For the record, this is my first Forum topic, and I'm still very new to this, so apologies if these kinds of topics are out-of-place on this Forum.
Yet, I made the choice to post this anyways as sort of an introduction and a first step to 'joining' TZM, by the off-chance that these kinds of topics are absolutely fine, although the Forum rules didn't indicate that the way I saw it.
I first learned about The Zeitgeist Movement when my older brother showed me the documentary movies, and I was absolutely shocked! It was like the world I've perceived and assumed throughout my life was turned upside-down in a few hours, and TZM's goal of a NLRBE was something I became extremely interested in. So much so that I ordered the book "The Zeitgeist Movement Defined: Realizing a New Train of Thought" from Amazon. I wanted to learn as much about this as I could, for potential future preparations and for spreading the ideas around, and I'm quite satisfied with having recently completed reading the book.
I just- I can't believe that so few people even know or believe the state our society is in, and how difficult it really doesn't need to be to make way for incredible changes, changes the world desperately needs! I want to help spread the word around about TZM's amazing potential, because I truly believe that this is the single biggest problem in the entire world!
So, since this is my first topic and I'm not really sure how things work here yet, I thought I'd include some questions here as well, as posting those as separate topics might be something I'll later find to be against Forum guidelines.
First off, how am I to properly convey the ideas of TZM to best convince others and to deal with objections? Sure, I've read the full book so I have a general idea, but that's going to be veeeery looong. I need to know the essentials of convincing others without writing massive Walls of Text that simply bore the readers and might not even engage them to start reading it at all.
Second, roughly how many are currently estimated to support, or at least know most of TZM's details? Where do we stand now? Where are we thought to be headed? This is a kind of subtle way of asking pretty much "When could the transition be?" as that's something I have great interest in, though I can't deny that it's probably mostly for selfish reasons. I'm not one to take a bullet for someone else, but I do care about others, and I do want the world to be better, for the sake of the world as well.
Third, well, I kind of indicated I'd want answers to this already, but I'll directly ask about it just in case. Is this, or is it not, the kind of topics allowed on this Forum? Are there no "Help" or "Off-Topic" Forum sections that this would be more appropriate for, or is it simply not how this Forum operates? I'd kindly ask for some answers to this before having the topic deleted without any explanation.
Well, that's all. Looking forward to be a part of TZM!
