They have a dream. They are our nightmare.
6 September 2019 | by d-alstonSee all my reviews

None of this should come as a surprise to any informed viewer, but it's still a depressing, frustrating and annoying demonstration of how the human species can fail at having human values. On parade in these episodes are an endless number of ignorant, hubristic, deluded sociopaths who believe that their personal vision of Jesus has given them the right to take everything and control everything. When they're not patting each other on the back and hiding each other's crimes, the members of this worldwide cabal are plotting and scheming their way to riches and world domination where the vast majority of the human race will bow down to them as God's chosen people. They are disgusting and pathetic creatures, hypocrites and liars, wilfully ignorant fantasists and as morally bankrupt and greedy as any group of villains who ever lived. They're also extremely well-connected and currently hold the reigns of power throughout the world. Their survival depends on secrecy, so I'd advise everyone to watch this series, and to cast their future votes wisely if they happen to live in democratic societies. This entire bunch of depraved narcissists will discover that their imagined God will not protect them once the world shines a real light on their execrable activities and horrible beliefs
