Zeitgeist movie analyze the events of Christian myth and the conspiracy of 9/11 attacks claim that bankers manipulate the media and international monetary. The Zeitgeist movie starts as an art and eventually spread to become the key player used by Christianity and the soldiers in the war (Griffin 8). Many people have commented and criticize the movie in what they term as it contains inaccurate information and it is also considered to be poor quality documentary.
The film contains a lot of different socials events that is displayed has being promoted in the society. It is important to many authors of the past because they use the movie to describe our society and the way people perform their activities. The movie depicts how the machines were introduced into our society and how they work for us (Swimelar 12).
In view of Christianity the movie gives many examples of why Jesus is not real. In the movie it is describe that Jesus was born on December 25, and this is simply sun worship. The early organized church decided what day Jesus was born; most churches today do not suggest that Jesus was born on December 25 they to choose that day as a celebration of his birth (Asimow 656).
December 25 was however chosen by early Catholic Church for the reasons given in this movie, so Christianity would allow celebrations to occur on the same days as it had always been celebrated (Brooker 4). This is a very simple and known truth even in many Christian circles and organizations. Here it is changed or twisted by giving just the information that suits the author. This movie uses the same techniques of bad Christian leaders of the past. Truth is difficult in this time when our culture media is full of moral relativities and extremism.
A lot would need to change if this is to become a reality in the world we live today. First, the financial department would have to begin channeling its efforts into producing the technology suited for such a civilization.
Essentially the biggest problem would be that there would need to be substantial financial support to create a cashless society. On the other hand as machines begin to take over jobs people are becoming unemployed and more people are falling into poverty. For the people to realize the importance of technology, someone would have to come into power to influence the entire world to submit to a new system.
In the movie there is more that motivates people to compete and progress than money. The motivation for progress is survival. Unfortunately money equals survival in our society, if that were not the case perhaps we could focus more on our survival as a usually thing in the long run as opposed to just in the present days. I admire what is being said in these documentaries however I believe that the only thing that can possibly spark a revolution in our society is some globally catastrophic event like zombies.
In our society what brings innovation is necessity and not competition amongst us. Albert Einstein, Galileo and many others did not make their major contributions to society because of competitive incentive they did so because they had a divine interest in the issue (Brooker 20). Furthermore in the documentary it emphasize that there have been countless research studies done that show that innovation is higher in more equal societies.
Change can only begin with you because you are the system and you are the society. When individual behavior change the society change too. Look at how your food is produced and shop accordingly, look at the impact of your job and improve it.
Also as we get beyond our attitudes toward our system which is based on rampant exploitation we can see that not only money is necessary but a complete hindrance to real progress (Asimow 662). The job scenario is simply to force you to conform to that which is utterly unworkable so as to keep you in order. Working for long hours alone is bad, we must cooperate with each other so that we achieve better results.
It is only in dream in we belief but unless we accept to change, it will remain such until we are no more in this planet. We need to struggle hard and strive to achieve the work we desire. I wonder to find that the lessons in the movie are important to my social life and development. This was mainly because I have realized my constitutional connection to every form of life on this planet and the responsibility inherent in such a truth. Though it seems of little consequence mostly because the individuals who are drawn to the perspectives offered here are those who seek substance (Brooker 25).
For example, the obviousness of the propaganda is permanent because the view of existence has rooted on people who want to benefit from it. Primarily the arguments posed by all of the zeitgeist documentaries to date have taken a masculine approach to problem solution and in so doing they have ensured their defeat (Chance 40). It is coupled with the fact that there is in no true movement only the comforting notion of a possible one makes this. I am truly grateful that such a source of skillfully collected knowledge is available but I can not ignore the contrary nature of the information presented.
The movie is important to our precent life because it enable people to give views about the ways of living. Also the movie the documentary work which helps the community in time of transition. It feature documentary work which precent the needed for transition of current socioeconomic monetary paradigm that governs the entire world. The movie shade light in term of development in the society.
