The Zeitgeist Movement Defined is the official representative text of the global, non-profit sustainability advocacy organization known as The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM).

This tediously sourced and highly detailed work argues for a large-scale change in human culture, specifically in the context of economic practice. The dominant theme is that the current socioeconomic system governing the world at this time has severe structural flaws, born out of primitive economic and sociological assumptions originating in our early history, where the inherent severity of these flaws went largely unnoticed.

However, in the early 21st century, these problems have risen prominently, taking the consequential form of increasing social destabilization and ongoing environmental collapse. Yet, this text is not simply about explaining such problems and their root causality - It is also about posing concrete solutions, coupled with a new perspective on social/environmental sustainability and efficiency which, in concert with the tremendous possibility of modern technology and a phenomenon known as ephemeralization, reveals humanity's current capacity to create an abundant, post-scarcity reality.

While largely misunderstood as being "utopian" or fantasy, this text walks through, step by step, the train of thought and technical industrial reordering needed to update our global society (and its values) to enable these profound new possibilities. While this text can be read strictly from a passive perspective, it was created also to be used as an awareness or activist tool. The Zeitgeist Movement, which has hundreds of chapters across dozens of countries and is perhaps the largest activist organization of its kind, hopes those interested in this direction will join the movement in global solidarity and assist in the culmination of this new social model, for the benefit of the whole of humanity.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A "must read" book for every human being! 3. Februar 2014
I have been interested in the ideas of the TZM for the last couple of years. This book gives a great overview of the underlying ideas and concepts. If more people think globally, hopefully we will be able to change things for a better world. Especially all decision makers and politicians should at least get a basic understanding of the concept of globally limited resources and the problems of our current socioeconomic systems.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic read, paradigm-shifting ideas! 31. März 2014
This book gives you a really good insight into what the Zeitgeist Movement is all about, and how they want to arrive at their goals. The ideas presented in this guide (which can also be legally downloaded as a PDF for free, just google it) are absolutely mindboggling and at the same time very reasonable and developed.
Anyone interested in activism, sustainability, the human condition, ecology, economy, technology, sociology or psychology should definitely read this book! Since ages have I not been so intrigued by a train of thoughts, and what a beautiful train it is!

The paperback is definitely worth the buy for this low price, but as I said, The Zeitgeist Movement is a non-profit organization, so you can also download the PDF version legally for free. The Kindle edition is also ridiculously cheap at roughly 2$.

5.0 von 5 Sternen If you want to overcome ... 1. April 2014
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
... your own cultural socioeconomic belief systems this is the right book for you. Our current fear and competition based socioeconomic ideologies are unsustainable, destructive, decoupled from reality and provide no solutions for real life problems such as technological unemployment and the destruction of our society and biosphere for profit.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely Amazing Detail and Vision 2. Februar 2014
Von Sam R. - Veröffentlicht auf
The Zeitgeist Movement Defined is so much more than a treatment on the interests of the global sustainability group known as The Zeitgeist Movement. With almost 900 footnotes/sources this thing is a beast of detail and knowledge about a vast range of social issues that relate to industry and culture.

Having already read the book online, I was initially expecting much of the same when it comes to the interest in creating a new social system based not on money and business but on scientific resources management. Yet, again, this text provides calculation details, transition ideas, a vast and almost tedious treatment on the flaws of the market economy, a thought provoking view of lifestyle, human behavior and much more. I recommend this not only as a activist tool to spread the great work of this non-profit org and help society transition, but also as a sociological text book and about future possibility for universities.

I also challenge anyone to read this cover to cover and see if they can remain in support of market capitalism given the vast degree of inefficiency and detriment it has and is creating. The statistics and facts presented are not mere opinion. They are rigidly sourced and explained. The section on "Post-Scarcity" was particularly profound as there is no doubt we can create a global abundance in the world today through technology and the financial system only now works to inhibit humanity - not progress it.

Finally, many who know TZM know it used to work with The Venus Project in up until 2011.
Once again, when this book was published I assumed it would be a regurgitation of the same basic data Mr. Fresco (and R. Buckminster Fuller) talked about. Again - it goes so much farther in detail and thought than Fresco and Fuller when it comes to actual application and form of the new social model, research and ideas! Get it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very well written and informative. An essential tool in discussing the necessary transition ahead. 4. Februar 2014
Von S. Black - Veröffentlicht auf
For the past 6 years The Zeitgeist Movement has been educating society that the problems we have today are not political or even economic. You learn how to look at the source of the problem and come to discover that no one is at fault, the system is working as it was designed. Unfortunately for everyone, the system is not compatible with technology and it is time we upgrade to one that is.

Through every transition in history, we upgraded our societal operating system. We are at that point again and it is more important than ever that we do it soon because all of the problems of the world today are unnecessary and have real solutions.

Level 1 Nomadic and cave based humans - capable of only sustaining themselves, their mate, and their children.
Level 2 Hunter-gatherer humans - capable of sustaining their group.
Level 3 Agriculture humans, - capable of sustaining their towns.
*Level 4* Industrial human - capable of sustaining their cities, their nation, and nations in desperate need. (Where we are now)
Level 5 Technology human - capable of sustaining the world and the entire human population at a high standard of living. (If we apply our technology, we can be here)

Our futures have such potential if we just work together a little bit to make this transition. Your life will never be the same.

This book gives a clear and thorough explanation of what the Zeitgeist Movement is all about, and what is they aim to do to help bring about real and concrete changes to our society for the betterment of the human species and the planet as a whole. Definitely worth the read if you're at all interested in the movement/and or what they're trying to do.
