Religion, politics, wealth and war. Is there a connection?

Having spent 5 weeks in the USA last summer, I’m well aware of the popularity of the conspiracy theory surrounding the 9/11 tragedy. Oh yea, I hear you say, not more stuff and nonsense. But if you think you’ve heard enough from conspiracy theorists since the death of Princess Diana, I ask you to put your scepticism aside temporarily and check this out.
It’s a freely downloadable 2 hour movie that, if it doesn’t shake you to the core, will at least make you question what you perceive of as reality. It’s about the apparent connection between politics, religion and wealth and it doesn’t hold back any punches. In parts, it’s almost too upsetting to watch and is shocking if true.

It’s a remastered version of "Zeitgeist" and will be shown at the Artists’ Film Festival in London on December 7th. It has been produced by Peter Joseph, who encourages scepticism when he states:

“…. It is my hope that people will not take what is said in the film as the truth, but find out for themselves, for truth is not told, it is realised.”

To this end, he has included an interactive transcript so that viewers can scroll through the script of the entire film, checking his reference sources and obtaining more information. If you’ve time, it’s also worth checking out the other pages on the site.

It’s true, he may be another Dan Brown but this guy certainly doesn’t seem to be in it for the money. I did though recognise a line near the end that reminded me of something Donnie Darko said.

Why not watch it and see what you think.
