The Industry 4.0/X.0 is transforming the economic realities. In the past humans competed with humans and both excelled in their skills. Today human needs to compete with the machine/computer/software/artificial (general, human/super-human level) intelligence (http://people.idsia.ch/~juergen/, https://www.hlai-conf.org/, https://content.sciendo.com/view/journals/jagi/jagi-overview.xml, http://bicasociety.org/, etc., etc.) and there is more and more risk that more and more humans will loos. In the past one human should work more for providing social assistance/art grants/science grants for others, today robots and AI software can work instead of humans to provide for other humans. So, the economic landscape and hence the political landscape is changing.
And hence the political realities of classical liberal/libertarian parties (such as ALDE in European Union) must change too. Tax justice, material opportunities for education, skill development, material opportunities for exploration, experiments and innovation - all that requires to introduce some social elements into liberal policies.
And hence - as I have heard - the ALDE party/movement will change in the near future - more social libearl Macron and En Marche with collaboration with social democratic parties and social liberal parties from other European countries will form new party of transform the existing ALDE party. This party, of course, will feature the energy, autonomy, repsonsibilities, creativity, innovativeness, competion-readiness of the classical liberal movement, but this party also will feature more social stance for providing opportunities for those people who will be willing to educate themselves, to develop new skills, to take the new challenges of the developing economies, all those social elements for those who would like to grow but who don't have material options for that. (Effectively - social options for those people who would like to escape from the primitive businesses https://economics.stackexchange.com/questions/29075/emergence-of-notion-primitive-business-in-the-era-of-industry-4-0-and-globaliz)
My question is - where can I find information about the transformation of ALDE Party and European liberal movement, how can I impact them, what academic and intellectual discussions are around such transformation. I.e. any information about transforming ALDE into social-liberal party with social support for those who are willing to grow!
In May 2019, speaking at a debate leading up to the 2019 European Parliament election, ALDE President Guy Verhofstadt announced that following the election, the group intended to dissolve and form a new, centrist alliance with Emmanuel Macron's "Renaissance" list
