In this episode, Scott is joined in the Palmerston North studio by Liam Anderson - Head Developer for the New Zealand Institute of Resource Based Economics and NZ 2017 Election RBE/Money Free Party candidate for the West Coast-Tasman electorate.

They discuss the need for "politics" to move from Crisis to CRIST-list: the non-negotiable technical Operating Parameters we are all now collectively facing as we move forward together and install the new emerging social model.

Also discussed is the social imperative for us all to bridge our differences; the large number of global organisations actively working to install this replacement planetary operating system; our common project sanity in the broad context of truly intelligent Earth/habitat management; and the social imperative to apply this new life-grounded global logic to the local level everywhere in order to ensure we create and reinforce positive public health at the social level of life-organisation.

If machines produce everything we need, the outcome will depend on how things are distributed. Everyone can enjoy a life of luxurious leisure if the machine-produced wealth is shared, or most people can end up miserably poor if the machine-owners successfully lobby against wealth redistribution. So far, the trend seems to be toward the second option, with technology driving ever-increasing inequality.
