What do you think of when you contemplate the future? for Jacque Fresco this is what it looks like ... technology is ... for all and money has no relevance at 94, but it won't stop him spending the next seven months traveling the globe promoting his vision it's called the Venus Project and he says 50 million people around the globe are now involved or aware of it but of what? I caught up with Jacque and asked him if what he was promoting was quite simple utopia No, there is no such thing the reason there is no such thing.... if you design the best building you know how to design that is the best you know up to now without advances in new material the ... keep changing there is no best laptop next year it will be smaller, lighter, wider range cameras no longer use film so you can't design the best camera you can only design the best that you know up to now no utopias, no final frontiers but for you, your vision of the future it's always changing but you look at some of your designs some of your visions for the future and people say yeah it looks like you might've seen in Popular Mechanics from the 50's this is what it's going to be like in 1999 no, it's nothing like that Hollywood shows you spaceships then people using laser weapons they take the same cowboys and indians and put them in spaceships that is not the future that's men's concept of this limited society that doesn't teach you how to think and look ahead if we don't live in accordance with the nature of the Earth if we don't live in accordance with the natural resources we can't live you can't designate a population of ten million without doing a study of the resources you have and if you study we have enough resources to support so many billions of people and, if you exceed that, you are going to have starvation malnutrition, territorial disputes if you maintain a population in accordance with the carrying capacity of the Earth no opinions of Senators politics was great a hundred years ago today it's all obsolete you are talking Revolution no when society breaks down Technical Revolution but when society breaks down then they'll want to do it a different way I'm sorry about that but it seems that conditions were so abusive in some lands that they put in socialism, communism, whatever, or fascism that fits the conditions that people live under none of them are the solution all governments all through history have been corrupt you must know that people look at your concepts yes, I do and with utmost respect Jacque they would say "you are a crazy old man" I understand that, this is not unusual every move from Women's Rights to Child Labor were fought with battles all the time no new system ever came in smoothly men is the dumbest animal,
