Utopian fantasy
30 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

The whole business with the Venus Project is funny; it may be admirable in its goals but it envisions a ridiculously unrealistic future. Yes, today humanity faces many problems, and the Zeitgeist movement does identify a lot of them. Apart from that, it fails to identify actual causes, quotes no actual research and completely ignores human nature. Better societies are built incrementally; social engineering feats like those envisioned by the Venus Project are doomed to disaster, and history has plenty of examples. This short film is mildly interesting as science fiction, and a little more interesting as moral philosophical musings. But it cannot be taken seriously as anything remotely possible to happen.
