The Federal Reserve Bank: A history of its formation and ability to control the economy.

Dionysus mother was not a virgin, she was Semele and was seduced by Zeus numerous times. He was not born on 25th of December, he did not perform miracles, he only caused madness. He was not called "King of Kings". The symbol of Dionysus they present is ORPHEUS VAKHIKOS. This is a small artifact which dates back to 300 A.D. that shows a man tied on an anchor not crucified.

Actions, not questions
18 February 2008 | by TudorVieruSee all my reviews

zeitgeist, like the man from earth, is not meant to provide answers or change conceptions, but simply presents a possible path of evolution for mankind. I've met many people that were not able psychically to conceive that such a massive conspiracy could actually exist. I guess this is the most difficult thing to believe. To be pulled out of a world that makes sense and that they can understand and suddenly to find themselves alone facing a brutal system, governed by secrets and lies and manipulations.

It is best to ask question, but it is better to do something about it, rather than feeling sorry for yourself.
