From an interview with James Cameron, director of the Terminator and Alien movies, amongst many others, and Tim Miller.
This is a great interview with Don Richardson, author of ‘Peace Child’. If you haven’t read this book, you have to. Should be required reading for every believer in my opinion.
Nobel Prize winner of economics in the 20th century, Milton Friedman, explains in this old video why entitlement policies, while well-intentioned, are fundamentally flawed at their root. Really wish we would pay attention to even recent history, let alone distant. We’re a very short-sighted people.
Shhhh …. it’s a secret. I didn’t quite catch what exactly Tommy Davis was offended by in this video, so offended it was worth walking out on an interview, being interviewed by someone who was not being offensive at all with his questions. If the answer to the question is no, that’s not correct, just say so. If yes, well, just say so. What’s the deal?
So are you offended by distortions of your beliefs, Mr. Davis? Then why not tell the interviewer that those are distortions? Or … are you offended they would ask about things that are supposed to be secret, but were leaked and are now public, and you are actually ashamed of those beliefs and won’t discuss them with ‘outsiders’? Why are you so defensive? Why is your organization so litigious? Mr. Davis, an official spokesman for Scientology, is quite the apologist for his faith, or rather, (let’s call it what it is) cult.
(For the record, I do not necessarily agree with every view in this interview. As far as Moore is concerned, I agree with him concerning the assessment of the problems, that bankers (though I would add the government intertwined with the bankers) have created the problems. But I do not agree with his assessment that capitalism, as a theory, is the problem that perpetuated this crisis … bankers and big government are the problem.)
It stunned me this was aired on PBS with Bill Moyers, of all places: http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/10092009/watch.html … really worth watching. These are not some right-wing, gun-slingin,’ militia crazies from the boondocks. In this 20 minute interview, former IMF Chief Economist Simon Johnson and Rep. Kaptur (D-OH) discuss the likelihood that a financial coup d’etat has taken place in our economy. Very fascinating and startling. I never thought I would be hearing these things coming from the likes of PBS with Bill Moyers. Glenn Beck? Sure, you would expect that. But PBS? The conversation in the financial industry is taking a major turn now.
