A Paradigm Shift

This film series shifted an entire paradigm for me: (this is highly recommended viewing)


The Zeitgeist Film Series is about examining the world we share, the values we prop, the problems we face, along with what we can do to make it better.

As the word ” Zeitgeist” connotes, we are dealing with the” intellectual, spiritual, ethnic awareness of the time” and the goal of this project is to explore what fixes us who we are, how we associate, what we are doing and what we should be doing if we wish to live in a harmoniou, humane, sustainable and healthy global civilization.

The Zeitgeist Film Series is also a media project designed for public consumption without the limit of most copyright limits. All cinemas, while technically copyright to engagement monetary abuse and exploitation, are universally available for duplication, private screenings and digital distribution without the need for allow- just as long as there is no fund involved in those actions. 

As far as autobiography, the assertion of ” Zeitgeist: The Movie ” is not what numerous premise. The original Zeitgeist was not a film, but a accomplishment portion, which consisted of a vaudevillian vogue multi-media event working preserved music, live instruments and video.[ The only known( camera phone) tape is affixed here .] The happening was given over a 6-night stage in New York City and then, without the best interest to professionally secrete or render the exertion, was ” tossed” up on the Internet arbitrarily. The make was never designed as a film or even a documentary in a conventional smell- it was designed as a creative, agitating, emotionally driven showing, full of imaginative frontier and heavily stylized gestures.( For more about the evolution of” Zeitgeist, The Movie” satisfy see the Q& A at www.zeitgeistthefilm.com)

However, once online, an unexpected deluge of interest began to generate. Within 6 months over 50 Million views were recorded during Google Video counters( before the latter are reset for some rationalization ). Suddenly “Zeitgeist” the affair, grew” Zeitgeist: The Movie “. The current combined thinks threw the number of Internet panoramas at over 300 million as of 2013.

In turn, their own decisions was made to make a follow up in 2008 entitled ” Zeitgeist: Addendum “.( www.zeitgeistaddendum.com) Originally this was going to conclude the Series, feeing ideas of resolve for some of our ongoing social troubles. Yet, this work have been successful in provoking a mass change of attention, provoking the developing an activist formation now called The Zeitgeist Movement. This Movement, founded by Peter Joseph , now labor globally to spread information about a brand-new social reorganize theories. However, this is an aside for the Zeitgeist Film Series, while a source of inspiration for The Movement which shares the call “Zeitgeist”, is not to be confused with the content/ the opinions of the films in detail, who the hell is personal to Peter Joseph alone. The Zeitgeist Movement is an fiscal/ sustainability movement at its core and its relationship to the Film Series content is not in tandem.

On January 15, 2011, the third largest of the sequence, ” Zeitgeist: Moving Forward “, was released independently in over 60 countries and in over 30 conversations with over 340 screenings worldwide. Likely the most significant independent documentary release of it genu in history. This more traditional, interrogation located documentary concentrated on the very fabric of the social order: Monetary-Market Economics.

While the majority of the world today have slowly come to see some basic breaches in the economic system we share, as large scale indebtednes defaults, inflation, industrial contamination, rich depletion, rising cancer proportions and other signposts emerge to bring the concern into the realm of “public health” overall, very few nonetheless consider the economic paradigm as a whole as the source. The partiality is to ask improvement in one place or another, shunning the opportunities that perhaps the entire system is fundamentally shortcoming at the foundational elevation. ZMF presents the subject that it is, surely, the highly foundational mechanics of this system that generates the patterns of demeanor and unsustainable the methods used in deport that are leading to the massive spectrum of harmful ramifications both personal, social, and environmental and the longer they go on, the worse concepts will become.

 This film series has created a new reality in the way I currently view the world we live in. This will be a reality check for anyone who watches. I have watched the entire series at least 5 times and every time, I grasp another piece to the puzzle.

I just finished reading your article on A Paradigm Shift and loved it. You hit the nail on the head. The problem is, people know there is something wrong but deny it because the impending consequences are too much for them to comprehend. In other words. People are in denial. In order for mankind to achieve a new paradigm shift. We have to get away from identity and geo politics which poison humanity as a whole. Most people are good despite what we see on the news. People need to work together and get over themselves. That means everybody. There… Read more »
