  The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers

The Question (ID Number 159)...

    I am amazed to find that you choose to use the industrial revolution as a model for building a new way of living. Why? Why do you find it necessary or useful to compare the changes we are seeking to the changes that occurred during the industrial revolution?

    ...and the response:

    Most readers seem to understand from the context that I'm not recommending the goals of the industrial revolution, I'm recommending the creative process that made it the most successful movement in human history. The industrial revolution released a torrent of human creativity. If we're going to save the world, we need to release a torrent of human creativity of our own---and that's what vision is all about.
