Alex Jones latest film is a quantum leap better than his previous efforts. The production qualities are quite professional, the folks being interviewed have very good credentials, and they each give an in-depth perspective in their area of expertise. Whereas his previous films had a right-wing flavor to them, annoying to many, Alex takes the trouble in this latest film to present things in more balanced terms, in an effort to get the message out to more people. 

And it’s a message that needs to get out, of importance to people of every persuasion. The story is told by brief interview segments, alternating with clips from TV broadcasts that document the observations being made in the interviews. For example, we see Obama promising repeatedly on the campaign trail, “There will be no signing statements”, and then in the next clip we see a news broadcaster reporting, “Today Obama issued his first signing statement”. 
Alex himself provides continuity, and sums up what’s been said in each segment, but he doesn’t dominate the presentation, as he has done in some of his previous work. Where previously we often felt we were listening to Alex’s opinions and rants, in this latest film we’re instead watching a more standard documentary, with the information coming from qualified experts and backed up by the broadcast footage.
The focus is on the financial elites that run the global economy, and in their own words we hear what they’re up to, and in the words of the politicians who serve as their PR functionaries and agenda implementors. We see that terms like “New World Order”, “global governance”, and “global currency” are now on the table, referred to specifically as objectives, by folks like Gordon Brown, and in documents like those emerging from the recent G20 conference. These things can no longer be called Fox News conspiracy theories. It’s all now mainstream, as this documentary makes clear.

In all seriousness, I suggest that this documentary is the best single presentation of How the system works and where it’s headed that you can find. There are books that cover similar material, but seeing the broadcast clips is much better than footnotes, as regards knowing that you’re getting a true story. Anyone who watches this film will have a better understanding of today’s political and economic reality than they would get by pursuing a university degree in political science or economics. 

If you haven’t yet taken the red pill, this is the time to give it a try. You have nothing to lose but your illusions. And if you’ve already taken the red pill, the film will add depth and detail to your understanding.
