TAKEN FROM WIKIPEDIA
Zeitgeist, the Movie is a 2007 web film produced by Peter Joseph that presents a number of conspiracy theories related to Christianity, the attacks of 9/11, and the Federal Reserve Bank. It was released free on-line via Google Video in June of 2007.
Part I: The Greatest Story Ever Told
The first part evaluates Christian beliefs established in the Bible and critiques the historicity of the Bible. In furtherance of the Jesus myth hypothesis, this part argues that the historical Jesus is a literary and astrological hybrid, and that the Bible is based on astrological principles documented by many ancient civilizations, especially pertaining to movement of the sun through the sky and stars. The movie specifically mentions the story links between Jesus Christ and the Egyptian Sun God Horus.
Part II: All the World's a Stage
Second Part asserts that the United States was warned about the 9/11 attacks, that NORAD was purposely confused through wargames to allow the planes to reach their targets, and that the World Trade Center buildings underwent a controlled demolition. Additionally, the film argues that six of the named hijackers are still alive, that Hani Hanjour could not have flown Flight 77 into the Pentagon, that the Bush Administration covered up the truth in the 9/11 Commission Report, and that the mainstream media has failed to ask important questions about the official account.
Part III: Don't Mind the Men Behind the Curtain
Third and last part asserts that powerful bankers have been conspiring for world domination and increased power. According to the documentary, the rich of society have been using their wealth to increase financial panic and foster a consolidation of independent competing banks. The film details the Theory of Electronic Conspiracy and claims that the Federal Reserve System, the central bank of the United States, was created in order to steal the wealth of the nation. It makes claims of war profiteering by a rich few. It describes the goal of these bankers as world power over a controllable public. This section also claims that there is a clandestine movement to usurp the American constitution and dollar by merging the USA, Canada and Mexico into a North American Union, a super-state similar to the EU. The movie claims that this has been done without the ratification of congress and is promoted as the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America.
WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE FINISHED
I saw this movie last March, mainly because of the persistence: "OMFG! You must watch this!" Coming from my work colleagues and clan mates.
After seeing it last March, let me echo the sentiments with "you have to watch this." It's hard not to feel something after watching this very ambitious documentary, be it anger, fear, hatred or confusion. Zeitgeist is about how information is fed to us and taken as fact. The topics of religion, terrorism and war are the primary focus.
It maybe be exhausting and sometimes annoying, but its a worth two hours time.
