I thought it was a good movie. I think it really wakes up a lot of people. But of course people want to make money too. So my guess is that was part of the equation.

soccer moms will eat up "thrive", they cant help but fall into the brain-washing NLP clap-trap from this "perfect man whore". the Thrive vid is beautiful, yes, makes logical sense, yes, ...perfect for the traumatized and weary sheeple to gobble up during this reflective thanksgiving season

Re: Anyone think the "Thrive Movement" is a scam?
So learning to think for yourself is a bad thing? God doesn't make mistakes. Sorry if you don't recognize all the coincidences around you. They are there to guide you and to keep you on a road away from traps. Learn to use them as a guide and fear is gone. I was very close to death last year from being brainwashed into taking prescription pills that the doctors keep wanting to feed me. One night I asked God to either let me live or Die. The next few days he started sending me the path to walk down. My gut feelings lead me to all the answers I needed to free myself from the spell they had my mind under. How can you claim that is NEW AGE? NEW AGE is another label just like Christian. God did not pull me out of Hell in order to be sucked into another trap. The entire system is a trap to keep you from thinking. Learn to think for yourself without depending on doctors, preachers and other smiley glad-hands. It is laughable people still fall for the traps by the Puppet Masters. I guess you will say Energy around us is also new age or the Chakra system that keeps you alive and feeling well?

Call if new age if you want but nothing God does is New Age. God is in control stop falling for shadows figures to keep you in a box.

Amy, I tried to explain my point of view on this. You have yours.

What I call myself and what and why I do something is something between God and myself.

Just do not appreciate being labled as fearful because I try to warn people of the NWO. I think I have read posts of yours and you do the same.

Not into arguing with anyone and try to avoid it. So this will be my last post to you, so you are welcome to have the last word.

Thanks for giving me the last word. We are on the same side in this. I choose to not fear what I cannot control. It does no good to allow these Puppet masters to cause me fear. They caused enough pain when I was asleep and listened to their half truths and pure propaganda. Their lies nearly killed me and God pulled me out of hell. We are both trying to survive these lessons so why not work together to make a better world. Do you believe God is allowing these bloodline families to rule us since they pinned his son own the cross for no reason at all? God has a plan and these people we are lead to fear are actually causing millions to wake up to the lies. Do you every wonder why the world is being split. Most people you see fighting today, do it because of labels and propaganda placed on them by MSM who are controlled by the Puppet Master’s. We are called Christians, New Age, Racist, Muslim, Hippie, Redneck etc. These labels keep use divided. When we search deep enough we would realize we can only take care of ourselves. All the other troubles in the world should be looked at as crossroads we can either allow our minds to wonder down or not. The media shows nothing but bad and depressing news in order to keep everyone thinking outside themselves. Change can only come from the inside. God will not lead us wrong if we know where he really is. He is inside of us not on the outside and not in a building.

Didn't God say he created us in his image? Me and you are on the same page against this evil but I don’t allow it to control my mind as much as I did in the past. I was afraid for months and wanted to spread as much NWO fear around as I could. I suddenly figured out that spreading fear keep me in fear. Even if the NWO is evil there is nothing I can personally do to stop it. I can follow my gut feeling to make sure I don't walk into a trap. If I do walk into a trap then it was meant to be. I will learn from it and become stronger.

Live each day without fear of the NWO or this movement if you feel it is not the right path for you to take. Please do not build up walls that keeps you from seeing everything. I love to come to this site to see what is going on around the world and to see the games being played. The fear is sometimes overwhelming but I now see it as a teaching tool. Smile and say hello to everyone and be sure to love your family and friends.

We are on a journey. You have a good heart so dont allow the puppet masters to cause anxiety or fear in it.

Re: Anyone think the "Thrive Movement" is a scam?
And threads like this prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that GLP has a serious infection of useful idiots, paid disinformation agents, the bluntly ignorant, and some of the worst group think followers that can be found on the internet.

What's worse than the useful idiots and paid disinformation agents, are the ignorant, group think followers who get off fitting in with the GLP "in crowd", doing their part to blindly follow what ever the GLP party line is. Let me find a majority and fit right they think. I would hate to have to examine something for myself, and then draw my own conclusion, a bunch of arm-chair quarterbacks who have never done anything for humanity can formulate my opinion for me.

First, the thread is started by someone who opens with a far reaching, completely erroneous, and slanderous comment. No supporting evidence, no indication (either overtly, or by presentation of information contained within) that they even bothered to watch the film.

Followed closely by "yah, it's odd", then "oh yah it should have been free. Damn those OWS people who want lower costs of living, and no bailouts for people, they should work for their money. But when someone spends years involving hundreds of people, probably traveling to many places around the world, they should do it for free. In fact, anyone trying to spread information and open peoples eyes to new ways of thinking should do it for free, but me, I won't work unless it's minimum wage at least."

Then move on to more incorrect, patently false accusations like "It looks like another environmental film sponsored by the UN", when that's not even what the film is about. Of course, the same poster doesn't wait long and gets his last post, first page position, to link the green agenda trying to create a relationship between the two for the ignorant group think followers that inhabit this forum.

Of course, we again didn't have to wait long before constitution with a bible on it avatar was back to share more wonderful words of wisdom, "environmental, new age, gaia, UN" is all he saw, he adds for anyone without working eyes, ears and brains. Something he apparently lacks himself, since he again apparently hasn't watched the film.


For those who partake in this behavior as useful idiots or paid disinformation agents, I pity you beyond anyone else. For the rest, who are just to ignorant and can't stand doing anything but participating in group think, you guys remind me of religious zealots, who act on faith alone, that the GLP gods have carefully packaged the appropriate opinion for you, and you'll be safe in harboring. You're disgusting.


Remember folks, don't get caught up in discussing the widely available, heavily documented, easily provable facts discussed in the film, instead use adhominen attacks of the film maker, and throw unfavorable labels all over the film itself, so the brain dead know exactly where to place their opinion, and have clever names to call it when they repeat the opinion you've helped manufacture.


Some day you idiots are going to look back on what you've done to further the destruction of humanity, and the installation of a global totalitarian police state, and you'll be forced to reconcile the fact that you my friend, are a fucking idiot.

Re: Anyone think the "Thrive Movement" is a scam?
I think their marketing term, "Premiering online on 11/11/11 was misleading," it should have said PAY TO DOWNLOAD ON 11/11/11.

Unfortunately, that'd put A LOT OF PEOPLE OFF and would flag up the scam-accusation merchants to do what they're doing, except earlier.

And to be honest, I haven't vested a whole lot of effort into conspiracy research. (Where to start?) I admit that, but this movie put a lot of theories and explained them really well for the causal conspiracy buff at the very least. I think there was a really positive message to discover the truth and open our eyes in the movie. Isn't that what GLP is all about? I think people here just argue with something for the sake of argument. Or maybe it's just plain paranoia stacked upon paranoia; going too far down the rabbit hole.

Anyway, I think the movie was well made. It managed to cram a LOT of information into 2 hours or so. Of course I'm not going to close my mind and say, "Yep this is it, and the book is closed!" Of course there's more to be researched and analyzed.

This is what I'm talking about. You're just throwing the power of paranoid suggestion out there. "It could be bullshit about bullshit." stoned

I think humanity has some deeply ingrained trust issues. It all started when we found out Santa wasn't real or something, I don't know. I'm not saying everyone is honest - in a way we are all hiding parts of ourselves in certain circumstances for the status quo, but I think the movie itself made a good point: We're led to believe we're evil, liars, and greedy by our society and culture. I don't hold that divisive belief. I know a lot of good people out there who are the exact opposite of that. It's a freeing philosophy, and the truth sets you free as it's written.

If you are happy with the way the direction the world is currently taking then absolutely Thrive is a scam.

Thrive will wake up alot of people who we like to call asleep sheep, who do not go out of the social "norms" who watches the controlled MSM every night, goes to work, loves thier family, pays thier bills, questions nothing.

It is time for the release of free energy to the masses, this one thing alone would be such a step forward for humanity as a whole and go a long way to start the release of the worlds population from the elite bankers. How would our lives change if we were not dependant daily on oil?

The system is currently broken and is in dire need of a new direction. This can be done without forcing it upon others and in a peaceful non violent manner. It is time for a change and Thrive might just be that spark to start a global awakening for the sheep masses.
