Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

And if I may be allowed a moment of Cookian visionariness...I believe that these kind of multidisciplinary organizations - that emphasise cooperation over competition - are the answer to the problems of democracy.

What we need to do is to remove the imaginary fences built around corporations, media, consumers, governments, social welfare, religions, academia etc and allow them all to be in the same boat, working together to find better solutions that fit all the problems.

In the long run I see these kinds of vertically/horizontally integrated organizations as being better suited to finding the solutions to sustainability, and probably more efficient in the business sense since what they 'produce' will be pre-sold.

My business of marketing, advertising and communications will die out in its present form. But may re-emerge as 'facilitation' ;-)

Here's the nub of the problem...

Researchers have found that low self-esteem and materialism are not just a correlation, but also a causal relationship where low self esteem increases materialism, and materialism can also create low self-esteem. They also found that as self esteem increases, materialism decreases.

Thanks to Sven Trismegist, I finally understood what the LLP is: an entity which removes the imaginary fences built around corporations, media, consumers, governments, social welfare, religions, academia.. In other words a shapeless thing that absorbs everything whatever its nature. It's... The Blob!

Mon ami - your problem can be best dealt with by Whataboutblob - he is trained in these matters ;-)
