Adam comes off as very much refined and I will probably watch him more.
About a year ago, I watched the first half hour of Zeitgeist, solely because of its promotion on this website. I had long ago read and watched other material that that similarly pointed out flawed beliefs in our society. I felt that it was a rambling criticism without any proposed solutions.
Watching this interview, I now see that Peter Joseph is a statist. Through his criticism of voluntaryism and free market capitalism, he acknowledges that some group must be annointed to control the unannointed. Peter and other statists complain about the system we have and offer up an alternative system of state control made up of perfectly moral people who actually know "the best for society".
Ironically, these people think that anarchists are promoting an unrealistic utopian society.
