InterReflections Trailer

February 12, 2017 Admin 0

InterReflections is an experimental, mixed genre narrative feature film by Peter Joseph, adapted from his book The New Human Rights Movement.

This is the first of a trilogy series about a fictional global revolution. Taking place in three time frames, the through-line is connected by the story of Concordia – a hacktivist origination comprised of high-ranking military defectors from around the world. They seek to stop further destabilization of the world in the mid 21st century by strategically shifting technological focus from “weaponry” to “livingry”.

Zeitgeist I, Ending Remix by America Dj Bassnectar

June 6, 2015 Admin 0

Famed, socially conscious American DJ Bassnector did a beautiful audio/video remix – live multimedia display – of the most important gestural section of Zeitgeist: The Movie. Many are unaware that Zeitgeist: The Movie was a 2007 performance work first, later to be adapted as an experimental documentary. At the 2011, I did an updated solo percussion, a/v version of it at the Zeitgeist Media Festival in Hollywood, including music from the series as a whole.

Though, it is hard to top this!:

Understanding Truncated Free-Market Thought & General Delusions

This is a response to an email received.

QUESTION:
Dear Peter,

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.”

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.

QUESTION:
Dear Peter,

I was talking to a person in a free-market forum about Structural Coercion and Structural Violence as you often talk about and they argued that you are saying nothing more than “doing work” is Structural Coercion and … [Read More]
