I too, share concerns. However, I am attempting to think all the repercussions of everything this video could possibly have effect upon the world. On
the one hand, we can look away. We can pretend nothing will ever occur to change anything that we are leading to. But that leads only to poverty,
hurt, and pain through out the world.
The revolution that Zeitgeist offers to us sounds like an ideal. However, one must be practical when considering something as monumental as this.
I've watched both movies multiple times now, and have perused the internet, forums, etc. Looking for thoughts, opinions, facts, and essentially
anything I can find to confirm, or disprove what we are potentially looking to get into here.
I believe, if nothing is done, at the current rate, our world shall become near unbearable . . . unless of course you are among those very few at the
top of the world. Everyone else's quality of life will be terrible. And, in the consideration of equality, is it fair to weigh influence, power, etc.
to make one being better than the next?
However, What I have seen in our potential solution to Zeitgeist has holes. Terrible holes. Perhaps unfillable holes.
For instance, it was mentioned above . . . How is it we convince productivity to be made if one does not necessarily have to work hard to earn as much
as everyone else? There must be organization above some of the standard people to overview a revolution such as this . . . and yet, doesn't that just
lead to another small group of people with power? Are we at least offered true democracy in that, not this fake conceited governing we've lived with
for too long?
And if so, will that still enable us to make productivity, in relative peace?
So. In my mind, we must weigh . . . which direction, which path has a better probability of success, and which will have the best probability of
As far as I can see, if change is not made, and soon . . . It is nearly guarenteed we will inevitably be immersed wholely and completely into greed,
corruption and power, where we will never be able to get out without bloodshed.
If we do decide to make that change . . . And we work for it. . . We will have gigantic obstacles to overcome. I think this obviously is our best
option for potentially reviving our world. There are also definitely going to be costs along the way. . . but not nearly as severe as what we are
doomed to otherwise.
If we fail . . . Well, We have lost little.
So, To me, We have nothing to lose, and everything to gain.
Change . . . begins with you.
