As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama promised transparency and open government yet his administration is one of the most closed governments in US history, described as being worse than even the Nixon administration.The technology and information revolution allows the government to cast its net wider than ever before; collecting data, watching, spying and analysing. As revelations of systemic snooping continue to hit the headlines, Empire asks: who is watching the watchers? Joining us as we unpack some of the known unknowns are Oscar-winning film director Oliver Stone, and war reporters Jeremy Scahill and Richard Rowley. We unravel the psychology of secrets with psychiatrist Justin Frank, the author of Obama on the Couch and Bush on the Couch. We look at the impact of state secrets brought to light with Dana Priest, a leading Washington Post investigative reporter on national security and author of two books, including her most recent Top Secret America: The Rise of the New American Security State. We are also joined by Michael Ratner, president emeritus of the Center for Constitutional Rights and an attorney representing Julian Assange and Wikileaks; as well as Evgeny Morozov, an expert on internet and privacy issues.

This is a film based on the book “Death of the Liberal Class” by journalist and Pulitzer prize winner, Chris Hedges.

It charts the rise of the Corporate State, and examines the future of obedience in a world of unfettered capitalism, globalisation, staggering inequality and environmental change.

The film predominantly focuses on US corporate capitalism, but it is my hope that the viewer can recognise the relevance of what is being expressed with regards to domestic political and corporate activity.

It was made completely of clips found on the web.

    WHY WHY WHY ? What were you thnking? WHY all the NEGATIVE imaging and SPLIT SCREENS???Absolutely pointless effects. And ENOUGH with the GLOBAL WARMING PROPAGANDA. I can say the rest of the message was pretty bang on though. 2.5 Stars for the message.

    I find it compelling watching. It is the truth and if this do not awaken us, what else?

  • I am so with you Mike on the needless and annoying effects. I’m a few minutes in and if it keeps up I’m going to stop. The music is a bit over intense too.
    Sigh, I love documentaries.

    I gather in the end, what this video is saying is bend over and try to enjoy the ass slamming you have in store for you. I too found the effects annoying and unnecessary.
