Do you really think you can
handle the truth about America?


If so, then you must watch the documentary Ethos, narrated by Woody Harrelson. This film makes 2016: Obama’s America look like Sesame Street. I’m not a fan of Harrelson’s political ideology or his performance, but the content of this film was like finding the missing pieces to a puzzle that have been lost for 20 years.

The most eye-opening moment for me is when I realized that it is physically impossible to maintain or increase our standard of living through the consumption of natural resources when world population doubles every 35 years!

It shows that our government wants us to stop worrying and keep shopping. What they don’t tell us is that if we don’t change, we die. Our biosphere is in decline and life cannot be sustained on this earth if we continue poisoning our own air, water and soil. The number one offender: The automobile.

A significant date is introduced: 2015. That is when they predict we will either reach “peak oil” or production will not meet demand. Either way, prepare for oil to double this decade, whereby creating horrific inflation on consumer goods, especially necessities like food, water and clothing.

The film also gives convincing reasoning through insiders at the Pentagon that we didn’t go to war in Iraq or Afghanistan to fight terrorism, but to occupy these countries and protect free flowing oil to America. It addresses the conflict of interests in politics, the Federal Reserve, corporate power, how the news media is controlled, poverty, warfare, pollution and a gullible American public.

Unlike a doomsday prophecy, this film gives a simple solution to these problems, but I fear Americans will be too lazy and self-centered to make the effort to change. As we watch our standard of living decline over this decade, we will either wake up and take action or let our children and grandchildren suffer the consequences of our denial and complacency.

This critique has barely skimmed the surface of the blood-filled meat in this 78-minute documentary. Whatever viewpoint you hold, this will either change it, as it did mine, or validate it.

I don’t care how you do it, just watch it for yourself and you make the call! I caught it online at Netflix; watched it twice just to make sure I wasn't dreaming...

Denny,

I find it hard to believe that you have been swayed by a propaganda piece from the liberal left. I have not seen the film, but from what you say, it sounds like just that. No one can predict the future, especially not so far out. We survived the depression & FDR, we survived LBJ & the great society and we will survive Obamacare. Don't fall prey to their rhetoric.

It is impossible to judge me fairly, reasonably or rationally about this post unless you have seen the film.

There is a term for people who pronounce judgement, make choices and take action before receiving accurate information...one such term is "American"... and exactly the reason we have the current President.

If you fell for the selling and promotion of the Vietnam war or the war on terror in Iraq & Afghanistan, then you are buying much of what our government is selling, mainly through the news media. Without the support of the people, it would not have happened.

If you want to know how they control the American people, then watch the film. I never said I agreed with everything it said, but this future is not "so far out" as you may think...

I have not yet seen the flick either, but I intend to -- you are aware that Woody Harrelson's father is serving a life sentence for attempted murder against a federal judge, correct? A very interesting case in itself.

Truth is still truth whether it comes from the right or the left. For those of you who cannot see because of political biases, well, maybe you're playing the game a little too hard.

Fascinating info about Woody Harrelson's father:

I watched Ethos with interest, agreed with the Federal Reserve data and other topics, but pooh-poohed the global warming stuff -- however, I do agree that the world's resources are dwindling...

"Given man's rapacious nature, at the current rate of population explosion, most of the Earth's biological resources would be exterminated within decades. Those that remained, beyond cultivated crops and animals, would be deep within the sea or in barren cold places where pollution had not spread because man did not choose to live there. The cataclysms, of course, will change all that, more than evening the odds between man and nature. But were it not for the cataclysms, mankind would utterly destroy the biological diversity of this world, plundering the seas until chain reactions set in to decimate populations not even targeted by man. Penguins, who eat fish, cannot migrate to warmer climates if the fish decline - they can only weaken and succumb to the cold. Kelp beds, the great oxygen machine of the Earth, are already damaged by the harsh rays of the Sun which the depleted ozone layer is failing to filter. The kelp beds stand at the base of the food chain for many thousands of life forms, in one form or another. For instance, some life forms require the kelp beds for protection, shelter. On land man's senseless greed has left so many scars we need not retell the tragedy.

Where ecological battles are sometimes won, the line held, the steady press of teeming masses of humans would soon turn the tide. Everything would be sacrificed, as has always been the case. Except for isolated instances of land purchased for parks, or set aside for wild life, when has man not simply rolled over the landscape like a horde of locusts, leaving in its wake dead waters reeking of noxious chemicals, top soil blown to the winds, forests clear cut for the convenience of greedy operators, and wildlife out in the open and without protection hunted to extinction for sport. Will these trends continue after the Transformation? They will, but due to setbacks during the cataclysms, they will essentially stop, and as attitudes will change during the Transformation, raping the Earth will cease. The Earth's natural bounty will be allowed to renew, the new race of man living in harmony, not clashing, with nature." Per the Zeta's

Those Zetas are much more optimistic than myself...

I tend to believe Biblical prophecy, as far back as Daniel, Ezekiel and Isaiah; which is notagood...

The post at 12:47 is a cut and paste job -- What does a sorority at Baylor have to do with global warming and what the heck is the Transformation? Inquiring minds want to know.

At least half of the global warming literature I read says global warming is a hoax! Ah, but the choir keeps on singing that same old Al Gore tune. You know why? Because the globalists believe a carbon tax is a great idea and the UN wants your money. Ha!

"What is the Transformation? The Earth is undergoing a subtle transformation, as the Transformation is now. This Transformation has been progressing for at least this century, and will go for at least a century more. Transformations occur for many reasons. One reason is that the great majority of the entities native to the planet have reached an orientation decision, and are ready to proceed with other lessons, and 3rd Density planets are checked periodically as to their readiness for harvest in this regard. Another reason is administrative, and that is why the Earth is undergoing its Transformation now. The majority of those on Earth have not yet reached their orientation decision, but will be moved to another planet, as the Earth has been designated as a future home for Service-to-Other oriented entities. The coming pole shift will expedite this process simply by the fact that 90% of the populace will die, either during the shift or shortly thereafter.

To qualify for Service-to-Other orientation, an entity must consider others as often as the self. To qualify for Service-to-Self, the entity must focus on the self 95% of the time, almost exclusively. Where it may seem that these individuals would stand out, some very diplomatic and cultured people are of this category. They are able to disguise their self interest in condescension to others. They are able to disguise their self interest as the interests of the other. During 3rd Density, entities must decide their spiritual orientations - Service-to-Self or Service-to-Others. Most, the vast majority, decide the latter on almost all 3rd Density worlds. This decision, or the lesson of 3rd Density as it is called, needs to precede almost all other lessons, as mixing the two spiritual orientations together creates chaos and thus other lessons cannot proceed. Many humans on Earth are choosing the Service-to-Other orientation, and mid-incarnation are thus joining the ranks of the Service-to-Others. This occurred in the past as well.

The world involves an increasing separation, by orientation, as the Transformation proceeds. The mix of Service-to-Other and Service-to-Self, and the proportion of undecided, will not change much as the cataclysms near and times get tough. Where some of the undecided will rise to the challenge and move into the Service-to-Others category, there will be others, operating in the Service-to-Other mode when things are comfortable, who will find their self focus increasing as their insecurities increase. Some, a very few, who are operating in the Service-to-Self mode, will find the troubled times pulling at their hearts, and will move back into the undecided category. A greater number will find their selfish nature accentuating during difficult times, and like those on the Titanic, will push all others aside to save themselves. They will move into the Service-to-Self category. So you see that the numbers will move about a bit, but essentially remain unchanged." Per the Zetas

OK, well all that sounds pretty far out to me. I still have no idea of who the Zetas are (a drug gang in Mexico?) and why I should believe a word of what they say. The Earth in transformation? The Earth is always in transformation. A pole shift? I'll believe it when I see it. 90% dead and gone? Dude, you need to explain how you have allowed yourself to believe what truly sounds like a narrative straight from the globalist's playback.

Give some references on these Zetas, OK? I'm a well-read guy and I've never heard of them. Additionally, Like Denney, I am a follower of Jesus Christ and profoundly believe the only way to salvation and understanding is through Him. So, do your Zetas swing some weight with the Lord of the universe?

More info please?

To those on the cusp out there, don't listen to all the chicken littles of the world. Put your faith where it will do some good.

So many false prophets -- so little time to disprove them all, case by case...
