2006 – This 50 minute documentary gives an in-depth look into the world of Google and internet search.

What if all the world’s information were available and easy to find? What if all the news, all books, all texts, photographs and videos would be collected in one place, and made available, always and everywhere?

This is the goal of Google, and the company seems to be realizing its core mission at an amazing speed: through its popular search engine, through Google Earth, with which users can find any kind of information based on geography, and through Google Print, a project in which Google digitizes complete libraries.

Google is divulging ever more information, in the of process hiring the smartest people in the industry. But is the company aware of the responsibility it has, being the guardian of all the world’s information, including personal information about its users?

This documentary takes a look into the world of Google, in the company’s headquarters in Mountain View, California and in its London offices. We see –among others- Vint Cerf, named ‘the father’ of the Internet who explains the inner workings of Google as a company. Since 2004, Cerf has been working for Google, helping them to develop new applications for the Internet. What is his view on the development of the Internet, and on the role Google plays in today’s world?

With its motto ‘Don’t be evil’, Google seems to have the best of intentions. But there are also claims that Google is slowly turning into Big Brother, keeping track of its users and continuously making decisions about the information it provides to an ever faster growing number of users.

Will Google turn out to be a new Library of Alexandria, serving as a middleman that brings all useful information to anyone? Or is it turning into a monopolistic Big Brother that challenges the freedom of information?

The definitive documentary on psychotropic drugging—this is the story of the high-income partnership between drug companies and psychiatry which has created an $80 billion profit from the peddling of psychotropic drugs to an unsuspecting public.  But appearances are deceiving.  How valid are psychiatrists’ diagnoses—and how safe are their drugs?  Digging deep beneath the corporate veneer, this three-part documentary exposes the truth behind the slick marketing schemes and scientific deceit that conceal a dangerous and often deadly sales campaign.

    Those with depression should consider a natural alternative: St. John’s Wort. The ancient Greeks used it to help those with depression and mood issues, and the active ingredient, hypericin, comes from a flower. It’s also about $8 for a month’s supply – so Big Pharma’s not making any money. My cousin’s psychiatrist recommended Welbutrin. He refused it and told the psychiatrist that he was going to use St. John’s Wort. The psychiatrist acted like it was just as good as the Welbutrin without all of the side effects. I wonder why he even recommends the Welbutrin? Kickbacks from the drug companies?

    Don’t be fooled by this documentary. It’s tone and thrust might pursuade the naive as It may sound and look totally authentic but it was made by the Citizen Commission on Human Rights who are a front group for the Church of Scientology (COS). They hate psychiatry and psychiatrists, not for the lack of applied science or indeed drug company affiliations but because they are in competition with the (imho) lunatics running COS for mind control techniques. Of course, the COS doesn’t explicitly state this but anyone familiar with this pseudo church will be aware of Hubbard’s nonsense.
    Whilst every source dealing with COS and psychiatry has to be treated with some caution, Wikipedia has an article detailing COS’s poisoned and jaundiced viewpoints – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citizens_Commission_on_Human_Rights
    Factor in these comments and the fact that this documentary’s stated facts are unproven (something the COS continually and hypocritically allege about the medical industry) and suddenly many of the allegations fall away. BTW I have no connection whatsoever with the medical industry or profession. I just despise the way the COS goes about slagging off a whole industry for its own nefarious purposes. Sometimes, you have to shoot the messenger.
