Rethinking the Future

IMG_4581“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” -R Buckminster Fuller

“We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living.

It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest.

The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living.

We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist.

So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors.

The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.” -R Buckminster Fuller

All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near. –Sun Tzu

‘Capitalism is a religion – it has its books, rituals, ministers, institutions. If you are a heretic you will be shamed and condemned. If you go against its rules or systems you will be imprisoned or damned. If you becomes an expert in it you will be regarded as a high priest and richly rewarded. In the religion of Capitalism everything necessary to life on earth is regarded as a monetized resource controlled by a hierarchy, and through this hierarchy it will be decided how long you live or when you die. Capitalism creates inequality. One of its most regarded idols/deities worshiped in Capitalism is money.’ atrib. Russell Brand

In 2015 more than 90% of the world practice some form of Capitalism.

What is commodity fetishism – it is the perception of the social relationships involved in production, not as relationships among people, but as economic relationships among the money and commodities exchanged in market trade. As such, commodity fetishism transforms the subjective, abstract aspects of economic value into objective, real things that people believe have intrinsic value. — Basically, when your STUFF is more important than people.
