Lord Acton's famous dictum again comes into play: "Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Is American exceptionalism a reality? Yes, but not the positive kind you're thinking of. Dirty Lying Bastards shows that the upper echelons of our American dreamscape is fraught with exceptional corruption, a corruption so systemically wide that it might very well tear down the whole of our society. The conglomeration of American politics and business, an unholy alliance, is the "enemy within" of which we REALLY NEED TO BE AFRAID. I fear we are in so deeply into denial that there is no way out of it. American fairness is now dead. Our conscience is also dead. It's all so pitiful.

Once again the left has decided that all scientists are in CONSENSUS when many have NOT agreed to man made global warming. ANOTHER hITLER LIKE CAMPAIGN OF DISINFORMATION. I am tired of the tolerant and OPEN MINDED left telling us what is right....while denying any possibility they are wrong. These are the same people who have said in the 70's that the CLIMATE WAS GOING TO CREATE A NEW ICE AGE BY 200...and it DIDNT HAPPEN. These are nothing more than fear tactics...created facts as was once stated in the news when these scientific communities emails were hacked....its a fabrication and NOT ALL SCIENTISTS ARE BEHIND it but the film suggests they are,,,if they are not then they are called names and ridiculed....very much like socialistic Russia was...and is again. I wont waste my money on these POLITICALLY CORRECT propaganda movies. You are no longer to dissent from liberal "opinions" disguised as facts any more. We are in dangerous times and Mother Merica is watching you...Big Brother

Global warming propaganda piece

If you've read The New Yorker piece about the Koch brothers, you would have been given a more interesting analysis of their environmental crimes. While I am more than sympathetic to the views expressed in this film, truth be told, I was nodding off midway through it. Too much of the same story about paid climate change deniers but with some nice graphics thrown in.
