Read the proposal behind 'The Venus Project' and give critical feedback!
Part 2 "Who will secure resources? Who will do jobs that robots can't do? How will you get people to learn things?" Yet another one, but in this one i'd like to point out the notion that people thoughout history have never done anything that wasn't motivated by financial gain as if the adquisition of property was a divine mission of man, an end by itself. A prime example of a capitalist mindset. All the while, adquisition is necessarily based on production, wich is only a means of the reproduction of life. Finally, as a response to op. There are no real flaws in the logic of VP, as there are no flaws or legitimate criticism about the principles of Historic Materialism. That is why it took a huge propaganda machine to fight the ideas off, and i suspect this propaganda, and the social pressures it ensues are the reason VP disguises itself as something different from communism.

It is Communism rebranded and as such i find nothing wrong about it, because i understand that Historic materialism and the communist society proposed by Marx & Engels have nothing to do with the "Communist" society implemented by the USSR, wich are so blatantly demonised as the same by (sorry) brainwashed Americans. If one reads The German Ideology, this becomes undeniable. Responses: To Philip Crume: "The core principle of socialism is the expansion of the "public commons" into private ownership. The Venus Project IS socialism. The only thing that distinguishes it from communism is that it isn't advocating the dictatorship of the proletariat." The core principle of socialism is the abolition of private ownership and not the expansion of anything into private ownership, Historic Materialism is, as every other complete and worthy vision of the world, self-sealing and unfalsifiable from any other vision of the world, which, as i see by the way you are using the concept of proletariat, what i believe you are doing. "Raise the money needed to buy a very large plot of land and create your own money-less experimental society." Another example of what i stated above. "I'd be most interested in how you deal with incentive motives." Now this has been a mayor subject in criticism to the VP. The answer i find to it is: There is no "incentive" as such in a capitalist society. The adquisition of money cannot be seen solely as a motivation to labor, it is currently, the means of the reproduction of life for the individual of a capitalist society and as such it a NECESSITY. From this one could say that capitalism doesn't operate by incentive, but through coercion. Nice world ain't it?
