Woody Harrelson ‘Ethos’ – Time to Unslave Humanity

Woody Harrelson ‘Ethos’ – Time to Unslave Humanity from TheOccultruth on Vimeo.

This documentary examines the flaws in our systems, and the mechanisms that work against democracy and the environment. From conflicts of interests in politics and unregulated corporate power, to a news media that serves the interests of powerful elites; ETHOS explores the systems that lead us into over consumption and warfare. Too often the media celebrates aspects of our society that belong in the dark ages, while at the same time ignoring or ridiculing progressive thinking or ideas. Many aspects of the way our systems work almost guarantee our destruction as a society and that’s what this film is about. Fractured societies, poverty, disparity, pollution, warfare. Is there something inherently wrong with the human race? Is that what we should think of ourselves? We have tried to set up forms of law and government that safeguard the public good.

    Why can’t we get it together? Is it because we are inherently flawed? Is it because our dominant socio-political-economic systems enhance our more negative traits? Is it because an entrenched elite find the status quo useful to maintain their hegemony?

    I don’t know for certain, but here’s a kickass Nofx song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQXv7hPMVk4

    Great film. Saw it a couple months ago.

    As for conclusions? Well, to each his own in that department.

    We(as in the majority) are not Flawed …we are collectively just not ready.

    Life progress and intelligence is what Dr. Maslow’s work as all about in his Hierarchy of Needs Theory, but there is a lot more information that is available in his pyramid chart that most people are not aware of. Basically there are seven levels and each level corresponds to a particular age or stage in life. And It takes many years to grow out of each stage.

    Children…… are on the 1st stage.
    Teens…… in the 2nd-3rd stages (plenty going on, thus this group suffers so much). Parents…… in the 4th Stage,
    Professors….. -> 5th,
    Priests……-> 6th
    Finally the Universal Geniuses and Prophets……. 7th stage.

    NOTE: Remember the Great Light (Sun) comes into the world and sheds warmth and energy for all things to grow at around 7 AM plus the 7th day of the week is “Sun”day. Plus I wrote about there being seven senses not 5 nor 6. Many religions also say that 7 is the number of perfection and completion! So Learn all you can about the Mystery of the Number Seven and how it relates to Time and the Future of all things.

    Most of the Suffering can be blamed on our parents…BECAUSE most of your parents fell in love with each other when they were in their teenage years, married shortly there after and had children by the time or before they were even 25 years old. They were basically themselves in either the 2nd or 3rd stage of development. Most kids are the products of 2nd or 3rd level genetics and maturity. Since you/we started at 2nd or 3rd level then this is from where we have to work our way up or out of this screwed up maze called life.

    The higher the stage, the higher the intelligence. Basically older (wiser/more mature men) have less but higher quality sperm and thus produce smarter kids except most of the time they are too old to be good football playing partners to their sons! The rest are mostly (per movie quote) “young, dumb, and full of [come]”. We may get glimpse and little spikes of wisdom but basically we have to work at it and most importantly earn the spiritual wisdom- it is never a walk in the park.

    this has been bread into us, it’ll take a few more years, but once we can evolve beyond religion to REAL philosophy, NOT THE SHIT THAT HAS BEEN REWRITTEN, it’ll truly leave us on a path to realism an utopian.
