From social symptom to root causes came about as a bi-product of ZDAY 2013 in London, in which all but the introductory talk featured exterior organisations and speakers. Each of whom seek to address a particular social or environmental issue closely aligned with the movement’s materials.

From social symptom to root cause - An 8 part presentation and video series, from the zeitgeist movement

This series came about as a bi-product of ZDAY 2013 in London, in which all but the introductory talk featured exterior organisations and speakers. Each of whom seek to address a particular social or environmental issue closely aligned with the movement’s materials. The reason for this approach was twofold.

A shift in social values

A shift in social values

A new member of the Los Angeles chapter (Roberto Tejada) gave his first TZM Townhall presentation this past June 2014. The topic was about a shift in values contrasting the current monetary paradigm with how our values would differ in an NL/RBE. I enjoyed his talk and wanted to share it here.

The following are my comments in regards to "values" following upon the conversation started in this presentation:

A Call to Chapters

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?

Neither is of more or less value than the other. All of us involved are individual awareness activists. When we organize with others we become a group of activists. There is great benefit that many groups of activists are missing by not connecting with the global network in an official way.

An examination of The Ethics and Economics of Private Property, by Hans-Hermann Hoppe

The Ethics and Economics of Private Property, by Hans-Hermann Hoppe, has been referenced by capitalists for a justification of private property.

The first section is entitled “The Problems of Social Order”.

A Dietary Value Change Required

A Dietary Value Change Required

Part of our transition towards a saner, sustainable society involves a shift in our human values. The Zeitgeist Movement recognizes this -- that, in addition to an upheaval in our economic infrastructure, our values must change accordingly in conjunction. Neither can happen without the other. I think a shift in our dietary habits and values is an absolutely necessary part of this overall value shift to a saner, more humane society.

A Private Members Bill was introduced to the UK parliament on the 26th of June, 2013 called “the National Service Act 2013”. It states that “Every individual who has attained the age of 18 years, and who has not attained the age of 26 years, shall be liable to serve one year of national service
at some point between these years unless exempt.” Furthermore that “Non-exempt individuals who do not serve one year of national service before the age of 26 years shall be guilty of an offence.”

Coincidentally, in the US, the “Universal National Service Act 2013/14” was introduced to Congress on the 15th of February, 2013, which requires two years of service.

BASIC INCOME: A new universal right?

BASIC INCOME: A new universal right?

As a brief intro and due to the first responses on the original Spanish post on my blog I want to clarify that I do think the Universal Basic Income (UBI) is a good idea; however, I think that if we emphasize one single approach, I would not choose this one, and what follows is why. Nevertheless the intention here is to start a dialog on the proposals and how we can expand on them.

The Boston Bombings and The Media

The Boston Bombings and The Media

We recently shared an image to Facebook in relation to the Boston bombings suspect, whom is currently in hospital, and media influences on criminal investigations. It was expected that this image would generate some very emotionally fuelled comments, there were the “kill him” type comments to be sure, surprisingly they were sparsely represented.

Last year it was estimated by the United Nations that it would cost approximately 195 billion dollars per year to feed the hungry. Ironically, Forbes published that the top ten richest people of 2012 had accumulated a net worth of over 450 billion dollars between them. The complete list of a record 1,426 billionaires stated their total combined net worth to be 5.4 trillion dollars.
