Zeitgeist Resurrected

Zeitgeist is a German word meaning “spirit time.” It refers to the spirit of the time we are living in.

Zeitgeist resurrected refers to the video below, Zeitgeist Moving Forward from 2011, as my previous post on Thich Nhat Hanh On Government and Governments Need Mindfulness – Not Enemies.

The movie points out how important mindful consumption is for our world today. We need to move towards a resource based economy and away from a monetary based economy. “Efficiency, sustainability, and preservation are the enemies of our economic system.”

For example, our current rate of oil consumption is that for every barrel of oil that is found, more than 8 barrels of oil are used. This rate of consumption is unsustainable!

Please watch this video with a box of tissues handy!

The first Zeitgeist Movie came out in 2007. At that time, there was a lot of interest in it. We tried to get people to do something and investigated some of the references in the move such as The Venus Project founded by Jacques, the movie about him called Future by Design, and John Perkins and his book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.

Please SHARE this movie with your family and friends in order to gather support for our spirit time!
