A Rocket

If you take all the machinery in the world and dump it in the ocean, within months more than half of all humanity will die and within another six months they’d almost all be gone; if you took all the politicians in the world, put them in a rocket, and sent them to the moon, everyone would get along fine.      

-- Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983), American philosopher and systems theorist, Norie Huddle interview (1981)
