Now if only the mind numb zombies who make up the electorate in this country would learn this video by heart and apply it in their daily lives we could get the country back on track.

Yeah!!!! Thats what the world needs... more people to quote political crap or the koarn or the bible verbatim... without know what they actually mean or caring... But YAY!!!! The republic needs mindless drones!!!!!!

That should be shown in every history/social studies class in every public school. Great video!!! I believe however it is too late to save the republic of the United States of America. It is already far down that road to an Oligarchy

A pretty good video, but there are some glaring errors.

Communism is supposed to be a society without a government, where people come together voluntarily to share in the exchange of goods.

A republic is a form of a democracy. The U.S. is not a true democracy or a true republic. The U.S. is not ran by a Prime Minister, it is headed by a popularly elected president. Jefferson called our nation a democratic republic.

Hitler did not take over Germany after Germany became an anarchy. That is not how it happened. Neither was Ceasars rise to power in Rome historically correct. There are clear discrepancies here.

What makes the U.S. government successful is a balance of powers. When the balance of power is thrown off, that is when our country is in the most danger. Ike had is right, beware of the rise of the military industrial complex. Ceasar was a general.

Your avatar transports me back to the early 60's. When I read your posts Popeye's voice is in my head for every word. I can't stop cracking up. Geez...people around me see me laughing and they think I am losing it. Anyhow, I love everything you have written so far. Another star for ya and I added you to my friends list.

Great video.

Is that John Voight narrating?

I wouldn't have thought about it unless you had mentioned the narration, but it sounds like Christopher Walken to me. Just a guess though.

Edit: John McManus is apparently the narrator.

I just finished watching the full series that spec_ops_wannabe posted on the previous page. I thought everything was really well put together except for the second half of the last (fourth) video when he begins to talk about morality and religion. It seems they are implying that morality is not possible without religion. I totally disagree with that.

Also, while they are talking about how American's are becoming immoral, they show a short clip of someone hitting a bong. I would also disagree with the implication that smoking marijuana is somehow immoral. Same goes for gambling - all things in moderation.

Something that video really goes out it's way to say about Anarchy

Anarchists are those who advocate the absence of the state, arguing that common sense would allow for people to come together in agreement to form a functional society allowing for the participants to freely develop their own sense of morality, ethics or principled behaviour. The rise of anarchism as a philosophical movement occurred in the mid 19th century, with its idea of freedom as being based upon political and economic self-rule. This occurred alongside the rise of the nation-state and large-scale industrial capitalism, and the corruption that came with their successes.
Although anarchists share a rejection of the state, they differ about economic arrangements and possible rules that would prevail in a stateless society, ranging from complete common ownership and distribution according to need, to supporters of private property and free market competition. For example, most forms of anarchism, such as that of anarcho-communism, anarcho-syndicalism, or anarcho-primitivism not only seek rejection of the state, but also other systems which they perceive as authoritarian, which includes capitalism, wage labor, and private property. In opposition, a political philosophy known as anarcho-capitalism argues that a society without a state is a free market capitalist system that is voluntarist in nature.
The word "anarchy" is often used by non-anarchists as a pejorative term, intended to connote a lack of control and a negatively chaotic environment. Because of this, some activists have self-identified as libertarian socialists. In more recent times anti-authoritarian has offered another similar self-identification. However, anarchists still argue that anarchy does not imply nihilism, anomie, or the total absence of rules, but rather an anti-authoritarian society that is based on the spontaneous order of free individuals in autonomous communities, operating on principles of mutual aid, voluntary association, and direct action.

Thanks for this... Now I don't have to type an elaborate post because that is just what I wanted to say: Government does not exist in nature; And if we were not artificially set up with this control force that is doing more harm than good, & if complete tyranny, death & destruction with Wars are an inevitability with Government, then it SHOULD NOT BE. - Now, because we have been conditioned to be selfish & disconnected with the natural wonders of nature & the universe with the imposition of entertainment & the suppression of substances that make you question, have compassionate world views, we are stuck with an INDUCED dependance on government.

Until we change ourselves and the way we think, we will never be able to prove to the majority that we could NATURALLY work things out on a collective level. - Animals do not have a government of their own, although they are victims & susceptible to the horrors that governments impose in events such as environmental degradation & the abuse by corporations as seen in the film: Earthlings. I have an anarchy sign tattooed on myself... From my wild teenage years, & I don't regret it, despite the fact that it's a little large.

Obama + last elitist presidents meeting = Oligarchy. I guess when in Rome, leave it to the elite, and let them live it up. Mass layoffs = decreased productivity. I think the technology age gave us freedom to share ideas openly but in a depression it will give all the elitists the power. What I mean by that is all of the ideas that we carelessly throw to the net will be put to use. However we will not see a dime of the profits. They will cut our internet connections and only the elite will have the privilege. They will dig through every bit of info, if they don't already. Soon the time of wonders will cease and our discussions along with it. It was nice to finally see so many like minded individuals. Here is to you, here is to me, the time we shared was something to see. with a wave of me hand and a tip of the hat now that it's over, I hope you die fat. (which actually means I hope you lead a good life and are well at the end. In the good old days it was a sign of health to have some gerth. It meant you ate well) Now had I said I hope you die with boils all over your body 1.) It wouldn't have rhymed. And 2.) I would have been an ass!!!! Well my time is up, and Cheney is at the door asking me if I want to go hunting!! Later comrades

Uh yeah, this video does a great job of pigeon-holing politics and painting a short sweet picture of what 1 person's biased opinion on the matter is. The fact of the matter is that there is a whole lot more information to take into account that this person is leading you to believe. In fact, most all the information here isn't really information but a biased view-point giving you only part of the truth and leaving a whole wealth of information out that doesn't help their view point. In fact, it would be just as easy to make a propaganda video that states the exact opposite of what this person preaches to the same effect and is just as convincing. The fact that so many of you buy into this so much and it resonates with you so well just because it is "easy to understand" is scary in that it shows how easy it is to influence the majority of the public with spoon-fed BS propaganda. Do the real research people. Do the research in credible places, not 8 minute videos! NOTHING IS EVER THAT SIMPLE! If more people were enlightened enough to really seek the truth on their own merits thats what would make this world a much better place!
