Society On Autopilot

Elevator-pitch.  One-page CV.  Messaging over conversation.  KISS.
Explains a bit, doesn't it?
Of course there's a problem with running society on autopilot - you can't adjust course as necessary when you're not paying attention.  See Europe as an example, or the US banking industry. 
The solution isn't to throw the baby out with the bathwater or to shut the whole thing down (see Canadian Immigration, CIDA, the gun registry) and blind yourself to even more of the map.  That's a one-way-ticket to disaster.
The way forward is to fill in the map, to plan collaboratively.  And yes, in a dynamic system like the global village, stagnation is not an option.
