Welcome to the official California chapter of The Zeitgeist Movement
The term “Zeitgeist” can be defined as: The intellectual, moral, and cultural climate of an era. The term "movement" implies motion or change. The Zeitgeist Movement is thus a social aim that urges change in the intellectual, moral and cultural climate of the time. Specifically, to values and practices that would better serve the well-being of the whole of humanity.
What TZM advocates, in short, can be phrased as: "The application of the Scientific Method for social concern", which is currently not done since the main modes of social problem-solving are through monetary economics and politics.

Multi-Billionaire Johann Rupert, CEO of luxury giant Richemont, speaking at the Financial Times Business of Luxury Summit in 2015, takes a stance against the growing wealth gap calling it 'unfair' and 'unsustainable' and urges people to read the books "Robots Will Steal Your Job" and "Humans Need Not Apply". He expresses his concern that the next wave of unemployment brought by Artificial intelligence and automation is going to cause social rejection from the majority of the world suffering while so few live well.

Australia Main Event Wrap-up
The lead up was full on. The program was tight. The sound equipment was always going to pose challenges. And the Brisbane chapter of the Zeitgeist Movement mastered all challenges, learned many valuable lessons on the way and put on an event that will be long remembered as fun and chilled-out while also being informative and carrying a powerful message of empowerment.
The day began with the setup of the venue. What a strange feeling to be at the iconic Rumpus Room in the heart of West End at 9.30am! We moved seats and tables, put up fabric across windows to display art and set up the creative corner and workshop tables with art supplies. Blu Tack was in high demand. We set up a clothes drive outside for all those people who were in need. All the while the tech team was busy sorting out cables, leads, stands, speakers and and and… it was a great feeling to make the venue our own!
