Summary. The main lesson from what’s written below is not that I am right and Facebook, as an instance of global platforms is wrong. The lesson is that #GlobalDebout, the ordinary citizens of the world, need to unite not to let representative democracy regulate local market failures of global platform businesses, like Facebook, but to make sure that those big monopolies be regulated by direct democracy. For example, at least the people from Dominican Republic and Spain (not just from Catalonia) must help Puerto Rico start to close the representative democracy Pandera’s Box.

This is a thought experiment that follow up to the story Un plan con grandes decisiones presentes para desmontar el endeudamiento en RD, something like “A plan with big present decisions to dismantle the debt in RD.” Of course it will be an example to reverse the escalation of debt in Spain and Puerto Rico.

That story we now add is intimately related to the debate about whether political parties primaries should be open or close. That story resulted in increased discussion, for example, of the Catalonia’s crisis and the response in the electricity sector in Puerto Rico.

The tweets conversations that follow on October 6, 2017, highlighted the key issues on the synchronicity of a new order to respond to the fragmentation of the world that became visible after the Arab Spring, the #15M and the Occupy Wall Street movements in response to the Dark Globalization. The common thread that emerged is the need for generative dialogues that include members of representative and direct democracy.

In order to execute the story Please help #USA be the #BrightGlobalization pioneer that creates the #SystemicCivilization, whose two images are repeated for convenience right after this paragraph, Puerto Rico seems to be the best to help emerged a global platform suggested in the story Can an emergent #PuertoRico energy ecosystem have the three things needed for #GlobalDebout?

The key insight from that conference is that Servant Leadership is what the citizens of the world need enable the governance of global platforms. More on this below when we deal with Facebook.

Now lets continue with Catalonia. The expert opinions No Way Back: Catalonia Referendum Opens Pandora’s Box, written by Tatyana Koval has the following introduction:

The independence referendum in Catalonia can be seen as a way of bargaining with Spain’s central government, according to Valdai Club expert Tatyana Koval. For ordinary Catalans, this referendum is one thing, while for politicians it is another. The difficult question of redistributing funds, including those from the EU, will now be discussed in a new context.

We can generalize the situation for the world over as the source of corruption that has led to the March of Folly of the Dark Globalization that open the Pandora’s Box, not the referendum. Once we accept that, we can see that ordinary citizens of the world — what I have been calling GlobalDebout need to consider the post:

Minimalists governments with fair global free deregulated markets must arrive soon. So far, that post has the following updates:

  1. Would #GlobalDebout aim #DD_SM direct democracy towards minimalists States under #Jobsism? April 2, 2016.
  2. Do voters need #Fordism transitions or #Jobsism transformations under #GlobalDebout? April 29, 2016.
  3. Do #GlobalDebout actors and experts know that “Thinking is the hardest work there is…”? May 2, 2016.
  4. We are in the right moment of opportunity for Global Debout towards a new energy market blueprint. May 6, 2016.
  5. The strong case for global systemic deregulation of the electric power industry. November 15, 2016.
  6. As the though leader of #GlobalDebout, I hereby falsify the U.S. Grid Work with 100% Renewables. April 15, 2016.

Now consider the most read article Facebook Faces a New World as Officials Rein In a Wild Web, written by Paul Mozur, Mark Scott and Mike Isaac on Sept 17, 2017, for The New York Times as to what’s happening in a world dominated by representative democracy. For example, the article says:

While Facebook said its policies in Vietnam have not changed, and it has a consistent process for governments to report illegal content, the Vietnamese government was specific. The social network, they have said, had agreed to help create a new communications channel with the government to prioritize Hanoi’s requests and remove what the regime considered inaccurate posts about senior leaders.

That may explain why the increased censorship has to Tweets that I have sent through Facebook to my followers have been deleted as spam as can be seen in the image.
