What is Directivism?


1. A theory or system of social organization that advocates the elimination of all forms of currency as well as advocating the Direct and Proportional Democratic management of resources as common heritage of all children of mother earth; creating abundant automated distribution of all commodities and services to all people equally.
2. The creation of a resource based economic system built around the model of a national consumer cooperative.
3. (in Directivist theory) The Dharmic stage of society following the Capitalist and Communist Monetary societies that dominated The Age of Pisces. Directivism is a transition from Monetarism towards The Dharmic, Enlightened, Ascended, and Transcended Societies.


1. An advocate of Directivism.
2. A Directivist is a member of a group that advocates Directivism.

3. Of, promoting, or practicing Directivism.
4. Directivist Of, belonging to, or constituting a Directivist group.

Directivism in detail; Directivism as stated is a new theory that favors an end to Material Obsession and Attachment. In the current Aeon of Pisces we see a sickness that has over taken humanity. This sickness is materialism, and the symptoms are attachment to things that are temporary and not long lasting. In this Aeon people are more concerned with obtaining material things and temporary material satisfaction then developing their consciousness. Further this rampant materialism symbolized by money and banking has cut us off from our natural connection to each other and to mother earth. Directivists believe that we are all one people who are children of a great mother the earth. We believe the earth has given us many gifts which have been stolen from us by politicians and sold to individuals who horde them for personal gain. For example food is constantly being horded, supermarkets are filled with food yet there is still people who go hungry. When food goes unsold it is simply thrown away, it doesn’t go to feed the hungry because they don’t have a piece of paper called money in hand to get it. Directivists believe as long as money exists things like Homelessness and Hunger will always exist. For Directivists the solution is to simply eliminate the banks, corporations, financial institutions, and money and create an economic system based on the DIRECT and INTELLIGENT management of RESOURCES.

Under a Resource Based Economic model such as Directivism all the resources of Mother Earth shall be managed in a Direct and Proportionally Democratic manner. Meaning that all production would occur in relation to the actual demand of what is wanted. All citizens would hold Direct Democratic Authority over the means of production. Production itself would be automated in a way that’s in harmony with the earth and facilitation committees would act as the ultimate oversight to keep automation and cybernated systems under control. All Input, Output, Distribution, and Recycling process of production would become automated with machines crunching the numbers with human oversight. With society as a whole oriented towards a state of harmony with one another a new set of social priorities would set in. Humanity would once again be free to pursue Higher Knowledge and Quest for Enlightened Consciousness an eternal search that has always been the characteristic of humanity as a whole. Our nature is curiosity and it is modern day materialist society telling us to shop, Shop, Shop that has convinced us that we don’t need to seek higher knowledge. A Directivist advocates this pursuit of knowledge and self betterment over a consumer mentality. A Directivist seeks answers beyond just what things like the Scientific Method can provide. For Directivists The Scientific Method can only provide answers based on what we can see. For The Directivist the Intuitive Method of actual and direct experience leads to Rationalization, Understanding, and Conclusion. Just as the Scientific Method of Observation, Theory, Evidence, also leads to Conclusion its probably for this reason that in India The Intuitive Method was used to discover Gravity centuries before it was discovered by The Observed (Scientific) Method. For the Directivist the ideal future is an enlightened one that is free of all the monetary ideas such as Monarchy, Capitalism, Mercantilism, Communism, Socialism, Fascism, etc. which governed The Age of Pisces. For The Directivist dreams of the next Aeon of Aquarius being the Age of a Dharmic Directivist society which can give rise to an Enlightened and Ascended Age of humanity unified and seeking Global Transcendence. The Directivist believes Money creates Hate, Fear and Envy, while the ideal Directivist Society creates Loving Compassion. The Directivist seeks to nurture the positive emotions of humanity and divorce all the negative emotions which are characteristic of this Aeon. If this sounds like you then perhaps you’re a Directivist!

  1. Thank you so much for this enlightened article! Personally, I think the link to an elevated consciousness have been missing in the general description of a resource-based economy. And the emphasis on the scientific method without talking about intuition has been not quite right for me. I am a directivist! Even though I’ve never heard the term before….

    1. Brother if you truly do you like Directivism better then Venus Project’s Mechnocracy then i would encourage you to withdraw your support of their model of RBE. Perhaps the most recent article defining RBE would make a better article for the About area. As well perhaps provide a link to our site as well. www.TheResourceBasedEconomy.org

      1. Dear brother! I don’t, and will never ever, take sides. Taking sides is what has led the world into silly never ending wars. Haven’t you heard about the spiritual notion of “the third perspective”? It means that there is something that transcends the shallow concept of “taking sides”. It means that you can view any conflict from a third perspective. You take a step back and view both sides opinions and find out that, well, their differences are minor, and silly, and ridiculous, and that the likeness between the two humans really transcends any difference. If a resource-based economy ever sees light on this planet there will always be different opinions about it and everyone will never ever totally agree on everything. If you think that will be the case, you will have to be the one ruling the world, with atom bombs in both your hands.

        All that said, I do personally agree with the notion that humans shall be the one in control on this planet, controlling the machines, and not the machines controlling the humans. To be honest, I don’t believe Mr. Fresco have any other vision.

        If you want to continue to post here, I beg you to develop in yourself the skill of the third perspective. Thank you.

        1. Well i don’t have a problem with this be a neutral place to discuss things. But to that end you should at least provide a Neutral Definition that doesn’t favor either side for the main page.

          1. Yes, this is the primary point of this webpage, to be a neutral webpage about what is called a ‘resource-based economy’. And I have now moved the info about Fresco, TVP and TZM to the bottom of the page. I would like to write more about the origins of a resource-based economy, except I haven’t found any more info on it anywhere. So, to my knowledge, Fresco was the first person who brought it up, and suggested it as a new societal system. But, I will update that info when I get new info on it. I can look more into your website, but if you want to give me a resume on The Promethean Workers Association and how it relates to the origins of a resource-based economy, please do.

            Fresco also want’s to be challenged, and not be the ‘be all end all’ when it comes to this. To me, ‘the resource-based economy’ is the overlying concept, and TVP is one possibility within RBE. I think this also is Fresco’s notion on this. And that is what I want this website to reflect. The Zeitgeist Movement states clearly that they are ‘the activist arm’ of The Venus Project. I think it would be healthier if they changed their mission to be ‘an activist arm of RBE’ with TVP as one possibility.

            I have also NEVER felt from Fresco that he has monopoly on this concept, quite the contrary. I feel he want’s the whole world to work together to develop RBE on the planet. He says himself that he is only an inventor with ideas. He upholds the scientific method, and I see nothing wrong with that. Science has developed into researching ‘spiritual’ and mental phenomena as well, and also proving their effect. Heck, quantum physics even says this is all an illusion dependent on our consciousness. What more do you need? Neither Fresco or Joseph are fully updated on this, I can tell, but they are not ‘against’ anything that is for the best of Humanity.

          2. I’m going to have to reply to everything else later since it requires me to go through his literature and give you quotes from Jacques own books.

            Well if your looking for a neutral place to start with it go to wikipedia under “NATURAL RESOURCE ECONOMICS” in fact thats where the term “RESOURCE BASED ECONOMY” comes from. Also check out “GIFT ECONOMY” and you maybe also interested to check out the movement he used to be part of “TECHNOCRACY” they have several video’s on YouTube explainning what they believe. All those pretty much are where RBE was developed out of but mainly it was from “Natural Resource Economics”. All he did was repackage the terminology from a Natural Resource Economy he added Based to get Natural Resource Based Economy. Then he dropped Natural from the beginning of the term and presto he got “Resource Based Economy”.

            The Promethean Workers Association started talking about creating a Non Monetary system well before we had used the term RBE. Check out Death Of The Dark Aeon and Birth of The New Aeon by Sidney Martinez. He talks in that about eliminating banks, money, and so on and the social changes that must be demanded during transition. We called it Directivisation at the time its only recently we’ve adopted the term “Resource Based Economy” but i will say we already believed in the economic system without knowing it existed. So when we encountered the ideas we at first naturally considered joinning our forces with The Zeitgeist Movement. Upon closer study, research, debate, discussion, and meditation we found this could not be possible since several other of our existing ideas were incompatible with The Zeitgeist Movement. So its why we’ve choosen to remain an independent movement while at the same time adopting Resource Based Economics which is really a colorful way or saying NATURAL RESOURCE ECONOMY. Both terms NATURAL RESOURCE ECONOMY and RESOURCE BASED ECONOMY sound great to me =)

            Ok and last point as far as Jacques not wanting a monopoly i beg to differ. What about the fact that he filed a claim with The U.S. Patent Office in September 17th of this year to TRADEMARK the term RESOURCE BASED ECONOMY? If his trademark goes through he can sue anyone else who doesn’t use that term as he defines it.

            Go here to see the filing for yourself with the US Patent Office:


            Also if he’s not trying to have a monopoly why did Roxanne Meadows give a Cease and Desist order to The Resource Based Economy Collective? She told them they had to stop using the name for their group since they were Trademarking it. We are fighting to keep the term Open Source so that anyone may work on it regardless whether they agree with our ideas or not. This is a new philosophy it must be open for other people to develop and expand on the ideas. We are planning to file a formal protest against his Trademarking claims with the U.S. Patent Office. On the basis that the term exists as part of intellectual property in our literature and is in common use in many other places. In any case here’s some of the text of his trademark filing i’ll answer everything else later.

            Here’s some of the text before:

        2. One more thing members of our movement have meditated on this for some time now. We existed as a seperate movement way before we heard of TVP. When we did we considered joinning with them however as with anything we needed to research and read exactly what they were talking about first. Through much research and debate and discussion among our own ranks we came to the conclusion that we couldn’t find common ground and that difference’s were not reconcileable. I’ve meditated myself on this personally and i don’t see anyway of reconciling the differences. After 3-4 months of discussing it we’ve decided to announce ours as a new and seperate school of thought on The Resource Based Economy.

          1. I am all for open discussion. I just think it is sad when polarization like this happens, when one is obviously so close to each other in the beginning. Is it the ‘Mechnocracy’ thing that’s bothering you? I really don’t feel that TVP and TZM want’s machines to ‘rule the world’. Quite the contrary. In my understanding, machines will only do what they do today, only more. Machines already makes billions of decisions for us every day. Everything from an autopilot on a plane, to a GPS in your car is a machine (read ‘computer) making decisions for you based on your input. ‘Go left here’, ‘make a right here’, etc. etc. We have no problem with that, do we? I don’t. In RBE it will only be much more of it. But the input will always be ours from the start. WE will always be the ones programming the machines. Of course, some program can be very extensive and wide reaching when it comes to the distribution of resources, of course. And here we have to use our common sense and technical skill so that this is being developed and used in the best way possible. But, how hard can it be? We have already developed GPSes, and I they are usually right when it comes to giving directions. When the resource distributing system is programmed to ‘bring resources to to the places needed’, it should do that pretty well, I think. Of course, some monitoring by humans is needed and recommended, and I don’t thing neither TVP or TZM thinks otherwise.

      2. Besides, all these LABELS! Where do they all come from? Directivism, Mechnocracy, Technocracy, Democracy….. Do we really need them? Can’t we just develop a world without money where technology helps mankind, rather than hinders it, and where everyone has a saying. And we can call that system whatever we like. “Directivism”…sounds kinda harsh to me. Like “You have to follow the Directive!! Or else….”. I vote for Niceocracy! That sounds nice. 🙂

        1. I sympathize i really do i wish we didn’t have to use labels. Unfortunately humanity is not yet at the stage we’re we don’t require them. So hence we have labels like we do after things have been transformed then they will cease. As there needs to be a way to facilitate discussion of differing viewpoints and different schools of thought.

          FYI though Niceocracy literally means a “Nice Bureacracy”…
