The Choice is Ours (2016) Full Feature Parts 1-4 for general release on Youtube. With interviews and presentations of what the future could be if we apply the most sophisticated methods of science and technology towards problem-solving for the benefit of all people as depicted by The Venus Project.
This documentary explores the determinants of behavior to dispel the myth of “human nature”, demonstrating that the environment shapes behavior. It illustrates how our social structures impose our values and behaviors demonstrating that our global monetary system is obsolete and increasingly insufficient to meet the needs of most people. It concludes with the vision of The Venus Project to build an entirely new world from the ground up, a “redesign of the culture” where all enjoy a high standard of living, free of servitude and debt, while also protecting the environment.
