So if your looking for answers or even just some insight this isn't a bad place to start.
Don't believe the brainwashed talking heads on the news networks, do your own research!
Neo-Conservative philosophy being a system that lies to it's citizens in order to establish a looming fear and darkness that we all must fight. This system really just creates a government that spends far too much money on buying weapons and fighting wars everywhere. An fool can see such a system can only bankrupt a country, and create neurosis on it's citizens after being told how much fear they should have.
The Islamic Fundamentalist movement is also absolutely bogus and obviously destructive. Another movement based on creating fear and does absolutely nothing beneficial. A great example of how and why religions decay any reason out of the brain and inflame violence. All religion is capable of such rottenness, the creators of this wonder movement are just ahead of their time.
These shows do a great job showing how both movements have many similarities. I found the most troubling to be how these philosophies are based on a pessimistic attitude toward freedom, a complete distrust of people and their individual freedom. Any movement that distrusts peoples freedom and how they want to use it is clearly fascist and dumb. These shows present a great story of the great illusion. The visual quality of the DVD is poor, not the source material, looks to be a bootleg.
