our british friends

I really didn’t expect anyone to tackle the three-hour movie featured in the post “The Usual Suspects,” yet a surprising number of people viewed it and some even commented. So here’s another; much shorter—yet just as provocative.

I don’t know what I think about this, but it does square with bits and pieces of history that have always left me with a sense of ambivalence regarding the British government and crown. It fits with my admiration for the aims of Lincoln and FDR, and my disdain of the idea and practices of empire.

I reject many of the views of Lyndon LaRouche, the man behind this film, but I believe his notion of historical British opposition to the “American System” should not be thrown out with the bathwater. It makes sense.



I would like to know what you think.
