The Four Horsemen is an independent feature documentary which lifts the lid on how the world really works.
As we will never return to ‘business as usual’ 23 international thinkers, government advisors and Wall Street money-men break their silence and explain how to establish a moral and just society.
The Four Horsemen is free from mainstream media propaganda — the film doesn’t bash bankers, criticise politicians or get involved in conspiracy theories. It ignites the debate about how to usher a new economic paradigm into the world which would dramatically improve the quality of life for billions.
“It’s Inside Job with bells on, and a frequently compelling thesis thanks to Ashcroft’s crack team of talking heads — economists, whistleblowers and Noam Chomsky, all talking with candour and clarity.” – Total Film
“Four Horsemen is a breathtakingly composed jeremiad against the folly of Neo-classical economics and the threats it represents to all we should hold dear.”
– Harold Crooks, The Corporation (Co-Director) Surviving Progress (Co-Director/Co-Writer)
The March Against Corruption an international campaign to raise awareness about the corrupting influence of money and special interests in governance and public policy making; to provide a forum for people, to organize and speak out against corruption; and to educate the public about the consequences of corruption.
Progressively speaking, this is what reaching critical mass look like.
The Road to World War 3 analyses the hidden agenda behind the last wars, especially on the issue of the petrodollar, one of the oldest political and economical control-mechanisms of the United States. Basically, ever since the dollar ceased to be backed by gold (in the greatest theft to the population of the United Stated in record) it has been backed by the power of oil, since every barrel in the world must be sold and bought on the US dollar currency. To lose this leash in the world’s economy would bring the dollar down to its knees and the dollar bills back to what they are truly worth: zero.
A very concise, straight-to-the-point documentary that answers a lot of questions.
The European Citizens’ Initiative for an Unconditional Basic Income is based on the Article 25. of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:
(1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.
Unconditional Basic Income aims to provide a safety-net to every citizen, unconditionally, by diminishing wealth inequalities (through financial and high-end taxation) and taxing luxury goods as well as polluting products and self-financing by cutting a long list of obsolete social services. It not only provides a solid cornerstone for the economy as it allows people to have more time to actually enjoy their lives, spend more time with their families and immerse themselves in the world of arts.
When it reaches worldwide scope, such a simple concept might be the first step to the society we all envision and hope for. Even those who don’t know it yet.
“The Scarecrow” is a touching short-film that addresses the truth behind labels like “100% Natural” or “Farm-fresh” products, which are sometimes nothing more than processed foods, poisoned with synthetic growth hormones, non-therapeutic antibiotics, toxic pesticides or a product of animal confinement. It envisions to raise awareness and embrace the quest for wholesome, sustainable food. Remember: If it needs to be advertised, it probably isn’t that healthy.
With Culture in Decline – Episode 6, Peter Joseph concludes the first (and only?) season of this changing-the-paradigm-type of social criticism and presses on to the ongoing InterReflections project. Being what it is – an appendix to the Zeitgeist Trilogy – Culture in Decline does not possess the strength or the depth of the Zeitgeist documentaries, but does make a point of bringing to the spotlight what is wrong with modern society, sometimes going as far as pointing the finger at the viewer, for what are we if not both victims and agents of a culture in decline?
But that’s the thing with Culture in Decline series, it’s not meant to be pretty or agreeable, it’s meant to be exactly what it is: an ultimatum to the world. If we do not address our planet’s resources rationally and responsible, in half a century pollution, depletion and surely tragedy will ensue. Episode 6, “A Tale of Two Worlds”, speculates on exactly this issue, this pending decision we must take as a race, in one hand where we are heading and, in the other, what we could accomplish.
Anyway, for what it’s worth: Thanks Peter, your work is an inspiration and, undoubtedly, a catalyzer for change all around the world.
