Jacque Fresco (born March 13, 1916) is a self-educated social engineer, industrial designer, author, lecturer, futurist, inventor, and the creator of The Venus Project. Fresco has worked as both designer and inventor in a wide range of fields spanning biomedical innovations and integrated social systems. He believes his ideas would maximally benefit the greatest number of people and he states some of his influence stems from his formative years during the Great Depression.
The Venus Project was started in the mid-1970s by Fresco and his partner, Roxanne Meadows. The film Future by Design was produced in 2006 describing his life and work. Fresco writes and lectures extensively on subjects ranging from the holistic design of sustainable cities, energy efficiency, natural resource management and advanced automation, focusing on the benefits it will bring to society.
A great documentary about the way we should be living once we get over needing a government and the corp(s)e-rations devouring the planet and people with it.
As seen on Zeitgeist 2, Jaques Fresco shows common sense not too polluted with the stupidness of todays society by bringing us some real things that can be achieved easily, cheaply, super strong and beautiful buildings, vehicles and living enviroments.
