One perspective is that the more energy and trust we direct at a system that doesn’t deserve our energy and trust, the more lost opportunities accumulate (what could have been). People will counter this broken system, but I don’t think it’s going to be led by those within the political structure/re-structuring, or even be overtly deliberate.
Today, Right Now, Please Support Peter Joseph (Zeitgeist) New Film — Interreflections — Watch the Trailer
Peter Joseph, Zeitgeist Movement Founder, has just agreed to be our inspirational speaker at Open Source Everything for the 21st Century in NYC in early December 2015.
We are moved and appreciative. He is raising money to finish the first of the Interreflections Trilogy movies and although he has achieved his goal of $50,000 we strongly urge all who care about open source everything — and a new model of Open Collaborativsm — to go here, now, and donate what they can. Thank you, Peter Joseph.

EXTRACT: Here are some of the facts: Facebook is still mostly female and remains the top network. Twitter leans heavier on the male demographic, while YouTube reaches more adults in 18-34 demographic than cable TV.
