I've thoroughly read all the webiste , and have come to the conclusion , that dreams and ideas are well founded and hoped for, but ultimately all it
would be IF it EVER got off the ground would be a richmans paradise.
You'd have to have a lot of money tp invest in the building of this 'city' life up front, and then redeisgn your life around someone elses
I wouldn't mind living in a 'utopia' if the whole world was like the Venus Project, but seeing as they only have a 25 acre site to 'practice' on
and do all the planning and building with no real equipment, all the idea is at teh moment is a pipe dream.
Yes , we'd all love to live in a world thats not ruled by money, that has free energy generators and has futuristic cars and trains that use maglev
to get around, but again all I can see is a society run by the select few who started it.
Those is they envisage their society and live in it would eventually turn powermad as they know they control the civilians and if anyone non-conforms,
they are evicted from Eden.
Picture the old film Logans Run , but without the maturing game of walking into death when you hit 30,
Unless those that run the Venus project state to the citizenry , you can either vote us in, or out at any time , we'll not hold elections but it wil
be done another way, say like online voting, or 'popularity' voting, where if they do a good job and continually do so then they are not voted out,
however IF they do a bad job or seem to be doing a bad job then they are voted out and leave straight away no quarrelling and no delays.
Plus I'm not too sure of EVERYTHING being made of concrete to ensure a natural world, I do like log cabins as they have a bit of character, I would
like my kitchen cabinets being made of concrete, whilst a good idea for longevity you'd have to make sure that EVERY eventuality is taken into
consideration when building it, like water pipes, heating pipes and drainage pipes etc. , to ensure a good job is one and that you'd have choice to
make it your own.
Yes you can have a very tall block to house everything like cinemas and schools, but you'd have to make sure that it never falls down but could also
be updated, when it becmes athestically unpleasing to the eye.
Give the Venus project their dues, they've at least given it some thought, but thats all it is, a thought with a couple of 'houses' made up
already, 25 acres ain't gonna cut it, you'd need a couple of thousand to make it worthwhile IMO.
One thing that also worries me or puzzles me to be honest, IF the NWO manage to kill off most of the worlds population what are they going to do with
all that land or space thats freed up? Apart from try and own it and then charge the survivors to live there, it's be like ye olde medieaval time,
when landlords were paid byt eh farmers to live there. At least the Venus project has taken into account the populations needs and decided to build UP
in order to allow the planet to repair itself and then be able for teh citizens to re-plant the forests and greenbelts.
