The myth of money - explained, and more....
If you haven't seen Zeitgeist, the Movie yet - watch it here.
Hello Perceval, just watched the movie, i hread some negative comments beforehand and i have to say these were largely based on what this movie is about..our enslavement and the incapacity of many of us, including socalled intellektuals , to see through it. And theres more, obviously the first movie was a big success, relatively speaking. Nevertheless it probably caused some ripples, where it caused a big ripple was with Alex Jones, the man that rose to prominence thru his 9/11 movies..he obviously sees the Zeitgeist movies as competition and a distraction from his goal to have the real culprits of 9/11 hanged...
That would be nice, but it wouldn't solve the problems of this world. Zeitgeist has..with this movie taken a shot at that and i think they are right. However whre the movie fails is in painting a picture on a grass roots level..im sure there were time constraints the movie is already beyond regular attention levels (2 hours)but it opens avenues of attack as now those pictures are painted by conditioned minds. In our rat race world machines and computers are used against us, for control or to bring wages down...and so painting a picture of a world where automation provides the necessities of live for free, shocks people. "I'd be unemployed what should i do, who am i then, will my wife stay with me ? ..silly but real questions that frighten..
Zeitgeist, Addendum lacks input about a transitional phase.. the banking system could totally collapse within months, but decentralised free/green energy systems take time to implement, just as the big american carmakers are defacto broke ...building replacement Tesla (electric) Cars takes decades. Not to mention the militairy boys that want to keep playing with their toys, though admittedly these have taken the shape of videogames more and more , so we could let them play on in virtual realities...
I think people should see this movie , but i think for many it will be a step to far/beyond their imagination, still with the current crises people have been forced to open their eyes..even if they thusfar have learned about what defacto is just a fraction of the real problems at the moment..and why it is that the woestern world leaders are franctically trying to keep the illusion of business as usual...they should see this movie..to inspire them.
The Love That You Withhold, Is The Pain That You Carry
Hello and stuff,
Zeitgeist, i thought, was pretty informative, covered an interesting range of topics and managed to link them all together as the film progressed. I can imagine a lot of people feeling 'aligned' to the movie as it provided familiarity to the, for want of a better phrase, 'modern underground world view'.
Showing the similarities between many religions and showing they all had Sun worship as their roots and linking this with a NWO scenario was well thought out.
Zeitgeist addendum began with a similar feel but began taking an interesting turn when, unlike the first movie, it began making recommendations to the viewer regarding what we should and shouldn't be doing to enjoy a more blissful life.......
So, after a film and a half of familiarity and information we are now given solutions to all the problems that have been pointed out. And all this quite blatantly. And then we are given the ultimate solution, 'the Venus project'. Their vision of utopia where we can all live in harmony.....Apart from this sounds like some cult, Venus project?, Sun Worship? Promises of free energy and community synergy?.
Well done! This was never a documentary, This is a fictional film designed to look like a documentary (a bit like Blair witch and cloverfield) and it is a film about a fictional NWO sun worshipping cult trying to take over the world by making a documentary called 'Zeitgeist'. There is even a Venus project website, genius. I know this has been done before, but this is quite a slick idea targeting a specific internet crowd. I would even go, almost, as far as to say that this is as important a development in entertainment as the first plays on radio (i'm thinking 'war of the worlds' effect).
It uses Derren Brown type techniques to make the viewer more susceptible to believe what is being shown (Many of Derren Browns tricks seem to be on the viewer rather than the 'victim').It uses this 'brainwashed' or 'suggestible' state to drew us into the belief that what we are seeing is truthful. Even more so when most of the ideas shown are actually based on reality. A bit like the Da Vinci Code, with information to check up on rather than clues to solve, but 'actually' believable.
It worked well because the first film had no hint that it might not be the documentary it claimed to be, and i think this infotainment is how you keep a harder to please audience interested. If you get the audience going along with your 'fantasy' and take hold of their belief system, even for a short while, the entertainment becomes a little like a psychological rollercoaster....'it's real, we're going to crash, we're not going to crash, but it's still real,' It would be interesting also to know who many people were taken in by the 'Venus project' punchline....and for how long.
Heres a great 'review' of Zeitgeist Addendum.
There seem to be a lot of people being fooled by this movie, christians up in arms, people claiminf it is NWO propoganda, could turn out to be quite interesting (in a memetic infomediatertainment way)!
