This is a short 40 minute documentary by The Venus Project to discuss the idea of Paradise or Oblivion. What direction will we head in the future? How can we get there? What would it take using our current technology.
Personally, i think it’s Paradise AND Oblivion. Why choose just one, when it seems more likely that both will occur simultaneously? (You still choose which you’re a part of!)
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. This documentary details the root causes of the systemic value disorders and detrimental symptoms caused by our current established system. 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.
Paradise or Oblivion, by The Venus Project, introduces the viewer to a more appropriate value system that would be required to enable this caring and holistic approach to benefit human civilization. This alternative surpasses the need for a monetary-based, controlled, and scarcity-oriented environment, which we find ourselves in today.
This is NOT the “major motion picture” that The Venus Project is working towards but rather is a short documentary to introduce the aims and proposals to new people.
This is a free online documentary created by The Venus Project. Original music by Carly Paradis (?http://www.carlyparadis.com/?) from her album “They Have Been Watching”.
