The Zeitgeist movement is like reading/listening to teenage Anarchists, combined with a History channel special on "secrets of the pyramids" the only difference being that Anarchists at least have some rational thought, some kind of intellectual history, whereas the special on The Secrets of The Pyramids is more entertaining...at least a little bit
So basically, I think it's patent, 100% nonsense with some unsettling tones under the conspiracy theory and NWO stuff, which comes from far-right thought, and a huge amount of the quasi-religious stuff sounds about like many of the semi-apocalyptic cults that have popped up throughout recent history.
Hey, you asked
"Just as a lotus does not grow out of a well-levelled soil but from the mire, in the same way the awakening mind
is not born in the hearts of disciples in whom the moisture of attachment has dried up. It grows instead in the hearts of ordinary sentient beings who possess in full the fetters of bondage." -Se Chilbu Choki Gyaltsen
