The End of America (2008)

Od rezisera The Trials of Darryl Hunt (2006) najnoviji dokumentarac po istoimenom bestseleru Naomi Wolf o downfallu SAD-a gde su tacno opisani konkretnih 10 koraka koji vode ka ukidanju osnovnih ljudskih prava i diktaturi. Odlicna poredjenja trenutnog stanja u Americi sa desavanjima u nacistickoj Nemackoj 30-ih godina, npr. paljenje Rajhstaga za koji su optuzeni komunisti i teroristicki napadi u Americi za koje je optuzena Al-Kaida. Koga zanima tematika awesome film. (73 min)

The End of America details the ten steps a country takes when it slides toward fascism. It's not a "lefty"tot tome, rather a historical look at trends in once-functioning democracies from modern history that are being repeated in our country today. It gives any reader (or viewer of the lecture) a much-needed history lesson and constitutional refresher. Most importantly, it puts the recent gradual loss of civil liberties in the U.S. in a historical context. The average American might not be alarmed at AT&T selling our private information to the Bush administration, but when this action is seen as part of a larger series of erosions and events, a pattern emerges with unfortunate consequences that become disturbingly clear.
