One of the great wisdoms of all faiths and traditions is Do not judge. The consequence of judging others is the frustration that equals hell. I'm stunned by the traffic to, the excitement generated by, the (relatively unchallenged) interest in, and the amount of time, energy, and willingness to believe in, to glory in, to contemplate the spiritual pandemic of the Glass Half-Empty (Esoteric Agenda, Zeitgeist, etc.)
Let's assume, just for the sake of simplicity, that the Chicken-Little Collective Self-Image is 100% true. Again, I challenge you, as I've challenged myself, to ask Now what?
Any society that has lost a positive image of its future will perish… You already know where we've been. But are you ready for where we are going?
What is the meaning of all our new power that is good? What is the image of humanity's future that we want to move toward, where we want to go?
Barbara Marx Hubbard is one of my greatest living personal heroes. She's spent a lifetime asking What now? What next? and coming up with some life-changing answers.

The cost of the online viewing is $4.95 -- I don't make a penny for promoting it. But the negative navel-gazing of conspiracy films exhausts me; this is the best alternative, the best cure, the best shift in perspective I can recommend.
In the new perspective of films like What the [bleep]?, The Secret, The Moses Code, some lesser-known Conscious Evolutionary films which are available for free and/or low-cost online viewing include:
