We need close quarters car free communities of 10K that are vastly less stratified but at the same time more diverse than what we have in in today's sprawl
We need to enable the re-formation of face-to-face society.
We need to be moving well beyond oil and well beyond conventional concepts of green.
We need to build cyber cities beyond the antiquated concepts of building that now obtain.
We need to replace our auto industry with a spaces creation industry creating modular, lego-like "rooms" in which we live and move and have our being.
We need to attach these to community wide skeletons that handle everything related to recycling, power and water.
We need to think 21st century not 20th
We need to reform work
Work is a privilege not an obligation.
We need to make education student driven and student-chosen
Gird up folks
Put your thinking caps on
We will have to build out of this one idea at a time
Beyond reliance on the automobile
Beyond moribund education
Beyond unadventurous business and unintelligent governance
Except the seed fall to the ground
It shall not rise again
