“Money often costs too much.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Today, we begin with an astute observation from the wildly strange mind of Buckminster (“Bucky”) Fuller…
“Take away the energy-distributing networks and the industrial machinery from America, Russia, and all the world’s industrialized countries, and within six months more than two billion swiftly and painfully deteriorating people will starve to death.”
That’s pretty obvious.
What’s not so obvious, however, but just as true, says Bucky:
“Take away all the world’s politicians, all the ideologies and their professional protagonists from those same countries, and send them off on a rocket trip around the sun and leave all the countries their present energy networks, industrial machinery, routine production and distribution personnel, and no more humans will starve nor be afflicted in health than at present.”
