This eye opening film The Choice is Ours explores the alternate reality where our civilisation unites to fundamentally restructure social arrangements and focus our technology on building a peaceful, sustainable and productive future for humanity.
The overall venture is called ‘The Venus Project‘ and it’s the lifes work of American industrial engineer and renowned futurist Jacque Fresco. Alongside notable scientists, authors and philosophers, Fresco paints an optimistic future for us to orientate towards. With full-scale models and detailed blueprints Fresco weaves invaluable wisdom into a powerful vision of human potential and the result is remarkable.
So far, this is the closest we’ve come to creating a blueprint for achieving a sustainable world civilisation.

It is now highly feasible to take care of everyone on earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary, war is obsolete. It is a matter of converting the high technology from weaponry to livingry. If realized, this historically greatest design revolution will joyously elevate all humanity to unprecedented heights.” — Buckminster Fuller
