AN INDEPENDANT CHAPTER OF THE GLOBAL ZEITGEIST MOVEMENT
A new solution
We never ask, NEVER, how to live…
to live with delight, with enchantment, with beauty every day. We have accepted life as it is with its agony and despair and have got used to it… To live completely, wholly everyday as if it were a new loveliness, there must be dying to everything of yesterday, otherwise you live mechanically, and a mechanical mind can never know what love is or what freedom is.J. Krishnamurti Freedom from the Known
The focus of THE ZEITGEIST MOVEMENT includes recognizing that the majority of the modern world’s social problems, including mounting ecological crises and destabilizing economic inequality (oppression, poverty, conflict, corruption, etc.) IS NOT AN INEVITABLE OUTCOME of our civilization. Rather, TZM sees these issues as consequential symptoms of an outdated social system.
So you realize that society is not performing very well. You care. Great! Now, what to do about it!?? Should you vote for someone?? Should you protest for change?? Maybe write to your local leader to work on the change needed? You hope and maybe even “pray” that government or technology will come to the rescue right?!! Well…. none of that maters at all. Zero. The only thing that can change the world is you and your actions and you won’t change. You won’t even budge. In fact, when true actual change does stumble across your path, you will fight. You will fight with everything in you to NEVER change.
The only obstacle to real change is you. The person in the mirror.
It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.
The socioeconomic system itself is regarded as the root cause of persistent negative societal outcomes, with human behavior and its resulting effects –
corruption, pollution, wars, waste, exploitation, and hence, distortion of values and psychology – seen as symptoms of this fundamental root source.
