  1. megan do yo know what does the sign ? means.... ????? and jake maybe you'r open minded...do you know what is marketing? to better satisfy the needs of the consumer, to create new producs...to anticipate future needs...and for that, science is determinand. For example, nobody ws thinkin` 50 years ago that sony can sell 3 inches cd's, or apple 16 gb iphone...anyway, you`r pathetic..
  2. The main cause of the financial crisis is instability in the financial sector including the firms, institutions and markets which comprise it .It will be worse than the Great Depression ?
  3. Aham, maybe you'r right.. but no one is free, belive me...None are so hopelessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free.(Goethe) We are not free, only some actions that we do make us feel so..some people can think free but not all, the most are manipulated.. Nothing is free, we pay for all thinks..with money, time,labour,etc... but I don't want to debate with you, I started this topic cause I want to find some different mentalities of the people..to meditate a bit of other things, not only money money money...sure that money is important, but this shouldn't enslave us
  4. http://quicksilverscreen.com/watch?video=52571 This is the link where you can watch the documentary (for those that talk without knowledge) the 2nd part is more important ( 1 h->2h ) the first is about the enslaving of the people by the banks,and in special by the debt... nowadays Money - debt=0 => Money=Debt ... if debt=0... there is no money...niiiceee
  5. It's not fiction duuh,why should I lie:) ? http://www.bread.org/learn/hunger-basics/h...ernational.html and you find other pages witht he info...yes they shouldn't make so many children..such a pity to die 5 children..better to make one and die and then will be 1 killed in 25 sec
  6. You are totally right..but the damn children don't choose the dictatorships,system,country,family... The problem is david, that the poverty increased in the last 50 years, after they "were helped"... but the poverty there it's not my problem, I hope that the time will solve that.i'll go now,buy some cigarettes..damn
  7. Ok man, I just wanted to see people opinion for an extreme change. you probably don't know about this "project" ..I don't belive in it, it's to strange for me, I put all my hope in the free market economy because I'll work in it 40-50 years from now on so don't blame me,the project is not my idea, I don't work for them(it's kinda interesting but no) the zeitgeist documentary opened a bit my f*c*in mind.. Enjoy your meal, and I tell you sincere..every day more than 16000 children die from hunger,1 per 5 sec..
  8. I don't say that the project will happen but it's something else...The Venus Project=Utopia, ideal community... you say that free internet makes millions unemployed the technology made billions unemployed.. in industry,agriculture and all the work sectors not this is important... in the future 70% jobs will disappear and other will rise..but the rapid changes in the life make poverty..not all the poeple can hip it up ( At least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day ) this is very sad..
  9. Yes..money is an universal trade object...world wide recognized..but some scientists try to make a better worldI(they say)..Look here: The Venus Project presents a bold, new direction for humanity that entails nothing less than the total redesign of our culture. There are many people today who are concerned with the serious problems that face our modern society: unemployment, violent crime, replacement of humans by technology, over-population and a decline in the Earth's ecosystems. As you will see, The Venus Project is dedicated to confronting all of these problems by actively engaging in the research, development, and application of workable solutions. Through the use of innovative approaches to social awareness, educational incentives, and the consistent application of the best that science and technology can offer directly to the social system, The Venus Project offers a comprehensive plan for social reclamation in which human beings, technology, and nature will be able to coexist in a long-term, sustainable state of dynamic equilibrium. ( source www.thevenusproject.com ) They say the earth has enough resources for all and that the technologie is so advanced..we can produce as much as we want..(for example energy,food,etc)... Yes I think that some things can be for free.. for example food,electricity, the internet..and others..We pay for the internet now, but I'm sure that this will disappear in the future. Anyway..today 97% of money in US is scriptural money..we can't see it .. and money doesn't exist,it's only an invention by the federal reserve to resolve the inflation,crizes, and to assure "a better world". Today...the us and the whole world try to resolve the depresion with invented money... billions of $ are given to the biggest companies in America for example..but the colaps of smaller entities is not far.. so, the fed controls everything: the money,the debt ,the whole system..but we can't do nothing..we are only their slaves
  10. I watched 2 days ago an interesting documentary Zeitgeist Addendum and I saw in it that people try to build a world without the monetary system,without banks and investments,debts..and others...if I think like an economist,this is impossible..but as a dreamer, it can be possible in hundreds of years..
  11. Hmm...the project, yes the documentary zeitgeist..the both shocked me...zeitgeist is the best documentary i've seen..and I watched it 2 days ago til 3 o'clock in the night...but I don't think that the venus project is possible with the actual human art of thinking...My opinion is that the project is like the communism without money, the difference is that the venus project is based on resources. But the resources in our planet are rare...i'm studying economy at the university and that is what i'm being teached. Resources < Needs of people... so we cannot provide the well being for 8 billion people with the resources that we have. I have watched the documentary and I have seen that there is enough natural energy and that the people don't need the fosils..but this solar,eolian etc that should be made...without investments it's impossible. And I also think that this system based only on resources, without money...it's like an utopia...People need to achive goals, to have a target in their lifes..they cannot leave without something that make them work hard,develope their souls ..their personality. Let's suppose that the robots make for us(humans) 90% of the work..but what will people do? who will compose music, who will direct movies, who will wright a good roman...nobody..Only 5% of the people do their job because they really like that. What will happen with the schools,universities..good teachers ? In 2-3 generations all will be lost..I have seen photos with the houses,transportaton and other things involved in this project...but I think they should test a bunch of people..put them inside,with their children and ensure them all their needs ..and if they resist more than 50-60 years..the project is succesfull, but I think that people that leave in such conditions will have no progress, they'll be like vegetables.. I don't want to make them that belive in the project to influence in a wrong way...what if you are such one..watch walle movie..a great animation,I think it;s the best ever..and you'll see how people will look after 100-200 years of VENUS PROJECT
