America - Freedom to Fascism

Highly recommended
America - Freedom to Fascism at Google Video is a must-see despite its offputting title. And it's a must-see-right-through, because some of the most important material, about RFIDs, is at the end.

I do some regular work for a printing industry journal. This work has opened my eyes to the growing RFID industry, and the alacrity with which the printing industry is cottoning onto how to print micro-circuitry onto all sorts of materials. If you've seen McDonald's restaurant tray mats with printed electronic games on them, something quite impossible just a few years ago, you'll see that the technologies are leaping ahead. It's huge business.

In Britain, the USA and Australia, the lobby for ID cards is growing at a frightening rate. Are we citizens really aware of what's going on around us, and how far the authoritarians have come? Do we understand their strategies and tactics? The answer is a resounding "No!"

This film is primarily about the serious issue of taxes; its thesis is that there is not actually a law in the USA requiring the lodgement of income tax forms. No law, in fact, that allows the imposition of income tax. I recommend this film to non-Americans as well as Americans, for more reasons than I can say.

The film is directed by Aaron Russo, who was manager for Bette Midler from 1972 to 1979 and The Manhattan Transfer, and the producer of the films The Rose, Trading Places and Wise Guys. Russo has personally won both an Emmy and a Tony award and his films have also won a number of Golden Globe awards.

Watch it, and get active.
