We NEED hyper-mutation at the level of elementary school education, and throughout K-12 schools - and ways to regulate selection from it's output.
In short, we need education & training systems to turn out citizens who are increasingly prepared to quickly adapt to evolving demands - i.e., kids able to tune their traditions to context, as fast as needed, not just argue over the absolute need for change vs tradition.
Return-on-coordination trumps all other returns, by far. It's why evolution works, and social-species dominate.
Therefore, the goal is to continually re-map growing sets of dynamic tolerance limits to dynamic context. To manage the exponentially growing inter-dependencies that come with cultural growth, students must be comfortable constantly & quickly trading SOME local options for SOME group options that produce net benefit. That means being less fixated on personal success, less wary of group change, and hence better able to pursue emerging return-on-coordination. We need to change, in order to actively select for more, not less, cultural resilience. We ALWAYS need to change how we train our kids, so they're even more resilient than we were. To do that, we need to explore & select from training options - faster.
Ok, I'll extend my original statement. RP doesn't understand fiat monetary systems, PK doesn't understand banking operations, and OUR ELECTORATES DON'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE!!!
This is a sad commentary on complex, human cultures. How much complexity can be constrained by remarkably pinheaded constraints? Every system has it's bugs. We've identified one permutation. It's not the only one that emerges entirely as a cultural phenomenon, "in the cloud" so to speak. Something has to be recursively placed in our educational system to provide future generations a bit more immunity to this form of cultural auto-immune disease.
