Future Thinkers Sessions for the Zeitgeist Movement Australia

SCIENCE – TECHNOLOGY – NATURE - SUSTAINABILITY

An open platform to meet and chat with other 'self-proclaimed' controversial deep thinkers, scientists and philosophers... basically anyone who likes to think about anything.

This month, we're fortunate enough to have Dr Richard Mochelle presenting PRIOCRACY, a future cosmopolitan political economy. Richard is an expert in architecture, environmental design education, futures education, studies in environmental, economic ethics and political ethics. Priocracy has many similarities to the concept of an NLRBE (Natural-Law Resource Based Economy, as promoted by TZM) and delves into some really important questions, and areas that need addressing to advance humanity forward.

Can family values extend to embrace, civilise and integrate the entire global family? Could this high-minded idea be activated one day to produce an economic revolution? What is the rationale for trade free and tax free economic ethic? What if those extolling this ethic committed in all integrity to enact it? What would be its operating principles and its attractions? What role might the internet play? Would a Priocracy prove more economic in the face of scarcity than the competitive market?

Future Thinkers is a realistic, fun and empowering meet-up about applying science to social concern. Don't worry, we don't put you on the spot... there's no expectation to explain your position, and no expectation of any qualification. It's not in our 'cynical yet idealistic, atheist, technocratic anarchistic activist' nature. ;) :P

We provide...

• Short presentations on human behaviour, society, new crazy technologies and cool ideas for hacking life!!

• Study groups and panel discussions on philosophical questions like "How do we engage people resistant to logic and reason?" or "Does wealth provide happiness?"

• Awesome socially-aware music, podcasts and radio shows

• Insightful and hilarious pointed videos for social concern

Please feel free to sit at the back and hide in the corner, or announce your opinion of some particular policy, or share your understanding of a scientific discovery or discuss your general thoughts on a particular topic. :D ;) We'd love that. We look forward to meeting you!
