A fantastic discovery for me in what you've shared.
This from Nietzsche within the wiki article really seems to sum up your observation.
"If a temple is to be erected a temple must be destroyed: that is the law – let anyone who can show me a case in which it is not fulfilled!"
And that's interesting that Creative Destruction is associated with Marx's ideology as I just reread the Communist Manifesto which I am realizing the tenor comes from such a short span of time from the feudal system. Meaning so many of the observations are coming from a point of time in the infancy of capitalism and the brutality of the landscape of the ruling class at that time. So the lens from where the ideology sprang was tinted with the harshness of the reality of the day. So I believe our current lens will require less destruction and more uncovering of what is already at our doorstep.
Yes we have an immense wealth gap and inequality still exists but at least in the developed world quality of life has improved for most since 1848. So as opposed to burning down the hay bale there are seedlings right under the layer of hay if we choose to just dig a little bit to find and nurture. (This is where technology can help - it can be the spade)
So I would say Emergent Innovation is more about creative deconstruction than creative destruction if I may because I believe progress is only going to come from collaboration with people and systems of thought we don’t agree with. To me it is not about revolution but evolution.
But this is only my take and I very much appreciate your input and take to heart what you shared.
