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.

The plans for the Venus Project offer society a broader spectrum of
choices based on the scientific possibilities inherent in current
technology and direct that knowledge toward a new era of peace and
sustainability for all cultures. Through the implementation of a
resource-based economy, and a multitude of innovative and
environmentally friendly technologies directly applied to the social
system, The Venus Project proposals will dramatically reduce crime,
poverty, hunger, homelessness, and many other pressing problems that
are common throughout the world today.

One of the cornerstones of the organization' s findings is the fact
that many of the dysfunctional behaviors of today's society stem
directly from the dehumanizing environment inherent in the existing
monetary system. Moreover, the currently utilized random
implementation of automation and other technologies have resulted in a
fragmented, self-defeating trend occurring throughout the
manufacturing and high-tech sectors of today's global economy--namely
the technological replacement of human labor by machines. The Venus
Project proposes a social system in which automation and technology
would be intelligently applied and integrated into an overall social
design where the primary function would be to maximize the quality of
life rather than profits. This project also introduces a set of
workable and acceptable human values that are more appropriate and in
balance with our present state of technology.

Sounds great and all, but the website is long on concepts and short on practicalities.
