Today we have access to highly advanced technologies. But our social and economic system has not kept up with our technological capabilities that could easily create a world of abundance, free of servitude and debt.
Earth is abundant with plentiful resources. Our practice of rationing resources through monetary control is no longer relevant and is counter-productive to our survival.
Check out this video to see just how advanced we are and also how our own creation (money) is keeping us from progression.
It wouldn’t be fair of us not to acknowledge the improvements we achieved due to the existence of a monetary system (made old trading easier) but as always it is now time to move on. We don’t need to have people working to create food, clothes and other items needed to survive. We can already produce all of that as seen in above video with the help of robots, machines and software programs. Humans don’t need money any more because we have the means to move on towards a more advanced way of working: working towards continuous development of our planet.
Among a series of thinkers, futurists, architects, environmentalists and scientists out there, one of them stands out by having made his life’s work a remarkable alternative to our current corruptible system – Jacque Fresco. He designed a whole new system based on a completely new set of values focused on people and the environment.
He determined root causes for our world’s problems and came up with smart solutions that keep up with today’s technology.
He has shown us through his project that we can reach the highest standard of living for all human beings on earth while restoring, preserving and enriching the environment around us by use of science, technology and also maximum efficiency in all aspects.
The Venus Project is an organization that proposes a feasible plan of action for social change, one that works towards a peaceful and sustainable global civilization. It outlines an alternative to strive toward where human rights are no longer paper proclamations but a way of life.
They propose a fresh, holistic approach – one that is dedicated to human and environmental concerns. It is an attainable vision of a bright and better future, one that is appropriate to the times in which we live, and both practical and feasible for a positive future for all the world’s people.
They advocate an alternative vision unlike any social system that has gone before. Our conclusions are based on years of study and experimental research by many people from various scientific disciplines.
Calling for a straightforward approach to the redesign of a culture, in which the age-old inadequacies of war, poverty, hunger, debt, environmental degradation and unnecessary human suffering are viewed not only as avoidable, but totally unacceptable.
The Venus Project is a veritable blueprint for the genesis of a new world civilization, one that is based on human concern and environmental reclamation. One fundamental premise is that we work towards having all of the Earth’s resources as the common heritage of all the world’s people. Anything less will simply result in a continuation of the same catalogue of problems inherent in the present system.
Experience tells us that human behaviour can be directed, either toward constructive or destructive activity. This is what The Venus Project is all about – directing our technology and resources toward the positive, for the maximum benefit of people and planet, and seeking out new ways of thinking and living that emphasize and celebrate the vast potential of the human spirit. We have the tools at hand to design and build a future that is worthy of the human potential.
The Venus Project presents a bold, new direction for humanity that entails nothing less than the total redesign of our culture. Our proposition is not an attempt to predict what will be done, only what could be done. The responsibility for our future is in our hands, and depends on the decisions that we make today. The greatest resource that is available today is our own ingenuity.
