"Liberation" - An Action-Packed Libertarian Short Film

Check out my new action-packed short film, Liberation! It's set in a dystopian near-future and has some VERY libertarian themes and imagery that I think you guys will appreciate!

Please give it a watch and share it around!

Meh....

That wasn't "libertarian" at all. It was a purely Christian message. Not a bad one, it was a very good lesson in following your religious and political leaders into authoritarian Hell.

But there were no libertarian themes in it. Very well done, I was pretty impressed. Although, I have to mention, the absurdity of stopping a 3 ton dump truck before it collides with a 200 pound chain-link fence.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

Really?

There's nothing libertarian about condemning the practice of throwing perpetrators of victimless crimes into cages? Or making the government the bad guy? Or accusing statists of worshipping the government? Or showing how heinous people's actions can be when they "just follow orders?" Or criticizing theocracies? Or showing the "religious right" and their God-and-country BS in a negative light?

That stuff is all in the film, so I'm really not sure how you can say its, "not libertarian at all."

True...sort of

While that was there, the motivation for all of it was being a "true Christian". The motivation of the hero wasn't to rescue children because what was happening was wrong, he did it because he was following a ghostly Jesus. It may be masked, but very obvious to someone like me.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

Actually...

He DID rescue the kids because what was happening to them was wrong. He does it to try to make things right. Saul (the soldier) says as much in his dialogue. He doesn't even think he can be forgiven. His brother also tells him that he should help the others, but not because it will somehow atone for his sins, but because it is simply the right thing to do.

Saul doesn't actually see Jesus until AFTER he has freed the kids and is halfway through helping them escape. The whole point of the Christian aspect of the film is that good deeds, while a great thing to do, do NOT save you, Jesus does.

Fantastic

What a storyteller David West is.

2 Chron 7:13-14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

I'm kind of at a loss for words

so just 'upvoted'.

I have to go and

Cant watch it all but from what ive seen you've got some great actors and this drags me in. awesome vid mate

Calling out zionism is a good thing, politics using prejudices

of good christians to coerce govt into genocide.

It is the epicenter of the battle between the jewish ottoman elders and secular democratic republicans beholding to their christian principles and constitutions

The aim wasn't really to call

The aim wasn't really to call out Zionism. Any seeming allusions to Judaism stem from the fact that the movie was based around an old-testament verse assigned to me as part of the Christian film competition I was entering. It's really neo-Conservative Christianity that I'm calling out.

Well, for starters it was made for a Christian film making competition. And I'm not really sure I'd call it a, "reference," its kind of half the point of the film and its pretty present throughout the entire thing. But I'm really glad you enjoyed it!

This Film Should be a pemanent sticky!

Mod's. This is Powerful and absolutely correct. It should remain front page, forever.

Wow.

Thank you very much ... I'm gonna watch this again.

I'd rather be a hungry patriot than a satisfied slave.

You should have submitted this to the INFOWARS contest!!

It was THAT awesome and THAT professional and THAT fantastic!

It scares me how real it could be some day...

I would have, but

I would have, but unfortunately it was over by the time the competition I made this film for rolled around. I entered it in a million dollar film competition but we didn't make it on to the festival. Which is frustrating because I'm at the festival now and most of the films I've seen so far are AWFUL. I definitely think we got axed for politics.

"LIBERATION" movie

David Kirk West, Wolf Brothers Entertainment, & Buck The System has produced another outstanding short film in this riveting piece of original work. Thumbs up, and worth watching again.

RAH! Rogue Valley Rebels!

A beatiful, epic, poetic precautionary fable. I'm disinclined toward the christian elements (in continuo, I am ready to chalk up Josh's appearances as trauma driven hallucinations) of the film, but otherwise found it to be well worth the time. Thanks for sharing.
