The Zeitgeist Movement Presents This system is based on the perpetuation of one's self at the expense of others, and therefore it will never allow for a world balance and harmony. The fact is, it's time to stop praying, stop wishing and stop blindly talking about our supposed humanistic and religious ideals, and actually work to make them happen. A Resource Based Economy puts into practice everything the great religious and philosophic teachers have always talked about, in regard to humans embracing each other as their own and working together in mutual respect as a single human family. The Bible says "Thou shalt not kill", it doesn't say "some people", it says "Thou shalt not kill". Jesus chased the money changers out of the temple. They're all back in now. And people say to me "You're trying to make the world a better place. My world is up there". And I say "You forgot the Lord's prayer." Jesus said "Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven." There's no business in Heaven, no private property, no money, no banks. Do you understand? They don't even understand what they're reading. The real sad thing is, is that humanity is gonna have to be smacked around quite a bit before they really understand what the Zeitgeist Movement, a Resource Based Economy and the Venus Project - Jacque Fresco is talking about. We are driven by bio-social pressures. Meaning, that it takes problems for us to wake up and want to change things. I don't want to see humanity suffer. I don't want to see the populations start to shrink because of our lack of energy and food. I don't want to see these things happen. But I know, sadly, that a good portion is gonna happen, until people start to wake up and recognize a new paradigm that's on the horizon that we must drive forward to as fast as humanly possible. Essentially what the Venus Project proposes is that we bring all the nations together and take care of everything on earth. We pledge allegiance to the environment and all the world's people - the end of the separate nations. The end of the artificial boundaries that separate people, and the sharing of all the world's resources by all the world's people. Anything less than that would create the same problems over and over again. If few nations control most of the earth's resources, you're going to have territorial disputes. You're going to have war. You're going to have all the problems you've always had. That's why most people think it's human nature. They think man is basically greedy, and that this is why you have problems. That is not true. The economic system that we live in is a parasitic paradigm that is only gonna lead to self destruction, but people don't see that. So if you attack the economic system for what it actually is, everyone's feathers go up, everyone says "Wait a minute, this is the world we all live. We live in a profit-based, labor-for-income world, cyclical consumption, this is what we're used to, we understand we have division of classes." You know, they throw in human nature, they throw in everything that will try to make it seem like it's a part of the natural order of reality when it, in fact, is not. I just want to make it understood that the entire system that we live in is a sham. It's a false system, "falsivity" defined by the fact that it cannot be sustained. It's that simple, and we propose a Resource Based Economy. I hope everyone watching this film will go to and understand what we're doing. I hope everyone out there will understand that either we change or we die.
