What we wanna do is to eliminate the causes of the problems eliminate the processes that produce greed and bigotry and prejudice and people taking advantage of one another and elitism, eliminating the need for prisons and welfare, we've always had this problems because we've always lived within scarcity and border and monetary systems that produce scarcity if you erradicate the condition that generate what you called socially offensive behaviour it does not exist is it naturally inborn?? no it's not there is no human nature, there's human behaviour and that's always been changed throughout history you aren't born with bigotry and greed and corruption and hatred you pick that up within a society war, poverty, corruption, hunger misery, human suffering will not change in a monetary system, there'll be very little significant change is going to take the redesign of our culture our values and it has to be related to the carrying capacity of the earth not some human opinion or some politician's notions of the way the world ought to be or some religious notions of the conduct of human affairs and that's what the venus project is about the society that we are about to talk about it's a society that is free of all the old superstitions incarceration, prisons, police, cruelty and law all laws will dissapear and the professions will dissapear that are no longer valid such as stock brokers, bankers, advertising gone forever because there's no longer relevant when we understand that it's technology deviced by human ingenuity which frees humanity and increases our quality of life within realize that the most important focus we can have is on the intelligent management of the earth's resources for it is from this natural resources we gain the materials to continue our path of prosperity understanding this we did see that money fundamentally exists as a barrier to this resources virtually everything has a financial cost why do we need money to obtain this resources? because of real or assumed scarcity we don't usually pay for air and tap water because it is on such high abundance selling it would be pointless so then logically speaking, if resources and technologies applicable to creating everything in our societies such as houses, cities and transportation we are in high enough abundance there would no reason to sell anything likewise, if automation and machinery would so technologically advanced as to relieve human beings of labour there would be no reason to have a job and with this social aspects taking care of there would be no reason to have money at all so the ultimate question remains do we on earth have enough resources and technologically understanding to create a society of such abundance that everything we have now could be available without a price tag and without the need for submission through employment? yes we do we have the resources and technology to enable this at the minimum along with the ability to raise the standard of living so high that people in the future would look back at our civilisation now and gag that how primitive and immature our society was what the venus project proposes is an entirely different system that's updated to present day knowledge we've never given scientist the problem of how do you design a society which would eliminate boring and monotonous jobs there would eliminate accidents in transportation there would enable people to have a high standard of living there would eliminate poisons in our food would give us other sources of energy that are clean and efficient we can do that out there the major difference between a resource based economy and a monetary system is that a resource based economy is really concerned with people and there wellbeing where monetary system has become so distorted that the concerns of the people are really secondary, if there at all the products there are turned out are for how much money you can get if there is a problem in society and you can't earn money from solving that problem then it won't be done resource based economy is really not closed to anything that's been tried and with all our technology today we can create abundance it could be used to improve everyones lifestyle abundance all over the world if we used our technology wisely and mantain the environment it's a very different system and it's very hard to talk about because the public is not that well enough informed as to the state of the technology At present we don't have to burned fossil fuels we don't have to use anything that would contaminate the environment there are many sources of energy available Alternative energy solutions push by the establishment such as hydrogen, biomass and even nuclear are highly insufficient, dangerous and exist only to perpetuate the profit structure that industry's created when we look beyond the propaganda and self-serving solutions put forth by the energy companies we find a seemingly endless stream of clean abundant and renewable energy for generating power solar and wind energy are well known to the public but the true potential of this mediums remains unexpressed solar energy derived from the sun has such abundance that one hour of light at high noon contains more energy than what the entire world consumes in a year if we can capture one hundreth of the porcent of this energy the world would never have to use oil, gas or anything else the question then is not availability but the technology to harness it and there are many advanced mediums today which could accomplish just that if they were not hindered by the need to compete for market share with the established energy power structures then there's wind energy wind energy has long been denounced as "weak" and due to be in location driven impractical this is simply not true the U.S. department of energy admitted in 2007 that if wind was fully harvested in just three of America┬┤s 50 states It could power the entire nation and then there are the rather unknown mediums of tidal and wave power tidal power is derived from tidal in the ocean installing turbines which capture this movement generates energy In the UK, 42 sites are currently noted as available forecasting that 34% of all the UK's energy could come from tidal power alone wave power which extracts energy from the surface motions of the ocean is estimated to have a global potential of up to 80.000 therawatt/hour a year this means 50% of the entire planet energy usage could be produce from this medium alone now it is important to point out that tidal wave, solar and wind power requires virtually no preliminary energy to harness unlike coal, oil, gas, biomass, hydrogen and all the others in combination this four mediums alone if efficiently harnessed through technology could power the world forever that being said there happens to be another form of clean renewable energy which trumps them all geothermal energy utilizes whta is called "Heat mining" which through a simple process using water is able to generate massive amounts of clean energy in 2006, an MIT report on geothermal energy found that 13.000 Zjules of power are currently available in the earth with the possibility of 2.000Zjules being easily tappable with improved technology the total energy consumption of all the countries on the planet is about 0.5Zjule a year this means about 4000 years of planetary power could be harnessed in this medium alone and when we understand that the earth's heat generation is constantly renewed this energy is really limitless it could be used forever this energy sources are only a few of the clean renewable mediums available and as time goes on we will find more the grand realization is that we have total energy abundance without the need of pollution traditional conservation or in fact a price tag
