    The Zeitgeist Movement on The Young Turks 40 Min Interview with Peter Joseph

    Published on Mar 14, 2013 "This week, Cenk Uygur sits down with Peter Joseph, founder of the Zeitgeist movement. The Zeitgeist movement's goal is to create global sustainability by changing established social systems. Can people save the world by changing socially? Is the market economy responsible for corruption, and is it serving its original purpose? Does the market economy leave room for true freewill, and is it truly possible to shed ourselves of material goods?

    The Zeitgeist Movement Challenge

    The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM) is conducting a challenge, offering a formal platform to anyone who thinks they can legitimately demonstrate that TZM's central thesis of a Natural Law Resource-Based Economy (NLRBE), or part of it, is flawed.

    Why are you doing this? Mirroring Sam Harris' recent "The Moral Landscape Challenge", TZM thinks this will provide a unique platform to further the intellectual pursuit of social and economic sustainability. Any scientific field must be consistently open to new information that can update current understandings. Since TZM deals in what could be considered the broadest scientific field, that being a science of society itself, which of course references all other scientific fields, TZM must be open to new information or new arguments that can alter its advocacy initiatives and understandings.

    How does the challenge work exactly? Submit a no-more-than-1,000 word essay (as a Word doc or PDF) by July 31, 2014 at 11:59pm PST to: challenge(at)thezeitgeistmovement.com . One essay per person -- please do not send multiple drafts. Essays not conforming to these rules will be automatically disqualified. The essay must challenge TZM's central thesis or part of it -- not peripheral issues.

  • TZM Global Radio - Ep 143 - Cybernated Farm Systems, with Ben McLeish

    Douglas Mallette, former NASA subcontractor and systems engineer joins ZM Global to discuss his efforts to found a company dealing in next-gen farming to tangibly solve the world food issue. The aim of Cybernated Farm Systems (CFS) is to provide locally vertically grown fresh food using aquaponics. Saving space, using fewer resources and "doing more with less" is the key to global sustainable decentralized food production. Doug has als created the "SusPlus" Initiative, a free standard designed not only to be sustainable, but to encourage a sort of "reverse pollution", to leave the environment better than prior to deployment of an industrial or production operation.

    Thunderclap campaign for CFS runs until April 11th! Support this project for free here: https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/9645-cybernated-farm-systems

  • TZM Global Radio/Podcast Ep 142, April 1st 2014 [ The Zeitgeist Movement ]

    In this critically important episode, Matt and Ben realize the error of their ways and how TZM must now recognize the true power of Praxeology. Peter Joseph has quit the movement to work for Goldman Sachs. Matt Berkowitz is off to help create the giant, global Super Computer that will take everyone's stuff in the future; with Sir Ben McLeish off to help head the Mises Institute for a bit, before retiring to his 11 million square mille ranch on the African continent for a sloppy joe party.

    The consensus is that we, as a movement, must grow up and only follow Stefan Monologue for our philosophical guidance, coupled with diligently promoting our blogs which are now to be free from the intellectual coercion of "facts" or "logic."

    April 1st ;)

  • Origins and Adaptations II, Peter Joseph, March 15th 2014, ZDay, The Zeitgeist Movement

    Peter Joseph's "Origins and Adaptations II", March 15th 2014, 6th Annual "Zeitgeist Day", Toronto, ON, CA.

    In this presentation Peter discusses how the Market Economy has not only evolved/simplified into its most core function of blind gain and hence the arbitrary trading of the "widget", using the Stock Market / Financialization as a point of focus, he also explains how any social progress that has occurred has happened "by proxy" - or incidental to the market game.

    He describes what all Free-Market proponents ignore: the true, measurable system consequences which are suffocating humanity - with Capitalism now the "leading cause of death" on Earth today.

    He also explains how an "ethically" respected, "pure" free market (even if it was possible - which it is not, as argued) would generate constant deprivation/"ethical" imbalance - due to the pressure-building "externalities" that the Market cannot solve due to its foundational mechanisms.

    Also, the idea of "Crony-Capitalism" vs. "Free Market Capitalism" is proven to be a "Continuum Fallacy" and a delusion via moral relativism.

    He finishes with two proposals for future TZM projects to help transition.

  • TZM Global Radio/Podcast Ep. 140, Host: Ben McLeish [ The Zeitgeist Movement ]

    Nelson, New Zealand, is a tiny community by most standards. And yet, on a recent mayoral election, "Resource Based Economy" officially appeared on the ballot paper. It received Mainstream coverage in Stuff Magazine and elsewhere. Ben McLeish talks to Richard Osmaston, whose efforts at promoting a Resource Based/Natural Law Economy in the region have included running for mayor - and he's not finished with his efforts to engage the political system in order to spread awareness. Richard is one of many who run "The Money Free Party", a political party which forces the cognitive shift of evaluating the other "Business As Usual" political outfits as exactly that; The "Business" or "Money Parties."

    Also discussed are Z-Day 2014's worldwide events, upcoming output from Zeitgeist Movement Speakers, and more.
