Jaques Fresco, Founder Of The Venus Project, Dies Aged 101

I love his vision. He’s right, too: “People don’t really want money, but rather they want access to things when they need it, and people in a society of abundance… will really no longer begin to store and accumulate [unnecessary] things.”

Unity consciousness’ll do that to ya, part ownership of everything!

Openhearted Rebel

Jaques Fresco, an inspiration to many and the founder of The Venus Project, recently passed away due to complications related to Parkinson’s disease, aged 101. Fresco is best known for his innovative ideas and blueprints for a sustainable society. The Venus Project, for instance, rejects the current models of mass consumerism and self-destruction and, instead, offers a new model for a resource-based economic system.

Fresco holds many titles, which include educator, architectural designer and concept artist. However, his role as a “futurist” is what has won him the most recognition. For years, Fresco has envisioned the world running on a socio-cooperation which utilizes the methodology of science and the advancements in technology which utilizes the most energy efficient systems ever conceptualized.
