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.

After a long summer of renovations, the Institute for Resource-Based Economy (IRBE) is proud to announce the opening of a Tool Library in Toronto!

A Tool Library is like a library, but rather than books, it lends tools and machines to design or repair items.

This approach lowers the unnecessary consumption of tools, such as a drill that is used a few hours in a year, reduces the consumption of resources to build them, saves on shipping and transport, and spreads the collaborative philosophy and thriftiness.

With a small annual subscription (from $50 to $100) members can take advantage of the full range of tools. These subscriptions can also be deducted through free hours of volunteer work.

The Tool Library contains many courses that teach a variety of skills, such as how to build a 3D printer, how to assemble a PC, how to install Linux, etc. Imagination is the only limit!

The space of this Tool Library is three times larger and includes an on-site Makerspace with a 3D printer and a woodworking shop fully stocked. Now you can build your dream projects on the spot instead of buying them at the superstore.

Location and Hours : Toronto Tool Library & Makerspace
Media: Torontoist, Toronto Star, MakersNation

Greetings!
The Tool Library team

Market Fundamentalism as a Religion

Market Fundamentalism as a Religion

Modern economic theory is presented as a science. Elaborate mathematics and diagrams are employed to derive principles that are assumed to be universal among economic actors, even though the specialized math used is a “dated version” (Keen 6) and such diagrams “often contain outright fallacies” (Keen 14). After a closer examination of the dominant economic theory and its critics, one might come to the conclusion that it is actually a belief system quite similar to a religion, not an actual scientific study. The following definition of religion is given by Clifford Geertz:

The Ongoing Zeitgeist/Liberty Movements Debate: A Review

A discussion between Adam Kokesh and Peter Joseph earlier this year has inspired me to shed light on the critical exchange taking place between The Zeitgeist Movement and Liberty Movement. As can be seen in an interview with RT's Abby Martin (watch@22:50), I am not the only one who has noticed an emerging polarity within the greater movement.

CALL TO ALL DEVELOPERS, ARTISTS, AND CONTENT CREATORS

“The position of the artist if humble. He is essentially a channel.” - Piet Mondrian

On August 20th, 2013 I released to the public a fully functioning prototype for a project that I’ve been developing for nearly 5 years. I believe this project could greatly benefit from constructive feedback and assistance, so therefore I am addressing the only group I am aware of that is overall, the most likeminded to my values: The Zeitgeist Movement.

How would you feel seeing your children forced to participate in any war that the Government considers “just” ?

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.

TZM Italy | 3D Printers for a better world!


Donate here: http://www.kapipal.com/3dprinter4world
Let's figure out to have at home, in the office or at school a revolutionary, environmentally friendly device which is useful in daily life and allows to save money and to stimulate our creativity.
Everyone knows what a printer is, but very few know that there are now 3D printers, and even less people know that some of them are Open Source and that nowadays the most advanced models of these printers have come to the point of being able to print almost anything: even houses and human organs!

The Zeitgeist Movement Italy and Open Source Ecology Italy plan to build two 3D Open Source printers to be used for demonstrations in public and private schools of Naples and Milan, in order to raise awareness on public's opinion on the collaborative Open Source philosophy.
