Singularity 1 on 1: We Are All Subjected To The Same Natural Law System

Singularity 1 on 1: We Are All Subjected To The Same Natural Law System | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

Joseph is a musician, film-maker and social activist best known as the man behind the Zeitgeist film trilogy and the founder of the Zeitgeist movement.

Eventually his audience turned into a global movement aimed at replacing capitalism with a radically new social system based on a Resource Based Economy (RBE). And so I was very happy to have Peter Joseph on my Singularity 1 on 1 podcast in order to discuss and debate his past work, his vision of our future and his proposed solutions.
