Here's a review of what I thought of this film. I copied/pasted from my website, hopefully most of this transfers over, there were images in it.
I recently bought and watched Thrive, which was a pretty good documentary.
If you’re familiar with these types of topics you’re most likely not going to be blown away by much in here, although there are some innovative
views that I found worthwhile. Either way, it’s only a few bucks so it’s not a bad deal.
This documentary has many persuasive and rational people which is a nice change of pace from some of the more obscure, low budget films I’ve seen
with similar material.
The main selling point of this film is the discussion of free energy, and its suppression from the public. The main points include the torus structure
and the vector equilibrium which apparently relates to this hidden form of free energy.
The movie lacks to discuss exactly how this whole thing works besides some examples of scientists who have harnessed and built these free energy
machines, only to be sabotaged by nefarious groups (see Eugene Mallove, Adam Trombley and Stanley Meyer). It seems that the claim is that we can pull
the magnetic fields out of the space fabric and create energy with them. I’m not sure how this whole things work, or the theory behind, but from
what I recall in college physics, there is a conservation of energy in the universe. This means that it can only change forms, not be created. Nothing
can be more than 100% efficient for converting energy. But then again, I’m no scientist, and I’m definitely not a skeptic, so what do I know. One
great thing I did take away was this possibility of a conspiracy theory on “free energy” and its suppression from oil, coal, and electricity
The torus structure and 64 tetrahedron shapes are found everywhere in the universe (e.g. ancient worlds, flow of magnetic lines of flux, 2D versions
of the 3D tetrahedron, etc.). Spheres drawn around tetrahedrons (all 64) create a shape found in Egypt, China fu dog statues (under their paws), Mayan
calendar, Sumerian tablets, Cabalistic tree of life, and the Chinese I-ching.
The claim is that the ancient civilizations would have no other way to communicate this powerful energy other than drawing the shape for future
generations to study.
Experts and high ranking/qualified individuals discuss the existence of UFOs.
Crop circles-again showing 2-D crop circle of 64 tetrahedrons and the torus shape.
Intriguing part about NASA response from 1974 digital transmission radio signal it sent out into space in anticipation of an alien response. In 2001 a
crop circle was formed in response with a format that matched the original message.
Tesla and other inventors had free energy inventions that were also shut down. Tesla was shut down by J.P. Morgan-his financial backer. Morgan was the
famous banker who controlled finances and industries in electricity. The movie tells how he owned the copper lines for electricity that would’ve
been deemed worthless once Tesla’s free energy (which didn’t need transmission lines) was released.
All inventions were suppressed along with UFO discoveries because they're all using this same free energy. There are too many elite with money
invested in energy industries to allow the world to have free energy. There is over $200 trillion dollars in oil, coal, and electricity.
The documentary segues into a discussion on the food industry.
The Rockefeller family founded Standard Oil and became powerful through their associates (which includes J.P. Morgan) and now control the food
industry too. They started the Green Revolution in the 1940s-1970s (a way of increasing agriculture so that we can feed the burgeoning world
population) and pushed the agriculture system to use petroleum, single crops, and pesticides for a petroleum based agriculture. I’ve read books from
Michael Pollan on this subject, and I agree with this part because biodiversity is being destroyed, and our water and food supply is being poisoned
due to this Green Revolution. The organic industry was created from a acknowledgement of this problem.
Henry Kissinger once said-" Control oil and you control nations, control food and you control the people." He’s a member of the Bilderberg Group
and Bohemian Grove Club. No big deal.
The film then discusses the education and healthcare system, with their respective problems.
Rockefellers founded national education foundation to establish a school system, with the ultimate goal of fixed responses to authority (to obey and
comply when a student is instructed to do so). The Rockefellers established the second and third medical schools in America (Johns Hopkins School of
Public Health and Harvard School of Public Health). They also help fund the American Medical Association (AMA) to influence AMA decisions which will
trickle down through all of the doctors and health care system. Most of the medical education today is actually funded by pharmaceutical companies, so
the influence to have doctors simply prescribe pills to subdue any and all problems seems to be due to the training that they receive. The film also
discusses some cancer cures that have been shut down by the Journal of the AMA (see Dr Royal Rife).
All of these issues are controlled by finance. Finance is ruled by pyramid structure. This is all stuff discussed by David Icke in his lectures,
nothing new really.
The film provides a great, simplified explanation of how banks operate. Banks use "fractional reserve lending" where the bank only needs 10% of the
money they actually loan out. They are loaning out money that they don't have. Bankers make money out of nothing, while the serfs work for it. It’s
now a serfdom situation, where we are debt slaves to a financial elite in a rigged system. There is a nice interview with former Assistant Secretary
of Housing and Federal Housing Catherine Austin Fitts where she explains the system. The Federal Reserve was formed by bankers on Jeckyll Island in
Georgia, and were given control of the nation’s money supply. Nelson Aldrich helped establish this, and he has ties with J.P. Morgan and John
Rockefeller (I see a theme here…). The idea was that they're not supposed to be politically biased. But now insider bankers know all of data on
what's going on in the economy, and they use it to their advantage, like pulling their money out of the stock market prior to great depression and
9/11. The Federal Reserve is privately owned, and no government agency can overrule ANY of their actions. Here's a link to a video that has some info

I thought Thrive was pretty good, but it didn't have a lot of original ideas. The clout of Foster Gamble allowed several high profile and trustworthy
opinions to be inserted throughout, which was nice. It could've had a little bit more of David Icke, but at least he got a few minutes in there. In
summary-it's worth the few bucks it takes to watch it.
