Weaving together breakthroughs in science, consciousness, and activism, 'Thrive' offers real solutions, empowering us with unprecedented and bold strategies for reclaiming our lives and our future. A Review by Martine Joseph: Everyone can 'Thrive', according to a new, leading-edge documentary impressively researched and organized by business executive Foster Gamble. Wake-up call with a plan: Change is imperative. Nothing less than transformation, personal, social, and global, will enable humanity to thrive, according to Gamble. Daring to follow the money, Gamble and his wife Kimberly Carter Gamble analyze underlying causes of scarcity and suffering worldwide. Old World order falling: The heads of three famous families have manipulated world wealth as part of a global domination agenda for centuries, Gamble asserts. Not everyone in these families is corrupt, he adds. The Bank for International Settlements (called 'the central bank of central banks'), international central banks, and national central banks control resources. Big banks, corporations, and governments lie beneath central banks in a 'pyramid of power'. Elite central bankers control finance, energy, food supplies, education, the media, and other systems. By keeping countries and citizens in debt, they effectively stifle human potential with the help of corporate-owned media, governments, major foundations, the IMF, and the World Bank. Many national economies have been harmed, according to the film. The 'elites' are actively seeking to destroy the U S economy, experts say. The number of global elites is tiny, says Gamble. In the U S, the ratio of citizens to these elite bankers is a million to one, he maintains. Individuals can exercise power in many ways. Bank locally. Buy and invest responsibly. Seek out news from independent sources. Take part in mass, critical actions. Express your uniqueness, says British author David Icke. Fear of ridicule is one way the global elite gets us to impose its norms on one another. Free energy based in science: Free, unlimited, clean energy is the film's central, revolutionary theme. Two elegant designs, the torus and the Vector Equilibrium (VE), can be used to produce free energy and promote international well-being, Gamble explains. The torus (or flower of life) is an energy pattern that appears in nature and across cultures. The V-E is the underlying structure of the torus, a 64-sided pattern that is 'the blueprint by which nature forms energy into matter'. What does all this mean? "Goodbye Exxon Mobil, goodbye oil, goodbye coal, goodbye linear transmission of electricity," says Steven Greer, M D, Director of 'The Disclosure Project'. Did you know that Dr Royal Rife invented technology that cured cancer in the 1920s? Have you heard of Nikola Tesla, who invented a technology that produced free, unlimited energy in 1901? The work of both men was destroyed, and their reputations were ruined. Archival footage shows government agents seizing revolutionary technologies. For those who doubt futuristic exposes like this one, detailed information sources are listed on the film's website. Among the prominent scientists and thinkers interviewed are: Nassim Haramein, cosmologist and inventor; Paul Hawken, environmentalist and entrepreneur; Catherine Austin Fitts, former Assistant Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development; Vandana Shiva, environmental activist and eco-feminist; and Elisabet Sahtouris, evolutionary biologist and futurist. Gamble integrates progressive, conservative and libertarian ideas into a model for change: Stage 1 û Reform Reform current systems to 'bring integrity and healing to our current condition'. Stage 2 û Limit Government Control Enhance the 'protection of individual rights and the commons'. Stage 3 û Voluntary Cooperation Voluntary cooperation would flourish as people live by 'rules, not rulers'. Economic reform in Stage 1, for example, includes: stop bailouts; dismantle the Federal Reserve; withdraw support from the IMF, World Bank, and Bank for International Settlements; refuse international taxes, and monetize debt. Following these steps would transform the arts, economics, education, environment, governance, health, infrastructure, justice, media relations, science, spirituality, and world view. Gamble acknowledges that he was born into the wealthy Procter & Gamble family, but has forged his own career path. "Integrity, freedom, and compassion can become the world's guiding principles," says Gamble. Bold and honest, this film offers hope and a blueprint for change.
