Take it as you will, this is the second part to the Zeitgeist Movie, available free for anyone with a computer. As a friend of mines father said about the first movie, if only 1% of it is true the world is a fu@ked up place.
The first movie goes through the gamut of the history of religion, the idea of 9/11 being a false flag operation, the history of the privatization of the US banking system via the Federal Reserve, one world Government, the North American Union and the New World Order. Along the way there is a hypnotic soundtrack which features video clips and audio from the movie Network, Bill Hicks, Lou Dobbs, Martin Luther King, George Carlin, among others, and quotes like the one posted above.
Like I say, you can see it for many reasons, I watched it with some friends last year while the NY Jets were doing really crappy, and I did learn a lot about the Federal Reserve and religion. As far as the 9/11 stuff, that is up to you to sift through. The squeamish may even chose to skip through the section if they so choose. Was it worth it, definitely better than watching your run of the mill Hollywood junk, a lot better than watching the Jets get pummeled.
The first movie gets a whopping 8.7 out of 10 stars from almost 7,000 voters at IMDb (Internet Movie Database) and the most helpful comment I read was by The Goat:
Very compelling, definitely don't believe everything you hear, do your own research!Link to the original: ZeitgeistMovie
I've watched this movie about 4 times by now, will definitely watch it again as i show it to others. Many interesting arguments, many good points.
While this film is aimed to prove everything presented as truth, one should watch this with an open mind. Take in all the topics, then do your own research, just with any speaker/film/presentation. To blindly follow is pure ignorance.
I do not believe everything in this film. I do however think that everyone should see it if nothing more than a thought experiment. You should be aware of all sides of an argument as to make your argument more effective.
Here's Part 2, which starts off real slow, but gets interesting when they talk about the monetary system and Corporations, it speaks of free trade and sweatshops, Wal-Mart and Bechtel, there's some talk about how profit rules over people and while the first movie left you with a sense of fear, this movie seeks answers to get our world on the right track.
Chalk this up as very interesting, at least in my book, and a lot better if you watch part 1 first. Is there truth in this movie or is this wingnut conspiracy stuff? I'll leave that up to you to decide. Absolutely a great view if your pissed about the bailout.
Blue Pill/Red Pill?
Neo: What truth?
Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born inside a prison that you cannot smell, taste, or touch. A prison for your mind. (long pause, sighs) Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself. This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back.
(In his left hand, Morpheus shows a blue pill.)
Morpheus: You take the blue pill and the story ends. You wake in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. (a red pill is shown in his other hand) You take the red pill and you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes. (Long pause; Neo begins to reach for the red pill) Remember -- all I am offering is the truth, nothing more.
(Neo takes the red pill and swallows it with a glass of water)
