The Venus Project: Utopia Or Future of Our Сivilization?

Perhaps you have already heard something about Jacque Fresco and The Venus Project. But believe, it’s even more huge than you think. Nexter explains everything you need to know about The Venus Project and its creators.

Jacque Fresco

Jacque Fresco is the ambitious futurist who together with Roxanne Meadows created the Venus Project is the alternative vision of future of our civilization.

Jacque Fresco’s dream was a high tech energy-efficient city where there is no such thing as cash or politicians, you can walk into a community center and borrow anything you need and the whole thing is run by a central computer.

“The only limitations are those which we impose upon ourselves,” the Project statement says.

Mission

According to the mission statement, the project wants to achieve a sustainable new world civilization beyond politics, poverty, and war.

“The Venus Project proposals will dramatically reduce crime, poverty, hunger, homelessness, and many other pressing problems that are common throughout the world today.”

Fresco’s and  Meadows’ purpose was to build a place “where technology and the methods of science are applied to redesigning our social system with the prime concern being to maximise the quality of life rather than profit,” Roxanne said in an interview with Futurism.

The project is based on a resource-based economy that will stop money exchange and introduce the latest technologies into people’s lives.

Digital politics and no money

The Venus Project founders plan to replace political leaders as we used to know with engineered systems. In other words, they offer to use artificially intelligent systems to solve social problems faced by the community and allocate resources.

“This socio-economic system provides an equitable distribution of resources in an efficient manner without the use of money, barter, credit or servitude of any kind,” Ms Meadows said.

The also consider money as something that should be removed as well. “In a society where goods and services are made available to the entire population free of charge, ownership becomes a burden that is ultimately surpassed by a system of common property.”

City design

Fresco thinks that all houses in the future will be made of light grades of reinforced concrete with a ceramic coating. Such materials can be used in any climatic conditions and they will be more durable.

Also, according to Fresco, such houses will be able to withstand storms and earthquakes.

In addition, each building will be equipped with an electric generator and a heat accumulator, which will make every house independent from the rest of the city.

Now the Venus Project centers are working to begin construction of the first experimental city, which will be financed by donations of people and income from previous developments.

After the cities will function normally, the project team will integrate artificial intelligence into them.

Within the experimental city, a theme park is also planned that will both entertain and inform visitors about the possibilities for humane and environmentally friendly life-styles planned by The Venus Project. It will feature intelligent houses; high-efficiency, non polluting transportation systems; advanced computer technology; and a number of other innovations that can add value to the lives of all people – in a very short period of time.
