Here's a Happy New Year thought: If more people could use stress-free free time for imagining and dreaming solutions and a healed world, maybe we'd really "get somewhere" -- that is, somewhere ELSE instead of deeper into endless competition, destruction, pollution, over-consumption, misery, pain.

Here's an interesting quote--

“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.”
― Richard Buckminster Fuller

[Wow, did he see the core meaning of the coming Surveillance Society, or what?]

Is it finally time to change the paradigm? Can we choose Creative Ways of Being to replace Mere Slavery to All Things Plastic/Petroleum?

Is war on the menu for 2020 elections?
