Jaque Fresco and the Venus Project

Jaque Fresco can best described as a visionary who had the ability to foresee the inability of our world to continue along its path of unsustainability. His idea for our future is a system based on a resource-based economy with no money. Yes, you heard correctly, the abolition of the monetary system.

At first this sounds impossible, but once one realises that most of the problems in the world are caused by a money-driven society his ideas suddenly do not seem all that crazy. The world began to "develop" towards its downward spiral the day money was invented. If the world economy continues along with its Global Ponzi Scheme one also needs little brain power to grasp that it has to collapse at some stage so we probably will have to do without money anyway at some point in the future.

His vision of future cities is based on them running on renewable energy with all the major needs for humans seen to. The idea is a place where human interaction takes priority and in this new world where there is no money we will see an end to psychosocial disorders as the money motivation will not be there, just like the crime-free days of the Native Americans and all natives around the world.

As Jaque Fresco and his believers continue to spread this word of sustainability around the world only time will tell if he was right. The point is we will probably find out in the not too distant future as the current recession shows no signs of  ever abating ...
