Documentary – “Zeitgeist: Moving Forward” (full length)

Standard

Zeitgeist: Moving Forward, by director Peter Joseph, is a feature length documentary work which will present a case for a needed transition out of the current socioeconomic monetary paradigm which governs the entire world society.

This subject matter will transcend the issues of cultural relativism and traditional ideology and move to relate the core, empirical “life ground” attributes of human and social survival, extrapolating those immutable natural laws into a new sustainable social paradigm called a “Resource-Based Economy”.

  1. Sounds like utopian socialism as opposed to the one which we are fighting for. It’s all good and well to say that there will be no greed when there is extreme abundance, but that’s what was said 200 years ago and hasn’t occurred with the massive advances since. Not to even mention that capitalism is already as it is destroying all of the earth’s ecological systems.

    • I agree with you that this is beyond what we’re fighting for right now, and really, as a technocratic Marxist-Leninist, what is being provided here, I find to be a better element through Communism or after. Socialism is, through-n-through, a transitional stage from one socio-economic system to another.

      Now, to where I disagree with you. This is far from being utopian. It provides modern science and how it applies to society. This is the most up-to-date analysis on bio-socio-psycho development through our modern culture and how we can go about fixing it.

      As people who are very pro-science, this is a modern day look at up-to-date science applied to our social structure. So I wouldn’t rule it out as “utopian”, but rather a step we should try and engage in and discuss.

  2. Sorry I should of phrased myself more correctly. I meant that their approach was utopian, not their goal. They don’t really mention class struggle, they take a lot of time in the video to distance themselves from any concrete movements like socialism and communism, they don’t mention imperialism, they take consumerism as granted, and they misunderstand some aspects of capitalist history and development.

    That is not to say that the video was a waste of time, cause it obviously will attract a lot of people towards thinking about the systemic factor: capitalism (I became interested in socialism after becoming interesting in the reality around me through conspiracy videos like the first Zeitgeist). However I’m just saying it could be more accurate and people who watch the video the way it is are not going to become communists or socialists.
