This is a great interview of a classmate of mine at NYU Film School Alex Winter, possibly most well-known for his roles as “Bill” alongside Keanu Reeves  in the raucous ‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure’ comedy films.

Abby Martin and Winter have an excellent, in-depth conversation about the topic of Winter’s new directorial work, ‘Deep Web: The Untold Story of Bitcoin and the Silk Road’, about that vast part of the Internet known as the Deep Web, the smaller and more important part of it called the Darknet and the anarchist website called the Silk Road, operated by Ross Ulbrecht. In light of the crimes he actually committed, Ulbrecht was given an unduly harsh double life sentence without the possibility of parole for creating and hosting the site. Winter goes into what he believes to be the reasons for this, and further discusses with Martin issues, including the Drug War, privacy and why effective encryption still matters, in the wake of the WikiLeaks Vault 7 releases.

  • The only way to stop the criminally corrupt, treasonous Federal Gov’t – individuals at the executive levels are traitors to LIFE itself – why anyone supports it is beyond me – is to make the profit of the war machine illegal. Stop supporting it by stopping the materialist consumer behavior, and to throw cheese at everything from the IRS to the Judicial Branch.

  • Excellent interview and good explanations of the “so what” bigger picture. Still, the dark net remains dark to me. I honestly began the video thinking I may learn how to get onto the Deep Web and check it out. Apparently, I need a computer genius bad-boy in my life to do so or better research skills.

  • I don’t think so. Say it in the open. Have the courage……All of us

    • Courage or stupidity? If you are a Vietnam vet who saw real battle you already know that this is a fine line where only wisdom prevails in the choice making.

    • You Bet! Thank you for your service, Dennis, to an illegal US gov’t that overthrew America when LBJ & GHWB had Kennedy murdered. I mean, I wish I could say there was a point to Vietnam when there wasn’t, other than to open the eyes of a ignorant public, awaking them from a drunken stupor.

      What you could also do is to encourage others who got brainwashed by patriotism of America’s highest ideals (that few even think of these days) to NOT join /enlist /sign-up /contract for /support by working for a DoD firm (although we get the need to work..) .. It’s more patriotic these days to NOT pay your taxes; to NOT enlist for the service, to NOT support any part of the war machine.. because those Satanists & Zionists who utilize the political war machine have only one goal – war profiteering. The blackmailed pervert politicians know that these wars have no political purpose – that they are all just to serve the Zionist/NMO agenda.

      I quit my secret DoD gig 30 years ago because I didn’t want my physics & engineering efforts to be packaged into a cruise missile. I try to not spend money on anything in support of any war, and I keep trying to open people’s eyes to this truth of the depraved human ugliness that leads so many so far astray. I wish I could figure out how to lead them back to love,
