IMPORTANT: MAKE VIRAL - Deprogramming Zeitgeist Movement, Venus Project Cult Members - March 28, 2011
Zeitgeist (German pronunciation: [ˈtsaɪtɡaɪst] ( listen)) is "the spirit of the times" or "the spirit of the age."  Zeitgeist is the general cultural, intellectual, ethical, spiritual, and/or political climate within a nation or even specific groups, along with the general ambiance, morals, sociocultural direction, and mood associated with an era.
The term zeitgeist is from German Zeit- 'time' (cognate with English tide and "time") and Geist- 'spirit' (cognate with English ghost, without being really translatable into English - this is why the German term is used).

The concept of Zeitgeist goes back to Johann Gottfried Herder and other German Romanticists, such as Cornelius Jagdmann, but is best known in relation to Hegel's philosophy of history. In 1769 Herder wrote a critique of the work Genius seculi by the philologist Christian Adolph Klotz and introduced the word Zeitgeist into German as a translation of genius seculi (Latin: genius - "guardian spirit" and saeculi - "of the age").
The German Romanticists habitually attempted to reduce the past to essences and treated the Zeitgeist as a historical character in its own right, rather than a generalized description for an era.

The Venus Project is an organization that promotes and advocates American futurist Jacque Fresco's visions of the future with the aim to improve society by moving towards a global sustainable social design that they call a "resource-based economy". Such a system incorporates sustainable cities and values, energy efficiency, collective farms, natural resource management and advanced automation, focusing on the benefits they claim it will bring to humanity as a whole.
The name of the organization originates from Venus, Florida, where its 21-acre (8.5-hectare) research center is located, near Lake Okeechobee. Within the center are ten buildings, designed by Fresco, which showcase the architecture of the project. Future by Design, a film about the life and work of Jacque Fresco, was produced in 2006.
It works alongside the Zeitgeist Movement, which functions as the activist arm of the Venus Project, allowing members to communicate and work on projects within the movement.
Now you know something about the 'Venus Project' and Zeitgiest it is time you looked behind the curtain.
From Hitler to Venus: The Venus Project, The UN, and the NWO
If you don't feel like being taken over by the New World Order, I beg you to visit my blog and read this article about The Venus Project. Please keep in mind that I'm not "bashing" anybody. I'm being quite serious. I used to be a huge fan, but then I figured out what's really going on, and it's nothing new. If you're currently involved in this movement, then please know that I am in complete solidarity with you in spirit. We want the same things. But I'm just trying to warn you that they're lying to you, and that this is really a government operation. I have plenty of facts to back to this up. It involves some connecting of the dots, and hard-core members will always remain in denial, but please take the time to think about this because it's important. Thank you.
Here's an excerpt:
"Please keep in mind that the ruling elite, ultimately, don't want money. As The Venus Project itself aptly points out, money is not a resource. What they ultimately want is total control over all the Earth's resources in the form of a "global resource management system" in which a small group of technocrats will have control over all the planet's resources. In the latest film, "Zeitgeist: Moving Forward," Peter Merola tells us exactly what they want, which is "total Earth resource management and processes" in a "global economic management machine." In this machine, private property will be done away with and everything, even the natural resources in your own backyard, will belong to the system. Again, this is completely in line with Agenda 21. The message of globalization is loud and clear.
The fact is that human beings lived on this Earth, in harmony with nature, for hundreds of thousands of years without any global authority having centralized control over all the Earth's resources (or people's thoughts). We can live this way again. And if we're all using common sense, there's no reason why we can't have sustainable technology without the control of a New World Order."
UPDATE: I've added more information, more videos, and more funny demotes! I've included some background information on PJ Merola, as well as some disturbing quotes from Zeitgeist followers. I elaborated on Agenda 21 and The Kyoto Treaty. I also included more information on Michio Kaku and his bullstinky excuse for the massive bird deaths, which he says to expect more of and "get used to."
If you read the comments below my article, you'll see a comment from a Zeitgeister named Laura who openly supports the NWO. It's not uncommon to hear this among Zeitgeiters. I swear I am not making this up.
In the video below, PJ Merola slips up big time. He says, ""Hopefully when my new film hits it will spark a great deal of interest and railroad people into uh...railroad people into...well, railroad's not the right word (nervous laughter)...."
One of the biggest tools to bring about the 'NWO' is the United Nations. UN-Agenda21 is at the heart of the 'Sustainable Developement, Smart Growth, Zeitgeist-movement and the Venus-project. We the ordinary people at the normal levels of society are being used to bring about their 'NWO'.
Get informed, get out of this cult and help fight it!

UN Agenda 21 - Coming to a Neighborhood near You
By Scott Strzelczyk and Richard Rothschild
Most Americans are unaware that one of the greatest threats to their freedom may be a United Nations program known as Agenda 21. The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Division for Sustainable Development created Agenda 21 as a sustainability agenda which is arguably an amalgamation of socialism and extreme environmentalism brushed with anti-American, anti-capitalist overtones.
A detailed history on sustainable development, definitions, and critical actions can be found here. Section III of the Agenda 21 Plan addresses local community sustainable development. The Preamble and Chapter 28 discuss how Agenda 21 should be implemented at a local level. The United Nations purposely recommends avoiding the term Agenda 21 and suggests a cleverly named alternative: "smart growth." The United Nations Millennium Papers - Issue 2 (page 5) says this of Agenda 21 and smart growth:
Participating in a UN-advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy-fixated groups and individuals in our society such as the National Rifle Association, citizen militias and some members of Congress. This segment of our society who fear 'one-world government' and a UN invasion of the United States through which our individual freedom would be stripped away would actively work to defeat any elected official who joined 'the conspiracy' by undertaking LA21. So, we call our process something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management, or smart growth [emphasis added].
Undoubtedly, residents of any town, county, or city in the United States that treasure their freedom, liberty, and property rights couldn't care less whether it's called Agenda 21 or smart growth. A recent example of this can be found in Carroll County, Maryland, where a smart growth plan called Pathways was drafted by the County Planning Department. The plan, if enacted, proposed a breathtaking reshuffling of land rights:
* Rezoning of thousands of acres of beautiful, low-density agricultural farmland and protected residential conservation land into office parks
* Down-zoning of agriculture land to prevent future subdivision by farmers
* Up-zoning of low-density residential land around small towns into higher density zoning to permit construction of hundreds or possibly thousands of inclusive housing units, including apartments and condominiums
* Inclusive housing with placement of multi-family construction on in-fill lots within existing residential single family communities
* Endorsement of government-sponsored housing initiatives (subsidies) to ensure healthier, balanced neighborhoods
Carroll County, Maryland is one of 1,168 cities, towns, and counties worldwide that are members of the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) - Local Governments for Sustainability, which is an international association of local governments as well as national and regional local government organizations that have made a commitment to sustainable development. The ICLEI mission statement closely resembles that of Agenda 21. In fact, the ICLEI has Special Consultative Status with the UN Economic and Social Council and coordinates local government representation in the UN processes related to Agenda 21.
Community leaders working together in Carroll County recently defended their county against overreaching smart growth initiatives. Richard Rothschild, a candidate for Commissioner, emphatically remarks, "Smart growth is not science; it is political dogma combined with an insidious dose of social engineering. Smart growth is a wedding wherein zoning code is married with government-sponsored housing initiatives to accomplish government's goal of social re-engineering. It urbanizes rural towns with high-density development, and gerrymanders population centers through the use of housing initiatives that enable people with weak patterns of personal financial responsibility to acquire homes in higher-income areas. This has the effect of shifting the voting patterns of rural municipalities from Right to Left."
Smart growth plans usurp property rights and constitutional rights. Local officials, at the behest of State Government, revise zoning laws to fit into a "smart code" zoning template. A massive reshuffling of property rights ensues. Farmers may lose subdivision rights; conservation land adjacent to population centers may be rezoned into commercial employment centers; and low-density land in small towns is re-designated as growth area and rezoned to accommodate diverse housing including high-density apartments and condominiums.
Finally, a healthy dose of federal- or state-sponsored housing initiatives is embraced to ensure communities are properly balanced. The net effect of these plans is to create highly urbanized population centers throughout otherwise-rural counties, while simultaneously limiting the availability of land for suburban and estate subdivisions, as these are considered an unsustainable waste of land by Agenda 21 disciples.
Clearly, smart growth plans will impact Americans' future choices in where and how they live. Furthermore, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other federal and state agencies may attempt to deny grant funds to states and cities that do not adopt smart growth plans.
Most Americans will remain unaware of the implications of smart growth and Agenda 21 until after it is promulgated in their own backyards. Ironically, these plans are more insidious than the Eminent Domain ruling by the Supreme Court in the case of Kelo v City of New London. Under Eminent Domain rulings, property owners usually receive compensation for their losses.
Conversely, smart growth municipal plans, required by statute, enable municipalities to change zoning laws and engage in other regulatory actions that devalue property, restrict off-conveyances, and otherwise erode property values without payment of any compensation to the property owner.
Smart growth has another interesting unintended consequence: it can disrupt conventional alliances and lead to strange political bedfellows. Rural urbanization plans may raise the ire of environmental groups while simultaneously stirring the wrath of both conservative and liberal residents that want to maintain the rural fabric of their communities. Conversely, developers, sensing opportunity, may side with government smart growth bureaucrats in support of these plans.
Regardless of political orientation, two indisputable facts remain. Agenda 21 is a direct assault on private property rights and American sovereignty, and it is coming to a neighborhood near you.
