                                         Surviving the Zeitgest: Thriving in a Strange-Spirited Age

      Struggling to keep hope alive in the Zeitgeist, the spirit of our age? If so consider joining this safe place for discussing how to prosper in our strange land: a country run by oligarchs (see * note below) but supported by us, the very middle-class they’re scrunching.

      Zeitgeisters are less interested in fixing “The System” than in finding bright, insightful and even privately amusing ways to play the system. Whether we’re struggling to pay for college tuition, to find credible narratives that will sell in Hollywood, or just trying to hold onto increasingly demanding jobs, we’re united by a common struggle: turning our perceived disability—different points of view—into a strength that can help us not only survive, but thrive, as strangers in this strange land.

      We seek, in short, to help each other on two levels: personally (by learning how to see our "cup" as half-full, not half-empty) and professionally (by helping us market our optimistic “half-full cup” narratives.

* That, at least, is the conclusion of “Saving Capitalism,”  a new book by Robert Reich publicly praised by top Democratic gurus (e.g. Larry Summers) and quietly embraced by GOP Presidential hopefuls.

    "Hi Alex and everyone else. When I first saw this group I thought it had to do with the Zeitgeist Movement and the Zeitgeist series of documentaries by Peter Joseph (I don't recommend the 1st one)...."
