I am really inspired by this awesome, catalystic thread (thanks to the OP!) to create this new thread, and see what you all think about this:
Have any of you ever heard of The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM) ?
and watched the very recent widely-successful independent-thearetical worldwide release of their movie Zeitgeist: Moving Forward?
You can watch it for free. The movie/documentary is about 3 hours long, but I have to say that at the very least it's really worth it to listen to what all these group of scientists, thinkers, and many other expertises have to say about why our current world today is so bloody messed-up (ie: "there's something HUGELY terribly wrong happening now" feeling/instincts we all have), and their proposed solutions.
It does really open my eyes, and I'm now even joining the Movement (surprisingly this is a huge undergoing global, worldwide one, with many "local movements" in each part of the planet. the ball seems to start rolling!)
Seems to be a damn better solution than doing nothing at all under our current corrupted "System".
Here's the movie/documentary:
and for more detailed introductions, explanations on "what", "how-to", plans etc etc, you can just go to their official website here:
