The real structures of power have always viewed humanity as a commodity, essentially like hardware which gets replaced as needed.

Their control/management of Applied Demography has been sophisticated, precise and (ethics, intentions aside) can be considered an art and Science.
Change has been systematic, cyclic and mostly slow paced, with cycles spanning as long/longer than average lifespanw, additionally history has been warped.

So inevitably being aware of ability to control demography with such precision was extremely hard for most to comprehend.
Those with that power are far from stupid...

They've always known they needed a certain number of people at different times.

Pawns for labour and a smaller number of the "more valuable" chess pieces to maintain everything, mitigating risk, so they ultimately remain in control.

I really respect what @anthonyrose is building @seedlegals, they've worked hard to upskill founders + are leaders in EU ecosystem.

That being said their SeedFAST ASA instrument (UK version of a safe) is VERY expensive.

You can get a lawyer to do everything below for £1k + VAT.
I really think it's important for us to. Increase transparency and help founders save money (especially at the earliest stages)

Historically, theres always been a tax on founders naivety and inexperience, aided/abetted by an opaque investment process + echo chamber.

Founders >>
Let's do the maths of using @seedlegals....

1% of 500k = £5k
0.5% of 700k = £3.5k
0.2% = £2K

So on £2m raised using a SeedFAST ASA instrument you're paying = £10.5k (0.525%)

That's £9300 more than you actually need to be paying, when you can use a lawyer for £1200 all in.

I was never a fan of the pampered mentality that came into startups.

I cringed as I saw money be wasted on totally unnecessary shit like expensive offices, kitted out with artificial grass and ping pong tables.

Hiring people with sexy logos on their CV, but were often useless.
It's such a misconception that pampering people makes them work harder, or perform better.

I spent a year of my career based at one of the worlds top PE companies @ their prestigious Mayfair office.

They had it all, like literally every creature comfort you could ever think of.
PE has a dumb culture where people need to do facetime and be in the office more than they're at home, most MD's / VP's practically live at the office, with clothes there and everything.

Thing is, I saw firsthand a lot of their facetime hours are spent on Internet shopping / FB.

Great to catch up with the @NorthComBank team in #Ashington today - the #CommunityBank I helped start, with many others, in 2015 here in #Northumberland 1/ ImageImageImageImage
We started small in the #Tynedale area of #Northumberland but immediately got noticed by BBC, ITV, FT, Mail and others because here was a #bank run for people not for profit…
We could not have started without the support + help from @HexhamAbbey @bishopnorwich @DagmarKirk + most of all @JohnSentamu - see him at our launch 3/…
