The Prospects for Humanity by Buckminster Fuller
Buckminster Fuller was one of the most brilliant people. He was a good man who cared about all the people of the world and Earth, too. His book that bears the same title as this post is a collections of speeches he delivered without notes. He was able to speak from his mind. The speeches are not easy to read. Toward the end of the book they get a little easier. I don’t know why. As far as I am concerned this book and some of his other books are vital to our survival. They present more about how to make our lives more like a Utopia than mere survival, but he saw the coming problems we face today.
If you want to get some education that will make you feel optimistic, read this book. I can’t recommend it enough. Again, it is not easy to read. I think a lot of people will be unable to read it. Even fewer will be able to understand it. Be sure to have the internet at the ready no matter who you are. That man’s brilliance is that great.
You can buy the book at Amazon or other places.
