Iranian progressives' support of Khomeini ended in retrogressive IslamicKKK's rise to power in the Middle East and American Futurists' support of Merilyn Ferguson, the protégé of Buckminster Fuller, ended in the rise of so-called New Age Movement, although Ferguson herself avoided using the term 'New Age'. Fuller's 'Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth' of 1969 was a harbinger of Modern Futurism whereas Ferguson's 'Aquarian Conspiracy' of 1980 was a prescription for revival of Medieval cults although with good intentions. To achieve social justice in 21st Century does not need the revival of dead-end socialism, rather needs Kurzweilian Futurism to secure abundance of Energy and Housing using Kurzweil's Law of Accelerating Returns through the private sector, accompanied with government leverage securing heathcare for the whole population as we see in Japan and UK, and by increasing reliance on computerized systems in education to make it abundant. There is no need for Bernie Sanders to make Wall Street go bankrupt to achieve social justice for the 99 percent, rather we need to work with corporations to create abundance just as computers, telecom, and smart phones have become abundant thanks to the rise of Silicon Valley, and half a century before that, the abundance of watches and similar non-intelligent electronic products in Japan showed another wave of creating abundance in the world serving social justice more than all promises of socialism that ushered in more misery, stagnation and dictatorship for humanity. Surely such a movement requires a supplement to create income for people and plans such as UBI are one of the programs to pursue seriously while creating pseudo-jobs such as forcing gas stations to use full service hiring individuals to pump the gas is not a solution for 21st Century to create income for the people. I have personally suffered for many years because of these social changes and it is because despite winner-takes-all in the current social and legal structure of all advanced nations, we do not require the winners to pay a special tax on their income to help improve the system for all, although a few individuals such as Warrem Buffett fullfil this social responsibility themselves voluntarily. In other words not only I sympathize with the efforts of Bernie Sanders but have worked on this issue for years, although I am 100 percent sure that returning to socialism will not solve the problem and will rather add to the problem the same way Iran has suffered for 41 years trying to solve its problems by seeking a solution in the obsolete schemes of Islamism of the past adding to its problems rather than creating a Utopia.
