He does come out with some good quotes.
"Debate is really an infantile disposition - i think discussion,open discussion is what we need to engage in".
This was quoted from an interview and it was an opening statement so it is not quoted out of context.
Anyway debate is discussion and i fail to see why debate is infantile and discussion isnt but i feel that debate is considered infantile by Peter Joseph because it frequently involves opposing opinions and can involve disputes and disagreements.
A discussion does not have to feature opposing viewpoints so is the emphasis on discussion meant to imply that there is no debate or opposing viewpoints within the discussion/debate ?
This is obviously the case since the Zeitgeist organisation is promoting a cause and an ideology which to a large extent is inflexible/rigid much like any other ideology.
Reading between the lines it seems that in the context of the quote by Peter Joseph discussion does not feature opposing viewpoints and disputes etc etc particularly if its open discussion that is supportive of the views promoted by Peter Joseph.Perhaps its opposing viewpoints that are infantile or perhaps it is disputing something that is infantile but i guess it all depends on what is being disputed.
You can dispute a small detail while being in broad agreement over a topic.
How open can the discussion be ?
I guess its infantile disputing Peter Joseph as Peter Joseph is an elevated intellectual.
Not a quote as such but part of the ethos of Zeitgeist is that corruption is inevitable within a monetary system.
That much is very true but it seems to me that its common sense to curtail corruption within a monetary system before it becomes endemic as it is now instead of abolishing the monetary system but perhaps i am missing the point ??
If there is dishonesty or deception or a slant and a hidden agenda or whatever i will notice it.
