The Zeitgeist Movement Challenge

The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM) is conducting a challenge, offering a formal platform to anyone who thinks they can legitimately demonstrate that TZM's central thesis of a Natural Law Resource-Based Economy (NLRBE), or part of it, is flawed.

Why are you doing this?
Mirroring Sam Harris' recent "The Moral Landscape Challenge", TZM thinks this will provide a unique platform to further the intellectual pursuit of social and economic sustainability. Any scientific field must be consistently open to new information that can update current understandings. Since TZM deals in what could be considered the broadest scientific field, that being a science of society itself, which of course references all other scientific fields, TZM must be open to new information or new arguments that can alter its advocacy initiatives and understandings.

How does the challenge work exactly?
Submit a no-more-than-1,000 word essay (as a Word doc or PDF) by July 31, 2014 at 11:59pm PST to: challenge(at)thezeitgeistmovement.com . One essay per person -- please do not send multiple drafts. Essays not conforming to these rules will be automatically disqualified. The essay must challenge TZM's central thesis or part of it -- not peripheral issues.
