@jwildeboer With KSA chairing the Human Rights Commission?
@jwildeboer Also to be clear that my concern is _not_ hypothetical:
@dredmorbius and I’m on your side. So let’s move onward. Find better solutions. Expose the failures. Iterate. Look forward.
@jwildeboer So, a couple of approaches I try to use:
1. Establish common ground or agreement.
2. Identify concerns or disagreeent.
3. Seek to expand 1 and shrink 2.
@jwildeboer A first question might be:
What problem are you trying to solve?
E.g., what's wrong with present systems? What do you want to do?
@dredmorbius I’ve said that in this very thread three times. We. Need. Global. Governance. For. Global. Problems. And our current systems do not deliver, as you pointed out. So. What’s next?
@jwildeboer "Global governance" is a means. "Global problems" is ... a problem _domain_.
The reason(s) for choosing the specific means isn't given.
Nor (at least directly) is the _ends_, the goal-state you're seeking to reach.
Consider that you're getting flustered addressing a relatively friendly audience here. Consider the circumstance of a more hardened adversary.
(Which presumes rational argument is effective, but for the sake of, er, argument, I will.)
@dredmorbius tell me about your solutions to the questions I’m asking. I tried to sketch mine.
@jwildeboer We're at a bit of an impass.
Unless your problem is "I want to build a hammer house using hammers", then it's not clear to me what _your_ rationales for choosing your method(s) are.
Again: I start from _problem_ moving through _desired state_, assessing _possible paths_ and _potential partners_, to _methods_. And complete with an assessment / post-mortem of the process.
You seem to be starting at methods. This is ... not particularly natural for me.
With the exception ...
@jwildeboer The human race solved numerous social and political challenges from the Dawn of Time until roughly 26 June 1945, with lesser tools. Not always, and not perfectly, but generally sufficiently (except of course where it didn't).
Again: what is/are the problems you're trying to solve? What's the state you'd like to arrive at?
Or are hammers and hammer-houses intrinsically good?
[Notice Regarding the Transfer of the mstdn.jp / mastodon.cloud Services] We have received several inquiries showing interest in a transfer following the announcement of the end of the mstdn.jp and mastodon.cloud services. As a result of subsequently evaluating the situation and making preparations, we have decided that the corresponding services will be transferred to a company in the United States on June 30. We will make an announcement regarding the name of the company that the services will be transferred to once preparations have been made. Thank you.
