Something You Should Watch...

While I agree with some of the points this video made, it relies to much on demagoguery. The dramatic music, the pictures of bloody people, etc. Why are they trying to entice me to believe that there are powerful, evil, greedy people that are trying to take over? Firstly, I already know that, and secondly, even if I didn't, trying to convince me of it wouldn't help. Show people INFORMATION (not propaganda), and let them decide. And doing that means accepting that some people might come to a conclusion that the maker of this video doesn't agree with.

This video treats people as though they are morons. I hate it when people try to *convince* me of things. *I* will seek out information, and *I* will decide. And anyone who is interested in genuine debate should get their mind around that idea.

This is also a preaching to the choir kind of video; it uses the phraseology that NWO believers toss around (and by the way, I'm not saying that I don't think there are people trying to implement a NWO, I'm just saying I'm aware of the phraseology that's used by people who discuss this kind of thing). The video doesn't explain any NWO concepts to the uninitiated, so what is its purpose?

Not meaning to be overly negative or bitchy, and I always appreciate it when people link me to things that make them think, but there are some of my critical thoughts about it.
