Controversial documentaries & movies that everyone should see
A Listmania! list by Kyle Tolle(Phoenix, Arizona USA)
The list author says: "Corruption in big business, interference and unethical behavior by the government, disregard for the best interests of the American public, a total lack of morality and integrity. It's all here plus much more in these highly recommended programs."
"Is Aspartame really safe? Is it good for you? (It's actually poisonous) See how the FDA, the government, and big business could care less about your health and instead how they make money at the expense of the public at large."
"Gotta love those genetically modified (GM) foods. And what big companies are doing to seeds, crops, farmers, and who knows what else. It doesn't spell better days for the appetites and health of the American public, that's for sure. Organic products are looking better all the time."
"Remember that energy crisis in California years ago that just about laid waste to the power companies and skewered the public? Did anyone really think that wasn't caused on purpose? Under 'corruption' in the dictionary, it says: see Enron."
"I've shopped there. It seemed alright. But there is a whole other side of Wal-Mart that screams: We don't like to share profits with other companies! We also hate unions and don't exactly give fair treatment to our employees! We're coming to your town with a Super Wal-Mart and all the mom & pop businesses and whatever else are going bye-bye!"
"The virtually silent, non-polluting, very economical electric car in the 21st century. But you won't see it, ANYWHERE, because Big Oil and the government shake hands and share big money and that's what is most important. Forget about your health and your wallet and what's best for the public. Go figure."
"It has been said the CIA has a black budget of unlimited funds. Really? And much of it comes from American taxpayers? If so, why does our second largest intelligence agency need to smuggle tons of drugs and use those profits to further fund CIA operations and who knows what else? What's really on the hidden agenda?"
"Is Federal law enforcement above the law? What really happened at Waco, Texas? It sure wasn't what the media told you. Or the FBI and the ATF. The Rules of Engagement will tell you the truth though and will open your eyes about how a cover-up is orchestrated. You'll also begin to see how frail our so-called honest, safe, and reliable federal bureaucracy really is."
"Let's face it, the American government has a terrible track record concerning the treatment of Native Americans through the decades. Incident at Oglala takes a close look at turbulent and ultimately deadly events in the 1970's on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Once again, the U.S. government gets their hands dirty but treats it all like 'just another day at the office'."
"Here is Exxon's view of Alaska and her environment: We'll spill 11 million gallons of oil in Prince William Sound but we do care about wildlife and the clean-up effort. But, we won't blame our own people who ran the ship aground that caused this disaster. Oh, and we almost forgot, it's ALL ABOUT THE MONEY and we really DON'T care about anything else except that. And we're not sorry after all."
"Does anyone still believe that joke called the Warren Commission? And is anyone still naive enough to think there was a 'lone shooter' involved in JFK's death? A magic bullet? Are you kidding me? This documentary may be all the evidence needed to prove that the U.S. government LIES to the public and the FBI is not an ethical law enforcement agency. There is much more. See this and learn a lot."
"'And The Band Played On' is a movie based on events of when the AIDS crisis first came to America. It makes my listmania list because the CDC, who was supposed to help with AIDS research and is also another government entity, took the path of least resistance and didn't do nearly enough to help this medical crisis. Other things were more important. As usual."
"That Big Mac was great! The Whopper with cheese is the best! A double quarter pounder hits the spot! The health hazards you've suspected about fast food for so long? They are real. Discover the nutritional disasters of fast food in this great documentary."
"You MUST believe everything FOX news tells you! Every bit of it is true! WRONG ANSWER. Now, imagine there is objectivity in the world and that you have an open mind and refuse to be lied to. See, that feels better right? And last but not least, when it comes to FOX news, change the channel and look for better programming. You deserve it."
"We've all heard the saying 'don't believe everything you hear'. When it comes to the mainstream media now days, you should take that advice seriously. Integrity and fair reporting are right out the window. The media is no longer in the business of reporting the news, they're in the business of corrupting and distorting the news. A sad commentary in our time."
"After seeing this docudrama, I asked myself, who is going to protect the public from the FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies? That may sound a little extreme but after Ruby Ridge and Waco and other serious incidents involving the FBI, the ATF and others, there is ample reason to worry about the poor condition of federal law enforcement in this country. This film is a wake up call."
"September 11, 2001 adequately showed that our national security is tenuous at best. And 6 years later it is still somewhat fragile. 'On Native Soil' points out, among other things, that our government can't and won't be truthful with the public and the failures of our intelligence agencies are glaring. Every American should see this documentary and be enlightened (and scared too)."
"You know that private war currently being waged in Iraq? Your tax dollars aren't for helping out the U.S. troops with what they need. Your taxes are really for supporting all the private contractors along with their greed, fraud, waste, and corruption. The scope of what is actually happening with war profiteers in Iraq is just appalling."
"The United States is the most obese country in the world. With our multitude of fast food restaurants around every corner, it's no wonder. Fast Food Nation is an unpleasant and sometimes disturbing look at several different scenarios involving the fast food industry."
"America is the most incarcerated country in the world. Plus, we have more minorities locked up than anyone else and the reasons for that are disturbing. Crime doesn't pay but our legal system doesn't either; it doesn't pay attention to fair treatment or representation to anyone who might need it."
"Here's the long and short of it. The Federal Reserve is really a huge, private bank and is no way controlled by the U.S. government. But it totally controls our failing currency. Next, you aren't legally obligated to pay income tax. And finally, America is moving towards becoming a police state. Class dismissed."
"Yes, it's true. The government and the media lied to you about why we invaded Iraq after September 11, 2001. This fine documentary exposes the real stories behind it all and shows you how the terrible deception was pulled off. EVERYONE should see this."
"With the government eroding our rights and civil liberties as fast as they can, they're reducing the Constitution to nothing more than just a piece of paper. It's time for America to take off the blinders and get angry about how we're being treated by an abusive system. We operate by a democracy and we should preserve and protect that."
"Because Indian reservations are rich in resources, the government finds it perfectly acceptable to use cruel and unethical methods to relocate 10,000 Native Americans off of their land and into squalor. The companies mining those resources are basically robbing the Indians blind and are destoying sacred lands. Outrageous."
"So we're running out of oil. There's other types of energy that will take its place and work just fine right? In a word, NO. Nothing even comes close to the energy output of oil and we are nowhere near ready, technologically, to imagine a life without it. In fact, on a global scale, we could be in deep trouble only a few decades from now."
"Is the national and personal debt in America really that bad? It's pretty ugly and it's getting worse. How about the activities of credit card companies, banks, the government, and lending institutions? Some accurate words to describe these entities would be unethical, manipulative, dishonest and greedy. 'Maxed Out' is an enlightening look at a financial meltdown occurring in America."
"Financial debt is practically an industry in America nowadays. It hurts the public a lot and credit card companies, banks, and lending institutions are making big money with their inflated interest rates, excessive late fees, and greed. So much for the honest and hard working consumers in this country and goodbye to ethical financial practices."
"Would you believe it if someone told you that a few massive and powerful private banks that control the Federal Reserve also shape many of the events that occur in your lifetime? Evidence might just exist that a sinister global elite controls and dominates world events."
"If you're a politician and you just have to have things your way, go ahead and hijack the government like Tom Delay tried to do. Be careful though and make sure you don't tell the American public because it is best to hurt them altogether rather than help them. Since when did we citizens ever matter anyway? Is the Constitution still important in this country?"
"It isn't talked about in open circles but it happens all over the world quite often. Torture is as alive and well today as it was centuries ago and many developed countries are supporters and/or practioners of it. What about police brutality and excessive force? These incidents happen far too often and you'll learn more about that here also."
"Just how far will governments go to terrorize their own citizens into submission? Did the U.S. government really tell the whole 'truth' about what happened on September 11, 2001? The information on this DVD is truly shocking and it should be seen by all Americans. Forewarned is forearmed."
