Yesterday i watched the third zeitgeist video: Moving forward. For those who didn’t see those videos Zeitgeist is a german word that means the spirit of an era. All the ideas and fashions and arts and achievements and language that describes a society in a certain time. The first video called “Zeitgeist: the movie” talked about three things: The solar gods in which Jesus is classified and the theory about 9/11 being a big set up and finally about the money market and how banks controls society today. It’s really impressive mostly because the author uses facts as argument. There’s no big theory. Just interpretation of facts and i can tell these facts are pretty consistent. I saw the documentary about three years ago and i learned it was the video most ever seen on the web of all times. It’s around 500 million views. Last week i learned the same guy released a second and a third documentary. I watched the third and skipped the second. The idea of the third doc called “Zeitgeist: moving forward” is all around the money system and the money based society. The film does a big research in the next steps of society and tries to prove that it’s impossible to sustain this system for more than 40 years from now without destroying what is left of the planet’s resources. Finally it proposes the end of money. Not socialism or anarchism because those still runs with governs and power. A system with none of these thing. Though it is a really utopian idea for the actual society it makes us wonder how it would be to live in a world with no money and no lack of quality of life for everyone. I have to agree with the author that money is the cancer of our society. In every trade we do the banks can keep a share for them. In every effort we make they make money out of it and then they land us this money we made so we pay interest to have stuff we really don’t need. Soon we are slaved by this process sometimes not even with much choice of getting of not money in the banks. There are many researches not mentioned in this doc about the addictive power of consumption. I believe i’m addicted on buying stuff. In my case usually gadgets and art things. It’s good to watch a doc like this to make us think twice before buying stuff with money we still don’t even earned. The only people who makes money on this idea are bank and i really think bankers should all go to hell. Not when they die. Now!
