New Film by Naomi Wolf - End of America!
#1
See it before America Ends!...

The End of America: hits stores in early 2009.

From the award-winning filmmakers of The Devil Came on Horseback and The Trials of Darryl Hunt, Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern, THE END OF AMERICA, a stunning indictment of the sweeping policy changes enacted during the Bush Administration. Made in collaboration with best-selling author Naomi Wolf (The Beauty Myth), the film makes a chilling case that American democracy is under grave threat. Investigating parallels between our current situation and the rise of dictators and fascism in other once-free societies, Wolf uncovers a number of deeply unsettling similarities — from the use of paramilitary groups and secret prisons to the targeted suspension of the rule of law. With this galvanizing call to arms based on her recent book, she urges regular citizens to take back our legacy of freedom and justice.

“Naomi Wolf sounds the alarm for all American patriots. We must come together as a nation and recommit ourselves to the fundamental American idea that no president, whether Democrat or Republican, will ever be given unchecked power.”
—Wes Boyd, co-founder, MoveOn.org

“The framers of our Constitution fully understood that it can happen here. Patriots like Madison, Paine, and Franklin would certainly applaud Naomi Wolf and recognize her as a sister in their struggle.”
—Mark Crispin Miller, author of Fooled Again

“One of the most important books that's been written, certainly in the last decade or two, and perhaps in my lifetime.”
-- Thom Hartmann, best-selling author and host of The Thom Hartmann Radio Program

“Naomi Wolf ’s End of America is a vivid, urgent, mandatory wake-up call that addresses momentous issues of tyranny, democracy, and survival.”
—Blanche Wiesen Cook, author of the three-volume Eleanor Roosevelt

“This latest offering from best-selling author Wolf, The Beauty Myth, is a harbinger of an age that may finally see the patriarchal realm of political discourse usurped. Here is Wolf’s compellingly and cogently argued political argument for civil rights, not women’s rights... Her chapters outline the ‘Ten Steps to Fascism’ citing historical corollaries (as well as the pigs in Orwell’s Animal Farm), with headings like ‘Invoke an External and Internal Threat,’ ‘Establish Secret Prisons,’ and ‘Target Key Individuals.’... In other words, fascism can exist without dictatorship. Highly recommended for all collections.”
—Theresa Kintz, Wilkes Univ., Wilkes-Barre, PA, Library Journal

I have a dream: That this video will be shown in classrooms all across this nation. One way to begin to accomplish this is for everyone to write letters to the Editor to make people aware that this film exists.

Naomi is one of the most important spokespersons for liberty alive.
Thanks for posting this Peter.

A nice dream you have...but I think most teachers/administrators in grade or high schools who would show this film would find themselves looking for work soon afterwards, sadly. Even in university settings it is very controversial. After the elections it will start to play in some independant theatres as a feature film.....we will see how it goes....will it be rated PG-55?

I think the internet is the most likely venue for people of all ages to see it.....but I hope you are right and I'm too much a cynical - it is worth a try. It certainly needs to be seen by most ASAP - no matter who wins the coming election.

Dang, thanks for the link Peter.

There's a mini-trend of progressives releasing movies right to the internet because they're more concerned with getting people to see it than with making money. I don't know if that's the case here, but it was certainly the case with Michael Moore's latest movie: http://slackeruprising.com/

Thanks Myra. I will view this one when I have time. I did send Naomi's to everyone on my email list. I see Moore on tv and he's been inspiring.
That they are giving the movie for free really says something about their values doesn't it?

No Peter you are not cynical, or not any more than am I.
It's been exciting to see how much people are doing to ensure this election. Standing in line for up to 8 hours. Now that is democracy in action. If the neocons manage to steal this again it's all over. This country will end because there will be a revolt and the militia will put us in the camps they have had for a very long time.
We here KNOW we are already under fascism, but the conspiracy unaware millions have no clue.
