The End of America

Posted by karmalily on October 30, 2008

The End of America is a documentary by Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern based on a best-selling book by Naomi Wolf. The film is about the loss of freedom and war-mongering America has encountered after September 11th.

I believe most Americans are still at a point where talk of an increasingly tyrannic and authoritarian government is met with incredulous feelings and denial. Obviously, no one wants to believe that we are losing our freedom and our democracy. It’s time we take our blinders off. The PATRIOT Act, the “Green Scare“, the loss of Habeas Corpus, no-fly lists that include peace activists, and an increasingly obvious lack of tolerance for peaceful protests. All these factors, plus many more, point to an America that is steadily declining into a national ruled by fear and corruption.
