Zeitgeist pt 3

I watched the 3rd video and I have to unfortunately say that I am disappointed. For the most part, it felt like a rehashing of what was already said.  Sure, they talked about things like childhood development; but that was more of a PSA than a call to action.  And when you are telling people the time is now and to get to it; it doesn't really help to tell them step 1 is to catalog all of earth's resources.  That's almost like saying "every individual can help - first, fly to Mars, then...."  If you want people to stand up and start working towards the goal, you have to give them something they believe they personally can do to make a difference.  I don't know about you, but I don't think I personally have the resources or knowledge to catalog all of earths natural resources quicker than they change.  And one last pet peeve before I embed the video for you... Mainframe in the center of the city?  Really?  That is an extremely outdated idea that will also give the city a single point of failure and a single point of attack for the status quo.  Instead of a giant central mainframe, why not let the entire system form a p2p mesh so there is no single point of failure?

Anyways, the video...
