Zeitgeist. Grass roots truth?

If you want to watch contrived fiction, go to the theater for your dose of mindless entertainment or propaganda where the good guys always win or love blossoms in the end. Or settle into your sofa to watch TV about mind sinking people like the Kardashians, or swamp guys or censored sitcoms. Or baseball. Make popcorn. But don't think.

Yet if you lean to wondering about what your world is coming to, you just might want to take the time to see a film by Peter Joseph, called Zeitgeist available free to view on YouTube. Maybe it'll make you think. Something which, after seeing this movie, you might consider dangerous. But it just might prod you into asking questions. 

The movie by Peter Joseph is going around a lot right now. I watched it. Some of it replicates the film, Loose Change, a documentary about 9/11 also freely available on the web. (Loose Change is the number one viewed film on YouTube, with Zeitgeist number two.) And if Zeitgeist makes you ask one question, or do your own research into that question, to seek your own answer, it can only be good.

Zeitgeist is a great word. It seems to imply deep philosophical thinking, as if Nietzsche was involved or something. And we look for some Freudian explanation. Zeitgeist seems to emerge from a today-time of turmoil or despair in humanity. Zeitgeist means a spirit of the age and is the current intellectual fashion or dominant school of thought among a certain demographic that typifies and influences the culture of a particular period in time. The time is now. 
But you might even have to be brave to watch this one, the good guys aren't winning, it is not mindless entertainment, no screaming teenagers here, no comforting conclusion, but perhaps it is mindful entertainment that challenges your beliefs. Instigates a world consciousness. Forces you to think. 
If you can do that, be brave and watch. 

You might also watch this interview with Peter Joseph, who is a thinker about society in the mode of Julian Assange with an innate brilliance. - Peter Joseph interview

Dumb Down TV

Gypsy Sisters, Big Bang Theory, The Bachelor, Access Hollywood, Yes to the Dress, How I Met Your Mother, Real Housewives of Wherever, TMZ, Duck Dynasty, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Faster Than a Redneck?, Monday Nite RAW, UFC, Pawn Stars, Hogs Gone Wild, Swamp People, Mike and Molly, Storage Wars, The Office, etc etc ad nauseum. 
Inanity and infinity are in the same direction, you get there by clicking your remote. Don't miss the turn or you might find insanity.

Is there any doubt there is a conspiracy to 'dumb down' North America? The conspiracy is not the people out here believing in something strange going on. It is somewhere in there causing the strange to go on!

 But whatever, something strange IS going on.
