Are You A Dreamer? -The Zeitgeist Movement-

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
The Zeitgeist Movement Hey! Hey. Are you a dreamer? Yeah. Haven't seen too many around lately. Things have been though lately for dreamers. They say dreaming is dead, that no one does it anymore. It's not dead, it's just that it has been forgotten. Removed from our language. Nobody teaches it, so no one knows it exists. The dreamers have been banished to obscurity. I'm trying to change all that now and I hope you are too. By dreaming, every day. Dreaming with our hands, dreaming with our minds. Our planet is facing the greatest problems that it's ever faced. Ever. So whatever you do, don't be bored. This is absolutely the most existing time we could've possibly hoped to be alive. Things have just started. The scientific method, if applied socially, will work. It does not attain perfection, it's just a far better system than any other system that we know of today. In other words, I'm not talking about utopian societies, where everybody is happy. There is no such condition. All social systems are in a state of evolution. That is, an established society is one that has found a way that worked for the people in control of that society, whereas all societies are emergent, constantly evolving. There is no such thing as attaining a sane world. Sanity depends on the acquisition of information and applying that information to the well being of all people and protecting the environment. That's what I mean when I use the word 'sanity'. The whole basis of the technology is to maintain a high standard of living. Technology is not worth anything unless it improves peoples lives. Today people are afraid of science and technology because it is so abusive today, in so many ways. But it's not science and it's not the technology we should be wary of, it's the abuse and the misuse of science. You can take a rocket and you can shoot it into outer space and explore outer space or you can take it and use it as a bomb and destroy another country. It's really the inanimate object, really is in our hands and what we do with it. The entire money structured and materialistic oriented society is a false society. 10 or 15 years from now, our society will go down in history as the lowest development of man. We have the brains, the know-how, the technology and feasibility to build an entirely new civilisation. - You believe that we teach competition? That it's not bred into some- - Competition is dangerous, socially offensive, considered right and normal, because you are brought up to that value system. What kind of competition did Jesus have? What kind of competition is there in your body? Suppose your brain said "I am the most important organ", and the liver said "I am, and I want to go a free enterprise system", you'd rot away in a month, if every organ in your body went out for itself. Social cybernering does not appeal to goverments, to private enterprise. We're going to do this thing - just as the automobile phased out the stagecoach, just as television stepped in and phased out the old vaudeville and the old motion pictures. That history and technology is respecters of no society, no individual opinions, but it moves on. And we've got to be prepared to face the future. - In your society there are no mayors of cities... - There are no mayors, there are no politicians, and you don't have to fill out any forms to go to the arts center or music center and you go to a university whether you can afford it or not. You don't have to use any of the systems today. Let me briefly say this: You have a bumper in front of your car and behind your car. But in your society, your cars is hit on the side also. You have safety belts and harnesses in your car. But that assumes that you're going to be hit by the rear or in front. If you're hit on a side, you go right through the side of the windshield. What good are these approaches?! They are designed by men that are cerebral insufficients! You've got to design a society with a bumper all around the car, phase out human drivers, put electronic guiding systems in cars, or eliminate the automobile, design a holistic transportation system. We must put our mind to this as we do to put a man on the moon. The world is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on, you think it's real, because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down, and round and round, it has thrills and chills, it's very brightly colored and it's very loud. And it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time. They begin to question, "Is this real or is this just a ride?" And other people have remembered and they come back to us and they say: "Hey, don't worry, don't be afraid ever because... this is just a ride." And we... kill those people. "Shut him up! we have a lot invested in this ride, shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry, look at my big bank account and my family. This has to be real." It's just a ride. But we always kill those good guys that try to tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But that doesn't matter, because it's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money, a choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as one. Here's what we can do to change the world right now, to a better ride: Take all that money we spend on weapons and defense each year and instead spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded and we can explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever ... in peace. Thank you very much, you've been great, I hope you've enjoyed it. London you're fantastic, thank you! Thank you very much! It's just a ride, it's just a ride. "You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one, I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one" -John Lennon- THE ZEITGEIST MOVEMENT FEAR or LOVE
