Some Thursday-night conspiracy theory…

October 29, 2009

F went out with the guys tonight, so I settled in to do all the Shawn-time things I don’t usually get to do. I thinned out my bookshelf to the tune of 25-30 tomes…I baked a new kind of bread (with currants and cardamom, woot!)…and then I settled in to clear out my bloated email inbox. I found some links a friend had sent me several months ago, to a couple of films to watch online.

So I’ve just finished watching two, and I don’t exactly know if I should punch something, cry, or go hide in the dark of the laundry room. Of course I recognize, as a critically thinking person, that these films present a single point of view and that the “reality”–whatever that means–is sure to be more balanced. But it still makes me feel a little sick.

Got a few hours to kill? Here are both for your own viewing pleasure (con subtítulos en español):

Zeitgeist: (1:56)

Documentary style film about historical and modern conspiracies, including the origins of Christianity, the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and the banking system. I actually learned quite a bit in this film. The Amero? Wha…?
