Is The Venus Project The Next Stage In Human Evolution?

A seismic shift is under way. Against the backdrop of rising temperatures, collapsing ecosystems, and the threat of species extinction, technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics are now moving to transform the global order. Indeed, for the first time in our history, we have the tools and technologies to guide and shape our evolution. But what will this future look like?
I recently spoke with Roxanne Meadows and Nathanael Dinwiddie of The Venus Project to better understand their thoughts on the future. As they explain, the status quo is no longer working. Climate change, social inequality, and technological innovation are now disrupting a market-driven society. The key to resolving these global challenges, they suggest, is rooted in a Resource Based Economy.
The term “Resource Based Economy” was first coined by Jacque Fresco, the founder of The Venus Project. Fresco believed that a Resource Based Economy could support the scientific integration of automating technologies (AI and robotics) and engineering systems in providing the highest possible living standards. Meadows and Dinwiddie suggest that this kind of economy is the next stage in human evolution. But what do they mean?

Zuckerberg, Facebook & Three “Fact-Checkers” Sued For Government Sponsored Censorship
How much of what you believe is going on within the world’s current events is actually true? Do you think you would make different decisions if your perception was missing important bits of information that change any given story? This is an important question right now, as much of what people think is happening comes from mainstream media or “fact-checkers,” and much of the time, it’s only a small piece to the story that doesn’t truly inform people.
Ongoing Facebook censorship is forcing the hand of independent organizations who have had enough of the platform’s allowance of independent “fact-checkers” to decide what is true and not true on Facebook, and also for unjustly destroying the trust these organizations work for years to build.

MSM has been doing that for years. How else do you think they get you clueless morons to believe Trump is bad?

BC once had an excellent resource based economy, until the socialists wiped it out.

Sounds like he is promoting a pro-Trump post, Dems. want to keep the economy shutdown and Trump wants everyone to get back to work to make money.

The top 1% includes most government employees in the Western world. What does this tell you?
That may be true in Canada, but certainly not in the U.S.

The only employee of the Federal government whose government pay is top 1% is, arguably, the President. Not senators, not Supreme Court justices.

I think this is maybe more of a whine than a fact.

We have a Sunshine list. All the government employees at all levels that make over $100 000. A few years ago the little city down the line that would be the equivalent of a county seat(pop90 000) had s1x people just in their fire department making in excess of $100 000.

"Across the country, you were in the top 1 per cent of all earners in 2015 if your employment income was at least $225,409."

-- Globe and Mail

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/canada-1-per-cent-highest-paid-workers-compare/article36383159/

So, kids, is $100,000 MORE than $225,409, or is $100,000 LESS than $225,409?

Is %293 000 higher than $225409? Or is math too hard for you?
OK, that's one.

One.

Here's what you posted earlier:

"The top 1% includes most government employees in the Western world. What does this tell you?"

If one is "most government employees" where you are, that means you got a total of two. Go ahead and pay 'em a million each, it won't make a dent in the budget.

You overplayed your hand because you're a butthurt whiner. I called your bluff. You're sitting on a busted flush. Take your licking like a man.

Or I guess you could concoct some retarded whimper like "I wasn't speaking literally. They still make too much money!"

You"re right. I should have said many instead of most to keep the nitpickers from getting their panties in a knot.

You should have said "a few" if you can only list one.

Government employees are usually paid pretty well in the First World. That's a good thing.

I know you don't like it, but you cannot run a 21st-century country with buckboards and six-shooters. It requires massive maintenance.

In the Third World, government employees are paid pretty well too. By bribes, that being the only way anybody ever gets anything done.

Bribes work pretty good here as well. Only they are not called that in polite company. See SNCLavlin. WE charity.
There is mo reason for government employees to be making significantly more more money and bennies than the equivalent private sector employees. Especially since their hiring is not based on merit but quotas.
Also read the article wally linked on the California fires to see what union firefighters are paid in California.
