    I made a topic about The Venus Project a while ago, i hadnt seen this one. Maybe someday we can live in the world the Zeitgeist movement proposes. Hopefully.

    Resource Based Economics in a nutshell:

    Abolish money and then we can have some kind of idealised Star Trek collectivist system where everyone shares and is nice to each other and greed and crime magically cease to exist.


    In essence, junk the Price System without really thinking through the ramifications of replacing the price system function with a person's judgement. The self interested parties will eventually seize this great power for themselves. Individual choices aren't perfect, but they're at least more local than global.
    I don't think the author should make the reader do that much work - Kevin J. Anderson
    We think we've updated 'Dune' for a modern readership without dumbing it down.- Brian Herbert
    There’s an unwritten compact between you and the reader. If someone enters a bookstore and sets down hard earned money(energy) for your book, you owe that person some entertainment and as much more as you can give. - Frank Herbert
