This is totally what I had in mind when I was preaching about communistic system - ok, not in a whole, but basically. I am totally on board on this! Where I can sign in?

Good concept; stupid self-interested species.

Remember, you need an enlightened culture to make this possible so it may take a few hundred years until this gets to happen.

A culture where values include progress, knowledge and science, and principles that include managing resources for everybody and the planet for a better way of life without harming the planet so much. Seems kind of impossible now that I think about it. =/

Cool concept but big companies that benefit from trashing the environment will defiantly oppose this:( Although this might be one of the only ways of become a sustainable society the will be able to one day reach Kepler 62... overall I don't think intelligent people that have everything to gain with this and nothing to lose would oppose this system:)

Everything looks nice as a concept. In fruition,there would be many unexpected differences, as is the case with anything done by man. (simply because we are the only creatures who expect anything to begin with)

Perhaps one day. I believe that we shall either achieve a system similar to this, or we'll destroy ourselves first. If only there was some unclaimed land somewhere, where visionary people could migrate to and begin a system similar to this for the rest of the world to follow :(

Description

The Venus Project is an idea for a totally new way of running a civilization based not on capitalism but on resources. The economy will depend on the resources available and making things more reliable, efficient, and good living standards for everybody without a non-progressive materialistic society. It's kind of like Earth in Star Trek, but if you want to learn more about it go here Thevenusproject.com please discuss it below about what you think about it with constructive reasoning and about it's possibility and other ideas you guys may have to add to such a brilliant idea.
