How many people here support the idea of The Venus Project?
The Venus Project presents a bold, new direction for humanity that entails nothing less than the total redesign of our culture. There are many people today who are concerned with the serious problems that face our modern society: unemployment, violent crime, replacement of humans by technology, over-population and a decline in the Earth's ecosystems. As you will see, The Venus Project is dedicated to confronting all of these problems by actively engaging in the research, development, and application of workable solutions. Through the use of innovative approaches to social awareness, educational incentives, and the consistent application of the best that science and technology can offer directly to the social system, The Venus Project offers a comprehensive plan for social reclamation in which human beings, technology, and nature will be able to coexist in a long-term, sustainable state of dynamic equilibrium. http://www.thevenusproject.com/ 1. Realizing the declaration of the world's resources as being the common heritage of all people. 2. Transcending the artificial boundaries that currently and arbitrarily separate people. 3. Replacing money-based nationalistic economies with a resource-based world economy. 4. Assisting in stabilizing the world’s population through education and voluntary birth control. 5. Reclaiming and restoring the natural environment to the best of our ability. 6. Redesigning cities, transportation systems, agricultural industries, and industrial plants so that they are energy efficient, clean, and able to conveniently serve the needs of all people. 7. Gradually outgrowing corporate entities and governments, (local, national, or supra-national) as means of social management. 8. Sharing and applying new technologies for the benefit of all nations. 9. Developing and using clean renewable energy sources. 10. Manufacturing the highest quality products for the benefit of the world’s people. 11. Requiring environmental impact studies prior to construction of any mega projects. 12. Encouraging the widest range of creativity and incentive toward constructive endeavour. 13. Outgrowing nationalism, bigotry, and prejudice through education. 14. Eliminating elitism, technical or otherwise. 15. Arriving at methodologies by careful research rather than random opinions. 16. Enhancing communication in schools so that our language is relevant to the physical conditions of the world. ***** There more, but this will do for now :).
