This documentary details the root causes of the systemic value disorders and detrimental symptoms caused by our current established system. This video presentation advocates a new socio-economic system, which is updated to present-day knowledge, featuring the life-long work of Social Engineer, Futurist, Inventor and Industrial Designer Jacque Fresco, which he calls a Resource-Based Economy.

The film details the need to outgrow the dated and inefficient methods of politics, law, business, or any other “establishment” notions of human affairs, and use the methods of science, combined with high technology, to provide for the needs of all the world’s people. It is not based on the opinions of the political and financial elite or on illusionary so-called democracies, but on maintaining a dynamic equilibrium with the planet that could ultimately provide abundance for all people.

Aims and goals of the The Venus Project

Realizing the declaration of the world’s resources as being the common heritage of all people.


Transcending the artificial boundaries that currently and arbitrarily separate people.

Replacing money-based nationalistic economies with a resource-based world economy.

Assisting in stabilizing the world’s population through education and voluntary birth control.

Reclaiming and restoring the natural environment to the best of our ability.

Redesigning cities, transportation systems, agricultural industries, and industrial plants so that they are energy-efficient, clean, and able conveniently to serve the needs of all people.

Gradually outgrowing corporate entities and governments (local, national, or supra-national) as means of social management.

Sharing and applying new technologies for the benefit of all nations.
Developing and using clean, renewable energy sources.

Manufacturing the highest-quality products for the benefit of the world’s people.

Requiring environmental-impact studies prior to construction of any mega-projects.

Encouraging the widest range of creativity and incentive toward constructive endeavour.

Outgrowing nationalism, bigotry, and prejudice through education.

Eliminating elitism—technical or otherwise.

Arriving at methodologies by careful research rather than random opinions.

Enhancing communication in schools so that our language is relevant to the physical conditions of the world.

Providing not only the necessities of life, but also offering challenges that stimulate the mind while emphasizing individuality rather than uniformity.

Finally, preparing people intellectually and emotionally for the changes and challenges that lie ahead

Paradise or Oblivion, by The Venus Project, introduces the viewer to a more appropriate value system that would be required to enable this caring and holistic approach to benefit human civilization. This alternative surpasses the need for a monetary-based, controlled, and scarcity-oriented environment, which we find ourselves in today.
