The Defective Day Part 2

The Defective Day Part 2

Read Part 1 here

The morning after the field trip, I awoke to the sight of the sun cautiously breaking the horizon outside my window; manipulating the sky into an array of bright and fiery colors. I pulled myself out of bed and watched the glow for a few short seconds, and then noticed the moon off to the left, slowly fading into the day time. In a quick motion I set my hand on the window and arranged my thumb and index finger on the moon, pulling them apart to zoom in. The grey sphere enlarged and I could see the ships entering and exiting the lunar docks. My parents had traveled by orbital maglev to the moon two days ago for a vacation after a long work session attempting to create matter without the empty space between the atoms, as a method for drilling to the center of planets. They deserved the time away on the moon.

Universal Basic Income: The trojan horse

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.

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.

Firearms Deaths Are No Small Matter

Firearms Deaths Are No Small Matter

This image making light of firearms deaths has been floating around Facebook for a while now. What should be immediately striking is the poor use of statistics that have clearly been used in an attempt to forward an agenda. One may suspect that this little piece of propaganda is the work of an N.R.A. (National Rifle Association) member. It would appear to imply that guns in society are the absolute last thing we should be worried about.

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

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.

Developing a Plan to Move to a Truly Sustainable Future

Developing a Plan to Move to a Truly Sustainable Future

Sustainability is one of the buzzwords of our modern age. Yet there appears to be no consistent agreement as to what is actually meant by this term. To me, the implication has always been that sustainability requires a level of resource consumption which can be maintained over the long-term, with no net drawdown of the resource. This is the complete opposite of the philosophy of growth, which dominates current-day government and corporate thinking. Physical growth of any sort is not sustainable for prolonged periods of time.

The Root of All Evil?

The Root of All Evil?

•••

Toward the end of the '70s and early '80s I began to be preoccupied with the problem of justice and injustice. I began to realize that there could be no justice in this world with the working people being exploited. They were getting meager earnings while their exploiters were enjoying the benefits of their hard labor.

We Are Not The 99%; We Are The 100%

We Are Not The 99%; We Are The 100%

It has become an almost mainstream view that it is us, the ninety-nine percent, vs. them, the one percent, and while on the surface that would very much appear to be the case, if we bother to take a closer look at the situation it becomes evident that that is, in fact, not the case.

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.
