The Electrochemical Future

The future of technological man in the early 1970’s looks bleak. Just at the moment when he has so much going for him, and when an end to compulsory work for most of the population (abundant electricity from solar or atomic sources, plus a programmed control of industrial processes) appears as a real possibility not in some remote future, but perhaps for one’s children’s children, he has developed a case of future shock. He wants to eliminate much of the science and technology which are his main weapons in dealing with the technological world to which he is now so tightly connected. The fact that this turn of mood has come upon the most technologically powerful nation, to which country so many others look for technological leadership, is a misfortune the damage from which will not be confined to the United States. The point is that the present technology, coupled to the present population, disbalances natural processes and exhausts materials.
