Some sane discourse about this situation.
Just the first 10 or 15 minutes of this film is enough to wake up the viewer. Every single person who casts a vote in this country should be forced to watch this and weigh in with an opinion. Unfortunately, simply viewing something doesn’t demonstrate the viewer’s capacity or will to accept it as discernible fact.
How do you feel living in a country where your government executes people who want to create a better society for everybody, and not just old, rich, white people? Are you foolish enough to think that this wouldn’t happen again today? It happened to Bernie Sanders. It happened to Julian Assange. It happened to Edward Snowden. People who tell the truth and want to improve things in this country are apparently considered to be expendable and a vulnerability, in fact.
And Barack Obama is probably the anti Kennedy. What a failure and complete corruption of a person he is and exemplifies. It’s all smiles and glimmer. No depth, no truth, no justice. What a fucking shame. I think we’re still waiting for our first black president.
This is a must-watch, folks. Before you close the book on Edward Snowden, you should watch this.
I feel horribly about Julian Assange, though. He’s fucked, man. A case of someone telling the truth about something and getting tortured for it, might be assassinated for it, by the nation that supposedly champions freedom of the press and all that shit. What hypocrisy. There should be no secrets, basically. But that is not the case. The actual machinations of the USA, Inc. are shielded from all eyes by default, because the corporate masters would stand to lose greatly should their actual motivations be revealed.
What a beautiful song, full of not-beautiful realities, that we must confront. 🙂 And we are confronting them! There is hope! We can turn this circus into a joyful party if we were only to choose to do so.
More required reading! 🙂 If you want to help the human species survive, that is! 🙂 If not, then just keep on watching MSNBC and think you know what’s happening on our planet. :-))))))))))
I’m continually astounded by the lack of personal accountability in our society. Finding someone who is willing to accept responsibility for something seems like a rare gem. Unfortunately there are too few of them gems and they are likely underappreciated, unacknowledged, and underpaid. Those people are what holds our society together.
