After WWII there was at that time an 'awakening' of the culture... it was called the 'Beat Generation'
beatniks and existentialists abounded, free thought, unshackeled from the corporate/industrial/military/political
machinery... it either failed or went underground enough to mutate into the Free Love, Hippy generation,
of the 1960s
any future 'awakening' is not really the progress of ideal thought... it is only the mutual understanding that comes about by having homogenized
thought processes...pastuerized through the number wireless devices we exchange information on in prolific data streams... facebook & twitters are not
knowledge or uplifting exchange...it is more like the lowest common denominator...
don't deceive yourself that we are transcending our baser mindsets
a decade or more ago, there was a comparable model to the one you propose in the OP...
it was called Positive Technology
or Posi-Tech...this was way before the current paradigm
coined the phrase 'Green Technology/Energy
and in the narrative, this Posi-Tech culture turned out to be just another form of Dystopia...
much like i feel is the destiny of your vision...because the monied & powerful manipulaters will
sooner-than-later control your ideal model of progress.
yea, 2011...brings us another step closer/nearer
