|Thats awesome DF, was it the second movie or the first? I really thought the second one was way more cool then the first. Well i guess thats one thing i would have to disagree with you on, i do pretty well for myself and I would give it all away for a chance at moving the human race ahead. A resource based economy could be possible, it would be extremly hard to get it off the ground. Money should not own people, and it does no one can deny that. With this recession coming up here, going to be supposedly, one of the biggest in history, at a time when we are the most technologically adavanced we've ever been. We have the technology for everyone on this planet to eat, have a home and live to be 100. Money and greed are the only reasons its not.|
I dont know the second movie just really pisses you off as well as opens your eyes to what could be. We create laws because we can't sovle our problems. I believe the first film is very much conspiracy theories, the only thing i found intresting was the first half. The second movie is all about money and the monetary system. If you watched the first one, or well 3/4. Forget the last quater( even though the ending was pretty cool) Watch the second one. Thats the movie i wanted your opinion on. Its not anything to do with conspiracy crap. It actually highlights a really out there project called the venus project. Their goal being to drastically change our lives through technology. Insane stuff. WATCH IT!!!!!!

|OK Dime, I tried to watch the film over the weekend. I managed to get through a large portion of it. Although it was certainly interesting, I find this kind of film to be incredibly tedious. I liken it to the tripe that loser Michael Moore puts out, although Zeigeist was measurably more interesting and far better done. I do not mean to insinuate that this is a Moore film, quite the contrary, it is a very good movie. I mean the whole "conspiracy theory" thing is just too much for my feeble mind to digest.
The film seems to imply that religion, governments and banking have all conspired against the common man. While I am no fan of religion, I just cannot follow this kind of thinking. I am a capitalist at heart, I suppose. I am far more interested in making money and creating wealth than I am in what happens to "Joe Public". I suppose that is a terrible thing to say but, with me, what you see is what you get. I am what I am, as "Popeye" might say.
I do appreciate that you "turned me on" to the movie. I hope I have not disappointed you with my thoughts. I am just not all that liberal, nor am I what one might consider a "free thinker". I am just a man. Part of the system. In fact, I happen to support that system. It has helped me to do well in life and provide. That others have surely suffered by that very same system is regrettable but I guess it is just life. Some get, some do not. Some have, some have not. That's how it goes.
