Movie: Hillary’s America

I just saw: Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party. The subhead ("the Secret History of the Democratic Party") is more apt description of the film than the heading ("Hillary’s America"). It was 75% about the History of the Democrat Party, 20% about Bill and Hillary, and about 5% just filler, Apple Pie, Patriotism, and political propaganda. 

The truth about McCarthyism

> Much of this info comes from M. Stanton Evans painstakingly documented 600 page book: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His fight Against America’s Enemies. Though, over the years, I’ve read quite a few other books, snippets and articles on McCarthy, or the other scandals and players named, Stan’s book is one of the best collections of all the data in one place. While it’s long, I can’t recommend it enough, if you have interest in the technical details of what went on around McCarthy and the Truman/Eisenhower administrations, and want to dive into any of these topics more, it’s in there.

Thought Crime

In 1949, George Orwell wrote his cautionary book titled Nineteen Eighty-Four, positing what a world would look like by the year 1984. After all, he’d seen what the trends of Socialism had done to the world around him (in England and the U.S., USSR, Germany, China, and so on). And I’m not talking about just the economic devastation, but the broader cultural intolerance, purges, revisionism and demanding conformity that is a prerequisite to enable Social ownership (and the resulting loss of individual liberty). So he just imagined and documented where the current cultural trajectory would most likely lead, if unimpeded.
