The Greatest Truth Never Told

The Greatest Truth Never Told is a video series that has been 7 years in research and development.

It is centered around the truth that humanity has been enslaved over and over again throughout history.

The Greatest Truth Never Told lays out the case for even the most cynical and indoctrinated individual.

The paradigm which we operate under is mathematically going to end. The end of the world as we know it does not mean it is the end of the world.

The way of life we are currently leading is pulling humanity down and should be shown the door. We cannot change the world to make our self happy or free.

We must change our self to make the world happy and free. The awakening process is a very hard road for those with no guidance. All of the problems we face in the world start and stop within our consciousness.

When you realize that you have this power, nothing can stop this change. Humanity has the ability to truly free themselves once and for all.

    As soon as he said america was the last becon of hope... I thought naaah.. bull****

  • Blackhand

    Four hours? There may be some interesting ideas, but it's basically a low production slide show. I did make it through the first minutes and skipped through......

  • http://www.facebook.com/Mistaron Ron Henry Galea

    I made it to about 10 mins. How the heck can you take in what he's trying to say when the screen persistently goes to blackout? It was like being distracted and hypnotized at the same time! Not impressed.

  • Nwttp

    Yea... One minute in and already not even close to true. The comments on this website alone should tell you not everyone desires freedom. Look up some comments by waldo and tell me that man doesn't want someone running his life. My only guess is, some people must think it easier to have someone else run their life.

    After watching more, other than a few statements assuming everyone is smart enough to think for themselves, it's quite a logical doc.

  • http://twitter.com/danvasingh danva singh

    watched the first 5 mins and its soooo boring how can anyone watch the whole things its 4 hours of boring junk

  • Earthwinger

    @ Michaell Svendsen - It's such an overused acronym, but I genuinely did "LOL" at that line in the film. :D

    I didn't watch the whole film, but I gave it my best shot and stuck with it for about 40 minutes or so. What I saw just seemed like a badly edited rehash of points that have been made countless times before, by other film makers, often with a lot more style.

    And I say "badly edited" because the audio track was up and down more than a brides nightie.

  • bringmeredwine

    Okay, OKAY!
    I made it till the last 30 minutes, then I couldn't take it any more!
    I get it, I get it!

    Chris Duane is great guy. People need to bear in mind that this compilation is quite old now, and his latest work is a lot more polished. I also felt that some early parts of this project of his could use better edited so I edited it for him myself, he later uploaded it to his channel. One of the videos I edited for him is called 'Freedom is Slavery'. That's the kind of guy he is. I think some of the guys here have under estimated the the value of what Chris is trying to do, he of all people deserves our attention.

    I recommend people look for his most popular videos on YouTube such as 'Identifying different psychopaths', 'Delete Facebook' or one of his more up to-date videos like 'The Crossroads of Humanity' it's a lot better than judging the mans work based only of the first 30-40 minutes of this huge compilation. His channel is a valuable resource for those who love philosophy and independent thinking.

  • truestory2012

    He lost a brother when he kept talking about how our "founding fathers" were all about freedom and the pursuit of happiness... Ahhh life on the plantation and the reservation! I'll pass!

    Original ideas, 0.

    Quit at 4:41. Just mumbling about some new age hippie crap.

  • Earthwinger

    I don't doubt that Chris Duane is a great guy, but here's the deal – a film gets posted and it gets critiqued, and then either stands up to scrutiny, or fails to do so, on it's own merits. That's just the way it goes.

    Had I not seen this film first, I may have been inclined to explore his other body of work. Maybe I still will one day, if it's raining and I've nothing better to do. To be honest though, his comment about the USA being the world's last hope of salvation, and his curiously misty-eyed view of the past, leaves me feeling less inclined to do so.

    Lets face it, one can hardly browse Youtube without tripping over a whole mess of these sorts of films, and quite frankly, all that navel gazing, personal growth as a means to changing the world, stuff that Mr Duane espouses here, is all getting a bit old. It feels to me, like one of those Chakotay-centric episode of ST Voyager, and that was never a good thing. ;)

    There are people already out there, changing their own lives, and the wider world, for the better, and their ranks are swelling daily. It's not being achieved by making documentaries like this though. It requires getting stuck in, collectively, through organizations like the Transitions Initiative, and similar types of co-operatives, and physically creating the change we so desperately need.

  • iStateOfMind3 iii

    Understood. Though coming from Northern Ireland I am kind of envious of the American Constitution, must be nice to have a bill of rights (hehe), in that respect the US is a beacon of hope - in fact many of my fellow Irishmen emigrated there in the past. In today's world the US is a very different country than what was envisioned by its founders, we can all accept that.

  • wald0

    Sure, the bill of rights was a great idea, so was a constitutional republic But, the second any of these ideals become cumbersome to our sense of safety, they go out the window. And we, the citizens, let them go out the window because we are scared. If our right to privacy somehow threatens our national security, or at least they convince us it does in some way, we just abandon it. Free speech is allowing too much hate speech which is inspiring horrible acts, well just abandon the concept of free speech altogether then.This is how the controlling elite have systematically dismantled individual rights in this country, and they are still at it. Americans have forgotten that freedom isn't free, it costs fear, hard work, and even lives. If we are not willing to pay the price of true freedom any longer we will not have it any longer- it's as simple as that. We are trading our rights off for a safe, predictable, future of enslavement when in reality the fear they are using to accomplish this is manufactured, not real nor justified. But, lets say it wasn't, that it was very real, at what point do we say, "Enough is enough, I would rather die with my rights intact, having stood for what I believe is right, than live subservient to some ideal of safety on my knees, broken!"
    Don't be so envious, its all just a show, nothing more. Maybe at some time being an American meant having true freedom and security from tyranny but, not any longer. Our government does horrible things here everyday and it is only getting worse. Religion is seeping into our politics and educational system, something you are probably familiar with if you live in Ireland. People are leaving here for Europe, France and the Netherlands mostly. I would follow if I could.

  • Simon Gramstrup

    Pheew.. nanoreview:
    We all see this from a different angel.
    While I really hate this kind of presentation (talking to a stream of strange arty clips) I'm impressed by the work he has put in and the worldview is brilliant, but told in an imho 'non-coherent' way.

    It's a huge subject, and errors do slip in, but a lot of it is true, and matches the latest research in neuro- and cognitive sciences. I believe this "what the hell are we doing?" or "we are cattle on a farm" worldview is getting more and more common.

    I would like to see a shorter presentation of this material with a better visual overview. Only see this if you like to think about big stuff and are able to reflect - and able to keep focus.

  • iStateOfMind3 iii

    Chris also put together a series of modules (about 5 in all) he called 'The Sons of Liberty Academy'. It consists of 10 videos per module, with an overall improvement on how the information is structured. You could always check that out.

  • iStateOfMind3 iii

    Don't despair, that facade is being chipped away at on a daily basis. I've seen the change in consciousness happening in places I had never expected, and it's being refereed to as such. The new President of the EU (and Irish prime Minister) in his first address would be an example of that. I see historical injustices being addressed (look up the latest statement from the Church of Scotland), the latest statements from the UN concerning the treatment of the Palestinians, google changing the Palestinian homepage from 'Palestinian Territories' to simply Palestine. Now we all may have differing views on the Israeli/Palestine issue and even on the EU or UN, but at last we are finally able to have the discussion on a global level. That is real hope that we ourselves created; They have finally realized they are slowly becoming irrelevant maybe? They see the massive political awaking that has taken place since the advent of the internet and know they will be swept away in this tide of independent thinking. When they can't change the path the world is on they position themselves for the inevitable outcome. The last place we will see this change of consciousness is within the mainstream media, it really is 'the most awesome Goddamn weapon in the whole Godless world' the guy from the film network described all those years ago. I would go as far as to say that all the divisiveness in American society today emanated from the MSM. The good news is - ratings are at rock-bottom : ]
    Hang in there my friend!

  • W_Dare

    It's nice that people are thinking and pushing boundaries. However, all things are relative. This is targetted very much at the 'ill educated' portion of American society. Consequently the 'boundaries' that are suggested be overcome are pretty obvious, and thus, to more advanced cultures, pretty minor, or irrelevent ones.

    I am thus trying to say the author is missing almost all of the mass of elephants in the room!

    I get the impression they genuinely think they've achieved 'insight'. However, the enlightenment the author/narrator thinks they've achieved is only a comparative and ralative enlightenment. I watched it and thought the narrator/author was still incredibly "small town centric" and thus not at all, by any stretch of the imagination, emotionally, or intellectually, "free".

    As evidence for this the irony was palpable when the author/narrator talked about 'being free' and went through Maslow's hierarchy of needs (@ c.11mins). I laughed that they were unable to mention sex, excretion, etc. The words were on the screen, (since they are as per Maslow's works), but the author/narrator was still so reppressed by their being immersed in their 'small town America' culture, (despite continually saying how 'free' their insight had made them!), that they could not say (or even 'see'?) them 'naughty' words! :D

    So, in summary: the author/narrator is evidently far, far, from being 'free' himself. All things are relative and so he may be very, very, enlightened for someone nurtured and educated in an unelightened/insular/poorly educated part of America; however, it is evident that they are far from being aware of their own follies and boindaries...and far, far, far from having any insight into any 'Global enlightenment'. They've a huge way to travel before they can begin to see where the actual boundaries to freedom are. I wish them luck!

  • Simon Gramstrup

    I found him on youtube. For the quick look I took - and this doc, it seems to me that the thought process or worldview he presents are similar to thoughts behind Trom, Athene, Peter Josephs 'Zeitgeist 1', and 'the venus project'.

    Do you know of other sources for these global systemic viewpoints?

    He is a bit 'unstructured' in this one, but he is tackling big issues, so I will check out your suggestions as soon as I can. thanks

  • Rocky Racoon

    A good grounding in Marxist Class Analysis would work wonders as well as exposing the contribution that organized labour communism socialism has made to societal progress in the WEST. The "middle class" became managers of labour and servants of capital betraying their class roots. These "professionals" will be the first one's ( behind the banksters) to run to the government for a job in the security state on the road to outright fascism. We are well on the way now. Perhaps the "developing world" will solve the riddle of class in society and we can supersede capitalism until we do no progress only regression is possible at this stage. All resources are suborned to the profit motive under capitalism, science, art everything must be commodified, that is an inhuman way to organize production and re-production.
    I hope this helps.

  • Rocky Racoon

    Learn how to play an instrument. A full grounding in music is as hard as any other degree one could acquire and it is something no government employer or anyone can ever take away from you. And once you get people to listen to you well then you can influence them if you don't end up commodified and sell out that is.

  • Imightberiding

    "The U.S. is the last beacon of hope throughout the world?" Is this guy for real? How incredibly narrow minded, misinformed, egotistical & full of inflated hubris is this guy? Clearly a proud American presenting his argument for the saving grace of the "Great State of America". This young man has obviously travelled very little in his short, inexperienced lifetime.

    Is this project something he is doing for a final grade in his short, sheltered life as a college student?

  • IndustryOfBlame

    Yea, those opening statements were really poorly placed, he probably alienated half of his potential subscribers in the first 5 minutes.

  • http://www.facebook.com/luedke.bill Bill Luedke

    There is nothing new age about this. This is objectivist reality. Anybody who doesn't see it that way is blind to the truth. The point of this is to get you to remove your blindfold and see the real problems we should be dealing with. Kudos!!

    What an ethnocentric, dumb American view! He lost me after 5 minutes of made-in the-USA cliches. I suggest that he learns critical thinking about his own county's history and "greatness" This is pure trash. I'm surprised to see it here.

  • iStateOfMind3 iii

    The product of the Zeitgeist philosophy would actually limit the potential of the species in the end, granted it raised the awareness levels of the average person. We would all be living our lives to serve a collective, much like we do now, which doesn't really leave much room for self empowerment or 'walking your own path in life' as Chris would put it. For global perspectives I tend to listen to guys like Chris Hedges, Chomsky, Robert Fisk and John Pilger. Between those mean is an invaluable wealth of knowledge about a part of the world that has been purposely hidden, distorted and outright demonized by our leaders and media outlets. When people really start to do their homework on whats been going on in Latin America and other parts of the third world the pattern becomes all to familiar. A lot of that same knowledge is reflected in Chris Duane work, from the perspective of a REAL patriotic American (which I see people misinterpret as ignorance for some reason). Anyway, people are realizing that we (the West) have been involved in perpetual war since the end of WW2 and the thirst for information is growing, imho that's all it takes to change the situation - A massive change in consciousness. It's happening already too : ]

  • Simon Gramstrup

    I sense the change too. For now I see TZM or TVP as the pinnacle of human organization, but that may change in the future. We will see where we end up :) I will take a look at the views of the suggested people that I didnt know. Thanks

  • joe

    you believe you can critique an almost 5 hour documentary by the first 5 minute monologue? That is pure trash.

  • joe

    mozart wrote his first composition at the age of 5. my guess is he hadn't traveled much. did you watch the documentary? Do you have any actual critique of the material that would help other viewers or are you just here to demonstrate your undeveloped psuedo-intellectual snarky prose?

  • joe

    ^^^^ best review. thanks. you didn't even have to speculate on how much he has traveled or how big the town he grew up in was. bravo.

  • joe

    then you are going to have to pass on the first hundred years of american history and thousands of years of western history. Great way to stay enslaved.

    3 1/2 hours until he drops the "hook". it's a paultard goldbug. "abandon the cities, buy gold" if you buy this, you're an i*iot

  • iStateOfMind3 iii

    What is money if the dollar collapses? Have to tried to buy physical gold lately? If you have not, then its too late. People that have had physical gold resting in banks worldwide are having difficulty getting it back. Many historical texts Koran, Bible etc etc) warned of us of the money changers. Fiat currencies can be depreciated by increasing the supply in existence, kind of what some countries are doing right now to stay competitive in the export market. That way everyone with savings loses a portion of their wealth. Holding metals like Gold, silver and even nickel are the only prudent method of insuring you can provide for yourself and your family in the next paradigm, whatever that may bring. I'll take my wealth in gold dinar over the dollar, pound or euro any day of the week. The collapse of the dollar is a mathematically enviable fact, which is why the governments around the world are quietly buying up silver and gold. In one transaction recently 25% of the silver that had been mined in one year was purchased, who has that kind of money? I could go on for hours about the positives of silver alone, but in the end its up to you mull these things over.

  • http://www.facebook.com/harry.nutzack.1 Harry Nutzack

    what exactly is a "mathematically enviable fact"? parroting idiotic sales pitches make them no truer.

  • iStateOfMind3 iii

    I'm not sure where I lost you, with my spelling error or the fact that the collapse of the dollar is 'inevitable'. Idiotic would be thinking a person would spend 1000's of hours of his time researching and producing videos like this just to sell small amounts of gold/silver, I'm sure there has to be easier ways : ]

  • truestory2012

    Far from enslaved my friend... In fact I'm enlightened beyond explanation... I think and live as a Free Man not a Freed Man. The philosophy of the U.S founding fathers sounds great in theory, To slaves and native Americans it was unheard of...

  • http://www.facebook.com/harry.nutzack.1 Harry Nutzack

    there are hundreds of millions of dollars made daily by "playing" the volatility of PMs (a "game" reserved only for the incredibly wealthy, as they alone have the ability to engage in such rapid fire trading in the volume required to exploit it). those annual billions do not exist without the pigeons that buy into these goldbug sales pitches. are you feigning ignorance, or just entirely clueless?? your fearful purchases "for your families security" are actually just lining the pockets of those self same "money masters" who you think you hedge against. "dumping" a huge volume by the "heavy hitters" would easily destroy your "security for your family". holding a game piece can not possibly "protect you from the game". the most useful pawn is the one you have convinced that he is a rook

  • Divine Frequency

    "Holding metals like Gold, silver and even nickel are the only prudent
    method of insuring you can provide for yourself and your family in the
    next paradigm, whatever that may bring." This sentence just kinda says you haven't thought this through very well, you dont know whats around the corner, yet you're convinced that precious metals will provide for you. They can provide for you right now sure but they're not really worth anything either, unless someone says they are. The most valuable things on the planet are the planet itself, life human or otherwise, and the means to sustain that life and evolve to our highest potential. That's what this game has helped us all to forget. When your family is hungry and thirsty you'll need to find someone who thinks precious metals is worth more than food and water, but if all anyone wants is food and water...think it through

  • Divine Frequency

    Nice!

  • iStateOfMind3 iii

    When the Roman empire withdrew from Britain people melted down the silver from Roman coins into a bar which they chipped off piece's to pay for whatever they pleased. So in the worst case scenario it acts as currency. The price of silver has been kept artificially low ($30-$35 an ounce) for some time now, you can look into that online for yourself. That is why I mention it as an example of how to beat the game that's been played against us by people who manipulate the currency. As Alan Greenspan said once that the US can take on as much debt as it likes because they can always print up the money to cover it, then he goes on to say he can't ensure the purchasing power of the currency in the future though. If you know a better way to make sure you aren't conned out of your wealth I'd love to hear it.

  • Rob

    Awesome work...teaching kids critical thinking as opposed to the memorization of useless crap dedicated to you furthering a consumer driven society is honestly the most critical step in changing the collective. Imagine what the World could be like if we had an entire generation of problem solving INDIVIDUALS as opposed to machines. Make it happen!

  • Marina

    Narcissism was one of the points discussed. The fact that this comment wasn't commented on shows that nobody bothered to read it, given the fact that it is such impentetrable self-satisfied academic codswollop. What is the point in making very complex situations even more obtuse? Is it just because you want to look smart? The first step to attaining a life of quality is to prize simplicit.

  • Marina

    Narcissism was one of the points discussed. The fact that this comment wasn't commented on is that nobody can be bothered to read this impenetrable twaddle: The first step to a life of quality is to prioritise speaking plain English, and not waving your dick/vagina, in order to impress mentally stultified English Department charlatan sophists. .

  • runnysplack

    Monetary systems work perfectly fine if the currency used is left to market devices instead of government regulation. We create the means through which all sociopathic creatures can control every aspect of every individuals life in a parasitic entity known as the state. The real problem isn't simply a means of exchanging goods (which is what all money is) the real problem is in the power disparity created through government. All governments throughout history have had one goal in mind and that is to increase this power disparity.

    I've re-read my posting and see nothing wrong with it. It's written in the same style as my speech. Rather than simply pose Ad Hominem arguments please could you spare the time to point out my mistakes?

Should I have left it at that?

    "aren't conned out of your wealth" implies you think a system will be in place that allows people to "possess" things. what if people just grow food and share instead of hoarding to accumulate "wealth"

    I see many comments here saying "...nothing new etc" well it's may be nothing new for you and me but there are many people out there who don't even know what's going in this world. they are locked up to their tv set and being brainwashed and injected with what the elite want them to know, to be, to eat, or to wear etc. So, if we are lucky, these folks will wake up. That's the intention of this doc.

  • Bad Conduct

    I've watched 3 or 4, 3 to 4 hour, documentaries, and all the information in this one comes directly from those. Copy/Paste/Publish. The formula for modern day journalism.

  • Bad Conduct

    *clap clap clap* I get it. The world's corrupt, we're all slaves, aliens are coming, the worlds ending, the economy is failing, everyone's plotting to take over the world. Better warship some new god or go back to the gold standard.
    I get it. Are these people really going to make the world a better place? Capitalism, Communism, Feudalism, Zietgiest...

    It's all Coke and Pepsi to me. Give anyone power and they'll take advantage of it.

  • Bad Conduct

    It's like when I take my blindfold off, there is a person is front of me.
    "So?" He will ask, "was it Coke or Pepsi?"
    And no matter which one I preferred, or even I just lied to his face, I get the same answer from him.
    It's called "The Pepsi Challenge", after all.
    It doesn't matter how we change the system, we always end up with winners and losers. You can leave the blindfold on, or take it off. You live your life the same either way, and the people in power stay in power either way. Everyone tries to sell their vision of a perfect world, but ultimately, it all tastes the same. It's just another brand of Cola, just with some new flavours and a few missing.

  • Bad Conduct

    If they don't put cheap labour overseas, they'll just bring poor working conditions back home.

  • Bad Conduct

    The cost of silver is measured in the cost to the company that extracts it.
    If they can't sell silver at a profit, then it's value is to high and the demand will increase, thus the prices will increase.
    You can certainly manipulate the markets to prevent the overvaluation of silver, but people are only willing to spend money extracting it at a profitably value. That argument is null. It's only worth $25, because I can easily go buy it at $25 or less. When I can't find any silver anywhere, and I'm willing to pay $50, that will be the day it's worth $50.

  • JC

    Not so bad... I little long... but this Young Man has a lot to say. It's not surprising with the onset of the 21st Century of information, it's time for a new paradigm that's more wholesome to our Humanity.

    Awesome but long documentary. Good to watch even if you think you already know why hundreds of children die of starvation every day while rich tycoons continue forcing slaves to cut down sugar plants every single day without a day off or any real salary.

  • Sine

    Do anyone know, who made this documentary?

  • https://www.facebook.com/lovinight?ref=tn_tnmn Leslie

    Maybe you missed it but the poster said that silver had been kept artificially low for years, this would mean having already bought some would not be making anyone rich, on the contrary, for those of us who watched our savings disappear since it basically stopped earning interest and it's value went down, silver will help recover some of that loss when the price explodes. I would suggest being careful where you buy it, what they don't know you have , they can't take.

    The have not s will outnumber the haves.
    Greed, laziness vs hard work, dishonesty, distrust.
    I for one have been storing food, some of it is stuff in 50lb bags, most of that stuff I do not even like, I plan to use it for trade, I have seeds and already grow some stuff & I already have problems with people helping themselves when they walk by., never bothering to ask first.

    When SHTF, that is going to end, I have been telling people to stock up, they roll their eyes, they got new car payments to make and clothes to buy. I will be happy to share with other people who have made some attempt to prepare, those that didn't, they will be on their own, I have a 16 yr old son to think about and a middle aged husband who is full blown hyperthyroid, my GOD he can eat & stay thin, he makes me SICK! That would have to be fixed as well, he actually eats more than my son and is thinner, sick, sick, sick!

    This grow and share is a nice romantic idea but it will only work for maybe 35% of the population, otherwise you will have a lot of takers who give NOTHING.

  • https://www.facebook.com/lovinight?ref=tn_tnmn Leslie

    Really? You don't see hundreds of people trying to warn others and telling everyone to stock up. The
    ones that will be SOL will be the ones who ignored all of it and kept buying all the shiny stuff.

    I got pomegranates in my front yard, I swear, EVERYONE who walks by STEALS about 3, I nobody asks, nobody and this is why it makes me so mad, they just take and to top it off, most of them take ones that are not even ripe.they will take one bite and throw them away, yet next time they walk by, same thing. I put up signs, I put up cameras, made no difference, these are not homeless or poor people either. One young spiffy dressed black guy walked by one day (no I am not predigest different races and age groups and sexes sometimes have specific attitudes)

    Some of them spend all of their $ on appearance while eating at McDonald's, which is their choice, anyway, I watched him fill his pockets with about 5 Pomegranates and he was still grabbing more, I opened the door and said, you know, it sure would be nice if you would at least ask first, so he puts the one he has in his hand down (pockets still full) and asks me if he could grab two, not knowing I know he has at least 5 in his pockets. I said go ahead, as he was leaving, I let him know that I knew his pockets were already full and told him next time don't bother asking.

    Before you jump all over me, this guy was athletic looking, well groomed, spotless, clothing, brand new everything matched and not one wrinkle in anything, brand spankin new tennis shoes, everything, very obvious this guy was not suffering AT ALL

    for what i have seen and now understand, he could of did the with the
    first 1 hour and 30 minutes (after the george carlin bit) and called it
    finished.. as the repitition is high.. and pal if you keep repeating the
    info and one liners, throughout, than are you not really just what you
    have been talking about the whole documentry..

    Sorry, the pseudo-patriotic obsession with the US is evidence enough this poor guy's cup runneth over. "Our military is over stretched", is like saying the only bad choice The Nazis made was turning on Russia. The founding fathers studied everything about freedom & the natural by product was a slave trade, right? Yes, you are a true patriotic American. It seems that where American society's once open, & for the record, held policy "kill the Indian, save the man", in this guy represents another dynamic of that pathology, a generational development. It seems he's saying "save the American, save the human". If he fails, what else can all those colored people do but die, huh? Americans have raped the planet, now just let us rule in peace, for everybody's good. I'm betting the 92 mil cancer death in the US, in '13, will do more for world peace than Americans can face, sadly.

    I disagree with the initial premise of this documentary, that being that human happiness must follow a pyramid like process to achieve happiness. This is totally 100% false. Happiness is a complex interconnected web of emotions that vary from person to person. The author is trying to simplify an extremely complex topic. The longer I listened the more doom and gloom the author is. The author is very cult like--and uses phrases like (check for yourself, etc) that are designed to actually mislead the listener by assuring the listener that they can 'check', but suggesting that the author is actually correct in his assertions. Hitler also used similar manipulation strategies. Sure as hell didn't get through 4 hours!

    Thank you for your contribution to society. There may be some who Did not enjoy the film and care to express it via comments. But there are others who never read the comments and enjoy the message your giving out to humanity. Thank you, please don't stop contributing, we need more people as yourself.

    IMO, one of the most astute comments you made dealt with critical thinking, and the refusal (okay, you used a more palatable word for it) to think by the vast majority of our population because thinking is hard. I don't believe thinking is hard. For me it's fun.The last time our country was in an equally bad political scene, the Republican party finally reached a place of prominence (today's equivalent would be the Libertarian Party), and, after the Civil War, the country had an extremely effective 3 party system which led them to the Industrial Revolution.

    I enjoyed watching the Documentary. I wish I could get more people to watch it. The things you say in it make me feel that I'm FINALLY not alone... That what I've been ranting about since the passage of the Patriot Act is being echoed by others who can see precisely, and for emphasis, again, PRECISELY what I see happening. Reading some of these other comments must make you want to blow a gasket, don't they? It's so difficult for me to show all my friends--smart people, educated people, what's coming, only to have them say, and I quote one of my best friends "I don't want to know about it. I want to stay inside my Mommy bubble."

    I only hope I can spend my "dollar" fast enough and wisely enough to set me up for extreme success after the beginning of hyperinflation.

    I think it's important to point out the relevance of your excellent, at least FOR ME, UPLIFTING documentary. Sir, you see precisely what I see. I am doing my best to get a self-sustaining cooperative put together before the dollar becomes virtually worthless. I only HOPE I can get everything done which needs doing BEFORE the paradigm shift. We absolutely HAVE TO remember that just 2 short months ago, the USA came dangerously close to defaulting, but nobody wants to be the congressmen or president in office when we are forced to default--nobody but the libertarians that is, as every libertarian (as in, have the philosophy of a libertarian, not "Libertarian" with a capital L, as in the political party, though smart Libertarians tend to also be libertarians :) ) I know sees the only way America CAN recover WITHOUT hyperinflation, and that's through an enormous reduction of the Federal Government, elimination of the DHS, elimination of Obamacare, elimination of Welfare, elimination of the DEA, etc... Of course, this would put millions out of a job, forcing them to start their climb out of poverty.

    Of course, BECAUSE I write such things and shout them to the world, I've become (and I know this will sound like lunacy or paranoia to some) a target for the FBI, Secret Service, and the DHS. The latter 2 have already given me a "friendly" interrogation, with a demand, as a disabled veteran, to allow them access to things which they couldn't legally see without my permission. Of course I gave it to them. I have nothing to hide, and for the NSA guys who read this, my goal is to HELP as many of my American Combat veteran brothers survive as I can, and I'm doing it with my own money (at least so far).

    How in the world we can actually believe 1 in 6 Americans SHOULD qualify for disability is beyond me--or WAS until I found out obesity is considered a disability.

    I would like very much to meet you someday, and sit down and talk. From the documentary, I know for certain we would be building one another up, instead of trying to tear each other down. Thank you so much for putting this together. It lets me know I'm not alone, and others DO see EXACTLY what I see. I hope you'll take me up on my invitation for discourse. If you can't find me through this post, by all means, let me know and I'll send you a way to get in contact.

    First of all, thank you so much for putting all of this together. It makes for a very nice "one stop shopping" area when I want to impress upon either my students, their parents, my friends, etc..., the way I view the world.

    Just to continue with a series of more or less seemingly unconnected thoughts, IMO, one of the most astute statements you made dealt with critical thinking, and the moronic refusal (okay, so you put it less harshly ) to think by the vast majority of the American population because, for them, thinking is hard. I, however, cannot relate and have real problems with my friends who listen but refuse to hear.I don't believe thinking is hard. For me it's fun.

    Something I thought could have been added was the problem with what has really become a one party political system, with two branches that disagree on only about 4 or 5 major issues, but agree on 30 or 40 major issues. The last time our country was in an equally bad political scene, the Republican party reached a place of prominence (today's equivalent would be the Libertarian Party), and, after the Civil War, the country had an extremely effective 3 party system which led us to the Industrial Revolution.

    Overall though, I enjoyed watching the Documentary. I wish I could get more people to watch it. The things you say in it make me feel that I'm FINALLY not alone, or at least not AS alone as I generally feel when I try to get through to people they need to wake up... That what I've been ranting about since the passage of the Patriot Act is being echoed by others who can see precisely, and for emphasis, again, PRECISELY what I see happening. Reading some of these other comments must make you want to blow a gasket, doesn't it? It's so difficult for me to show all my friends--smart people, educated people, what's coming, only to have them say, and I quote one of my best and closest friends "I don't want to know about it. I want to stay inside my Mommy bubble." She has a newborn and doesn't want to think about the need to prepare for what's coming. I'm hoping she'll watch this and realize she absolutely MUST MOBILIZE!

    As for me? Well, I only hope I can spend my "dollar" fast enough and wisely enough to set me up for extreme success after the beginning of hyperinflation through investing in tangible assets which will be worth just as much, if not MORE, once it hits. I am doing my best to get a self-sustaining cooperative put together before the dollar becomes virtually worthless. I only HOPE I can get everything done which needs doing BEFORE the paradigm shift.

    I also think it's important to point out the relevance of your excellent, at least FOR ME, UPLIFTING documentary at least a year after you published it. Sir, you see precisely what I see. For those of us just stumbling onto this, we absolutely HAVE TO remember that just 2 short months ago, the USA came dangerously close to defaulting, but didn't because, in effect, nobody wants to be the congressmen or president in office when we are forced to default--nobody but the libertarians that is, as every libertarian (as in, "have the philosophy of a libertarian," not "Libertarian" with a capital L, as in the political party, though smart Libertarians tend to also be libertarians :) ) I know sees the only way America CAN recover WITHOUT hyperinflation. We could do it through an enormous reduction in size of the Federal Government, elimination of the DHS, elimination of Obamacare, elimination of Welfare, elimination of the DEA, severe shrinking of the military (and coming from a career, retired soldier, that's saying something)etc... Of course, this would put millions out of a job, forcing them to start their climb out of poverty, but hyperinflation could make it worse--could make it so pretty much the cash machine would be reset with everyone at zero. People, right now, have to decide which way they want to handle Trillions of dollars in debt. As I see it, we only have two choices: hyperinflation, or severe reduction in size of the Federal Gov't in combination with an increase in Tax revenue (presumably through income taxes on what would become a legalized, highly regulated drug trade. See Portugal's approach to drugs and how tremendously successful it's been).

    Of course, BECAUSE I write such things and shout them to the world, I've become (and I know this will sound like lunacy or paranoia to some) a target for the FBI, Secret Service, and the DHS. The latter 2 have already given me a "friendly" interrogation, with a demand, as a disabled veteran, to allow them access to things which they couldn't legally see without my permission. Of course I gave it to them. I have nothing to hide, and for the NSA guys who read this, my goal is to HELP as many of my American Combat veteran brothers survive as I can, and I'm doing it with my own money (at least so far).

    To boot, how in the world we can actually believe 1 in 6 Americans SHOULD qualify for disability is beyond me--or WAS until I found out obesity is considered a disability, as are non-diagnoses like Fibromyalgia.

    I would like very much to meet you someday, and sit down and talk. From the documentary, I know for certain we would be building one another up, instead of trying to tear each other down, though I would also absolutely understand, with as many whackos as we have on the net, if you chose not to identify yourself or seek discourse on the topic.

    Regardless, again, Thank you so much for putting this together. It lets me know I'm not alone, and others DO see EXACTLY what I see. I hope you will take me up on my invitation for discourse. If you can't find me through this post, by all means, let me know and I'll send you a way to get in contact.

    Is there anything he missed? Well, there was one thing. He didn't mention the fact that some people will consume today all that they have, while others will save a small amount each day for the morrow. We learn that young, some of us that is. Some will deny themselves something today, saving their earnings instead for the time when those savings are considerable, enough for a car, or a vacation. But those who don't save look at their neighbor, and think "Why can't I have a car like that?" The amount saved was small, and hardly noticeable each day, but after a year or so, or longer, maybe a couple of years, suddenly there's enough money to buy that new car, and for cash at that. When I was a child during WWII everything was rationed. Coke and ice cream were a nickel, a bus ride and a stamp were 4 cents. Our dollar has lost about 95% of it's value since the war years. So there emerged a different mindset for the saver versus those who never saved.

    When I took a job with Wells Fargo Bank in the late 60's I had access to their library, so I taught myself about money. I found the 1936 classic book by Freeman Tilden, "A World in Debt", where he writes about debt, not credit. And I learned from Franz Pick that no currency in the world was not devalued eventually, they were inflated until they died. I expected our current money troubles, and felt if we did nothing then, in the mid-70's, we would lose the chance to act. So I stashed away some silver junk coins. Now, 35 years later we've reached trillions of dollars debt, and we have no way out of the downward spiral. There are no answers now, we've already spent all our money, and all our credit, and we've inflated to the limit. We need to produce, not consume. The world is topsy-turvey...... And this is what we're leaving our children?..... Shame on all you politicians and bankers, shame on you...... shame on us......

    Comprehensively Informative

    About 1hr and 55 minutes into the documentary, the guy starts on a rant of individual [social predators, psychopaths, sociopaths] as being the reason for america's and corporation operation. I strongly disagree with this concept.

    Does a social predator come to position of decision making or does the institution make social predators? Define sympathetic resonance. How do you change a legacy, the way its been, overwhelming so just comply. Think in the context of Martin Luther King quote on being a member of the maladjusted society. Through programming or manufactured consent we produce those that can perpetuate many social ills, even those that are praised in their contributions to the maladjusted society.

    RIGHT BY MIGHT
    "The ancients denied that there is any natural right to liberty. Human
    beings are born neither free nor equal. The natural human condition is not one of freedom, but of subordination. They were right in thinking that there is only one natural right - the right of the superior to rule over the inferior - the master over the slave, the husband over the wife, and the wise few over the vulgar many. As to the pursuit of happiness - what could the vulgar do with happiness except drink, gamble, and fornicate?" -Leo Strauss

    THE WHY
    "When you look at a corporation, just like when you look at a slave owner, you want to distinguish between the institution and the individual. So slavery, for example, or other forms of tyranny are inherently monstrous.

    The individuals participating in them may be the nicest guys you can image. Benevolent, friendly, nice to the children, even nice to their slaves. Caring about other people. I mean, as individuals they may be anything, but in their institutional role, they’re monsters, because the institution is monstrous." -Noam Chomsky

    the world is going to change or we will go extinct. what can we do in the meantime? does this type of information leave you wondering what to do? where could we possibly start at this point? i have been asking myself these questions almost a decade now. i decided back then to research until i had the clearest picture possible to answer these very questions.i have been able to take any instance of domination corruption and break it down to the smallest level of detail in terms of where this all stems from. it begins in the brain. specifically our internal dialog and the method we use to deal with our thoughts. if we have a thought and just accept it as truth it is a roll of the dice. if we develop a specific methodology ,we can ensure constant psychological evolution. lets start with an example let's say a top banker despicable lifestyle of manipulating people and hurting to become richer and richer. (imagined example here) what allows this person to constantly live this particular life style or another say complete empathy giving and dedication to humanity. is the process he uses when dealing specifically with his thoughts. a justification of punishment through domination tactic called the enemy image. once this thinking method is being used the actions of the individual will reflect the thinking. all violence manipulation domination competition lies and unacceptable unintelligent behavior stems from reward and punishment by using an enemy image.

    You have me up until my spiritual connection with my higher power !Basic needs and wants when balanced bring a sense of awareness. I once had all the money in the world. At least in my world and my families !I do not believe in any Higher power. On of my biggest breakthroughs was to free myself from the yolk of religion and belief in a supernatural being !!This documentary is good for the the young and should be watched by all !!!

  • Jacek Walker

    You cannot have a sane society which is based on lies upon lies. Your politicians are pathological liars and indifferent psychopaths, your entrepreneures are mostly greedy and inconsiderate fast-trackers, your neighbours are envy of virtually everything you got and they don't.
    But even in your closest circle of family and "friends" dishonesty and manipulation are on the daily basis.
    And you are talking about a higher spiritual freedom? For an average Joe the journey to freedom is sadly still in its infancy. I don't ask you to believe me - just look around.
    Until envy will arise in your heart when you see a neighbour's new car and until jealousy erupts when your wife smiles at other males, forget about all those spiritual freedoms or higher states of consciousness.
    Start from the beginning.

    That's sad for you. Krishnamurti is well worth getting to know and he oughtn't be lumped in with 'a thousand other new age sources.' Read his "Freedom from the Known" if you ever reconsider your opinion ;)

  • RBM

    I thought it was arrogant of the narrator to state that it was his goal to bring about a massive paradigm shift and thereby 'free the world' by video-editing and quoting the works of others and calling it a total freedom project. A four-hour regurgitation of social and economic theories paired with stock photos isn't going to accomplish anything even close. Real change takes a lifetime of painstaking work, and just telling people that they don't think because it is hard comes off as patronizing. This was just a hodgepodge of memes giving the same tired message: "most" people are sheep who need to wake up. That doesn't sound particularly enlightening, it just sounds like another thirty-something libertarian spouting insults disguised as wisdom. We've seen this movie along with the obligatory bumper sticker logic before. Disappointing.

  • RBM

    Greetings Martin,

    I've been reading your comments with interest and will continue to do so. I've been attempting to sort out world affairs since I became interested in the 60's and 70's when I read of the Club of Rome and Zero Population Growth and such. It seemed like a serious effort for a while, when suddenly the economy took off again and interest wasn't sustained. There were so few people who were serious, so few who knew we had been brainwashed concerning debt and consumption. And taught nothing regarding it in school. But the big picture was being spelled out by James Dines and Richard Russell and other prescient newsletter writers of the day who saw the long wave, and many, including me, expected some resolution in the seventies. But gold surged and Richard Nixon ended the gold convertibility of the dollar. Paul Volcker then stopped rates from rising when the long bond was screaming upwards of 15%, and another inflationary surge began, until today when we're seeing mid single-digit rates. None of us thought the power of fiat money could be so strong.

    When the world's currency became a fiat currency those knowlegible with the French and German experiences thought sanity would prevail, but easy money and easy credit became like drugs, absolutely overwhelming, the eighties blossomed like no one could believe. The truly conservative people paid down debt while the young and optimistic went into debt to their limits.

    Now I read how vulnerable we are as a nation here in the US, and I'm watching our debt explode. But this time it's the entire world that is involved...... And people still believe the lies of their governments, that they should still be going further into debt. I was happy to see Barlett's photo on your other web page, it reminded me of attempting to interest a math class I was teaching in 1984 in the nature of exponential growth and doubling times, to very little interest on the student's part.

    Perhaps population growth is slowing finally, but hardly enough to stop the growth of megamillion person cities, which seem so fragile to me. And we have cars built now that the owners can't begin to fix, and the same with electronic devices. To this old man it's a very fragile world, very, very fragile.....

  • don't tread on me

    I just would like to say if you have taken the time to watch the vid then surely you most have gotten something from it. personally I think all of us need to at very least spread the message (its time the sleeping giant to wake up) tell 2 people and help them see the light, Have them tell 2 people and so one. You get the point, within a short period we will have power in numbers and we can start the huge task of taking back this country from the idiots that think they are in charge.
