Boy that was hard work, just been through the vast majority of this thread and have ended up with mixed feelings.
I suppose I would have a natural tendency to defend the ZM and TVP, simply because they were the first things to set me on this road to try and "wake
It is from seeing the two original Zeitgeist films, that my curiosity arose, and lead me down many other paths, in an effort to better understand what
is really going on. I have found it very very frustrating, but despite this, I feel it has stood me in better stead, made me more conscious of what is
going on, and changed my outlook on life somewhat. For example, the days of me busting a gut to pursue "worthless trinkets" have long gone. I try to
be a little more focussed on what I need, and what is really important.
My point therefore is, regardless of what we may think of TZM and TVP, and indeed whether or not it is Pure Communism, is to me a side issue. Sure, I
find the ideas uplifting and ideological, and in reality, as many people have mentioned, it will never happen. If others are like me, they will have
found these films a great place to start, a place to put down a marker and say that from now on I will question things more, be more aware of the MSM,
look to find things out for myself when I can, and spread the word.
Surely all the threads ever created on ATS are for a similar purpose, to try to deny ignorance and wake people up to what is really going on.
To quote Oscar Wilde:
"Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone elses opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation."
This is what I am trying to break away from, but it is difficult. Personally, whether or not you agree with something like TVP, you have to admire a
man who devotes his lifes work to a particular cause he believes in, in an effort to try and be original, critical, and forward thinking.
I find PJ a little hard to concentrate on, even a little patronising at times.
Despite what anyone may think of either of them, I feel they both have an important part to play, in setting people on the road to a better awareness
of what the world is going through.
