Interpretation.
14 April 2014 | by (Iowa USA) – See all my reviews

I find it crazy that we all see the same piece of film and yet we interpret it differently. I didn't see this as an "anti communist" propaganda film. I saw it as a motivational film. Don't sit on your hands, get involved. As far as the cast commenting on the Declaration of Independence not being taught or not being followed then....welcome to today! A lot of teachers & most college professors do not teach. They indoctrinate. That is dangerous. Kids need to be given access to the material and interpret it themselves. As far as people not being involved in their government...I can understand why. Government IS corrupt! Period!! Dems, Repubs... Makes no difference. And the average person cannot stand up to the scrutiny of running for office. We are in a very sad state right now.....far much worse than the 1950's blacklists!
