Richard Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller (/ˈfʊlər/; July 12, 1895 – July 1, 1983)[1] was an American architect, systems theorist, author, designer, inventor and futurist.

Fuller published more than 30 books, coining or popularizing terms such as “Spaceship Earth“, “Dymaxion” house/car, ephemeralization, synergetic, and “tensegrity“. He also developed numerous inventions, mainly architectural designs, and popularized the widely known geodesic dome.

To succeed in capitalism – you need to embrace stupidity.

“Dear Friend – i hope your heart gets calm – if i tell you – that success in capitalism – has not so much to do with intelligence – rather with workaholism – and if you were born or married Rockefeller or not.

It appears – that workaholism (“the meaning of life is to work and neglect all other things”) can be done better – if you stop thinking about if this system actually makes sense – or if this system produces non-sense – it does not matter.

The danger: That if we all dedicate all our time and resources on “success” within a non-sense system – we will produce even more non-sense to a point – where mankind and all life on this planet will drown in non-sense – but given enough alcohol and drugs and distraction – this terrible thought can be beard.

Buckminster Fuller was an intelligent man – similar to Adam Smith – his brain never stopped thinking – he was poor and unhappy – because he “forgot” or “ignored” “the market” – because – he probably did not see any sense or even the dangers of the “debt-money dominated “free” market system” hence his low interest and motivation to succeed in it – problem: poverty.

Sorry Mr Fuller – but a car that looks like this does not sell: (especially not during the “great depression” of 1929, so i guess success in capitalism – also depends on “who get’s the loan” and the right “timing” but also: knowing the market – knowing what customers want (Amazon and Google know you better than yourself X-D))


Nikola Tesla – despite being a Genius – died lonely and poor in a hotel room.

The market is not free – it is controlled by private banks – that create money out of thin air and unfortunately – are not so interested in the survival of mankind as a species rather with their own selfish control and power games.”

Whoever get’s the loan is allowed to play – the rest – sit still and follow orders.


I finishe with the motto of Adam’s House (at Harvard, to which Buckminster used to belong, before being expelled):

“Alteri Seculo” means “another world” (is possible).

“Serit arbores quae alteri seculo prosint.”
Caecilius Statius

He plants trees to benefit another generation.

This was the credo of John Quincy Adams, one of the first ecological activists (?) and 6th President of the United States.

“Mein lieber Freund, evtl beruhigt es Dich zu wissen, dass Erfolg im Ka(a)pitalismus – scheinbar nicht viel – mit Intelligenz zu tun hat – wohl aber mit Workoholismus.

Scheinbar geht Workoholismus besser – wenn man(n) nicht zu viel über den Sinn und Unsinn des “Systems” nachdenkt (oder den Sinn und Unsinn welches das System (re)produziert) sondern einfach “macht” und den “Markt” und “Marketing” nicht ganz vergisst.

Gefahr: Wenn das System “Unsinn” produziert – produziert man(n) natürlich im schlimmsten Fall noch mehr (klimaschädlichen/umweltschädlichen) Unsinn – wenn man im Rahmen des Systems Vollgas gibt X-D

Leider scheint aber “Erfolg”(reicher Unsinn) innerhalb des unsinnigen Systems als “echte” Arbeit anerkannt und Rechte auf Ressourcen der Gemeinschaft der Menschen zu ermöglichen – egal wie unsinnig die Arbeit – ohne Recht auf Ressourcen – Armut.”
