Is this man telling a lot of truth about our world??? (YouTube Video)

As the saying goes, "Money makes the world go round". But how true and how deep is this truth? An interesting question I think.

For example, this man might be telling a lot of truth about our political and our economic systems. This is a YouTube link of him at a protest below:

Another thing, I also I found out this man is part of a movement called the Zeitgeist Movement. And I also found a very interesting film made by the founder of this movement. Here's the film. It's called Zeitgeist Moving Forward 2011 (25 million views already). It is really worth watching:

I do agree that a lot of environmental harm is caused by irresponsible capitalism.

This movement definitely has good intentions, but I'm not sure if their method of activism is very effective. What is their stance on Nuclear Energy?

Environmentalism is probably the most important cause we have today (aside from veganism of course). Millions of lives are on the line if we don't do something about it soon.

Speaking of causes, I'm not sure if you can be an environmentalist and not be vegan or at least vegetarian, since the two basically go hand in hand with each other.
