10/15/07: Forbes.com posed two questions to Jacque, then published them on their website:
Jacque Fresco On The Future
Interviewed by Noni Durrani 10.15.07, 6:00 PM ET
What's one thing you were sure would happen, but didn't?
I was sure that Forbes.com would ask more significant questions to a futurist about the future. Perhaps something like, What is a positive direction for the future to work toward in order to eliminate many of the problems we face today?
What is needed is the intelligent management of Earth's resources. If we really wish to put an end to our ongoing international and social problems we must eventually declare Earth and all of its resources as the common heritage of all the world's people. Earth is abundant with plentiful resources. Our practice of rationing resources through monetary control is no longer relevant and is counter-productive to our survival.
Today we have access to highly advanced technologies. But our social and economic system has not kept up with our technological capabilities that could easily create a world of abundance, free of servitude and debt. This could be accomplished with the infusion of a global, resource-based civilization where all goods and services are available without the use of money, credit, barter or any other form of debt or servitude.
What's something that totally surprised you?
Whatever happens in the world is real, what one thinks should have happened is projection. We suffer more from our fictitious illusion and expectations of reality.
