Culture in Decline is a 30 min., Bi-Monthly Web-Series created and hosted by Peter Joseph. As with all of Peter Joseph’s video work, it is part of a Free Distribution Media Project that allows open, non-profit distribution of his film media across the world. The Series’ central viewing medium is YouTube, via the “Culture in Decline” Official Channel. The first episode of the first season called “What Democracy?” premiered on July 29th 2012, going viral with over 70,000 views in the first 10 days.
“Culture in Decline” is a satirical yet serious expression that challenges various cultural phenomena existing today which most of society seem to take for granted. Nothing is considered sacred in this Series except for a detached benchmark of fundamental logic and reason – forcing the viewer to step out of the box of “Normality” and to consider our societal practices without traditional baggage and biases. Common themes include Politics, Economics, Education, Security, Religion, Vanity, Governance, Media, Labor, Technology and other issues centric to our daily lives.
The Pilot Episode of Culture in Decline, “What Democracy?” was met with great praise from various Counter-Culture Icons, such as Comedian Joe Rogan, who stated:
“Peter Joseph is asking the questions and proposing the possible solutions that we should be demanding from the elected leaders of this crazy world. His brilliant analysis of this ridiculous system we’re operating under is one of the most important voices for change in this generation.”

Peter Josephis an independent filmmaker and social activist. He has written, directed, narrated, scored and produced three documentary films called Zeitgeist: The Movie (2007), Zeitgeist: Addendum (2008) and Zeitgeist: Moving Forward (2011).
The Zeitgeist Movement’s first “Zday” occurred in 2009 with a sold out, featured Event in New York City, covered by the New York Times and other news outlets. Each year since, in mid-March, this gesture of Global Unity, Activism and Education has continued. Apart from the “Main events” which are international in general, Chapters of The Zeitgeist Movement also conduct regional events in parallel. On average, about 400 events occur each year, each working to educate their region about possibility for a new future for humanity.
“Zeitgeist Day”, or ZDAY for short, is an annual, global event day which occurs in the middle of March, each year. The goal is to increase public awareness of The Zeitgeist Movement. If you are not familiar with the tenets and goals of The Zeitgeist Movement:
In 2009, we had over 450 events in over 70 countries. These events were well documented by news agencies across the world, including the New York Times in America. In 2010 and 2011 we averaged about 300+ events each year.
A Zeitgeist Day Event can take many forms, ranging from a simple showing of DVD media like Zeitgeist: Addendum to prerecorded lectures ; to interactive question-and-answer events with Chapter Organizers in various regions, giving their own unique presentations.
While it is not required to be in a regional Zeitgeist Movement Chapter to have an event, it is recommended. To find a Chapter in your area, please check Here. Generally speaking, we encourage each Chapter to help organize events in their region. This is not a requirement, however….
