Did You Know?


Himself - Professor Emeritus, MIT: You have to get rid of this ignorant and meddlesome majority; control them, make them do the right things... all for their own good, incidentally. If they're allowed to participate, they'll make all kinds of mistakes, errors; but we, the responsible men, we know how to do the right thing - like get into the Vietnam War, and invade Iraq, and deregulate the banks so that everything crashes. We get everything straight.

Sush a shame more people haven't seen this
1 August 2017 | by kenmal-1See all my reviews

I came to this movie today (just missed the first few minutes) and was held transfixed for the rest of the movie. The sad fact is that - hardly anybody will have seen this and hardly anybody will care. The standards of journalism (the whole of modern media, unfortunately) have diminished to such an extent that the current President of America has managed to become acceptable to nearly half of America and yet he is a known misogynist and racist. The film spends most of its time showing how Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama cannot be trusted either - to represent the people. It is scary how much that un-elected people in power are in control and they do not represent the people either ie you and I can do nothing to stop them
