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".

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...

One of the best documentaries regarding the application of science since Carl Sagan's "Cosmos"
18 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The filmmaker, Peter Joseph, gathered up some of the best scientists in their respective fields (along with Michael Ruppert, of "Collapse" fame) to present a case for a near-empirical way of dealing with the problems of society.

Any fan of science over opinion, evidence over belief or challenging the status quo in general will find much to love here.

It is seemingly thought of as a political documentary, but technically, there is nothing "political" about it. It takes no sides in the establishment, basing its solutions on evidence (and the scientific method, in a general sense).

This comes off as a radical approach to problems, only because we don't see that in politics. But as far as radical notions go, what Zeitgeist : Moving Forward presents doesn't seem "out there" at all. But the ideas here are really quite universal. They exist in every culture or religion as "goals" or things to work towards. But until now, a clear case hasn't been presented on how to actually get there - how to solve the problems by taking them into account from the beginning.

Strong societies require strong foundations - and not a country in the world currently has a foundation like that.
