A Different Angle
A friend invited us over last night to watch the film Zietgeist. I had no idea what it was about and was surprised to see the whole 9/11 conspiricy thing slightly re-arranged from the last version I saw a couple of weeks ago and wrote about. (and which no one really cares about,I know, I know) I am fascinated from a sociological point of view, what it says about our present historical moment, that this form of extreme discontent seems so creepily prevelant.
Zietgeist takes a somewhat different approach to get to the same non-conclusion. Whereas Tim's documentary was "faith based", relying on old testament scripture and prophesy to buttress it's revelations, this film begins by deconstructing Christianity and locating it in an astrological/mythological continuim in order to demonstrate the degree to which humans are susceptible to brainwashing-indoctrination-propagandizing etc.. From there we go through the libertarian litany of corrupt monetary policy, central banks, Rockefellers, gold standards blah blah to get to "false flag" operations, Lusittania, Tonkin Gulf etc to finally arrive once again at the pancaking Twin Towers. Skipping the whole Illuminatti, Mason, Bohemian Grove ,Skull and Crossbone angle we go straight to the International Bankers, Central Bank, Federal Reserve cabal to find our evil doers mixed with Bush Family ties and Packistani ISI.
I don't know. I still can't buy in and I still can't figure out what these folks want us to do. The film ends withthe slogan "The Revolution Is Now" but I can't figure out what got replaced by what.
