Thanks a lot for your answer.
I let some time pass. And wait for more answers.
Just some thoughts now under your text Hellekin (I'm very glad we met 
once in Toulouse) :

Cynism won't save us either. ;D

both following pages are different:
the first one fr. is more complete about the current projects.

of course the main problem is MONEY.

Imagine a far future... where phones are all out of order because of 
lack of base components. Even in big cities at least one "massive 
undestruclible computer" should exist, independantly.

SPOF=Single point of failure. OK.
Of course interconnexions have to be in mesh topology to avoir SPOFs.
The buildings you are talking about are the exact oposite of what is 
needed world wide.

It's about our survival and resilient-ness for optimisation of our survival.
Spreading knowledge is the key to best decisions as "The Wisdom of 
crowds" book and author explains.
So. we're obviously doing it but biased infos and bad voting system, 
divided by frontiers.

OK. no time to read this now.

But I add as a pure comment : Wikidebats.org lacks of voting system by 
argument and a status= "accepted by the world" or "NOT accepted by the 

Wikidebates is not a site that collects the opinions of internet users 
on a given topic of debate displaying percentages of opinions for and 

Because the merit of an opinion doesn’t depend on the number of people 
who agree with it. We can sometimes be right despite what the majority 
"Eat meat is good or not ?" = still not clear.

and WHY is there IRL voting systems so ?

I'll maybe read about that. But I can't change my 4th point because of 
this answer.

No thanks, too powerfull! Meditation is again imho, the best approved 
thing to do then decisions must be concretized no? The way you find new 
ideas is even not so important as long as it works.

WOOOOW relax. where did you read that I want to force anyone ?
Nop I won't STFU. It's exactly the goal of my post.
Did you listen to Aurelien Barrau's interview ? He talks about freedom 
and the problem of lacking of autority if I can use this expression...
"ze masses" you are obviously mocking me. No problem.

Do you understand that we have to stop thinking the way we do ?
Stop telling me what to read or think. Where are your solutions then ?
