A Conversation with Jacque Fresco

Creig Dikerson interviews Jacque Fresco, asking him important questions such as why he believes we have perpetual wars and what solutions The Venus Project have to offer resolving some of these problems. Jacque answered questions such as what the differenceses are between a Monetary Based Economy and a Resource Based Economy.

“In a Monetary Based Economy we ask, how much will it cost, but in fact we should ask, do we have enough resources?”

If we want to bring an end to war, poverty or crime, we will have to educate people that all the resources is a common heritage to all the worlds people. In order to transition to such a system we will have to educate people on what the advantages will be to each individual living in a resource based economy. The Venus Project is currently working on a motion picture that will help spread the idea of a Resource Based Economy.

    This is one of the best interviews with Jacque I have seen so far. It’s really informative, and with an interviewer that is asking direct questions, it is really easy to understand.

    Wonderful interview.I really like the Venus project and what it encompases. To me it feels right and balanced. I can see how it will free human beings to persue interests that will allow them to become all that they can become and restore the balance of all living things on this planet. The question is how do you free the minds of people who have become conditioned and accustomed to the prevalent primitive monetary and social systems. Also those in power will never relinquish what thay have attained. It doesn’t take a scientist to see that there is something very wrong with the current framework and parameters of society. It is as you say, quite evident in the insane things that we endorse and partake in i.e. wars,politics, crime, poverty, Taxes, The relentless onslaught of the environment by human activities and even the slaughter of animals to name but a few. Earths resources belong to everyone without reserve since It was not designed by any living being, thus no one person or group has the right to claim exclusive ownership of any resources, country or taxes, surely this should be evident to any sane person.I fully agree with your concepts. Only when we learn to cooperate conscienteously with one another and live in harmony with nature, can we truly apreciate the value/purpose of life, and our place on this planet and beyond and to evolve to our highest purpose. On a conscious level there is very little value in most of the current economic and social activities we partake in, in any case. The Venus project in soo many ways…………is such a magnificent goal to aspire to.

      I agree and the only way this is going to happen is if a majority of a generation support this. I do to the fullest i possibly can and only wish I will see it in my lifetime.

      “All resources should be common heritage to everyone on earth”. This concept is so simple, so powerful, and beautiful at the same time. The Venus Project, if analyzed in a fully implemented state, would undoubtedly lead to incredible levels of human evolvement and progress which are difficult to even imagine. But considering how far off we are today, I believe a transition to such a system will be very slow and gradual. Anyone could think of 100 reasons why this would not reach fruition, yet if the vast majority of people were committed to approaching TVP, or at least some resemblance of it, who could argue that it would not produce a much greater benefit to humankind in comparison to our current systems of governance? Probably just the 0.5 – 1% currently in power today, the same ones who would or will do everything in their power to prevent it.

    No Police, No jails. How would this be regulated I wonder?
    It seems chaotic to me. Such is human nature that if the opportunities present themselves we will surely do the wrong thing. If we are given everything we will surely not be satisfied, we will want more…
    So many reasons why this would never get started, where to start…

      Human nature is not chaotic don’t get me wrong there are crazy people out there but most people break the law to eat or feed there family. Humans are only chaotic now because of the way we are raised in a world of war and poverty.

      Most people wouldn’t automatically choose to do the wrong thing in a world like this. They wouldn’t need to. Everyone will be willing to help everyone because they know if they are the person in need people will be there for them as well. And for the misfits that just dont realize this they will most likely be shunned by the rest of the people and that in itself is punishment enough.

    I totally agree. It is the system in which we are brought up in that breads chaos, greed, hate, violence etc. People deep down really just want to interact with others and have their needs met. If everyone’s needs are met, those behaviors would go the way of the dodo

    Jacque Fresco knows that it is unlikely that the world will adopt a Resource Based Economy during his life time, but he continues to promote the project nonetheless. Such selflessness is examplary, and we should all do the same. Even those who feel threatened by a move away from a free market system, will eventually come around when they realise that they won’t lose anything at all, but gain a lot!
