Local Chicago Group Hosts the Zeitgeist Movement Educational Event
On Monday evening May 3, supporters of The Illinois Chapter of The Zeitgeist Movement will present a free all ages educational event at the Abbey Pub in Chicago, open to the community in honor of The Zeitgeist Movement (www.thezeitgeistmovement.com). The Zeitgeist Movement explores the root causes of the unfolding world financial, environmental, and labor collapses that are not discussed in mainstream press or academia, and offers a viable solution.
The Zeitgeist Movement recently celebrated its one-year anniversary as the activist arm of The Venus Project with over 395,000 members across the globe, proving to be the world’s fastest-growing, grassroots movement for social change to cross all barriers of nations, governments, races, religions, or class. Supporters of The Venus Project strive towards the declaration of all the Earth’s resources as common heritage to all the world’s people, and support the notion that “through the humane application of Science and Technology to social design and decision-making, we have the means to transform our tribalistic, scarcity-driven, corruption-filled environment into something exceedingly more organized, balanced, humane, sustainable and productive.” (Peter Joseph, The Zeitgeist Movement Activist Orientation Guide, 2009). Movement activists advocate moving out of a monetary system into a global, resource-based economy in order to create an abundance of resources to facilitate the elimination of crime, poverty, pollution, and war.
The Illinois Chapter of the Zeitgeist Movement holds regular weekly online meetings to discuss local activism efforts, to educate the community about the root problems of our current system, and how The Venus Project approaches solving these problems, applying the scientific method to a social design to sustain both mankind and our planet.
