    His legacy will survive....and may even thrive,,,,,,unless the pedestal 'we've' created is still holding him up.....in which case....we'll all just sit around complaining about each other for a while ...at least until 'another one' comes along.....Another one with GIANT plans designed to save us and the planet ....

    But we won't listen to him/her either.....our self importance will once again be blocking the path....

    He was a good man with good intentions, kindhearted, and no, he wasn't the Mastermind of The New World Order.

    Don't we already have one? His name is Peter Joseph?

    In 2010, Fresco attempted to trademark the phrase "resource-based economy".[43] The phrase was reviewed and found to be too generic, and the trademark was denied.

    rest in peace

    Makes me wonder why?....Why would JF want to trademark a phrase used by many others....likely, even long before JF himself used it (certainly the concept had been used for millennia). If this is true, then we can say with all honesty, that JF was just a Man....just another human being with feet of clay....another capitalist perhaps?...hoping to cash in....

    People don't listen to Peter Joseph either....even many who hang around this place are clearly not paying attention....or lack the initiative to put PJ's words into any sort of action.... sos ......

    I think people have listened, but as he didn't say much beyond, pass on the word, people got tired of waiting for him to say 'Makes lots of money and start building this brave new world today!".

    Trouble is, we have had those in 'abundance', but folk aren't too keen when they say you have to work really hard to build this brave new world we all want.

    I think saying that it's going to be a lot of really hard work is an Understatement. Building this New World is going to take Prodigious work!

    You're not kidding.

    Humans LOVE making plans and planning.....In these modern times with people so full of themselves, with our 'needs' being met, and our 'wants' taking center stage....its become the execution part that plagues us and any efforts to advance forward.

    This place is a perfect example of people making endless plans without putting much of anything into ACTION.

    IMHO; Everyone can DO something GOOD today....beginning in our own back yards, neighborhoods and communities....if we can pull our heads out of our a$$es, get ourselves away from our TV's and computers long enough to finally recognize that community begins at HOME...
