Zeitgeist, the Movies

Have you watched the movie Zeitgeist yet? I’d been hearing about it for a year and a half, since many people have been sending it to their friends on the ‘net. It’s become almost a movement, the Most Downloaded film on Google’s film section. I wonder if it was a factor in creating Obama’s huge constituency among the young.

Tonight I finally took the time to watch it. It’s a couple of hours long, artistically produced, very thought provoking, scary, and, ultimately, uplifting. I recommend it.

Here’s the link.

In October, 2008, writer/director Peter Joseph released a sequel, Zeitgeist: Addendum, which you can watch here. This film offers more detail into the globalization and banking schemes that created the War on Terror, and offers a solution based on a “resource based economy.”

For a more nuanced set of solutions for the future, I suggest subscribing to Bioneers and attending their events.
