I, for one, like the "Zietgeist" movie(s), both "-The Movie" and "-Addendum".
These guys, on the other hand, seems not to be that impressed...

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" and "Halleluljas".

MANUFACTURING DISSIDENT: Zeitgeist Technocratic Undercurrent

Let's see what you guys say!

They couldint be more right in the sense that we must never forget to always keep an open mind and always look at all sides of an arguement, not to gullibly swallow something and hold it aloft as ultimate truth, never consider yourself to have all the answers, a lot of Zeitgeist is poorly researched, of that there is no doubt, so just take it on board and roll with it and eventually your own research will bring things into clearer focus.

Mmmyes, but Zeitgeist is still an outstanding production in my eyes. It makes many valid points to take into consideration.

It is all up to the viewer to decide what to make of it.

It is said that "Zietgiest" is there to "open your eyes" and "start thinking".
People in general seem to have a hard time doing this.
We are all so eager to let others to the thinking for us.

If I was a non-thinker, I would still prefer "Zeitgeist" to do it for me rahter than the corrupt interests of MSM and "NWO-type" governments...

Luckily, I need none of them to do so.
There is a great, vast difference between subjects for thoughts and thoughts.
