The accidental documentary, Superpower, won the overall festival award, The Director's Selection Award, in the Twin Cities Arts Festival in
Kernersville, North Carolina in 2008, as well as a string of other awards.
This documentary just screened on our tv and I watched it with my eyes nearly popping out at the exposure of what is really going on behind the vailed
curtain of American politics and military, the intent to establish itself as the superpower in a New World Order.
It also exposes the goal of convincing the American population to give up their freedom in exchange for 'security'. (Remeber the Benjamin Franklin
quote: "Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.")
Well, this outstanding documentary explains how the US is doing exactly that: convincing people to give up their freedom in order to create a
military state under the guise of providing you with security.
That this was screened, is an action of exremely high risk on the part of the filmmakers and how this happened, God only knows. (In my view,
litereally, because it is only through blessings like these that we get glimpses into our aplorable state of reality.)
I very strongly commend every American to watch this movie. Unfortunately no link exsists to the full movie, but it is on sale at the link
I have found a 3 part extract from the movie:
I hereby quote from the site www.superpowerthemovie.com...
Superpower is a well-executed and comprehensive film that asks tough questions and goes behind the scenes of America’s national security apparatus
and military actions. Far from a conspiracy film about the dangers of government secrets and regime change, this well-balanced film straddles the
philosophical divide and allows viewers to understand the US quest for global dominance through economic and military strategy that is exposed through
review of historical events, personal interviews, and analysis of US foreign policy.
The heart of Superpower lies in the analysis produced from a re-examination of history through a series of interviews with historians, documentarians,
and academians such as Bill Blum, Chalmers Johnson, Michael Chossudovsky, and Noam Chomsky, and others with expertise in this subject such as the
Executive Producer of The Unit, Command Sergeant (Ret.) Eric Haney; former Chief Economist for the US Department of Labor, Morgan Reynolds; three-time
Noble Peace Prize nominee, Kathy Kelly; and Lt. Col. (Ret) Karen Kwiatkowski. Examining key moments in America's history elicits a more consistent and
plausible set of motives for US foreign policy actions guided by global expansion and military dominance, rather than the hyperbolic calls for
democracy and totalitarian regime change that we have become so accustomed to hearing.
Should citizens trust that their government will keep them safe, a government that keeps secrets, and lies, in the name of national security? Does the
simple act of withholding information lead to a world of eroding civil liberties and corruption? Superpower presents a view of US foreign policy,
which lies in stark contrast to that depicted by corporate media, popular pundits, and US heads of state. With the fall of the Soviet Union, the US
has emerged as the preeminent superpower of the world. Superpower illustrates how the United States has chosen to leverage that position to pursue a
grand strategy which will ensure itself unilateral world domination through absolute economic and military superiority. It shows a consistent pattern
of government deception.
The United States emerged from World War II with its industrial base still intact and the only nation with the atomic bomb. It was without question
the most powerful country on earth. What was done with this unprecedented power, the effects it's had on our Republic and the rest of the world is the
story of Superpower.
Sink your teeth into that!
