A very good movie that every american should watch immediately. It's about everything that is wrong with america and religion and tells how corrupt the government is and tells you there lies and there plans for the upcoming future. And you can watch it at youtube or google videos.
i just watched zeitgeist on youtube, and i'm speechless. holy shit is all i can say.

Fancy german term frequently missused by people to make themeselves sound smarter than they are...
Opinions, that deviate from the ruling zeitgeist, always aggravate the crowd. - Germaine de StaΓ«l

The product of paper and printed ink, that we commonly call the book, is one of the great visible mediators between spirit and time, and, reflecting zeitgeist, lasts as long as ore and stone. - Johann Georg Hamann

A movie loved by conspirators, who claims 9/11 was an inside job, the moonlanding never happened, Elvis lives and USA are the root of all evil.

Widely panned by critics, and laughed at by all serious scientist or expert, this movie is still popular, due to the fact than people are suckers for factually inaccuracy, presented as truth.
Friend: Jesus never existed, and USA are evil! Zeitgeist: The Movie proves it!

Me: really believe that? Well, then this is for your own good. *SMACK!*
