Shill, idiot, or genuine in General Chat Posted March 23, 2022 I'm curious about the motivations behind zeitgeist. I enjoyed the first edition quite a bit. Yes, the arguments were rather over-simplified (part 1), extremely derivative of previous work (part 2) but then really finds it's groove in part 3 on banking. It seems like the 2nd and 3rd? editions were rather lackluster and uninspired: maybe they were just bad instead of coopted?
