Sharleen Bazeghi - Introduction to The Zeitgeist Movement - Z-Day 2013
A term you will hear frequently today is the gesture of a new social system called a Natural-Law/Resource-Based Economy (or NLRBE for short). A NLRBE is defined as an adaptive, socioeconomic system, actively derived from direct physical referents to the governing scientific laws of nature. And Jen Wilding put together this great graphic, that I think points out the characteristics very well. Thanks, Jen! Most people don't realize the current state of technology we have that could be profoundly more effective in meeting the needs of the human population. However, this approach inherently challenges all forms of traditionalism in the world today. The ancient whims and dynamics of the dominant political and financial establishments not only become inapplicable, they are seen as deeply flawed and detrimental. We need to remember that modern scientific causality, something we very much take for granted today, has really only been with us for a couple of hundred years and brought awareness and practice. Yet, even today, this scientific train of thought is just barely being given respect on the social level, usually only in response to various ecological crises resulting from industrial human actions. For the first time in human history, we have people actually talking about 'being green', as though it's new, as though we were ever supposed to be anything but, given the most basic principles of human and ecological sustainability. So, in conclusion to this brief introduction, let it be stated that the real revolution is the revolution of values. Sustainable beliefs precedes sustainable practices. And if our values are not in accord with the natural laws that govern our planet, if our values are not in accord with what can create true well-being, then clearly, we cannot expect to move forward with transformative technical changes. It is important to note that TZM's interest is purely global; nation, race, religion or other such notions of division are not recognized in this equation, since, when you break them all down, they are artificial contrivances, created mostly by fear. Instead, we see the human species as one family, all sharing the same basic needs, and the Earth as one habitat with no borders. May we walk into this bright future together. Thank you very much.
