Jacque Fresco

Crime is based upon need, making money.  People sell drugs to make money.  But if everybody is cared for, they don't sell drugs and if there's no money you can't sell drugs even if you wanted to.  There'd be no such thing as gambling, prostitution, or selling out, or paying off a senator or a governor.  There are no senators, there are no governors so you can't pay them off.  If you take away the basis or the condition that generate abhorrent behavior, you don't have abhorrent behavior.

Move aside Ebola, smallpox, and AIDS; make room for narcolepsy. I would become shunned and avoided. Perhaps the people at the casino thought that this fatigue disease was contagious. Just because I yawn and you yawn shortly after doesn’t mean that you have suddenly been infected with narcolepsy. It would be silly if they had in fact thought this.
