In this lecture, Jacque Fresco explores the causes and consequences of conforming to an unsane culture. Fresco begins with investigating whether people can really be ‘aware’ of anything. Throughout most of this lecture, Fresco explores why members of a culture conform to expectations of friends, family, and institutions. He describes the difficulty of escaping the complications that arise when a person is pulled between their own needs and playing the games of culture. Fresco criticizes the errors and follies of conventional thinking that produce superstition and disappointment and warns against looking for ‘justice’ and relying on ‘hope’ to make life better. Fresco accounts for the widespread fear of change, the risks of personal experimentation, and the preference of most people to stay safe and comfortable. He suggests a way to resist cultural expectations while maintaining a sense of sanity.
