Industry

A Quote by Earon on academia, university, college, education, corruption, academic life, business, religion, industry, and government

Academia was created by business, religion and government as an enclosure for intelligent, altruistic people to keep them occupied and feeling important, and distracted from exposing corruption and working for change.  Fortunately, this strategy hasn't always succeeded.

A Quote by Thomas Berry on planetary, celebration, festival, life, global, purpose, earth, awakening, awareness, evolution, science, technology, industry, manufacturing, commerce, and finance

We might sometimes reflect and recall that the purpose of all our science, technology, industry, manufacturing, commerce, and finance is celebration, planetary celebration.  This is what moves the stars through the heavens and the earth through its seasons.  The final norm of judgment concerning the success or failure of our technologies is the extent to which they enable us to participate more fully in this grand festival.

In our life as a civilized person in the industrial age, we are invaded by objects; how could an object have a "force" when it no longer has individuality?

It's not to give people fish

It's not to teach them how to fish

It's to build a new and better fishing industry
