Unprecedented attestation of how the rectitude of society is broken.
After completing the 10 episode documentary by Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick, I must emphasize on the fact that American society, people and culture are something I will always defend, even though I am not an American. We must recognize the precious successes our species have accomplished (mentally, technologically, ecologically) through the unparalleled companionship, solidarity and help that Americans have given, and will always give. But we must understand that humans are the most contradictory organisms on this Planet, thus we will always give a radical opposite. The famous quote by Uncle Ben
"With Great power comes Great responsibility."
should be a reminder of our true purpose, the true purpose these men in government have to lead this world of us. We have utterly failed to truly take our Planet to a real civilization and not simply chaos and conflicts between ourselves. This film tells you exactly how the greed for power has changed the leading body of the world. The American people are not guilty but victims, just like all of us. They are actually our last hope to end this tyrannical hegemony spread by the rapacious institution we call fear, in cohesion with the political, economic and military establishments that maintains it. A form of government so primitive, we can easily look back to the Roman times and see an outstanding amount of similarities, with no true change in political, economic or social ideals. The only visual changes have been the vast addiction to commodities, making us more lazy than ever before, but also more unaware and indifferent to the true problems out there, problems we choose to ignore.
Nevertheless, where many see only darkness, chaos and hopelessness, Stone and Kuznick see enlightenment and hope. An era of knowledge, information and real interest is coming, and with this spread of enlightenment we will have another chance, just like in previous revolutions. This way of leading won't change by itself, it will most probably end abruptly since that is the only way to end something so radical. This documentary is the most revealing eye opener piece of information I have seen since War on Democracy. I recommend any person (15+) to educate themselves on this necessary truth of history, and how we can make history return to its original purpose, to learn from our mistakes, and not simply repeat them and agree upon them, like Napoleon described.
I give a long run of applause for this necessary historical piece of evidence that should be compulsory on every class of history worldwide.
10 out of 10 to this masterpiece.
The Unknown Known (2013)
A Masterpiece of Propaganda (Contains strong vocabulary).
This "amazing" documentary proves once more how the true potential of journalism and cinematography is utterly ravished by a point of view that simply uses rhetorical and inverse vocabulary and even lame psychology to explain the reasons why Neo-conservatism was right even though they were not. Clearly this person makes me hate Mr. Rumsfeld more than I already did. Now I have a totally new look towards him. Of more anger, betrayal and hatred. To a person that justified a war preemptively and then says that unknown known f*cking sh*t, to justify why he had to do it and, how innocent he is?
This is the lowest form of politeness I have reached in all my years. But after studying geopolitics, I find this documentary insulting to all those who lost their lives. To all the mothers who lost their sons. To all those kids who lost their fathers, and to all those innocent kids who are still dying in the name of "freedom" and echo of what these men have done.
Mr Rumsfeld f**k you very much.
