I recently read a blog post (with accompanied video) by Tim Marks with jaw dropping amazement and anger as to how much I am not aware of. I have watched this video 4 times now. I am reposting this blog for a simple reason, I hope it has the same affect on you! I hope you watch it, show someone else, and then show someone else.
Enjoy, Steve Leurquin
Over years of a self-directed education, having read many books on a variety of topics including history and politics, I always try to step back and look at the facts as they are and not as I want them to be. With that in mind, I’d like to share a video from Edward Griffin, an excellent researcher and historian. I don’t agree with him on everything, but he offers some thought-provoking insights on our political parties.
In this clip, Griffin shares a bone-chilling question that was asked by a university history professor who actually mentored William Clinton while he was a student (a question that is the opposite of what I personally stand for.) The question asked was:
“How do you let people think they are directing their own political destiny, while at the same time we, the elite, are [actually] the ones directing their political destiny, without them [the people] knowing it?”
The answer, once you hear it, will cast a light on the political charade we see in our government today. Remember: we can’t make our world better until we understand it.
The video below casts light on things many of us have wondered or felt from time to time, and answers some questions about why we are stuck as a country and not following any one party’s “agenda” but really following an agenda we are not even aware of. Thankfully, through LIFE Leadership, we have excellent books like Orrin Woodward’s And Justice For All that help us all continue a self-directed political education. Enjoy the video!
