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]

“Off The Grid” Interview, with Jesse Ventura

June 9, 2015 Admin 0

Big Thanks to Jesse Ventura and the Ora.tv team for the interview

“Zeitgeist founder, Peter Joseph, joins Jesse Ventura to discuss the concept of a resource-based economy. With all of Earth’s resources in decline, it is time to scientifically manage the ones we have left. In this brand new episode of Off the Grid, Peter Joseph talks about the benefits of moving away from a market economy toward one that is based on resource management. According to his model, crime rates would go down across the globe while personal happiness would go up. Do you think Peter is on to … [Read More]

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!:

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.

QUESTION:

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.

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]
