The Venus Project – Global Shared on Google+ · 6 months ago

This documentary details the root causes of the systemic value disorders and detrimental symptoms caused by our current established system. This video presentation advocates a new socio-economic system, which is updated to present-day knowledge, featuring the life-long work of Social Engineer, Futurist, Inventor and Industrial Designer Jacque Fresco, which he calls a Resource-Based Economy. The film details the need to outgrow the dated and inefficient methods of politics, law, business, or any other “establishment” notions of human affairs, and use the methods of science, combined with high technology, to provide for the needs of all the world’s people. It is not based on the opinions of the political and financial elite or on illusionary so-called democracies, but on maintaining a dynamic equilibrium with the planet that could ultimately provide abundance for all people.


  1. What would it take to completely alter the present economy and replace it with one reasonably based on the common sharing of resources? Will it take global disaster, Star Trek computerization, or can we elect people with vision enough to change this broken system? I doubt that we want to tear down ancient heritage sites in cities to rebuild them and could never get anyone to do that, so a new economy based on sharing resources would have to have at least a partial inclusion of the present economy, as jobs and and infrastructure do not come free. There is much unrealistic idealism in these proposals.
