The fatal problem many videos like this have

is that they claim we have a capitalist system when in fact we don't. What we do have is crony-capitalism, where corporations and special interests are intertwined with government. Without this distinction, people will unjustly demonize capitalism, as this video does, and come up with solutions that have socialistic undertones.

AND HIS NUMBER IS 666

1: And I stood upon the sand of the sea, 2: And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. 3: And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 4: And they worshiped the dragon which gave power to the beast: and they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like the beast? who is able to make war with him? 5: And there was given to him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given to him to continue forty and two months. 6: And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7: And it was given to him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and languages, and nations. 8: And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9: If any man hath an ear, let him hear. 10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

11: And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. 12: And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13: And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 14: And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and lived. 15: And he had power to give life to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16: And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17: And that no man might buy or sell, save him that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18: Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty six.

One problem...

As people ratchet up their awareness, gov't ratchets up it's use of force. The best consumer decision at this point is to arm yourself.

On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.

I agree with Blueshift below

This film has a number of problems. I can't believe he's still pushing that climate change hoax. And I think it was a mistake to have McNDAACain in the film as he's one of the biggest warmongerers out there, though, it showed he was open to feature people who come from all sides. But Woody! America is a REPUBLIC! I am really sick of this democracy garbage. And unions have become the bane of our society and have lost their usefulness.
The real highlight was seeing Ron Paul in the film.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
James Madison

Yeah, I agree. Someone's been

Yeah, I agree. Someone's been miss-nameing countries for a long time. There was never one republic in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The People's Republic of China is not a republic nor a comunist country. It is a totalitarian dictatorship. The Republublic of the Congo and most all other "Republic's of..." are puppet dictatorships. So it is no wonder that these united States of America are called demoracies instead of a republics, just as the union is called a country in light of the fact that the Union is just that... a union of 50 nations, and the Unitsd States is their international corporat agent.

this is older...

uses scenes from Why We Fight, and that BBC documentary on media manipulation and the narrator uses word for word language from Zeitgeist.

Good stuff though.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Video Has a few problems!

There is some good info here, however:

@13:16 They make it sound like the Government doesn't have enough power...

@45:12 they make it like a bad thing to get rid of unions and that all the progressive work we have made (ya right) since the new deal the evil elites want to take away. (seems like they promote regulations and seem to focus more on corporatism which is only part of the story.

I smell a little socialism in this movie....when you hear the words democracy(as opposed to republic),resources,and when you hear Much more anti-corporations talk than anti-government.. then you typically have a movie that has some important facts but has a layer of socialism painted very sneakily in these types of movies.

Now I don't know anything for sure, but what do you all think?... look at the references I make and see if you can find more ( i know there is more).

Peace, Justice & a clean environment. We can fix this system.

This documentary covers a wide berth.

Weirdest thing

Right as I saw this I was flipping through netflix and I went up once and it landed right on it. Haven't watched it though.

No train to Stockholm.

Peace, justice & clean environment. Just posted timeline.

Mentioned some highlights to peak your interest.

Linked to Woodie Guthrie, Farmer Labor Train union protest song to get you in a rallying mood.

Please enjoy both.
