Zeitgeist

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Z9WVZddH9w

This is a movie from the Zeitgeist series of films that have been criticizing todays society, its progress, where its headed, and now, have presented us the 'Venus Project'. This is a project to re-created society, and the world into a new golden age, for the human race to live in without countries, corporations, religion, money, and no government. The idea is simple: everything humanity that has to be grateful for came from technology, not governments, not money, and not religion, so let technology flourish at full speed without crippling.

Another key note the movie hits upon is how money is a source of practically every crime, and insists on eliminating the principle of monetary profit, to abolish all the problems it brings to the world. (I agree with this).

Although this film for me may be going too far with the idea of the Venus Project, I see it as the right way to begin looking at humanity, our earth, and the future of it all.

  1. Great film. I agree about the system of money being a crime, it's absolutely disgusting when see it for what it is. Not sure we'll ever see much of the Venus Project though. It's an admirable cause though.

  2. The zeitgeist series is pretty interesting. I haven't seen the one you linked yet but I'll definitely check it out next time I get 2+ hours. Not sure if you've heard or read the novel Ishmael but it sounds very similiar to how you describe the Venus Project. Wouldn't be surprised if there was some influence being exchanged there. Bookmarked the video for later, thanks for sharing.

  3. I think the notion of money being at the basis of crime is a flawed one, crime existed before money.

  4. The movies are pretty controversial but they do have some good ideas in them.
