The End of Capitalism, Redesign of Society and Rise of Resource Based Economy with Roxanne Meadows of The Venus Project

Roxanne Meadows is the co-founder of The Venus Project, which is looking to find alternative solutions to the many problems that confront the world today and ultimately build an experimental city to design the future of humanity. From 1975 to the present, Roxanne has worked with renowned futurist, Jacque Fresco until his death in 2017.

The Venus Project offers society a broader spectrum of choices based on the scientific possibilities directed toward a new era of peace and sustainability for all. Through the global Resourced Based Economy, and many other innovative and environmentally friendly technologies directly applied to the social system, The Venus Project plans to dramatically reduce crime, poverty, hunger, homelessness, and many other pressing problems that are common throughout the world today.


    • Yes there has, when I went there for a tour I’ve met them and I have met some more in the UK too who have also been to The Venus Project

  1. This interviewer is failing to see how easy common sense is. People just don’t use it. Only way to get them to use it is through education that actually shapes culture.

  2. Hey Tommy . . . Common sense is a ‘Paine.’ We ‘people’ all fall somewhere in the ‘Bell Curve’ — IMO few ever achieve any ‘common sense,’ and I believe , from a lifetime of EXPERIENCE that few CAN. As a Mensan, Miltary Academy grad, 82 year old WWII orphan geezer with 50+ years experience as an electronic tech — ultimately ‘troubleshooter’ for a major state university engineering department — I’m still hoping to, as my Russian friend Zarka would say, become ‘absolutely certain ‘of anything. Very little cultural (experience-based) ‘education’ (John Dewey) is available as it is almost totally ‘owned’ by our ‘the ‘rentiers and being rendered ‘artificial’ based on pervasive ‘subluminal’ factoids. Wisdom is still a ‘pearl of great (and exponentially inflating) price.’ ‘Culture’ (the beautiful collective hunch) seems ephemeral as it is in the midst of deliberate annihilation that seems to portend grim omens . . . I wish we could try to apply your POV somehow somehow as apposed to the current ‘shock and awe.’ but, as Dad always said “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.”

    Jacque and Roxanne are much appreciated sources of perspective I value — Antoine de  Saint-Exupéry, the TAO, Victor Frankel, Earl Nightengale (Acres of Diamonds) and my Tuscarora friends are among many others.

    • Well without the education the corruption will continue to drive the scarcity. All I am getting out of what you saying is the inherent problems not being able to put to practice what should be common sense for all life in abundance. These bad habits we have with the deliberate manipulation to consume and demand will not end while corruption is profitable. Common sense is allot easier when you simplify common goals and needs. Not everyone is a Horse. The common goal is unquenchable without scope. You would not need to lead if the understanding of fulfilling that thirst can be met. A thirsty horse would not need much convincing to drink.

  3. Really really good stuff! Not sure I like the practice of interjecting recorded comments without giving the guest an opportunity to respond to your perspective. However, all in all the information in this interview was fantastic!
