This 2013 film, OBEY by British filmmaker, Temujin Doran is based on the book, The Death of the Liberal Class by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges.
This film about you, me and the routine of obedience. It is an attempt to show what it means to be obedient, at a time in which our habits will shape a world, in which we will no longer wish to live.
It explores the rise of the corporate state and the future of obedience in a world filled with unfettered capitalism, worsening inequality and environmental changes.
Its predictions have almost come true.

RAF, Good points, thanks. In case this wasn’t clear to you and to others, this video was made by a young British filmmaker, who was reading from a text by middle-aged American Progressive author-journalist, Chris Hedges.
What I found very interesting, here is that much of the narrative, except for some fine points, regarding Global Warming was pretty much the same as that of today’s disenfranchised American Working Class, the people who just voted Trump into office.
Political polarization has Americans at odds with each other, while they should be united against the super elite, who laugh at us – all the way FROM the bank.
The answer is and always has been, “Jesus the Christ!” and He said it at Calvary; “IT IS FINISHED!”
Thank You Lord Jesus!
ONLY when, as Mark Passio so aptly puts it, the slaves stand up and take up the responsibility of PERSONAL responsibility, and shake OFF the slave mentality of statism, will there be ANY hope for us, our children and our future.
So long as we SUPPORT these matters of statism and slavery, and serve to enforce them to have others follow, we will see nothing but a slide downhill into the pit of no-return.
But the price of all this, is PERSONAL MONARCHY .. rulership over SELF, not accepting the statist ideology of BEING RULED….
This is true – but the hypnosis is so complete, that 99.9999% of humans cannot see this.
As much as I agree with the ideals of Anarcho-Capitalism, I don’t think that human beings, as a group are evolved enough to achieve it on a mass scale, yet. It could work in rural, underpopulated areas, with people who all think along these lines.
Global weather engineering and global pollution are the problems glossed over by the global capitalist term “global warming.”
Communism makes man a beast, Capitalism makes him a slave.
People should not have jobs, they must have ownership in the industry they work. One vote & one share for each person and no votes or shares for dollars.
YOU MAKE AN EXCELLENT POINT. I SAW ONE SOCIAL ENGINEER STATE ELIMINATE THE MONETARY SYSTEM AND GO BACK TO BARTERING . THIS WOULD SOLVE IT ALL BUT IT IS NOT REALISTIC. YOUR CONCEPT ALLOWS CONTROL BY THE PEOPLE. HOWEVER ONCE AGAIN YOU WILL HAVE THE LITTLE RATS TRYING TO SNEAK IN TO IMPOSE THEIR AGENDA’S. NOT UNTIL THE TRUMP ELECTION DID WE KNOW ALL THAT HAS BEEN EXPOSED; IE. SATANISM, POLITICAL CORRUPTNESS, THE FILTH OF IT ALL. EVEN THOUGH TRUMP IS A CAPITALIST UNKNOWINGLY OR KNOWINGLY HAS STARTED THE TRENT TOWARD GOOD. WE MUST STAND BEHIND HIM BUT WE MUST BE CAUTIOUS. http://WWW.CONVENTIONOFSTATES.COM SPEAKS OF TERM LIMITS IN THEIR RESOLUTION TO AMEND ARTICLE 5 OF THE CONSTITUTION. THIS IS A STEP FORWARD. THEY SUGGEST 12 YEARS. TOO LONG IN MY OPINION. 4 YEARS THEN GET THE HELL OUT. SERVE YOUR COUNTRY, WE DON’T SERVE THEM. NO PAY OR BENEFITS. THEN AS CLINT SAID “GET OF THE LAWN.”
I agree. If Capitalism says that “Corporations are people,” then we should each incorporate ourselves. (I have 2!) Incorporating your own business should be part of the High School curriculum.
The premise that the fault lay with capitalism and global warming is absolutely false.
That premise is Marxian anti-capitalist and because the goal of global warmers is global taxation of producers, it too is anti-capitalist. Both are collectivist and anti-human. The fault lay with unbridled capitalism and extreme consumerism. Marx offers a way out, but in the end delivers unbridled statism under the same monopoly men as unbridled capitalism. Does anyone realistically imagine that monopoly men are going to somehow go away if we just do away with capitalism?
Capitalism is a most natural characteristic of human creativity, but left unchecked it becomes abusive, monopolistic and even oppressive; all of those things that are characteristic of artificial social constructs such as Marxism.
Limited voluntary collectivism is beneficial, but left unchecked it too becomes oppressive. The idiocy of consumer economics began in ernest under Clinton by moving productivity offshore with unjust taxation. Ignorant Americans were sold a bill of goods about the service economy replacing productivity of tangible goods. Central bankers then sold us another bill of goods – debt! It busted us! That is not capitalism! That is crony capitalism.
Go back and study Marx, the history of WWI & WWII as pertaining to Bolshevism and identify those devils who embraced this fake social construct and see that they are still at work undermining western civilization by perverting values and corrupting institutions that had long been bulwarks against corrupt capitalism. They want capitalism to fail ASAP, so they can replace it with collectivism which gives them total control.
Trump may give temporary relief, but the solution is a return to laws against usury and the return of currency control to the government where it belongs. These two monopolist cash cows hold nations hostage and collectivism only strengthens their grip on the rest of us!
Do ya think the Red Terrorists were not propped up by them?
I agree with your assessment by and large. I would add “restore the Republic” to laws against usury and return of currency control to the Treasury. This film provides useful knowledge and context.
Communism makes man a beast and Capitalism makes him a slave.
FASCISM…I am a Vietnam Veteran….60,000 American died for a baldfaced LIE bye LBJ and McNamara….BILLIONS were made in that phoney war; and AMERICA has learned NOTHING.

CAFR1 NATIONAL POST
The following is a communication I sent to President Elect Donald Trump’s team headquarters the other day per the TRFA project.
If you have the time to do so, please copy the letter below and send via USPS to Mr. Trump and above the text from the copy of my letter, in your own words noting specifically your view point of the importance that this project has to this country, economy, and your community.
Also note the assistance Mr. Trump and his team could and should render to help make this venture go forward and into effect as soon as possible. Urge Mr. Trump to facilitate my contact request expediently.
Have your friends do the same also.
I believe the more sincere letters he gets towards this issue, the quicker the ball will start rolling down the hill (Capital Hill) to make this project happen sooner than latter.
Sent FYI from,
Walter Burien (Bubien) – http://CAFR1.com and http://TRFA.us
PS: If you have an interest in seeing the finances involved in Mr. Trump’s campaign run for President before and after, the financials of the “in”, “out”, “loans”, “people who over contributed that are required to be refunded (RFAI-Pre-General)” etc can be downloaded from the FEC site here – http://www.fec.gov/fecviewer/CandidateCommitteeDetail.do?candidateCommitteeId=C00580100&tabIndex=3
COPY of: Walter Burien’s letter to President-elect Mr. Donald Trump dated 12/22/16 is as follows:
December 22nd 2016
TO: President-elect Mr. Donald J. Trump
725 Fifth Avenue.
New York, NY 10022
President-elect Mr. Donald Trump:
The greatest drain on the population and economy over the last three decades is the ever-increasing excessive growth of taxation on all local levels.
What I call “The Economic Stabilization and Recovery Act” is a way to eliminate all local taxation and at the same time create a thriving economy, prosperous population, and meeting all local government budgetary needs.
This is done trough transitioning local governments on to the fiduciary trust principle of operation to meet all budgetary needs. The capital funds that do so are called TRF (Tax Retirement Funds).
The method, management teams, and structure to do this are in place today, and have been so for decades.
Local governments have established their own collective trillion dollar fiduciary pension funds that pay out salaries and benefits at retirement. To the most part they have not missed a heartbeat and have paid all benefits intended equating to many trillions of dollars for millions of government personnel to date.
TRF funds are established venue by venue on the local level utilizing the same management teams, structure, and are designed from return and reserves building to meet local government’s operating budgets so that taxation can be incrementally phased out and then eliminated.
What this does in effect are three very important things:
1. Creates a thriving population and business environment with the excessive drain of taxation removed.
2. Builds and develops ever growing massive investment trusts where the capitol re-investment drives the economy in an ever growing, self perpetuating, self sustaining economy.
3. With the phasing out and then elimination of local government taxation, the public’s hostility level towards government will diminish towards government to nil almost overnight.
I have designed a 12-point operation principle for TRF fund management that the local governments and fund managers are to adhere to. Each point requirement makes the population the “first line beneficiary” of.
Point 5: From the investment trusts the population with good credit scores can get a mortgage on their homes or new car at 2.5 percentage points.
Point 3: A portion of the return from the trust funds, fines and fees will be offset (Local swim center family membership may be $165 a year and after a few years of TRF operation those fees may be reduced to $35 or be free).
Point 10: Investment guidelines for management teams to receive annual bonuses or in the alternative demerits if not in compliance.
Currently the National Headquarters for the TRFA (Tax Retirement Fund Association) is underway being built and located in Gallup, NM. (off of Patton Dr.) https://goo.gl/maps/4zG4u and should be completed, staffed, and in operation within the next 14-months. Federal assistance could make it happen that much sooner.
What is being done here is not the opportunity of a lifetime, but the opportunity of “all lifetimes”. Once in place it drives the economy of this country to a prosperous level never seen before and is self perpetuating from day-1 and for a thousand years out..
I have been working for seventeen-years toward preparation for this launch of the TRFA. I have only spoken with Mr. Trump casually for about a half and hour back in the early 80’s when invited to an all day party on the Trump Princess and briefly a year later when I stopped by the Trump Tower in NYC.
At this time I would wish to speak with Mr. Trump in detail about the TRFA and the significant impact it will have to create a thriving economy, very prosperous population, and meet all local government budgetary needs “without taxation”.
I can be reached for scheduling of that conversation at 1(928) 458-5854.

THIS MAN HAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS ACCOUNTING SCAM SINCE 1995 OR SOONER. TRILLIONS HIDDEN IN FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL GOVT ACCOUNTS. MY LETTER TO TRUMP IS READY TO GO. JUST DO IT. SPREAD THIS TO ETERNITY. IT NEEDS TO GET OUT. CHECK OUT WALTER’S STORY.
Fascism is correct. Your words are so tough and so true. I fully agree with your sentiments. Your pain is mine and that of all who are somewhat awake. Everything feels so gamed-out, that there seems to be no hope and no point, unless one can find a “way out” by means of a spiritual practice. I was raised an Atheist, so this is a struggle for me. I’m beginning to understand what Jesus IS and this glimpse is helping me to carry on. To continue to exist in a predatory multiverse with no hope of actual life isn’t worth the time of waiting to die.
