Review by the NY Journal of Books
Society is broken. We can design our way to a better one.
In our increasingly interconnected world, self-interest and social-interest are rapidly becoming indistinguishable. If the oceans die, if society fractures, or if global warming spirals out of control, … [Read More]
I have been asked to give a talk before a business culture group call “METal” in Los Angeles on Sat., June 20th It should be very interesting as what I will present will be largely contrary to the values of the group, I suspect.

“In a quest for a new, more humane society, a counter-culture revolution takes the world by storm. In the first of the InterReflections Trilogy, we look back to the modern world and wonder how we managed to survive as long as we had.”

Understanding Truncated Free-Market Thought & General Delusions
This is a response to an email received.
I have been talking to libertarians about an RBE and get frustrated countering their narrow arguments. I have included some points brought up I would like help with, if you have time.
About resource abuse and exploitation, he says:
“If you own something, you want to maintain it in good condition. Private property means people will care about their property, including resources and employees… Those employee are also there voluntarily in a free market, so it is their choice.”
When I talk … [Read More]
Understanding “Structural Coercion” and “Structural Violence”, by Peter Joseph
This is a response to an email received. While the subject of “Structural Coercion” and “Structural Violence” seem hard for many to grasp, it is actually very simple once a systems-based perspective is taken and the world is viewed through the eyes of large scale statistics and not narrow anecdotes/reductionist thought.

Mini Documentary on Peter Joseph released by Charles Robinson

and his life in details in what is likely a rare interview (until then). He was kind enough to provide me with previously unreleased media and video and I in turn did my best to create a documentary (albeit kinda poor in quality compared to his work!) that would help express … [Read More]
Transcript : Peter Joseph Lecture: “Where are we now?” London, 2009
Full Lecture Transcript:
The Zeitgeist Movement London, UK / July 25th 2009 The title of the presentation is “Where are we now?” In my experience so far in attempting to promote the ideas of the movement and the Venus Project, I find about 95% of the critics tend to ignore the current state of affairs. And in a detached manner, they simply criticize the abstracts of what our proposed resolutions are without ever reflecting on the train of thought that was employed to reach those solutions. So in response … [Read More]
