What if the game had to change?

When is it time to really understand that the game has changed?

When is it time to really understand that the game has changed? A June 3 CBC news item, entitled “Nenshi: Royalty review and NDP not causing concern on Wall Street,” gives rise to some additional thought.

The overall sense seemed to suggest that the current “political/economic game” would be able to continue; but with minor changes to the rules.

A big question might be: What would happen if the entire game had to be changed to a point where current rules and practices were irrelevant? If you were a gaming designer, the situation might be viewed as an opportunity to explore other exciting solutions.

If you are heavily invested in the current game, the first response would be to dig in the heels and do whatever it takes to maintain some semblance of “the old game.” This type of behaviour does not have an evolutionary advantage. It will be the “gamers,” with an expansive view of the future, who will be able to lead us toward that future. The others will have been selected out of the game. Get with the game!
