Renaissance 2.0 (2010)

3

Renaissance 2.0 assumes you have a basic understanding of the monetary system and the problem of exponential growth.

Lesson 1
Revisiting American History:
Documents the conversion of the US into a monolithic financial empire as the Federal Reserve Act created a monopolized cartel of private interests, "Wall Street," that controls all money in the system.

Lesson 2
Revisiting Economics 101 - Debt:
Discusses the power of debt-based money, embodied in the bond market, and its ability to exert total top-down power and control over the empire. Our system is not a free market.

Lesson 3
Revisiting Civics 101 - Ownership: 
Describes how the media projects a false picture in terms of who controls the US. This lesson illustrates the real power structure, which is modeled after the corporate governance system.

Lesson 4.1
Part 1 - The Culture of Empire:
Addresses our wealth illusion, freedom illusion, exponential growth, inflation/deflation, and bankruptcies.

Lesson 4.2
Part 2 - The Culture of Empire:
Focuses on the issue of scale. As the debt-based empire grows, the scale of our system grows causing all sorts of problems related to the loss of meaning, community, freedom, and agency.

Lesson 4.3
Part 3 - The Culture of Empire:
The velocity of money is a standard economic concept, but economists ignore the issue of human velocity caused by the system, which results in the loss of rest, joy, delight, and deeper issues

Lesson 4.4 
Part 4 - The Culture of Empire:
Focuses on the rise of narcissism, increasing pathology and oppression, and how the financial empire eventually replaces government

Lesson 5.1
Part 1 - The Emerging Global Empire:
Explains the strategic global transition we're in as the financial institutions take us through a global restructuring, similar to how the individual states were restructured into the financial empire in lesson 1.

Lesson 5.2
Part 2 - The Emerging Global Empire:
More on the restructuring process and the single, integrated, corporate government the elite is trying to create.

Lesson 6.1
Part 1 - Brightening the Future:
Discusses the powerful monetary vortex that governs our lives day to day; explains the truth about inflation, leverage, and derivatives; and introduces the solution to the vortex.

Lesson 6.2
Part 2 - Brightening the Future:
Discusses how the left vs. right political framework is not the place to find solutions to the vortex because it only fuels the vortex further. Explains what fascism really is. 

Lesson 6.3
Part 3 - Brightening the Future: 
Discusses how to fix the problem and help launch the next Enlightenment to ensure humanity moves into Renaissance 2.0 vs. the next Dark Ages.

Films For Patrons: Donate $5/mo to Gain Access to These Great Films

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations, while 99% of our library is free to access and always will be. The pay-per-view films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patrons, we partner with filmmakers and distributors to provide access to a growing number of films that are normally pay-per-view. With just 24 highly curated films at the moment, it's basically a mini "Netflix for world changers," but its main function is to support the library as a whole.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker or distributor looking to collaborate, drop us a line via our contact page.
