Book Of Insights: Meme Series 2 (6th of 9)

“A lot of people are brought up to believe that money is the driving force that generates incentive. It also generates incentive for corruption, embezzlement, taking care of your brother-in-law, unfair practices, racial discrimination, etc..” – Jacque Fresco

Jacque Fresco is best known for his work as a visionary futurist who dared to ask the difficult questions: Will civilization collapse? How can we transition to a new social system? What changes must humans undergo? To these questions, he attempted to give answers in a body of work spanning 80 years. He didn’t just criticize our current situation; he presented us with a thoughtful alternative…

“It was living through the 1929 Great Depression that helped shape my social conscience. During this time, I realized the Earth was still the same place. Manufacturing plants were still intact, and resources were still there, but people didn’t have money to buy the products. I felt the rules of the game we play by were obsolete and insufficient… This began a life-long quest to finding solutions to the many problems that we have today.

“If you want to know where the answers may lie, it is in the application of the methods of science with human concern and environmental concern. The Future by Design refers to the application of the methods of science, not scientists, the methods of science to the social system. Naturally, even the methods of science undergo change. As they change, so would the future.” – Jacque Fresco
