Zeitgeist Movement

Zeitgeist does NOT offer a cure. It offers a mega dose of the disease itself.
With America politicians and representatives ignoring the masses and passing off the debt of banks on to the general public,Zeitgeist Addendum seems to further the cause for this New World Order, neo-socialist paradigm.
The world war marked a climax in the history of mankind, it heralded an era of diplomacy, corporatocracy and finally hypocrisy ;-) . The world as a whole might have taken huge strides in terms of infrastructure, communication , value chain , monetary systems, aid mechanism etc.
Let it not be forgotten, however, that there is another side to the picture. These activities has eroded psychological, spiritual and physical values- of mankind. The activities which must constitute a primary responsibility have taken a back seat in the name of globalization and distribution/creation of wealth - whether natural or human.
The movie at the end of this link (Video) talks about the money creation process - and the inevitable social ramifications and consequences of it. It provides a deeper insight into the agendas of the WTO, IMF and World Bank, and the strategies of the west pursues to clandestinely and rapidly extend its economic empire, without anyone even knowing it is an empire.

The Venusproject is a nice attempt to dream about an ideal society which would conserve all the world's resources as the common heritage of all of the Earth’s people, eliminate artificial boundaries (Osho view point) and then create a resource-based world economy. A few devoted people have dedicated their time to research on these aspects and atleast few people like us must inform others of the humane benefits of this new direction.

The Zeitgeist Movement and Venus Project is not in any way part of any 'new world order' conspiracy. There is nothing inherently wrong with trying to sort out global problems using a global approach as long as coercion and violence is not used. The ZM and VP is basically intent upon the ending of all coercion and violence in all human lives and a level of prosperity and individual human freedom that is almost unimaginable with existing systems, local and global.

I'm not sure how you got the idea of world-order from the zeitgeist addendum, well a resource based economy is and should be (logic dictates) a global system. but these are two very different notions. lets put it this way, the new world order or whatever is more about 'well having'. a few corporations trying to dominate the world so they say. but the resource based economy is about "well being". every individual on earth can be provided with food, shelter, clothing and a relevant education provided we are willing to share the resources of the world and remove the shackles of borders etc.

i watched the zeitgeist addendu about a year and half ago. and ever since i see every sensible man telling the same thing, whether its the scientists, humanist, activits of many kind etc. but they are mostly fragmented and these people do not understand the core problem which zeitgeist has very clearly explained..
lets remove the labels, the zeitgeist or the venus project and then approach the subject of how we as the species is going to survive in a long run.
logic dictates we have to consider the carrying capacity of the earth and a general understanding of how the world works. everything else starts from there. our values have to be shifted from well having to well being. technology used in good cause is the key to our survival even today just like it was in the ice-age and always. if you continue the excercise we will arrive to more or less the same conclusion as the venus project has.
