For accuracy's sake, before you read my answer, it's best that I state that I am a member of the movement.
The zeitgeist movies, and the zeitgeist movement are a part of the activist branch of the Venus project. Our goal at this time, is to inform as many
people as we can about the possibilities of a ressource based economy. That is the first step. Information. To create critical mass.
I also have heard lots of rumors about the zeitgeist movement, and the venus project being part of the NWO. The movement's position on the NWO is the
following : the NWO does not exist, as many picture it. The NWO, is more of a natural evolution of the monetary system. It is not comprised of
particular individuals, meeting in the night to take over humanity. We refer to the NWO as the "corporatocracy". Buisiness men pursuing the logical
road to profit. Because in a monetary system, the absolute, and only goal is profit, these people do not need to meet. They are already operating
under the same general principle : profit (of course, most of us do not exclude existing power groups, such as the bilderbergers or the trilateral
comission, we just view them as another form of lobbies). The pusuit of profit and power is a natural declination of the monetary system, not a
conscious plot to take over the world. The result however is just that. We believe that we are already living in what you call the NWO. That's
Now, I have heard rumors, and members of ATS, who believe that the Venus project, is the NWO. Here is my uptake on the situation. These acusations
generally come from right wing or conservative members. The venus project advocates a society free of countries, money, and religion. This bugs many
conservatives, as it conflicts directly with their own cultural standpoints.
It is no coincidence that these people label the Venus project as "communist", and affiliated in some way with the NWO. They are persuaded, because
of their political bias, that the NWO will necesarily come in the form of a communist dictatorship. We believe that we are already living in the NWO,
and that the NWO is the modern, globalized neo-liberal system. "None are more hopelessly enslaved tahn those who falsely believe to be free".
The zeitgeist movies challenge people on a cultural level. They attack many of the values this society educates us to hold as sacred. Patriotism.
Religion. Money. This provokes a knee-jerk reaction in those who have embraced one or several of these values. Some will understand the message in the
movie, and accept to reflect on themselves, on why they feel challenged, or hurt, and maybe they will gain some openmindness from that. But many will
simply relapse into the confortable mental boxes that they, or society has built for them, and scream "NWO ! NWO !" because the message is
contradictory with their culturaly induced beliefs.
The venus project, and the ZGM, have NOTHING to do with the NWO. On the contrary, they advocate equality and freedom between all men. Rightwing nuts
will tell you "no, the venus project is communism". This is ridiculous, and shows 1) They have no idea of what the venus project is, 2) They have no
idea what communism is. I suggest you visit the movement's web site, and check out the activist's orientation guide, where it goes into the mecanics
of the ZGM and the Venus project. Make up your own mind. But remember, be open about it. The basis of the movement is the scientific method. Use
reason. And proof.
To answer your second question. The movies condensed basically all of my beliefs, and challenged a few. These films changed my life, for the better. I
am no longer afraid of my fellow man. I learned what love really means. And I found the biggest and most important lie, ever. One that shapes the
world, and that every institution on earth is hellbent on getting you to believe, because it serves as an excuse, and as an obstacle to innovating
ideas. Human nature. Human nature is a lie, and does not exist. It is one of the most paralizing notions that exist. Human nature is the biggest myth
society has ever perpetuated. When you understand this, then, my friend, and only then, are you truly free.
Hope I helped.
