This thought-triggering documentary weaves interesting knowledge on such fundamental topics as religion, 9/11 and the banking world in less than 2 hours. I had to hold onto my chair.

Zeitgeist

The first part (starting at 9:35) tracing the origins of Christian religion back into ancient times, and illustrating the astrological change of Ages currently happening was especially interesting. The second part (@35:54) provides an overview of the 9/11 events within 35 minutes (well done!). The last part (@1:09:17) on the banking and financial business is also very well put together.

All in all, an informative documentary which will trigger opinions and can be quite confronting… But allowing oneself to hear the kind of questions Zeitgeist asks can be very rewarding in the end.

Check out the official website for the movie and more, including subtitled versions, sources and an interactive transcript.

Some people reassure me about mankind (and, for that matter, about manhood). Michael Franti currently is one of them.

And if you’re American, you should care!

Living in Europe allows me to keep my head in the sand most the time with regards to what our great (American) leaders are doing to our country and the world beyond it. However, every once in awhile – hearing e.g. about Iraq or 9/11, or seeing how the Netherlands are also, slowly but worryingly, becoming a big-brothered herd of sheep – I feel the urge to hear from upset Americans and see what’s on people’s minds.

Being that I caught the flu last weekend and have remained mostly bed-bound these last days, I’ve had plenty of time to browse for material to satisfy my curiosity.

I came across these 2 movies. They are scary, upsetting and what Bush would call ‘unpatriotic’. I would highly recommend you set aside some time to lift your own head from the sand/daily rat-race and see what’s in store for us, and what we are supporting by fueling the economy with our daily work and tax dollars.

  • Iraq for Sale: on war contractors and profiteering. How “disposable” non-military contractors are conveniently unaccountable for Abu Ghraib torturing, how the companies have done anything but protect the troops and instead succeeded in making as much money as possible from the $billions the US gov’t is pouring into the war effort by the quarter. Open the video and fast forward to minute 57 for a sample. Total duration: 1h15 mins. Directed by the same guy who made Outfoxed (about Fox “fair and balanced” News).

Watch the movie here. The official website is here.

  • America from Freedom to Fascism. This movie explains that the federal income tax is voluntary (not mandatory) and is being enforced illegally, and how its proceeds are in fact not used to the American people’s direct benefit – have a look at the interview with the guy who wrote the tax code for starters (load the movie and fast forward to 30:30). Sound amazing yet? The movie also argues that the Federal Reserve System is really a private company which managed to get the monopoly on issuing dollar money and charges the government (i.e. taxpayers) interest on
    money it “lends” to it. The movie finally touches on the planned introduction of a national ID card and its subsequent replacement with body-implantable microchips, which would be required to interact in society (i.e. to identify yourself and to buy food) and could be used to track people, cash and goods. 1984 is so yesterday…

Click here to watch the movie (1h47), or click here for a 15-minute trailer. The website is here.

Yours truly,

We the People.

Amidst all the noise about this whole Iraq war stuff, I believe Cindy Sheehan‘s voice is one that deserves to be heard – if only for her courage. While dubya was addressing the media with this year’s State of the Union, Cindy was getting jailed for wearing a T-shirt.

Here’s the story, straight from Casey’s Mom.

Saddam and his fellow defendants are charged with the torture and killing of 148 men and teenage boys from the town of Dujail, 55 kilometers, or 35 miles, north of Baghdad

I naïvely hope this means that Rumsfeld, Cheney, Bush and Co. will also be charged and tried for the same crimes.
