The Venus Project - The Choice is Ours (Parts I & II of a 3 part series)
The Venus Project presents The Choice Is Ours
This new 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 and 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.
Part I of this three-part documentary series explores the determinants of behavior to dispel the myth of “human nature”, demonstrating how environment shapes behavior. Part II illustrates how our social structures impose our values and behaviors, demonstrating that our global monetary system is obsolete and increasingly insufficient to meet the needs of most people. Part III, to be released later this year, will depict the vision of The Venus Project to build an entirely new world from the ground up - a “redesign of the culture”, where all enjoy a high standard of living, free of servitude and debt, while also protecting the environment.
