As we adopt remote work models, what will we enable to enjoy each other? Is everyone just for themselves? If there is no sense of community and physicality, will we ever create another Venice? Another Paris? Even a New York, an Istanbul, or a Kyoto?

Ideas, knowledge, art and what we build has made humans a civilization. We care to learn and transmit from generation to generation. Culture Matters.

In a world where nations and cultures are regressing towards their traditional roots, will cities be able to resist and remain an oasis for creativity, immigrants and risk takers?Societies that have a good social contract tend to get too comfortable and societies that are highly competitive but unequal will be more dynamichow do you make sense of this human dilemma? Soft power is aspirational is America losing it ? China will need to learn the art of soft power. Historically it is used to controlling rather than seducing.Will be West ever be able to coexist with China, with its opposite cultural and political system? For the monotheist West, it would be the equivalent of accepting a world of “two truths”. Solutions to humanity’s great challenges need to be human. This means emotional, cultural, philosophical and moral, not just technical, even if technology is used to address them.

Technology has helped us humans for millennia but hasn’t made us wiser or less emotional. Lessons and wisdom from 2000 years ago still resonate across cultures and are our true guiding principles.

Technology may change quickly but human nature changes slowly.

Global cooperation: minimalist vs maximalist approach Wealthy countries, including the West and Japan have become very resistant to change, unwilling to dream big, be courageous and take risks the silver lining is low appetite for hot conflicts. The future is more likely to be led by the developing countries of the East.

As symbolized by Istanbul being both in Europe and in Asia, Turkey is culturally conflicted between East and West. Ultimately, the choice is democracy with separation and balance of powers vs. autocracy. Or a delicate mix. Secular vs. religious.

The 60s counter culture came from a good place, against violence and war, promoting peace, love and freedom. While liberating, it also diminished community, traditional faiths and purposes, as well as respect for institutions, yet without replacing them with new beliefs beyond the worship of the individual.
