The other day I watched the movie “Zeitgeist” – a 2-hour movie which argues that Christianity is based on an elaborate lie, that the world is increasingly controlled by a few wealthy people, and that 9/11 was a complete hoax designed to take away any last remaining liberties.
Now… It’s not that I disagree with all the facts presented in the film. I’ve learned similar ideas from other sources. In the last two months, I have watched two similar films online which have basically the same format and tout the same “truths.” But I’m left with a couple huge questions:
If the makers of these films are exposing an elaborate hoax perpetrated by the most powerful people in the world, who control the world’s media, and this is a hoax that the whole world’s media has bought into and have helped promote, then how did they manage to get this thing produced and mass-distributed? How come it has not been quashed? How did it manage to win awards in Hollywood?
And secondly, the whole idea is that our enemies are our governments, controlled by a few elite bankers, and their agenda is to promote fear and panic among the people, therefore convincing the people to give over their power to the elite. So then, why do the makers of these types of films also try to promote fear and panic among their viewers – painting a world where we are all enslaved and left to starve? Why create the very thing that they claim to be against?
First, if you have not done so already, watch the movie: http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com
Then, see if you can answer my questions.
