Not sure if this is the right forum for this post, relocate it if you wish. But the author of the video does an excellent job of tying everything together.

The only thing that we have to fear is fear itself - Franklin D. Roosevelt

America's loss of freedom.

Ok, I got it work. Mmm, lotsa dsinifo mixed in with some good commentary. my father-in-law used to teach religious studies at UT knoxville and one of his complaints was that faculty there was socialist and atheistic.
First of all the Inquistiion (of which there were several distinct episodes) did not claim more victims than Hitler or Stalin. Not by a long shot. the inquistion may have claimed at most a few hundred thousand. His claims that the catholic church was a fascist institution is also false. Fascism is a form that only came into existence after the industrial revolution and the rise of corporations (which came into being thanks to the protestant reformation). Similarly, religious fundamentalism is also a cancerous outgrowth of the reformation. I'm not defending the catholic church, nor attacking protestantism. Each has their faults.
The video also claims the US Constitution is a copy of the Dutch version. A majority of our constitution comes from Iroqouis society through Benjamin Franklin as our ambassador to the league of nations.
this video is one more attempt at religious apologism to state that all freedom is somehow derived from the protestant reformation. Humbug! mankind was free before printing presses arrived. Unfortunately, there is no written history to record just how free men were when they lived in simple tribal units. Freedom is something we seem to incresingly lose with every new piece of technology that comes along. We can delude ourselves ad nauseum about how tech or religion can set us free but we were born free and increasinlgy lose it bit by bit the more we sell our time and lives into a system that holds monetary exchange as the bottom line of success.
