â€œWar is the supreme failure of bridging the differences between nations,â€ according to the creator of a social model called "the Venus Project" - American futurist and inventor Jacque Fresco.
Fresco also thinks a resource-based economy is the key factor to preserving world peace.
â€œDemocracy is a con game, it is a word invented to outplay people, to make them accept a given institution. All institutions sing â€˜we are freeâ€™. The minute you hear â€˜freedomâ€™ or â€˜democracyâ€™ - watch out, because in a truly free nation, no one has to tell you that youâ€™re free,â€ Fresco said.
He believes â€œIt is not that people are good or bad, they are raised in an aberrant or twisted environment.â€
â€œSocial change cannot come above the intellect,â€ said Fresco answering a question about the current economic crisis in the US, â€œit comes about by people suffering. And the more people are related to that, the more they lose respect for an existing government. They will seek another direction. If there are too many people who seek a new direction, then the existing government calls upon the army and police to manage society - that is called fascism.â€
