Essentially the history described in this thread shows a circle of power changing hands. Always the upper class of high society taking advantage of the common man. This documentary displays the same attitudes of behavior the British had towards the Kings subjects in America. Only a break away was established so the American upper class could take advantage of the vast resources of the land and everything in it. For themselves, just like the Crown's attitude. Except, the Crown did fight back...but, that's a whole different kind of thread!Plutocracy is the first documentary to comprehensively examine early American history through the lens of class. A multi-part series by filmmaker Scott Noble, Part I focuses on the the ways in which the American people have historically been divided on the basis of race, ethnicity, sex and skill level.Plutocracy: Divide et Impera (Divide and Rule) includes sections on Mother Jones, the American Constitution; the Civil War draft riots; Reconstruction; Industrialization; the evolution of the police; the robber barons; early American labor unions; and major mid-to-late 19th Century labor events including the uprising of 1877, the Haymarket Affair, the Homestead strike and the New Orleans General Strike. The introduction examines the West Virginian coal wars of the early 20th Century, culminating in the Battle of Blair Mountain.
Interesting documentary because it depicts a shift in the American mind regarding morality. Before the Civil War most colleges and educational systems were based on a system of religious morality built on a Puritan foundation. After the Civil War corporate systems began to take over the educational curriculum. This left the country disillusioned in it's search for a greater understanding of God. The profit systems turned towards a scientific method to define a new 'god'. The Teutonic systems of psychology began to be applied usurping the older philosophical moral attitude towards education. Corporate mentally and rights of person began its ascendancy over the human being....

Nice thread OP. Interesting thread on American history. Although, I believe the battles fought in the revolutionary war are circular. Look at the term 'revolution' as an example. Principalities of greedy control take over and come to power then lose it. Then it comes around again in a constant revolution dizzying our senses. Keeping history as a subject is all important to break this mundane cycle of chaos. Yes, that old saying 'we are doomed to forget' seems to work its magic. Why? Because you're told it is so. Dumbing us all down by watering history to form fearful ideas of control. The more one learns the more questions get asked. A better informed society makes it difficult for any power to prevail. Although, in the end, any principal structure of control will defend itself with violence or the threat of sanction to survive. Actually punishment for articulate questioning cannot be allowed by greedy men and their fear of losing power.

Fear is in the way.
Look at L.A.
Resources to promote home schooling would go a long way to mitigate any fear associated with these powerful injections of media controlled ideologies! What is this fanatical frenzy doing these young minds? What kind of fear and fantasy will they face 25 years from now?
Not to mention the values of consumerism and what that contains. Economical Values? King George III was driven to madness and destruction from the debt incurred upon his subjects and then himself.
Provide the keys to self sufficiency!
Thomas is a Paine in the ass!
That's a good point! The Madness of King George the III. How much of the total national economy was devoted to fighting the wars during his reign? How many of his subjects, at home, became indentured and sent to the colonies? Seems as if his subjects were treated like currency to serve a wider, more wicked purpose than that of the Monarch. Who's soul authority is supposed to be divinely inspired to serve the well being of everyone, as best as possible. All well and good, the British constitution. Only, it became infiltrated by those who quantify everything. Who holds their covenant of the 'divine'?
It's all about how the economics of the world flow. Reminds me of the circulation system within a body. A black hearted collective group of veins and arteries pumping its lifeblood through the system. Who knows what the masters inject into the system from time to time! Perhaps they're removing ribs to form another entity. Taking economic DNA to form another body...

Not only equal that power...
But surpass it.
Property holders of everything. Just an elite few get that kind of power on this earth.
Never forget the deeper spiritual war for the soul of all mankind.
