The world has never been so sight-pampering and fascinating as portrayed in The Venus Project envisioned by Jacques Fresco. Technology meets nature in its most beautiful form as humans learn how to pursuit happiness using natural resources provided by the planet. The futurist Jacques Fresco hand in hand with the Zeitgeist movement came up with the idea of creating a fantasy that offers a more optimistic and idyllic vision of our future. Those who enter this 21.5 acre Research Center located in Venus, Florida will be granted with a mesmerizing experience. The buildings and the whole atmosphere resembling an utopian fantasy mirror the unique vision of Mr. Fresco who worked as an inventor and social engineer for long years.
The Venus Project revolutionized the traditional concept of global civilization. The idea behind this mass-appealing project is a promise to banish all the threatening theories about the dark future of humankind. Futurists behind this project aim to redesign our culture and teach us how to shape our future kissing goodbye to old values.
The chief concern of The Venus Project is to eliminate the monetary system. According to these theoreticians money and the whole economic system led to extremist ideologies as fascism, socialism and communism. Social stratification is another problem that should be tackled sooner or later. The Profit-driven monetary system deprives people of a moderate or high standard of living. Innovative technology allows us to take full advantage of a resource based economy. The planet has enough resources for everyone to enjoy a limitless amount of food supplies, energy and a high class medical care. In a similar context money becomes irrelevant as technology allows us to enjoy life rather than spending precious time at the office or in factories.
Concepts as property and wealth as they are perceived nowadays will be taken to the next level and turned into individual values instead of social ones; objectives each person has to achieve through the pursuit of personal and professional accomplishments. The Venus Project is eager to grant us with a new world that promotes the integration of science and modern technology into our everyday life.
