The Choice is Ours
The Choice is Ours is a new documentary that has just been released by the team at the Venus Project, founded by the 99-year-old industrial designer and futurist Jacque Fresco. Similar in style to Zeitgeist: Moving Forward, it is divided into four parts, each exploring different aspects of the world we live in and how they relate to our potential future.
From the video description:
"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 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."
