4.SUGGESTED TRANSITION STEPS
The Zeitgeist Movement is all about educating the masses regarding the shortcomings of the present system and proposing a better alternative but one major aspect of it is to actually help the world transition to the new socioeconomic paradigm known as the Natural Law / Resource Based Economy. However, since we still live in a monetary system where voluntary efforts might fall way short for achieving the latter and also because the movement strictly prohibits the collection and usage of any kind of funds for activism purposes, TZM has been unable to implement any major transition plans because of which it has been facing criticism regarding the ‘action’ towards an NLRBE. Hence, as explained in the subheading ‘A Means, Not an End’ of the article ‘How TZM Works’, we would like to reiterate the fact that with the current stand of the movement with regards to funding, there is a huge possibility that any significant transition blueprints might not come to fruition if tried to work upon from within TZM as projects of the same.
However, what is still possible is for every individual associated with TZM to imbibe the philosophies, knowledge and skills required to build an NLRBE and then to implement it at their own level (in their own respective capacities) to build a better world in order to lead by example. Therefore, we have created a list of relevant projects and organizations (both local and/or global) and resources below that you could learn from, contribute to and get inspired by to take action in the desired direction.
NOTE: TZM is not associated with any of the projects or organizations listed below. They are mentioned here just because they might partially help propagate TZM’s train of thought independently and because of the relevance of their aims to that of the movement’s.
