Reproduction, l'alimentation, le traitement, l'apparence Intro: 0:00 Part 1 6:16 Part 2 23:28 Part 3 47:03 Part 4 1:19:09 Produced/Directed by Roxanne Meadows and Joel Holt Script by Roxanne Meadows Editor Joel Holt, assisted by Roxanne Meadows & Nathanael Dinwiddie Original Score by Kat Epple This film series explores many aspects of our society. To rethink what is possible in our world, we need to consider what kind of world we want to live in. Although we refer to it as a civilization, it is anything but civilized. Visions of global unity & fellowship have long inspired humanity, yet the social arrangements up to the present have largely failed to produce a peaceful and productive world. While we appear to be technically advanced, our values and behaviors are not. The possibility of an optimistic future is in stark contrast to our current social, economic, and environmental dilemmas. The Choice Is Ours includes interviews with notable scientists, media professionals, authors, and other thinkers exploring the difficulties we face. Part I provides an introduction and overview of cultural & environmental conditions that are untenable for a sustainable world civilization. It explores the determinants of behavior to dispel the myth of “human nature” while demonstrating how environment shapes behavior. The science of behavior is an important - yet largely missing - ingredient in our culture. Part II questions the values, behaviors, and consequences of our social structures, and illustrates how our global monetary system is obsolete and increasingly insufficient to meet the needs of most people. Critical consideration of the banking, media, and criminal justice systems reveals these institutions for what they really are: tools of social control managed by the established political and economic elite. If we stay the present course, the familiar cycles of crime, economic booms & busts, war, and further environmental destruction are inevitable. Part III explains the methods and potential of science. It proposes solutions that we can apply at present to eliminate the use of non-renewable sources of energy. It depicts the vision of The Venus Project to build an entirely new world from the ground up, a “redesign of the culture”, where all enjoy a high standard of living, free of servitude and debt, while also protecting the environment. Part IV explains how it is not just architecture and a social structure that is in desperate need of change, but our values which have been handed down from centuries ago. They too need to be updated to our technological age, which has the potential to eliminate our scarcity-driven societies of today. Our problems are mostly of our own making, but we can still turn things around before the point of no return. It’s not too late for an optimistic outlook on the fantastic possibilities that lie before us. Jacque Fresco-Futurist, Industrial Designer, Social Engineer, Founder of The Venus Project Jeffrey A.

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. Learn more at Support/donate to the project: Become a volunteer:


  1. Dont blow out the candle until you invent the lightbulb.....sure maybe one day this could happen but we arnt at the technological level yet for technology to do all the work. At the current level this is just communism, which doesnt give people ambition to work if everything can be given to you by society. Capitalism incourages people to work and develop society. The reason banks can loan out money the way we do is because of that trust and investment to overall better the economy.
  2. Your ideas are not wrong. But you see it from the point of view from an extravert male. I’m missing the female and introvert aspect of people here. There is no talk about children, family, about spirituality. I know you are all reason and logic. But there is another side you are not in touch with. My kind of people sense a coldness over this
    There is a whole world behind the visible one we live in. You have to “experience” it, then you’ll know.
    THE self is what connects us all and we all have to find our TRUE selves. In the world today we are manipulated through the ego and we have forgotten the connection we all have. My own experience, The Key and this youtube video explains

  4. Don't think about it, just do it.
  5. JC the universe has no purpose? What are you? No emotions? Are we alowed to be human beings or robots?
    Why this financial system is going down is because some of the few refuse to step down, after having financially stripped the population and have put everyone a debt on their heads, And when that happens...yes, the population will get angry.
    Seems like some people will get rich behind the scenes in building new infrastructures and probably GMO modificarion, chip implants, drug industry....and behind the scenes someone controls the availability of resources. Who are we kidding?
    And it’s not about awareness of the body, but self-awareness...awareness of the soul. But do any of you even have a soul? This seems cold and depressing
  6. 'The Choice is Ours.' No. It Isn't.
  7. Science with God in mind is almost infinite, unfortunately science without God in mind; will eventually be the down fall of Humanity.
    We are led to believe via the various indoctrinated systems that have been inherited by the controlling few, God is external yet; God is internal.
    Without the awareness of how very individually special we 'all' are, the wonders that await to be discovered. We find ourselves constantly living on the edge of self annihilation, let others control the very essence of who we are.
    Jacque had a dream, not to better himself; but all of Humanity. Yet unfortunately I see, there are those who ask answers, that require a question to fit a current the mind set.
    I believe this new revolutionary concept from Jacque and co, is not really that far from our grasp; we just need to learn to appreciate who we really are.
  8. What is the Most funy thing is that its intelligent ppl that will destroy our planet in the end with ther hate or greet and need for money and power witch makes me question who is realy intelegens then 🤔
  9. Nothing but left wing propaganda, proven fully, by the ad prior to the movie calling out the Trump Administration. Pathetic
  10. Moon wood
  11. How can you sustain a global population with no natural predators. All deadly virus kill its host.
  12. I wish you to create your plans, cause I trust you
  13. 1.2k down votes probably flat earthers seeing the fake curvature of the big blue marble.
  14. Maybe this is how the lost civilisation lived.. And they had time to develop their knowledge and skills to get to such a point where they could have built the megaliths of the world and who knows what else.
  15. Maybe I wasn't attntive at that part, but it is unclear to me: how in the world would VP convince the ruling class of today to give up on everything they do today (slave labour, using stupidity of people in their own interests, mass manipulation, pollution, and most importantly, the PROFIT motive)? Will they just say: oh, nice project, let's do it? I give up my factories, my businesses, my banks, my POWER because I believe in VP? Further: how many of you are willing to just give up your cars for the sake of future, knowing exactly that your cars are the main reason of climate change? How many of you are willing to make the smallest change in your lives, anything that takes giving up on your comfort? Come on, let's be realistic. If we want change, that can happen only through WAR AND BLOOD. Just as everyting in human history.
  16. Some parts of this video are interesting but others are a joke.... the explanation of the debt system linked to the central bank is lacking at best and takes a very "american" stance (the girl basically saying it's bad that there's inflation because it steals her job without even saying it s just a tool to help the economy stay afloat... ) or when they talk about democracy and the lack of choice when 1) bipartism doesn't exist everywhere 2) you can change it (as shown by France/Spain) but you gotta stop complaining and move

    ps: the funniest part is probably when the video states that poor countries lose money due to trade rules imposed by richer countries... that's probably why the tariffs are so much lower in the EU (for example) than other countries and that you have "everything but arms" deals for poor countries ... and oh yeah some non-tariff barriers exist but they are mainly to protect the consumer and the workers rights ... this video shows such a lack of facts it's staggering, I loved the idea of The Venus Project but it seems very lacking here :/

    pps: the second part of the video is amazingly interesting with a few debatable details though (such as when it's said we won't have to fight over values when the VP is based on some very peculiar values? so what would happen of those against it?)

    ppps: extensionality seems like an amazing concept... it replaces the possessiveness of love with a new kind of selfishness imo... / otherwise: if you're curious about what they say about purpose check out Camus' Works
  17. How do we start then?
  18. I like the concept but I'm just curious as to how something we consider as a crime today, like murder or homicide, be eradicated by the concepts of this project (they say in the website that they do believe in a world without crime). Humans are not predictable and can kill for any reason (even over a petty argument). Once a human is killed in a TVP-type of society, how would the victim seek justice if there are no police, courthouses and prisons?
  19. Hey Everyone!
    So this documentary among others has inspired me to create a video on simple ways we can start to change ourselves to inevitably change the world around us! My most recent video explains what minor changes we can make to live in a more advanced society consciously and technologically! It means the universe to me for anyone willing to take the time to check it out, truly thank you.

    and I'm Sure wherever your at in life it will help in big and subtle ways! Again Thank you to anyone you has read this, Much LOVE and PEACE <3
    times are changing and it's truly amazing
  20. Fear is a relevant weight constantly on our conscious minds which ages us all.

    Time (money) is the cause of this, while the fear itself is the gravitational pull that forces us down to die.

    We are as individuals,
    grandly that which is far up and beyond our scope of sight past the stars in space.

    We can only understand the relevance in the dimensions of extreme size differentiation through relating to our relationship between us and our very own inner cells which mimic our given efforts in our work that we do for others.

    Our Cells demonstrate the same energy for us as we demonstrate for the dimensional world that we see around us.

    When we do good work and speak openly and true then our metabolism, immune system, mentally spiritual health, basically our entire biological body adapts to keep us alive and healthy.

    A 3 dimensional cell working parallel in between 2 opposite size of universes,
    1 too big to see,
    1 too microscopic to see,

    Both mirroring itself and it’s influence that it shares around from it’s own amount of care and dedication.

    Cells far beneath our skin which are un-viewable to our relative dimensional size of existence to fully study or discover completely to be confident that we know what it is in retrospect to us being limited by the paradox of needing a microscopical lens to see the limit of our relation to that which is far beyond our relative dimensional reach of space and inner space in size. Just as we use a telescope to see systems that appear as a tiny universe to small to see due to the trap of this dimensional warp.
