The Children of 2000 & the Paradoxical Society

Children across the world born in the year 2000 are now reaching mature age by 2030. This generation, born in a computerized age of immense global connectivity, knows far more and beyond than any previous civilization at that age.

The most powerful and hidden feature bifurcates into the ‘commonality of symptoms’ where across the world nations have similar problems and similar symptoms and secondly, this new generation, despite may not know a lot or very deeply on topics, but they certainly know a lot more and more comprehensive global age thinking in that particular age group.

Nation-by-nation, culture-by-culture, their knowledge base is impressive as they show skills needed to devise better governments and select better people. In the past, highly educated nations only had the most incompetent governments; repeatedly, it was all due to a need for global-age skills and appreciation. The future in the hands of global thinkers will help solve global problems. 

Election-by-election across the free world, a new landscape is emerging. The 2024 elections will readjust the politics and force major changes, across the world.  

Henceforth, once the election machines and artificially controlled fake intelligence issues finally reveal the real truth about foreign interference. The globally connected generations of Children of 2000 may ultimately help select the exemplary leadership and formulate the right governments, where today, despite all the deep affiliations with Machiavellianism, the global political systems are not impressive enough or qualified to cope with our daily realities.(Excerpted from ‘The Children of 2000’ Naseem Javed, pamphlets and lecture series 1985)

Understanding the Last Seven Societies:  During the Print Society in 1900, when the printed word was power, literacy was perquisite, and only the privileged had access to knowledge.

“The Radio Society brought information freely available to the air and music to tap dance on assembly line floors. The ‘voice’ created radio personalities with opinions, and opinion leadership became noticeable. There were five other major societies. TV Society brought live-action dramas and started colorful consumerism. Telecom Society shorthanded distance and created standardization. The Computer Society created miniaturization and a sense of accuracy. The Cyber Society brought the world to the desk and started the diffusion between work and other lifestyles. We just left the Click Society, which brought the world into our pockets and seriously disrupted the traditional work model. “Excerpted Source: Naseem Javed, Sunrise, Day One, Year 2000. Published in 1995, Published, IABC Communications World, Dec. 1995, Volume 12 Issue 11, Article, ‘Chronology Charts’ and lecture series.

Why is a similar scenario 120 years later occurring today, as futurism demands futuristic literacy? We are forcibly advanced from a social media-centric Click Society to a new Thinking Society, instinctively to save humankind. It calls again for futuristic literacy to cope with the monstrous technocalamaties driven by AI and ChatGPT offerings at our doorsteps. Extraordinary skills will be needed.

Conclusion: We are now a new Society with a new twist; we have advanced a lot in worldly knowledge but slowed in evolutionary wisdom, while our distractions seriously hampered our rationale and critical thinking. Like children in a forest, we advance with trepidation, frightened but not sure; all known appears unknown, but we are dreamers and seek a better world even at the risk of destroying all.

We are now a Paradoxical Society; we know everything but have learned nothing; we have everything but still feel nothing; we want peace, so we have wars; we want diversity via mastery of hate; we dream of tolerance and wake up in insecure rage.  We want protection by hurting others. We will survive somehow, even if we destroy all; we will progress only when and if we slowly advance and learn to love, think, and talk. And we will save the planet very well, but after its destruction.  We are smart but not enough to know our limits. We are a paradoxical society; therefore we must march ahead, even without maps. We know that we know enough. That is why, we are the paradoxical. The rest is easy.

Naseem Javed
Naseem Javed, a Canadian born in a printing publishing family of small merchants, settled over two centuries surrounding the Red Fort in Chandni Chowk, Delhi, India. Educated and raised in Karachi, Pakistan, and arrived in Canada fifty years ago. He spent years at the 1976 Montreal Summer Olympics and learned how to create and develop global-stature organizations and events. Acquired global experiences, serviced dozens of Fortune 500 companies as a senior advisor over 25 years, and learned how to commercialize, monetize, and popularize complex ideas globally. Later, in 2000, Naseem took a sabbatical when he noticed markets lost the art of value creation and adopted value manipulation when one million dollar turnover factories traded as 100 million dollar operations in stock exchanges. He took all his high-value knowledge and experiences, placed them in a shoe box, and almost free for the world's 100 million Small and Medium Enterprises. He developed The National Mobilization of Entrepreneurialism Protocols. The rest is history. Now highlighted as a corporate philosopher, the Chair of Expothon Worldwide, and recognized authority on new economic thinking, where the mobilization of small and medium business entrepreneurialism is tabled as the savior of already struggling economies. Expothon has been sharing weekly information with some 2,000 senior officials at the Cabinet level in around 100 countries for the last 50 to 100 weeks. The narratives are an open challenge to current economic development and offer pragmatic solutions and new thinking on mobilizing the untapped talents of the national citizenry. He is a world-class speaker and author, gaining global attention.
