A thought provoking look at the world
This film shows viewers not to believe anything they read, are shown, or told, and on the official website it says, "It is my hope that people will not take what is said in the film as the truth, but find out for themselves, for truth is not told, it is realised." Which is a true statement to make. For years people have believed only what they have been told to believe when they should be finding it out for themselves.
Another quote i'd like to use is "there are 3 sides to every story. Yours, mine and the truth." (Extreme, from the album "III sides to every story" 1992) The Media has told their story of the world, and Zeitgeist does its best to tell the opposite side, I believe that neither is right, but by researching it further i'd like to realise what the truth is. (an improbable feat, i know.)
I'd like to ask Juha what you mean when you say "we have more than we need on this planet" as i have heard that the population currently is using somewhere in the region of 1.5 times the amount of resources that are available, which makes sense to me if you think about one of the major rules of physics, "energy can not be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another." if the population is increasing constantly, where is all the extra energy coming from to support us all? I would suggest to everyone that reads this to watch Zeitgeist:The Movie and take everything with a pinch of salt, and to treat everything you watch as 'fact' like this from now on, get into discussions/debates with people about everything and anything, to broaden your view on life, and most of all, try to listen as much as you speak.
(feel free to email me with any ideas, I'm always interested to hear others' views)
