[Transformation] From Hell to Paradise

A Resource-Based Economy is nothing like any other system. They say “It’s a form of communism.” No, it’s not! Communism has warships, airplanes, bombers, poison gas, nerve gas…and all the things we have [today]. It’s nothing like any other ‘…ism’. It’s different than any culture ever tried before. Jacque Fresco, The Venus Project

All of us, deep down inside, have a longing to be reconnected with nature. That connection on a cultural, global scale will fuel our collective creative imagination and restore our world.

“Our entire system, in an economic sense, is based on restriction. Scarcity and inefficiency are the movers of money; the more there is of any resource the less you can charge for it. The more problems there are, the more opportunities there are to make money.

This reality is a social disease, for people can actually gain off the misery of others and the destruction of the environment. Efficiency, abundance and sustainability are enemies of our economic structure, for they are inverse to the mechanics required to perpetuate consumption.

This is profoundly critical to understand, for once you put this together you begin to see that the one billion people currently starving on this planet, the endless slums of the poor and all the horrors of a culture due to poverty and pravity are not natural phenomenon due to some natural human order or lack of earthly resources. They are products of the creation, perpetuation and preservation of artificial scarcity and inefficiency.”
