Jacque Fresco 1974

All of the marvels of science and technology, all of the electronics and mechanical wonders are just so many millions of tons of junk unless it enhances the lives of man. The reason we emphasize machines and technology is to free man to go to art centers, music centers, cultural centers and to find a meaning of their own existence and lives. Americans have been conditioned, in their kind of society to get a different kind of car next year, to buy a new television set or a tape recorder, we are radical as hell. But our political and social institutions have not changed. And this is where we are stagnating. Americas wealth is not its gold, it's not its banking institutions, these are false institutions. The entire money structured and materialistic oriented society is a false society. 10 or 15 years from now our society will go down in history as the lowest development in man. We have the brains, the know how, the technology and the feasibility to build an entirely new civilisation. Your whole banking system is utterly corrupt, your lending institutions have loused up the system. But there's nobody out there telling you what's wrong with it, so it looks OK to you. I'm not afraid of anybody, I don't work for anyone, no one can discharge me, I have no boss. The only thing that can happen to me is I can be put in prison. Well there are many books to write. In other words there are many things to be done. I am not afraid. I am afraid to live in a society we live in today. The direction we're moving in gives us 25 years for total environmental destruction. We have 7 years to mass starvation. We don't have much time. Socio cyberneering does not appeal to governments, to private enterprise. We're going to do this thing, just as the automobile phased out the stage coach. Just as television stepped in and phased out the old vaudeville and the old motion pictures. The history in technology is respecter of no society, no individual opinions, but it moves on. And we've got to be prepared to face the future. This is clean sources of power. By utilizing the natural heat of the earth, that is volcanic energy or the magma, or the molten lava under the earth, of which there are approximately 500 potentials, if we tap a mountain in Hawaii called Mount Aloha, we can get enough power to electrify the world. We can get enough power from that volcano alone. We have 500 potential volcanoes we can harness. We can use that natural heat from the volcano. No smog, no smoke, no dirt, no gases, no fuels, no oil spills and no more burning of fuels in any city to generate power. If Japan use Fujiyama, they don't need to burn oil. They don't need oil! All of that heat is sitting there! 20 million years of power. Right under the earth's surface. In fact you don't even need to use fusion power or nuclear power. And it's easy to tap. And it's clean and available. As soon as we make up our minds, to put scientists rather than on weapons, nerve gas, on harnessing the earth power, that is already here. All of these things can be built with what we know today. It would take 10 years to change the surface of the earth, to rebuilt the world into a second garden of eden. The choice lies with you. The stupidity of a nuclear arms race, the developement of weapons, trying to solve your problems politically, by electing this political party or that political party, that all politics is immersed in corruption. Let me say it again: communism, socialism, fascism, the democrats, the liberals... we want to absorb human beings. Womens lib... all organizations that believe in a better life of man, there are no Negro problems or Polish problems or Jewish problems or Greek problems or women's problems, there are human problems! So come into socio cyberneering and take your part and function. We are not concerned with the devisions of segments of society. Population control is dependent up on education. We feel, an educated population needs no control. Competition is dangerous, socially offensive, considered right and normal because you are brought up to that value system. What kind of competition is there in your body? Supposed your brain said "I'm the most important organ" and the liver said "I am, and I want to go a free enterprise system" you'd rot away in a month, if every organ of your body went out for itself. We've got to get away from this limited "I did this and I did that" and the selfcenteredness that dominates our society today. It must be a privilege to serve members of society. Not that we want reward or medals of honor, for what we do, Because it is just an honor to do it. We don't have much choice, we're going to destroy each other, or we're going to make it.
