Buckminster Fuller, one of the 20th century’s most prolific, productive and innovative thinkers, designers, and engineers, defined an objective for humanity based on his mathematical research in which all human beings on earth could survive and achieve a genuine standard of living. This was not posed as an effort by governments, but as an alliance of people recognizing not only the legitimate right of survival for everyone, but the available resources and means, mathematically, for it to be realized, by collaboration and science.
A promising number of people around the world have come together to recognize a simple truth of human survival. Wealth, a category that is more than money, but the totality of our land, food, water, energy, technology, and currency, and all the other wealth that can be defined that feeds us, is not produced by resources, as our economic systems have us imagine.
Wealth, and survival itself, are actually produced by #agreement, something humans are just not historically good at. We’ve been good at war for most of 70,000 years, and our modern economic systems are built on it. In 300 years of economic cycles, it is primarily after war, that we really expand wealth. Yet, no amount of war, nor class, cultural or political conflict, stops us, as sovereign individuals, from choosing to make #agreement our #value, even to make it a basic economic one.

"Working from a book, a conversation, and a unique social research experiment that has taken him to 22 countries, Mr. Matalon is asserting that humanity’s biggest existential threat is not climate change, tribalism, or inequality, but our inability to foster agreement with each other at the level we require to address our challenges."
"#IsThereEnough campaign, a new conversation about wealth, survival and sustainability that he claims even a 5 year old can have. His upcoming book to be released at the end of the year, suggests that we have an even greater threat to humanity than climate change, and we are about to hear what he thinks that is..."
