  1. Been following the movement from day 1, even if in a fairly sort of inactive way, supporting online activity and speaking to my own circle of friends, family and fans. Currently collating all my Zeitgeist Movement related bookmarks and reading lists to press on with more serious advocacy work. All the Best TZMUK, keep up the Good Work !

  2. I have just watched the first two Zeitgeist films and will soon watch the third. I consider myself lucky enough to already be ‘conscious’, thus the content didn’t shock me, rather solidify my discontent. It is like a signpost pointing to what I already believe to be true, and discovering this signpost gives me hope that it actually leads somewhere (and I’m not just delusional).

    Anyway, as the Gandhi quote says at the top of the page, ‘Be the change you wish to see’…I want be a part of this movement and do my bit. So perhaps events would be a good start! I will look on the calendar. I’m situated in Manchester.

  3. Hi, New year and I told myself I want to do more with my life and ensure I don’t vegetate in front of the telly or gaming machine. The idea was to find out about local charities and educate myself further as cheap as possible. I came across Moving Forward during a documentary consuming phase and have not stopped consuming TZM information since. Reaffirms many beliefs I have has since I was a small child.

    The realization of a false economy based on debt had never been understood by myself so that is new to me. Although, I have been frustrated with consumer ideology for a couple of decades. I studied Env Science 12 years ago and have lost focus not working directly in a sustainable job, Huh! Had to pay off Debts and service my Mortgage, 🙁

    Any how am in a learning phase and don’t feel comfortable with activism which I am working toward. I need to find my sweet spot, or as Dan Pink might say “Flow”

    I have not joined a chapter yet and want to meet the community a bit more. I could go on loads more but that will do for now.

    So easy to get depressed about it all but I remain positive.

  4. Hey 🙂 Name is Arainn Hawker – living near Taunton – Working as a forest school leader who is just coming out 5 years working in the state controlled education system. It has been 2 weeks from my first viewing of the film series on netflix (gotta love them)- led there by watching films like ” “The Flaw”, “The End Of The Road – how money became worthless” and the amazing “Collapse” and “The Shock Doctrine” – since watching I Have been further and further down the rabbit hole – watching all the interviews with PJ on the web switching between rampant paranoia and ephoria that I put aside my fear and am waking up (matrix moment!:)

    Just want to say working with families in poverty on wild learning project today and having a conversation with a young dad while giving a lift home really (and considering my last two weeks) really brought home to me the reality of “digital poverty” ie not having ready access to internet at home is and what a massive disadvantage that is … no acess to the kind of information I have been imbibing ….Having spent the last !0 years advocating for nature based play and education I find it kind of incongurous that I may have to switch part of my energies to getting folk laptops and wireless connection :/

    I have just taken a deep breath and am going to plough into the orientation literature tomorrowand then work out my best role in the movement…Just listening to the regional coordinators latest meeting download… I think the movement’s role at the moment is opening peoples eyes…”if you are not willing to learn noone can help you. If you are determined to learn noone can stop you” truth is i was unwilling until I came to a personal crisis but now I am determined :))

  5. For sometime I have known the this planet is governed by the “world bank” aka jp morgan and so on. Russia today seems to be the only news channel that can be relied on for the truth. I strongly believe that things will change as more and more people begin to see through corruption and the propaganda that rules this planet.
    Your documentaries are truly enlightening and the word is spreading.

  6. Hi my name is Jit. I am a Hindu, but was born in the UK. I do consider myself to be British although I follow my faith. I recently became a father and that got me thinking about the future more so about my daughters future. I think the world needs to change and when I came across the zeigeist movement it ticked all the boxes. This change must happen for sake our generations to come. It would be dream to see this change in my life time, but this can also be a reality if only more people become aware. Let’s spread the awareness I am on board with the movement.

  7. Its a joke that your movement shares my thoughts and im being told that im sick, ‘out of order’ im completely un-orderly and so i have a ‘disorder’. Not careing is the norm, and im abnormal. please help me, they’ve put me on ‘mood stablelisers’ everyone thinks im crazy because ive broke the programming, if all life matters then save mine, having intellect has bound me, careing has enslaved me,

    • Keep the faith Chris “It is no measure of health to be well adusted to a profoundly sick society” – Jiddu Krishnamurti.

      I just watched the documentary “Food Matters” and apparently a couple of handfuls of cashews has the same theraputic value as a dose of prozac without any of the risks…

  8. I watched the Zeitgeist films and I wanted to find out when the protests in my area are going to start. Just announce when and where on your sight for the northern Ireland protests and I’ll be there. I’m not happy with the world and never really have been. I’m unemployed and content with that as I am free to learn about the world without the need to be a wage slave. I’m happy for the most part with myself but I despair at the blindness I see among my friends regarding there defence of money and its usefulness. I wish they were as happy to live with the stigma of “poverty” as I am. We need to work on the education of every generation of child from now on all over the world if anything is to be done. Our government cannot be trusted to educate our children from now on. Something needs to be done. Maybe volunteers to teach home-schooled groups. Im sure many TZM ppl out there are qualified to do this in there area. As long as the volunteer educators remain unpaid that alone could tech the kids a valuable lesson. In my opinion this is the only way I can see of changing the world any time soon. Good luck everyone 🙂

  9. I suppose I have always felt that the system is flawed and needs a complete deconstruction, I suppose it’s due to my upbringing and the many discussions at the dinner table with my father. My mother is also a former politician and both parents were members of the CND back in the day! Watching the first Zeitgeist movie really pointed me in the right direction, I’ve just finished the third movie and the Resource Based Economy really solidified my own ideas and dreams in my head!

    My opinion, like that of the films is that our energy production needs to be completely Renewable, I think this is really a fundamental basis for our planet to start from. Once Renewables make Renewables, then our energy costs will be Zero!

    My recent experience of being made redundant for a company all about profit to make the people at the top rich and nothing else has left me mentally bruised and at the moment, life is a struggle financially. The company I was working previous to that was a Renewable Energy Company put out of business by a lawsuit that was just made of pure lies by a couple of greedy crooks. You can imagine my anger and frustration with the system!

    I really would like to feel like I’m doing more, join protests, go to lectures, feel like I’m helping our society go in the right direction. I do feel like I’m doing nothing at the moment, although I know just spreading the word and talking about it is the way to revolution. I guess my feelings and opinions translate into the music and lyrics I write for my band!!

    Anyways, thank you Zeithgeist! I need a Brighton chapter to join!!

  10. I’ve been aware of the Zeitgeist Movement ever since the movies came out. The second and third ones had great impact on the changes I’ve been through in the last few years. I already had been questioning some aspects of society, since I’m not from a wealthy background which had an impact on my life, but I’ve never quite seen the depth of the problems, all tied to our society and monetary system. Anyway, all of this to say that the movies helped me put 2 and 2 together. It made more sense.

    I’ve been aware of the main website but am visiting the UK one out of curiosity. I hope someday to be of help, although it would be quite difficult at the moment. I lack courage and self-confidence/esteem to be “out there”, if that makes sense (though that doesn’t stop me sometimes from planting seeds in friends or family member’s minds when I see them).

    I hope with all my heart that someday what the Zeitgeist Movement advocates becomes reality.

  11. Im Rory Jepson, male from north Wales (UK) in my early twentiesand I have just watched the documentaries online extremelyl relieved that there is such a strong movement aimed at improving our society and species.
    Since I was very young ive been disillusioned with many aspects of life but non more so then our discriminations and the monetary system. I follow online people like Russell Brand and other political activists campaigning for reform and equality. The perpetual debt was probably (in my opinion) the most eye opening part of the second film and a point I think should be focused on.
    Also as an avid athiest I loved the first films clinical disproof of many aspects of religeous teachings.
    Currently unemployed and having lost my mother to a short illness a few months ago i feel a bit useless however extremely motivated to do something with my life that may make a difference. The zeitgeist movement seems to appeal to all of my predispositions about society and has confirmed most of them.
    I really want to commit my life to work I feel passionate about at quiet a young age. Hopefully the zeitgeist movement, and what it stands for can be successful and possibly shape my future and the future of our species.
    thank you.
