Unbelievable.

Can you face reality?

Really look truth square in the face?

Watch this Moyers program then see if you really have been dealing with reality. This is one of the most honest programs about where we are at this point in time and what we can look forward to if we do not make immediate changes. It is sickening and it is scary and it is disgusting and it is now.

If you love and are loved watch this program and then share it.

I sent it out on twitter - you should as well as we all have different groups and individuals that we follow and that follow us.

Hi Truth,

Thank you for this forum post. Everyone needs to see this.

The "corporate war of aggression" intensifies every day. Everything for the corporation/dictatorship, and nothing for the people (not even drinking water).

Media blackout/isolation-plan, is proving to be a deadly weapon. Am always wondering about things happening, that we don't hear about.

Hey Nevada1. Truly a disgusting and scary and honest program - Hey?

I wonder if the people here watch it and then share it with those they love - will any of them start writing open letters of protest and chastisement to our government and copy them out onto social media for others to read and consider?

Hi DKA,

Agree.

The internet, is currently our only chance of getting any truth. The corporation/dictatorship is working on that.

I saw this show last night. Cities and regions of the country that have been devastated by neoliberal policies is what in store for most all us if this trend cannot be reversed. It's scarey.

I wonder what else has total media blackouts that we should know about.
