I am disturbed by the floating use of the terms 'we' and 'us' in different forms throughout this video. At several points it states 'this is what we have become', yet at the end it talks about how 'we are the Republic'. Confusing.
It also felt like it went from problem to success without offering any solution to the problem itself.
It might rev a person up or motivate them - to do what? I don't see an actual point to this video, other than to generate outrage - which in this society of 'dumbed-down Americans' can be very dangerous without giving a proper direction in which to assist in correcting the problem itself.
It all starts in church and ends at Walmart. There you have it, the results of a society that, from birth, is taught to believe and worship invisible things as a means of control and that is taught to shop, shop, shop till you drop as a means of earthly rewards. The proles of George Orwell's "1984" indeed.
George Orwell knew Amerikans - the proles - well:
"So long as they continued to work and breed, their other
activities were without importance. Left
to themselves, like cattle turned loose upon the plains of Argentina, they had
reverted to a style of life that appeared to be natural to them, a sort of
ancestral pattern. They were born, they
grew up in the gutters, they went to work at twelve, they passed through a
brief blossoming period of beauty and sexual desire, they married at twenty,
they were middle-aged at thirty, they died, for the most part, at sixty. Heavy physical work, the care of home and children, petty quarrels with
neighbors, films, football, beer, and above all, gambling filled up the horizon
of their minds. To keep them in control
was not difficult. A few agents of the
Thought Police moved always among them, spreading false rumors and marking down
and eliminating the few individuals who were judged capable of becoming
dangerous; but no attempt was made to indoctrinate them with the
ideology of the Party. It was not
desirable that the proles should have a primitive patriotism which could be
appealed to whenever it was necessary to make them accept longer working hours
or shorter rations. And even when they became
discontented, as they sometimes did, their discontent led nowhere, because,
being without general ideas, they could only focus it on petty specific
grievances. The larger evils invariable
escaped their notice."
