Publisher's Summary

Society is broken. We can design our way to a better one.

In our interconnected world, self-interest and social interest are rapidly becoming indistinguishable. If current negative trajectories remain, including growing climate destabilization, biodiversity loss, and economic inequality, an impending future of ecological collapse and societal destabilization will make "personal success" virtually meaningless. Yet our broken social system incentivizes behavior that will only make our problems worse. If true human rights progress is to be achieved today, it is time we dig deeper - rethinking the very foundation of our social system.

In this engaging, important work, Peter Joseph, founder of the world's largest grassroots social movement - the Zeitgeist Movement - draws from economics, history, philosophy, and modern public-health research to present a bold case for rethinking activism in the 21st century.

Arguing against the long-standing narrative of universal scarcity and other pervasive myths that defend the current state of affairs, The New Human Rights Movement illuminates the structural causes of poverty, social oppression, and the ongoing degradation of public health, and it ultimately presents the case for an updated economic approach. Joseph explores the potential of this grand shift and how we can design our way to a world where the human family has become truly sustainable.

The New Human Rights Movement reveals the critical importance of a unified activism working to overcome the inherent injustice of our system. This book warns against what is in store if we continue to ignore the flaws of our socioeconomic approach, while also revealing the bright and expansive future possible if we succeed. Will you join the movement?

    "Peter has got a good brain"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The way Peter presents his logic is brilliant. It really makes sense to me. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to understand our current societal and economic woes. There is not really much else I can say, Peter says it much better, so have a listen.

    "A Great Introduction to the new trains of thought"

    For those who think that the world is screwed or are struggling to see how civilisation can survive the next 30 years let alone 100 yrs, this is a book for you. It recognises the root causes of many of the western world's woes and explains the geisty ideals of a civilisation that has sustainability at the core and a far better potential future for us, if we work towards it.

    If you want it in a different form check out the movie Zeitgeist Moving Forward, also by Peter Joseph, it's available for free online.

    "Concise and Valid"

    I bought the audio version of this book. Peter's voice makes it easy to process the complex problems our world faces today and provides valid and concise arguments and solutions.

    "Mind opening!"

    Just when you think you're starting to open the door to this world someone comes along and takes out the whole bloody wall. Why does it need to be so f@#king difficult folks? Thanks Peter, shining a light for those awake and willing to focus on what's really going on, on this unfortunate planet.

    "Fantastic discourse on connected human issues"

    Eloquently illustrates seemingly unrelated problems connected thru root cause. Descriptive narration of interconnected paths to solutions currently underway.
