Techno-leaders: The Future Pied Piper
By Badar Sultan Minhas
AFTER INDUSTRIALIZATION came the information, age which is giving rise to a yet new jargon sustainable innovation. This all is preceded by the ever green ism of agrarianism based on the real social and societal needs, frugality oriented concepts and emphasizing the needs which are not projected but are de facto. The leaders back there in the ages of greenery, purity and natural demands we mainly focus on giving the rights of followers rather than focusing on aesthetics, luxuries and styles. We are having innovation as the great economic saviour to safeguard the industries conglomerating together pining for capital. These cartels are the ones who lead the needs projection market to get the business. And when the projection is turned into “addiction” strategically then it is the time for them to cash in on.
Leaders are now facing complex followers demanding not what the real needs are but needing what their wants are. “Addiction” has done the job to retune the pre-programmed nature loving minds. The slogans to turn the country into the hub of innovation, entrepreneurship and jobs to remain the world leader is what one may perceive from a techno-leader focusing not the needs but sophisto-tech needs to make the country men happy:
US President Barack Obama in September 16, 2011 had said, “We have to do everything we can to encourage the entrepreneurial spirit, wherever we find it. We should be making it easier and faster to turn new ideas into new jobs and new businesses. And we should knock down any barriers that stand in the way, because if were going to create jobs now and in the future, were going to out-build and out-educate and out-innovate every other country on Earth.”
These words are depicting the picture of a leader who isnt focusing the real issues as it;s not easy to be a real leader at the end of the day. It is only to lead for may be vested interests or it may be a hobby; perhaps it is the want to satisfy not the need to need to survive. We all are living in this world of technology where humans are of little use or just for fixing the technology. So, its not the food we need but the JOB.
The participants of the Occupy WallStreet are helpless innocent protesters who need yet more guidance to rethink about their behavior. These are the followers of the Pied Piper who is showing them prosperous life with technology which may turn out to be a mere projection to win business resulting often is hostile takeovers of the small and medium enterprises. The naive behavior is the result of the Pied Piper of the new era using technology to keep hold of followers minds and drive them to a place where there is entertainment, economy and ease in life but not the need fulfillment which gets buried for addiction.
A research said it all that a huge number of bacteria (about more than a trillion) are good for gut but our focus is on business as researchers are also following the Pied Piper. They are emphasizing the GMOs which can be produced by engineering biotechnology for health purposes. So, the products then can be sold for capital rather than produced for the welfare of humanity. We are not focusing on producing milk and yogurt but genetically modifying for the sake of entrepreneurism is being supported by innovation, jobbers not farmers and techno-leaders.
Mr. Piper is not just one but all the leaders in the countries are misguiding their followers by making false promises via innovation, technology, economy, entertainment and luxuries. We are facing the tough leaders because we humans are rough and following the false promise making leader has addicted us to luxuries alienating the necessities which are necessary for health and happiness. We see that the pure is great and valued more as it is expensive compared with in-organic counter parts. All we need is not just physical health but mental, social, moral, natural, ecological, environmental and at the last is agricultural health not capital, financial or economical health. But what I see is a voodoo spell casted upon me and all. Addiction of not letting us do what we need to do for the needs to be catered with pure health.
In the future we will all follow the Pied Piper blindly towards a destination called the black hole may be or a future full of wars for water and food; it will happen because of melodious tunes with magical words of innovation, moderation, economy, sustainability, jobs, technology etc.
We need to create awareness not buy the jobs, technology, innovation, economy and sustainability quoted slogans as they are only to win the elections. The real leaders were the ones who rejuvinated the mankind not by giving technology by giving the basic necessities. We have them in our history and in France its the Joan of Arc.
