Three years ago in an article entitled 'Futurist Party Aims for What Marx Deferred to Distant Future,' the importance of creating abundance in the program of any futurist party was discussed, and prior to that, the topic was elaborated in details in a book entitled "Futurist: Humanity's Nowruz in 21st Century, New Variant to Meet Human Needs." Eight months ago, on April 17, 2020, also an important document was published entitled 'Supplement 2020 of Futurist Party Platform,' where the topic of *abundance* in a futurist party program was discussed in light of 'Kurzweilian Futurism.' And its economic foundations were further elaborated three weeks ago in another document entitled 'Supplement to *Theory of Uniqueness Value*' after 31 Years: Pricing of Postindustrial Products.' As far as technically achieving abundance, Ray Kurzweil and K. Eric Drexler had a very important debate in 2003 with Richard E. Smalley, a Nobel Laureate in chemistry, when the debate was centered on the issue of molecular assembly and the exchange was called 'Drexler-Smalley debate.' Actually *molecular manufacturing* which Eric Drexler worked on for years, is the cornerstone of creating abundance in the world and some aspects of it were discussed in 2004 in a paper entitled 'Post-Anthropocentric Production.' But an in-depth examination of Drexler-Smalley debate was done in December 2003 in an article entitled 'Is Nanotechnology Real?' and received a letter from K. Eric Drexler in January 2004. I have not heard from Eric Drexler for some time and maybe he is in the middle of deep research. But from his book Engines of Creation, he showed us how Molecular Manufacturing can be achieved as the technical foundation to create abundance which he referred to as Radical Abundance. As discussed on numerous occasions, 'Abundance is Justice.' Ray Kurzweil's assessment of the topic in a letter to me less than 3 years ago which was published at that time as an article entitled 'Ray Kurzweil's Response about Impact of Law of Accelerating Returns on Housing, Clothing and Food,' is one of the latest assessments of where we technologically stand on this topic at the present. Nonetheless I would suggest to the readers still to read the article 'Is Nanotechnology Real?' which will give you a deep understanding of foundations of abundance especially as far as molecular manufacturing is concerned.
