Zeitgeist - follow up
Really I just want to point out a page on Zeitgeist the movie.com, the Statement page. It seems to me that a lot of people are hell bent on bringing anything they can down, especially on the internet. Is everything perfect? Is everything always 100% accurate? No. Why though? Because we each write our own truths. That's why I find it funny when the internet says something isn't true, or that it can't find the facts on the internet to back that up or what not... finding facts on the internet is the dumbest thing in the world. By saying that you are saying that you are relying on someone else to have entered the facts 100% accurately and without error onto the internet. Meaning a person created whatever page you are viewing and taking as fact. I've been reading a lot of criticisms about Zeitgeist lately and I would have to say that the same thing with SiCKO is now beginning to happen with this movie. The nitpickers and the point-missers are digging in and do what they do best... changing the subject. I read a review, and you can find it if you search the Zeitgeist comments in the archive, and basically it was saying that Zeitgeist is just trying to make you mad, and with anger we'll get what we want but basically be lured into something worst. Personally I do thing we should be angry, I think will anger, enough people will do something about the shitty state the world is in. Does that mean that everyone should run around with pitchforks and torches? No, anger does not need to dominate the emotions and the solution, but it's a hell of a motivator! I'm glad that people are seeing the movie, I'm glad that I'm helping people see the movie and will continue to do so. But I will never give a lazy answer like I fact checked this movie on the internet... that's not research. Research can not be done on the couch, I'm sorry it just doesn't work that way. One site actually said there were no credits, no there isn't. But there's a lovely Source Page that pretty much tells you everything that would be in the credits. Really the site meant to say, "There's no credit for who made this." Since I don't believe we can grow or solve any problems by suppressing each other's first amendment rights I posted the comment that "inspired" me to remind everyone not to get lost in the argument, not to get lost in the "facts" and the copyright, don't let people change the subject until we've changed the world. Here's a link for my Zeitgeist article so you can check out the comments and read someone else's train of thought on this subject.
