Documentary analysis zeitgeist addendum

Probably without us, we are not made for such a world. If true, it would show that the content of Merola's films are driven more by ideology than by fact. I see that as significant progress.

Reception[ edit ] The first film received almost universal condemnation from the media, though it also "attracted massive interest" from the public.

Innuendo like the Bushes knew the bin Ladens, the alleged hijackers have since been found to be alive and well, the inexperienced pilot couldn't have hit the building; and misinformation like straw man arguments mischaracterizing what we all watched that day. Unfortunately, this material is liberally—and sloppily—mixed with material that is only partially true and much that is plainly and simply bogus.

He argues that this belief, coupled with a "clicker culture of mass media," results in a multitude of various truth claims packaged in " infotainment units", in the form of films such as Zeitgeist and Loose Change.

So, we are not only victims, but at the same time people that resist domination, fight back and create spaces of freedom.

As long as the Corbusiers and Frescos of this world do not compel anyone to adopt their visions and suffer their consequences, this might be okay. They grow incrementally and must be functional and habitable at every stage of growth. Could you possibly imagine a world without money? These, and many other tactics claimed by the "truthers" to be evidence that the attack was an inside job, have been thoroughly addressed elsewhere and I'm not going to go into them here. To distinguish himself from the others. The problem with the film, as has been roundly pointed out by academics worldwide, is that many of the conspiratorial claims and historical references are outright fictional inventions. As a matter of fact, world population will most probably peak at 9 billion around It also explains the passion shown by those who defend them: All that matters is "being the one who knows more than you," and the facts are a distant second. The interest on debt held by the Fed actually goes to two places: One, the Fed pays itself out of this interest to cover its own operating costs, and two, the rest of the interest is rebated to the Treasury. Part III states that the Federal Reserve System is controlled by a small cabal of international bankers who conspire to create global calamities to enrich themselves. The Sixteenth Amendment ratified expressly states, "The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

And so, it was from this utopian perspective that the young idealist Peter Joseph Merola set out to first convince us that our current system is fundamentally broken.

I've found no reference to any educational or professional experience pertaining to any of the subjects covered in the movie. The film speculates that under such a government, every human could be implanted with an RFID chip to monitor individual activity and suppress dissent.
