Culture in Decline

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.

 

 

 

A More Efficient and Humane Economic System

Peter Joseph interview by The Young Turks. This enlightening back and forth discussion sheds some lights on human development and sustainability topics such as the unproductive nature of the financial system, the unfairness of the free market, the fallacies of capitalism and democracy, the deep inter-mesh of interests between government, business and war, the transition to a resource-based economic system and a short description of this new system. A sure stride into changing the world and human coexistence for better.
