5.0 out of 5 stars you wouldn't believe what has become of America 27 Feb 2007
By Rebeq
Format:DVD
On top of the page it says:

'you may purchase only one copy of this product'.

Wait a little while, and it will be punishable to purchase it at all.

Why? Well, here come the news:

1. The US Federal Reserve Bank is a private bank, not a state-run bank

2. By whom this bank is owned has never been reveiled

3. There is no law that allows the IRS to make anyone pay an income tax, in fact it is actually forbidden by the constitution.

4. The Federal Reserve Bank does not use taxpayers money for things like infrastructure or schools at all. All the money goes straight to the unknown owners of this bank paying ONLY for the interest of the state's debt with the very same private-owned bank. Totalling 950 billion dollar in fiscal year 2000.

Someone ever wondered who profits most from all the wars around the globe, and why it is that the US gets involved in pretty much every one of those?

I heard people say modern governments were merely puppets doing what those REALLY powerful want them to do. Meet those people on videotape, breaking every single law you might think of and getting away with it. Law is for you and me not for these guys. Buy this DVD while you still can I mean it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Effective Hardcore Libertarian Documentary 16 July 2007
Format:DVD
Aaron Russo has produced many successful films but very likely his most passionate motives lie in his political viewpoints. Russo is a Libertarian with a capital L. He ran for president in 2004 and lost in the primary to Michael Badnarick. Of course, any third party candidate has his hands full with the Democrat and Republican voters. I could probably talk about what it means to be a libertarian for a million lines and how my state doesn't recognize the party anymore. I will say that if you're compelled by some of Russo's insights then I highly recommend you continue to research the fundamental principals of libertarianism as a political philosophy. With that said, Russo is extreme in some respects but I will attempt to go forth reviewing this film with an oversight of this information and that America: From Freedom to Fascism does present to us the facts as they are viewed by Russo. Many will contend some of his key points and others will criticize his presentation. It is propaganda but then again everything in this genre is. Don't let the banter and acid tongues out there intimidate you. Just sit back, take it all in and go along for the ride.

Russo presents his case that Americans have seen a gradual erosion of our civil liberties since the early part of the 20th century. In various interviews he paints his picture clear that we are leading toward an inevitable police state. I'm not going to get into the nuts and bolts of his arguments, suffice to say it's provoking and opinionated, but certainly not without merit. Like many documentarians, politics is Russo's engine and the film is his train. We are the passengers and by the end of the trip we are left to ponder all the facts and challenge ourselves to believe, dissent, or abstain...

5.0 out of 5 stars power and money 24 July 2009
Format:DVD
A wake-up call, mainly about the US but still very interesting to us over here, especially since we also have a privately owned "central bank" - the so-called Bank of England, pulling off the same cons as the Federal Reserve Bank in the US.

The film starts as a personal investigation by Russo into the US tax system but quickly opens out, explaining how most of us don't understand the Ponzi scheme that is the national and world monetary system. We think that we borrow the money of savers and the bank makes its profit from the differential between the interest it pays to account holders and the interest it receives from borrowers. Not so.

The money deposited in banks is used to maintain the cash flow of demand accounts such as current and savings. It is held as a reserve to meet withdrawals. Borrowed money is created by the banks out of thin air. Banks can loan (create) ten times the amounts they hold. Although governments have the right to print money, banks create 97% of US and UK money supplies and governments borrow instead, causing huge problems to all of us (yes, this is deliberate). The crippler is that the bank doesn't create the interest we need to repay, so this giant Ponzi scheme has to crash at some point.

The film goes on to examine the fact that there is no law permitting the US government to collect income tax from individuals, only corporations, and they actually collect most taxes illegally. It also explains that most federal tax goes to all these privately held banks to pay interest on government borrowing and that community taxes look after necessities like roads, rubbish collection, and the like.

5.0 out of 5 stars He who makes the money... 6 May 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This important new film documents how the privately run US Federal Reserve system is slowly destroying America, with massive knock on effects for the rest of the world. Think this sounds boring? Haven't got time to watch or just plain can't be bothered? You can't afford NOT to know what's been going on.
