I've been trying to think of flaws in the idea lately but have had little luck.

So far all I can think of is the lack of implementation plans and that it will take a long time to happen.

Take your best shot and I'll try to defend TVP.

I said this recently: "I have no fear of it, but many do. I'm not worried about losing my car, home and worldly possessions. They don't define me. In a resource-based economy (RBE) I can have what I need to do what I want, how I want.

People afraid to give up their stuff to save the world are sad souls. They are controlled by their possessions and fear that without them, they are more inferior. Fear is the mind killer and consequent decisions are tainted and illogical."

One last thing to point out, which is a problem with societal perception rather than with TVP itself, is that it could be labelled communism. I personally disagree that it is communism. For example, TVP is purely an economy thing, not a political thing at all. You could say it has economic elements of communism but since you can't go further than that, it can't be labeled communism. You could call it socialism but our brainwashed minds still make us think socialism = communism. I call it a libertarian socialism, am I wrong?
