After viewing the video, and reading the vast majority of comments, my original position of how I percieved the video changed somewhat.
Let me explain, First thoughts were definately that it was informative and touched on some sensitive global issues, with what I sensed were some credible accounts to back up the narrators statements.
reading some of the comments I began to feel as though people thought of the person having alterior motives, I did not view it in that same light, the underlying theme I picked up on throughout the movie was for us to use the initiative of our own abilities to seek out the truth for ourselves, his perception is as flawed as anyone elses might be, just as we are all entitled to our individual opinions.
So you are really a victim of Groupthink which is one of the most important points of the film for me. You initially thought the film was informative and credible but were simply swayed by other peoples opinions rather than your own personal beliefs.

I am not sure which one is which though.
I hope that I am not against God.
It may yet apply as far as maritime law goes, but here in the states, you are not owned by the US government because of capital letters. You do have to pay taxes if you have income.
Having looked into one small piece of the video and found it to be at the very least, misleading, you have to wonder if any of it is true at all, or if they made it for fun, or for disinfo.
