The War on DemocracySubmitted by 13 on Sun, 02/17/2008 - 03:00
I found this film to be an interesting look at Amerikas role in the world. How the "empire".... umm "helps" Democracy flourish. I'm really beginning to wonder if anything from American media or even in history classes is to be believed. My only question is .... When are WE comming down from the hillside!
>>>>Description: Award winning journalist John Pilger examines the role of Washington in America's manipulation of Latin American politics during the last 50 years leading up to the struggle by ordinary people to free themselves from poverty and racism. Since the mid 19th Century Latin America has been the 'backyard' of the US, a collection of mostly vassal states whose compliant and often brutal regimes have reinforced the 'invisibility' of their majority peoples. The film reveals similar CIA policies to be continuing in Iraq, Iran and Lebanon. The rise of Venezuela's Hugo Chavez despite ongoing Washington backed efforts to unseat him in spite of his overwhelming mass popularity, is democratic in a way that we have forgotten or abandoned in the west. True Democracy being a solid 80% voter turnout in support of Chavez in over 6 elections. <<<<
