WHOLE EARTH WIKI 2016Edit
"We are as gods and might as well get good at it. So far, remotely done power and glory—as via government, big business, formal education, church—has succeeded to the point where gross defects obscure actual gains. In response to this dilemma and to these gains a realm of intimate, personal power is developing—power of the individual to conduct his own education, find his own inspiration, shape his own environment, and share his adventure with whoever is interested. Tools that aid this process are sought and promoted by the WHOLE EARTH [WIKI]." Whole Earth Catalog. Brand, 1969.
"The WHOLE EARTH [WIKI] functions as an evaluation and access device. With it, the unser should know better what is worth getting and where and how to do the getting.
