“The most important thing about Spaceship Earth – an instruction book didn’t come with it.”
— Bucky Fuller
Known as a “Leonardo da Vinci of the twentieth century,” engineer, designer, inventor, and futurist Dr. R. Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller had a keen awareness that we’re all in this together. Understanding that we humans don’t have a clue about how to operate our fragile Spaceship Earth, Buckminster provided insightful design science solutions to our most challenging issues, including war, overpopulation, housing, increasing inflation, health care, the energy crisis, and much more. For all its genius, Fuller’s legacy has yet to be fully discovered. The world needs to hear Buckminster’s voice as it calls upon each of us to shift our intellectual and technological resources from creating weaponry to creating livingry.
We need more people to think like Bucky: first look at the universe and the principles to which nature conforms, then design a "world that works for everyone."Published 4 months ago by Jason K. Auer
