"Making the World Work for Everyone" 1979
Seven presentations in seven cities were given in which Dr. Buckminster Fuller, mathematician, comprehensive designer, architect, inventor, cartographer, philosopher, poet, and global citizen, presented information on how the individual can be effective in making the world work for everyone and exchanged views with Werner Erhard.
Wanting to share some of Bucky's vision a small group from The Graduate Review met with him for an interview. "A few times in the early stages, questions were asked and his answers were apparently far afield. Until he finished his response. Then everything he'd said fit. Bucky weaves a tapestry for you and it's sometimes not seen or appreciated until the last thread is in place. It doesn't take long at all to get Bucky's greatness, his dedication to and love of humankind and his willingness to give 150% of himself to do what he knows must be done to have this planet work. As he spoke, I sensed his urgency and desire to get his vision across, to be certain that his work will be completed whether he's around or not." Read the Full Interview
Buckminster Fuller and Werner Erhard were introduced by Bucky's grandson, Jaime Snyder, who had taken the est training and felt that a relationship between the two would nurture both. That is what has happened. Werner Erhard asked Bucky to share himself with a group of est graduates and friends in September 1976, and the result was "Conversations with Buckminster Fuller," sponsored by The Werner Erhard (est) Foundation at Town Hall in New York, where Werner Erhard and Jaime were on stage with Bucky Fuller for a day. Bucky accepted Werner Erhard's invitation to engage in another day of "Conversations" with him and Jaime in San Francisco and then in Los Angeles and Hawaii. Read the Full Article
