The Zeitgeist Movement Response to Gulf Oil Spill

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
On the gulf coast the USA, the shock is now sitting in for millions of American citizens as we now realize the true extend of the damage caused by a desire for obsolete and dangerous fossil fuels and our perpetuation of an outdated monetary world society. Where the bottom line has always been profit at all cost, be it human or environmental. It is time for a viable solution to deal with the system hardwired for self-destruction. It is with that very unfortunate introduction that we - The Zeitgeist movement, now must enter the international conversation to express the need for true change. Change. That word is not some "linguist" slogan devised by our focus group. But the evident desire of the public for a meaning full transition out of the destructive legacy. The burden of our past mistakes has a maturing civilization. We only have one Earth. There is no reset button here. We must break out of our established ideologies that it prevented progress. Ending the political duality, economic stratification and false divisions is key to overcoming our parent historical bondage that says the future we were promised must remain an elusive dream. We must now rethink our society and outgrow those parts of it that serve to paralyze us. As of Monday, May 10th, it was reported by the associated press that the spill had spread to cover 2,100 square miles and was still spilling at a rate up to 210,000 gallons a day. As of today, there has been no real progress in stopping this catastrophe. This did not have to happen. It happened because we continue to use an obsolete technology for the sake of maintaining a profitable establishment. An establishment that perpetuates social stratification due to the very foundation of its monetary system. Destroys fragile and vital ecosystems and pollutes our air. It is time for a real change. Not empty promises. No manner of socialism or free market ideology will save us from ourselves. There needs to be a fundamental rewrite of what we think we know to achieve a sustainable human enterprise. Our generation has stood by and watched as our planet has been raped and pillaged. We have watched as our government built out the very people who created this economic crisis. We have watched as our rights were stripped away from us and yet we do nothing. Our generation has stood and watched this we have been handed the problems of countless generations before it. And we are preparing to do the same to the next generation. And yet, we do NOTHING! Let us be the first generation to handle the solutions to our children and our childrens' children. But we can not do it alone. Let us break down the barriers we have created among ourselves. We need all of you. Every last one to say 'Enough is Enough!' in one voice. Not as Americans, or Russians, Christians or Muslims But as Fathers, Mothers, Brothers and Sisters. Let us destroy the lines between us and work to create a world, where our children are truly safe and free. Let us create a world, where we can tell our children that they can be and do whatever their heart desires. And no, deep inside us, we are telling them the truth. Let our generation be the one. We have the tools, we have the knowledge, we have the technology. It is time you make the transition to a world and economy and a future we all deserve regardless of our geographic location or economic disposition. As long as we have rely on social systems defined in 19th century mentality all we will do is spin our wheels, while a parade of economic and ecological disasters 'visits' us again and again. It is time to pull the plug on the shred because that is you will find out there is a better way. We - The Zeitgeist movement representatives reach out to you, so that we can all work together to do what must be done. Every man, woman and child has a voice. But together we can create one voice so deafening that no one will have a choice, but to listen. But it requires YOU! It requires you to put away preconceive notions that you had been told about the way things are. As if it is the only way, because it is not. Our way of thinking will no longer sustain us. We can either remain in a house of cards we have built and watch it collapse all around us or we can through the best our society has to offer begin to construct the stable, mature and thriving society. So that the golf coast oil spill, the Exon, "Val Dees" and many others are nothing more than an embarrassing footnote in history. The CHOICE IS YOURS!
