About TZM Defined:

The Zeitgeist Movement Defined is the official, representative text of the global, not-for-profit sustainability advocacy organization known as The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM).

This densely sourced and highly detailed work argues for a large-scale change in human culture, specifically in the context of economic practice. The dominant theme is that the current socioeconomic system that governs our world at this time has severe structural flaws born out of traditional economic and social assumptions which originated in our early history, and the inherent severity of these flaws have gone largely unnoticed.

However, in the early 21st century, these problems have risen in prominence, taking the consequential form of increased social destabilization and ongoing environmental collapse. Yet, this text is not simply about explaining such problems and their root causality - It is also about posing concrete solutions, coupled with a new perspective on social/environmental sustainability and efficiency which, in concert with the tremendous possibility of modern technology and a phenomenon known as ephemeralization, reveals humanity's current capacity to create an abundant, post-scarcity reality.

This text walks through, step by step, the train of thought and technical industrial reordering needed to update our global society (and its values) to enable these profound new possibilities. While this text can be read strictly from a passive perspective, it was created also to be used as an awareness and activist tool. The Zeitgeist Movement, which has chapters across dozens of countries, and is perhaps the largest activist organization of its kind, hopes those interested in this direction will join the Movement in global solidarity and assist in the culmination of this new social model, for the benefit of the whole of humanity.
