    Ever wonder why the economy is structured the way it is? Why there's so many religions with so many parallels to Christianity? Why your life is constantly bombarded with meaningless trivialities like celebrity, fashion, consumption, and beauty? Why your personality doesn't seem to matter? Do you have two hours or so?

    I tell you what, even if you've only got 15 minutes, just watch this movie. It's the most incredible thing I've ever seen. It explains the attitude of Western culture at this point in history, how it has evolved, and how it is following the historic patterns of powerful civilizations.

    Please, watch this and tell as many people as you can about it.

    Seriously, I'm not a big believer in conspiracies and such, and I know that probably a lot of what this guy says is total bull, but the way it's presented makes for a very compelling case.

    I want to watch it again on mushrooms.

    This reminds me of Bodysong. But, not as good.

    No, I know that it's got some pretty outlandish statements but the most impactful thing about Zeitgeist is the big idea: that the population is so busy focused on the THINGS of living that LIVING itself gets forgotten about.

    I was wondering when this disc would start getting out.
    The first 1/3'rd you can just totally ignore-cause you can't concievable speak and be an authority on things that happend well over a thousand years ago...stilll

    The parts about the FEDERAL RESERVE, Prescott BUSH, and the beginnings of WWII and the justifications of U.S. Involvement of the wars in Vietnam and presently in Iraq are on point.

    Your blind if you think this thing has NO valid points.

    It's true, they don't. All that matters to the people in power is staying in power and becoming rich(er).

    The whole thing about the banks makes a lot of sense to me. I've read similar articles about them. It's pretty scary.

    I've always heard the George Carlin rant about religion, but I never really understood the power the church and the government have over people.

    GIVE THEM MONEY!!!

    I just saw on the front page the other day how the Vatican had to pay another 50 Million for protecting child molesting priests.

    They just keep coughing up 10 million, 20 million, 50 million....no prob.

    1) Why do they move these priests and hope it'll all blow over. What kind of a freak finds out a guy is molesting children, has been for decades sometimes, and then tries to PROTECT the guy?

    2) Where does all that money come from? While Catholic converts in developing countries are starving to death because they have 20 kids because using condoms is a sin, the Vatican is paying millions and millions to cover up the child molestation that is rampant in their ranks.



    Beyond repulsive.

    The thing that gets me about this is aren't homosexual relations a sin? Why aren't these priests kicked out of the church for engaging in an act they so vehemently abhore?

    It's funny, a few years ago I started going to church again and another of these scandals broke out, just before they started passing around the collection plate they made a point of saying the money collected wouldn't go to the priest defense. Well, since all their money comes from donations like this or bake sales and stuff, where's the money to defend the priest coming from? Maybe NAMBLA stepped in and gave a big donation.

    If George W. Bush wore a black feather boa and grew a handle-bar moustache he'd be just like Jesse "The Body" Ventura.....without the body.

    Love this movie.

    "We Shall have world government whether or not we like it. The only question is whether world government will be achieved by conquest or consent."
    - Paul Warburg, Council on Foreign affairs/Architect of the Federal reserve system.


    One of the scariest quotes I've ever heard.

    Hey everyone, check this guy out. Ron Paul. He's running for Prez. He wants to abolish the federal reserve, get rid of the income tax, stop the North American Union, pull out of Iraq, reduce gov't spending and get rid of the patriot act. He's the real deal.

    From what I understand, all his campaign donations are free of corporate dollars.

    I've never really considered myself a Republican, but I believe in this man's cause. I'm going to register Republican and vote for him in the primary.
