Happy 4th everyone. Hopefully you’re kicking back with family and enjoying the long weekend, I know I am. On this day when America declared it’s independence, I thought it’d be an interesting idea to start a weekly posting on some eye opening films i’ve come across the last couple of years. By nature, I’ve always been skeptical of “tradition” because i’ve always had the inclination that their was something more than met the eye. It was not until my senior year in high school when the 9/11 attacks happened that I really started to investigate this deep seated ideal. After watching Michael Moore’s film Fahrenheit 9/11, which ONLY touches the surface of the events, I had a lot of nagging questions about the attacks and not enough answers. I started to research more into the oddities of that day and came across the Loose Change films which opened up a whole other can of worms. Soon, I was engrossed in material about secret societies, religion, government, health, nutrition, and this list continues to grow.
We live in a time of so much media saturation and pop-culture consumerism that the majority of us either fall in line with what we’re told or get so caught up in the daily hustle that we barely stop to take a look around. We have accepted a blurry set of glasses sold to us by institutions that not only have dollars to gain, but agendas to fulfill. If you have the curiosity to search and the art to keep an open mind, you will find information that will shake the very foundations of your most accepted beliefs. This is why many people deny alternative information, because it’s too painful to let go of what you have spent your days believing and I understand this. Times are getting more dire though, especially since we just got out of an 8 year mess and are looking with hopeful eyes for real “change.”
If there was ever a time to research this information, it’s NOW, which is why I have decided to post these films. You can agree or disagree as I encourage ALL points of view but at least approach the film with an open mind. I’m not doing this to push my beliefs on you, I’m only concerned with getting this information out there to the disenfranchised who are searching for answers as I was. In fact, this may be counterproductive to my brand as it may turn some people away. But what the hell is more punk rock or gangster than questioning authority and the institutions that push it? 😮
Anyhow, all of the films I will post are free and easily viewable on Youtube or Google video. On this long weekend, instead of watching Lost re-runs or Jersey Shore mindlessness, pop this up and learn something new.
The film I want to post this week is called America: From Freedom To Fascism. Now, I understand that it’s a harsh title but again, please keep an open mind. The film is pretty much in 3 parts (the Federal Reserve, the 9/11 attacks and an overall piecing together of a larger societal puzzle) but mainly focuses on the income tax scheme and how this really kick started our current mess. With this film being made back in 2006, i’m sure you will be able to come to the conclusion that much of what’s included in it, has come to pass. Before you watch the film I want you to keep this question in mind. Are we really required to pay an income tax and what exactly is it for? Check it out by clicking the below image:
