Watch this video, it is unreal. This another propoganda campaign aimed at our school children. This video is already being shown in schools and churches in the US. The message is that capitalism is evil. The video is a product of the Progressive Left, George Soros and The Tides Foundation. It is being used around the world and is available in several languages.
There is also another version that has been released by conservatives which debunks the crap that is in the Tides version. Watch that version on the link below:
Glenn Beck – Current Events & Politics – Video: Debunking Story of Stuff
Bottom line: America is in the biggest fight in its’ history to protect – Our way of life, our freedom, our liberties, our sovereignity and the American Dream! It is time to stand up and fight back! If you love this country and you are not involved yet – What are you waiting for? Contact your local school board and make sure that this propoganda is not being shown to your kids!
Restore the Republic, Reject the agenda of the Socialist Left!
“We remark with special satisfaction those [favorable circumstances] which, under the smiles of Providence, result from the skill, industry and order of our citizens managing their own affairs in their own way and for their own use, unembarrassed by too much regulations, unoppressed by fiscal exactions.” –Thomas Jefferson
Couldn’t agree more.
I’m just starting my own blog with a similar theme to yours. I’ll link to your blog on mine…I’d appreciate it if you would link to mine from yours.

I think I’ve seen it before, couldn’t sit through it again.
Speaking of thrift, is that what sending running vehicles to the scrap heap in the cash for clunkers program was? Didn’t seem too thrifty to me.
This is so stupid. If you buy into this, I hope one day you think for yourself.
I don’t buy things because of what’s “in”. She should have said people throw away perfectly useful stuff because of advertising, listen to the celebs, they are so cool!!! But doesn’t the Obama/Celebs advertising healthcare also trying to tell us what to think as well.????
Well the American dream is all very well for America…one country that sadly also shares the planet with the majority of humanity that live outside the USA.
The story of stuff is an attack on consumerism, not capitalism..the difference is likely to subtle for you to get.
For your information, what happens in America effects everyone on the whole planet in one way or another..so do the right thing and realize we too have a right to live in a healthy ecosystem.
While capitalism is not perfect it can do with many improvements, your attitude would be a good starting point.
Do you really have a problem with sustainable production ?
It is also interesting to note that Glenn Beck allows no comments to his flawed critique, along with carrying advertising for survival seed bank….clearly he is ok to gain revenue due to peoples fears of an ecological meltdown….oooh stupid me, he relies on peoples fears to make a living ! Bit like a predator at the school gate !
Thank you for thoughts, however you might be naive. The evidence is all around us that the UN and the Progressive Elite are trying to move us toward global governance. Ever heard of UN Agenda 21? Maybe you should research it. This will change our way of life, limit our freedoms, liberties and make us dependent on a government we will no longer control. Being good stewards of the earth and improving our national morality does not mean we have to surrender our sovereignty and freedom in the process. Wake up while there is still time.
David, I do not live in the USA, however while I certainly have got a feel for Agenda 21, in many respects I do not disagree with what you say there is a paradox….the premise for the action and the desire for one world government is sadly a reality.
By that I mean that the planets ecosystem IS beyond capacity in the manner we currently use its resources.
Unfortunatly the consumer mentality has played completly into the hands of the New World Order folks…..whose existance I do not deny and am also very aware of the subtle and multifaceted way they progress their agenda.
At the end of the day the dynamics of the current population world wide is beyond the biological carrying capacity of the planet Earth.
As to the curtailing of property rights and other such schemes, the sheeply will allow it to happen as they are really only interested in the consumer lifestyle that is a human failing in the modern context in which we live.
And no I do not support the New World Order, but until people challenge their politicians in an intelligent manner it will occur in time.
Have a look at the BBC series titled Century of self…quite amazing how the masses an be manipulated !!!
Thank you for continuing a civil dialogue. I will check out the video. I will still challenge that the planet can be managed to support the population through American ingenuity, intelligent planning and infrastructure to support the eco systems but that said… There is something very wrong with a group of Elitists usrping our freedom and property, much less suggest that “depopulation” become a central planning tool in fixing the problem. Again I would not be so fired up if the evidence of such plans were not everywhere. I have 5 kids and 6 grandkids – I can’t stomach the idea of a world that matches their blueprint. You are right it is time to get involved and hold the politicians accountable. We need a new plan and fast or we will be herded away like cattle to live in a very sad world.
I have no children an am 43 years old and my biggest fear is the way that not only the NWO folks, but religion believe they are all right and have the only answer to the issues and problems that face the humanity as a whole.
It is my view the majority believe that we are above what I refer to as nature, rather than part of it. Religion is given a “rights” card that makes them some how irreproachable, due to speaking for what ever God the represent..who created this planet upon which we live and rely upon for the life services. Yet the undeniable proof that God exists has yet to be established.
The bible that is widely used in Christianity is a translation by an English King (tell me he had no agenda, I’ll laugh a lot). I do not say that spirituality is not an essential part of being human. But it is my belief that religion of any kind is a tool to control the masses.
Back to where I started, many indigenous peoples of the world have been screwed up by the American dream (consumerism) and it would seem that few in Americans know this or give a damn and that is one of the reasons I support sustainable production fair trade and the like.
If I were in your shoes, my fear for my children would not be due to one world government , but the result of an ecosystem collapse and the dynamics of human behavior when it occurs…there are early signs of what will occur already.
Be well and strong, support local food production and do what you can to reduce your carbon foot print…these things are not just what the NWO wants its what humanity needs to survive, earth the planet will survive regardless of any government, sovereign or global.
The new plan needs to be at the grass roots level, with values that are common to all peoples on the planet…it is quite amazing that fundamentally we all want the same from life.
And yes we do live in a petri dish with finite resources, Glenn Beck is merely a fear monger.
While Agenda 21 may indeed threaten the rights Americans hold dear, it does speak to much of what needs to be done in order to allow humanity to exist in the long future, leaving aside the private property aspects. But let us not forget that rights have responsibilities.
Dave, sadly this is my last communication as I can not afford the time to conduct further writings and research to support what I may say.But will keep an eye to your comment
I appreciate your perspective even though I do not agree with all of it, I do agree we want many of the same things; we just don’t agree on how to get there. That said I’d like to clarify a couple of things. First I believe strongly in national sovereignty. However that does not mean that I think America has any right to run around the globe playing policeman or taking advantage of other countries in the world community. I, in fact believe that we should keep our noses out of the business of others and respect their sovereignty the same way I want others to respect ours. The founding fathers of this country long caution against foreign entanglements. George Washington said, “The great rule of conduct for us, in regard to foreign nations, is in extending our commercial relations to have as little political connection as possible… Why, by interweaving our destiny with that of any part of Europe, entangle our peace and prosperity in the toils of European ambition, rivalships, interest, humor, or caprice?… It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world”. He also said, “My policy has been, and will continue to be, while I have the honor to remain in the administration of the government, to be upon friendly terms with, but independent of, all the nations of the earth. To share in the broils of none. To fulfil our own engagements. To supply the wants, and be carriers for them all: Being thoroughly convinced that it is our policy and interest to do so”. Somewhere around WWI we lost our way and began to think we knew what was best for the world. I wish we could/would return to our founding principles.
Second, I believe a capitalist society can and should live in concert with nature. What kills me is the rich elitists are guilty of profiteering from all that is now wrong with the world but the rest of us will pay the price. As for the American Dream – the American Dream I grew up with was a set of values that basically said; work hard, live honorably and you will have the opportunity to suceed and prosper. I agree that it has evolved intio a perverse form of consumerism that has in many ways corrupted our culture into one that is greedy and selfish. That is where the really change needs to occur – it starts with family values and principles for living. Religion aside, our form of government was based on a moral fiber that is not alive or well in many of our politicians today. We need to find leaders that have principles and values to lead us out of the mess we have created. Again I do not think we have to change the entire system of government in the world to get there. In fact whrteher it is one world government or separate countries without leaders of substance (morals/principles/values) any form of government will fail. John Adams said, “Because power corrupts, society’s demands for moral authority and character increase as the importance of the position increases”. He also said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other”.
Thanks again for your well reasoned comments. I have enjoyed the exchange of ideas and hope to hear more from you as your time permits.
An Alternative to Capitalism (since we cannot legislate morality)
Several decades ago, Margaret Thatcher claimed: “There is no alternative”. She was referring to capitalism. Today, this negative attitude still persists.
I would like to offer an alternative to capitalism for the American people to consider. Please click on the following link. It will take you to my essay titled: “Home of the Brave?” which was published by the Athenaeum Library of Philosophy:
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.”
