June 14, 2015 Admin 0

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.

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:

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]

“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]

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]

March 25, 2009 Admin 0

Following the release of “Zeitgeist: Addendum” which premiered at the 2008 Artivist Film Festival, winning its highest awards,
the first official “Zeitgeist Day” (ZDAY) 2009 occurred in New York City to a sold out crowd of almost 1000 people,  covered by the New York Times.

New York Times gives a modest but decent review:

“Two hours into Z-Day, the educational forum associated with the online movie “Zeitgeist,” Peter Joseph, the film’s director and the evening’s M.C., stepped out from behind his lectern and walked forward earnestly on the stage.Peter Joseph, the director of two online “Zeitgeist” movies, was applauded after … [Read More]
