"Peter Joseph is the founder of the Zeitgeist Movement, a grassroots, worldwide organization that advocates an alternative economic system based on sustainability, cooperation and human need. His most recent book, ‘The New Human Rights Movement, ’ delivers a startling exposé about the violent oppression that defines our economic order, while issuing an urgent call for global activism to unite to replace it. Abby Martin sits down with Joseph to talk about the contradictions and crises of capitalism and what he advocates to save the future of the planet from catastrophe."

1:31:12 Money, happiness and eternal life - Greed (director's cut) | DW Documentary

Money, happiness and eternal life - Greed (director's cut) | DW Documentary

Can money and power ever make us happy? How much is enough? Our constant desire for more is part of our human nature.

Some call it a useful dowry of evolution, others a fault in the human genetic make-up: The old mortal sin Greed seems to be more ubiquitous than ever. Why can't people ever get enough, where is this self-indulgence leading — and are there any ways out of this vicious circle of gratification?

"People like to have a lot of stuff because it makes them the feeling of living forever, " says American social psychologist Sheldon Solomon, who believes today's materialism and consumerism will have disastrous consequences.

Anyone who fails to satisfy his or her desires in this age of the Ego is deemed a loser. But with more than 7 billion people on the Earth, the ramifications of this excessive consumption of resources are already clear. Isn’t the deplorable state of our planet proof enough that "The Greed Program, " which has made us crave possessions, status and power, is coming to an end? Or is the frenzied search for more and more still an indispensable part of our nature? We set off to look for the essence of greed. And we tell the stories of people who — whether as perpetrators or victims or even just as willing consumers — have become accomplices in a sea change in values.

23:47 Peter Joseph on Stefan Molyneux: "The Art of Nonsense" | Pathology or Con-Artistry?

Peter Joseph on Stefan Molyneux: "The Art of Nonsense" | Pathology or Con-Artistry?

From Peter: "I'm sad to say I have been far too polite towards this highly distorted man who hides behind deliberate, farce logical reductions and a general manipulation of language and arguments. His personal attacks on myself and TZM are carefully cloaked in an armor of sheer nonsense and the amazing thing is — many gullible people believe him.

Everyone asked me after the fact why I engaged this guy. I did because I like to believe we all should share a conversation on such subjects and I'm not an elitist. The problem is that some people are not honest and are not interested in discussion. They simply want to "win".

(And for those that know me, know it takes a lot to bother me as much as this guy does. Anger is not my typical path but life pressures of such create these patterns. I'm human.)

As far as Stefan M., I have to consider: is he a pathological case, not understanding what he is doing? Or is he a deliberate misleader... a con-artist — working consciously to fabricate the conclusions he seems to so desperately need? I offer a general warning to all out there who listen to this guy: Please work to think critically. This guy is a salesman of bullshit and nothing more and it horrifies me how many seem to take him seriously.

I apologize for my tone in this video essay, but please understand that I think it is warranted.
