FAQ: Is The Zeitgeist Movement related to Peter Joseph’s Film Series?
No. While the word “Zeitgeist” is also associated with Peter Joseph’s film series, “Zeitgeist: The Movie”, “Zeitgeist: Addendum” and “Zeitgeist: Moving Forward”, the film series based content isn’t to be confused with the tenets of “The Zeitgeist Movement” here. Rather, the films were mere inspirations for “The Zeitgeist Movement” due to their popularity and overall message of seeking truth, peace, and sustainability in society.
The term “Zeitgeist” is defined as the ‘The General intellectual, moral, and cultural climate of an era.” The Term “movement” very simply implies “motion” and change, Therefore The Zeitgeist Movement is thus an organization which urges change in the dominant intellectual, moral and cultural climate of the time.
The Movement is not about Comparative Religion, False-Flag Terrorism, Economic Hit-men, Fractional Reserve Banking or the Federal Reserve. The films are unrelated to The Movement in detail and are personal expressions of Peter Joseph. There is often some confusion in this regard and in the most extreme cases some people have the knee-jerk reaction that TZM support’s forbidden “Conspiracy Theories” or is “Anti-Religious” or the like. This type of rhetoric tends to be of a pejorative/insulting nature, used in the context of dismissal of The Movement by an erroneous and “taboo” external association. The fact is, there is no direct association whatsoever.
If you are not familiar with what TZM actually is, please review our extensive literature and video/lecture materials on this website.
