  • [Audio] In a RBE, who would get a home vs. an apartment?

     

     

    During the transition, there will be problems. The first people that get homes and apartments are the planners: the people that can plan cities, plan food production, the people that are necessary to carry us through the transition.

    That is people teaching other people about this direction, as well.

    They don't get a home, they get a place to live, and the place to live is temporary. You don't own anything in TVP. You are assigned different projects, and you live near the project. Your ability to perform in that area is what determines where you live.

    I guess this question is, what if more people want a home rather than an apartment, who determines who gets those homes?

    During the transition, your ability to perform in a given area determines where you live. You don't determine that during the transition. After the transition, things are different.

    How so?

    People learn different disciplines, and they are assigned different tasks. If your a pilot that flies commercial airliners, you fly commercial airliners.

     I think this is the question: What if there are limited amounts of homes?

    They will be rationed by the ability of the people who occupy those homes, their function in relation to society. If they can grow food, prepare mass-housing systems, (etc.) they will function. The people that are non-functional would go back to schools, study mass housing systems, or whatever is needed. People do not want the homes, they're assigned the homes by their ability to render service to society. If they can't render any particular service to society, then they are not assigned a home in a given region. If your home is near mass-production areas and your ability is in mass-production and automation, you are temporarily assigned that home in that region.

    What if some people were given an apartment, but they want the home?

    Nobody's given an apartment, they are assigned. If you don't know what that means, it means that people with the ability to function in a given area are assigned a living place.

    Today people want homes, and to be isolated more so. However, I think eventually more people would want to live in apartments, because they have more things in the apartments. They are very close to gymnasiums, restaurants right near-by, or anything else that they might want within the apartments, because you can accommodate people more so. It would be sound-proof, and they would have very good accommodations. Also, It would be more efficient to have people in apartments rather than in seperate homes. I think when the standard of living is so high in the apartments, they would probably like that more.

    Every apartment will have emergency medical services, dental services, shopping, access to resources. You don't have that in individual homes, you have to drive to the shopping center, you have to take your children to school, (etc.). In the future, what we call total-enclosure systems have schools, libraries, everything built in to the apartment, so it's more advantageous to live in an apartment. It wont be a question of "do the people want individual homes?", they won't want. They would want the maximum service they can get, and the way you get that is by following the assignment system: We assign people different areas depending on their background and their physical/mental capabilities.

    It doesn't mean they would be assigned something lesser than other people.

    No, never. If you are trying to ask whether there will be any kind of elitism, the answer is no. There will be no technical elitism, or any other kind of elitism. The people assigned projects will work harder than the average person.
