I think Jones is nuts for various reasons and I certainly don't agree with everything in this video, but it's worth a watch if you want to see some of the structures in place behind the presidency in general. Towards the end, you could turn off the video and save yourself from Jones' paranoid delusions based on loose connections and misunderstandings of issues.

I disagree that Obama was not the lesser evil and like always, I still think us peasants (united states citizens) should continue to vote in lesser evils. It's all we got. We would be tremendously worse off under McCain and that idiot Palin... we'd have even less access and more misery. Jones seems to come from a childish libertarian point of view where you have to throw out everything, instead of dealing with reality and working from there.

It's a shame it has dumb, false interpretations of the Fairness Doctrine (which would help fight against corporatists) and has idiots who think manmade climate change is only a conspiracy and idiotic railings against health care policies without mentioning alternatives like a true single payer system. Full of loose connections, this documentary falls apart at the seams at the end with typical teapartyesque Hitler references, etc. It's a shame, because it had a lot of promise in the beginning, but falls apart into idiocy towards the end.

Much better off watching this:

I think you're spot on about Alex Jones. He's on the right track but just goes way too far. I'm not sure why, he clearly is able to reason his way through things.

I'm not intellectual and its clear to me that the whole government cannot be against the people all the time. There are good people in every industry, even politics hehe

I think all Alex really needs is a sit down with Noam, smoke a spliff and ease up on the conspiracy theories, some of which are valid but not possibly all.

I'm not sure if you ever saw the movie, Waking life? There's a bit in that with Alex Jones, or an animated version of him and it's pretty out there but has stayed with me as a lasting image. So love him or hate him, he's getting his voice heard and I respect his conviction to do that on what's essentially a noble mission.
