The purpose of my blog is to offer people a hopeful perspective on the challenge of solving society's problems. This perspective comes from my background in Systems (Design) Thinking, as pioneered by Drs. R. Buckminster Fuller, W. Edwards Deming, and Russell L. Ackoff. Their shared, key insight (and the heart of my work) is the fact that thanks to scientific advancement, it is possible to feed, clothe, house, and educate everyone on Earth. In other words, the root cause of war (the belief in scarcity of resources) can be eliminated through what Bucky Fuller called "a design science revolution". In a world of abundance, the purpose of humanity shifts from fighting over a limited pie to using of creativity to explore the frontiers of knowledge and insure the continued existence of life by expanding our presence out beyond Earth.
