“Dare to be naïve” • R. BUCKMINSTER FULLER

You never change things by fighting the existing realityTo change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete. 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 livingHumans beings always do the most intelligent thingafter they’ve tried every stupid alternative and none of them have worked”
