Building a World Absent of War, Servitude, Poverty, And One of True Equality

I highly recommend watching this documentary.

“The Choice is Ours” is an
elegantly produced film that promotes “our capacity to invoke positive change in the world, and considers the behavioral and cultural shifts which must take place to make this possible.

“In examining whether our behaviors are determined by human nature, or by absorbing the environment which surrounds us, the film offers clues as to how we can begin to rebuild the reality of our planet from the ground up.”

To build a world absent of war, servitude, poverty, and one of true equality, it’s necessary to build a world in which there would be no more monetary systems, or trade, barter, or any other system of human servitude. All of the earth’s resources would become the common heritage of all the world’s people. And access to the necessities of life would be for all the world’s people.”

Whenever I bring up this topic, I am told it’s utopian. But it’s not utopian, a fanciful vision, because it’s achievable. To respond in this way is simply an excuse for not trying. “The environment shapes our values, our identity, and generates our behavior. If you think we can’t change the world, it just means you’re not one of those who will.”

Fresco says, “And I am suspicious of people that are only motivated by money.” And I am too.
