I know Im going to regret this, but whos the fella at the start of the movie - the indian fella :

What I am saying is how very important it is, to bring about in the human mind, the radical revolution.
The crisis, is a crisis in consciousness. A crisis that cannot anymore accept the old norms, the old patterns,
the ancient traditions.

And considering what the world is now, with all the misery, conflict, destructive brutality,
aggression, and so on, man is still as he was. He's still brutal, violent, aggressive, acquisitive, competitive.
AND, He's built a society along these lines.

Society today is composed of a series of institutions, from political institutions,
legal institutions, religious is, to institutions of social class, familiar values, and occupational
specialization.

It is obvious that the profound influence these traditional'ized' structures have in shaping our understanding and perspectives.

And, expanding on the John Perkins angle aka the Economic Terrorist, watch this interview, it's another eye opener.

I get confused sometimes because I also keep a (now getting rather large) database of info. I'd put it in there, and forgot to add it here !

Here's some more info.

These are well worth checking:

Transcript, with explanation, debate and references: http://www.zeitgeist.../transcript.htm

Q&A: http://www.zeitgeist...vie.com/q&a.htm

They will answer some questions you'll have at the end.

I think this http://uk.youtube.co...h?v=3ueEfRXZCVA deserves a place here.
The entire modern financial system is based upon a very small group of people having the power to create money out of thin air.

The only problem I have now is that one can only conclude (if you believe Zeitgeist) that the financial crisis has been planned and will go as far as the rulers wish it to (even to a new world war).

So in a way, owning gold will only be of use if there are few enough of us who do to slip under the radar. If not, they will just take it off us again.

Me thinks the medium term strategy may have to be to disengage from the system as much as possible. Own a house and land, grow what you need, and barter with your community for anything else. They'll still bloody call me up for national service I'll bet! Need to get that Kiwi passport faster so I'll at least have a choice who I am forced to fight for!

I watched the Addendum (because I found Zeitgeist curious) and found it even more flawed and patronising.

It's an interesting idea for fiction... I'll admit... and feel that it speaks volumes that it is associated with Ron Paul.
