“Today Adolf Hitler’s autobiography cum Nazi manifesto is still sold all over the world, under the counter, on the internet or simply at the bookshop. This 700 page book, published in 1925, was re-edited numerous times since the death of the author. How was it written? Was Hitler really the author? Were the war and the Holocaust truly inscribed in its pages? This documentary plunges deep into the secrets of Mein Kampf. A simple book of paradoxes: famous but unknown, fascinating and repulsive.”

I didn’t realize Adolf was such a lying little bitch…

…Not much of a man, that one.

1984 AUTHOR GEORGE ORWELL: A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT HIS LIFE AND LEGACY…

“George Orwell (1903 – 1950) A Life in Pictures is a docudrama about the life story of the British author, novelist, essayist, and journalist.

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right”. — George Orwell, 1984.

This documentary is important because his insights into human society are relevant to the current world political affairs. He was a man of strong opinions who wrote about major topics related to the political views and historical movements of the 20th century. His views are still very relevant to our times, the first quarter of the 21st century and it is also a warning.

His best-known novels are “Animal Farm” and “Nineteen Eighty-Four”. Both novels have been turned into films and have enjoyed immense popularity.

Orwell’s work had a great impact on popular and political culture. Many of his neologisms entered the language together with the term Orwellian, which describes a situation, idea, or societal condition identified as being destructive to the welfare of a free and open society.

The New York Times ranked Orwell second on a list of “The 50 greatest British writers of the 20th century and in 2016, his statue was installed in front of the BBC in London.

Some of his famous quotes:

-In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
-The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.
-Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.
-Double think means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.
– If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.
– In the face of pain, there are no heroes.
-Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.
– We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it.
-To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.”

Evangelical Christians in the USA…

“Evangelical Christians often have a huge impact on American politics. Many of these people are socially conservative, consider themselves patriots, and believe that Americans have a constitutional right to own guns.

This documentary explores the core beliefs of America’s fundamentalist Christians – including the concept of creation, as opposed to evolution. Our report features interviews with conservative evangelicals who, for example, believe that God created the world in six days about 6,000 years ago.

Our reporters traveled to the state of Kentucky to visit a Creation Museum and a Christian theme park that features a life-size model of Noah’s Ark.

Christian churches in the US play a major social role, especially in rural areas. They operate schools and universities, and organize music festivals that celebrate their faith.

Most fundamentalist Christians are opposed to abortion, pre-marital sex, and homosexuality. They believe that those who engage in these activities will be condemned to Hell. And some have formed paramilitary groups to defend themselves against those whom they perceive as enemies – including non-believers, Communists, and Muslims.”

In the first segment…all that money going straight into a trash can…

…Some would suggest, that is quite a fitting optic.

This documentary is a good overview, what it’s like growing up in this…I hope people recognize the various cultish practices employed here.

“Cizik School of Nursing has created a REMI Platinum Award-winning documentary film that tells the grim cautionary tale of nurses who participated in the Holocaust and abandoned their professional ethics during the Nazi era. The 56-minute film, Caring Corrupted: the Killing Nurses of the Third Reich, casts a harsh light on nurses who used their professional skills to murder the handicapped, mentally ill and infirm at the behest of the Third Reich and directly participated in genocide.”

…Inspired by the United States own eugenics program…

…I’m not surprised at all.

Actually, I’ve learned this in the past, so I already knew.

“Rural Japan has been on a long, steady decline for decades, but the pandemic now has some seriously considering a life outside the cities. For three straight months, the number of people leaving Tokyo outpaced those moving in—a new trend that could breathe some much-needed life back into Japan’s dying towns.

But in a shrinking country where, in some towns, empty homes can outnumber neighbors, can the country dream become a reality?”

“In Oymyakon, the cold controls everything. The town is located in eastern part of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia), which belongs to Russia and is know as the world’s Pole of Cold.

Nevertheless every morning the children march to school, the youngest just 6 years old. Making their way by temperatures of -50 degrees Celsius. Such circumstances would seem completely inconceivable for Europeans, but in the coldest town in the world, it is the beginning of an ordinary day. At least there is a school bus. But does it still work by temperatures of -50 degrees Celsius? The temperature controls the entire life here, not just the way to school. Running water? The pipes are broken, which is not surprising when the water literally freezes in the air. The inhabitants must melt blocks of ice in order to obtain water. How do the humans, the animals and the nature survive in such a unreal region? This film provides the answer.”
