For newer models to become reality, the current system must collapse, and surely it will. Our system is not designed to work in such a capacity to which it has reached
This is a continuation of the VENUS PROJECT......
Hello Jonos, David, and Perter - In a collapse I do not think people will be jumping in the streets for global organization singing the wicked witch is dead (now nor never)... Like you Jonos, I've been in the trenches regarding this matter. I love the vision of the Venus Project but! The RBE is just NOT feasible and will require unit-of-measure to set value or you have this --- “this 2 ounce (sorry no measuring in the Venus kingdom) Limestone rock is worth your car because 'I' said so - now give it to me because 'I' don‘t need to work because 'I' have a basket of Limestone and 'I' can live off of it forever and ever.” Please, the problem is not money, the problem is in the growth calculation used for compound interest which is based upon the mathematical rule of 72. The VENUS Project may sale this to Utopianists dreamers but they cannot sale it to me.
Do they have potential - yes! Do I personally fall for their story - let’s see the math - I think they should anti-up of get out of the way of people who have real solutions to real world problems and are not afraid to conquer them without stirring up an emotion of hate. I’m curious - I wonder how many Narcissists the VENUS Project has gathered.
The problem with money is the same problem we have with energy - it is not sustainable.
