Paradise or Oblivion

 Paradise or Oblivion documentary

ParadiseParadise or Oblivion elucidates the root causes of the current value-system disorders we see in the world, as well as the detrimental symptoms caused by our established socio-economic system. It advocates the implementation of a new system, updated to present-day knowledge, a system called by the futurist, inventor and industrial designer Jacque Fresco; a Resource-Based Economy.

This documentary explains why it is necessary for the human race to outgrow the extremely dated and inefficient methods of politics, law, business, and all the other “establishment” notions of human affairs, and begin to use methods of science, combined with high-technology, to provide for the needs of all the world’s people. A Resource-Based Economy is not based on the opinions of the political and financial elite, or on illusionary democracies, it is instead based on maintaining a dynamic equilibrium with the planet, ultimately providing an abundance for all people.

Paradise or Oblivion introduces the viewer to a more appropriate value system, one that is required to enable a caring and holistic approach to benefit human civilization. The alternative presented surpasses the need for a monetary-based, controlled, and scarcity- oriented environment, such as the one which we find ourselves in today. It proposes a vision of what the future can be if we apply what we already know to achieve a sustainable new civilization. It calls for a straightforward redesign of our culture in which the age-old inadequacies of war, poverty, hunger, debt and unnecessary human suffering are viewed not only as avoidable, but as totally unacceptable.

Today many people believe what is needed is a higher sense of ethical standards and the enactment of international laws to assure a sustainable global society. This film asserts that anything less than a total redesign will just result in a continuation of the same catalog of problems inherent in today’s world. It explains how even if the most ethical people in the world were elected to political office, without sufficient resources we would still have many of the same problems we have today. When a few nations control most of the world’s resources and the bottom line is profit, the same cycle of events will prevail.

Paradise or Oblivion explains that if we really wish to put an end to our ongoing international and social problems we must declare Earth and all of its resources as the common heritage of all the world‘s people. Earth is abundant with plentiful resources. Our practice of rationing resources through monetary control is no longer relevant and is now counter productive to our survival. Today we have access to highly advanced technologies. But our socio-economic system has not kept up with our technological capabilities, which could easily create a world of abundance, free of debt and servitude.

This documentary asserts that this could be accomplished with the implementation of a global, resource-based civilization. Simply stated a resource-based economy utilizes existing resources rather than money and provides an equitable method of distribution in the most humane and efficient manner for all the world’s people. It is a system in which all goods and services are available without the use of money, credit, barter or any other form of debt or servitude. One of the aims of this new social design is to encourage a new incentive system, one that is no longer directed towards the shallow and self- centered goals of personal wealth, property, and power. These new incentives would encourage people toward self- fulfillment and creativity both materially and spiritually.

Paradise or Oblivion proposes a feasible plan of action for social change, one that works towards a peaceful and sustainable global civilization. It outlines an alternative to strive toward where human rights are no longer paper proclamations but a way of life. How do we get from ‘here’ to ‘there’? Well it most likely wont be by the part of the governments of the world. Governments never advocate real social change, the established order tends to perpetuate itself. Unfortunately it may take an economic breakdown and people becoming disillusioned with their leaders before they begin to seek an alternative social direction.
