It's odd to me, how social media has become such a HUGE part of life lately. It's as if everyone wants to be a part of some community and share their identity with others in that group.
What's strange for me, though, is the concept that while people are willing to share their personal / private lives within their social community, no one is making the leap to create social workplaces. By that I don't mean socially connected workplaces, because you know every profiteer on the planet is trying to get socially connected so they can make money off of it.
What I am referring to ... is why there aren't more socially OWNED businesses. If we were truly attempting to become socially connected, wouldn't we also try and step into socially owned workplaces? I don't mean socialist ... as in government owned. But I mean socially owned. As in, a group of people would think of partnering together to create a company that they could run together. They would pool their money to buy supplies, equipment, and the things to make the business work. And they would all share in the income and profitability of the business.
This is what I have been expecting to see, especially the more I see popularity of social media. But, so far, I'm not seeing very much of the idea of social ownership of businesses. I am hoping and praying the concept will start catching on. But, it seems, that as far as business and income goes, the idea of 'SOCIAL' ownership may be too foreign to a bunch of independent Americans.
That's too bad! Personally, it would make me extremely excited to bring my skills and strengths to a group of like-minded people so we could help ourselves grow, rather than helping a bunch of 'fat cats' continue getting overweight.
For an example of what I'm talking about ... check out the documentary by Michael Moore - "Capitalism, a Love Story". Personally, I'm not a fan of his movies. But, in this particular show, he interviews several people at a bread company who co-own the business. That is what I am expecting to start seeing from our up-and-coming, socially connected generation.
