In Memory of Michael C. Ruppert – Full Interview – ” #Zeitgeist : Moving Forward” by #PeterJoseph ( #MichaelCRuppert

From Peter Joseph, April 16th 2014:

In early 2010, I interviewed Michael C. Ruppert for a film.
This is the full interview with only minor editing.

Given his tragic death, I would like to say that Michael was an extremely rare person – far beyond what most see. While he certainly had no shortage of detractors and attackers, he also had courage unprecedented – fearless – and was an inspiration to millions, including myself.

Mike ruthlessly put forward and defended what he had concluded without intimidation or fear of reprisal. In the climate of tension common to the activist community, Mike was a pioneer…and sadly people with this kind of commitment and sensitivity often find tragic ends.

As a personal friend, this was a massive loss.

This interview, as with many he did, again shows his understanding of the world along with his relentless plea for humanity to change course.

While I, as a sustainability activist, do not necessarily agree with some of the pending consequences he had deemed inevitable, his logic is rock solid regarding his diagnosis of the problems at hand. The dark future he describes as possible, while certainly preventable in my mind, is far from irrational or extreme in the broad view.

Think for yourself… if we all agreed, there would be no progress.

His life’s work to bring justice, truth, sanity and progress to the world will live on in all of us who dare to care about the present mess we try to defend as “civilization”.

Four Horsemen – Feature Documentary – Official Version

FOUR HORSEMEN is an award winning independent feature documentary which lifts the lid on how the world really works.

As we will never return to ‘business as usual’ 23 international thinkers, government advisors and Wall Street money-men break their silence and explain how to establish a moral and just society.

FOUR HORSEMEN is free from mainstream media propaganda — the film doesn’t bash bankers, criticise politicians or get involved in conspiracy theories. It ignites the debate about how to usher a new economic paradigm into the world which would dramatically improve the quality of life for billions.

“It’s Inside Job with bells on, and a frequently compelling thesis thanks to Ashcroft’s crack team of talking heads — economists, whistleblowers and Noam Chomsky, all talking with candour and clarity.” – Total Film

“Four Horsemen is a breathtakingly composed jeremiad against the folly of Neo-classical economics and the threats it represents to all we should hold dear.”
– Harold Crooks, The Corporation (Co-Director) Surviving Progress (Co-Director/Co-Writer)
