Modeling the Future

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” – R. Buckminster Fuller

Our “existing reality” doesn’t look so great right now.

Under the current administration, the U.S. Department of Justice appears ready to sign off on three chemical industry mega-mergers that will all but guarantee an international monopoly on seeds—seeds that go hand-in-hand with massive amounts of pesticides.

Universal healthcare is off the table.

The EPA, whose power has already been undermined by corporate influence, is now teetering on the brink of extinction.

It’s no wonder that everywhere you look, you see the word "#resist."

Make no mistake—we jumped on the #resist train early. And we have every intention of riding it to the ends of the earth, if need be. But as “Bucky” said, if we want to change things, we need to “build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” 

That advice applies to our degenerative agriculture model, our degenerative healthcare system, our degenerative “growth-at-all-costs” economy, our rapidly degenerating so-called democracy. Our current models are broken. We need new models that will make the old ones obsolete. Regenerative models. Models that work for all of us, not just a few fat-cat CEOs and politicians.

We can’t change all of these models overnight. But we’ll never change them at all unless we commit, now, to making them obsolete. We're going to need your help.
