The Choice is Ours is a film by The Venus Project, it explores many aspects of our society and sets about rethinking the possibilities available to us in our world, dispelling the myth of so called “Human Nature”, insisting that it is our environment which shapes our behaviour and shows us what type of world we could live in given the motivation to improve.
We learn of the social structures which are currently in place and how they impose our values and behaviours, revealing how our monetary system us obsolete and increasingly insufficient with regards to the needs of most people around the world. We see how most of humanity is inspired by visions of global unity and peace but yet we have never truly achieved this, even though we are perceived to be technically advanced, it seems our values and behaviors are not. Leaving the possibility of an optimistic future in stark contrast to our current social, economic, and environmental dilemmas.
Featuring many interviews from notable scientists, media professionals, authors, and other thinkers we learn of the vision of The Venus Project and how we could plan to build an entirely new world from the ground up.
