Very interesting. In English you usually find the word used in academic writing on history. It's difficult to appreciate the "spirit" of the
current time. It usually requires the perspective of elapsed time and the application of intellectual analysis.
What describes the spirit of our current age? Is ours the age of "mendacity", the age of "oligarchical senility", the age of "subterfuge", the
age of "international larceny", the age of "deadly sins", the age of "imperial gangrene", the age of "entropy", the age of "industrial
devolution", the age of "grasping at straws", the age of "troglodytes in power" . . . and on and on.
ok so i watched the zietgiest movie and i watched it about 5 times and found it very interesting
There are already threads about Zeitgeist.
this says people like alex jones and david icke are goverment plants which seems pretty resenable because david icke isnt really sly he is
basically mainstream himself in a way and the goverment would have killed him by now like other people who have came forward and told the
I don't think that Alex Jones and David Icke are plants. They raise too much suspicion and hostility toward the powers that be. Although it must be
said that it is widely believed that the Freemasons were behind the French Revolution and had a strong hand in the American Revolution too.
If anything these revelations, if true, indicate to me that the shadow globalist power is more fractured than some conspiracy theorists would have us
believe. I don't think there is overall coordination of a grand plot to control the world, despite the possibility that a group of oligarchs may
well have a plan in place to do so
Bottom line, these people are people
and won't always see eye to eye on everything.
anyway what are your views on the zietgiest move and david icke
I enjoyed the movie but I would not accept what it says without doing my own research, particularly about ancient religious practices and beliefs,
etc. It's a murky area of research and often the researchers are not really qualified to understand what they are researching. Practitioners of
modern esoteric religions often have a deeper insight into ancient mystery cults than modern historians have.
David Icke is a very interesting and courageous person, on a personal
journey into the deep meaning of things. I don't know if he really
understands everything he talks about, but I think he is sincerely trying to come to an understanding of some very deep phenomena.
I think his mistrust of what governments are up to is very well founded. I like him as a person, but his main talent, as far as I can see, is as a
popularizer of ideas first put forward by others.
