People ask me why I would disregard and ignore members of The Zeitgeist Movement and/or The Venus Project. I think the better question is, why did I ever bother in the first place?
TZM and TVP are not relevant, nor were they ever. They might of been relevant for 5 minutes in their whole existence when Zeitgeist: Addendum was released and there was an initial interest but it soon tapered off. Here I will prove, once and for all, that no one gives a rat’s ass about TZM, TVP or their religious stance on the Resource Based Economy.
Here is the Google Trend data for search results relating to TZM/TVP. You can see it’s always been on a steady decline with a bump and correction around the release of Zeitgeist: Moving Forward (the third and final installment of the film series)
Here I took the highest yielding results and compared them to the main proponents (Fresco and Merola) to see if the results would be any higher. They were not so we’ll just ignore those and use ‘Venus Project’ and ‘Zeitgeist Movement’ as our baseline.
Let’s compare that to ‘libertarian’ which is a relatively obscure/fringe political position.
How does a fringe crank like Alex Jones compare to TZM/TVP? Let’s just say this dude is Michael Jackson in the 80’s by comparison.
When was the last time anyone cared about Tom Green? When 4Chan was raiding his internet show no one watched? The dude is a total rock star in comparison.
What about a website that’s synonymous with woo, quackery, and pseudoscience?
I couldn’t help but laugh at the fact that more people care about a ‘comedian’ who hasn’t have a viable career in over 20 years and was responsible for one of the worst films of all time: BioDome.
So yea, next time A Zeitard tells me TZM is relevant because they were on The Young Turks (as if anyone gives a fuck,) just tell them more people today care about Tom Green and Pauly Shore. So I’ll make a deal with you Zeitgeisters. The day people care more about you than Pauly Shore is the day I’ll give you the time of day.
