Welcome to The Zeitgeist Movement on Pearltrees! :) Here we've grouped a lot of content from the movement all over the internet into an easy to browse "information universe". Browse at your own pace and become comfortable with your knowledge so that you can spread the word to friends, family and the public.

If you are new to the movement please check out the 'New? Start Here' pearltree and check out 'Zeitgeist Moving Forward' for free online. To chat about anything check out our UK forums: or join The Zeitgeist Movement UK facebook group.

If you have any content to add please leave a comment or email me at with your suggestions.

** Please Note: Unfortunately I will no longer be accepting team up requests on the TZM pearltree. This is because I am tired of people moving things around and deleting information unnecessarily and without conferring with anyone. It is too time consuming to keep a watch over this and put things back when things go wrong. Using the 'everyone welcome' approach does us no favours against intentional saboteurs. This will not affect your ability to browse but you will no longer be able to edit the existing content. This pearltree is shown on our TZM UK website to the public so must be correct at all times. **

After a long summer of renovations, the Institute for Resource-Based Economy (IRBE) is proud to announce the opening of a Tool Library in Toronto! A Tool Library is like a library, but rather than books, it lends tools and machines to design or repair items. This approach lowers the unnecessary consumption of tools, such as a drill that is used a few hours in a year, reduces the consumption of resources to build them, saves on shipping and transport, and spreads the collaborative philosophy and thriftiness. With a small annual subscription (from $50 to $100) members can take advantage of the full range of tools. These subscriptions can also be deducted through free hours of volunteer work. The Tool Library contains many courses that teach a variety of skills, such as how to build a 3D printer, how to assemble a PC, how to install Linux, etc. The Zeitgeist Movement Official Blog The Zeitgeist Movement Official Blog
To start off, as long as the market system is in place and profit is the main motivation to do anything, what I talk about won't happen (social entrepreneurs, fortunately, aren't profit-motivated, but that's a different discussion). However, assuming the infrastructure is in place to meet everyone's essential needs (food, water, shelter, healthcare) and essential luxuries (transportation, energy, education, communication), the population would cease to increase and may even begin to decrease [1] (nations with lower levels of poverty have fertility rates at or below replacement levels, while nations with greater levels of poverty have fertility rates well above replacement rates, strongly suggesting that guaranteeing everyone's basic needs would stop, or reverse, population growth). Furthermore, a report by the United Nations [2] predicts the global population rising to, at most, 10.6 billion by 2050 (a worst-case scenario, essentially).

"Who Are You Protecting?" Freedom of Speech, freedom of assembly, and freedom of the press. These legal rights, guaranteed to United States citizens by the first amendment, are essential to our free democracy. It has allowed for several national revolutions, such as movements for black and female suffrage, to change public opinion and national tradition. Protests have been at the heart of American democracy since its creation, but recent action by the NYPD and other local police departments around the nation have been infringing upon the protestors’ constitutional rights, arresting and brutalizing them with disregard to their grievances. Arrests related to Occupy Wall Street since it began on September 17th have reached 4,400 on November 17th, arresting more protestors in a two month period than the Iraqi government had arrested throughout the country’s uprising in 2009 (Quinnell).
