Welcome to Social Evolution.

We are creating the mutual aid societies of the future. Our mission is to liberate people and solve social problems through innovation.

Welcome To Social Evolution.

Social Evolution is a non-profit organization dedicated to liberating people and solving social problems through innovation.

Old mediating structures will soon be obsolete.

New forms of social organization will be powered by technology.

We must prepare ourselves for a more decentralized world.

We must hasten the era of self-organizing mutual aid.

Book: The Social Singularity

A Decentralist Manifesto by Max Borders

Book: The Social Singularity

In this decentralization manifesto, futurist Max Borders shows that humanity is already building systems that will “underthrow” great centers of power.

Exploring the promise of a decentralized world, Max Borders thinks we will:

  • Reorganize to collaborate and compete with AI;
  • Operate within networks of superior collective intelligence;
  • Rediscover our humanity and embrace values for an age of connection.

With lively prose, Borders takes us on a tour of modern pagan festivals, cities of the future, and radical new forms of social organization. In so doing, he examines trends likely to revolutionize the way we live and work.

Although the technological singularity fast approaches, Borders argues a parallel process of human re-organization will allow us to reap enormous benefits. The paradox? Our billion little acts of subversion will help us lead richer, healthier lives—and avoid the robot apocalypse.
