Peter Joseph interview w/ Abby Martin | Empire Files : Abolishing Capitalism

Original Upload:

“Peter Joseph is the founder of the Zeitgeist Movement, a grassroots, worldwide organization that advocates an alternative economic system based on sustainability, cooperation and human need. His most recent book, ‘The New Human Rights Movement,’ delivers a startling exposé about the violent oppression that defines our economic order, while issuing an urgent call for global activism to unite to replace it. Abby Martin sits down with Joseph to talk about the contradictions and crises of capitalism and what he advocates to save the future of the planet from catastrophe.”


About TZM:
The Zeitgeist Movement is a global sustainability activist group working to bring the world together for the common goal of species sustainability before it is too late. Divisive notions such as nations, governments, races, political parties, religions, creeds or class are non-operational distinctions in the view of The Movement. Rather, we recognize the world as one system and the human species as a singular unit, sharing a common habitat.

  1. anyone else the least bit curious WHY the interview skipped forward just as he mentions the colonial rape of africa at the 18:45 mark?


  3. I find it interesting that this video has fewer views/likes than most other videos of this genre. I think this is because "Abolishing Capitalism" is in the title. That even made me hesitate to click on it. We've been so conditioned in the US to believe in the correctness of capitalism (even though none of us are blind to its negative effects) that we tend to avoid anything that puts it into question. This video is extraordinarily important for everyone to be aware of, however. We need to let go of the programming so we can better educate ourselves.

  4. I wish Peter Joseph would learn MMT because it restores the primary role of government as a banking institution that invests in maintaining a robust public sector. The neoliberal globalists HATE the nation-state because it also has the authority to issue new currency ex nihilo (out of thin air). The only time that the bankers who have seized control of government these past 40 years allow fiscal policy to work is for tax cuts for the wealthy, corporate subsidies, defense spending and bailouts.

    Prof. Stephanie Kelton explains MMT here. Truth is always easier to understand than the Orwellian language of junk economics.

  5. "The neoliberals are prisoners of the Eighteenth Century. They have not advanced since the neo-feudal teachings of Adam Smith (1723-1790). Smith is the godfather of economics and wrote the “bible” of capitalism, An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. Smith was among the first to give much thought about economics.

    In Eighteenth Century Great Britain, half the population lived in poverty. They survived, if they did, with disease, famine, illiteracy, lack of sanitation and in slums. It was normal then. Things had always been that way. They thought the poor, starving and ignorant mass of people would always be among them. They thought their society was according to the laws of nature.

    The neoliberals and their alter-ego, the neocons, do not have any good ideas for the Twenty-first Century. They have caused financial disasters and endless wars, and they tell us not to expect better."

  6. “There is always going to be a natural hierarchy”. Peter, I urge you to reassess your position on hierarchy and definition of hierarchy. Advocating for the eliminating of social stratification has always been a key foundation of the zeitgeist movement. Peace…

  7. If we all get into the habit of Sort By Newest, there could be some conversation on ideas presented. Excellent interview, although Peter hogged the light. hahaha, I'm OK with that. I would say that the oft-used word of sustainability could be replaced by a word only lately coming into vogue and that would be regenerative. One which embodies all areas of endeavour, i.e., culture/society/economy to repair what our collective unconscious has done to Gaia.

  8. If a president doesnt have goldman sachs in their cabinet somewhere, I'm absolutely sure something will "happen" to them.

  9. So Peter Joseph who is one of the great social engineering mines of the last 50 years, although obviously successful, is relegated mainly to writing a few books, having a few successful YouTube movies and is a solid podcast meanwhile possibly the biggest piece of shit
    Of the last quarter century, with the possible exception of Hillary Clinton, is the president of the United States!?? How sad and stupid is our society??

  10. Abolish capitalism in favor of what? Futurism? I think true capitalism died in exchange for Corporism. As far as AMA, FDA, and Big Pharma, there are 100,000 lives per year that no one is being held accountable for. I don't think Capitalism is the culprit. Like many things it has been afflicted by a cancer. Known as greed and it has seemingly metastasized. But this is due more to ignorance and indifference of the population than efficacy of the corporations. TV, Soc Media, Video games, etc. have become powerful distractions. Just seems like they are putting vitamin S (stupid) in the water everywhere.

  11. This is the Rothschild global enslavement — The Latin Americans are paying 500% annually … Thinks of the Rothschild early on Economic Zionism

  12. This global Economic Racism must stopped — and China's Silk Road can be the answer — no more usury and high interest by these bankers to have financed wars and destruction of humanity

  13. Goldman Sachs is the front line for the on going Rothschild 's Global Economic Zionism, who had funded all the earlier Colonialism, the Chinese Opium Holocaust and the enslavement of Africa and Asia

  14. Usury banking must be destroyed and removed ….. this global enslavement system must be overthrown by the open system that Joseph has suggested

  15. Immoral Capitalism has no soul — no conscience and thus – no shame neither . they are incapable to feel bad, to feel guilty and never — compassion !!!!

  16. We became Edward Bernay's team of global economic demons by way of Greed, taken as the false Power — for these immoral capitalist s

  17. He is one of rare humanist economist for our time and to secure the future survival of this planet — he is our man !!!!!!! Thank you, Abby Martin — you and him had put many of us not to lose faith to the good humans around 🙂

  18. We have to defeat the wrongful path set up by Edward Bernay — the destroyer of the American democracy by replacing democracy by over consumption — which had produced greed and the wrongful power by the banks —

  19. because of sudden switching to violent marxism, which is also a oligarchy for the poor. our only time-tested system is the asia's feudal system of 5000 years. corny as it may be, let me still say it;"it's not perfect, but it's the best we have thus far and deserve。“

  20. He is too dogmatic, doesn't tie together certain realities on the short term that will cause massive suffering. And probably morph into revolution that will cycle back to and continue with classicism. Maybe worse that we have with capitalism. The view that capitalism is "completely inhibiting" growth and progress is insane. It isn't that simple. A functional system has to be developed. I agree with points, but the reality is different. This is an academic discussion. It's all anecdotal without developing a purposeful complete functional paradigm shift. And then there is primal human nature. Very complex.

  21. I love being truly surprised by new information that I have not seen or thought about before. From the economy and how truly toxic it is, to potential solutions to said problems in all the various forms they take. Peter and I’m sure many others have great ideas to help push us to be better then we are and help bring us to the next phase of our existence on this planet. Sadly many people are afraid of change and are unwilling to upset their status and sacrifice for the betterment of humanity and its future generations. I do believe that it would really be the first generation to make these changes that would ultimately have hardship whilst making the transformation.

    The simple fact is that although the ideas presented are not perfect, they are better then the alternative. We simply cannot continue down the path we are on without eventually causing our own self destruction. It boggles my mind that people are unwilling to look at the issues with an open mind to try and find real solutions to the actual foundational issues Economy, Over Consumption, Perpetual and extensive waste (Cyclical Consumption). We need people to really think out of the box to move us from the now toxic environment we all share (worldwide) to the next phase of life, which would hopefully be filled with reasonable/responsible abundance for ALL, in whatever form that may take!

    These really are the only ideas that give me hope for humanities future, without true change to the system I feel sorry for the generations to come. Hopefully I am wrong but I think all the evidence points to future hardship like never experienced in modern history. Sorry kids but what can I say, good luck…see you on the other side!

  22. Abby is my dream girl. i love her style,her voice her intelligence and for the love of god she is hot!

  23. Pawns In The Game

    According to William Guy Carr, in Pawns In The Game,42 the initial meeting of these ex officio planners took place in Mayer Amschel Bauer's Goldsmith Shop in Frankfurt in 1773. Bauer, who adopted the name of "Rothschild" or Red Shield, from the red shield which he hung over his door to advertise his business (the red shield today is the official coat of arms of the City of Frankfurt), (See Cover) "was only thirty years of age when he invited twelve other wealthy and influential men to meet him in Frankfurt. His purpose was to convince them that if they agreed to pool their resources they could then finance and control the World Revolutionary Movement and use it as their Manual of Action to win ultimate control of the wealth, natural resources, and manpower of the entire world. This agreement reached, Mayer unfolded his revolutionary plan. The project would be backed by all the power that could be purchased with their pooled resources. By clever manipulation of their combined wealth it would be possible to create such adverse economic conditions that the masses would be reduced to a state bordering on starvation by unemployment… Their paid propagandists would arouse feelings of hatred and revenge against the ruling classes by exposing all real and alleged cases of extravagance, licentious conduct, injustice, oppression, and persecution. They would also invent infamies to bring into disrepute others who might, if left alone, interfere with their overall plans… Rothschild turned to a manuscript and proceeded to read a carefully prepared plan of action.

    1. He argued that LAW was FORCE only in disguise. He reasoned it was logical to conclude 'By the laws of nature right lies in force.'

    2. Political freedom is an idea, not a fact. In order to usurp political power all that was necessary was to preach 'Liberalism' so that the electorate, for the sake of an idea, would yield some of their power and prerogatives which the plotters could then gather into their own hands.

    3. The speaker asserted that the Power of Gold had usurped the power of Liberal rulers…. He pointed out that it was immaterial to the success of his plan whether the established governments were destroyed by external or internal foes because the victor had to of necessity ask the aid of 'Capital' which 'Is entirely in our hands'.

    4. He argued that the use of any and all means to reach their final goal was justified on the grounds that the ruler who governed by the moral code was not a skilled politician because he left himself vulnerable and in an unstable position.

    5. He asserted that 'Our right lies in force. The word RIGHT is an abstract thought and proves nothing. I find a new RIGHT… to attack by the Right of the Strong, to reconstruct all existing institutions, and to become the sovereign Lord of all those who left to us the Rights to their powers by laying them down to us in their liberalism.

    6. The power of our resources must remain invisible until the very moment when it has gained such strength that no cunning or force can undermine it. He went on to outline twenty-five points.

    Number 8 dealt with the use of alcoholic liquors, drugs, moral corruption, and all vice to systematically corrupt youth of all nations.

    9. They had the right to seize property by any means, and without hesitation, if by doing so they secured submission and sovereignty.

    10. We were the first to put the slogans Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity into the mouths of the masses, which set up a new aristocracy. The qualification for this aristocracy is WEALTH which is dependent on us.

    11. Wars should be directed so that the nations engaged on both sides should be further in our debt.

    12. Candidates for public office should be servile and obedient to our commands, so that they may readily be used.

    13. Propaganda–their combined wealth would control all outlets of public information.

    14. Panics and financial depressions would ultimately result in World Government, a new order of one world government."
