Now Chris Martenson needs YOUR help!

Friday, October 24, 2008, 1:36 PM


Chris Martenson fans,

By now all of you know that the Crash Course is finally complete. Hats off to Chris, who has put over four years of his life into this herculean effort. Chris has not only amassed this data and created the Crash Course; he’s also committed himself to giving the Crash Course away for free to everyone.

We hope you’ve enjoyed the Crash Course. Now Chris needs your help spreading the word. Chris is passionate about getting the message of the Crash Course out to everyone. So much so that he’s decided to forego the obvious opportunity to sell this fine work for a fair price. Instead he plans to continue giving it away for the sake of public service.

We have no advertising or marketing budget whatsoever. To get the word out, we need to “go viral” with our message, so we desperately need your help to get the word out about the free Crash Course. Specifically, I’m asking everyone to help in the following ways:

  • Tell everyone you know about the Crash Course and encourage them to watch it for free online. Send an e-mail out to everyone you know with a link to www.PeakProsperity.com/crashcourse.
  • Soon we’ll be announcing our DVD distribution plans. When DVDs are available, we’ll be encouraging everyone to help get them out to as many viewers as possible. I can tell you that we’re going to distribute it essentially at cost (in the range of $5 we think) and specifically encourage people to copy it and distribute it further. Our goal is simple: Get as many people to watch it as possible.
  • We need your help to get people in Washington to pay attention. If everyone e-mails their congresspeople and tells them to go watch the Crash Course online, a few may actually have their staff do so. Sending the DVD will be even better – imagine 30 showing up from different constituents.
  • We’ve already gotten great feedback from subscribers who have been throwing Crash Course parties where they show the Crash Course to their friends and neighbors and then discuss it afterward as a group. We encourage this and any other way you can think of to promote the message.
  • If you have access to anyone in the media, please talk to them about Chris’ work. It’s great that Chris’ articles have been published in some rural newspapers, but we also need to get him into the New York Times!

This is a grassroots effort, and we really appreciate your help. The more we unify as a group to spread the word, the more hope we have that these issues will be debated as a matter of national public policy. Thanks in advance for your help!

One more thing: submit the crash course to social sites like digg, reddit, del.icio.us, facebook, etc. I just hope chris' server/bandwidth can handle it.

Re: Now Chris Martenson needs YOUR help!

it has been discussed on a social website that I frequent which is how i found it. I have it as my tag line in my emails, and have mailed many links out to everyone.

 

Someone contact the Coast to Coast network. I sent in a request for them to invite Chris for an interview. I listen to the show often which is another reason I got hooked onto Chris's site as I was a Trends Research member and fan of Gerald Celante and his predictions which are errily similar and that man is often on the show. This show reaches a lot of people!

Re: Now Chris Martenson needs YOUR help!

Following includes detailed synopsis of Chris's entire Crash Course at Exponential-Yewgenics, along with Dr. Al Bartlett's Energy, Population & Mathematics, and Exponential Population Consequences Issues. It was emailed to Simmons & Co. International (Largest Energy Investment Bank in World), Money and Markets, and posted at New Scientist.

RE: The JunkScience of your October 23, 2008 article, Greens: 'Economic growth is killing the planet'

It appears from the statement:



If you need more evidence that the Greens intend to destroy our standard of living, you need not look further than the Oct. 18 issue of New Scientist magazine

that it is highly plausible, that your aforementioned article, has perhaps not considered, among much else, the following information:

1. The Pentagon and Intelligence Communities Perspective on Exponential Factors of Population viz a viz Resources, namely Exponential Yewgenics: See: Pin2Gong-HUMINT

2. Additional Information on the Mathematical Reality, as so eloquently described by among others, Albert Einstein, and Dr. Albert Bartlett, of the Exponential Function; The Energy Economics of Feebleminded Addicts to Politically Correct Religious and Corporate $lave and €annon Fodder Breeding Economics & Religion.... See: Exponential-Yewgenics.

3. CEO of the largest Energy Investment Bank in the World, Mr. Mathew Simmons, Energy White Paper: Revisiting The Limits to Growth: Could The Club of Rome Have Been Correct, After All?, by Matthew Simmons; CEO - Simmons&Co.Intnl See: Fleur-de-Lis

4. US Naval Services Long-Term Study: Global Tipping Points on Food, Water, Energy, Pollution, Population, & Natural Resources; Money and Markets, and The Population Explosion: The Most Powerful Force on Earth, by Martin Weiss, Ph.D., Money and Markets; See: NavyJAG-HUMINT


Quote:
Sometimes you may wonder:
Why are nations so committed to economic growth at nearly any cost?
Why do central banks continue to pump in so much money long after they recognize the inevitability of its inflationary consequences?
Why has GDP growth become the supreme icon of most governments, businesses and investors?
When debts and deficits run amuck, why dont our leaders just slow down, take a breather, and focus on finding a more stable path?
Your answers may be varied. But if you trace back through the chain of cause and effect, you will always return to one single, overriding factor: The population explosion colliding with finite resources. More mouths to feed. More demand. More pressure to perpetuate growth. More inflation.


From 'whom', do you suppose this 'PRESSURE' comes to perpetuate 'economic-growth' and 'population growth'; and consequently, the population explosion colliding with finite resources?

Somehow, I don't think it's any of the individuals you are so enthusiastically criticising? Is it?

Might it be accurate to conclude that the junkscience is YOUR OWN?

Respectfully Submitted,

Plaintiff Counsell: JAG-IA 07-146

PS: FYI: Arguably the most authoritative work on terrorism was the February 1986 Report of the Vice President's Task Force on Combating Terrorism, chaired by Vice President George Bush, Sr. This report concludes that the root cause of terrorism is overpopulation (i.e. the population explosion colliding with finite resources).

Re: Now Chris Martenson needs YOUR help!

I just shot an e-mail off to NBC nightly news as a suggestion for their "Making a Difference" segment.  I think trying to get the Crash Course on PBS may be another good way to get the material out to more people.   

Good luck!

Re: Now Chris Martenson needs YOUR help!

YouTube is nice for a low fi, easy access version of the presentation.  In addition, you don't need to worry about your server load.

 I was also thinking about bittorrent.  The Crash Course video (DVD/Divx/XviD) is a perfect example of legitimate use of the protocol.  People could contribute then simply by seeding the presentation.  

Great work!  Thanks so much for all your hard work.  The information in The Crash Course is life changing.

Re: Now Chris Martenson needs YOUR help!

Erik & Chris,

I would like to know how soon I can get a DVD copy, besides sharing with community and family; I need for following; which I imagine shall benefit greatly many people, not only on an 'educational' level, but on a 'legal' level.

The issues in Chris's Crash Course, -- particularly the Exponential Functions of Population viz a viz Resources, and the extensive lack of detailed simple education for citizens on these issues (in simple language as Chris so excellently does in the Crash Course) -- were submitted into the Court Record of HC-CPD Appeal A 696-04 (subsequently transferred to JAG 07-146).

Today, I was informed by the South African Police, that the South African Goverment, are reinstating their previously dropped charges of Crimen Inuria by myself against the leader of the Independent Democrats, Mrs. Patricia de Lille (in aforementioned Legal Matter, referred to above).

If Mrs. de Lille decides to go ahead with the charges, by way of a Trial, then among others, she shall need to testify, on her own behalf. I shall also call Tony Leon (former leader of Democratic Alliance), Nelson Mandela, Manto Tshalbala-Msimang, Archbishop Tutu, Thabo Mbeki, and a few other current and former members of the South African Goverment. These individuals were submitted with legal documentation, via the Office of Mr. Tony Leon (then leader of the Democratic Alliance, who provided written confirmation of having forwarded the Legal Documentation to these individuals in this matter), on these issues; and particularly on their failure to clearly and articulately speak up as 'political' and 'religious' 'leaders' on these issues.

Naturally, should the trial go ahead, and accordingly aforementioned be required to testify; the media shall be forced to cover the trial.

A simplistic allegation of the trial -- hereto relevant -- is as follows: Reasonable citizens given impartial information stated simply and clearly; explaining the interrelated issues of energy to the economy (peak oil), money creation, exponential functions, and particularly their consequences, exponential population growth, the benefits of zero or negative population growth; could be relied on to make wiser long term decisions for the benefit of the ecology, economy and their children and grandchildrens future as free men and women in a Republic.

I would like to provide the court and aforementioned politicians, and anyone following the court proceedigns with Chris's Crash Course, as a -- hopefully exponential function education viral resource -- and accordingly submit it into the Court Record as evidence, for the public's concern on these issues.

Lara (JMCSwan)

Re: Now Chris Martenson needs YOUR help!

I stumbled upon this website when someone watched my youtube video on the bailout. They commented on my video by thanking me for the info and said I should check out PeakProsperity.com. I ended up watching the crash course and became addicted, ever since I have stopped by this site once a day to go along with my other research on the economy. I plan on including the link on my next video.

 My suggestion is to do the same. Respond to youtube vids, articles, and chat threads that are in line with the topics discussed here and plug this site. Put the links in your uploaded videos, hyperlink with all emails you send out. I stand behind Chris more than I do any candidate of any party. My video's get around 500-800 hits, that's quite an audience (albiet a small one). Many people get much more than that, people read the comments section, I know that I do, so post the link to this site. By the way, I threw a little money in the offering plate chris as it was passed around and I hope you make use of it while it still has value, haahahha.

I could help

To get the message out then do several things:

1). Make the 'Crash Course' downloadable so it can be distributed.

2). You could make it available via Torrents such as BitTorrent

3). Upload the 'Crash Course' to YouTube and other social/community sites.

I own an internet server at a Tier 1/Class A ISP and I would possibly be willing to dedicate a certain amount of bandwidth to allow the 'Crash Course' to be distributed and downloaded.

YouTube I believe is switching to over the current 10 minute limit soon. I read about it a couple of months ago. I don't know when they will do this or if they already have.

Doing my best overseas

I am in China and Taiwan for long periods, and I too have educated people about what is going on in America, because it greatly effects the business in the Asian areas. I have not shown the presentation, but if you get to the point where you want a translation or subtitled version in Chinese, I could probably do it for you. A majority of business and people in general have no idea how world banking systems work, how America drops a pebble and it becomes a tidal wave in China, etc. etc.

You're not kidding... China hasn't even had the chance to finish their industrial revolution.  I can't imagine what that country will go through during its "Great Depression".  Talk about a rug being pulled out from beneath their feet.  At least I don't think the Chinese will make the same mistake we are doing in the U.S.-- i.e. I don't think the Chinese will be willing to go through this a second time.  For us in this country, a "depression" will become a norm if we don't get rid of Central Banks.  For China, this is like a bad trip to the casino for them.  This meltdown is like a psychological sickness... This is very sad.  I wish more countries would reject the intrusion of the Central Banks taking over their country.  Soon, China will regret having jumped over that wall into "civilization" and the "post-modern" world of chaos.

Education is the key and the weapon of defense.

Translate the Crash Course into as many languages as possible.  Start with languages, of those countries, who do not currently hold a Central Bank.  Their antibody will be the Crash Course.  Then attack those countries with the Crash Course via translated version, who are currently infected by the Central Banks, so they may have sufficient information to know the dangers of the disease (Central Bank) and fight against it.

I say we use "The Tyranny of the Masses" in a good and constructive way.  If we all have the information and everyone, in every country, protests against the Central Banks, then that is a good start-- start handing out flu shots and vaccinations en masse.

hard time finding a country without a central bank

Indirectly, Krogoth has explained why this is going to be a severe, long running, worldwide depression. Consider that every school, college and university in the world teaches the same Keynesian nonsense based on Soviet style central planning. The central banks and their State patrons all share the same groupthink. They are deathly afraid of free markets and they refuse to entertain the slightest thought that they are the source of the problem.

Watch the way they use free market terms even though our economy doesn't remotely resemble a free market. They blame the distortions created by  their mercantilst bureaucracies on free trade. They blame deregulation on the license they give to their corporate and banking friends to commit fraud and theft. We heard Greenspan recently blame his errors on his free market ideology. Ayn Rand must be rolling in her grave. No failure is too great to dissuade them from destroying the market economy.

I see a future along the lines of a Dark Ages that followed the collapse of Rome. To thrive in this environment takes different skills.

Re: Now Chris Martenson needs YOUR help!

I second that. Infact it would be good for Chris to put the bookmarking icons on each video chapter. Bookmarkify looks like a good way to do that. A Facebook group would be good too.

Personally I've already plugged the site on two of my own blogs and my facebook page and bookmarked it on del.icio.us.

Re: Now Chris Martenson needs YOUR help!
wait til they go into withdraw for the SSRI antidepressants they can no longer afford to buy or can no longer access for some other reason. That's when it's going to get dangerous. 9 out of 10 school shootings are by kids who have been prescribed Ritalin or SSRIs. Move to a country with gun control.

This may sound wacky, but I agree completely.  SSRI withdrawal is a serious problem, and few doctors are trained to manage it properly.  For people who've been on these drugs for several years (or longer), it can take years to withdraw from them in such a way that the worst side effects are avoided.  If these drugs become unavailable abruptly, which seems likely at some point in the future, we are going to have a big problem on our hands.

Side effects of withdrawal can include suicide and violent and aggressive behavior.  In fact, the risk of these side effects is greatest when people are just starting or just stopping the drugs.

Why is this a big deal?  Because 30 million people in the US alone are currently taking SSRIs.  

Yikes. 

One possible solution: switch them to St. John's Wort.  The Cochrane Database Systems Review just published a meta-analysis indicating that SJW is just as effective as SSRIs with only a tiny fraction of the side effects.  Unfortunately, you will probably never hear of this study because the pharmaceutical companies don't want you to.

Re: Now Chris Martenson needs YOUR help!

OK, to spread the word, one thing to try is StumbleUpon.com.

Sure it takes a bit of work to sign up and figure out how it works, but once you get it, you use the toolbar to rate sites and sooner or later after you've rated a few sites, it will show you other like minded people who are "thumb-ing up" similar sites.

I have no ties to this tool, it just happens to work and there are a lot of cool people that hang out there.

Good work.  Keep it up.

YouTube.

I realise that you (Chris) may be loathe to 'lose control' of your content which this would imply, but I cannot think of a better way of getting the message out. FWIW, I would like to embed a few of your videos on our blog, but don't really want to send folks straight over here -- dealing with the issues discussed here can pose challenges to the world-view of many; challenges that can be more readily addressed by others.

This may sound lame, but what about MySpace.  If MySpace were a country, it would be the 5th largest country in the world.  I have been on there since April of this year and I already have 2,000 + friends.

 www.myspace.com/getpaidtosave

You can send out bulletins that go out to the people.  Peter Schiff has a profile and he sends out bulletins all the time.  The bulletins are read and often re-posted by mulitiple fans who in turn have hundreds of friends on there site.  And further more, it's free.  Let me know if you need any advice on how to add targeted audience friends on there quickly.

All my best,

Kirsty

Thanks. My brevity did make it sound abit wacky. :)

 I do take the issue very seriously though. I recently watched  The Drugging of Our Children

 and it explains the problem very well.

Digg - www.chrismartenson.com
I have added you to digg:

 http://digg.com/educational/Chris_Martenson_The_light_through_the_economic_crisis

 In order to be able to digg it, all you have to do, is login or register it's really simple and fast to do so and then click 'digg it'

 I also think:

 1) A YouTube version would be useful.

2) A facebook/myspace/bebo and all the other social websites out there pages would be a good idea.

3) The DVD distribution is a great idea.

4) If everyone, puts it on a bulletin, posts, notes, as there msn message, email signature etc that would really help.

5) Emailing it to people who are in higher up positions is a great idea too. I have emailed to my local mp, Councils and University staff.

6) Online seminars sound like a good idea.

7) Posting it on forums you visit is another great way.

8) emailing it to radio stations is a good idea, newspapers, magazines... 

I hope the word gets spread to people who will watch and learn from it.

Re: Now Chris Martenson needs YOUR help!

I had also been thinking about the idea of contacting local colleges and universities.  Chris's Crash Course seems like the kind of innovative and timely presentation of important ideas that places of learning  would be interested in presenting.

I'm also thinking about our local arts institution, which prides itself in presenting innovative series and ideas.

Re: Now Chris Martenson needs YOUR help!

I might also suggest:

www.meetup.com

I think it would benefit those who have seen the Crash Course, to consider "local" meetups, to find like-minded individuals, and spread the word, within their cities, communities and neighborhoods.

Ultimately, (and this dovetails with Chapter 20 of the Crash Course), there must be a bridge between theory, understanding and action.

Action requires human effort, and www.meetup.com allows for the kind of contact required for communities to discuss, plan, and ACT.

Hello People,

I come from an ex - communiste country.

I've got the ideea.

All right, the communisme didn't work out.

I've got that loud and clear.

Hello !!!

Apparently the capitalist system just broke its neck, pardon my french.

What can we do to fix our problems earthlings???

Unfortunatelly we live all on the same planet.

We can not afford saying: I got fed up with this, stop the earth from turning, I want to get down...

I spread the word among my friends concerning The Crash Course.

Can we fix something???

Isn't it to late allready????

GDon,

www.meetup.com looks great.  I don't see that anyone has started a group under Chris' name but I'm sure it is a matter of time....another approach would be to start or join a group based on the type of action you plan to take...

All the best,

Cool!  Anglo Far East Bullion Company has Chris's Crash Course on their home page:  There is a banner at the top right that links to the course:

 www.anglofareast.com

 I wonder if oranizations such as the Ludwig Von Mises Institute or GATA can be contacted to put up a similar banner.

The word IS getting out!  I'm going to post the course to my 2200 friends on MySpace.

It's never too late as long as there is at least one last person standing on this earth.  With the billions of people in the world, I cannot believe there haven't been more ideas/theories formally drawn up...  where are the ingenious people?  Have the all left the planet?  Are the genes hibernating?  Or are they all fixated on a final unified theory of physics?  There has to be someone out there with a solution or at least an idea??

Solutions to economic issues . . Chris Dollars!

Points into the system: I've been reading more and more about Community Dollars and would really like to see more examples of uses and how people initiated a system. . . we could make "Chris Dollars!". Could this not be a computerized system for point dollars (we'll call them points) to be traded in a community OR worldwide? This would ultimately look like a paypal account but only has points in it (and according to the community dollars sites I've read - the points need to be used  by a certain time or they start loosing value - thus the points keep flowing).

Less debt: Taking money out of the "system" could include things like contracts instead of loans-  Example - buying realestate- our first inclination is to contract for deed property. I would imagine there are other items which could be bought like this.  The flip side is to do "lay-away" sales for more items.

More ideas please-

Re: hard time finding a country without a central bank
Hi - Can you explain for me in simple terms (I'm a simple gal) what the danger is in central banks? Your definition of "market economy"? I know these are naive questions, but I'm only just beginning to take responsibility for getting more informed enough to make intelligent financial decisions on my own behalf. - S.

Zeitgeist or Money as Debt

Well, you need to watch the movie Zeitgeist or the cartoon Money as Debt to understand the control Central Banks have, but basically it means private people are profiting from the Federal Reserve, and the American government pays interest to the Federal Reserve, adding to the deficit. This is more than likely replicated throughout the world. I still have not had a cofirmation from Chris on this, or how he feels about it. I think Chris and Erik are concentrating on the paying subscribers.
