- Zeitgeist - Part III: Don't Mind the Men Behind the Curtain - is more New World Order thinking
- Zeitgeist - Conclusion
The overarching thesis of Zeitgeist is the ultra-paranoid belief that every institution is lying to you and is out to get you. This includes the government, the church, lots of secret societies, the media, the rich, and even universities. Needless to say, such a belief system tends to embrace most conspiracy theories as 'proof' of those beliefs.
There is no inclusion of contrary evidence or opinions. It is a completion immersion into the filmmakers point-of-view with no regard for any true scholarly exploration.
