Anybody that is familiar with the first Zeitgeist film will know that this documentary went into detail on the different systems that are used to manipulate and control the most powerful civilizations in the world today, while making them believe that they are free and exercising free choice. For the American culture, this focused upon our monetary system- debt-based capitalism, law, and religion. The film went into great detail to expose how these systems are currently upheld behind the public's eye by our current ruling political structure.
This follow-up goes into detail on what has happened up through the Obama presidential election. This is the beginning of the film; after that it goes into detail on various things that we can do as an educated public to fight the entrenched control structure bent on holding back the common citizen's advancement and keeping the ruling elite at the top of the status quo.
I highly recommend it; now that you're aware of the problem, you need to be aware that there are potential solutions that you can actively become engaged in. If you're angry that you're being manipulated, see how you can fight to be free.
