Barcelona is the place were human interaction is rooted in its DNA. There is no city where you can connect with any person about whatever subject at any time . The value of the slow communication and the rockbottom tradition of the conversation makes this place (and the rest of Catalunya ) the strongest launching pad for a new renaissance of humanity. The slowness was a cause of the “retraso” in innovation of Barcelona, it is now the lucky situation that they preserved the secret of person to person connection, the secret of a good life which is basically “having a perfect day”. The “burn out” cities in the northern part of Europe cannot imagine a world of good life , their inner selves are worn out by efficiency and maximal utilitarianism. The — formerly known as — soul is till alive in Barcelona, so I feel so happy with the appeal Mason does to the community of Barcelona: they can receive this appeal. It has to start in the best possible place, let´s do it in Barcelona. So we will sing “If you are going to Barcelona…..”. Come here to dream the new society. We of Socratic design are fighting to beat the Silicon valley doctrine with a human philosophy, possible with the socratic design approach. Thanks for this wonderful perspective Paul.
