My only criticism of the documentary is that there is perhaps too much stage time and not quite enough field work. But the points are well made nonetheless.
There was an Amazon reviewer that said this was nothing but "liberal drivel." I completely disagree. It is not right-wing nor left-wing. Those things don't matter...they are only there to blind us from the truth, methods of control put in place so that Americans will bicker and argue with each other, pitting brother against brother. For what it's worth, it is a warning, not only to the "young patriot" described in the title of the book, but to all people living in the U.S. Dictatorial government is coming - count on it. This will give you a historical perspective on what happens when people don't intervene in time and put a halt to fascism.
Black Water, the vigilante group with billions of dollars in their war chest has the ability to take down third world governments and yet owes no allegiance to our constitution.
Countless laws have been broken by our White House and yet no one is held accountable (illegal wire tapping of Americans; misleading Americans into the Iraqi war; torture; outing a CIA agent for political gain; etc.)
Corporations controlling all our media and therefore the flow of information "We The People" receive.
The tampering of our free elections (voter machine fraud, the Supreme Court illegally over riding our democracy and appointing George Bush President; the selective removal of Americans from voting lists; etc.)
Ms. Wolf's point is that these attacks are done boldly and deliberatly to frighten and intimidate Americans into doing nothing.
I found this book to be most terrifying because most Americans aren't even aware that there is a problem. There is a deliberate move in this country to wipe out middle class America (unaffordable educatuion, the end of pensions, the attempt of President Bush to convince Americans that Social Security is bad; unaffordable health insurance, etc.) I hope this DVD release acts as a wake up call to all Americans.
1) INVOKE AN EXTERNAL AND INTERNAL THREAT
The "War on Terror"
2) ESTABLISH SECRET PRISONS
The "Extraordinary Rendition" program
3) DEVELOP A PARAMILITARY FORCE
4) SURVEIL ORDINARY CITIZENS
Warrantless wiretapping, which Bush started before September 11, 2001, and not after, by the way(despite what the corporate media says)
5) INFILTRATE CITIZENS' GROUPS
The film FAHRENHEIT 9-11 depicts one example, the peace organization that learned a member was undercover law enforcement
6) ARBITRARILY DETAIN AND RELEASE CITIZENS
The 2004 Republican convention, where New York City police arrested people just for being on the street
7) TARGET KEY INDIVIDUALS
Bush administration whistle-blowers lost their jobs and careers
8) RESTRICT THE PRESS
The moneyed interests controlling governments such as Bush's have bought up major media
9) CAST CRITICISM AS "ESPIONAGE" AND DISSENT AS "TREASON"
This relates to step 8, press restriction, as the corporate-controlled media follows Bush administration-dictated talking points, personally attacking Bush critics because it is impossible to refute their arguments
10) SUBVERT THE RULE OF LAW
