A post inspired by the man, the legend Bucky Fuller (for videos, click over to this more thorough writeup, which inspired this post).
Don’t serve a useful function in society, yet? Well, getting a 10 buck an hour job moving things from here to there may not train you to serve the greater good. From Buckminster Fuller, a quote that will take your ma n’pa a day or two to rebut:
It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors.
The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.
