"It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting our high technology from WEAPONRY to LIVINGRY."
- Buckminster Fuller (h/t Suzy Waldman)

What is impossible?

Not all that much really.

But only if we try.

Pretty awesome.

I am dismayed by one of the comments on that page:
"With all that's going wrong in the world, it's good to have a reminder, once in a while, what we, human beings, can accomplish when we're at our best."

It really saddens me that people think this way. There are so many amazing good things, and so many improvements in our world that go on all around us and we just take them for granted and expect the next thing- with no appreciation.

I can't think of any time in the past I would rather live. Why so much gloom?
