The Car Free Road To National Prosperity - 1


 Car free does not mean no cars. 

It means the age of the automobile is ending 

along with the age of oil.

 National prosperity will return. 

Computer technology will produce 

a brand new world. 

3D printing can create the components of 

an entirely new method of construction.  

Lego-like surfaces can be mass-produced by 3D printers 

and sent anywhere. 

The parts of a matrix which will hold enough surfaces 

to create spaces for a whole community 

can be likewise created and sent anywhere.

 The evolved 3D industry will dwarf the car industry. 

The lure of incredible wealth will tell the tale. 

And, in the bargain, the plutocrats 

will finally understand that a society 

where everyone is fulfilled is the wave of the future.

 Cars will survive, yes, but they will no longer 

determine how we live.  

They will no longer dictate design. 

They will no longer be what’s sexy. 

The world moves on.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …
