Cyclical Resource Use (C2C) and Advanced Technology

Advanced technology explicitly includes;  an as yet to be determined mix of energy sources, effective waste-management systems and sustainable housing with a low or zero environmental impact. Whilst humans would continue to manipulate our environment, as we have done since time immemorial, the manner in which we do so would be fundamentally different; based on scientific knowledge/research, long-term thinking and respect for the Earth. This draws on many of the models and thinking advocated in The Venus Project created by Jacque Fresco and Roxanne Meadows. A scientific understanding of carrying capacity of the environment and cradle to cradle (C2C) resource usage, which draws on the ideas set out in Braungart’s & McDonough’s book Cradle to Cradle: Re-making the way we make things, would be an intrinsic part of the system. Moreover, wise-intelligent use of advanced technology in the Postcapitalist paradigm absolutely and unconditionally rejects the arms trade. Moreover, it would pursue some type of rewilding both to regenerate despoiled ecosystems and to connect we humans to our Mother Planet.
