The Free State Project (FSP) started with an idea: if 20,000 libertarian activists could all move to one small state with a friendly culture, that would be enough to create true “Liberty In Our Lifetime.” In 2003, New Hampshire was chosen. Since then, more than 16,000 people have signed the Statement of Intent to move when the target is hit – and 1,674 participants have already made the move!
This week, two of these early movers released an original documentary on the project – 101 Reasons: Liberty Lives in New Hampshire, available for free on Youtube.
Like the FSP itself, this film started with a man and a vision. Director Vince Perfetto wanted to figure out how he could adapt a famous outreach pamphlet, “101 Reasons to Move to New Hampshire,” into a feature film. He enlisted the help of filmmaker Beau Davis, and the two began recording personal stories from FSP participants and perspectives on this historic project from liberty’s leading lights, including Ron Paul’s former Economic Adviser Peter Schiff, Food Inc.’s Joel Salatin, Patrick Byrne of Overstock.com, Nick Gillespie of Reason Magazine, and... read more
Storm Clouds Gathering, known for its unorthodox analysis of news, politics, and geopolitical issues through documentary video content, takes a look at how the American media portrayal of why Russia and Syria are being accused of global aggression might differ from what is really behind it all in The Geopolitics of World War III.
The filmmaker sets the stage for the subject matter by suggesting that the U.S. dollar is a unique currency for many reasons, though the reasons that matter most are not necessarily widely known. One fact often thought to be significant is its status as the world reserve currency since 1945, but the dollar's importance is much more dependent on the fact it of it having been the primary currency by which oil has been traded in the global marketplace since 1970. Oil makes the world go round in the present political landscape, for better or worse, so this in turn makes the U.S. dollar a very important cog in the global financial machine.
Prior to 1971, the U.S. dollar was bound to the gold standard - or at least that is what the world operated under the belief of. The filmmakers highlight that the International Monetary Fund reports that in 1966, foreign central banks and governments held 14 billion U.S. dollars. While the United States did have $13.2 billion in gold reserves, most of that was needed to cover domestic holdings and only $3.2 billion of it was available for foreign holdings. What that means is the U.S. was printing more money than it could cover, and... read more
Euromania is a film produced by Peter Vlemmix in which he voices his personal concerns over losing his beloved Holland to the European Union and investigates what being part of the E.U. really means for it’s citizens.
The European Union was one of the most brilliant ideas of modern society. It meant freedom, the end of wars, 28 countries joined together, one single coin, and no borders. But there is a down side to all of this: countries are losing their individuality as the EU becomes more and more involved in their trivial domestic issues. The EU is calling the shots about when and how to get pregnant, how much energy to consume, and agricultural habits. The big question is, where is the line drawn?
According to Wim Van De Camp, a member of the European Parliament, “To understand the European Union in a proper way you need some knowledge and some experience because it’s quite complicated… it’s a corporation of 28 sovereign states.” Van De Camp states that the economic framework is laid out in Brussels, but the details are managed in each country. Considering that a sovereign country is supposed to be boss over its money and laws, the definition offered by this Member of Parliament seems a bit twisted. He does admit, however that... read more
This documentary focused on a United States’ attribute with Russia and China after a 1990 dissolution of a Soviet Union. Through newsreel footage and interviews with journalists, politicians and strategists, we learn about a US try to say universe appetite in a issue of this dissolution, a stream standing of Russia underneath a care of Vladimir Putin, and a benefaction attribute between Russia and China as commanding competitors to a US.

Most see the European Union of today as an inefficient conglomeration of states run by self-serving career politicians anxious to guarantee their survival by safely nesting in the EU’s cocoon of endless bureaucracies. Many don’t really see a threat at the moment. They believe that an integrated Europe makes sense; that it would prevent any chance of a third European war; that it is the modern, forward-thinking way to go. nothing could be further from the truth The European Economic Community (EEC) began as a free-trade agreement in 1972. Today’s European Union is well on its way to becoming a federal superstate, complete with one currency, one legal system, one military, one police force – even its own national anthem.... read more
This documentary revolves around the role of the Israeli lobbies, especially AIPAC, which has a great deal of influence on the US congress.
The film provides background on the relationship between major religions including Christianity, Protestantism and Judaism and their complicated intertwining histories before introducing viewers to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the leading Israel lobby advocating for pro-Israel policies to Congress and one of the strongest foreign lobbies in general. Interview subjects imply that AIPAC and other pro-Israel forces use their influence to persuade the United States of their intertwined interests in order to bankroll their conflicts with other Middle Eastern countries such as Palestine and Iran.
In one stock interview AIPAC is referred to as not only the most powerful foreign lobby, but the "most corrupting" for their financial influence on American politics, and another interviewee describes an incident dating back to Harry Truman's presidential campaign, in which he was bribed to recognize Israel as a state in order to... read more
The most dangerous threat to democracy in the United States of America is the mistaken belief that they actually practice one… because democracy is not a noun, it’s a verb. “Demos” means “the people”, and “kratia” means “rule”, so the word democracy means “the people rule.” We have the trappings of democracy… you just get to go and pull a lever every 2-4 years only for candidates that have been pre-approved and pre-selected by the ruling elite.
But when it comes to actually participating in a meaningful way in how the society is organized, how much pay you might get, whether or not you get healthcare, whether the country goes to war or not, whether we should address the climate crisis… in those kinds of questions the people never have an... read more
