Peter Joseph, original founder of The Zeitgeist Movement, and creator of the Zeitgeist film series, has given the world his next activist creation in the form of the first 30 minute episode of the web-series Culture in Decline. Very similar in content to his past films, the show takes a humorous and satirical look at the current system we are all living in and examines just how absurd and unsustainable it really is. Setting Culture in Decline apart from the films is a fresh and far more humorous approach to the heavy material with the added device of having Peter himself talk to camera and address the audience directly. He effectively grabs the audience by the balls and shows them the reality behind the facade of what we know as freedom and democracy, all the while keeping the tone mostly light and bearable.
This will be great for all those out there who know something’s not quite right but can’t put their finger on it. And of course Zeitgeist enthusiasts. It will also be an excellent tool of introduction for those not entirely familiar with the movement but perhaps are curious. I highly recommend passing this on to family and friends as it is somewhat easier to digest then the fairly lengthy film equivalents, Addendum & Moving Forward.
First Episode below, enjoy:
“Peter Joseph is asking the questions and proposing the possible solutions that we should be demanding from the elected leaders of this crazy world. His brilliant analysis of this ridiculous system we’re operating under is one of the most important voices for change in this generation.”
“Maybe it’s while you’re shopping. Maybe it’s while you’re watching television. Maybe it’s while you’re applying spray-on tanner to your fake breasts. We all have those moments each and every day when we feel, even if just for a second, that we’re living in an illusion, that we have bought in to a paradigm that doesn’t fit and can’t sustain. “Culture in Decline” abuses your illusions and molests your thoughts in all the right ways. Peter Joseph brilliantly and cleverly pulls back the shower curtain to reveal a species circling the drain. Love it or hate it, I promise you’ll never be quite the same after watching it.”
