We are justifiably frightened of what tomorrow may bring. Many of us wake up wondering how life will be even in just a few months, once again living in uncertainty. With highly inadequate practices, governments are making decisions to prematurely relax their lockdowns in a desperate attempt to soften the blow to their economies, using their populations as a kind of “canary in the mine.”
Others, like the European Union, are giving “aid” to their member states in the form of loans, further increasing their debt, which the public will have to bear in possible future unemployment, bankruptcy, pay and pension pay cuts, and other malevolent consequences in an attempt to further drive the neoliberal agenda.
History may judge them harshly, but in the present, real people will suffer.
In times like this, we are reminded that most politicians are just businessmen and lawyers, severely underqualified to take care of the well-being of all people and the environment. They are subservient, just like all of us, to the bottom line – profit. Leaders are put there to keep things as they are, which is to perpetuate our frail global operating system.
“Frail operating system” is a term that I use to describe any operating system that has its focus fixed on infinite economic growth on a finite planet with finite resources. The fragility of the rules of the game that we all agree to play by are exposed when a crisis, such as a pandemic, financial bust, or some combination of both, grows as a byproduct of the inefficiencies of our current global economic system.
It seems to me that the five elements of planetary destruction, namely:
- War and,
- Financial institutions,
continue to interact to lead our society to oblivion by driving forward to achieve their bottom lines without any regard for the collateral damage they invariably cause.
While necessary in this type of system to ensure that people adhere to quarantine and social distancing protocols, and for them to gain knowledge of who has the virus and who doesn’t, governments are asserting emergency powers over their people and collecting insurmountable amounts of data about the population. As always, we have hardly any idea of what the governments of the world are up to. Transparency seems to be a one way deal in this system.
An economic system that crumbles if people don’t exercise mindless and reckless over-consumption is far too infantile in its understanding to possess the power it wields. It is holding life on the planet hostage to its stupidity. We need something immensely better. We need a Global Resource-Based Economy.

While humanity is completely capable of changing things for the batter if we all just work together to reject this system and replace it with something that benefits the entire planet and everyone on it, there are still factors that keep people from doing that. The current economic system holds hostage people’s means of survival by enforcing debt. Homes are denied to people unless they pay rent or a mortgage, and food is denied people unless they pay for it. The same goes for basic services and utilities.
People are put in a situation where they can’t risk rejecting the current economic system and refusing to take part in it, because they can’t risk themselves and their families becoming homeless and starving. We must achieve the methods of resource management and supply needed to free everyone from this trap so that they can safely refuse to participate in this debt driven economy, and make the changes needed to transition to a Resource Based Economy.
Methods such as cooperatives would be a great tool to achieve this (while we are still held captive by the monetary debt based economic system) if applied on a global scale. If everyone on the planet joined together in a cooperative of all humanity, then it would be easy to fund creating the needed infrastructure, services, utilities, food production methods and supply to make them freely available to everyone. Humanity will then be free to create a much better world than we have now.
I totally agree with this Jonathon. A structure of a world wide co-operative work force … no body needs to die of thirst or hunger.
The current system is listing. Technocracy is looming. “Freedom” is eroded daily. The might of The force is pushing along The Agenda. Information gathering currently is exceptional and getting more effective rapidly. How does the next 25 years look for the average citizen?
I think that everything starts from education. When you know how to distinct between needs and desires, you will become a free man. And you will not be able to achieve this through ignorance and permeability to manipulation.
World is relatively change
* Koch’s Postulate and River’s Criteria have NOT been met to prove SARS-CoV-2 is cause of infection or disease
* No scientific experimentation to prove SARS-CoV-2 is human to human transmissible
* Trillions of viruses circulate around the world through the atmosphere -https://www.nature.com/articles/s41396-017-0042-4
* No scientific evidence that sheltering in place prevents disease
* No scientific evidence that social distancing prevents disease
* There is scientific evidence to prove that locking people down causes health problems for people (lowering immune system, causing stress, causing anxiety, causing depression, etc).
Basically, locking the entire world down was entirely unscientific. The scientific method was NOT applied in making these decisions. How can the Venus project support this literal insanity?
1. The pathogenicity of SARS-CoV-2 in hACE2 mice was clarified and the
36 Koch’s postulates were fulfilled as well, and the mouse model may facilitate the
37 development of therapeutics and vaccines against SARS-CoV-2:
2. ….it was shown that human-to-human transmission of SARS-CoV-2 has spread via droplets or close contacts:
3. Trillions of viruses : True Premise! But Invalid argument, definition: https://www.iep.utm.edu/val-snd/
4. + 5. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3654617/
6. Sure…coping mechanisms: https://www.science.org.au/curious/people-medicine/isolation-and-anxiety-strategies-cope-during-covid-19
Basically, locking the entire world down was entirely scientific. Letting them go out prematurely (meaning without testing everyone, releasing the healthy and isolating/treating the infected), was unscientific.
1. Did you read this paper? Lets first take a pause
“This is an unedited manuscript that has been accepted for publication. Nature Research are providing this early version of the manuscript as a service to our authors and readers. The manuscript will undergo copyediting, typesetting and a proof review before it is published in its final form. Please note that during the production process errors may be discovered which could affect the content, and all legal disclaimers apply.”
So this paper has NOT been peer reviewed yet. And already, there are problems:
“14 May 2020Readers are alerted that there are some anomalies in figure presentation in this paper. We are investigating and appropriate editorial action will be taken once this matter is resolved.”
Diving into the paper:
> Therefore, our results clarified the pathogenicity of SARS-CoV-2 in mice, together with the previous clinical studies7 , completely fulfills the Koch’s postulates and
(which was not certified by peer review) is the author/funder. confirmed SARS-CoV-2 was the pathogen of COVID-19. The mouse model may facilitate the development of therapeutics and vaccines against SARS-CoV-2.
The references in this sentence do not fulfill Koch’s postulate. In fact, the reference makes ZERO mention of Koch’s postulate.
Koch’s Postulate: 2. The microorganism must be isolated from a diseased organism and grown in pure culture.
In the “Clinical features of patients infected with 2019 novel coronavirus in Wuhan, China” paper they write:
“A novel coronavirus, which was named 2019-nCoV, was isolated then from lower respiratory tract specimen and a diagnostic test for this virus was developed soon after that.14 ”
Now lets dig into Ref http://weekly.chinacdc.cn/en/article/id/a3907201-f64f-4154-a19e-4253b453d10c
Which is just a weekly brief from China CDC. Its not a valid reference suitable for a scientific paper.
As you can see, the Ref 14 turns out to be invalid. Which means any claims regarding isolation in the previous paper are invalid. Which means the original claim to Koch’s postulate is INVALID!!!!
You cannot just state that Koch’s postulate is satisfied without going through the trouble to prove through experimentation that Koch’s postate has been indeed satisfied. Its especially dishonest to use a reference for this claim when the reference makes ZERO mention of Koch’s.
2. Human to Human transmission. In this article they claim the following:
“It was shown that human-to-human transmission of SARS-CoV-2 has spread via droplets or close contacts [58,59]”
Ok, so they themselves did not prove it and instead used a reference.
The first reference (58) https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/jmv.25693 is titled: ‘Potential of large “first generation” human‐to‐human transmission of 2019‐nCoV’
Has ZERO experimentation of spreading an infection from a sick person to a healthy person.
The second reference (59) https://www.atsjournals.org/doi/10.1164/rccm.2014P7 is titled: ‘COVID-19 Disease due to SARS-CoV-2 (Novel Coronavirus)’
Also does not PROVE human to human transmission. No experiments were conducted trying to infect a healthy human by way of a sick human.
As you can see clearly, this paper is indeed fraudulent.
Here is an example of experimentation to try to prove a virus is human to human transmittable. Notice, the experiment failed. I have yet to find this sort of experimentation with SARS-CoV-2.
“Perhaps the most interesting epidemiological studies conducted during the 1918–1919 pandemic were the human experiments conducted by the Public Health Service and the U.S. Navy under the supervision of Milton Rosenau on Gallops Island, the quarantine station in Boston Harbor, and on Angel Island, its counterpart in San Francisco. The experiment began with 100 volunteers from the Navy who had no history of influenza. Rosenau was the first to report on the experiments conducted at Gallops Island in November and December 1918.69 His first volunteers received first one strain and then several strains of Pfeiffer’s bacillus by spray and swab into their noses and throats and then into their eyes. When that procedure failed to produce disease, others were inoculated with mixtures of other organisms isolated from the throats and noses of influenza patients. Next, some volunteers received injections of blood from influenza patients. Finally, 13 of the volunteers were taken into an influenza ward and exposed to 10 influenza patients each. Each volunteer was to shake hands with each patient, to talk with him at close range, and to permit him to cough directly into his face. None of the volunteers in these experiments developed influenza. Rosenau was clearly puzzled, and he cautioned against drawing conclusions from negative results. He ended his article in JAMA with a telling acknowledgement: “We entered the outbreak with a notion that we knew the cause of the disease, and were quite sure we knew how it was transmitted from person to person. Perhaps, if we have learned anything, it is that we are not quite sure what we know about the disease.”69 (p. 313)”
3. Trillions of viruses circulate around the world through the atmosphere -https://www.nature.com/articles/s41396-017-0042-4
It is totally relevent. Its been proven that virus travel in the automostphere. The paper hypothesises that influenza can be spread around the world quickly through the atmosphere. You have given ZERO argumentation against this other than calling it a fallcy. I would expect more from the Venus Project.
Sheling at home will not prevent you from being exposed to the virus that are spread in the atmosphere. Sure there is no proof that SARS-CoV-2 is in the atmosphere but there is also no proof that its human to human transmissible.
4.5 Is patient isolation the single most important measure to prevent the spread of multidrug-resistant pathogens?
This says NOTHING about isolating HEALTHY individuals. Are you reading the referencing you are providing me?
“Isolation or cohorting of infected patients is an old concept. Its purpose is to prevent the transmission of microorganisms from infected or colonized patients to other patients, hospital visitors, and health care workers, who may subsequently transmit them to other patients or become infected or colonized themselves. Because the process of isolating patients is expensive, time-consuming, often uncomfortable for patients and may impede care, it should be implemented only when necessary.”
This is interesting “Although isolation measures are based on the current understanding of the mechanisms of transmission of organisms, few data are available to demonstrate their efficacy.”
“Basically, locking the entire world down was entirely scientific. Letting them go out prematurely (meaning without testing everyone, releasing the healthy and isolating/treating the infected), was unscientific.”
I have just debunked your references. You failed to debunk any of my arguments especially not even attempting to address point 3 regarding trillions of virus in the earth’s atmosphere. You have presented me B.S. BAD SCIENCE as Jacque Fresco would say.
I do not understand your motivation for supporting this BAD SCIENCE. Jacque Fresco would never sign off of these types of articles. He was very careful when making references.
Regarding Debunking Bad Science. Dr Andrew Kaufman has created a slide show presentation that demonstrates the claim that Koch’s postulate for SARS-CoV-1 was fraudulent. He also debunks a few papers for SARS-CoV-2.
And if you want all of the references (3 out of 4 parts published so far)
Alright, I have to admit to certain mistakes on my end.
Assumption I made in error:
That you understood that since COVID19 Jumped to humans late 2019, that to have research papers that have been edited, peer reviewed, replicated, etc etc etc would be difficult. Even it went through all the hoops… it’ll still be too early because it’s not a long term study and the sample I’m sure is not representative. These things take time. Proper research takes time and over many subjects etc. So I was merely presenting the stuff that’s out there for now. So it’s not written in stone, it’s just what’s available for now, do we accept it ? No! Do we reject it?No! We hold it in abeyance. If you view “the stuff” with a basis of “I never believe the official story” (I.e. heavily biased) then of course the rest of your comments follow naturally.
“That you understood that since COVID19 Jumped to humans late 2019,”
You made an error on MY understanding? I have just debunked your references and all you can say is that your error is MY misunderstanding? That is being dishonest.
Many governments in the world made decisions such as LOCKING DOWN HEALTHY PEOPLE that were NOT scientifically proven at the time of the decision and STILL are not scientifically proven today. This is not the application of the scientific method.
Governments forcefully Locking Down Healthy people is insanity. How can the Venus Project support the decision to lock down healthy people? Jacque Fresco lived through WW2. Would he approve the NAZI style lock downs? Would he approve warrantless searches (now legal in countries like New Zealand)?
Your claims are NOT what the Venus Project stands for at least what it USED to stand for when Jacque was alive. How have you become the mouth piece for the Venus Project? What is your agenda?
I am not sure what you understood from Jacque Fresco, but it sounds like an incredible misunderstanding. Please be aware that whatever is being produced is going through Roxanne Meadows, I don’t think I need you to tell you who she is. So if someone like Roxanne who spent more than half of her life learning under Jacque Fresco, approves of this then I suggest you reassess your understanding of The Venus Project.
Most politicians are corrupt and incompetent, part of the system and they are put there to perpetuate its focus, generating property wealth and power to the hands of a few. Very much a Fresco argument.
Jacque did not deny the pandemics of the past, in fact he used them as an example, as I did here, to point out the inefficiencies of our current institutions (see 5 elements of planetary destruction in article) vs the methods of science applied with human and environmental concern. (see this snippet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Np04MrK8Bbk).
The stuff he spoke about he learnt about them through internal industry documents, government investigations, or whistleblowers. Not by overriding suspicion, over-interpreting evidence or Contradictory thinking.
Lets assume that your debunking was fair, (meaning lets disregard the fact that it is too early to have solid research so we use what we can) does not by any measure mean that your assertions are valid. Even though I can agree that the research is sketchy it does not mean that the events of COVID19 are a hoax. It just means it’s too early and very little is known but my mind doesn’t go into a spiral of hyper-suspicion.
Roxanne Meadows stopped the tours in an attempt to reduce her exposure and voluntarily stopped the tours at Venus as a result of COVID19…which means… No hyper-suspicion in the Venus Project and perhaps to your disappointment only a healthy level of skepticism.
I hope this clarifies our position.
Very interesting read and I completely agree. I think one of the steps to making the steps to advancing collectively is to make it “trendy” if this information reaches my generation in a way where people around my age group (youth) see the world we live in now as unhinged then we can be there future and change it. Information like this needs to passed around online left to right. Try using Tik Tok.
I work for them as far as economic concerns
here is some food for thought
I enjoy reading all responses. If there is one thing we can agree with is that the hierarchical power structure is abusive, in governments, businesses and communities. My sister & I recently moved to an off-grid community in an Earthship. Many young people (people of all ages, but need more youth to keep momentum going!)are learning about sustainable living. I think that The Venus Project should meld understanding & creative juices with Earthship Biotecture. We need to help each other grow out of the enslaved systems that have too much power for a few controlling too many in unsustainable and criminal ways.
Check out Earthshipglobal.com – perhaps there can be a meeting if the minds.❣️
I’ve only just found out about Earthships after reading your post and looking them up. What a fantastic self contained ecosystem design for housing. I had some ideas about converting waste material and CO2 into building materials that may compliment creating earthship based villages, towns and cities in the future. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pB13J_AXAo&feature=share
Since making that video I found out about
Geoploymer Concrete https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izCV1DwvODY
Insulated Concrete Forms and Insulation made from recycled plastic.
I’ve been following some recent events in the Navajo Nation since Ireland started donating to them to help with their effort to keep people safe during the pandemic, and they have finally gotten $600 million from the cares act which they intend to use to build proper housing and infrastructure. They only started using money based economics last century and their elders remember how things were before using money. They want to gain genuine self sufficiency and take care of their land and open spaces.
I think Earthship design housing incorporated in a community Regen Village (with a school, medical facility, community center and access center) could provide that. Several will have to be made to provide the amount of housing and facilities needed as most of the population have virtually nothing, and the requirements for self sustaining systems to provide Universal Basic Services could also be built that operate at zero marginal cost, and thus with some careful and efficient planning they would have the start of a Resource Based Economy. Getting these ideas to the people and leadership of the Navajo Nation and cooperating to help them design these things has to be achieved though.
Я очень много перечитала комментарий , многим этот проект очень нравится , но я поняла почему он тормозит. Мы не можем найти пути к ТЕЛЕВИДЕНИЮ. Все люди очень авторитарные и пока этот проект не покажут по ТВ – люди не будут серьёзно к нему относиться. кто может написать петицию от нас всех единомышленником – мы подпишемся и будем искать заинтересованных людей – например через ЛДПР. Жириновскому нужна свежая струя – у него есть канал.
Вот мое конкретное предложение. Предлагайте свои варианты. Материалов для ТЕЛЕВИДЕНИЯ достаточно – может деньги для этого собрать ?
I think it also important to specify that when TVP uses the term, global resource-based economy, that they note it is not related to or connected to the New World Order or having a global currency. This has been one of the disconnects i’ve seen when promoting TVP that some don’t understand. They also equate RBE to communism/socilism or utopian societies which i never see TVP distancing themselves from or making distinctions that it is not those things and why.
You are right these are concerns that people have. These are not the only ones. We have over a 100 FAQ’s including all these issues…it would be highly impractical to keep addressing 100+ issues people have when they first encounter the information.
“Maybe getting out in the fresh air and sunshine should not have been prohibited in the first place!
As we now have much more data, it is becoming increasingly clear that the US states and the countries that locked down the tightest also suffered the highest death rates. Ultra locked-down Italy suffered 495 Covid deaths per million while relatively non-locked down South Korea suffered only five deaths per million. The same is true in the US, where non lockdown states like South Dakota were relatively untouched by the virus while authoritarian-led Michigan, New York, and California have been hardest hit.”
“Yesterday, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar admitted the obvious: “We are seeing that in places that are opening, we’re not seeing this spike in cases.” So why not open everything? Because these petty tyrants cannot stand the idea of losing the ability to push people around.”
“Shutting down the entire United States over a virus that looks to be less deadly than an average flu virus – particularly among those under 80 who are not already sick – has resulted in mass unemployment and economic destruction. More Americans may die from the wrong-headed efforts to fight the virus than from the virus itself.”
“Americans should pause and reflect on the lies they are being sold. Masks are just a form of psychological manipulation. Many reputable physicians and scientists have said they are worthless and potentially harmful. Lockdowns are meant to condition people to obey without question. A nation of people who just do what they are told by the “experts” without question is a nation ripe for a descent into total tyranny. This is no empty warning – it’s backed up by history. ”
The PV has to be careful when supporting “official scientific” measures. We know that they are not interested in welfare, health, or privacy, but are interested in power and profit.
There are many doctors, scientists and epidemiologists (also people who are defenders of freedom or civil rights) who are opposing the WHO’s measures carried out by statal governments.
There is the book called Bechamp or Pasteur. A LOST CHAPTER IN THE HISTORY OF BIOLOGY published in 1923. It explains how through his experiments Bechamp demonstrated that Pasteurs germ theory, which was actually formulated by Girolamo Fracastoro (an Italian poet and physician, 1483 –1553) of Verona, is incomplete and that germs, are actually opportunistic scavengers of dead tissue and waste and not the cause of disease as Pasteur speculated. Bechamps terrain theory points out that disease, is a product of the environment and not of one single pathogenic agent and thus our militaristic approach of fighting disease rather than altering the environment responsible for diseases is counter productive and detrimental to public health. Regarding viruses. We actually started to investigate viruses in 1939 with the creation of the electron microscope and we still don’t fully understand how they work. Molecular biology though has shown us that the human virome is an integral part of biological systems with functions that range from defence against bacteria (see bacteriophage) , the breaking down of cell junk Rna debri as a result of cell poisoning (see exosomes), several regulatory functions that play a major role in the evolution of species by turning on and off certain genes (see endogenous retroviruses), communication of information between cells etc. etc and many more we don’t understand yet. The theory of viruses as an agent of desease was formulated long before we could even see a virus. Now I will state this and don’t take my word for it, do your own research. There is no evidence whatsoever, in bibliography of human to human transmission of Sars, Mers, H1N5 and other ” respiratory” viruses. Quite the contrary, bibliography suggest that they don’t transmit via air droplets. As for viruses hijacking cells, this is how viruses enter cells. They have a surface protein which binds to the cell receptor, in a key to lock manner, so the cell opens to let the virus come in. But that is the main pathway that anything enters into the cells. By the way I am not making any of this up, this is all documented. you can dive in to the subject and check any of the information. In conclusion. I do not dismiss the germ theory. Bacteria can invade and attack tissue as viruses can invade and attack cells. But under what conditions do they attack them. We know that bacteria are everywhere and also part of natural human microflora. The same with viruses. Well it seems that bacteria will attack diseased and decomposing tissue, i.e the case of a big wound and if the conditions allow it. Also many pandemics in the history of mankind have been due to contaminated water, either through mixture with sewage water where the number of colonies where in the gazillions, or through toxic heavy metals in water, air, food and cookware. Viruses, seem to attack unhealthy cells, which have undergone cell poisoning that’s why respiratory viral diseaseses kill people with one or more underlying conditions. So we should study the environmental conditions that contribute to tissue damage and cell poisoning. We know that our air, water and food is highly contaminated with all kinds of toxins, heavy metals, gmo, pesticides, microwaves etc etc that cause cell poisoning and tissue damage. Germs are scavengers and such as a fly would leave its larvae to feast on a decomposing body, you will find that germs are doing the same as part of the recycling of matter. But the larvae did not kill the organism.
This is an excerpt from the book Rats, Lice and History, chapter 1 page 14: “bacteria, Protozoa, viruses, infected fleas, lice, ticks, mosquitoes, and bedbugs will always lurk in the shadows ready to pounce when neglect, poverty, famine, or war lets down the defences. And even in normal times they prey on the weak, the very young and the very old, living along with us, in mysterious obscurity waiting their opportunities.” This falls perfectly in line with Bechamps theory and the findings of molecular biology regarding the relationship of germs and disease and their “opportunistic” nature. So let’s take a look at the recent respiratory outbreak in Wuhan China, from an epidemiologists perspective, which was attributed to a novel, mysterious, aggressive coronavirus. Wuhan China has been struggling with pneumonia outbreaks for years and people were actually wearing masks long before the outbreak, because the air was so polluted due to industrial emissions. People were actually protesting because of air pollution prior to the “outbreak”. But the media and the medical institutions decided to omit this little detail. So what was the cause of the outbreak? A coronavirus? Could it be that the virus is the byproduct of the disease. I won’t get into covert military operations who have indulged in “biological” warfare since war is known to man, either by well poisoning, dumping corpses or shit into the enemies water supplies simulating a pandemic under siege, or by chemical warfare using heavy metals and toxins to undermine the quality of food, air and water, or defoliators and other agents used in modern chemical military warfare. This is beside the point, but something to keep in mind. My point is that the germ theory is a simplistic attempt to define disease as result of a single pathogenic agent, not taking into account all the other pathophysiolohical mechanisms which lead to disease. It is a militaristic approach which falls very much in line with the established narrative about everything. We have to be at war with something in order to perpetuate the monetary system. Now we are at war with an invisible enemy, which is extremely convenient and it is a war that will never end. t it. This is the new “normal” now. Social distancing, contact tracing, curfews, enforced vaccinations and medications, surveillance etc. etc. This is the point that Jacque warned that the monetary system resorts to fascism for population control and installs machines to do the dirty job, because they are much more efficient. It will eventually fail, but the transition will be extremely painful.
I have noticed many misunderstandings that have been created by people interpreting Jacque’s work their own way. Meaning, to support their way of thinking. That is why he also supported the development of a language which was not subject to interpretation.
Having studied Jacque’s lectures (and continue to do so) Under supervision, and scrutinised it I have drawn different conclusions. Such as, Jacque Fresco mentioned fascism in the context of a systemic crisis. Meaning, fascism is a more likely scenario during crisis. (He is not the first to do so). This is a ‘normal’ response to a system that leaves things up to people. What does that mean? Well they know that if they “trust” people to take precautions on their own, a lot probably won’t. So they impose penalties and try to police it. In time of crisis “whatever works” is the answer. Meaning if it stops the spread of the disease it will probably be used. Now, could they have done it more efficiently? Yes! Even within the current system it was possible. Some countries did handle it better than others but since this is a global problem it needs global coordination. Something we haven’t seen with other pressing issues. (Which was the message of the video in the first place.)
This is not a transition towards a Resource Based Economy. This is a global crisis (both financial and health) and during a crisis this is what happens. Now, does the ruling class look at the current situation and think “hmm how convenient, look how much freedom people are giving up. How can we use this to our advantage?” I won’t say “yes that’s definitely what’s happening!” but I wouldn’t put it passed them. Having said that I don’t have evidence for that… I am Making an educated guess based on the current values.
So the way I see things is that this is a chicken/egg argument. But my chicken/egg argument is tilted towards the latter scenario described.
How would a Resource Based Economy deal with this, stay tuned PART III out soon!
What I was referring to is based on observational experimentation, in contrast to speculatory dogmatism. You have noticed misunderstandings in interpreting Jacques work, but maybe you have misunderstood many things too. Nevertheless, there are specific scientific protocols in every discipline which are always based on observational experimentation and replication of the results. This is how the scientific method operates. So when someone makes a claim, for example that a certain virus is the cause of a disease it is the responsibility of the one making the claim to provide evidence that this is so, following certain protocols, which can be replicated, by external researchers. By upholding centuries old theories, which have never been proven, we actually retard the evolution of science. Science is all about change, not dogmatism and with the advent of new technologies and techniques we can investigate the microbiome closer than ever before. So the theory should be updated according to new findings. Yet it doesn’t. Sounds familiar? For thousands of years people believed in invisible powers behind natural phenomena, call it gods, demons, karma, fate, or whatever. This is the same. The germ theory was formulated long before we could even see germs, the virus theory long before we could see viruses. Now molecular biology is painting a very different picture of how viruses operate. But dogmatism is holding us back. It took thousands of years to accept that the Earth is not flat. I hope it doesn’t take the same to accept that microbes are the messengers of life, not vice versa. So, instead of following established beliefs, use the scientific method to investigate the validity of the claim do not just accept it because an institution which is known to have vested interest said so. That’s what the Venus Project is about. It’s about reclaiming your mind, which has been retarded through centuries of indoctrination. Otherwise there is no chance for real change.
Transparency is key. Honesty is key. Thank you for your insights. The golden rule should be applied not to people but to all businesses and organizations as well.
The fragility of the rules of the game that we all agree to play by are exposed when a crisis, such as a pandemic, financial bust, or some combination of both, grows as a byproduct of the inefficiencies of our current global economic system.
