That has got to be one of the worst of that sort of video that I have ever seen. Viewed once (and don't need more), and got a lot of points from it,
but not generally in agreement with what they are trying to push. I'll list these as they came:
1. They assume that most people trust the government, when the fact is, most people might, maybe, trust the ones they voted for, and almost never the
other side. Are people easily lead? Sadly, too many are, but not the way they lay it out.
2. They take the position that large companies are a bad thing, when in fact, a properly-run company provides needed jobs. No, everyone doesn't get
rich, but whoever said everyone should be?
3. They take the position that the government hasn't had enough control of businesses. Gee, I though we wanted less government control, not more.
All this time, I must have been confused.....*insert eye roll here*
4. They use that old standard anti-religious tactic of stating all religions are controlled by governments, to control the people. Simply not true,
and getting to be a rather old and moldy argument.
5. A very obvious anti-Bush and anti-Conservative bias runs through the whole piece. They try to cover this by blaming Democrats (at least for
supposed inaction in failing to stop the "evil Republicans", but they never once mention the current administration. Oversight? Hardly; the bias
could not be more clear.
6. The got one thing right; bias combined with ignorance can and will cause the fall of a nation. However, they failed to mention the most obvious
ways this is being carried out. They even got the fear tactic part right, but failed to see the actual culprits. Disinformation at its finest.
7. The flat out deny that Islamic terrorists are a threat to freedom. Gee, the terrorists state that they are such a threat. They don't want
freedom; they want all to agree with them or die. But, hey, why should facts get in the way at this point in the video?
8. They assume that FDR (a Democrat) knowing about Pearl Harbor beforehand (a fact I won't dispute) is somehow proof that Bush knew about 9/11
beforehand. They utterly fail at logical argument.
9. The people they call "post 9/11 terrorists" were labeled as such by Obama and his people, but they somehow fail to mention his name at all when
discussing that issue. Another accidental omission?
10. They talk about the so-called "security/concentration camps", which no one seems to be able to prove, or get picture of, and which people in
the areas where they supposedly are seem unable to locate. Can't help but chuckle at this, after that recent post on one such "camp".
11. They got another thing right, sort of. They mention mandatory service, but once again fail to mention that it's Obama and company that want such
a thing implemented. At this point, one has to wonder what the real purpose of this video is, and who is actually behind it.
12. They make statements that all the wars in the Middle East were "pre-planned", but offer zero evidence, and not even a reference, for proof of
such an outlandish claim.
13. They talk about the government keeping a database of all calls, all internet posts, etc. Can we be serious here??? ALL calls, ALL internet
activity? There aren't enough people to keep track, and no one would waste the computer space for that. Something like Carnivore? Sure, looking
for key words and phrases, and recording those instances for review. That is feasible, but ALL the data? Someone isn't thinking.
14. They mention "the Fed" planning a takeover of the internet, and yet again (four times now...), they fail to mention that Obama is the one
talking about doing that.
15. They talk about a "DNA bank", even though most people have never donated a sample of DNA for archiving. Yeah, yeah, I know, "the doctors do it
when you go in sick". Give me a break. Is it possible when they take a blood sample? Sure, but that would hardly count most people. Again, no
evidence, no reference to anything as proof, just another statement they expect us to swallow whole. If we don't, we must be biased, of
course...*insert another eye roll*
16. They speak of taxing cars per mile as though that would be to "fight terrorism", when in reality, the people proposing that are the
environmentalists, trying to scare people with tall tales of "global warming".
17. They talk about a military computer system as though that is somehow an evil thing, and not one of practicality. Gee, I guess in their world, the
military should still use swords and shields.
18. Then they go off the deep end entirely, and discuss nanotechnology as though we will all soon be.....the BORG!
19. Next, they label a vast, global tech system as "god", a ploy meant to scare people, but in reality, yet another jab at religious beliefs.
20. After this, they display an appalling lack of any real knowledge in matters of religious belief, by calling mandatory implants "the mark of the
beast", completely overlooking the fact that this is something people would take voluntarily.
21. Last, but not least, they show their lack of original thought by telling us we will all soon be living in "The Matrix".
There are possibly a few things I missed, but that's the bulk of it. Was there supposed to be something informative there? Maybe my "bias" is
preventing me from seeing it.
In fact, my ability to not be taken in by all the images and sounds and carefully woven lies is exactly the sort
of thing they pretend to want, but which would in reality tick them off. We are supposed to buy the lie. They went to such trouble to put all those
manipulative images in there, and choose just the right music to draw people in. Sadly, it will work for a lot of people.
