SACRED ECONOMICS > Charles Eisenstein

"Sacred Economics" with Charles Eisenstein

The film, "Sacred Economics" traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system necessitates an endless growth that has destroyed community and contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity. Today, these trends have reached their extreme - but in the wake of the recent financial collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.

Statement by the Director, Ian MacKenzie:

"After reading Charles Eisenstein's book Sacred Economics, which speaks eloquently about the return of the 'gift economy', I felt compelled to gift back. The best way I knew how was to use my filmmaking skills to share Charles' work, and spread it to communities around the globe.  His vision of "the more beautiful world our hearts tell us is possible" is the salve that so many of us need at this time, in the age of great transition. My hope is this film catalyzes those who work with passion and dedication to live this world right now."

RAP NEWS X > #Occupy2012 (feat. Noam Chomsky & Anonymous)

| | | | | |
 

RAP NEWS episode 10: The year we've all been waiting for - 2012AD (or 13.0.0.0.0, if you ask a Mayan) - is finally here. What will happen? Will we see the poles shift or a paradigm shift? Will a rogue Sumerian planet smash into our solar system, plunging us into serfdom under the iron fist of a race of gold-hungry aliens? Or are the aliens already here? Or are all these merely humanity's collective projections of itself as it careens towards an ever-accelerating super-connected cyber-reality - whatever that means... One thing's sure, if 2011 was a prelude of things to come, 2012 is going to be one hell of a year. Now that it has arrived, are we ready? Join your host Robert Foster and his guests, Terrence Moonseed and General Baxter, as they conduct an in-depth rap analysis into the future, and humanity's place in it. Happy New YERA!

The Parable of The Rock

| | |

 

THERE WAS ONCE AN ENORMOUS ROCK. It was smooth and round, and the only thing of its kind. As such, the local people loved and adored it. Streams of people came to visit it. Eventually they built homes around it, so that they could be close to it. Gradually a town formed around it. Everybody had the rock in common.

   The rock was so perfect and symmetrical that people said it could not possibly be natural. On the other hand, however, just as many people thought that it could not possibly be man-made for the same reasons.

Inbetween nature and industry, we stand, we move, we dance, we ride.

Nothing is impossible.

Gravity is merely a myth.

RAP NEWS 9 - The Economy w. Ron Paul & Peter Joseph

|
RAP NEWS episode 9. 2011 hits harder than a pre-apocalyptic hangover as "the economy" threatens to annihilate our stock-piles of imaginary, inflated wealth, spawning a battle of epic proportions as insurgent grassroots forces move in to #OccupywallStreet and coalitions of indignados hold their ground in Athens, Madrid and Tel Aviv; facing up to the riotgear, batons and tazers that stand between them and a more equal redistribution of the proverbial pie. ...But enough action and excitement! It's time for some heroic armchair philosophy: Join your affable host, Robert Foster as he attempts to shine some light on this mysterious creature, "the economy". Is this the failure of capitalism that we are witnessing, or its triumph? Is it the end of the end of history, or yet another crazy chapter in the whimsical journey of the human experiment?
