Internet applications feed on the idealist slogan of ‘sharing’. Despite their use of the altruist semantics, in lieu of the sharing economy, these profitable platforms by and large employ the taking economy. On top of this, their financial gains are masked by people’s longings in an era of promulgated self-sufficiency. In response to the phenomenon, community-centred resistance movements have emerged: sharing one’s time (skills), food, resources, communal house construction. DIY tendencies are becoming increasingly more apparent. They frequently take the form of utopian projects such as the Venus Project, aiming to replace the monetary system with an equal and sustainable access to resources. These are but few thick networks of mutual interdependencies which strive to enrich our existence. Animation inspired by the activity of Jacque Fresco. He directed the Venus Project and advocated global implementation of a socioeconomic system which he referred to as a „resource-based economy”.
