SYNOPSIS: Zeitgeist: Moving Forward, by director Peter Joseph, is a feature length documentary work which will present a case for a needed transition out of the current socioeconomic monetary paradigm which governs the entire world society. This subject matter will transcend the issues of cultural relativism and traditional ideology and move to relate the core, empirical "life ground" attributes of human and social survival, extrapolating those immutable natural laws into a new sustainable social paradigm called a "Resource-Based Economy".


Now, historically, the public assumes that certain actions are “moral” and others are not. Lying, for example, is considered “amoral” both by common religious and legal codes...but what exactly are they referring to? What level of lying is “real”?
The fact is, every single act of monetary gain is based on a form of dishonesty... only this dishonestly is simply retermed as “competitive”. In the marketing world everything is driven by “advantage”. The “competitive edge” is nothing more than a passive corruption where competing companies seek to “out do” each other in whatever way they can for the sake of market share. The very act of seeking differential advantage is to be engaged in the abuse of another person or group. Regardless, our social system at large chooses to collar this understanding and instead imposes punitive reactions to what the system defines as "socially offensive behavior” (or crime) while, in fact, ignoring the root causes of most of these so-called “criminal” actions - along with overlooking the other “accepted” forms of dishonesty present.

As an aside, the resolution of “offensive” human behavior can only come from an adjustment of the social system. There is no such thing as a “criminal” as we are all products and hence the victims of the culture which we are born into.

Now, before we begin, there is one more thing I would like to hesitantly point out - criticism of the current financial order and hence the profit problem does not automatically mean the person presenting such a challenge is a "Marxist" or a "Communist". Yes, the preceding statement is likely comical to those who are accustomed to thinking critically... but sadly I need to point this out, for we can rest assured that a great number of people reading this article will simply try to find a way to reduce it to “Marxist Nonsense” - a thoughtless, capitalist catchphrase I have grown quite bored with. One of the greatest forms of imposed inhibition comes from creating associations that have been traditionally forms of imposed inhibition comes from creating associations that have been traditionally defined as  "dis-proven", “discredited” or the like. This is an age-old propaganda tactic to create uncomfortable, inconvenient and controversial associations in order to derail critical thought about specific "taboo" issues. Like a religion, the monetary system and the “theology” of the “free market”, is no exception. The high priests of our current economic model naturally come in the form of “monetary economists” which work in a field that is provably decoupled from any type of natural scientific order in regard to what actually sustains human life on this planet which are natural resources and the scientific method. The only viable economic model that can possibly exist in any civilization must be explicitly based on resource management and preservation. The market system that currently exists in the world today is an utter failure in this regard and in fact works in a reverse capacity - perpetuating exploitation, pollution, and psychological neuroses.
