The Venus Project World Lecture Tour a walk in the park with Roxanne & Jacque - Machine takeover: "Roxanne, haven't you seen 'Terminator'? Don't you know what's gonna happen if we're going to a resource-based economy?" What is it that makes people think that way? They haven't seen anything positive in terms of machines in the future. There're really sci-fi magazines and sci-fi movies give them those values in that direction that things are... everything is negative in the future; they're gonna strangle people, they're gonna watch people, they're gonna dictate what they do, so, they just haven't heard how machines can help people in the future. When you get money out of the scenario... Like today, they really have every right to be afraid of machines 'cause when the machine comes in, they downsize people and they don't have the purchasing power, they lose their jobs, they can lose their house, they can lose their family because of it, they can't take care of them. So, it is very frightening, but in a resource-based economy, when machines come in, you lose your job but you have more access to goods and services. When the system is for the benefit of people and not for the benefit for just a few that gain from being able to produce more through machines and eliminating pain, people wages, then it's a very different scenario. Today the scapegoat are the machines. But if you tell people... The people say to you: "Well, we have too many machines, we have to reduce machines, that's the problem." But if you say to them: "Okay, I'm gonna come tomorrow and take away your telephone, your washing machine, your dishwasher, your computer,..." they say "no, no, no, no!" So they don't really understand the benefits of technology, and what they can do for them. But as I mentioned, it's really the abuse and misuse of machines in today's society. It's not the machines that are the problems.
