The Basics of Jacque Fresco XP
For those who arent familiar with Jacque... or for those who'd like to give a brief description to others about what his work... Jacque created AAAA system that attempts to take care of everyone and the planet by using the most advanced technology and science we know of today. That's what this stream is about.
If you're already familiar with Jacque's work... you might want to consider getting the educational materials on thevenusproject.com/store. it's kinda like the intermediate level of content that Jacque's done. Advanced level is being able to share his info with others - there's actually courses you can do on the venus project site right now, if you're interested in teaching people about the venus project. so yeh...
JACQUE FRESCO XP
So far any videos you see of him that are freely available will most likely be the basics of 'the venus project'... this is what he worked on most of his life... the venus project advocates and is working towards implementing a resource based economy... which is what i described as AAA system that attempts to take care of everyone and everything... i could go into more detail on this in later streams... but for now i wanna keep things brief...
he was born and raised in new york and lived through the 1920s great depression which began shaping his interest in humanity, society and system approaches... having seen goods and services being available to people in stores around the US but nobody being able to afford them. This triggered the thought that resources are available but nobody has the purchasing power to attain them. His grandfather spoke about humanity as a whole and some of the stories he told him had quite an impact early on in Jacque's life. In school jacque decided not to pledge allegiance to the flag like everyone else - he said he'd rather pledge allegiance to the earth and everyone on it. He later quit school to pursue the areas of science, technology & social planning. he met with Einstein and attempted to have conversations about the social aspects of human behaviour - learning that Albert's views didn't touch the social side of things. he joined and disolved the KKK, demonstrated to flat earth thinking arabs that the earth is round. He was drafted into the military & chose to develop safety mechanisms in fighter planes as aposed to training to kill people. when asked by military officials if he could design bombs to explode outwards rather than upwards, he told them no... even though he knew how to do that but wouldn't. He also witnessed a murder in which 2 policemen threw a drunk homeless man off a bridge while he was sleeping since they didnt want him being sick in their car down to the station. His friends during world war 2 had strict orders not to bomb germany where he later read in newspapers that the US had holdings there. He increasingly found the rules of society to be inherently flawed and currupt and had enough. This is all around the time where he poetically states - this shit's got to go.
He started to travel to see how others lived, and was looking for places where the societies where functional. He spent time with the indigenous people of the south sea islands, learning how they operate & conduct their tribes in accordance with the environment. Everyone there walked around completely naked, and he found no man staring at a female's body - only their eyes when they spoke. When they gathered their fish, the shared them out equally amongst all the natives. And when they crafted boats or utilities, everyone had access to them if they werent in use. Jacque said that one night he was woken up by some guys coming into his tent to take his boat and telling him he wasn't using it. So he saw that there was no such thing as ownership there. He learnt a lot from this visit and many other experiences he encountered, all of which took shape into what he coined at the time, sociocyberneering. A new kind of civilisation where the necessaties of life are to be made available to people WITHOUT a price tag. An abundance of resources created by the most sophisticated forms of science and technology for human concern. An example of this is... we don't pay for the air that we breath because there's so much of it. selling it would be pointless since the idea of scarcity generates the idea of value. He found that if you produce more than enough items, products, or services you decrease the value in those said things. So he applied this idea to housing, water, food, medical care and all other life essentials to human health and well being. He was later interviewed by Larry King in the mid 70s where he began broadcasting his ideas and proposals to the world through television, radio and other sources of media. He made a book called the best that money can't buy and research center in venus florida with Roxanne Meadows called the venus project. This is where they could continue working on designs and future developments for the sustainablity of life on the planet earth. All that he has studied, researched, experimented with and developed over the course of his life since childhood has built up to what he named a RESOURCE BASED ECONOMY. Which is covered in the viral internet film Zeitgeist Addendum made in 2008 by filmmaker peter joseph. The venus project and hense a resource based economy became well known because of this, and as a result, jacque & roxanne decided to give a world lecture tour. engaging with thousands of people to share their content and make it even more known to the general public. When they returned... jacque continued to do tours of the research center in venus florida, and give talks and online seminars for TVP education. to help deepen the understanding others have of the venus project & a resource based economy. Him and roxanne also started their own films and wish to release a major motion picture as soon as possible, showing how we get from here to a resource based economy. and then jacque died last year... 2017.05.18
i hope ive got most of this in order... if not... let me know... cuz i'll eventually be making a film about all this... i know ive missed a lot of stuff too... but if i was to get EVERYTHING on him... things like this stream wouldnt exist yet! but yeh... that's the basics of JAQUE FRESCO XP!!! A course, film, biography of jacque fresco's life experiences.
If we look at when we first hear about Jacque up until now, it should come as no surprise that we ourselves can create courses based on those experencies we had of the good ol man himself.
For example... i first heard about Jacque through the film Zeitgeist Addendum in august 2009 when i was 19. so 9 years ago! since then ive been looking at a lot of different info out there about the world and how we can improve what we have to eventually take care of each other. I decided to start documenting the experiences i have by year.month.day - hour & minute in order to see as and when i learn or experience certain things... in doing this i thought to organise all the content ive experienced of jacque in date & time order... which could be seen as a course in and of itself! I used to support the zeitgeist movement in proposing a resource based economy and took to the streets to give out free copies of zeitgeist addendum which introduces the venus project and Jacque's work. I did a north west england info stall tour with a group of other guys in the UK. even started doing lectures about what ive learnt since hearing about Jacque... and yeh... there's so much i could cover here but the main thing was... to just keep everything simple. to make things easier for people to understand and for us to talk about... cuz as you can imagine... trying to communicate all this to someone who has NO IDEA who jacque is or what a resource based economy's about is a bit of a ballache... especially when you're in the middle of a city center high street where everyone's shopping and even if they do come over and offering them free content... you're still selling the ideas to them within 2 minutes or for however much time they care to give you. So yeh... what im saying is... we can all do with making our own courses based on what we've learnt since discovering Jacque, just our experiences of him into one course... and what we can pass on to others based on it. The same could be said for absolutely everyone else we know on the planet! so this is my call to action... or help... to just get involved on this... and make something of our experiences. for example... find out when you first heard, met or encountered jacque's work... and make a note of the year month day hour and minute - if possible... of when experienced it... and then if you've got any files or memories of all those since then, start to organise it all by xp if we just call it xp from now on... and yeh... I have a forum for all this where we can post everything we have. it's called HDDXP.boards.net. This is where I'm gunna be working on the Jacque Fresco XP course, film and further developments to this content... so that's where we can all connect on this. Also, if you wanna keep up to date with what I'm doing or if you just wanna contact me directly go to leehamster.com. I'll leave links in the description for everyone. so YEH!!! that's pretty much it for now... hope everyone's doing well! now i'm gunna go through the live chat to reply to any messages and answer any questions you might have before i end the stream... so lets see!!!
