Charles Robinson has interviewed Peter Joseph in a rare documetary.

Peter Joseph, the founder of the Zeitgeist movement, gives in this interview a look seldom given into his own life. How he started studying music and dropping out, partly due to too much accumulation of debt, to having a performance-like show with him playing his percussion instruments (marimba, xylophone), and projectors showing his society critical films on screens beside him, to putting his film out on the web and getting surprising amounts of traffic. And then from there to get a book from Jacque Fresco and Roxanne Meadows, the founders of The Venus Project and a resource based economy, to starting The Zeitgeist Movement, knowing his life would change drastically.

It turns out that Peter Joseph is not his real name, but his first name. He is not revealing his last name, as he wants to protect himself and those around him, understandably enough, as he is comparing what he is doing with Gandi and Marin Luther King. Not directly, though. In any case, what he is doing is in my opinion comparable to those people, as long as he keeps it up. It would also be better if he tries to have a more common appeal in his speeches, and try to bypass all his academic intellectualism. Apart from that, what he does is historical, and hopefully changes in the world will come out of is.
