Paradise or Oblivion

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 (? from her album “They Have Been Watching”.

  1. Hi Jordan, i think you should check more about Fresco ie:
    ABSOLUTE PROOF of Venus Project connections to the UN & NWO elites
    or just type Jacque Fresco nwo. Look that in his visions there is too much restrictions for ordinary people and that’s only beggining.
    Lots of love.

  2. This idea all sounds nice but I don’t think it will ever happen. The idea of money will always exist because, people are still going to want to be paid for their services. Whether it be the people building all these new buildings or transportation, technology, the scientists… They are not going to do all their work for free… but then if we do not need money for food or anything because its just freely available without boarders….it just does not make sense in the long run people will start trading or bargaining and eventually that’s how money came to be in the firs place.
    Or maybe I’m just being short sighted and by the time something like this happens everyone will just be creating things and making things and doing things for nothing in return.

  3. I love seeing Spirit Science support The Venus Project. Earth is in its transition, and as far as the general population goes, they (we) need a plan, and they have one. I have been supporting the project for over a year and a half and find that it is applicable in many, many situations. Another production they made that is more in depth on the cities and Jacque himself is Future by Design, you can find it on youtube.

    1. I also wanted to mention that ive been through all of the spirit science material, and LOVE IT!!! if we can get the garden cities built, and the people living in them awakened, then the possibilities are endless!! I hope to share what i know about the venus project with everyone here, aswell as learn about what everyone has to teach about. Hoping to see a Venus Project thread in the forums!

      Be Respectful

  4. Man this is cool. Definitely the answer to an intention I had to see what the future might look like once we step off this path of self-destruction. Gives me hope for sure!
