This paper was delivered at a symposium on Global Systems Dynamics by The School of Medicine, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia, 17-19 June 1969. The conference was organized so that respondents discussed each paper before the open question period. The author is responding to a paper on [Cybernetics and the Management of Large] [Systems], by Dr. H. K. Hughes of Indiana State University. Dr. Hughes' paper concerns the design of a new social order, a "cybernetics culture." The social philosophy of cybernetics culture is neotechnocracy; that is rational, controlled, technological, and using energy for script. In response to this, the author argues for a way for humans living within a technological society to maintain the upper hand over the machine and over the organization. 11 pp.
