Jacque Fresco challenges the assumption of free will and illustrates how this cherished notion has no basis. He asks the viewer to consider how “cause” is projected as independent agency and questions how we could ever act out of anything free of the influence of our background. He makes the case that belief in free will and individuality is a tool to maintain establishments & social conditions which would otherwise undergo significant modification.
The full lecture is a new addition to the Jacque Fresco Video Lecture Series 2010-2011 and is available in streaming format here: https://www.thevenusproject.com/product/jacque-fresco-free-will-influence-background/
The Venus Project proposes an alternative vision of what the future can be if we apply what we already know in order to achieve a sustainable new world civilization. It calls for a straightforward redesign of our culture in which the age-old inadequacies of war, poverty, hunger, debt and unnecessary human suffering are viewed not only as avoidable but as totally unacceptable. Anything less will result in a continuation of the same catalog of problems inherent in today's world.
