Imagining a World Without Money (Repost)

Visionary and self-taught architect, Jacques Fresco explains his ideal world that incorporates a resource-based system. No money, or other form of bartering exchange. A world without money is more than just imagination; it is very possible. Jacque Fresco believes if we decide to do this today, all things about this world can be achieved within only 10 years!
The term and meaning of a Resource-Based Economy was originated by Jacque Fresco. It is a holistic social and economic system in which all goods and services are available without the use of money, credits, barter or any other system of debt or servitude. All resources become the common heritage of all of the inhabitants, not just a select few. The premise upon which this system is based is that the Earth is abundant with plentiful resource; our practice of rationing resources through monetary methods is irrelevant and counter productive to our survival.
Modern society has access to highly advanced technology and can make available food, clothing, housing and medical care; update our educational system; and develop a limitless supply of renewable, non-contaminating energy. By supplying an efficiently designed economy, everyone can enjoy a very high standard of living with all of the amenities of a high technological society.
A resource-based economy would utilize existing resources from the land and sea, physical equipment, industrial plants, etc. to enhance the lives of the total population. In an economy based on resources rather than money, we could easily produce all of the necessities of life and provide a high standard of living for all.

Ron: My summary of this discussion:
Work in our society is socially conditioned slavery. Machinery and automation can replace the need for human labour. As technology grows the need for humans in the work force will continually be diminished. Human employment is a result of the monetary system. The monetary system prevents humans from accepting the fruits of technological development because automation replaces human labour thus creating more and moreÂ unemployed people who then lack a money income. About 90% of all occupations could be phased out by machines, freeing humans to live their life without servitude for that is the point of technology. But our monetary structures requires that we must work for income and this blocks progress. Why? Because humans need jobs in order to survive. Sooo, our monetary system must go so that we can be free and technology can become generally available.
It is the refusal of most people to contemplate, let alone seek to deal with these matters that has led humanity to its current crisis situation. Sooo, the choice is: make the mental and emotional effort to understand the money meme and then to reject it; OR continue to exist in a growing shower of shit created by the banksters AND justified by their bought and paid for governments and mainstream media corporations; and their erudite minions and henchmen whose comfortable lives depend upon maintaining the illusion that money is necessary for civilised life.
Those who think they cannot live without money; and are unable or unwilling to even to make the effort to force their governments and money creators and suppliers to be responsible for what they do, are slaves and will remain so.
Those who cling to the old money paradigm need to realise that at the core of our so-called Capitalist global economic system are two mechanisms. First, the usurious monetary mechanism. Second, and symbiotically co-dependent with that money mechanism, is the labour for income mechanism. The global economic system is based on human beings selling their labour as a commodity in the open market so that they can then buy and consume the production of that market.
The reason the banking matrix controllers have concealed the true meaning and implications of the rapid uptake of mechanisation, automation, computerisation and electronics (robotics) in human workplaces in the last century is that the steady decline in available paid employment for people heralds the end of the fictional fiat money creation and usurious fractional reserve banking systems that have held humanity in thrall and enslavement to the matrix controllers for centuries. But the future is here. See eg: Artificial intelligence – can we keep it in the box? http://theconversation.edu.au/artificial-intelligence-can-we-keep-it-in-the-box-8541

If people do not have the option to work for a living because paid employment is unavailable, then the monetary system as we know it, is finished, and the capitalist economic system based on it must implode also. No one can buy goods if they don’t earn money or get given money by the welfare state. Similarly, companies and businesses cannot afford to produce goods and services if consumers have no purchasing power to buy them. Lastly, governments will cease to be able to collect income, sales and other taxes and charges sufficient to continue the Welfare State if only a minority of people are working, earning money, paying taxes and consuming.
Sooo, as the need for workers declines below the “tipping point” at which the state ceases to be able to take enough money from those in paid employment to provide adequate “welfare” payments to the unemployed and their dependents, this jerrybuilt system breaks down. As that happens those who control the corporations that own the robots and machines will decide who lives and who dies and whether the process will be quick or not.
This situation underlies the matrix controllers’ desire to eliminate the bulk of the human population of the planet. Billions of human workers are no longer “needed”. That is why the banksters are currently arranging the collapse of the global economic system.
Once you’ve digested the fact that the old employment for money syndrome cannot be sustained and is on the way out VERY SOON, because machines will do the work, have a look at the positive technologies that will become available as soon as there ceases to be a monetary advantage in suppressing them. For instance the Keshe Foundation plasma technologies will soon be changing many, many aspects of our world. See eg: http://www.keshefoundation.org/en/
Similarly, 3D printing technologies are about to turn manufacturing on its head and empower local communities to make much of the things needed for a good life. See eg:
