Peter Joseph on The Zeitgeist Movement and its values (Repository)

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
What I'm trying to say here is that the Zeitgeist Movement really operates on multiple levels and we need to figure out ways to increase those levels. Let's assume for a moment that we could never obtain a resource based economy, hypothetic. Let's assume for a moment that that's just not going to happen. Does that mean the values of the Movement are not applicable? Does that mean that promoting the idea that we should relate things to physical reference to the planet and using science can't be also utilized in detached ways? Does that mean the philosophy of taking everything into account and understanding peoples indoctrinations and what generates aberrant behaviour... Does that mean all of that information is thrown out the window if we can not obtain a recource based economy? The point at hand is that we're shaping behaviour all the time. And even if we affect one person in a way that enlightens their world view to see each other more as equals, to see the need to be sustainable with a direct physical referent, to listen to the natural world and appreciate what the beauty of science has to offer about about the world we live in, about how we view the world. If we can simply get one person to take that view I think we've hit a unique accomplishment. So keep that in mind a little bit when you think about what your involvement in the Movement actually is. Realize that it's a multi-faceted position of influence. There is no endgame, it's not just 'Ooh, a recource based economy!' We're doing something of a cultural significance that I think is deeply profound transitional in our educational processes. And this is probably self-evident to most of you out there but I feel the need to state it. So there it is.
