    Write ZEITGEIST on your Money

    you probably know about the Zeitgeist movement. If not, you should.
    that's a kind of open-source anti-establishment organization initiated after Zeitgeist: Addendum, the very awesome followup to the controversial internet hit Zeitgeist: the Movie. even if you think it's too radical, even if you don't agree entirely (I don't myself) you have to admit it puts you thinking.

    in a nutshell, it's about the monetary system and how life on earth would be better in every aspect if we just haven't invented it... and also how it's so on top of our minds that we can't ever imagine life without it. as Jonh Carpenter would have put it: Money is our God now...

    so, I was surfing the couch-surfing communities and found this post from a mexican girl. after watching dozen of Ted Talks, finally I found and idea really worth spreading... if you can see the genious of it, please help her and forward it to as many people as you can.
    why not? ^_^

    The study of economics, is the study of value(s) NOT money. If this helps people rethink the role of money (or value) in our current climate (and its often anti-humanness) then this is an idea worth spreading.

    Thanks for this great idea.

    Whatever flaws there are in the Zeitgeist movement's ideas, don't change the fact that our current system is in big trouble. Spread the word. People need to be awoken. TZM is not the only voice of the revolution, but it's a good start (and a much better awakening than Alex Jones!)

    I'm no expert on the monetary system, but I find that the time value of money is what paved the way for our current economic climate and polarity of wealth. It has given the banking industry the upper hand and allowed them to essentially govern our lives. It's because of this system that we can have what we can't afford. Why can't we just pay or trade for values with what we actually have earned? What's the point of bringing hundreds of people, businesses and the government into your life, into you owning a house or buying food?

    Hell, isn't time just an illusion anyways?
