    TZM Wikipedia article

    Greetings everyone,

    I am not certain how many times this issue has been addressed before, but it is important in my opinion.
    For this movement to keep growing it is important to inform as many people as possible about the core message of TZM. I can imagine that people who have not heard of the movement before would look it up on Wikipedia, but they will find only a very general summary of it, and unaddressed criticism by Bloomberg and the Journal of Contemporary Religion.

    Peter Joseph has addressed the criticism in his YouTube videos, and I hereby ask someone more capable than me to post a ''Response to criticism'' segment on the page.
    The overview of TZM on the Wikipedia page could also use a more elaborate description, such as why Peter Joseph believes the current economy is unsustainable and a little more details on the solutions TZM offers.

    For your convenience I posted the direct link to the article below.

    A group would be "more capable" than yourself alone.
    Wiki looks close enough for a hook, if interested and seeking information the core info is not hard to locate. But, define the core info, my perspective of that core info would not be the same, exactly, as yours or someone else. The core info is a moving target, it evolves. `
    The overview of TZM on the Wikipedia page could also use a more elaborate description, such as why Peter Joseph believes the current economy is unsustainable and a little more details on the solutions TZM offers.
    Could start this here on the forum, Research, Review, Revise, Refine, Re-Pete or Re-Treat.
    OK, up for Research and Review>

    Overview

    The Zeitgeist Movement was formed in 2008[1] by Peter Joseph shortly after the late 2008 release of Zeitgeist: Addendum, the second film in the 'Zeitgeist' film series.[2][3][4] In its first year the group described itself as "the activist arm of the Venus Project.[5] In April 2011, the two groups separated over disagreements in goals and objectives.[3]

    The group advocates transformation of the economic system to a global post-scarcity economy or resource-based economy. The proposed economy does not use money[6] and is claimed to be more sustainable than the contemporary socioeconomic structure. VC Reporter's Shane Cohn summarized the movement's charter as: "Our greatest social problems are the direct results of our economic system".[2] The group is critical of market capitalism describing it as structurally corrupt and inefficient in the use of resources. According to The Daily Telegraph, the group dismisses historic religious concepts as misleading and embraces a version of sustainable ecological concepts and scientific administration of society.[7][8][9][10][11][12]

    In January 2014, the group published a book, The Zeitgeist Movement Defined: Realizing A New Train Of Thought, composed of eighteen essays on psychology, economics, and scientific theory written by the 'TZM Lecture Team' and edited by Ben McLeish, Matt Berkowitz, and Peter Joseph.[13]

    It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness.
