A system should ideally seek to serve a purpose and serve to provide opportunity and possibility rather than become (or remain) a constraint.
If capital isn’t serving the people, then it is not serving its appointed function.
If government isn’t serving the people, then it is not serving its appointed purpose.
If a system is not serving something other than perpetuating the system, then that system is not serving a greater purpose.
What systems are you building and what purpose are they serving? Is it serving to improve someone’s life, provide a meaningful interaction, or enable something better? If the answer to at least one of these questions isn’t a resounding “yes”, then why do it in the first place?
