The Redesign of a Culture
It is common in our mass media to read and to hear commentators addressing the number of social problems that face us today, such as global warming, destruction of the Earth's environment, unemployment, crime, violence, poverty, hunger, and the population explosion. Yet, how often do we hear of workable plans for alleviating these social problems? It is relatively simple for people to criticize society, however it's much more difficult to identify and implement plans to resolve the problems.
Futurist, inventor, industrial designer and human-factors engineer Jacque Fresco and his associate, Roxanne Meadows, have been working diligently for many years to create comprehensive plans for solving these social ills. Using their own resources and ingenuity, they have devised a bold new approach that calls for no less than the total redesign of our culture. The Venus Project is a veritable blueprint for the genesis of a new world civilization - one based on human values and environmental reclamation.
The plans for The Venus Project offer society a broader spectrum of choices based on the scientific possibilities inherent in current technology and direct that knowledge toward a new era of peace and sustainability for all. Through the implementation of a resource-based economy, and a multitude of innovative and environmentally friendly technologies directly applied to the social system, The Venus Project proposals will dramatically reduce crime, poverty, hunger, homelessness, and many other pressing problems that are common throughout the world today.
