What Happened to the Antiwar Movement?
"I will end the war as we understand it". Barack Obama.
No, I don't know what happened to the antiwar movement, but Reason.TV tries to find out. Some of you remember the fervent anti war protests during the Bush years. They were correct. Where are they now? How come the Mainstream Media is AWOL on the issue, as well as Hollywood and the anti war Left? This should serve as EDUCATION to you that most people are more loyal to their 'team' or their 'side' than anything else. They have the herd mentality - the sheeple factor - and they really don't think at all. Now that someone from their 'team' is president, well, he can do no wrong. Make sure you have principles, independent thought, courage and the ability to see the world around you clearly. If you are anti war, as many people are, then stay that way. The political party should have no factor in those beliefs. The Left and the Right are guilty of being part of the 'herd', and you should not fall into that trap. One of the reasons I have fallen into the libertarian camp (after being on both sides of the political spectrum) is because I realized the left / right paradigm is totally fake, and it is there to keep us unfocused and distracted from the real enemy - the Federal Reserve. See some of the previous videos on this site for more on the FED.
