The Global Zeitgeist Movement

From the beginning of human history we and our ancestors have been manipulated by religious and political institutions and their leaders. Religious leaders, typically morally decadent and intellectually dull, have instructed the majority of human beings on how we're to understand God, as if we lack some intellectual and spiritual capacity that they possess. Political leaders, also lacking in morality and intellectual capacity, and inspired by greed and want for power, have worked in league with the leaders of religion, to form a nearly perfect system of mass mind control, until now.

Under modern scientific scrutiny, Christianity appears to be nothing more than an artificially constructed belief system cult, once created by Rome to help unify its empire, while the Jesus of the Gospels was almost certainly nothing more than a retelling of the ancient stories of life of the Egyptian God Horus. And what about Moses? Was the Moses story just a retelling of the story of Sargon, or could it have come from an earlier story about the Hindu lawgiver Manu? If all of this is true, then where does that leave the Judeo-Christian-Islamic religions? You must decide for yourself after watching the Zeitgeist movies.

Statement from the Official Zeitgeist Movie Site:

'Zeitgeist, The Movie' and 'Zeitgeist: Addendum' were created as Not-for-Profit expressions to communicate what the author felt were highly important social understandings which most humans are generally not aware of. The first film focuses on suppressed historical & modern information about currently dominant social institutions, while also exploring what could be in store for humanity if the power structures at large continue their patterns of self-interest, corruption, and consolidation.

The second film, Zeitgeist: Addendum, attempts to locate the root causes of this pervasive social corruption, while offering a solution. This solution is not based on politics, morality, laws, or any other "establishment" notions of human affairs,but rather on a modern, non-superstitious based understanding of what we are and how we align with nature, to which we are a part. The work advocates a new social system which is updated to present day knowledge, highly influenced by the life long work of Jacque Fresco and The Venus Project.

The Grave Danger of a Silent Majority

The following article came to me this morning via email from a member of a discussion on about creating a Department of Peace and Non-Violence within the U.S. government. "Why the Peaceful Majority is Irrelevant" was written by second-generation Canadian Paul E. Marek, whose grandparents fled Czechoslovakia just prior to the Nazi takeover. Although his warning is about the real threat of Islamic fanaticism nurtured in an ocean of a silent majority who chooses to do nothing to change it, his statement is warning call to every human being that humanity's happiness and progress is threatened by many radical groups, and silence is their greatest ally!

Everything about my life's experience up to this point, tells me that Marek's words are wise and true, if not prophetic. I hope that all who reaches my page, wastes no time and forwards that author's timely article to their friends and to other organizations, so that a global dialogue surfaces, about ways to change the "silent majority problem" that's always been the big looser in the face of tyranny and fanaticism.


"Why the Peaceful Majority is Irrelevant"

by Paul E. Marek

I used to know a man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism. 'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care.. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.' We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectra of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.

The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.

The hard quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.

The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet. And, who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?

History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun. Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts; the fanatics who threaten our way of life.
