A Must Watch
5 December 2017 | by SomeBlueDevilSee all my reviews

I stumbled upon this by mere coincidence during channel surfing PBS Thanks-Giving morning.

Being politically aware, I already knew most of what this production entails. However, it didn't take away from the sick feeling I felt in the pit of my stomach - the opposite. It confirmed everything and brought it home in full color, no filters. Things you won't see on American news outlets. They'd rather report on The Kardashians and American Idol than show you what's going on in the world. It's part of the dumbing down and conditioning of the American populace.

Since this goes back in time and ends in today's world, it is sure to offend people on both sides of the political spectrum. Which is why you see 1 star reviews criticizing this production.

I'm beyond that, having left "my" party last year. To me, it's two sides of the same coin which is another truth you get out of watching this.

It was available for free streaming online on the PBS website, until... today. Wow. I wonder why it was taken down... Not.

Anyway, watch it. And then be honest with yourself.
