No offense to anyone here, but IMHO, Zeitgeist Addendum is nothing more than Socialist, and some would say Marxist propaganda.
I don’t like to criticize anything that is helping to spread the truth about the Federal Reserve and 9/11 but the overall message of that film is disturbing, and misleading, as I see it.

Peace

Proponents of the 'live without money' theories and the authors of the Zeitgeist series seem to me to leave out one simple thing: Human nature. The utopian world that especially the 'Zeitgeist' people wish for in my opinion is unachievable beyond imagination. As a species, we are constantly measuring ourselves in various ways against each other, in wealth, in prowess, in ownership, in beauty, etc, money is just another manifestation of this part of our nature. Money, obviously equates with wealth, to eliminate money would simply put another thing in its place, some other way of measuring wealth. As much as i loath it, some people wish to see themselves as 'better' or 'privileged' or even 'smarter', 'more industrious' etc than others, and therefore more entitled to 'wealth', thats why we have money in the first place etc. Just my 5cents

100% with you. Having living my childhood under communism , I spot commies from 1000 miles, and ZG movement is communism, a totalitarian form of communism actually. I always believed that a middle way between communism and capitalism is the right way - allowing people to enjoy the fruits of their work but overtax whatever exceeds a certain limit. I believe the limit should be around what the average yearly income per citizen is, and multiplied with 300 for example . Whatever would exceed this I would tax with 80 %
Howeveeeer ... all the countries should do this at the same time or we end up having a massive migration of the mega-rich..

Not unless one is really trying to help uplift humanity. To me people who live to compare things with others don't really deserve wealth or money because half of them don't use it wisely.

Money should be made obsolete and worthless in the coming years so that people may realize their true self. Do we need a world where everything is being run by a paper? Take money out of the equation and people will hardly do comparison. Money is not the be all and end all of intelligence or success in life.

The only thing that could be done is to educate the masses through a forceful way.

I have read about people living off the land.
I would love to do it.
but the Tax collector would stop you some how.
barter would be great.
if you flood the market with pigs.
a pig is still a pig. and will feed a family for a week
or more. money! 100 years ago it was pennies to feed a family.
now! about 150+ dollars a week to feed a family.
