    Most of what he's saying is text-book history knowledge, it's not like he's saying something that hasn't been "in" since the 1800s.Fix your schools.

    Interesting project, but I don't see that this thought set differs significantly from the state communism we see in North Korea (at its worst!). All of the land in the South Korea belongs to the Party, and the Party belongs to the People.Then you just condemn everyone who opposes you an enemy of the people and be done with them.This man's ethical considerations are also worthy of note; he is a cultural relativist. This means that he does not have a moral backing to say that anything is wrong, other than saying "It's what they do over there". I, on the other hand, think that some actions are clearly wrong (Holocaust, war crimes and so on) and not just a "mere consequence of conditioning". We are responsible for our actions, even if we are all Nazis. There must be some other ethical What he says about language is not entirely correct either. Mathematics is subject to interpretation in the fringes. To deny the central tenents is to deny mathematics overall, however. This does not mean that mathematics (and physics, chemistry aso.) is not subject to interpretation or approximation to the extend that it may pose a problem to the overbearing theory. (Read up on your epistemology.)To create a value-less or value-free langauge has been tried, as well as creating meta-langauges that span all natural languages. This was very popular in the 1970s and most attempts have been concluded as not possible, the rest will never finish (they are not projects that can be finished due to the nature of natural language).He has a good point (also used as title) though; you should not have to be told that you are free. But I don't think people in a functioning democracy needs to be told this in order to feel free, it's just "free point" to political speakers. You could ask, however; does the democracy in USA work, with the inequal distribution of wealth and close to just 50% voter participation?Good point that the use and existence of money is an aid to those who corrupt, but don't you think the problems were there before money was invented? What problems did the invention of money solve? Please, study your history. (Meta paper-money, is another story, but money itself is just a tool.)I should say that I'm European.

    he may not be very popular, but he is right when he said that politicians are the worst of all, unfortunately the have the power to decide, because the public became passive listeners.

    Jacque Fresco believes that people actually experience things that they have not consented to experience. Thus, he is not to be trusted to engineer your future.Who wants a fricking democracy (mob rule)? I can't believe he's actually promoting mob rule...
