For the weekend viewing - Zetigeist

This comes from SR for the weekend viewing if you are interested ~~t

You may have already seen these documentaries or may be well aware of their content. If so, please accept my apology for sending you this 'junk mail.'

If, on the other hand, you have not seen them, and are curious, then you may consider book-marking this email or the web-links given below, and come back in installments, whenever you can make the time to see these videos. It does take time.

The first one is a five part video, between 8 to 9 minutes each. The second one is even longer... it has 13 parts, also similar length each, so that would be like watching a full length movie... they could have been shorter and still managed to convey the same content, but, hey, I didn't produce them, so don't blame me. (Actually they both were uninterrupted long videos but whoever put them on YouTube had to chop them up for ease. The last two seconds of each clip overlap with the first two seconds of the next part.)

Inspite of these irritants, I thought it was worth my while to suffer through them. They covers the spectrum...

The first five-part series begins by examining the issue of money, banking but comes back to the US constitution, issues of liberty and more... It is clear and somewhat padantic... but makes the point.

The second (13 part) video (Zeitgeist Addendum) makes several twists and turns, first recaps more or less the same things the first video said and then moves on to politics, war, society, technology, environment, future and so on. Pretty broad in scope.

Okay, enough introduction, here’s the You Tube link to Zeitgeist, The Movie Part 1 (There are 5 parts altogether -- I'm sure once you watch part 1 you can find part 2 right there on YouTube and then find the other parts and watch them yourself by clicking on them). Put together, the 5 parts paint a sobering picture, which certainly seems to have many elements of truth. Some aspects of it may seem far fetched and 'conspiratorial' to the more conservative among you, but just ignore that.

Next, the is the link to Zeitgeist: The Addendum, which is a longer 13-part production. The first half is interesting, though a bit too dramatic in the beginning. It's style and editing at times become bothersome. The screen goes blank for a few seconds, for example, and that is supposed to be some modern film-making 'style' -- but it's just a stupid waste of time... But having said all this, it was not bad at all.

The second half gets too utopian in its outlook, but interesting and different. But despite the few undigestable bits it is worth plodding through if you can make the time. It might not knock off your socks in the end, but you are very unlikely to get bored.
