Toronto World Futures Conference: Aquarians Meet

New Age Aquarius gnosticism technology environmentalism ecofascism Toronto futurism


On July 20-24 (1980), the World Futures Society and the Canadian Association for Futures Studies sponsored the largest futurist assembly to date.

The five-day Toronto conference was an object lesson in how some of the leading elites of the Western world have degenerated morally, philosophically, and politically.

For five days, I witnessed top energy policy planners, corporate strategists, and social theorists evangelicize for the set of values usually associated with the "Aquarian Age" elements of the counterculture. The first salvo in the Toronto conference's "Aquarian Age" barrage was fired by Stanford Research Institute futurist Willis Harman. Harman is the man whose social-psychological "Changing Images of Man" experiments in the early 1970s initiated what has today come to be known as the "Aquarian Conspiracy."  (more...)
