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.

Consciousness change and practice to help the movement's impact on our planet

The mission of the Zeitgeist Movement of spreading awareness about a resource-based economy, I feel - and it has been said by other members - is totally connected with an awakening of consciousness happening on our planet. The line of reasoning and critical thinking that leads to advocating a resource-based economy is a part of, and not separate from, the evolution of nature, the patterns of nature, and our species' consciousness in relation to nature. By nature, I mean the universe and its message to us through science.

Spreading the Word Through Consistent Movement Wide Media Programs

As a follow-up to my first blog post (Why We Should Develop a Strategy for Online Activism), I would like to propose an idea that my chapter is currently trying out for the purposes of spreading the word about the topics, ideas, and issues related to a resource-based economy.

Waiting for the Mushroom Cloud

Waiting for the Mushroom Cloud

As an activist doing outreach with the Zeitgeist Movement, I often come across those individuals who believe that the human race is simply incorrigible. The message gets communicated in such responses as, “I’m just waiting for the mushroom cloud,” or “All humans are psychotic,” or “Humans are a virus that needs to be eradicated.” These are actual statements that have been told to me, as if they are the cold hard truth that I must come 'round to submitting to.

Why Voting Matters More Than Ever

Why Voting Matters More Than Ever

Voting is defined as the ability to express one's preference for a candidate or for a proposed resolution of an issue. While the framing of the issues aren't voted on, a candidate for U.S. President is and will be leading our armed forces as well as the direction of our foreign and domestic policy. In less than 90 days, millions of Americans will cast their votes to re-elect either President Barack Obama to a second term, or to shift the socioeconomic trajectory further right with a Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan version of governance.

Political Parties & RBE Transition

Political Parties & RBE Transition

Forming a political party that exemplifies the Zeitgeist Movement's ideals has been a hotly debated topic for as long as the Movement has been around. However, given the apolitical and leaderless nature of the Movement, the global requirements of the Resource Based Economic Model (RBEM), and all of the hurdles and distractions that come along with forming a political party from scratch, it simply doesn't make much strategic sense.

What about “Democracy” in an R.B.E.?

[Originally posted in Aug 2011's TZM Newsletter]

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.
