  • Thank you.

  • One human family living on one organism.

  • Yet man is embroiled in a war against himself.

  • Unfortunately this bleeding truth hasn't yet been realized by the vast majority of humans living on Earth.

  • The war against ISIS, Russia and now laughably Venezuela

  • are dominating the headlines in the latest front of the information war

  • but a far more deadly war has been waged against the organism that we all share.

  • We face the most severe environmental crisis in the history of this planet.

  • Deforestation is at the rate of 36 football fields per minute.

  • Floating trash island the size of Texas across the Pacific

  • and half of the world species has been wiped out in the last forty years

  • because of habitat loss and pollution.

  • And just the last thirty years climate change has already caused a tripling

  • of natural disasters with scientist predicting irreparable tipping point by the year 2020.

  • Ironically that's the same year that Obama has pledged to cut carbon emissions by 17%.

  • 17%! WOW!

  • Well, how can climate change solutions be taken seriously without a massive overhaul of the agricultural industry

  • without a complete termination of military industrial complex.

  • The Pentagon is the biggest polluting institution in the world

  • and is exempt from the all international climate treaties. “Good jobguys.

  • The climate change disinformation campaign has gone to a point of such absurdity

  • that Texas's state Environmental Protection Department

  • STATE DEPARTMENThas banned the use of the terms climate change and sustainability in all reports and emails.

  • That's the point we are at now.

  • It's an issue that should supersede politics

  • but a corporate controlled press run by oil and gas

  • won't dare undermine its sponsors.

  • And the establishment showcases alternate reality.

  • Media hysteria abounds about planes and Iran's non-existent nukes

  • yet there is an eerie, eerie calm about the issues that most severely impact us

  • and what we can do to fix them.

  • Of course the population remains dumbed down

  • complacent and willfully blind.

  • Maybe the CEOs' lobbyists and politicians are shortsighted

  • because they are all building their own Elysium and they don't give a fuck if we all die

  • but the majority of them are inevitably just changing deck chairs on the Titanic and they know it.

  • Deep down everyone knows the truth.

  • Every last vestige of this precious planet has been pillaged without consequence.

  • Endless consumption and unfettered capitalism will not and cannot last!

  • And every single empire falls.

  • That's just matter of time.

  • The system blatantly protects the bottom line,

  • resists any substantial change with military force

  • and police aggression to keep the old guard.

  • The Elites at the helm will never capitulate their security for the good of humanity

  • and I don't know how about you but once the system doesn't work for 99,999 % of us,

  • might be time for a new one.

  • I know all of you guys know this already otherwise you wouldn't be here

  • and thank fuck for Peter Joseph's

  • not only incredibly mind-blowing three-part documentary series Zeitgeist,

  • but first follow up work with the Culture in Decline.

  • All necessary mandatory viewing for everyone

  • and all which dismantle this toxic conventional wisdom that strangles us in our mental development

  • And I'm more than ecstatic to be part of annual event.

  • That offers a different path than the crash course

  • of hell - that humanity is bulldozing down and Peter's work really helped me.

  • It helped my political awakening a lot.

  • Before RT I was doing anti-war organizing

  • but once I saw the media selling the Iraq war across party lines

  • I realized that there's something very systematically wrong and corrupted and it crossed all barriers

  • and I realized that media was really the number one battle

  • because if you don't have a platform to tell your message, no one will hear it.

  • And seeing the power of Peter's video work

  • to shatter religious, political, economic dogma inspired the hell out of me.

  • And I was also inspired by the trajectory of the series

  • which not only deconstructed the systems of control

  • but presented an entirely new realm of possibilities.

  • Around that same time I started a little website called Media Roots.

  • It started as a hub for sensitive information and it grew into multimedia,

  • citizen journalism project

  • which eventually brought me to Russia Today and then Breaking the set.

  • And it was a dream job to attack power on an international platform

  • but I decided that I want to be meeting the people behind the stories

  • and telling them myself independent from any State or corporate entity.

  • I don't just want to react to mainstream media's circle jerk off fuckery.

  • These issues deserve in depth analysis and substances discussion

  • which is everything that we've seen here today.

  • Hence the problem with the 24 hour News cycle, right?

  • It incessantly reacts to what these corporate elite assholes create for us.

  • That's their reality.

  • And just to emphasize this point Bush lackeyyet I don't know if any of you know who Karl Rove is -

  • brazenly told the New York Times back in 2004, a reporter name Ron Suskind, he said this:

  • We are an empire now and when we act we create our own reality.

  • And while you are studying not too judiciously as you will

  • we'll act again, creating other new realities.

  • Which you can study too and that's just how things will sort out.

  • We're history's actors and you, all of you will be just left to study what we do.”

  • Unfortunately he's right.

  • Reality is dictated by out of touch warmongering elite

  • that doesn't apply to the reality that 99,9% of us live every day.

  • And it's only able to sustain on fear and war.

  • And there's nothing the establishment fears more than a populace not living in fear.

  • People are disillusioned of course. They've been called crazy.

  • they've been called conspiracy theorists for wanting more than two parties in America.

  • For questioning ludicrous, paradoxical foreign policy.

  • They also want sustainable energy!

  • ¾ of Americans want to transfer to wind.

  • 71% wanna transfer to wind power, I'm sorry, solar and wind

  • according to Gallup in 2013.

  • I'm not sitting up here saying I have all the answers

  • and I don't think anyone out here claims to.

  • But a technological Resource Based Economy is the most thought-provoking and ground breaking solution

  • I've seen in the crises of civilization we face.

  • And there's an extensive roadmap on how to get there.

  • We don't have to wait for anyone but ourselves to start implementing the ideals either.

  • Because we are all agents of change, we are all vessels of truth

  • and we can push our communities towards seismic sustainable shifts in the way we live right now.

  • Other countries already have a different approach.

  • I recently had the chance to visit Cuba

  • and not like has the country have a complete organics renaissance

  • but there aren't commercials telling you what a worthless piece of shit you are

  • and also there's no corporate chains that have eviscerated local culture.

  • The most spectacularly is Cuba's medical internationalism.

  • It sent the world's largest contingent of doctors,

  • 66 different countries have helped the professionals operating right now,

  • and it has a medical school that trains people for free to become doctors.

  • Of course it wasn't out of altruism.

  • The long imposed economic blockade on Cuba has forced it to become self sufficient

  • and fiercely community-oriented.

  • Clearly the country is far from perfect and I'm not saying that communism

  • obviously I know that that's not the way to go.

  • We've seen it failed time and again.

  • But the obvious take away

  • remains in the tremendous amount of good that can be done with such little resources.

  • I mean if this is what an economically crippled nation can do

  • what can the richest country in the world do with the resources that we have if people came first.

  • Of course every government that has tried to incorporate different economic models gets systematically crushed,

  • USA ideas out there around the world subverting every sort of alternative

  • with covert spending for regime change.

  • In Cuba still despite normalization process they're spending 20 million dollars a year on the ground.

  • 56 years after the Cold War and America can't let a small socialist nation live in peace.

  • It's fucking unbelievable and Venezuela... Obama just announced it's an extraordinary security threat to America.

  • He has quote deep concerns about its human rights abuses.

  • Yet America's staunchest ally Saudi Arabia summarily executes people by sword,

  • public floggings of bloggers at public squares, it's quite astounding.

  • Of course these issues are deep-routed and they're deeply interconnected.

  • This is about hegemony and the clutches of global capitalism will not give up easily.

  • The system can't afford alternatives.

  • And we've seen how far it will go.

  • With no remorse, it's a machine that runs on death and destruction,

  • having institutionalized structural violence that kills millions of our brothers and sisters every day around the world

  • and we can't sit idly by and be passive actors watching this happen.

  • No one has to go without water in Detroit or freeze to death in bombed out Gaza.

  • Because we have the resources to provide everyone.

  • Would you like your mother or brother starve to death in the streets? NO!

  • Because we belong to the Commons and the Commons belongs to us.

  • The revolution of values is an extension of empathy and understanding, compassion, humility globally.

  • It means the shattering of the illusion of me as separate from you,

  • as us as separate from the dirt under our concrete jungle.

  • It comes with expending consciousness, media, literacy, critical thinking and sharing this information

  • and most importantly it's about being the change

  • building the alternatives ourselves!

  • That's why I believe that this movement is unstoppable.

  • The ideas it's spawned will create the reality, our reality of a sustainable future

  • Because if we don't do something drastic

  • we'll just become casualties in the war being waged against us and every living thing on this planet.

  • On this pale blue dot.

  • As Carl Sagan said:

  • In our obscurity and all these vastness there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.”

  • Thanks.

Thank you.
