Wow, I JUST watched this last night and was gonna post a thread here if no one else had. It might have been the best documentary I've seen as far as
covering such a wide range of things.....tetrahedrons, federal reserve, false-flag terrorism, tesla, love not fear..........Hey all, exactly what is
this alleged "agenda" you're b1tching about? Instead of, "this film makes some good points, but it has an agenda!"........."A lot of the people
interviewed are pissed because this movie has an agenda!!!" ELABORATE for crying out loud. I thought it was great and yeah....I swear I was just
about to start a thread on this too!
I watched this months ago, and had a similar attitude, show everyone, talk about it, best thing ever, etc.
And, if it weren't for the huge glaring lies in it, then it would probably be the best thing ever. But,
and websites like it prove otherwise
"Yesterday, nine of the people interviewed in Thrive—John Robbins, Deepak Chopra, Paul Hawken, Elisabet Sahtouris, Duane Elgin, Vandana Shiva,
Edgar Mitchell, Amy Goodman and John Perkins—issued a public statement denouncing the film and stressing their profound disagreement with it. "
“We are a group of people who were interviewed for and appear in the movie Thrive, and who hereby publicly disassociate ourselves from the film.
Thrive is a very different film from what we were led to expect when we agreed to be interviewed. We are dismayed that we were not given a chance
to know its content until the time of its public release. We are equally dismayed that our participation is being used to give credibility to ideas
and agendas that we see as dangerously misguided.
We stand by what each of us said when we were interviewed. But we have grave disagreements with some of the film’s content and feel the need to
make this public statement to avoid the appearance that our presence in the film constitutes any kind of endorsement.

And it goes on.
Point being, there is truth in there, and yes it is a good message. But doing the wrong thing (like manipulating an interview to suit your needs) is
still wrong, even if you do it for "good" reasons.
Mind you, I'm all about the topics discussed in the movie. What I'm not about is the way it was portrayed to the participants only to be spun into
