Sixty-nine minutes of information this disturbing can feel like a lifetime. And again, I find the lack of “testicular-fortitude” in never even mentioning Barack Obama’s acquiescence to the true power structure of this country more than disappointing.
Still, Ethos: A Time For Change has a lot to say. And without question, these problems are the problems of both the left and the right. They are the way of life the vast majority of this country, the middle class, face on a daily basis. I cannot even offer you a dismissal of it being “conspiracy theory” because too much of the evidence is in the public record, and easily looked at by anyone with a computer.
Extras are non-existent, but who cares? Look into some of the sources cited, and you will find plenty to supplement the basic premise of the film. Ethos: A Time For Change achieves something much more powerful than simply being a picture full of political rhetoric. It shows us in no uncertain terms that “The American Way” is being corrupted by people who do not give a damn about any of us.
Left versus right is a pretty stupid diversion when the real agenda is for companies to make money by sending our children to war for no other reason than to make profits. At one point 70% of those polled thought Saddam Hussein was responsible for 9/11.
Funny, huh? Except that he had nothing to do with it at all, as Bush eventually admitted. But a hell of a lot of mothers and fathers lost their children to that lie. And I’ll end it here, except to say that I thank the Lord that my son was never called up to duty. Because guess what? His life is more important to me than Halliburton’s profits will ever be.
Ethos: A Time For Change will be released on DVD February 7, 2012.
