Peter Joseph[Zeitgeist Addendum] on The Alex Jones Show 1/4 & The Rest
Alex seriously overreacted to the proposed ideas in Zeitgeist Addendum in a paranoid way, check out the documentary Future By Design (and more, obviously) before judging Fresco's ideas entirely if ZA didn't convince you.
Listen to the interview first before reading on... Here are my remarks, obviously subjective preference is involved here, in my opinion the Venus Project is a vision of the future I really like and I don't mind defending it if criticism is so seemingly exaggerated. I just can't help but not vent something after listening to that:
Video 1: Just because Z.A. advocates environmentalism doesn't mean it's part of the damn Global Warming agenda. World unification is not world government. Who's gonna decide - obviously anyone with a brain is not gonna involve the ones in power now. And competition sucks, look at how "happy" the career whore is.
Video 2: Evil to me is born out of ignorance, philosophy 101. I wouldn't claim to know what happened with the crisis 100% for sure. Alex seems to be reaching a little to me.
Video 3: Excellent explanation by Peter Joseph. Excellent explanation of the NWO by Alex Jones from the top of his head, impressive. But lol, Alex wants to take back politics, geez. Representative democracy?! It's a contradiction in terms! It's based on BS! Free market will never get us great products, it's about money, so it'll only get great profits for some. Just like the Nazis? Project Paperclip? etc...
Video 4: 1. Genetics 2. Imprinting 3. Conditioning 4. Learning - Fresco admits he doesn't talk about Utopia, this vid is called "Jacque Fresco - No Utopia". Alex Jones really nullifies his own position here with that religious freak rant, wtf. I nearly laughed but couldn't out of bafflement. Though I did tag this with the Humor label...
The comments against Peter Joseph's docus seem to be either entirely subjective, religious, ignorant, completely ignoring of aspects of the Venus Project's philosophy, or just paranoid. Btw, the last 4 of those intermix. One dude asked me five questions, after saying he checked all the FBD clips, five questions that can be answered by those clips. Predictable. Sorry if I seem overly biased here myself, but honestly, ZA is just proposing ideas and doesn't deserve this overly paranoid treatment. And again I do understand some of the resistance as I personally found FBD a much better illustration of Jacque Fresco's ideas.
Interesting Comments received elsewhere:
Check out this Christian bullshit. An illustration in Confirmation Bias. Reaching as far as they can to find something to hammer on all points of the movie, and fail miserably. Guilty by the most distant "association" is the best they can come up with. Hilarious. Believing and thinking, huge difference. Of course, Christians can't have any solutions, things have to get crazy... cause otherwise Jesus won't have to come back, when is that again?
Occult Symbolism and the sum of it is not a religion, it is knowledge, there is a damn difference. You don't believe in knowledge, you just are aware of it and don't have an emotional attachment to it like a religion.
Theosophy or the New Age movement will never be the new religion. People underestimate the rigidity of Belief Systems. The conspiracy theories that attempt to explain how this will be done would never succeed. Also, slight problem, nobody except the New Agers or Theosophists respect the New Age (stupid and commercialized) or Theosophy (dumb rigid attempt to centralization). Krishnamurti broke from Theosophy. Also, small detail, the Christians want the New World Religion to be Christianity and nothing else. And the atheist/materialists would probably want it to be their belief system. Openminded!
Fresco's ideas are not freaking communism, and they do not involve the current dicks in power to execute it. So replacing the Wage Slavery with being able to Learn & Create/Express what we want and being rewarded for how much we contribute is seen as negative, incredible. You want to keep the Free Market Economy? Tell it to the people making so many Western products for scraps, you selfish assholes.
The people opposing Zeitgeist want to keep hierarchy, competition and poverty. Not only that but Alex Jones talks about "taking back politics", lol representative democracy is a contradiction in terms.
Being aware about the environment is not the same as pushing a Global Warming agenda, and world unification is not the same as world government - it would just mean evolving beyond armies, wars and international corruption.
Use some critical thought. Oh right sorry, I guess the anti-zeitgeist-paranoiacs are in the business of believing and not thinking.
