The Bible doesn't teach anything in it that is today wrong with civilization!
Nowhere in the Bibles says it to start global companies and dominate the world and kill everyone and let half the world starve!
in fact it's the opposite, the Bible encourages growth, prosperity, technology, creativity, peace, love and above all being free.
The venus project or whatever they called it can and will NEVER work. People need to feel that they are going to get something out of doing stuff.
If the money factor is taken out of society what is going to replace the "need something out of doing something" factor??
Everyone will just sit on their ass and do nothing because they don't need to work anymore!
Does anyone here really believe that the entire world will work towards a better society without reward?
Why would anyone work their ass off if not necessary?
And robots will never be able to do everything, somebody needs to repair them and build them!
But we can argue that there will be robots for that job but who is going to do the maintenance.
The 2nd law of thermodynamics can't be overcome with only mechanical devices, everything tends towards disorder. If I'm wrong with this statement please correct me.

whose bliss is it to unclog toilets? to clean latrines?
how about to sit around drunk all day? to smoke drugs and feel bliss in their heads? to slack and take the path of least resistance...?

The reality is, just as in the native resource societies, there would be some shared work. We do need mechanics, technicians, some specific labor. Houses do not build themselves yet.
Things would have to be shared, but at much less hours per week for the able bodied.
Perhaps with so many people, only 5 hours a week would suffice. We would have much time for our passions and our families, and even educations. Contributing the things that interest us the most from our talents in an open-source manner to the world, freely giving and taking.

Now, please note that I thoroughly enjoyed this as well as the original, and I'm the last person who is going to cry "disinfo" because it dismantles my precious belief system (LOL) but the timing seems almost TOO perfect. So, is it synchronicity, or something engineered?
And even if the makers of he movie did create the film with foreknowledge of what would happen around the release date...does that necessarily mean that they are agents of TPTB? Or could they be on "our" side?
Honestly this is what's tripping me out more than the contents of the movie itself (which is same-old same-old kinda stuff to those of us who are constantly reading about this kind of stuff.)
