Governments and policymakers must adapt their methods to a world that is always evolving. In recent years, waves of human consciousness have caused a change in the way governments and policymakers think and act. This shift is being fueled by several developments, including technological progress, societal shifts, and a heightened consciousness of international concerns.
The growth of the “green” movement illustrates this shift in perspective. The number of people worried about global warming and other environmental issues has skyrocketed in the past decade. Because of this, environmental policy has undergone significant change. The likelihood of governments enacting policies like renewable energy initiatives and carbon taxes that promote sustainability and reduce emissions has increased.
Awareness of social issues like poverty and inequality is another example of a shift in consciousness. As a result, people are paying more attention to social justice and demanding that their governments do more to combat inequality. Minimum wage laws and expanded educational opportunities are two examples of how governments are more likely to enact policies that promote economic equality.
Last but not least, the “sharing economy’s” meteoric rise has greatly influenced official policy and decision-making. As a result, policymakers have been putting more thought into encouraging technological innovation and new business formation. Governments are more likely to enact pro-sharing economy policies like startup tax breaks and consumer protection laws.
These are just some of the ways in which human consciousness is influencing political and governmental decisions. Governments and policymakers will adapt their methods as our knowledge of the world grows more complex. In order to make sure their policies are in line with the current state of human consciousness, governments and policy makers need to keep up with these shifts.
