The 4IR empties everything of meaning, particularly words. It says “sustainable” when it means ecocidal. It says “development” when it means destruction. It says “basic universal income” when it means slavery.
We need to rediscover what it means to be truly human, to cherish value over price, communal belonging over personal self-interest, honour above wealth. We need to look deep inside ourselves and search out and nurture everything that makes us noble, authentic, generous and kind.
