I have often wondered if there were people who, essentially, design the world. An example of what I mean by this would be the military stranglehold
over the patent process ('national security" and whatnot). Technology is released to a contractor for use on something the government is wanting
made public, or allowing to be made public. The German patent library that we pilfered at the end of WWII is an example of this, with patents being
reviewed, and if agreed upon, released for public use. Some stuff didn't really come to fruition.
Other examples, and more on the line of the topic here, are people who understand where they are, where they are going, and where they are want to be.
I ran across this today on Memebase:
I am unsure when this was written. And often, these types of predictions when I was a kid ended up being so far off it was ridiculous. But
this....this is 100% accurate with what we do today.
So i am curious for the two following pieces of input from my fellow ATS members:
- when did the above get printed? It looks to be 70's era, maybe early 80's. Not sure if that can be tracked down. My Google Fu is not even
close to other members here.
- How much of our current life is designed in this way? Why? Was it for purely capitalistic/economic reasons? Are we inundated with entertainment
for a reason outside of it being the side effect of our love for gadgetry? Or is our love for gadgetry being exploited?
