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.

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.

Who is accelerating our future?

"The historical analysis of technological progress shows that the evolution of technology follows an exponential process rather than a linear one, as we tend to believe."
-Ray Kurzweil

On Saturday 12th October 2013 the city of Bologna will host it’s first TEDx event entirely dedicated to exponential innovation. The fundamental issue of the event will be: “Who is accelerating our future?”

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.
