Blockchain = Tech DejaVu?

We are not claiming that human beings will try to eliminate their weaker counterparts from this planet, unlike any dystopic sci-fi series would have you believe. But, trust us when we say that things are likely to get messy. Only those who have an eye for change, the flexibility to adapt can succeed.

We sometimes feel, it comes naturally – the ability to adapt. But, in reality it is a life long process that takes several hit and trials to master.

No, Rome was not built in a day. But, if you push really hard crypto empires could be. Blockchain based success ventures could be. People are sick of the current world situation whose fundamentals are broke by trust breaches, lies and deceit. People need a remedy. A solution. This opens up enormous scope for the startup oriented business minds. The future holds big things for us.

Technological advancements can save this world.

But, this could also mean that human jobs are at stake. Personal relationships are at stake. People get so fed up out of this advertising wasteland which finds itself wherever they go, that they quit it all. People can quit yes, that is quite a possibility. They could quit technology, smartphones, gadgets, news, television and the biggest plague of it all – The internet.

But, why would they do so? Because, blockchain has solved everything. Human beings are not needed for jobs. Human beings are not required for creative work, such as creating animation, movies, recipes and or racing cars.

Not to forget that a fully automated life can be one hell of a boring one. But, hey stop, isn’t this what the old folks thought of movies and films replacing traditional story telling? And women thought of YouTube and e-books replacing the traditional aunt agonies, magazines, books and seeking help from actual aunts and uncles?

When tradition breaks it causes pain and discomfort for those in favor and those against, both, alike. This means that even the ones pro-supreme automation will have to face social backlash. The ones who might be deemed as obsolete, or, their services may be deemed as unimportant and irrelevant, they will be also clearly, and quite obviously facing discomfort.

This means there is a great deal of pain ahead. But, pain never kept society from evolution. Pain never meant that people can not grapple for the things they yearn for.

The computers replaced the needs for typerwriter typists, smartphones replaced personal assistants and software reduced the need for accountants. This never meant that technological advancement needs to stop. The future is optimized, fast and picture perfect. This must mean that it is good.

This only entails that what we will feel tomorrow is only what we have already felt for something else before. It is Dejavu.

Those who will be left behind must adapt. Because tradition has never borne any good in society anyway. And even if yester glory makes us feel too homesick and reminiscent of the past, tradition can not mean stagnation. We must send the nostalgia away and bring in the goodness of the future of things.
