By controlling citizen access to information media controls what we think
r_oldham8 August 2017
Warning: Spoilers
This film consists primarily of rock-solid interviews with crusaders for individual liberty. They describe in detail how important stories are either ignored or spun beyond recognition, particularly with respect to the Fast and Furious scandal. Agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms ordered Phoenix-area gun shops to ignore obvious straw purchases of semiautomatic guns in contravention of federal law, ostensibly so the agents could track the flow of weapons to Mexican drug cartels.

Instead, the weapons were not tracked at all, with the cynical intent at ATF to rack up hundreds of deaths in Mexico which could be blamed upon "loose American gun laws" and thereby justify a crackdown on American gun owners. The plan came undone when Border Patrol officer Brian Terry was killed with a Fast and Furious gun. Whistleblowers within ATF got the word out literally before Terry's body was cold, leading to extraordinary efforts by the Obama administration and its allies in the main stream media to cover it up.

Their stories are told with such candor that they cannot be ignored.

Share this with your children & grand-children
Wes Howard5 August 2017
"Honey, just give me an hour..." This is, thankfully, the culmination of several years of very hard work and it's so important that it be shared with those who may not understand the effort the US Government goes to in order to keep them behaving how the US Government wants them to.

If they are getting their information from their iPhone or ANY of the mainstream media outlets who pander to those in power - PLEASE - get them to devote an hour to watching this. Hopefully, a light will come on; something which is often unavoidable when facts collide with perceptions. Then encourage them further to fact-check what they hear in this film.

The individual commentary featured in the film is as solid as a rock, with individuals who - absent any political party agenda - are devoted to the (not) original idea of individual liberty and that government, such as needs to be, is to serve the people not the other way around. Continuing to foster this is at the foundation of preserving a life & culture that works (so far) better than anything previous in recorded history. But it's in true jeopardy and this film all too easily, and sadly, documents that.

My fervent hope is that, somewhere along the way, there will be a courageous distributor who recognizes the value in this seminal work and will raise their hand to aid in it achieving a wider audience.

Should be required viewing for all school children, and more
anqpoweruser2 September 2017
Should be required viewing for all school children, and frankly, anyone under 40. For the rest of us, it's our responsibility to make sure our children, grand children, nieces, nephews, cousins and all loved ones see this.

Buy 10 copies and give them out for gifts.

This should be seen by everyone, particularly the young

Warning: Spoilers
I've appreciated the messages of most of the people featured in this documentary for many years, but until now, their wisdom was something that had to be sought, like diving into the internet in search of pearls of wisdom. Now, for the first time, their important perspectives, understanding and advice can be found in one place. It's like finding a treasure chest filled with pearls of wisdom. If you realize that you're hearing almost nothing but lies from government, mainstream media, Madison Avenue ad agents, K Street lobbyists, Wall Street banksters and Hollywood culture vultures, this is the mother of all truth bombs. Please share it with others who may not be awake... particularly the young who are inheriting this mess that mostly happened on our watch.

Excellent
joe-8039010 August 2017
This is a must see DVD if you love liberty.

The people interviewed voices needs to be heard through out the land.

Please get this DVD and tell every freedom loving person you know they must also.

It is way past time that there is truth out there to offset this constant barrage of fake news.

Great
joehj10 August 2017
This is the most genuine and raw take on the concept of liberty that I have seen on the screen. The people interviewed are incredibly eloquent, informed, and passionate about the threats they see as the result of a burgeoning tyrannical and bureaucratic state. This should be required viewing in every public education venue. Why not ten stars? The production flair was lacking(still very professional- especially since I believe it was entirely crowdfunded) and there wasn't any effort to present dissenting viewpoints (the presence of alternative views would have made aided those making their appeals for liberty- however, almost every viewpoint presented on film and television is a stark contrast to the views found here). Take an hour of your time and watch this film, you will see that these individuals (some of whom have been labeled as extremists and bigots by the splc and others) are incredibly well versed, loving, articulate, and courageous. It takes no courage to adhere to the narratives of the media, significant courage is required to step into the light and share opinions that will see you marginalized, mocked, and misrepresented by others. Being able to see that kind of courage is reason enough to view this film and challenge what you are instructed to believe. Watch this film and share it with your family, friends, and neighbors- the views shared are too important to not be discussed.
