I, for one, like the "Zietgeist" movie(s), both "-The Movie" and "-Addendum".
, on the other hand, seems not to be that
Many Zeitgeist adherents fancy themselves as the enlightened possessors of open minds. This assessment is flatly bogus, as is evidenced by the
Zeitgeist proponent's refusal to give their assent to Christianity, patriotism, or free market capitalism. Moreover, the possession of a so-called
"open mind" does not automatically qualify as a virtue.
I think it is always
of great importance to study all sides of the argumentation.
That is what brings the "true" open-mindness. We must never
blindly swallow what is given to us, not even
when that is the goal of the
message spread. Seems confusing? Well, it is!
G.K. Chesterton once wrote: "Merely having an open mind is nothing. The object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again
on something solid."
Even after reading this enormous
article, I still consider "Zeitgeist" to be one of the more important documentaries ever made.
This link can be, and should be
read by all
, either pro or con the concepts presented therein.
For you "pro-Zeitgeisters" this will represent what minds you must deal with "out there", and for you already "con-Zeitgeist" you can hereby
wallow in snug validation, calling out your "Hell-yeahs"
