If you don't submit to control, if you're a radical, you're less likely to be loved. You're not fitting in with society; you're viewed as an outsider. There are a lot of social prohibitions about the outsider and the person who's going to upset things. From the time we're very young, we're taught to worship authority, basically, because that's our key to survival as young children. But as adults, we never go through the rights of passage that tell us how to methodically think for ourself, and thus we're always in a state of extended adolescence.

We take all this stuff, whether it's the television or it's the inculturation, the school yards, the teachers... we take this whole system, we put it into our unconscious mind, and it is the GIGO that comes out... Garbage In, Garbage Out. We simply have harnessed our own power by accepting all these beliefs as though they are factual, whether it's the flat earth of Columbus or it's the idea that I'm not good enough to be or to do something I've dreamed to do.

To the degree that the individual loses the sense of what freedom really means for him, mind control is working. Everybody's born into this control structure, everybody's born into authority. Everyone's born into the situation, but just because you have an authority making decisions for you at some point when you're very young, too young to take care of yourself, doesn't mean you should always cater to authority your whole life. We have established a framework which for the most part works pretty good. People enter into this contract with society. That contract allows them to follow certain rules and expect certain returns on their investment of working within the framework of the contract.

Human beings form habits. At some point in our lives, many of us realize that the lives we are living are not those which we have imagined, but rather lives reflecting others' imaginations, as if we have been unwitting actors in someone else's script. Can be the minds of individuals harnessed by systems of psychological control?

Are the habits reflected by human beings in direct conflict with their needs to survive and thrive in this world? The enormous implications deter many of us from asking these simple questions and finding answers relevant to our daily lives. If we don't resist all of the different information that comes our way and weigh it and use our own mind instead of what somebody else wants us to think, eventually society would become nothing more than automatons, robots. The establishment has protected itself. Unless you submit to the saturation indoctrination and adopt all its values, you can't get in. You can get the DVD at

    Human beings have always been and always will be conditionned by their environments. If you want to change the way they think and so the way they behave, change the environment. But it has to be done slowly, but surely, generation after generation. Why? The very principle, the very definition, the very idea of conditionning is that the conditionned person doesnt know he has been condionned. How? Conditionning, and so mind control, happens at a very early stage of life, an age when we are not even aware that we are aware, a very early stage of life when we take in all the information without questioning, thats how we later think that things are normal. And thats how mind control has been operating since long long time ago. In a few generations it will be normal to have a microchip in the brain and if you dont have one, the sheeple around you may kill you because for them you will be threath (not normal).
    "Whoever happened to create this particular space-time continuum, if not from the beginning, sooner or later, had something very much like mind-control in mind" - Jon Rappoport.

    1. BeFree

      GREAT MOVIE!! talk about COVID prediction !!!!!

  3. Zac Tolan

    I will say this: We are to draw the line at the mark of the beast being implemented. It will be clear what it is exactly, when it is implemented. Until then, it is possible for "real people" to live among the evil world. Although, the "real people" would be wise to fully devote themselves to working righteousness and band together in order to support others who so choose to be real people, becoming a "city set on a hill," which is the true revolution.

    A decent documentary. I can see how someone who's raised to go to school, get a job, buy the house, raise the family, buy the latest techno gadgets, have a great car and so forth would have a hard time digesting material like this. Granted, there are much better docs out there, but it's still difficult to inform people who simply do not want to be informed. As Mark Twain once said "It's easier to fool people than it is to convince them that they have been fooled". Conspiracy theories range from the very plausible to the absolutely wild and where each theory lands on the spectrum is subject to the interpretation of the uninformed.

    "You are not just committing suicide to yourself, but against all good humanity"... How in hell does that works? I mean, if he were to say "murder to all good humanity" it would have some sense -as a sentence-... But well, considering all the BS they talk on this thing it's no surprise...

  7. Phoenix Goodman

    This documentary is very pernicious. It has a lot of very good insight into breaking free from cultural norms and thinking out side of the box- but it's great discussions on that are a Trojan horse, to lure the unsuspecting truth-seeker astray.

    Why? Because it frames the "control" vs "freedom" dichotomy as the same dichotomy as "state" vs "individual"

    This indoctrinates the unsuspecting viewer towards libertarian ideology, to espouse the narrow narrative of small government being equated with freedom.

    In truth, while governments can and do practice tyranny, and this should be acknowledged, it is true in the context of the western world today that the greatest tyranny is of private financial interests- globalized big banking and big corporations- the very things that proper pro-democracy legislation can curtail through safegaurds and regulations.

    This libertarian "truth seeker" narrative is extraordinarily pernicious by flipping the problem into the solution- by advocating less safegaurds against the ravages of unfettered markets, in which only the elite benefit.

    I may go so far as to say that this is actually a meta-conspiracy in which the elites have realized the inconvenience of the internet awakening people, and so planted Alex Jones as a psy op operative to neutralize and indoctrinate a false consciousness among anti elite sympathizers to have them believe ideologies that are actually pro-elite.

    Not to mention, any of the Abrahamic religions, including Christianity, are a bastion of unreason and major source of psychopathic behavior and irrationality in the world. This documentary, rather than espousing enlightenment values, espouses stone age ideologies like Christianity.

      Very interesting and well-written. Thank you.

    "Show it to your friends and family, or show it your church." lol Love it!

    I like Alex Jones. He's tenacious, passionate and is a bulldog for what he believes in. I don't agree with a lot of he has to stay, find him paranoid and hysterical, and he's obviously very poor at coming to conclusions rationally, But he has the atmosphere of the U.S. State today pegged and may be in fact a true prophet- you know, someone that does actually see the worst coming and it does come to pass. I also feel he has a genuine love for people and wants to protect them so that they may lead happy, healthy lives by exposing the militarization of the U.S. before it's too late.
    In my pantheon of contemporary heroes, Alex Jones definitely has a place. He might get it wrong far more often than he gets it right, he might turn off more people than he turns on, but his liveliness and stubborn demeanor gives him an energizing role amongst the cooler and more analytical whistle blowers of these very dangerous times.

  10. Leigh Atkins

    I don't know, maybe I'm being too hard on Alex. I feel that he's talking down to his audience. But if you consider that this could actually be brand new information to the average audience member, maybe he's just explaining it for them?!?
    I actually spoke to someone today who couldn't believe that there are such cold, disgusting, brain-damaged individuals in power who can set up 911, convince others that their version is the truth & not to question the official story, while they coldly watch the suffering of so many (still continuing) & collect on the FAT insurance policy - they actually questioned that these individuals really exist!
    If there are still audience members out there like that, maybe Alex has his place.
    He's just not for me, that's all.

  11. Leigh Atkins

    Ok, the fact that Alex Jones is in a substantial portion of this vid makes me suspicious full stop. When the masses FINALLY discover something & begin talking, in order to prevent too much awakening, the institution drags out Alex Jones, shoves a hand up his rear end & gets him to steer the talk away from trouble for the powers that be. That way, the asleeples feel that they're getting the right info & the things creeping around in the dark get to remain safely in power & anonymous.
    Alex has now been trained so well that he no longer needs a hand up his butt & can look suitably outraged all by his little self (I bet he dresses himself too now).
    Alex Jones may taste like real food-for-thinking to the general public (think cheeseburger), but I guarantee that if Alex REALLY revealed some good old-fashioned FACTS that his handlers DON'T want released, he'd be found dead in a ditch somewhere, or would just disappear from the planet altogether. Much like the USA would like to do to Julian Assange, no doubt...
    Oh, & is that a 'modified pentagram' @ 1:28:05?

  12. pattonknew

    i love the commentary here, if this dvd was about russians discussing genocide as opposed to republicans doing it these liberals would be doing the big booty dance...... did this dvd make you so angry?

  13. Patrick

    Dudes in suits kept coming on, interrupting the film, asking for me to send them my money.

  14. John

    i tend to stop every clip or 'documentary' that has a religious connotation. Saves me exposure to a lot of bulls*it. So hearing the word Church at 01:47 saved me to watch 3hrs.
    Works 9 out of 10 no matter what the subject is.

  15. MediaOps

    I found this 'documentary' on YouTube, and when I saw that Alex Jones was involved in it I had to laugh.

    It's fascinating & amusing that so many right-wing conservatives - by nature the most conventional and conformist social group of all - try to identify with nonconformist outsiders & radicals.

    I've done a number of TV interviews with far-right types, and have always been struck by their desire to see themselves as rebels, even as they slavishly adhere to rigid religious ideology and the laughably absurd nonsense on Fox, Limbaugh, Jones, Beck, etc.

    The idea that these guys are somehow independent-minded mavericks who think for themselves is pathetic, since they always do so comfortably surrounded by a support group of like-minded folks, friends family, church members, etc.

    Yet when separated from their group they are almost invariably threatened, defensive and unsure of themselves and their opinions.

  16. MediaOps

    Is this a joke or what? The text is very intriguing, but when I tried to watch the documentary, ithe screen says, "This video does not exist."

    Hmm... Must be a sinister plot by Big Brother to undermine my sense of autonomy and force me to submit to authority..

  17. Walter

    I'm glad to see that most of the people in this comment's section are able to recognize the deceptions and total BS. I saw this documentary had decent reviews so I watched a trailer. Then, when I saw some of the people being interviewed in it--I realized almost instantly that this film has no merit whatsoever. But, I was still curious so I arrived here to see what people are saying...I'll keep it short: I won't be watching this film. Thanks!

    My father has been wrongfully incarcerated for 4 months, in Yavapai county jail. Now, because he refuses to go along with their system, the courts hit him with rule 11 and have began to give him resperdol as of 10/26/13. The drug changes the chemicals in the brain. My father is very smart, and at one point he worked 3 jobs to support us. I feel so lost!

    1. milton

      AIimee what I will now share here with you on how to increase your chances of winning your fight against the system if your cause is a just one comes from first hand experience., An experience I will briefly share with you. I was falsely accused, charged , arrested , placed in jail, drug through the courts and even placed in a mental pysch. ward because I refused to do what the system has programmed the poor among the masses in our society to do automatically, which is to immediately summit ! Because the system begins teaching us at an early age to believe that the will, power, authority and level of intelligence of the system ( designed by the puppet masters ) and the brainwashed clueless puppets that run it is greater then that of one's own. In my case not only did the local police and members of federal law enforce working in the local area where I live, but also the local judges, defense attorneys all conspired together against me and the other top members of the organization I work for. And get this ! the organization I work for itself happens to be a law enforcement company. Though I can't for legal and security reasons go into greater details on my case I will tell you this ! With the handling of your case concerning your father when dealing with the system it may be necessary for you to think outside the box . Also remember that because those whom you are relying on are part of the system they may not actually ( regardless of what they may tell you ) have the best interests of you and your father at heart so seek input concerning the legal system from family and friends and it's not required that they be experts. Learn to think for and trust yourself don't always think that just because someone is a so called expert or professional that there smarter then you. Because after all is it not the so called well educated professionals and experts running the world and look at how screwed up it is. And most importantly of all pray and ask God for help and guidance and you'll be surprised at the outcome.

    2. Janeen Clark

      that is terrible keep your inner strength and your love strong and know that people care about what you are experiencing.

  19. lostartistic

    this is ****. Many videoshots that must come from a atok video supplier. And then yadayada. Ok when you make documentaries so similar on many areas they grw together. They appear in eachothers documentary as an expert on the issue or to conclude information.

    And that is Propaganda.

    How can you make documentaries that has so very little hard fact to base its opinions which are great it size.

    But you can by every documentary or pay in support.

    But htis stimulates alot of people that find somehting inncluding in these documentaries. Bad against good.

    And that is why conspiracy can be drawn lines to the consept of a religion.

  20. Josh Christian

    Yes there is mind control by the corporate state.. but this film and most like it are absolutely tools of that movement. By scaring you away from a government of the people by the people you are made vulnerable to the cult of personality and to the lure of individualism..false individualism...

  21. codyac

    Be Carefull when people say New World Order. Many use this term as a scare tactic to fearmonger you into resisting change, therefore continuing the status quo. This benefits the elites. The REAL NWO, advocates chage, but respect for rights

  22. codyac

    Its all about balance between the individual and the community. Alex Jones does this doc a disfavor because he does not believe in any community. I would say the free market, mainly through marketing, by consumerism greatly distracts our humanity toward one another. Our psych is vulnerable to such marketing, so in reality, we hardly have free choice. (Watch the move The Wave. Its a German movie. Very good and shows what this doc is trying to convey)

  23. codyac

    Implement some of the Venus Project for Basic Necessities. Then you are free to do as you wish, whether that be an engineer, philosopher, bum, Student etc.

  24. jeff

    I thought the hippie generation was supposed to save us from all that. Actually i m torn. We've been trying to organize society since the tower of Babble. Being able to work toward a common goal in unison is great. But keep your eye on the big picture!!

  25. luis rodrigues coelho

    I would like to highlight the facts that everything you seen in this documentary, is a result of the set of laws and precepts written in the Babylonian Talmud. If you read this infamous book, you will find that jewry considers the gentiles (us) as non-human "goyn", meaning, cattle. So no wonder Alex Jones says and quite rightly, that the ruling elites (international jewry) wants to get rid of most of the world population through eugenics, wanting to leave just some slaves in order to do some manual work the elites could not do themselves. Since the days they rejected Jesus Christ that they set a plan for world domination. They thought Jesus was coming t dominate and subjugate the world, but Jesus came with another philosophy and even stted that His Kingdom was not rom this world. So the Pharisees and rabbis had to create a book of laws where they could make all jews follow: The Babylonian Talmud. This new world order people talk about, is nothing but the coming reign of the anti-Christ. It is written in the Bible that the root of all evil is the love for money; Karl Marx state that money is the god of the jews.These enslaved the entire world with a system of borrowing and charging high interests, creating debt, accumulating with this tactic, endlss wealth; and with financial power, comes all other sorts of power. Ther game is not money anymore, since they have control of everything, all natural resources, ll banks, etc; they game at this stage is to dethrone God from the world; since they follow jewish mysticism, the gnostic of the Kabbalah, they then are luceferians and therefore they believe Lucifer is the true good god, so they need to get rid of ur true God. Thisis their ultimate goal, to force everyone to worship Lucifer as god, something satan vowed to do his best to achieve !!! Read Albert Pike(morals and dogma), Voltaire, Madame Blavatsky(he secret doctrine) or Alice Bailey(the externalization of the hierarchy) and see what they said they wanted as a priority: the destruction of the catholic church, sata's main enemy !!!

    1. Carol

      Where did you recieve this message.

    2. sa

      I have read most of those books - not Voltaire, but I've read HPB, several books by Alice Bailey, Morals & Dogma, as well as a whole host of other books by the likes of Manly P. Hall, Rudolf Steiner, Eliphas Levi, et al. Nowhere do any of them call Lucifer a god. If anything, they call him a demigod allegorically representative of the principle of untamed or untempered passion, held in check by the archangel Michael, or moderation and rationality. They ALL recognize the Christ figure as an Ascended Master and the ideal towards which all humanity should strive with regard to their own spiritual development. Satan and Lucifer are not the same. Satan is representative of the principle of negation - that which works against one's spiritual progression - the Tempter - the Adversary - that part of every individual's personality or mentality that enables them to rationalize a divergence from their Path towards self-unfoldment. Satan doesn't exist, according to the Theosophical Society or the PRS - evil is just the wrong use of intelligence - it's the shadow that accompanies the light, or as MPH put it, it's ill-fitted placement of the good. It's an entirely subjective concept.
      Anyway, if you want to talk about "evil", the Catholic Church would be a good place to start. Burnings at the stake, the witch trials, the crusades, the inquisition, rampant pedophilia, popes who are on record as saying things like "Sex between man and boy is as natural as one hand washing the other," etc.

    If you like paranoia, this is great stuff.

  27. Eric Schwartzentruber

    just a thought, i really liked this and find a lot of topics i would like to look into more and educate myself....but right at the end it seems like the same hypnotism, and forced thought that they talked about, WHAT IF, this was just another experiment into the human psyche, they put a lot of pressure on the viewer that they MUST stand up, when the average person just seeks to find happiness in possession, or instant gratification....they want to watch heroes not be heroes....i firmly believe that we need to educate ourselves, don't get me wrong but similar brain wash tactics can be used in multiple applications to get results....i guess what i'm saying is question everything you see and hear and read....(I believe they also said this in the documentary)...just a thought..please comment!

    1. Rhiannon Edge

      it is possible that the urgency is a reflection of the actual urgency to take notice

    2. luis rodrigues coelho

      You mean, this video being used to condition people into fighting the ruling elites? I have been warning people that by now, the elites have control of the world and one of the things they want, is for people to protest and revolt on the streets, so they can have the proper excuse to deploy police forces and establish a police state and martial law. So these elites have a few key people around the world, some so call "truth seekers" who expose some facts about conspiracies to make them look credible in the eyes of the public; some f these truth seekers could be Alex Jones, David Ike, etc, because these two I did mention never go too deep in their findings, they never touch what really hurts sort o speaking. So did you mean that there is a possibility that this documentary is used as another form of public conditioning? I would accept that type of reasoning mate.

  28. Zorocano78

    It seems to me that some people have very little comprehension of the process of culturalisation, and thus the systematic process of indoctrination into the culture in which they exist. Hence you often hear "some" folks (no names mentioned you know who you are) ranting such nonsense as "its CONSPIRACRY" or "its MY UNDERSTANDING"..... and following some such nonsense about what they read in the news..... The thing is most people are sheep, they already thing they are individuals, they think what they have been taught in their culturalisation process has enabled them to become free thinking individuals free to occupy their space in their liberal democractic world where if they don't like something they can vote for another person to begin telling them what to do......The sad thing is these people, some of which are very well educated are unfortunately blind to the shroud over their eyes. They wont believe in anything different that threatens or contradicts their current consensual views.......of course these individuals will not change their mind as they do not want to be outside the current belief all these individuals as they like to see themselves hold on to common social beliefs and systems in which they feel they belong....they will hold on to ideas and ideals that will reinforce their ego, and thus reinforce their sense of identity within the system that they exist in. There is no arguing or debating with such individuals as they have closed ears and closed eyes and more over a closed mind and ego. They will respond aggressively towards such words as mine, they will be derogatory and demeaning, they will attempt to shout down or put down anything that is not complimentary to their beliefs. And of course like those who once claimed the earth was round people like myself will be considered heretics or modern day blasphemers. However experience and time will teach such idiots exactly what the truth is....... For now you cant wake them up because they already think they are awake, you cant show them because they think they already know, you cant teach them because they have already been taught...........and because they feel they are endowed with the knowledge to make their own decisions they feel that they are already free and individual.........However in one simple sentence I will tell you what you are " A PRODUCT OF THE STATE" or "GROSS NATIONAL PRODUCT". You are registered at birth, named and numbered, educated and taught to work for money, and to aspire to have more money to alleviate your financial are enslaved to an economic system that does not recognise you the individual, but utilises the idea that you are an individual so that you compete for the limited resources that are essentially finite on this planet in order to profit from you, so that a social El Lite can maintain the status quo.
    For those of you that are already on the same page as myself there is no point in seeking to change the minds of those that are in all aspects closed to knowing the truth. It is a waste of time and energy. What is more important is that those of us who are conscious of what is occurring is that we seek to change those aspects of our own lives so that we do everything to withdraw our consent from this global system. With the possibility of being designated a social or domestic terrorist as TERROR is the new mantra they spout, or being labelled a conspiracy theorist or some other derogatory term, it is obvious to anyone with an ounce of perception that the US and EU economies are mathematically designated to collapse.....It is impossible for them to maintain the current level of consumption and economic growth with such finite resources that exist. Social and economic collapse is inevitable and not a question of if but when. Those who are now reading this and preparing their own rant at me are those individuals who are going to be swallowed whole by the collapse of this current paradigm. Their "individual" sheep like behaviour has enabled them to read this and make their own unique judgement that what they are reading is rubbish, because they are informed "individuals" who read the news and have an education........ But soon they will see, truly see what they have been blind to.

    1. Gaia O

      This film is precisely the film I would have created, every last word of it. I did not need this film to wake me up.

      Sadly, as Zorocano78 has posted, most people, even the most intelligent people, have not a clue, and this is so.

      I KNOW the power of brainwashing, and know we all, myself included, have been brainwashed, conditioned, educated, whatever word one wants to use since the cradle, and even before that, in the womb, by their culture, all accident of birth into that particular culture.

      This is so obvious, as i say on my radio show and espouse all the time, we are mostly NOT who we think we are. We are mostly for those 'fortunate' to be one of the mainstream due to a fairly 'average' upbringing, and not for whatever reason, NEEDING or somehow being on the fringe, personality-wise.

      I did NOT choose to understand what few do understand. This also i take no credit for being a 'non-sheep.' all the credit for that, or at least the foundation of me versus most is that i had a very extreme upbringing with only myself to rely on and such an upbringing could only make for me being very much a misfit. NOT insane, but someone who by psychological necessity, had to figure it all out myself, as i grew up with no one who cared. From early early childhood when little kids are generally taken at least some sort of 'average' care and look to their parents then their teachers and their peers for so as to feel 'safe' and able to cope and survive, THIS I DID NOT HAVE. But i did not go crazy, instead and i think this holds true for anyone who for whatever reason has some innate inner strength they do not go crazy they go inward and KNOW all that is outside the 'norm' with 'life' is not what they see as good or correct and quite naturally they do experience life from a different point of view. They are privy to things that most all others are not for all others for the most part are feeling very much a part of life. They see their parents as gods, their teachers the same, they 'fit in' and their peers like them and the last thing that want to do is alienate them, the notion of being shunned is too horrible for them and at ANY cost more or less they will stick with the group at just about any cost they will no matter if it were to enter their minds that something is wrong something kicks in to save their delusional reality and that is DENIAL...and this is so powerful. as i said even in my case i have suffered from this, ignorant of what is really happening.

      But for me much less. I stopped watching television back in the early 1990s. I don't read newspapers, i do not allow myself to get caught up in the drama and super exaggeration of news stories that i know for a personal fact is either a total lie or so grossly exaggerated that it is a lie, or when i hear of those discredited for being insane or non credible i check these things out.

      I am NOT one who would ever bother to march or join ANY group that was 'anti' sheep. I am a loner, i do not trust most people join anything other than to find a new group whether it be leaving their main stream religion for some new age cult, or really any major change like the hippy movement where all those poor bastards truly believed themselves to be 'individuals' but so sad for all they were doing was turning in one set of 'dress codes' of conservative suit and tie for a pair of dirty jeans and long hair and this supposedly new 'flower power' and dope smoking, all disguise for just a substitution. They did whatever they were told and were just as shunned by their hippy commune friends as the most right wing McCarthism ...there are big strings attached as to how one comports themselves, and even THINKS when a part of any group.

      So i dont do this. I must admit it is lonely at times. And sometimes since i think life is short and we only live once then it is all over so WHY not 'fit in' so life runs smoothly? Why not take Jesus as my personal saviour and BELIEVE this? Well...i wish i could have more peace and serenity in my life but I happen to be brainwashed to despise even thinking of being turned into most people i observe.

      So i say this film is an important one. I wish i had created it for i would have virtually the same way and it stole my thunder. I belong to no one i am an island unto myself ,,,which is sad i guess the price one pays for 'friends' and support i refuse to pay. Sure there are a few like me out there and i feel blessed to find them on the rare occasions they enter my life. I am quite conservative on so much, i do not like technicoloured hair or tatoos all over the body or body piecing or any other fad that is some fake idea of individuality. THAT is not me...I am a lot of people out there who keep their ideas to themselves and just live in a closet with a few others.

      This will never change in this world the few innovative people will alway be here and you will notice if you research just about anyone who has left a mark on this world throughout history they all were just a little bit 'different' than the rest. Not in dress not in anything i am not talking about exhibitionists for we are not that. We just do what we do and if we do get rich or famous we tend to be shy people who do not generally get along so well with most. We are not angry we just know it drains us so sure we often do have very high ideals so we often try to improve the world in our way NOT the way of some guru or govt tells us to. New ways that often do get excepted but quickly the good we intended is USED by the powers that be in a warped and twisted way to do harm for others and good for themselves they steal the new things and use them for their benefit and one more home run for the powers that be and one more demerit for everyone else.

    2. John Jones

      I must admit I agree with you. I keep to myself. Believe very little about what I am told, especially by the TV. I am a Christian, but believe me, I research that thoroughly also. It is in RELIGION, where many get lost. I research my beliefs, and go to the original source, as far as I can go. I don't belong to a church, for therein rests the mass-think mentality, definitely devoid of freedom. If Jesus sets us free, then the church is a trap of conformity.

      I also have shut my TV off. I try to keep an open mind. I research a lot, take no persons truth as gospel. Everything has origins. If I choose to watch something I research who the info. is coming from and place myself in a critical thinking mode. They say 'no man is an island.' I find that to be untrue. All are islands, with the power to let in or kick out. We can create our own environments, in a positive way. We are truly in trouble when we care about what others say or do. We give them quasi-control, so to speak. The journey is continuous, and every day I learn something new. I am not an isolationist, I am being careful and guarding my mind. Thank you so much for your comments. I do feel less alone.

      All seriousness aside for a second *puts on a Ben Stiller mask* Then do it, do it, do it, do it, just do it. Back to a bit of seriousness, I think you have not explored the realms of the underground enough; there are real individuals out there fighting for change, and portraying quite the same message. Seriously look at the Minneapolis music scene and the artists coming from it like Brother Ali, or the whole Doomtree crew; seriously even if you do not like rap or hip-hop (with what is on the radio who really could like that) just listen to Uncle Sam Goddamn, Forest Whitiker, or anything off of the album Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color by Brother Ali and tell me you still feel like a loner. I love you my friend because you are a person, and I hope with all I have that you take my advice and find new friends within the outlet i have provided, if you do I will see you around, if not we all still love you and hope you make the best of this life.

    Seemed interesting until I heard Alex Jones' voice. No thanks...

    1. gustave courbet

      I wished they'd left him out as well, being that he caries so much cultural baggage, but there is some good info in there. For a Jones-free alternative with similar content check out the work of Metanioa Films.

    2. Eric Schwartzentruber

      i made a comment earlier that was really concerning him, while i agree with a lot of what he says, it seems to come off in the same way that the government would tell us something...using scare tactics and fear to direct you to my way of thinking

    3. gustave courbet

      I agree with you there. AJ often uses the demagogic appeals to emotion that he decries in the power elite. Richard Grove, one of the writers of the film, is a much better alternative to Jones, in the depth of his analysis and his rational delivery.

    4. MFDoom

      As you should, just do a simple youtube search of any videos on AJ not from him and you will find a plethora of recorded evidence in which he intentionally tries to provoke peaceful protests to become hostile.

    I know because I have not given up the right to observe and think for myself that I am NOT FREE living in America in 2013. Every day new rules are being imposed telling me what I CANNOT do on my own and what I MUST do to remain acceptable to society. It can be disheartening, yet I truly see a shift in consciousness that is reminding us of who we are as human beings, that we have value and unlimited creative power.
    One Valuable Tip: BLOCK OUT ADVERTISING. And don't watch "The News." And take a look at Nature -- it's our heritage.

  31. disqus_aPmyaz90zj

    I like how it covers social engineering, but in the first few minutes "God" is mentioned; evidence of hypocrisy.

  32. initiated

    Bob, oh dear Bob.... I read your comments and i think you are a funny guy after all, you just wanted some attention did you? Listen Pal. its all in the docu ,I instead of looking at the medium ,I look at the message, try it sometime.

    Everything you have seen in this docu, i have verified, its all searchable . So from your comments the evidence of your blindness;"[.I'm from the UK and we are free here" ] are so deep in the web there, that you found complaisance ,All nice and cuddly in your trap. Your medias are way owned , and even when they get caught you guys still keep you mouth and eyes shut.; On 911 your BBC is the network that exposed the involvement of the media in the coup.Search building 7 and the bbc reporter live

    . And on all others falls flags of the last 20 years or so figure it out , from Boston to 911 , and yes even 7-7 note the awesome coincidence that all of these coup were in conjunction with so call drill.... yes you can search it and see for your self. and as far as the bankers ....again, your country was the initial and still is the point of origin of the Rothschild banking coup. "see London city".

    you are on the edge of the rabbit hole and trust me it is much much deeper then you could ever imagine. history didn't start 100 years ago.after 15 years of study, not 2 weeks of youtube , i still am just scratching the surface. and the answer could not even be resumed in a 120m video. The only point i would agree on is that no one dares to offer a true solution.....maybe cause it would involve getting off our ass and do like the french ; get the guillotine out of the attic .

    so while you have a tea and a cucumber sandwich , make your finger work on the keyboard and instead of trying to convince people of half truth or tell of lie or even attack Mr Jones ,who in my book is a loud mouth filled with great information ,and bless him to get paid , he uses his money to educate the sleeping mass, where the bankers ans Zionist try to put us to sleep in every sense of the word.

    Anyway the net is still for now a great place for education and research....for now , so read a bit , answer your own question, stay away from the mass media and the tabloids, then come back to the table with real facts , less criticism of those who work for real human freedom. and careful of the 22 cameras you will have to be spied by on your way to the pub , free my ass lmfaos

  33. awful_truth

    An excellent documentary that gets to the heart of the most important issue of our time, critical thinking. (or to be more precise, the lack there of) I recommend this as a good starting point for those who have yet to address their own apathy.

  34. Dick Prennoke

    Very good documentary and more pertinent then documentaries like "The Century of the Self" and "The Power of Nightmares".

  35. Karmaloop codes

    Another awesome documentary. Thank you!

    Podium Finnish Doc!!!

  37. Bob

    Rubbish documentary.

    Yes some bad things have taken place in the past i.e eugenics, cigarettes etc

    Alex Jones can not really be taken seriously....If you have NOTHING better to do for almost 2 hrs then give it a watch. The main idea is "we are not free as individuals". (whatever that means). The people in the doc don't really define anything, but just rant about "freedom" .

    There is also rants about drones, cctv, state-funded education, and eugenics. The ending doesn't really conclude anything either. Waste of time really.

    1. Julian

      And movies are just people talking too eh? Its sad you can't put the information together in your mind to see the bigger picture. Don't discount the information because you can't parse it yourself...

    2. socratesuk

      Bob here, slight problem signing in....(so using my other username)

      What is the bigger picture then?....

      To me it was a load of rants, then it ended on a kind of mega-rant about individual freedom?

    3. RedMagnolia

      So the fact that if the government even thinks to a small degree you might be a terrorist they can come in to your home without a warrant, take you, hold you for as long as they like without writ of habeas corpus, isn't a lose of freedom and civil liberties? Guess it's OK with you as long as you are not the person being held.

      That the government passed the Mansanto Protection Act preventing legal action against them if in fact their mucking around with nature turns out to not be safe....that's isn't a lose of freedom?

      Stop drinking the Kool-Aid and watching network news. Or let me know what planet you are living on as it certainly is not Mother Earth.

    4. socratesuk

      To be far they are good points. [I am from the UK and the government doesn't bother us to much here].

      As a UK citizen I do try and keep up with US news/legal proceedings/wars/drone wars/press freedoms etc

      For example I did see a documentary not long ago about the huge amount of people in US prisons/jails who still haven't had their day in court. Which was pretty shocking.

      So what do you think the solution is out of interest? You guys can always form your own political party? Protests?

      Thanks for actually highlighting some specific cases of where individual freedom has come under attack. The documentary didn't really do a very good job of this.

      I am here to learn and better understand the current problems/conflicts/issues in the world. So thank you for your reasoned post.

    5. RedMagnolia

      Thank you for the comment and your interest in learning more about US problems/conflicts/ issues.

      I to thought there was a lot of conspiracy-theory with New World order but after doing a lot of reading by people that I feel have a lot more knowledge and years of studying the issues at hand, I have come to believe that it is not a theory. There are many that are more than willing to have the US continue on its' path of debit that can never be paid. I'm sure you have heard of the Federal Reverse Bank in the US and may believe that it is part of the government and under their control. It's not, it is a cartel of very rich private bankers that fill their pockets off the backs of the middle and poorer classes world wide.

      I'm 63 and I can still remember when our currency was backed up by real value, unlike now. For a long time it was a gold standard, then it went to silver. The idea being that you could walk into a bank give them your $1 or $20 bill and receive in return that value in gold or later silver. I still have a $1 'Silver Certificate'. On the face side at the bottom under Washington It states, "One Dollar In Silver Payable to the Bearer on Demand".

      Our money now reads 'Federal Reverse Note', it is simply a piece of paper that has no real value in terms of taking it to a bank and getting tangible value on demand. The Silver Certificate also stated at the top that it certified there was on deposit in the US Treasury that amount in silver.

      Of course that has nothing to do with mind control but then it has everything to do with control of a people.

      I have seen what I really consider a dumbing down of American in my life time. We have a culture of spend, spend, spend. You hear terms such a retail therapy, rich people with closets bigger than some apartments and small homes filled with clothes that are never worn.

      I would say that more than 95% of US citizens have an attention span of less than 5 minutes when it comes to solving the issues we have allowed our government to create or more correctly the powers that paid to buy our elected officials and put them in office.

      We have things like the FDA controlled by pharmaceutical companies and big ag companies like Mansanto. Companies like Pepsico can go into a town buy land sitting on top of aquifers, sink wells, pump all the water than want all the time, bottle it and sell it back to you. This goes even during times of drought when the citizens are forced to cut the use of water (don't water your lawn, no car wishing, etc.) Is not something wrong with than picture?

      Solution...It is not a simple change to another political party because you just get the same.

      In order to have change, real change there is a long list of things that need doing. Return to a gold or silver standard in currency, shut down the Federal Reverse and if need be decentralized banking. Forgive all debit world wide. Take away the status of having the same right under the law as a person that corporations currently have. That's only a beginning at fixing the money issues world wide. Will any of that happen, not as we currently know the world. When you control money you control a people.

      Frankly I'm all in for out and out armed revolution. Take back our country from the rich, from the Bushes and others. The only issue with that is the people in power would have marshal law enacted within 24 hours and would have no problem killing people that didn't crawl into a corner like a scared dog.

      Read people like Norm Chomsky, Naomi Klein.

      I suggest everyone read "Crossing the Rubicon". While it is about 911 and what went on it will give you a clearer image of what goes on behind closed doors. People need to stand up and demand real answers to real questions.

      Sorry about the off topic rant but you have to dig beyond what is displayed to the public by those with money to understand how they can and do use control over the masses.

    6. Lenny

      Great post, Bob. I was beginning to think everyone on this site was a conspiracy theorist and/or radical leftist. It's so nice to see a sane comment.

    7. socratesuk

      Thanks Lenny. I try and keep an open mind, and try and be honest whenever I can.

    8. Geoffrey Grekin

      One man's trash is another treasure if they understand its value.

      First of all, I too am not big fan of Alex Jones, If anything his views are often warped with unwarranted accusations.
      Nevertheless, I think the issue here is very important information in this documentary.
      Both MKUltra and Project PaperClip are well documented as official accounts released by the general public.
      Whats more, It isn't a stretch to believe that certain organizations and charities have influence over the education system.

      Can we believe in absolutely everything that these talking heads say? obviously not.
      But the fundamental message of propaganda persuasion and manipulation of society and the limitations it enforces on ones own individual thought is something that is not to hard to fathom yourself.

      You can even to test with yourself and ask yourself vital questions about your own life changing decisions, thoughts, ideas and aspirations and ask where did it all come from?

      If you were to be honest with yourself you would realize that many of your daily actions are dictated by laws, customs and material desires are feed from the external world.

      The illusion of choice is simply that, and illusion, we often have very little freedom of choice.

      You don't need to take my word for it, I believe a large part of this was already illustrated by the famous academic Micheal Focault,
      You may want to pick up some of his books, but just a warning it isn't an easy read.

    9. socratesuk

      Bob here.

      Thanks for your post.

      I agree, that some material desires, probably come from advertising and clever marketing. But I am not exactly sure what your getting at.

      Its a pretty free world. Especially if you live in the west. Its not perfect, and there is to much debt in our life's. Whether its student debt or mortgage debt. I have come across Michel Foucault before. It wasn't easy reading I agree. But I think I understand his point about how power can be abused. Especially when knowledge and scientific knowledge are hijacked by political movements or other organisations for their own agendas.

      You seem to suggest your not truly free?

      In what sense?

      To much debt?

      Lack of jobs?

    10. Rampage

      Lets count the fallacies and rhetoric from your comment .. First is: "Alex Jones can not really be taken seriously"- ad hominem. Second up: "The main idea is "we are not free as individuals". (whatever that means)" - is Down Playing. Next: "The people in the doc don't really define anything but just rant about "freedom" ." lets just call this weaseling.. finally, "The ending doesn't really conclude anything either. Waste of time really." also weaseling to say the least. Yay for ignorance and poorly made examinations. -Sarcasm :)

    11. socratesuk

      Argue your case!

      This is a free and open forum.

      Do you not feel free then...?

    12. Rampage

      I'm responding to Bob's comment. I haven't asserted anything else(my argument is there already). Though If I did I would point out that this documentary is informative and well worth a watch, as it shows a lot about the history of mind control. The more you know the better, and obviously some things may not be true, but it would be better to show those untruths then to just say for instance: "Alex Jones can not really be taken seriously"

    13. socratesuk

      I am Bob. (long story, different username)

      Alex Jones was banging on about how the US was building FEMA concentration camps not that long ago! Come on....[Alex makes a living from conspiracy theories... its his job!] Yes I will give him 5 mins of my time [20 or so in this case] but he rarely provides evidence, its just rants. How much does he make every year from ranting?...

      The historical part on eugenics was a fair point, and was the only factual part in this doc.

      The rest is just rants about the poorly defined word that is "freedom".

      So do you not feel free then?
      Your pretty free now aren't you?
      We having an open debate?
      Its not censored?
      You presumably have a laptop, clothes, smart-phone, access to higher education, running water and electricity?
      You can Wiki pretty much anything?

      Let me guess you rarely get pulled over?

      You have lots of media channels to choose from? (all be it the main ones are pretty poor and very biased)

      So what drew you to watch the doc?
      And what did you conclude?

    14. beYOU

      Have you ever read Charlotte Iserbyl's works or Caroll Quigley's Tragedy & Hope? These books were written decades before Alex Jones began his ranting. Project paperclip, bluebird, mk-ultra were REAL. Just some food for thought.

  38. avd420

    I was very intrigued with this doc within the first few minutes. Then it went all conspiracy-theory very quickly.

    1. TheGunslinger

      Right at the 20 minute mark, I noticed the change. A red flag went earlier too when a woman said that we are not animals but individuals and were made in the image of god.

    2. ~Oliver B Koslik Esq

      I suppose for some people this may fill in a lot of blanks. Perhaps for others it can create them.

  39. dufas_duck

    The irony is that those who obtain 'their way' will also condemn those who don't think and act as they. Those who was the old 'norm' will become outsiders. No matter what culture rises, those that think out of the new prescribed box will be ostracized. It is just a recurring circle.

    There are many 'frog' pots that slowly boil away. Whomever attains the loudest pulpit will use the same methods as those who came before to achieve, to retain their sociological control.

    1. Nwttp

      Been to the future have we?

    2. dufas_duck

      Nope, just seen history repeat itself many times..

      Just as if the governing party reflects your views, you will discredit anyone whose views are not the same as yours in order to keep your view in control....and most likely will be reflected in any comeback that you might post in answer to to this comment....

  40. dmxi

    the best working system consists of individuals not knowing that they're implemented into a caste....fenced in without a physical fence & a seductive carrot dangling in front of their narrowed sight spurring the belief of freedom of choice.i bow to it's devilish ingenuity as it is a simple construct with complex accuracy.

    1. ZarathustraSpeaks

      We put ourselves in that "caste". If we do not have the choice whether to submit ourselves to whatever system exist then no choice exist in the first place. We are therefore a "leaf on on the wind".

    2. dmxi

      the mindset is programmed via an efficient (euphemism) education system.check how it was financed & implemented (esp. USA & GB).you must also consider that not everyone has the brain or the brawn (not to speak of financial independence) to free themselves of the shackles of social pressure which intertwines our culture.

    3. Bad Conduct

      The fact that you understand how programmed you are just proves how little function in society that programming has. People live within the laws of physics. If being controlled was so easy, we wouldn't be watching films about it. Or our parents wouldn't have been watching studies about in, done in the 60's and 50's.

      Do you really think the people of North Korea have no idea what's going on? There are certainly numerous cases of brain washing (which can be studied very openly), but the "system as a whole" is not one example. Capitalism is no different than religion. It works because people believe it works. If the people in charge didn't believe in it, it would quickly show it's flaws and fall apart.

    4. dmxi

      you're missing the point by using me or/& yourself as an example.the broad consensus of labeling rejects of conformity is minute to the mainstream ideology which carries this system.the information flow via internet seems threatening to the status quo as it is in contradiction to the official media outlet spins & is being turned into a data collecting weapon against it's users.

      "capitalism is no different than religion .it works because people believe it works" is an error as it was subtly implemented as a part of democracy which couldn't be further away from the truth & with "If the people in charge didn't believe in it, it would quickly show it's flaws and fall apart", you actually speak in my favour as it's flaws are currently working towards it's downfall which can be felt in greece,detroit,ireland,spain,portugal etc & not to speak of the rape in third world countries where our stranglehold doesn't even need our education system as their position is just perfect for exploitation!
      ...and besides,the efforts of our rebellious parents?where did that end?a perfect example of drowning,drugging & dumb-founding honourable aims!

    5. dmxi

      ps:look up public relations & how marketing functions & you will see programming in effect.

    6. ZarathustraSpeaks

      If you dont believe people have the "brain or brawn" to resist financial or social influences then freedom can only exist in a vacuum where influences do not exist. All educational systems have some kind of agenda or slant because they are created by other humans with their own perspectives. Mind control comes in many forms including promoting the delusion that if we can "just get beyond" the current system to a new system(of my choosing of course) we can escape our bonds of being human and find the real path to enlightenment.

    7. dmxi

      read my comment again as you clearly have misunderstood the brain & brawn part(emphasis on "not everyone" & not "everyone"!)
