The ability or a talent to foresee the future is a very valuable trait, especially for an investor.  Few people possess this gift and Vladimir Okhotnikov is one of those lucky ones who can discern the link between the past and the future, and act accordingly. Vladimir keenly observes trends and navigates with confidence even when the future seems elusive. The crisis occurs when past experience fails to provide clear pathways forward.

Envisioning the future is often a blend of fantasy and goal-setting. Typically, people have optimistic aspirations about the future. They craft images of the future that align with these aspirations. In case, their visions are based on misconceptions about the reality, then they may be distorted.

Reflecting on the past two or three decades, it becomes apparent how challenging it is to anticipate future developments. We have witnessed immense transformations even in this short timeframe.

Vladimir Okhotnikov cautions against the dangers of distorted perceptions and consequences that follow

The author analyzes illusions prevalent in Western society. For this, he resorts to Francis Fukuyama’s work “The End of History and the Last Man.” He draws attention to Fukuyama’s bold proclamation of liberal democracy as the ultimate societal structure, which suggests it shouldn’t progress further. Okhotnikov challenges this narrative. In his opinion, Fukuyama’s vision was founded on a flawed interpretation of present realities.

The author emphasizes the risks associated with crafting illusions about the future based on distorted perception of the present. However, the expert challenges this narrative. When flawed theories infiltrate society, adverse consequences are inevitable. Fukuyama’s vision was founded on a flawed interpretation of present realities. His portrayal of liberal democracy as the pinnacle of societal development was overly simplistic. It failed to acknowledge the system’s inherent shortcomings. Citizens were offered personal freedoms and material prosperity, but this came at the expense of true democratic governance. In this way, power was concentrated in the hands of elite factions.

Also, Okhotnikov warns against the peril of self-glorification. He refers to historical collapses such as the Soviet Union in 1991. By examining Fukuyama’s vision, the author prompts us to question why society continues to preserve and spread flawed paradigms, despite the lessons of history.

Decentralization in response to global financial crisis

The article also discusses the growing public debt crisis in the United States and its implications for global finance. The author highlights the unsustainable nature of the US debt. It has surpassed GDP growth and shows no signs of reduction.

Bitcoin emerged as a response to the flaws in the traditional financial system. Blockchain-based tokens are operated on the principle of decentralization and transparency. It attracts most people but at the same time it scares the traditional monetary system. Cryptocurrencies are increasingly subject to regulation and control by traditional financial authorities.

The author doubts that decentralization through blockchain technology could offer a solution to the systemic issues present in centralized governance and finance. However, the effect of its full adoption and implementation may only happen after a global crisis occurs. Then it will reshape societal values and power structures.
