M: "M-am uitat si eu… e trist ce vad. Si totusi sunt copii care rad si se joaca!

Dar uneori ma gandesc cine e mai trist si cine mai fericit. Si care este unitatea de masura a fericirii.

Uite, un exemplu pe care l-am trait personal. In urma cu 2 weekenduri ne-am facut program pentru onorarea indatoririlor sociale. Am fost in vizita la niste amici care anul trecut s-au mutat in cel mai select cartier din Timisoara. O casa superba, pe colt, cu multe geamuri, exact cum imi place mie. Fata mea cea mica are 9 ani, a lor – cea mica are 10. A lor a avut in permanenta o bona, parintii fiind ocupati pana seara cu job-ul. In prezent este eleva, sta la after school pana la 7 seara. Are o camera mare si frumoasa, plina de jucarii. Vrea sa-si invite prieteni la ziua ei si nu are pe cine.

De la ei ne-am dus la o verisoara de-a mea, care isi creste singura baiatul de 10 ani intr-o garsoniera de 25 mp. Lucreaza si ea, dar il duce peste tot: la pictura, la inot, la meditatii, este premiant I, merge la olimpiade… Nu are prea multe, dar are. Si calculator, si masinute… Are strictul necesar.

Ajunsi acasa, am intrebat-o pe cea mica: ei, unde ti-a placut mai mult, la Roberta sau la Darius. Fara nici o ezitare a venit raspunsul: la Darius bineinteles!"

 

Cazul acelor copii e altceva nu doar saracie. Cind mama,bunica, strabunica sint prostituate, tata drogat DACA exista, cind nimeni in jur nu sta o ora cu bebelusul fara un ban, cind nu exista caracter, valori, doar vise de copii, copii aia nu sint doar saraci sint, statistic, total condamnati.

In India si alte tari sint sute de milioane de oameni fericiti, de 100 de ori mai saraci decit Darius. Eu am vazut, tot statistic, fericirea e mai prezenta inre saraci decit intre bogati, ei pur si simplu zimbesc mai mult si mai sincer. In Thailanda, Land of smiles, cei mai multi sint saraci dar nu cersesc, muncesc din greu si ceea ce fac, fac cu multa grija. Nu fura nu sint tigani, chiar daca au sanse mici sa se desprinde de conditia lor sociala sint … Budisti’.

 
Noam Chomsky is a renowned scholar, the founder of the modern science of linguistics, a philosopher, a political and social analyst, a media critic, an author of more than 70 books, a winner of numerous prizes and awards, and ranks with Marx, Shakespeare, and the Bible as one of the 10 most quoted sources in the humanities.

In this remarkable documentary, Noam Chomsky offers a riveting but devastating critique of America’s current war on terror arguing, in fact, that it is a logistical impossibility for such a war to be taking place. Professor Chomsky presents his reasoning with astonishing and refreshing clarity, drawing from a wealth of historical knowledge and analysis. "Only those who are entirely ignorant of modern history will be surprised by the course of events, or by the justifications that are provided…"

Award-winning journalist John Pilger investigates the discrepancies between American and British claims for the ‘war on terror’ and the facts on the ground as he finds them in Afghanistan and Washington, DC.

In 2001, as the bombs began to drop, George W. Bush promised Afghanistan "the generosity of America and its allies". Now, the familiar old warlords are regaining power, religious fundamentalism is renewing its grip and military skirmishes continue routinely. In "liberated" Afghanistan, the U.S. has its military base and pipeline access, while the people have the warlords who are, says one woman, "in many ways worse than the Taliban".

In Washington, Pilger conducts a series of interviews with William Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard, and leading Administration officials such as Douglas Feith, Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, and John Bolton, Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security. These people, and the other architects of the Project for the New American Century, were dismissed as ‘the crazies’ by the George H. W. Bush Administration in the early 90s when they first presented their ideas for pre-emptive strikes and world domination. Pilger also interviews former presidential candidate General Wesley Clark, and former intelligence officers, while raising questions about the real motives for the ‘war on terror’.

While President Bush refers to the U.S. attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq as two ‘great victories’, Pilger asks the question – victories over whom, and for what purpose? He describes Afghanistan as a country "more devastated than anything I have seen since Pol Pot’s Cambodia". He finds that Al-Qaida has not been defeated and that the Taliban is re-emerging and questions "Victory" in Iraq.

This is the first film in a 5 part series. Evidence of Revision is an 8 hour long documentary series whose purpose is to present the publicly unavailable and even suppressed historical audio, video, and film recordings largely unseen by the American public relating to the assassination of the Kennedy brothers, the little known classified "Black Ops" actually used to intentionally create the massive war in Vietnam, the CIA "mind control" programs and their involvement in the JFK assassination and the Jonestown massacre and other important truths of our post-modern time. This film analyzes the John F. Kennedy assassination by showing archival footage of witnesses many of which worked for the government. It lets the characters involved such explain the story and provides important information to help you understand how the complex struggle for power behind the scenes lead to the assassination of one of America’s favorite presidents.

here are many JFK assassination films that end with murky endings. I wonder if this is because it is more politically acceptable to do that then analyze motive. This film doesn’t beat around the bush. It uses footage to explain who killed JFK and why they did it and who they were connected to. The film starts off rather slow as it sets its foundation rather methodically but then lets the archival footage including testimony from witnesses that later died mysteriously hook you.
