BENEFITING: FUTURE BY DESIGN INC
The Venus Project is asking for donations to do a major motion picture depicting life in a resource-based economy. The film is designed to reach the general public throughout the world to introduce an exciting sustainable new social direction depicting a vision of what our future can be if we intelligently apply science and technology with environmental and human concern--a future where war, poverty and hunger could be but a distant memory.
Today we face very trying times where economies and countries are teetering on the brink of chaos; our resources are being depleted through waste and irresponsible management. Technology is displacing jobs that are not coming back. Most of our energy needs are obtained though methods that are destructive to the environment and ourselves though the plundering of finite resources which are being consumed at a prodigious rate. Existing social institutions are not taking the consequences of this same course of action seriously. These and many more problems will be culminating in the near future and we are not prepared to deal with what is coming.
This film offers a possible alternative to this global dilemma. It will be an awakening to many and could point a positive direction to work toward. It portrays in detail a global civilization, which secures, protects, and encourages a more humane world for all people, something we have not been able to do throughout history where all of the world's resources become the common heritage of all of the earth's people.
This does not presume to imply a utopian civilization but one that is always in the process of modification and change an emergent society where our technology is used to benefit the lives of all.
The film would provide a vision of a peaceful society in which all human beings work toward a global family on planet Earth. A civilization in which all people are engaged in the pursuit of a better understanding of themselves and the world they share.
We deeply appreciate any amount you can contribute to help make this a reality.
