Best Quotes by Jeremy Rifkin (Top 4)

  1. We are entering a new phase in human history - one in which fewer and fewer workers will be needed to produce the goods and services for the global population.
  2. Generations of human beings were transformed into machines in the relentless pursuit of material wealth: We lived to work.
  3. We have come to discover what we suspect is a new political mindset emerging among a younger generation of political leaders socialized on Internet communications. Their politics are less about right versus left and more about centralized and authoritarian versus distributed and collaborative.
  4.

Lost in a sea of perpetual technological transition, modern man and woman find themselves increasingly alienated from the ecological choreography of the planet.
