Jacque Fresco’s full interview with Larry King, 1974


Back in 1974 Jacque Fresco was told he was a man before his time. Observe this Larry King interview and see for yourself. See that he is not a man before his time but a man trying to change the social culture of his time (and for good reason).

“It would take ten years to change the surface of the Earth. To rebuild the world into a second garden of Eden. The choice lies with you. The stupidity of a nuclear arms race, the development of weapons, trying to solve your problems politically, by electing this political party or that political party. All politics is immersed in corruption. Let me say it again, communism, socialism, fascism, the democrats, the liberals, we want to absolve human beings, women’s lib all organizations that believe in the better life of man. There are no negro problems, or polish problems, or Jewish problems, or Greek problems, or women’s problems there are human problems. So come in to Sociocyberneering and take your part and function. We are not concerned with the divisions of segments of society.” ~Jacque Fresco, Larry King Interview 1974

“I have no notions of a perfect society, I don’t know what that means. I know we can do much better than what we’ve got, I’m no utopian, I’m not a humanist that would like to see everybody living in warmth and harmony: I know that if we don’t live that way, we’ll kill each other and destroy the Earth.” -Jacque Fresco
