Shameless Film Plug: All Power to the People (I'm in this one), on the Murder of the Black Panthers

I caught the finished production of All Power to the People, and even I found it a little scary ... but highly informative. As one blogger observed, "its a long film and every minute of it is a revelation."

See the movie - it's one of the best political documentaries I've ever seen. Viewers logging into IMDB rate it A+.

YOU LOVE AMERICA??? Maybe you get a bad feeling from reading this, because you were brainwashed and CONDITIONED to feel repulsion when contemplating this. You will argue that there are half-truths and propaganda mixed with truthful reports of occasional misdemeneanors in this film. Sorry. My feeling is that this was so widespread that this film, if anything, is understating the true extent of the racism and conspiracies that was going on.

The racism has been reduced somewhat, but the mind-control is working better than ever. My proof: Why are you US-americans vehemently rejecting the words that I am writing here. Can it be that I touched the taboo? Raised the unthinkable? Put the needle in the lobotomised part of your brain?

If you just now thought: the bastard you are affected by mind-control (for the want of a better word). If you just were bemused, you are alright.
