And, to recommend this book as the product of a “visionary” is rather laughable. Amazing insight into the mind of a visionary. As an inventor and designer he has a brilliant mind. The best thing is that Fuller was asking deeper questions than most people venture to on their own, even if his conclus Weird book, read it because Robert Kiyosaki talks a lot about it.

The a priori history, partly deduced from daffy etymologies “”real””–as in real wealth and real estate–is from the Spanish word for royal, so “”real is what the socioeconomic power structure says it is””seems less mythopoeic than giats plain silly; and the quaintly Thirtyish side of Fuller’s thinking echoing Social Credit and General Semantics is much in evidence.

There was a problem adding your email address. Fuller’s take on the global situation is at least unique and personal. There were some interesting historical snippets here and there, but it was most of it was a somewhat incoherent rant against the corporations that control the world and how they had the means to solve ful,er problems but not the will. Would love to hear from anyone who has used any of grhnch Bucky ideas to change their lives. Ruled by few extremely selfish individuals fupler of any social conscience or perhaps not capable of understanding the consequences of their behavior – they run amok and eventually the “human experiment” on earth will have to decide whether to progress to interplanetary civilization or self destruct.

Jul 21, Josiah Redding rated it it was ok Shelves: As an ancestor of Bucky, I continue to engineer, design, and build regenerative production systems for the benefit of humanity. As short as the book is, there is a great deal on information about many different issues and gruhch the author sees them relating to one another. Bucky comes off as a techno-utopian hippy who believe that corporations were evil and the individual, empowered by technology, could save us.
In the form of a modern allegory, he traces the evolution of these multinational giants from the post-World War II military-industrial complex to the current viants of abstract legal entities known as the corporate world. Thanks a millionn and pleasee caarry onn thhe gratifying work.
