Twain Was Right: Both Sides Are Oligarchs
10 September 2016 | by (Quis Ut Deus?) – See all my reviews

Spoilers Ahead:

First, my header refers to Mark Twain's famous quote that in every election each side accuses the other of being lying thieves, Twain held they were both correct. Here, the republican oligarchs use a man of color, De Souza, to attack Obama. His central thesis is meritorious and, frankly, accurate. That Obama is a Neo-Anticolonialist explains his bizarre actions as president. Dinesh shows us the inexplicable behaviors that only his theory can explain: returning the bust of Churchill, giving Brazil billions for oil drilling while banning drilling domestically, his protection of Iran and Syria whilst toppling Egypt's Mubarek and Libya's Gaddafi. I commend the movie to you with these words of warning: yes, Reaganite Dinesh, who has an admittedly touching idealization about America, such as we see in the dreadful Elizabeth movies made by one of his countrymen, there are moments of what I call RDD: Republican Deficit Disorder. Dinesh refutes colonialism by showing the burgeoning economies of China, India and Indonesia. He says this refutes Barack senior's thesis that colonialism is a bad thing: rape of a nation. What Dinesh fails to tell you is that these 'burgeoning' economies are growing by selling their products to a bankrupt Occident teetering upon the precipice of trillions of debt. When America collapses, which it soon will, who is going to buy all these products?

Whenever you watch a documentary, be it Left or Right, you will often benefit only if you remember you are seeing but half of the truth. Yes, Barack senior's dreams were absorbed by the son, though, in truth, was it necessary to tell us he was a,"polygamous, drunken, abusive drunken socialist?" Dinesh makes many good points that will unravel the mystery of Obama's politics: his deep ambivalence for American power, his wish to pull it back, his concealed privileged background, and his loathing of the rich. The racial atonement that was the core of his election is my personal favorite piece here. Many people never understand MLK's main lesson: if you vote for or against someone predicated solely upon their skin color you are a racist. The best parts of this are: understanding how white guilt was the key tool Obama used to get Caucasians to vote for him. My brother was one such as this, I said,"If your only reason is it is time for a black man, you need to reflect upon your reasoning." Dinesh shows you his far Left mentors (Frank Marshall Davis, Said, Ayers, and Wright), he also retraces his Ivy League history growing up. As a philosopher, my objection is that while I concur with Dinesh, we see only half the picture. Why do you think the Republican oligarchs chose a brown skinned Indian to attack Obama? As the old saw goes, it takes two to tango. Just remember, when you watch it, there is plenty of extraneous insulting information: drunk, polygamist, deadbeat dad, things that do not advance the theory but are just hurling feces at your opponent (Ad Hominem).

I gave this an eight for Dinesh's hypothesis is brilliant in helping you to understand Obama's ideological view of the world: colonialists (Europe and America) have sucked the wealth out of the developing world. You will benefit from watching it, I bought Dinesh's books I was so impressed with this (The Roots Of Obama's Rage is actually a better book). The objections are the following: Dinesh has an admirable worship of his adopted culture, that is most flattering and endearing, yet is quite blind to the Republican oligarchs' parallel misdeeds. His saying that the developing world has adopted the 'free market' ideology and this is a refutation of socialism and anti-colonialism ignores that we are fueling that engine with our out of control spending. What will these countries growth look like when America isn't buying their goods because we are bankrupt? Don't believe me? Check out what happened to Indonesia and China during the crash of 2008 when we weren't buying things with our printing presses rolling? My duty, both as your reviewer and a philosopher, is to highly recommend this man's movie but warn you: this is one side of the picture. As Twain warns, remember both sides are correct: they both are lying, thieving elitists. Young people, after many decades, you will come to see that whether there be an R or a D in front of an oligarch's name, they are the same: money and power that is the whole enchilada. As Voltaire warned,"We shall leave this world as foolish and as wicked as we first found it."

He is a brilliant man, I agreed with his existential analysis of Barack Obama. I commend the movie to you though it does contain the aforementioned flaws: idealizing the Republican oligarchs and having a religious devotion to his new adopted country that, while admirable, biases his objectivity. A Good Documentary. Q.E.D.
