|Title||The Stafford Beer heritage in the 21st Century|
|Description||The challenges to society at the beginning of the 21st Century demand to revisit Norbert Weiner’s|
prediction of a “worldwide state in the next century”. He made this prediction in his book “The Human Use
of Human Beings” in the early 1950s. Current information and communication technologies can be enablers of this political development. I comment in a recent paper  that Wiener did not provide detailed arguments for his prediction and it was left to Stafford Beer, the “father of management cybernetics” the detailed proposal for new organizational forms.
