Will You Survive 12 Months Without Working … ??

I’m one of many ‘Baby Boomers’ considering retirement or already there. My father lived through the Great Depression and was in the RAAF during the WWII. He built his own house and lived in it for 60 years. Dad had one job with a state government department for his entire working career, something hard to believe today. His income was sufficient, but we were not wealthy. He retired at age 59 with good superannuation and had no real financial concerns. He lived to the age of 90.

What is your score?

Fast forward to today, and you are expected to have around six to twelve career changes, (I had six changes to date).

Now we are living in an unforeseen period of time for most people on Earth, with a global pandemic and possibly severe financial hardships to follow.

According to Sociologists Dennis Gilbert, William Thompson and Joseph Hickey roughly 15% of the population of the world are upper middle class and are dealing with the virus situation reasonably well. Grave fears are held if the virus moves into some third world countries and is not contained.

Ray Dalio, billionaire hedge fund manager and the 58th most wealthy person on Earth (according to Forbes Rich List 2019) says that America’s capitalist system is broken! He says that the wealth gap and equal opportunities are not being addressed.

He says we need to come together, and we need to engineer the coming together. He says it is necessary! Could he be right?

It should be ringing alarm bells that many of our most influential and powerful men and women all around the planet are so far behind in their thinking. Buckminster Fuller was saying this and a lot more around 70 years ago. It was obvious to ‘Bucky’ and others then that we already had the technology or the know how to provide a high standard of living for everyone on Earth, without pollution and environmental degradation. Without subjugation and corruption …

Jeff Bridges Wins Award And Shares the Trim tab Effect

Jeff Bridges spent around 2 minutes thanking a man who died nearly 40 years ago, a man considered to be one of the most important human beings of the 20th Century; an American engineer, architect, inventor and philosopher that few people have heard of, Mr R Buckminster Fuller, or ‘Bucky’ as he was fondly known. Fuller is known as an “Outlaw Designer”, a futurist, “grandfather of the Universe” and a close friend during his life of celebrities, entertainers like John Denver and many more.

Image result for free restaurant imagesHi, it’s Alex Sprunt here and I have just enjoyed another extraordinary experience and I want to share with you, but first let me ask …

Do you have a favorite restaurant you love to visit? Or do you have a favorite wine, spirit or liqueur you simply cannot or will not live without. Perhaps it is a night at the opera that you look forward to each month or the weekend away four wheel driving, fishing or maybe you’re a ‘crazy one’ and have to compete in that triathlon or half marathon.

It’s Time We Start Distributing The Wealth!

Biosphere 2

Did you know that we have had a change of CONTEXT for our lives on Earth, and we can now start distributing the wealth?

In fact the wealth is abundant!

Context is the ‘thing’ that shapes our environment, and our environment is what shapes our behavior.

An automotive factory for instance has a certain context that allows it to produce cars. It can’t produce boats or airplanes unless we change the layout and the type of machines that make up the factory, that makes up the context.

Sometime around 50 years ago the context of life on Earth changed from “there’s not enough for everyone, or there’s scarcity” to a context of “plenty for everyone, a context of abundance”.
