I watched ZeitGeist Addendum this weekend after much waiting and anticipation. Though I feel that Peter Joseph did the right thing in delving deeper
into the underlying fabric of our society, I also feel he may have been a little premature in promoting a new society to replace the current.
While I greatly appreciate everything the Venus Project is moving towards, I think it puts too much emphasis on the end result and the technica behind
the society, instead of the society itself. We're talking about evolution of the human consciousness and the way man reacts with the world around
him. Of course, the technology is there to make this movement a reality, but the human element seemed almost forgotten or void of any emotion.
For example, certainly crime would drop nearly 100% as a result of the elimination of money being a necessity to survive. But what about people that
inherently have something wrong with them and kill for no reason or purpose? Even if this is not genetic and is in fact learned, does this mean that
families will be "told" the values they will be passing on to the next generation to keep these things from happening? In short, where does the
society stop taking priority over the individual?
In my opinion, any change to society and individual people has to be made fluidly, with no end result in mind. Otherwise, we risk losing some of the
great ideas and revelations evolution has to offer and we risk being even more severely dooped than we have been in the past.
Spread your word, believe in each other, and don't stop learning from those around you.
