I somehow got back to looking at the Zeitgeist Movement forum and was shocked to see so many incredibly desperate followers willing to give up ALL rights to be ruled by "computers" making decisions based on the "carrying capacity of the earth."
The Jonestown, Scientology, Hitler, Mao and Stalin atrocities pale in comparison to the Zeitgeist/Venus project desire to control humans.
As many thousands of people are losing their jobs, they're desperate and willing to give up all rights, clinging to the hope that Jacque Fresco's Venus Project will solve all problems.
It's amazing to see so many people who don't even realize that MONEY = RESOURCES.
There is NO difference. I have a business and I really don't care whether you pay me in dollars, pesos, euros, gold, organic flour or repairs to my truck. Got something else you'd like to trade?
And it's frustrating to know that we could really make a difference, but instead, desperate people are sucked into this Zeitgeist cult.
Somebody mentioned Scientology and that's actually a pretty good comparison. Unlike Scientology, joining the Venus Project is NOT voluntary.
The stated Venus Project goal is to rule the ENTIRE planet!
This isn't about AI. Computers are programmed.
It's about writing a program that calculates the "carrying capacity of the planet". The PROGRAMMERS will decide who works where, what you eat, how you live, and how many people will NOT live because the population exceeds the "carrying capacity."
"Somebody" determined that the earth carrying capacity is 500 million.

Now, AGAIN, from the Zeitgeist FAQ:
The following is a Q&A, which is answered directly by Jacque Fresco
Who makes the decisions in a resource based economy?
No one does. The decisions are arrived at by the introduction of newer technologies and the carrying capacity of the earth. Computers could provide this information with electronic sensors throughout the entire industrial, physical complex. [emphasis added]"
Currently we have about 6 billion people. Do the math.
The Zeitgeist FAQ is scarier than anything Hitler, Stalin and Mao ever wrote.
I don't understand why the Zeitgeist followers don't insist on democracy.
I posted numerous links to ultra cool voting systems at trado.info/node/38
I HIGHLY recommend that you all watch the Common Good Bank slide show at commongoodbank.com/index.php?showvid=1
I want change as much as anyone.
I'm sick of the corruption, pollution, exploitation, wars and especially of knowing that every few seconds a human dies from starvation and lack of drinking water.
And I'd like to change that NOW.
Zeitgeist movie maker and organizer Peter Joseph made Alex Jones look like a complete moron in the interview last year. Both Joseph and Fresco come off as these gentle and kind people. But when you actually take the time to READ their plans, it's clear that they're planning something more like communism.
In communist countries, you have the elite at the top telling the people what they need to do.
Resources are allocated according to availability and needs, priorities are determined by "the computer." The central command decides what is produced where. In communist regimes resources often are NOT available for all people. The elite never suffers.
Notably, despite the lack of freedom and luxuries, many people from FORMER communist countries don't like capitalism and wish the wall in Germany never came down. If you accepted the lack of freedom and democracy, life in the communist countries was easier. Fewer worries, less stress.
In the Venus Project an additional criteria is added to the communist style control:
The carrying capacity of Earth.
The Zeitgeist movement is preparing for Zeitgeist Day on March 15 and I sure hope that many of you will help spread the word about their true intentions.
The Zeitgeist followers certainly have the right to give up their rights. It is their right to become slaves.
HOWEVER, I object to their stated goal of ruling the ENTIRE planet!
If they just wanted to be a community, I wouldn't be so worried. It's their STATED goal of complete control over EVERYBODY on the planet that's so frightening.
