Serving 100% of all humanity -

Bucky Fuller - genius designer, visionary, futurist, pragmatist...

In 1963 he wrote in his book "Ideas and Integrities"

"The entire world's industrial resources are now preoccupied in serving only 44 per cent of humanity with the advancing standards of living exclusively provided by the world's progressively enlarging and integrating industrial networks. Making the world's totally available resources serve one hundred percent of an exploding population may only be accomplished by a boldly accelerated design evolution which adequately increases present over-all performance per units of invested resources. This is a task of radical technical innovation rather than political rationalization. It is a task that can only be accomplished by the world's architects, inventors and scientist-artists."

Let's get down to it.
