In the first hour, George spoke with Peter Joseph, the writer, producer and director of the controversial documentary Zeitgeist: The Movie(1) and its sequel, Zeitgeist: Addendum(2). The films explore "the myth of religion, the myth of 9/11, and the myth of the financial system," according to Joseph.
Joseph described our current monetary/labor system as "inherently corrupt." The system creates "aberrant behavior," he noted, and is not designed for humanity to live together. Joseph believes "through technology and modern knowledge we have the ability to create mass abundance of all the necessities of life." He also talked about The Venus Project (thevenusproject.com(3)) and its goal to redesign a social system that benefits humanity and is in line with nature.
