Zeitgeist: Moving Forward  by director Peter Joseph is a 162 minute film work which continues what the prior two films of the Zeitgeist Film Series started: a critical look at the "Zeitgeist" or 'Spirit /Awareness of the Time'. A prominent underlying thesis of the Film Series is that a great many notions, beliefs and practices currently engaged in today and assumed as "presupposed", "given" or seemingly empirical to our societal approaches and values are not only intellectually/historically incorrect but highly detrimental to our personal and social progress and sustainability. Zeitgeist: Moving Forward focuses on the very fabric of the social order: Monetary-Market Economics. While the majority of the world today have slowly come to see some basic flaws in the economic system we share, as large scale debt defaults, inflation, industrial pollution, resource depletion, rising cancer rates and other signposts emerge to bring the concern into the realm of "public health" overall, very few however consider the economic paradigm as a whole as the source. The tendency is to demand reform in one area or another, avoiding the possibility that perhaps the entire system is intrinsically flawed at the foundational level. ZMF presents the case that it is, indeed, the very foundational mechanics of this system that generates the patterns of behavior and unsustainable methods of conduct that are leading to the vast spectrum of detrimental consequences both personal, social, and environmental and the longer they go on, the worse things will become. www.zeitgeistmovingforward.com

They impart truth; about the direction that wars, science, pharmacy, finance and global markets are heading. They explain carefully the implications, if the way the world is governed is left unchecked.They point to a new way, a better way.
I downloaded this video for free and watched it. I then watched a 40+ minute video of an interview with Peter Joseph on Youtube "Who is Peter Joseph?" .
At last I hear the voice of someone whom I feel I can trust: in their integrity and capability.
Don't believe me. View the evidence for yourself. And then if you want to help TZM out - buy an official copy.
This documentary does something that few others, if any, do. It takes a look at humanity, the human condition and how we interact with the environment. It does this from a vantage point which is extricated from the current ways of doing things, particularly in western culture. It highlights the stupidities and blindness within the human race and offers solutions, one main one being the advancement of technology.
You have to be fairly open to watch this, as those who are very inculcated within the current systems and the way we live currently may find too threatening to their current values and personal stability. That is what is really great about this film, it challenges erroneous presuppositions and long held assumptions very comprehensively with strong contributions from some great intellectual thinkers.
Moreover the art of the film maker and the overall message is that we can combine these understandings (knowledge technology) to move forward. There is no point in setting silly dualistic distinctions of right or wrong good and evil. If you favour behaviourism or humanism you will realise that these distinctions are ultimately meaningless and that each has its place and piece of the puzzle.
Some very simple truths are proposed and are hard to argue with, they include:
1) How can we live on finite planet with finite resources with a system built which is built on an infinite growth
paradigm? I tire of hearing how growth is so important.
2) Technological Unemployment: How can we continue to automate and build in efficiencies and give everyone jobs
(will we all work in some kind of crazy service industry?)where will the money come from when
unemployement balloons?Read more ›
So what's it all been about? - Zeitgeist: Moving Forward is a feature length presentation that invites you to think about the world that we all live in and (from an admittedly western world perspective) the numerous systems we have been indoctrinated into subscribing to, largely without question be it social, monetary, legal, religious, political, economic, corporate, education, all those facets; these systems are sold to us as "the ways of the civilised world" and yet experience will teach you that the systems of the 'civilised' world are littered with numerous contradictions and elements of corruption, showing the system up to be anything but civilised.
What, you find that hard to believe? - Why?? -- Look around... If your system works so well; if it respects the unavoidable truth that all Human beings NEED to be clothed, fed and housed or they will most likely die, why is it that after 3 centuries of peddling this system does the western world still have a homeless? Or people in poverty?? Or food banks??? Or a housing shortage???? Or people who are actually working for a living but who are actually earning less than a living wage????? If the social system you support really is all about the wellbeing of the people then why has the culture had to set up so many charities to pick up the slack? (there are 186000 charities in the UK). How much lower does the voter turn-out have to get before your leaders start thinking 'y'know, we probably need a radical rethink on how we do things around here?Read more ›
This movie shows the truth behind major organisations including religion and government and how they control and manipulate. You must watch this. Enlightening.
