Zeitgeist Addendum, attempts to locate the root causes of this pervasive social corruption, while offering a solution. This solution is not based on politics, morality, laws, or any other “establishment” notions of human affairs, but rather on a modern, non-superstitious based understanding of what we are and how we align with nature, to which we are a part. The work advocates a new social system which is updated to present day knowledge, highly influenced by the life long work of Jacque Fresco and The Venus Project.

The film begins and ends with excerpts from a speech by Jiddu Krishnamurti. The remainder of the film is narrated by Peter Joseph and divided into four parts, each prefaced by an on-screen quotation from a notable scholar: Krishnamurti, John Adams, Bernard Lietaer, and Thomas Paine, respectively.
Part One discusses the monetary system in the United States through the fractional reserve banking system as illustrated in the book, “Modern Money Mechanics”. Part One discusses the mechanism of money creation as an exchange between the government and the central bank (Federal Reserve in the U.S.).
Part Two shares an interview with John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman, who said he was involved in the subjugation of Latin American economies by multinational corporations, including the United States government’s involvement in the overthrow and installation of various Latin American heads-of-state.
Part Three introduces Jacque Fresco and the Venus Project, and it asserts a need to move away from current socio-economic paradigms.
Fresco states that capitalism perpetuates the conditions it claims to address, as problems are only solved if there is money to be made, and if more money can be made by propagating the problem rather than solving it, the problem will be propagated.
The final statement of the film is to boycott the most powerful banks in the Federal Reserve System, the major news networks (CNN, ABC, NBC, Fox, etc.), the military, energy corporations, all political systems; and to join, support, and proliferate The Zeitgeist Movement.
