Addendum notes

November 8, 2009

Taken from the transcript of Zeitgeist: Addendum (www.zeitgeistmovie.com)

Physical slavery requires people to be housed and fed. Economic slavery requires people to feed an house themselves.

It is one of the most ingenious scams for social manipulations ever created, and at it’s core it is an invisible war against the population. Debt is the weapon use to conquer and enslave societies, and interest is it’s prime ammunition.

“There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by the sword. The other is by debt” – John Adams, 1735-1826

“Greed and Competition are not the result of immutable human temperament… greed and fear of scarcity are in fact being created and amplified… the direct consequence is that we have to fight with each other in order to survive.” – Bernard Lietaer, Founder of EU currency system

“What’s in it for me?, is why people think. And so if a man makes money selling a certain product, that’s where he’s going to fight the existence of another product that may threaten his institution.

“…therefore, people cannot be fair. And people do not trust each other. A guy will come over to you and say ‘I’ve got just the house you’re looking for’… he’s a salesman. Whena doctor says ‘I think your kidney has to come out’, I don’t know if he’s trying to pay off a yacht or that my kidney has to come out. It’s hard in a monetary system to trust people.” – Jacque Fresco

If a company dumps toxic waste into the ocean to save money, most people recognize this as corrupt behavior. On a more subtle level, when Walmart moves into a small town and forces small businesses to shut down for they are unable to compete, a grey area emerges. For what exactly is Walmart doing wrong? Why should they care about the Mom and Pop organizations they destroy? Yet even more subtly, when a person gets fired from their job because a new machine has been created which can do the work for less money, people tend to just accept that as ‘the way it is,’ not seeing the inherent corrupt inhumanity of such an action.
