Indoor Farming

Review by Ron Miller “There is a real trend towards something called variously urban agriculture, indoor farming or vertical farming,” says Cary Mitchell, a horticulturist at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. The original idea was for skyscrapers filled with plants but was never realistic. Skyscrapers don’t come cheap. In New York City, a company […]

Ignoring the Obvious

The old adage is that we can learn from our past; that the mistakes we made earlier leave with us a lesson to not go that route next time. Well, some of us anyway, can see that is a falsity. Actually, it is not mistakes that we are concerned with today – it is repetition. […]

HEAR NO CLIMATE EVIL

Daniel Kahneman is not hopeful. “I am very sorry,” he told me, “but I am deeply pessimistic. I really see no path to success on climate change.” Kahneman won the 2002 Nobel Prize in economics for his research on the psychological biases that distort rational decision-making. One of these is “loss aversion”, which means that […]

Declining Oil Prices

Greetings to you all: I will try to be as concise as possible in spite of the monumental problems facing this planet.  First, we may be to far down the path “of no return.”  Just this morning I witnessed a conference about the declining oil prices; Venezuela sells its fuel for 9 cents a gallon for […]

Aliens – “tongue in cheek”

Have you ever wondered why it seems impossible to stop the carnage taking place in and to our environment?  I have a theory.  Aliens.  Yes, aliens are responsible.  They need our planet but it is not quite right in accommodation for their existence, but they also know that an outright invasion would ruin it for […]

TRANSITION

Herein are some random ideas about how we could counter the disruptive forces when our present method of economic operations begin to fail.  It is failing as I write, but the buffers placed earlier; unemployment compensation, welfare, food stamps, and etc. are still working to some degree keeping the eventual wolves from our doors. The […]

Congress

A POLITICIANS NIGHTMARE

One night not so long ago, an influential Congress person woke with a cold sweat.  He had dreamt, but thought he actually had in reality, spoke truly to his constituents:  “Well, I got mine, and you folks just go get yours.  I like my job and want to keep it so I have to assist […]

TECHNOCRACY INC.

North America CAN break out of this continuing cycle of despair and disruption IF we rescue our natural resources from the Price System soon enough. Technocracy is no plea for “social justice;” no scheme for a Utopian realization of the humble rights of men.  It is a necessity.  For the first time in history, as […]

Where Are The Jobs

Jobs, jobs, jobs

We have all heard from business and their caretakers the politicians, that if we can create enough jobs then everything will be better.  By some degree this would seem to make sense.  Give Mom and Dad more money to raise the kids; kick start the youngsters coming out of college with an opportunity of an […]

Technocracy is basically an accounting system

Everything we do and use requires a certain amount of energy to do the work.  That work is now performed mostly by technology thus increasingly removing people’s ability to garner incomes. Instead of loading a depository (financial intuition) with diminishing access to a monetary fund of some kind, we determine what physical resources are available […]

Technocracy Simplified

 By Technocracy Inc.   Scientific Functional Governance For North America An Abstract  “Whatever the future of Technocracy, one must fairly say that it is the only program of social and economic reconstruction which is in complete intellectual accord with the age in which we live.”     The Encyclopedia Americana Technocracy has always insisted that the type of […]

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 […]

Western World View

Excerpted from OpEdNews.com May 25, 2014 edition   “Competition, taking and hoarding are higher                                           values than cooperation, sharing and gifting.”   The western worldview says in essence, that technological progress is the highest value and that […]
