemically logical and intuitive fashion.  Changed the way I think (at least for a few minutes :P)

Also the fact that he's writing these books for the general public, and that he's able to present a nuanced look at the complexities of the systems he's analysing in a way that's understandable for a non specialist is a mark of just how good of a communicator he is.

Stage yellow analysis of news & politics. At least in Australia, I haven't read the other countries editions. Written by academics and not ideologues, and non-profit. Allows for different perspectives and nuanced thoughts.

If anyone is aware of any additional high quality news sources that offer a Yellow perspective on contemporary issues/politics, I'd love to check it out.
