I want to emphasize that there are good people and advocates in all of these organizations I highlight. What I am pointing towards is the heads of these organizations who are installed to move the group towards the policy of the 1%....locally that is Hopkins. CASA does fine things for Hispanic families no doubt but the Dream Act and in-state tuition for college would be an after-thought to protecting low-wage workers from abuse that shatters and in cases kills people from impoverishment. Also, Third Way corporate democrats are pushing Dream Act not only for Hispanics but as part of the New Economy......bringing immigrants from around the world to work at both the low and high end of the income scale. The 1% needed to have this Dream Act to make recruitment more attractive. Hispanics can benefit but it was not done as a policy for Hispanics already here. CASA was used to promote this policy that most families won't be able to access because of the level of impoverishment.
I wanted to point towards the next round of private non-profits that are emerging. These are organizations promoting the global world strategy. ONE EARTH, ONE WORLD. That is what happens when global corporations look towards empire and not national assets. So rather than working to make a strong nation we look at how to make global societies interconnected. Remember, the wealth inequity that we have in America is mirrored around the world and in most cases the despots at the top of that inequity are graduates of US elite universities. This plutocracy is very small as regards world population but they are now organizing society towards individual global acquisitions. Do you know the Gates Foundation and their global initiative on disease in developing countries? Sounds very noble. I was living in Seattle and at a shareholder meeting a few decades ago when Microsoft shareholders fought the idea of spending billions of profits on this health adventure rather than sinking it back into the company. Gates cooled the dissent by saying that US workers would not go to Africa or Southeast Asia to work if disease was running rampant. This whole disease effort was groundwork for building global markets and sending workers to far reaches of the world. Remember the British Empire and British people sent to India and Africa in colonial empire-building? That is what your Third Way corporate democrat is working towards. Say goodbye to your grandchild if they are successful!
The global organization I referred to above is Zeitgeist TZM. If you listen to the talk you will hear them bad-mouthing the world's elite.....but they represent the world's elite. The idea of sustainability is a good one for all but if you look they are arranging for an economy where most people have no money.....as is true with wealth inequity. They are envisioning less consumption which is not bad meaning less ownership. Say good-bye to the ownership society. See why subprime mortgages targeted the working/middle-class. Home/property-ownership for the masses is not achievable when wages continue to fall to subsistence. We listened to a SharedTool Library, the IndyReader, Baltimore BNotes a grassroots currency based on exchanging an alternate money system throughout small businesses who agree to participate, and Baltimore Time Bank. This movement is being designed and developed at the top by the 1% as a way to segue the majority of the population into what will become a money-less society for the masses as the money will be at the top. These 1% are using the students who simply want to work and earn a living to implement this societal change. DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT SIMPLY RETURNING TO WEALTH EQUITY AND A MIDDLE-CLASS AS CONSUMERS IS WHAT EVERYONE WANTS TO DO. AS AN EGALITARIAN SOCIETY WOULD WE THEN WANT TO BECOME MORE SUSTAINABLE IN CONTROLLING CONSUMPTION? OF COURSE WE WOULD. DO WE WANT TO LIVE IMPOVERISHED AND BE FORCED TO DO IT? NO, WE DO NOT.
VOTE YOUR INCUMBENT OUT OF OFFICE!!!!!!!!
RUN AND VOTE FOR LABOR AND JUSTICE!!!
We all know our college grads are sitting totally unemployed because the Federal Reserve, Wall Street, and your Third Way corporate democrat are deliberately starving the economy and creating the unemployment that forces people into the position of entering into these Zeitgeist Movement initiatives. I have yet to see any of these young people excited by these grassroots societal changes.....they are being forced into it as a way to support themselves. If you look at Baltimore as ground zero for this movement as Hopkins is behind it here in Maryland you see Parks and People sharing gardening equipment, below you see a Tool library meant for sharing, and the IndyReader which serves as an alternative news journal.....greatly needed. All of this suggests people need to be ready for not affording all of these items. So we have Gifting private non-profits where corporations and the rich decide to what they want to invest....let's say the Tool Library for $25,000. They business model is that for the development years of this business it seeks to have you and me donate our tools to share with others. The tool Library then charges a membership fee and small rental charge and you have access to all kinds of tools. Does this sound like Zip Car and Rent-a-Center? That's right. Building a business inventory on donated equipment that grows to be large enough to go private and the investor giving the $25,000 is then paid from what will now be a for-profit business. The IndyReader is taking the Huffington Post model of gathering a bunch of writers who work for free to put their words in print.....not bad....but the model will make those starting this project the ones who get the profits when it grows to be large enough to be a business and go private.....just as Huffington Post did when taken private.
VOTE YOUR INCUMBENT OUT OF OFFICE!!!! THEY ARE ALLOWING THIS IMPOVERISHMENT TO HAPPEN!!!!
I'll use this week to speak about this movement. Again, the people are good people being forced into a societal model they may not have chosen if they could get work in the fields from which they graduated. They can't because of the economy created by Third Way politicians which INCLUDE ALL MARYLAND POLITICIANS.
The Maryland Chapter of The Zeitgeist Movement
will be presenting the new documentary, Zeitgeist: Moving Forward. The screening will take place at The Patterson Theater in Baltimore, MD on Sunday, January 16th at 4PM. Doors open at 3PM, so please arrive early. After the screening, we will host a question and answer session with the audience. Zeitgeist: Moving Forward, by director Peter Joseph, is a feature length documentary work which will present a case for a needed transition out of the current socioeconomic monetary paradigm which governs the entire world society. This subject matter will transcend the issues of cultural relativism and traditional ideology and move to relate the core, empirical "life ground" attributes of human and social survival, extrapolating those immutable natural laws into a new sustainable social paradigm called a "Resource-Based Economy".
YOU SEE ABOVE THE ZEITGEIST MANTRA OF MOVING FORWARD AND THE NAME OF THE PRIVATE NON-PROFIT BELOW MOVING MARYLAND FORWARD.....IT IS ALSO O'MALLEY'S SLOGAN. THEY ARE ALL LINKED TO THE 'NEW ECONOMY' WHERE A FEW HAVE ALL THE MONEY AND THE 99% HAVE NO MONEY.
DO YOU REALLY WANT TO KEEP SUPPORTING AND VOTING FOR THE VERY POLITICIANS MOVING THESE POLICIES TO REPLACE A EGALITARIAN MIDDLE-CLASS SOCIETY? CENTRALIZING ALL ADVOCACY IN A CORPORATE STATE HAVING ONE OF THE WORST CASES OF WEALTH INEQUITY AND QUASI-GOVERNMENTAL AGENCIES IN THE COUNTRY? REALLY?
VOTE YOUR INCUMBENT OUT OF OFFICE AND RUN AND VOTE FOR LABOR AND JUSTICE!!!
Moving Maryland Forward Network
The Moving Maryland Forward Network (MMFN) is part of a bold vision to energize the strength of progressive advocates by connecting new online audiences in Maryland to the long and successful history of Maryland’s advocacy Leaders. MMFN is an initiative designed to transform advocacy campaigns in Maryland by building an advocacy network of Leaders who are capable of moving social and policy change more efficiently and effectively. The project is managed by Netcentric Campaigns and funded by the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation.
The top advocacy Leaders in Maryland are “networked” in a traditional sense. These key players know each other. Many organizations already work in specific coalitions or coordinated campaigns. MMFN is not designed to compete with those ways of working together. MMFN aims to layer in a robust and supportive network structure to complement the traditional and offline work of many good groups working in Maryland.
MMFN aims to ensure traditional organizing is not disconnected from online discussion, online debates and power of online mobilizations. MMFN is designed to engage more people and improve the online and mobile organizing strategies of Maryland’s best advocates.
We need your help to spread the word today, so please take any of the following actions that you can;

IT IS ABSURD TO THINK THAT THIS MOVEMENT CAME ABOUT AS THE BANKS WERE LOADING THE ECONOMY WITH BAD DEBT TO IMPLODE THE WESTERN WORLD UNDER THE GUISE OF 'AVOIDING A MONETIZED CULTURE'. REALLY FOLKS. THE HANDS OF THE 1% ARE AS OBVIOUS AS IT IS BECAUSE THOSE AT THE TOP NOW ARE ABSOLUTE IDIOTS!!!!!
THIS IS CLINTON AND BUSH AND REVOLVES AROUND THE WORK OF THIRD WAY......IT IS WHY THE REPUBLICANS CALL OBAMA AND HIS POLICIES 'SOCIALIST'. IT ISN'T A SOCIETY BUILD FOR THE COMMON GOOD.....IT IS A SOCIETY BUILT BECAUSE ALL OF THE MONEY HAS BEEN TAKEN FROM THE NATION AND EVERYONE NEEDS TO FIND OTHER WAYS TO LIVE!!!!
Zeitgeist Cult Implodes
Posted on | April 25, 2011 |
Zeitgeist, the conspiracy-theory movie that influenced Tucson mass-murder suspect Jared Loughner, also inspired its own cult movement.
Zeitgeist director Peter Joseph Merola became an advocate of The Venus Project, a utopian scheme for a “resource-based economy” proposed by Jacque Fresco, a Florida-based futurist. The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM) described itself as the “activist arm of The Venus Project” (TVP).
Now, three months after the Tucson shootings, a dispute between Merola and Fresco has apparently produced an irreparable schism between TZM and TVP. According to statements made by Merola and by Fresco’s partner Roxeanne Meadows, it appears that the schism developed because Fresco wanted to make a major feature film based on his plans for The Venus Project. Merola viewed Fresco’s film project as impractical and yet, despite Merola’s objections, Fresco began soliciting contributions to produce the film.
Here is an audio excerpt from an hour-long meeting/conference-call. You’ll hear Meadows ramble on for about two minutes before Merola jumps in and starts cussing her a blue streak, describing as “ridiculous” Fresco’s idea for a $20 million movie:
It’s rather ironic that Merola, a critic of the “monetary-based economy,” fell out with his partners over money. And because his utopian partners were impractical. (Imagine that!)
Anyway, I thought you’d want to know what became of this cult inspired by the movie with which the Tucson shooter was reportedly obsessed. As one longtime critic of the cult asked, “Is this how it ends for our friends who were going to remake human civilization in Jacque Fresco’s image?”
