The Venus Project

The Venus Project

(11:15) Founder of an organisation known as The Venus Project, Jacque Fresco is a designer, philosopher of science, concept artist, educator and futurist with some very interesting ideas on how a future society that is peaceful and sustainable could work. Is this a case, as in all 'isms', of great in theory but it wouldn't work in practice? Still, plenty of food for thought. www.thevenusproject.com

9 mm, people must that the current direction society is running in is devastating the natural environment that we all depend on at an accelerating rate. Should the survival of the species become a sexy issue, I bet ideas like Jacque's will be taken quite seriously.

Latest comment: Very surprised to see the negative posts here. I found his ideas fascinating and very logically sound. Not all mind. But it is this type of thinking, and people like him who we should be listening to. A change will come, and hopefully soon. Men like Jacque can help start a better foundation to modern society. Laugh all you may, a utopia is not as hard to imagine as an all omnipotent god. Most of the world "believe" in such a fantasy.

What world is this guy living in? go sing songs with john lennon, imagine no war, imagine no money, imagine no military, imagine all the people, 7 billion of them all eating and pooping wherever they want like in india and wanting to drive their cars and have their big flatscreen TVs.

Your type of thinking is what's wrong with the world. Conditioned to accept your 'lot' without faith in humans ability to innovate and adapt. If we would have to prepare for war it would only be because people like you still think the money system is one worthwhile defending, with all the inequalities in life it creates.

Thank God for the John Lennon type "dreamers" in the world. And he's not the only one. The spoilers are those that think "money is success" regardless of how it is used. The man is right. RESOURCE-BASED. But there has not been enough suffering yet for the money system to collapse. But it will. Mark my words.
