Us Now

October 25, 2009

The consumer is now the producer. With our media (YouTube, Wikipedia, Facebook) people like you and I can put our message into the internet, onto the blogosphere, ‘virtually’ everywhere, whereby we can now be fully participatory.

We “co-innovate value, and co-create value”. With a computer and a connection we reach forums, post to message boards, discuss groups and meet up’s, have conversations surrounding our specific interests – in which we find, and focus, more and more, on our commonalities. We make a community. The community was not made, and we then jumped in – that vertically built structure is obsolete.

And people are participating annonymously, and there is something about honesty to be said for that. Perhaps something to be said for the ‘wisdom of crowds’?

Why can’t not be part of this. But being we are part of it.

We can, and will, orchestrate our society. Of that there is no question. It is only how soon we become comfortable with the power we already have, and start to use it to remake our world, that hangs.

Question: Jacque Fresco

June 1, 2009

Q. Was there something specific you experienced that made you first begin thinking about alternate forms of living, or was it more of a compilation of experiences? 

A. Living through the 1929 Great Depression helped shape my social conscience. During this time, I realized the earth was still the same place, manufacturing plants were still intact, and resources were still there, but people didn’t have money to buy the products. I felt the rules of the game we play by were outmoded and damaging. This began a life-long quest resulting in the conclusions and designs presented in The Venus Project. 

Conditions of misery, suffering, war, and war profiteering were the incentive and inspiration for my work. I was also motivated by the seeming incompetence of governments, the academic world, and a lack of solutions from scientists. Many fail as generalists because of their over-specialization on limited aspects of social problems. Scientists, politicians, and academicians see problems from inside the system they’re in, which is what’s responsible for the problems in the first place. I am disappointed with those who worry about terra-forming other planets while our own is still full of war, poverty, hunger, and environmental neglect. 

Working with drug addicts, alcoholics, and so-called juvenile delinquents in New York City convinced me that instead of working with individuals, more effective methods would deal with the societal conditions that create dysfunctional behaviors in the first place.

Deadly Immunity

“I was actually stunned by what I saw,” Verstraeten told those assembled at Simpsonwood, citing the staggering number of earlier studies that indicate a link between thimerosal and speech delays, attention-deficit disorder, hyperactivity and autism.

Robert F. Kennedy of Rolling Stone writes of the affect of a preservative in vaccinations, called Thimerosal, and it’s links to health.

“The federal officials and industry representatives had assembled to discuss a disturbing new study that raised alarming questions about the safety of a host of common childhood vaccines administered to infants and young children. According to a CDC epidemiologist named Tom Verstraeten, who had analyzed the agency’s massive database containing the medical records of 100,000 children, a mercury-based preservative in the vaccines — thimerosal — appeared to be responsible for a dramatic increase in autism and a host of other neurological disorders among children.”
