Peter Joseph is an American-born social critic and activist who has lectured around the world on the subject of cultural sustainability. Once deemed "The Herald of Occupy Wall Street" for his tacit prediction of inevitable global uprisings against inequality and economic injustice, his extensive media work has been translated into over 130 languages and experienced by 250 million people. Working in concert with numerous NPOs and grassroots organizations, Joseph's core focus is on socioeconomic structures that undermine progress in the areas of ecological and social justice. He has been featured and profiled in numerous media outlets, including the New York Times, The Huffington Post, Free-Speech TV, and TED, and has given over a thousand hours of interviews via radio shows and podcasts in the past decade. He is the president of the 501(c)(3) NPO The Zeitgeist Movement and currently resides in Los Angeles.
"This book is a fascinating read, and a vitally important one for
anyone who is tired of the status quo, seeks to understand why it
is so entrenched, and wants to do something about it."
New York Journal of Books "Peter Joseph is one of the great visionaries of our time. If there's a beautiful future and I think there will be then his fingerprints will be all over it."
Marianne Williamson, #1 New York Times bestselling author
"Since 9/11, security took over and retired human rights into a small closet. We need to get back to the issue of rights for all. Hopefully this important work will draw us closer to that reality and promise. Without economic realignment with nature to secure our habitat, along with conquering the sociological roots of fragmentation and bigotry, the human family is in peril." -Jack Healey, Head of Human Rights Action Center
"One of this generation's greatest visionaries delivers a
startling expose about the violent oppression that defines our
economic order, while issuing an urgent call for global activism to
unite to change it. Amidst a deepening crisis of capitalism and
inequality, coupled with an intensifying assault by the Empire's
elite, The New Human Rights Movement provides a crucial
roadmap for the movement toward the next system."
-Abby Martin, host of The Empire Files
