The Zeitgeist Movement is not a political movement. We are a grass-roots movement in avocation of a resource-based economy, as described in detail by The Venus Project. Our immediate intention is to generate awareness of the concepts involved, working to educate ourselves and each other, as well as our community.
What is the Venus Project?
The Venus Project (TVP), founded by industrial designer and social engineer Jacque Fresco, presents a bold, new direction for humanity that entails nothing less than the total redesign of our culture. There are many people today who are concerned with the serious problems that face our modern society such as unemployment, crime, war, poverty, governmental corruption, starvation, and a decline in the Earth's ecosystems.
The Venus Project is dedicated to confronting all of these problems by actively engaging in the research, development, and application of workable solutions. Through the use of innovative approaches to social awareness, educational incentives, and the consistent application of the best that science and technology can offer directly to the social system, The Venus Project offers a comprehensive plan for social reclamation in which human beings, technology, and nature will be able to coexist in a long-term, sustainable state of dynamic equilibrium.
What is the Zeitgeist Movement?
The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM) is the official activist arm of The Venus Project. The Zeitgeist Movement was inspired by the social response from Peter Joseph's film Zeitgeist: Addendum, sequel to Zeitgeist: The Movie. It was Zeitgeist: Addendum which first introduced the Venus Project. A third film was released in theaters globally on January 15, 2011 and on the internet on the 25th called Zeitgeist: Moving Forward, which focuses on human behavior, technology, and rationality.
