Not essential to the faith

The Zeitgest Movement

I really, really do love YouTube sometimes. I’ve gone from a lukewarm casual viewer when it started back in 2006 (and I really did love those Dave Chappelle and cute kitten/puppy vids), to a “this is the ONLY thing that I’m likely to watch video-wise on my computer” phase. I don’t own a TV and never will, either. If only this shit existed back 20 years ago!

Speaking of shit, the Zeitgeist Movement (TZM) is really good shit. Some of you (especially my non-American viewers) might be aware of it already, since this is the sort of thing that non-Americans would pay attention to as a matter of course.

First, read the mission statement from the homepage.

Second, watch the three films, the earliest of which is from 2007.

Next, for a counterbalance, read something from Richard Stallman.

Finally, listen to Peter Joseph’s amazing marimba version of a J.S. Bach piece that set me down the path to enjoying classical music at age 17.

I won’t spend time and energy describing TZM here. That’s what the websites and films are for. Though I do have some reservations about the movement itself, as does Stallman and other Net luminaries, I really have to give Peter Joseph credit for bringing this to the mainstream. Indeed, as the ‘sphere sets out to do in some quarters, the task before us is to adopt a new way of doing things, because the old one ain’t workin’ anymore. “Reform” is really just patching.
