Interview: Jacque Fresco on Singularity 1 On 1 - Apply the Methods of Science to the Social System…-venus-project/
Jacque Fresco is a futurist, inventor, social engineer, visionary and technician, best known for the Venus Project. In the Future By Design documentary about Fresco's life and ideas, Emmy winning filmmaker William Gazecki called the 97-year-old Jacque "a modern day Da Vinci". Others have called him "a new Buckminster Fuller."

Now, I have to admit that I really like Jacque as a person -- he just seems to have a unique combination of wisdom, life experience, sense of humor and personal humility. I also admire his multi-disciplinary accomplishments and his seemingly never-ending enthusiasm and scientific curiosity. This, however, doesn't mean that I agree with him on everything that he says or proposes, and you will see a few of those moments during our 72 minute interview. At any rate, best thing you can do is to watch the interview in full, read Jacque's book The Best That Money Can't Buy, and judge for yourself.

During my conversation with Jacque Fresco, we cover a variety of interesting topics such as: how he sees himself; scarcity and money as the root of all evil; the Venus Project; the need for unambiguous language; why he claims that most people are "unsane"; whether philosophers are bullshitters; the clash of civilizations and the nation state; education and the scientific method; the modern culture of bread and spectacles; Resource Based Economy; Ray Kurzweil, artificial intelligence and the technological singularity; The Zeitgeist Movement; Ayn Rand and objectivism; death and cryonics... ~Nikola Danaylov aka Socrates
