I first saw the original Zeitgeist movie in 2007. I was on a search for morality, questioning and searching around to different religions, philosophers, and what not. A friend recommended it to me. I was married, 36 years old, three little kids, job, house. I was blown away by it all. The conspiracy stuff, I believed most of it. In 2008 Zeitgeist:Addendum came out. I had finally found my people. In my spare time for years I watched Jacques fresco videos and always kept up with Peter Joseph. I frequented the message boards, always in support of an RBE, yet always open to new ideas.
2011 occupy movement. I got involved, going downtown daily. It inspired me to be more involved with TZM. So I started a chapter, I guess it was 2012.
We had meet ups and events. Years went by and not much action.

Over the years, I’ve watched the zeitgeist movement decline in popularity. All the while, the train of thought stands true, so I continue to promote it.
One thing that hurt TMZ over the years was all the infighting. Sometimes you become the very thing your trying to defeat. It happens to most social movements. You eat yourself. It was a direct reflection of society, aggressive, I’m right thinking, I deserve success mentality, If we want a peaceful world we need to stop with all the machoism, stop trying to win every argument, but rather learn and help others learn. Stop the competitive 200 country shit, collaborate, possibilities are endless.
The train of thought is solid: intelligently manage the earths resources for the benefit of all.
