Blackfish was a good CNN documentary, it took a compassionate view of these deep sea mammals.
Gupta's work on medical marijuana, and the role it played for children with seizure disorders was also good.
More recently, the documentary on Ayahuasca with Lisa Ling, documenting the healing effect on veterans with PTSD was really high quality television.
But you know the best thing CNN has put on the air? Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin, on new years. She exposes him as a Vanderbilt, and then she
proceeds to go down on him below the view of the camera, while Anderson Cooper freaks out: This is all on camera!
"This is all on camera" is the general state of the American populous in the current NSA surveillance state and its the thing one CNN we most relate
to. Everything we do. How do we react? How do we behave?
For most of us, we construct a mask. We stop being ourselves. We put pretty pictures of ourselves up on Facebook, with out happy lives. We even live
masked lives in our home lest the cameras be there too. This offers absolutely nothing to anyone, that's why we do it: A form of war against the
surveillance. But at the cost of our authentic being.
I don't mean to derail your thread, the secrecy documented in Blackfish is a good example of the problem with the world. But I think the solution is
that we really need to learn to be our authentic selves, regardless of who is watching. We need to think of ourselves, and our perceptions, as holy -
come what may, and put them out there. I think if we all did this, a lot of corruption would be shut down overnight. Peace!
