30 Days of Zeitgeist - Day 12

The Greek chapter of the Zeitgeist Movement has issued a press release regarding the events of February 12th in Greece. The people's resentment, disgust and outrage of the imminent imposition of austerity measures to satisfy the international banker's whims regarding the amount of debt the country carries is yet another instance of society's immune system rejecting the disease of capitalism and the cancerous nature of the monetary system in general. In their statement, they encourage people to start questioning the current zeitgeist.

Should we start questioning the dominant values of blind individualism, over-consumption and unfailing tendency for wealth consolidation which constitute the guidance of our life, and consider to what extent are they truly sustainable in relation to our long-term survival on the planet?
