It has been a great run! This site has remained online in service to TZM's volunteer efforts since 2008. I was trying for the 10 year mark and nearly got there. Due to personal life needs this site (and its sister site zmcachapters.org) will be going off line in October. With all the new security requirements (which are expensive to implement) and the full-time webmastering job for both sites it's more than I can keep up with.
I'm honored by everyone who contributed to these pages, the legacy of your work and countless of thousands of hours of volunteer effort by hundreds of TZM activists throughout California and the global TZM community. Please feel free to download anything you want from these pages. Most of it is still completely relevant in the context of a system problem and the need to transition from the profit/consumption/waste model (which we still have) to an economic system based on the earth, natural systems, efficiency and equity for all. That need is still in front of all of us.
ETA for going offline will be early October 2017. If you are a Firefox user, the add-on Scrapbook is an easy way to archive any site directly to your computer for offline browsing.
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.

Focusing on transitioning society to into a condition of post-scarcity, emphasizing social and environmental justice, the topics of discussion will include the role of technology, the latest understandings in public health science, critical factors of future sustainability, transition steps such as universal basic income, and the structural incapacity of market capitalism to address these pressing concerns, holding progress back.
