Santa Barbara Independent, Review: The New Human Rights Movement

October 12, 2017 Admin 0

“No one can accuse Peter Joseph, founder of the global organization The Zeitgeist Movement, of thinking small. Joseph thinks in terms of systems and structures, and in his new book, The New Human Rights Movement: Reinventing the Economy to End Oppression, he offers a comprehensive critique of the market-dominated economic system that has been in place in the United States and large swaths of the world for the past four decades.

Joseph argues that the difficulty with structural oppression — be it economic, racial, or environmental — is that while we all participate in the architecture to some degree, … [Read More]

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]

Top Five “Zeitgeist: The Movie” Myths!

February 22, 2015 Admin 0

Crazy Zeitgeist! OOOoo
Top Five “Zeitgeist The Movie” Myths!


1) The Zeitgeist Movement is all about support of Zeitgeist: The Movie!

Actually, as per my experience over the past 6 years, most within The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM) do not subscribe or agree with this film in general, although mixed reactions are most common. Zeitgeist: The Movie was created years before TZM was formed. TZM was created originally to support Jacque Fresco’s Venus Project (TVP). After TVP and TZM split three years later, TZM became a self-propelling institution with its own body of work. The text “The Zeitgeist Movement Defined” is the core … [Read More]

Understanding Truncated Free-Market Thought & General Delusions

This is a response to an email received.

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.

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.

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]

“Social Pathology”

March 13th 2010, New York City

By Peter Joseph

I’ve entitled this “Social Pathology.” I decided to use the metaphor of disease to describe the current state of social affairs and the trends it foreshadows and perpetuates. I was first introduced to this idea of relating social state to a cellular state by a man named John McMurtry who wrote a book called “The Cancer Stage of Capitalism.” The rationale is pretty simple. Just as human beings have … [Read More]
