  • Hello, this is Peter Joseph of the Zeitgeist Movement

  • and I felt the need today to take a moment to publicly express

  • a few concerns regarding the incredible explosion that has emerged

  • across the world born out of the Occupy Wall Street initiative

  • that began a few weeks ago in New York City.

  • While the mainstream media contends to more or less ignore, criticize

  • and downplay the enormous growth potential and effect

  • this global action against the financial system is having.

  • (Journalist) I think if you put every single left-wing cause

  • into a blender and hit power, this is the sludge you'd get.

  • - Like Woodstock meets Burning Man; meets people with absolutely no purpose...

  • (PJ) The independent media has been shining as the beacon

  • of free speech journalism more than ever.

  • And the interesting thing is the more the mainstream media

  • continues its 'status quo preservation tactics'

  • the more public attention will seek out and support the independent outlets

  • for the power and interest in the Occupy Movement is simply not stopping.

  • As of October 16th, over 1500 cities in the world are now actively taking part

  • in what is likely the largest global action ever seen.

  • And I suspect many others seemingly different economic protests

  • currently occurring worldwide will eventually unify with

  • this global Occupy Movement as well.

  • And while peaceful protest has been a staple of this action

  • police brutality and violent outbreaks are unfortunately occurring in pockets

  • and this is something of deep concern to me.

  • It is one thing for all of us to give lip service to non-violence in such a situation

  • and it's another to be educated and strategic in your work to restrain it.

  • I speak not only to participants here, but also to law enforcement

  • and hence the government and financial powers they represent.

  • In the case of violence occurring within the Occupy Movement

  • it's critical that if you see any person beginning to act in a violent manner

  • you work with others to stop them in a peaceful way or make sure others

  • are separated and not triggered into it.

  • There's an important book that I recommend called

  • 'The Crowd - A Study of the Popular Mind'

  • which takes great care to discuss mass-reactions.

  • While many of us might think we can be completely objective

  • and independent in our actions, the fact is

  • we are deeply influenced by the effects around us.

  • The 'mob mentality' can take hold almost subconsciously.

  • This is very important to recognize within yourself and others

  • in order to be vigilant on both fronts.

  • On that note, it is also critically important

  • law enforcement understand these dynamics as well.

  • If you, the police, expect the crowd not to be violent

  • then a concerted effort to withhold your communication of it, is required.

  • Just as a single rogue person can trigger an entire group

  • to jump onboard with violent acts

  • so do violent actions coming from you, the police.

  • The more you show violence the more likely it will generate it

  • and needless to say, there are many more protesters

  • than there are police and your weapons will be absolutely meaningless

  • if these mobs ever were to turn against you.

  • It is in your self-interest and protection to stop reacting in abusive manners.

  • Every time you hurt or abuse another human being

  • you plant the seed of permission for them to hurt and abuse you and others.

  • You have nothing to gain by using force and everything to lose in the end.

  • Now, that all aside, there's a quick point I would like to make

  • with regard to demands and transition.

  • I don't pretend to know what will occur as this movement continues to grow

  • but unless an informed, relevant set of demands are made

  • its effect will be minimal.

  • It is here I will speak with respect to the values of the Zeitgeist Movement

  • along with my personal views on how we could possibly transition

  • into a more humane, sustainable, balanced society.

  • While many within the Occupy Movement promote various reforms

  • of the current economic and political system

  • others such as the Zeitgeist Movement seek a complete overhaul.

  • It is not the purpose of this video to expand upon

  • the complete train of thought present

  • in the Zeitgeist Movement's observations and proposals

  • but suffice it to say, we seek a system based upon resource management

  • as the starting point of all industrial decisions, coupled with a recognition

  • that the efficiency enabled by our modern understandings

  • in science and technology will be what can provide and meet the needs

  • of the entire human population and create true sustainability.

  • The manifestation of these elements are what will comprise

  • what we often refer to as a Resource-Based Economic Model.

  • To understand the basis of this train of thought more clearly

  • I do suggest two books: one is called 'Critical Path' by Buckminster Fuller

  • and the other is called 'The Best that Money Can't Buy' by Jacque Fresco.

  • From there the reader should begin to see

  • that our current financially based economic model

  • is intrinsically flawed, and no regulation of this system

  • will likely solve the real problems we face at hand.

  • And if this view is accepted; the view that we need to employ

  • a completely different socio-economic model

  • to meet the needs of the human population

  • and become truly sustainable on the planet Earth

  • the question of course becomes: how do we get there?

  • In my personal view, the Occupy Movement could be the seed

  • for a transition out of the current paradigm into a new one.

  • By its natural evolution, the Occupy Movement has characteristics

  • that are very revealing with respect to the true nature of the problems at hand.

  • The fact that this act of contempt is occurring without borders

  • or in certain cases, without even respect to the political system itself

  • rather targeting the financial system, shows an amazing new awareness.

  • My first suggestion is to unify the regional movements

  • into a global entity through representatives

  • where each major region has a personal link to each other.

  • I believe this is starting to occur already.

  • Then meetings need to occur with these representatives

  • to plan more concerted actions

  • to reinforce the global unity and presence.

  • Secondly, a decision needs to be made as to where your main focus is:

  • to keep, but reform the current system

  • or to work to basically remove it as a whole

  • and obviously, there could be a transitional phase

  • incorporating both, as well.

  • Either way, these global representatives would need to prepare

  • a 'World Occupy Conference' at a set location for the media to digest

  • where reform issues are presented, hence pushing recognition

  • by the political establishment and the public.

  • In the case of reform, this is where each regional group gains recognition

  • and organizes themselves to be able to engage

  • their country-specific, governmental bodies.

  • In the case of complete revolution and the interest

  • to remove the model itself and install a totally new system

  • as advocated by the Zeitgeist Movement

  • a more radical undertaking is required.

  • A parallel government needs to be created.

  • Rather than work to get a seat at the proverbial table that exists

  • a new table needs to be created

  • and the representatives of each region are brought in

  • along with legal and technical teams associated.

  • Much detail could be explained on that, but let's leave it there, for now.

  • Eventually, this will create a virtual global institution

  • that begins to prepare the new social system

  • as the old system continues its operation and inevitable failure

  • if you understand what this system is

  • and how it can't resurrect itself at this point.

  • And once the model is defined, a mass-public awareness campaign is commenced

  • as this new, governing body and its work is announced.

  • The tipping point will come once the public begins to see the merit

  • of the new social proposal, hence recognizing the governing entity itself

  • and eventually giving it priority over the prior political establishment.

  • Now, what I've just thrown out here is extremely generalized

  • and I'm sure it raises numerous questions.

  • I only want to express this as a logical train of thought

  • in broad strokes of how maybe, true global revolution could occur

  • and hence plant this seed of possibility and organization.

  • Countless people have been talking about change

  • for a long period of time and my question to you is:

  • are you really prepared to do what it takes

  • to actually get the change done?

  • If you would like to learn more about the Zeitgeist Movement

  • please visit www.thezeitgeistmovement.com and also know

  • that we have over 1000 chapters across 70 countries at this time

  • working in tandem to create

  • the type of social change that I have just described.

  • So, if you'd like to become a part of the movement

  • please go to the movement site, click on the country

  • and go and find a chapter in your region or create one.

  • Thank you for listening.
