"Votes for Women" - Remember that almost every new concept was ridiculed, rejected and laughed at when it was first introduced, specially by the experts of the times. All new ideas for social betterment, including women's rights, black rights, child labor, have always been met with great resistance. For instance, during the time of the Wright brothers, the distinguished scientists of the day were writing books proclaiming why man can't fly. The Wright brothers didn't read their books and went right ahead and built the flying machine. When science is applied with human and environmental concern to the way we live, we could easily create abundance for all. We will eventually understand that most criminals that fill our jails are a result of the need to acquire money and property, in an age of often contrived scarcity of the monetary system. Children will look back and wonder why we couldn't see the limitations of this offensive system. Being civilized is an ongoing process. There are no utopias and no final frontiers. All things change and are in a continuous process of social evolution. Those countries that try to freeze things and keep things as they are will be surpassed. Thank you. Zeitgeist Movement Portugal. Think for yourself. - Do you hear me back there? - Yes. - Is everything alright in terms of sound? First thing I wanna say is that... maybe if I stand here it'll be easier... First thing I wanna say is that the language that we all use was designed hundreds of years ago. And that makes it impossible to talk to one another. I know it's hard for you to understand, but we talk at each other rather than to one another. I'm gonna try to prove it to you. rather than to one another. Sometimes a person says: "Have a nice weekend." Why don't they say: "Have a nice life?" Why just the weekend? Because you live in a world where language was design without real meaning. Another proof of that. When you open the Bible your friend says: "This is what Jesus meant." Another person says: "Your wrong, he meant that." And the third person says: "Your both wrong, this is what he really meant." That's why you have the Lutheran, the Seventh-day Adventists, the Catholic. Because the Bible is subject to interpretation. So is all language. When you talk to somebody, they really don't hear what you say. It goes into their heads, gets messed around, and comes out a little different. Is it possible now to develop a language that's not subject to interpretation? Yes, it is. Mathematics, chemistry. When a chemist rights a formula, he goes to Japan or Germany... It's not subject to interpretation. Engineering standards. When engineers talk to each other, they don't say: "Believe me, this is the strongest material made." They talk about its tensional strength, compression strength, tension strength. And they understand each other. When a bridge engineers talk to each other, one doesn't say: "I think the beams are this size." Another one says: "No, there're that size." You couldn't build bridges if the language was subject to interpretation. Our world, now, this is because I respect the women here, it's full of shit as a Christmas turkey. I talk with women as equals, I don't pull my punches. I want you to understand. Today, when a lady drops a pie, she says: "Feedle-dee." The guy says: "Shit." That means: "Sorry, I dropped the pie." So, there's no bad words. When a person says: "Bullshit." Means: "I can't accept what you say." There's nothing to do with a shit of a bull. Now, if you understand what I'm talking about. If you want to be honest with things, they say: "Honesty is the best policy." Then when your children came up to you and they say: "Mommy, where do babies come from." She says: "The stork brings them." That's a lie. And on Santa Claus Day, they say: "Santa Claus brings you everything." Oh, really? The parents and the relatives bring kids things they want them to have. Would you stop lying to kids? And in the States, we have a tremendous lie, called "The Mickey Mouse Club". Imagine giving kids that kind of a notion. Of a Mickey Mouse... Worshiping a rat? I'm trying to tell you that the world you live in is as full of shit as a Christmas turkey. All nations lie. Now, people think: "Well, some nations are good." My country, America, where do you thing they got the land? They stole it from the Indians. They killed thousands of Indians. Americans... And they starved...they killed fifteen million buffalos. But some Indians tried to fight back. So the government offered men ten bucks for every Indian you killed. So a guy would walk over the government and say: "I just killed ten Indians." And the government say: "How do I know that? Bring back a piece of the Indian." So they scalped them. That's where the scalping came from. Guy brought ten scalps in, he got paid. So, you're country, my country, all countries do the same thing. They say: "The sun never sets on England." Where do you think they got all that land? You think people said: "Come to our land and take it away." Of course not. We are all basically corrupt. Now, lawyers...there's nothing to matter with lawyers as long as they got there hands in their own pockets. So the profession of law, banking, investment brokers, all gone in the future, 'cause they do nothing. Now, you think: "Well, maybe politicians are alright." Well, politicians say things that people like to hear. They have to say to get elected. Also, if the drug company comes up and says: "Hey, if you give us an hand we'll put up two million dollars to help you get elected." When you're elected, you owe favors to the drug company. If the drug companies find out that celery juice blow blood pressure, why should they tell you that, when they can sell drugs for three bucks a peace, a little pill? So, they don't do research for the benefit of people. They do research for the benefit of profit. And nothing more. If your country loves you, which a lot of kids are brought up to believe in, if you serve in the army, that mean you put your life up for your country. I'd think that if there is war, and if you put your life up for your country, the country should subscript all the war industries, that no one makes any money out of war. The gyps, the airplanes, the aircraft carriage. No profit, for the duration of the war...and the war is real. If you took the profit out of war, there'd be no war. What the hell do you think war is? You think we go to another country to bring democracy? We go there 'cause there's oil, resources or something we need. So, are people good or bad? Well, there's no such thing as good or bad people. If you're brought up in the South, as a baby in America, in some uneducated region, you might become a member of the Klu Klux Klan, and he might say things like this: "I'm goin' get me a nigger an' I goin' kick his ass." Is that him speaking or the way he was brought up? So you don't exist really. The culture grabs you when you're very young, and they pump crap into your head. "What's the greatest country in the world?" What ever it is. They pull that in your head. "Who loves you more than anybody? Your mamma and papa." Of course that's not true. People that treat you well and educate you and serve your needs really love you. Now, the word love is another bullshit word. I'm gonna try to sell it now. Don't get mad at me. Give me a chance to bring thought. I'm sure most of you do not like everything you've ever done. Isn't that right? You did stupid things in the past. You did thing you're sorry about. So sometimes you love yourself very much, sometimes a little less, and sometimes "How did I do that stupid thing?"
