Zeitgeist is a German language expression literally translated: Zeit, time; Geist, spirit, meaning “the spirit of the age and its society”. The word zeitgeist describes the intellectual, cultural, ethical and political climate of an era or also a trend. In German, the word has more layers of meaning than the English translation, including the fact that Zeitgeist can only be observed for past events.
“Zeitgeist” refers to the ethos of an identified group of people, that expresses a particular world view which is prevalent at a particular period of socio-cultural progression.
Zeitgeist is the experience of a dominant cultural climate that defines, particularly in Hegelian thinking, an era in the dialectical progression of a people or the world at large. Hegel’s main contribution to the formulation of the concept of Volksgeist is the attribution of a historical character to the concept. The spirit of a nation is one of the manifestations of “World Spirit” (Weltgeist). That Spirit is essentially alive and active throughout mankind’s history. Now, the spirit of a nation is an intermediate stage of world history as the history of the World Spirit. The World Spirit gives impetus to the realization oof the historical spirits of various nations (Volksgeister’).

“From Cartagena, With Love
Colombia’s vibrant seaside city is experiencing a rebirth. The country’s long civil war has subsided, but the attraction for Liz Ozaist was deeper: She went to discover the place that first enchanted her father 20 years ago.”

From the page: “KKK endorses McCain
Normally I wouldn’t post something like this as it’s obvious that John McCain cannot control who endorses him and should not be judged by who endorses him unless he seeks out their endorsement in the first place. The only reason I am posting it is because of McCain’s insistence on saying that Hamas endorses Barack Obama. That’s as dirty as politics gets. You can’t really go any lower tha More..n McCain has by saying that. I’ve lost any respect I had left for him due to this slime ball political tactic.
Barack Obama of course has way too much class to bring up that the KKK endorses McCain but McCain deserves turn about for his gutter politics. If Hamas is fair game, then so is the KKK. Will the media cover this like they have the Hamas story? How is it any less relevant? It’s of course not any less relevant. Because neither story has any relevance. The only truly relevant point is that McCain would stoop that low. That shows a lack of character & class on McCain’s part.”
