Roughly half of world comprises four by 1 billion: girls, young women. mothers, grandmoms- HYPOTHESIS 2020s economistamerica.com needs now to celebrate freedom of young metoo lives matter. Try to stay out of the way of Men's supreme triad Donald , Vladamir, Yong. Maths at Codesmeta.com.Dad, The Economist's Norman Macrae would have been 100 in 2023 (see below Glasgow celebration MES). Da'ds first trip to USA: 1951 year secondemnt by The Economist. He met Von Neumann: they agreed greatest sccopp journalists would ever mediate - what GOOD will peoples do with 100 times more tech every decade : 1930s to 2020s. GOD measnt a lot to both men- Von Neumann had less than 6 years left to deliver good tech legacy from the Goats of maths (including Einstein, Turing); these immigramnts had aminly been forced to work on the bad of nucleasr weapons; my dad had spent his last dayas as a teen in bomber command naviagting airplanes our of Burma; as well as survival his good fortune mapsd of the old woirld's tri-contiment in his head; notably the indo pacific whose coastline three quarters of humans depended on for world trade but which particularly britain had enginee4rd to enrich the west and trap asians in poverty- still with 100 times more good tech to go round - could everyone win-win; for example webbing life critical knowhow locally multiplies value in use unlike consuming up things. HOW DID DAD FOLLOW UP Neuman's Gift. He chered on twin AI Labs facing pacific out of stanford (eg see 10th birthday celebration of place branded silicon valley) and facing atlantic out of MIT. His bio of V neuman has been published in American and japanese. He wrote over 2000 anonymous leaders for The Economist and aged 39 was permitted one signed survey a year. You can see ost of tehse at tecahforsdgs.com- what did he write about? In the 1960s countries whose peoples had worried him most -starting with the Jpanese he had bomber consider Jpana 1962 (Russia 1963, latin Am 1964 , Algeria & S SAfrica; he concluded 1960s interviwing how dismally different Nixon's economit admin had been from jfk - the least national leader to celebartae with youyth 100 times more (moon race, mapping worldwide interdependence).Ironically Neumann's computational gift was sperading a macroeconomic numbers man whose systems compounded opposite of sustainability. Rather than argue with american academai- dad rebranded his purpose as future historian and entrepreneurial revolutionary. Still the main question search through 70s and up to 83 wgat good 100 times more.

POP goes americas4 dramatic years in reality and image

 in 1972 dad The Economist's  norman macrae wrote first of his future history of entrepreneurial revolution series in the economist - many now value as pivotal to industrial revolution 4 -

1968-1972 saw 4 extraordinary years in terms of continent americas impact on the world as its spins millennials today  -adapting one of de bono's creativity frameworks, we recommend youth code these historic tipping points as
U-Unsustainable
S- Sustainable
A -Actively (in play)

1S Sutstainable was way south americas led by Peru/Columbia came up with a new search for hope = they called this Preferential Option Poor (POP)  for youth of any goodwill faith, and liberation theology for the branch of Catholics that trace their cultural values back to Francis (Brotherhoods) and Clares (sisterhoods) of Assisi circa 1210. Recall that Catholocism came to south and central america from old world colonists primarily spain and portugal- so it was high time for southern hemisphere to choose its own future meaning. And POP can be recommended to every child who starts to be ready to explore society and love thy neighbor

Crucially this southern hemisphere movement demanded from the richest a reframing of worldwide aid . How about celebrating accompaniment with the poor instead of top down politicing or preaching

POP can apply to how a missionary nurtures faith, and diversely to how love of the poorest sustains communities wherever professionals live their service to the limit by :
1 living with the poor and adapting their professsional skills to community service and empowerment
2 observing system traps chaining the poor beyond any singular professional skill and thence collaboratively  linking together all professions that may be bottom-up needed to transform the system
3 believing its a sin (or at least not fitting of leadership reponsibility) to fail to use any advance in modern technology as a priority liberation app for and with the poorest

The clearest professional app of POP was started by the anthropolgist Paul Farmer in 1982 and became partners in health with jim kim and others in H&H (twinning Harvard and Haiti). All of the values of this medics network are anchored in the 1968 origins as Paul explains in this video

2S The same culture was to be adopted by the Muslim development world starting in 1972 with the foundation of BRAC where sir fazle abed credits Paulo Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed- the leading text of applying POP to education or training. Today BRAC is the world's largest NGO as well as the one that most value POP with special emphasis on women and girls. It has at least 7 practical wings- with its health practices frequently swapping knowhow with PIH. Indeed if you attended the 20th Open Society celebrations of Gorbachev and Soros in Budapest in 2013, you would have found celebrations of both Sir Fazle Abed and Paul Farmer

1U the US decade 1963-1972 was extraordinary
assasinations of 2 kennedies and king
end of segregation, war, arms races and peace movements
moon race, innovation of satellllites and silicon chips

but one arguably the longest exponential impact was american elders turned against investing in student graduates- witness how Nixon called the slaying of students at Kent State University a consequence of youth behaving as bums, and was surprisingly re-elected - whilst there was initial public outcry to the bum labeling, elders in america had turned neurotic instead of entrepreneurially joyous- see The Economists Neurotic Trillionaire -legacy starting up America's 3rd\century. From this date the idea of putting university students in ever greater debt, and the end of the university as a pro-youth public partnership is clearly evident- as is the end of USA being a leader that worldwide youth can trust to sustainability

A1 so what are we to make of POP songs like Lennon's Imagine in 1971
over the next 45 yerars pop stars became ever more costly as well as famous; youth came to celebrate anything but real heroes with advertisers greenwashing those who locally made the greatest innovations in sustainability and jobs creating learning; and yet if we could design a university of stars in such a way that the inaugural lectures were inspired by eg Kim and Farmer (and offereed on open elarning channels across 4 hemipheres of our planet) maybe POP realty and image could twin around millennials sustainability in time to heed UN's last call
