We will generate new conditions where people will dare to dream. Today they don't even dream. I don't know you too well, but I don't believe you drive the kind of car you want, you drive what you can afford. I don't believe you live in the kind of house you want to live in, you live in what you can afford. Maybe your house had the history of films, or whatever you're interested in. The kind of future we want to make, is that every house is designed to meet human needs. And it fulfills the widest ambitions. So, if you're an artist, or a painter, or a writer, or film collector, or anthropologist, your house will serve your interest. Why do we do that? Free by the way. All the equipment in your house would be free. We do it becausethe smarter you are, the richer the world. Every person kept from education, hurts the world. I'm not talking about conventional education. I'm sure you understand that by now. Ok that's more propaganda than education. The reason I don't speak at most universities is they depend on support from the establishment. And if I attack the establishment, who the hell's gonna support the university? The same with television and radio. The reason I'm not on most television shows is because they depend on automobile companies, the drug companies, that pay for their time on the air. So they can't be truthful; they can't be honest. Would they like to be? Perhaps they would, but they can't afford it. Some people can't afford to be decent. Do you understand what I'm saying? -Very much so. Now the world I'm talking about has no prostitution, you can't sell drugs, 'cause there's no money anymore. You can go to the access center and access anything you want. It's cheaper to give things to people than put them in prison. If it costs $50,000 a year to keep a kid in prison, he doesn't come out any better, or an adult. Isn't it cheaper to make things available to people? Take ten kids in prison, that's a lot of money. And if you had a center in your city where people can access a wristwatch, whatever they want, give it to them. That's the end of most crimes. Now there's such a thing as serial killers- different types of crimes. What we do is nip that in the bud in school. During the early stages of development is when that happens. So I want to try to make this very clear. It's very important that you listen carefully, not get angry. If you were brought up in the deep south, an uneducated region, you're going to speak with a southern accent. I don't care what nationality you were, you're going to speak with a southern accent, and you're gonna reflect the culture around you. You're gonna say, "I'm going to get me a nigger. I'm going to kick his ass in." Facial expressions, manner- all learned from the community. And they tell you we're individuals. We reflect our culture and subgroup. If you don't understand me, talk to a French man. He speaks English with a French accent. Germans use their hands a lot. So you see, go to Italy [speaking Italian]... That's all picked up from the environment. There is no Italian nature. There's no human nature. If you're brought up by an Eskimo family, or the head hunters of the Amazon, as a baby- if you never saw anything else- you'd be a head hunter. And if I said to you, "Doesn't it bother you to have ten shrunken heads in your hut? He says "Yes, my brother has twenty". So is he a bad guy? No, that's where he's coming from. If you were brought up in Nazi Germany as a baby, all you see is " Heil Hitler, Deutschland ├╝ber alles"- Germany above all. If you've seen nothing else, if you've read nothing else, "Heil Hitler". Is he bad? No, he's a victim of culture. So we don't hate anybody 'cause everybody is perfectly well-adjusted, where their coming from. The southerner that lynches the black is not a bad person, he's a person that's been brought up in a warped environment. Do you understand that? -Yes. That's why there's no prisons in the future, no police, because we maintain a growing environment in all our schools. The racial problem does not occur, 'cause all kinds of people are brought up together. But if parents go to work- "You're a Catholic, you don't play with that little Lutheran boy". Parents, as a whole, do not know how to raise children. Oh don't get mad at me. Think about what I'm saying. So, if you want to live in a world of peace, abundance, the end of war, poverty, unemployment, hunger, it'll take a resource based economy. So if you don't like a resource based economy, it may be what you project into it. There's not a group of technical people that say, "You will work in area D. You, area K." That's what they picture. They get that from Hollywood, where the robots walk over and choke people. All these movies on the future are hostile. They're nothing to do with science, or intelligent. They're made by stupid people with stupid script writers. Hacks. So I'm telling you that the future can be fantastic, fabulous and ever-exciting and interesting. Of course there'll be no tightrope walkers, nobody beating each other up, there'll be no bull fights. But people have to be educated out of it, not forced out of it. You can't outlaw religion, it'll go underground. So, what we really do, is translate all religious teachings into a way of life. So a person says, "You're trying to make the Earth a better place." A minister told me that. "You're trying to make... My kingdom is out there": But they forget that Jesus said, "Thy will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven". There's no business in Heaven, no private property, no money, none of those things. Don't you understand? Read your bible. You can then see how far man has strayed from the teachings of the wisest people that ever lived. There's no better time to make all this happen than right now. I mean, we can't say, "Oh it's gonna happen in the future, and this and that." It's like, well, if we want to see it in the future, then we have to be taking steps right now. The way I see the nature of people... Have you seen the Alex Jones rebuttal to your whole Zeitgeist thing? It was like 3 videos on YouTube. Did you get a chance to see it? -Yes. What did you think of that? Well look, first of all it might run an hour, an hour and a half, where normal people are conditioned for 30 or 40 years to a certain value system. So instead of equal time, which is stupid, if you go... If I'm given equal time to a priest in a Catholic church- one hour each- he will win. Because people are already conditioned to that point of view. So I need a month and a half to his hour. - Right. I got you. Then it would be equal time. So they don't even know how to run a debate or a discussion. So, I'm trying to tell you something. The real question you're trying to ask, "OK, all that maybe true. How do we get from here to there?" We get from here to there, the system has to break down. People have to lose confidence in the people they elected. Then they have to look for something new. But they don't know what to look for. That's why we want to make a major motion picture that shows how to get from here to there. It's too difficult for me to describe, in this short time, all the detail. But I did tell you I joined the Klan, I joined the White Citizens Council, I've met with people that believed the earth is flat, and I turned them around. Now, somebody said to me, "Do you believe in love?" I said, "What do you mean by love?" And you get all these different interpretations. So he said, "Do you love your mother?" I said, "In what area?" He didn't understand what that meant. My mother was a racist and a bigot, but she was nice to me. So I didn't love her in that area. So let's examine love. It's kind of a stupid word. Do you like everything you've ever done in your life? -Do you? - No of course not. - Ok. If you live with a duplicate of yourself, how long would you be together? You know what I'm getting at? So sometimes you love yourself, sometimes you don't. So if you get married and you live with a woman, sometimes you'll love her, sometimes you won't. Sometimes she'll love you, sometimes she won't. Meaning, act favorably toward you. Because if your behavior is very different than hers, not wrong, different, she might not like you. She may even hate you. So, so, you say what happened to love? Well, there's no such thing. It's a fluctuating thing.
