Jacque Fresco - Technocracy, City Strategies, Sourcing Information - Feb.9, 2011

Hi fellow

I'm stuck in this video with one sentence.

min 5.10


"We have no evidence to support ideas that were put out there for free"

- Does anybody knows more in depth what Jacque meant with this sentence?


Thanks

I would say ask Roxanne about this one. It seems complicated and it's important to get it right.

My best interpretation, based on what he says in the whole video, is: "We have no evidence to support the notion that ideas should be put out (in the public domain) for free". But still, ask Roxanne to make sure we have it right, and then post the answer here. :)

Thank you Lizardman :)

I've already sent the question to Roxanne but as they now are very busy with the documentary she is going to answer later, after the documentary will be released.

Thanks for your answer, by the way I'll keep thinking about it and let's see if we can arrive at the most correct conclusion asking more opinion to the other users ;)

The sentence seems a bit broken but I am trying to rephrase it like I understood it (similar to lizardman):
I don't think it's a good idea to just put out new inventions for everybody to use in his or her sense. Now comes the reason why ...
Then he states that you can always use technology in a good and in a bad way. You can use a hammer to put a picture on the wall or you can use the same hammer to harm somebody when hitting him or her on the head. So if people do not have a saner value system it is very dangerous to give them new technology because they could misuse it – e.g. the atom bomb. Another reason is that you need to know who created the technology so you can ask him questions to understand it better.
So Fresco does not see any evidence that putting out ideas in the sense of new inventions for everybody to use has an advantage that is bigger than the disadvantages. Also new technology would patch the current social and economic system for a short amount of time and afterwards the problems could be even more severe. If you create a system to use oil more efficiently and let everybody use the system for free it will take more time until there is no oil left. But it does not deal with the problem that the oil will run out eventually. By doing so social pressures would be lessened but the overall problem of people dying because of using money to regulate the distribution of goods and services with all of its ramifications, like greed for example, would still exist.

Does this explanation make sense to you?
