How Science, Engineering, Invention & Technology Can Remake the Planet

Jacque Fresco was a futurist and social engineer who was born before his time.  He developed the venus project which is a plan and method to re-allocate earth's resources for the betterment of man.  It proposes a resource based economy instead of a money based economy.  He died last year at 99 but left others to carry his legacy ... lord knows we need it!

For some strange reason, 'The Jetsons' come to mind.

Fresco didn't like the term utopia.  He only wanted to share his knowledge and to show that humanity could be far more ascendant, just and economically balanced across all nations.  Earth can be a verdant garden of Eden where machines and man work hand and hand in harmony with nature.

So the question is:  Do we want to be slaves tor soulless corporations with a robotic workforces or do we want the robotic workers working for the betterment of mankind.
