  The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers

The Question (ID Number 680)...

    I have been reading the book "My Ishmael" and I was wondering if/when we save the world, after a while people might forget about this culture and start locking up their food again, starting a whole new "Mother Culture." This whole saving the world will be essentially pointless if some one messes it up again. Would we have anything to keep us from doing that again?

    ...and the response:

    Answers to big questions never seem to get forgotten. No one is ever going to believe that the earth is flat again. If we ever manage to unlock the food, I doubt that people would ever allow it to be locked up again.
