About

Paradise or Oblivion is a free online documentary created by The Venus Project. Original music by Carly Paradis (www.carlyparadis.com) from her album "They Have Been Watching".

This documentary details the root causes of the systemic value disorders and detrimental symptoms caused by our current established system. This video presentation advocates a new socio-economic system, which is updated to present-day knowledge, featuring the life-long work of Social Engineer, Futurist, Inventor and Industrial Designer Jacque Fresco, which he calls a Resource-Based Economy.

The film details the need to outgrow the dated and inefficient methods of politics, law, business, or any other "establishment" notions of human affairs, and use the methods of science, combined with high technology, to provide for the needs of all the world's people. It is not based on the opinions of the political and financial elite or on illusionary so-called democracies, but on maintaining a dynamic equilibrium with the planet that could ultimately provide abundance for all people.

Paradise or Oblivion, by The Venus Project, introduces the viewer to a more appropriate value system that would be required to enable this caring and holistic approach to benefit human civilization. This alternative surpasses the need for a monetary-based, controlled, and scarcity-oriented environment, which we find ourselves in today.

*This is NOT the "major motion picture" that The Venus Project is working towards but rather is a 52 minute documentary to introduce the aims and proposals to new people.

Actually, rbe, what you should do is try to participate in the OWS forum instead of constantly pushing your agenda. I'd like to hear your opinions about some of the things we generally talk about; the shape this country's in, Wall Street malfeasance, etc. What do you think?

I've been on this forum since October discussing all types of topics. Now, I just come here whenever I have something relevant to my agenda to post.
