So I agreed with this old man from The Venus Project. A free society, no work, no laws, machines do it all for you, everyone is stress free and we all live in harmony away from the terrorist elite that controls everything — WHERE DO I SIGN UP? All though to be perfectly honest, I think what this man was talking about is far too advanced for humans today as they are. Not technology wise, but as a mentality. I don’t really think we can. (Sorry, Obama, it turns out– No We Can’t).
And it wouldn’t be right to force us to. And believe me, I’d fight to bring down this SUPPOSEDLY wonderful society if it was forced upon ANYONE who didn’t want it forced on them. It really started to sound all most communistic in a way. It sounded like they wanted to do away with old values and old beliefs — religious systems, familial values, etc. And that’s not right. That’s what the communist’s tried to do in Russia. That’s what they want to do in the New World Order.
That’s what they did on communes in Israel (known as a Kibbutz) — where the children who grew up there had no constructive family life or parenting or anything.. and it pretty much didn’t work for the children involved. So why do away with traditional families? Why even HINT at it? The old man said how parents indoctrinate their children towards their belief systems…
And he is talking about it as if it’s negative.
This is where I started to get edgy and suspicious with the movie. If you agree with this old man, then you ALSO agree with California’s decision to stop homeschooling — when a LOT of homeschooling is done for religious purposes (check out my post about that here: ritualistic.org... to my "Most Homeschooling in California is banned" post), and you also DISAGREE with Aaron Russo when he speaks negatively about how those at the top of this centuries old pyramid scheme (taking right from Peter Josephs mouth) want your children to go to state funded schools and be indoctrinated with what THEY want your children to be indoctrinated by (and it is usually anti religious — I have seen it with my own two eyes in the school system and the many many schools I have been to).
I mean, I really wouldn’t doubt if this comes back later in time that The Venus Project was some CIA funded group or experiment — after all, they say Jonestown may have been a CIA experiment. Just remember folks: Just because it SOUNDS pretty, doesn’t mean it is.
This is where critical thinking MUST come into play.
I think the author and Jaque Fresco are in agreement that the root of the institutions, especially religious institutions, is monetary in nature. With this root, we're being held back and will probably never know real freedom.
Against that backdrop, many have left the reservations, weakening extended families even further. And exacerbating the plight of those who remain was a federal policy of trying to integrate the Lakota into mainstream society by banning their language and religion, particularly in the boarding school settings, Akard said.
