@leftylefty, I don’t define my goals and beliefs by what has been done, or what has not been done. I define them by the dictates of logic, and the indomitable inventive spirit of mankind. I also I’m not aware of a time in history where the bottom up approach and the top down approach coalesced. That in itself is no surprise, consider the level of science and technology necessary to accomplish, what could be considered one of man greatest achievments, engineering itself, has only been around for eighty years or less. We are an historic generation, one at cusp, of a transcendent society, or a depraved oligarchy. Never before have individuals been able to apply such advances in all areas, to the base questions, how should we live, how should we structure ourselves etc. Instead we are held in intellectual slavery, not by the shepherds, but by the other sheep. How you may ask? By being indoctrinated into the view that we at this point are the pinnacle of mankind, and that all major solution, have been thought up. Regardless of your reasoning, and personality (I consider both good), your idea only enables the current system to continue and florish, and for that reason is the most dangerous attitude of all. Here are some of my favorite quotes, for emphasis. “Let the future tell the truth, and evaluate each one according to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs; the future, for which I have really worked, is mine.” Nikola Tesla

“Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds!” Bob Marley

“A perfection of means, and confusion of aims, seems to be our main problem.” Albert Einstein

“A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice.” Thomas Paine

“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” Thomas Jefferson
