Imagine First and then Create

I wrote this essay for a religion class I took at my university. This was before I really was involved or knew anything about the zeitgeist movement. Until I recently re-read it, I did not realize how much it relates. I think a transitional tool could be to have people think about their world void of evil - and then from there try and put it in motion.

“Human capacity for attention is limited.
It must be ceaselessly stimulated,
spurred on by provocation”

- Albert Camus

On Saturday August 4th, the second edition of the Zeitgeist Media Festival was held at the Carlos Martinez Moreno Cultural Center in Montevideo, Uruguay.
Those of us working for social change, although we often have similar goals, tend to forget that there are many people out there who also criticize the current system and propose new ways of living and thinking. Artists, for instance, vividly capture the injustice and inequality of the system we live in, and are able to criticize it in a more creative and provocative way than most can.

You Aren't Free Without Me

You Aren't Free Without Me

An exercise in personification

Hi, my name is Freem. Nice to meet you. Well, I’m not sure it’s nice to meet you yet, but I’m going to find out. I want to learn about you. To be honest, I just want to learn enough about you so that I can figure out what you can do for me. I would really like to know how you can help me in my mission of self-aggrandizement. I like being able to do what I want without restriction.

We've All Got Religion

We've All Got Religion

Several discussions of religion take place here and in other mediums across the movement. Some maintain that religion is incompatible with the concept of a “Resource Based” economic model. Others feel that religion and religious belief will simply take on other less organized and personal forms as the bulk of the population becomes more educated and less subject to indoctrination. It seems to me to be more important to reduce the question to its lowest terms, and to look at the tendency to become rigid and unwavering in ANY belief as the root of the issue.

Before we begin, the subject of social participation in an R.B.E. is extensive, and to those unfamiliar with other discussions of this issue in our materials it can seem complex and foreign. It isn’t the scope of this essay to be definitive as it would be substantially long. The following presents a basic overview along with select points for consideration.
