Zeitgeist: Moving Forward (2011)

Only available in Canada, United States

Director Peter Joseph presents a feature length documentary that presents a case for us to move out of the economic and political systems that are failing the vast majority of people, world-wide. We take a harsh look at the political and economic world, as it is today. This view exposes the systems creating poverty, violence, and a generally unsustainable lifestyle that could lead to the collapse of humanity.

Despite all of this, there is still hope. New plans for the future are unveiled that combine cutting edge technology with immutable natural laws residing within each one of us. The call has been made to move from a monetary based economy to a resourced based economy where everyone’s vital needs are met so they can to explore their full potential. This practical social approach is based on advanced understandings which would resolve the current social woes facing the world today.

I've seen a lot of great documentaries, but this one just left me with my mouth open after it was over. Can a few good men and women save us from a brainwashed population? No, we will have to have a complete meltdown of the current system before people realize that it's always been broken.

I used to think that people who correctly identified the problem where thereby proved trustworthy. Then I found out the elite's strategy of controlling their opposition. They create the problem, wait for the public reaction against the problem, and then offer the solution they want the public to buy. I believe all the people on this film who are describing the problem are sincere people trying to do good. But the makers of the film give themselves away in these ways:
~ They portray the purpose of being human as being consumers who just want to have fun and be safe.
~ They dismiss people's desire for freedom as being only the freedom to make as much money as possible. This is absurd. Freedom to create our own lives in ways that don't harm others is a value we are losing daily. They bolster their anti-freedom position by claiming that nature is a dictator. Not true. Nature provides a context and leaves humans free to how we want to create our lives within that context. This is a learning experience. The fact that we have screwed it up so badly is part of the learning process. So what are we to learn from this? To give away control of our lives to a technological elite who claim they will take care of us like children? That IS the same bait the communists used to take power.
~ They keep saying what we need to do, like how we need to design cities, with no reference as to who it is that will make the decisions. They deride politics as part of the problem. "Politics" is just the label for how humans organize society. Organizing society isn't the problem. The problem is that our politics have been corrupted. The American Constitution is still our best defense against the New World Order, and they know it. However, it will only work if we the people actually use it. So of course they want to dissuade us from "politics".
~ Their plan for transitioning from the economic disaster they have created to their new utopian world is for mass demonstrations to shut down the current system. In fact, that would lead to chaos. Destroying all social structure would leave no way to organize or implement a new social structure. It would just create a vacuum that a well organized elite could step into with their pre-planned structure for Full-Spectrum-Dominance.

So what is the solution? Here's my opinion:
Corporations are chartered by the state. Therefore they are creations of the state. The state is the servant of the people, and therefore we are the masters of the creations of the state. The state has the power to regulate and even to revoke the charters of the corporations it creates. We have the power to stop voting for corporate-serving Republocrats and vote in candidates who have a track record of opposing corporatocracy, such as Ralph Nadar, Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul, in the past. On my state ballots I always find that there are anti-corporate candidates running. We just have to vote them in on every level of government. If we get the point portrayed in the movie where everyone is rebelling, then instead of everyone throwing their money away and crashing the system, everyone could just use the system we have in place to put Constitutionalists in power. Then from there we can use our political process to take apart the corrupt elite institutions in an orderly way and transition to a less toxic and more peaceful world. The Constitution supports taking apart the Federal Reserve, the IRS, NAFTA and so on. There's nothing in our Constitution that says we have to have a fractional reserve banking system based on debt. We can change that in an orderly way that keeps the people in charge....if we take responsibility and do it.

This is a practical, honest, straightforward, and objective assessment of our cultural today. And it explains, from the time of our founding fathers, how it was created and has evolved. Are we past the point of no return? Can we, as a human race, wake up and smell the stink of greed?
