Storyline

A feature length documentary work which presents 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".

Quotes

[first lines]
opening title card: In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable, and help to change it. - Ernst Fischer
voiceover-collage: ...deadly riots over the government's plan to avoid defaulting on its loans... is that the unemployment keeps rising, and it has to keep rising just because it has an excess supply of goods... because this is all borrowed money that our kids... and our debt is owned by banks...

Moving Forward
18 January 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Indeed this movie is not for people with short attention spans, but truly it is very relevant material -- fundamental even.

Thanks "god" this movie was made. Much gratitude for all those involved.

The core brilliance, in my opinion, is how the Transition is proposed, by demonstrating how a virgin Earth (with no prior humans) could be cared for if we inherited Terra at this stage our our species development.

What remains is that it can be done, (sustainability, preservation, and optimum efficiency) and the choice remains with us. Is this something we want? Do we want World peace? Do we want Global Abundance?

If so, then it's time to make that declaration and act on it.
