Parallel development for The Zeitgeist Movement

Today I was reading The Zeitgeist Movement Defined: Realizing a New Train of Thought, again. I did so because I feel the need to express certain frustration on this/my social movement but haven’t found the right words.

A Call to Chapters

There are many TZM activists all over Earth and each and every one of you are celebrated!

What exactly is the difference between an official chapter and a group of activists?

Universal Basic Income: The trojan horse

I should have written this article about 6 months ago, when I finished my thesis on a Resource Based Economy, but this could not be a better occasion. Due to various circumstances, we find a key to the expansion of an idea whose time has come now. Unlink employment, in the minds of people, from the right to exist.
