The Conversion of the American Dream by Tom Atlee – 1990

The American Dream is a vision of individual and family happiness and security based on the ability to have and consume more of everything.

Physics fun

By Ryan Beckler on Oct 08, 2015 at 10:37 AM Sound is already pretty neat. It helps us communicate, and the sound of music – however crappy – get us through all of those painful high school breakups.

Solar Paneled Roadways

Author: George Wright    The video presented here is a good example of Technocracy’s conviction of “unfettered” or unrestrained innovation.   Our existing “for profit” systems will only allow innovation if it fits into the already established profit systems.  The energy producing companies using fossil fuels for example, have fought tooth and nail to limit any […]
