I'm hoping, banking, that at least a couple of you have heard of this Zeitgeist nonsense. It's a movement, evidently, and they've made a movie to
If you look at their website, the "synopsis" of their movement really just sounds like a bunch of hippie crap--too abstract and idealist, and maybe makes you smell like pachouli and clove cigarettes.
If you took out all the people at the top who are engaged in global hegemonic rule, it would simply be a matter of time before another group stepped in to seek the same ambition. Therefore, it isn't the individual people or groups that are the problem. It is actually the conditions upon which those people have been accustomed and indoctrinated by. Of course, many argue against this view with the escapist notion that it is "human nature" that causes this competition and need for dominance. This is unsupported by the facts. In reality, we are nearly clean slates when we are born and it is our environment that shapes who we are and how we behave.
But the movie. The fucking MOVIE, people. I watched about twenty minutes of it last night, and experienced the following emotions:
1. Anxiety (heh)
3. Terror (heh)
I think that was all of them. It was a nice way to wind down the evening.
Here's the full, two hour movie. I wish I could tell you which part to scroll to, in order to see the parts where they pretty much attempt to show that we bombed our own buildings 8 years ago, and according to the Rockefellers and Mr. Murdoch, did so in an effort to create a World Government where we're all microchipped.
For real. And while I don't necessarily take it at face value, I will say that this shit is mildly convincing. Oh, and graphic. And maybe don't watch it if you're anxious. Or plan on having a good day/life.
PS: I WON AN AWARD! From Jerrod! (Because I'm neurotic, presumably. What else could it be for?)
That (meaning, pee-snow) kind of makes up for the fact that our children and our children's children will be mindless drones!
