Here is PART 1


Watch the full documentary now (playlist – 1 hour, 12 minutes). Ethos, a powerful new documentary hosted by Woody Harrelson, is an investigation into the flaws in our systems, and the mechanisms that work against democracy, our environment and the the common good.

With a stunning depth of research and breadth of analysis, this film delves deep into the inter-connected worlds of Politics, Multi-National Corporations and the Media.

Most of us have wondered at some point how we have arrived at a situation where democracy is touted as having created an equal society when all we see is injustice and corruption.

Politicians openly deceive the public with the support of major corporations and the mainstream media. Wars are waged, the environment is destroyed and inequality is on the rise.

But what is the source of these institutional mechanisms which – when we scratch the surface – are so clearly anti-democratic, so contradictory to the values we hold in common and yet so firmly embedded that they seem beyond discussion?

Ethos opens a Pandora’s box that has it’s roots in the cross-roads where capitalism-meets-democracy, implicates every power-elite puts profit before people and finally offers a solution whereby you – the viewer – can regain control using the one thing they do care about – your cash.


A very good film...congratulations.

One point
, though. At the 1:10 mark you identify Aaron Russo as a former politician.
To my knowledge, Mr. Russo was a former entertainment producer and filmmaker, not politician.

Thanks for the film...I will recommend it widely.

Thanks, but it not my film

Russo ran in the Republican primary for governor of Nevada in 1998, placing second with 26% of the vote. He later endorsed the Democratic candidate, Las Vegas mayor Jan Laverty Jones, who lost to Republican Kenny Guinn.[citation needed] Russo subsequently planned to run for governor in 2002 as an independent or a Libertarian, but he was sidelined by cancer.


Here are a couple more recent documentaries worth passing around

Both videos examine the violence and police-state tactics used by the authorities to crack down and inhibit peaceful and non-violent protests against last year's G20 meeting in Toronto. The videos touch on the rather bizarre behaviour of the Toronto cops in disregarding the violent riot that took place at the start of the protests as they stood back and allowed the masked, Black Block anarchists a free hand to set on fire abandoned cop cars and smash windows and store fronts for a period of several hours with no opposition from the forces of "law and order." However the next day, after many comments of shock and disgust at the wanton violence were aired by politicians and media commentators, the police seemed to take a perverse pleasure in being overtly brutal and cruel in inflicting pain and suffering on innocent, non-violent protesters and even passers-by going about their business and arresting them on trumped up charges (most ultimately dismissed) and throwing them in detentions pens where they were deprived of food, water, medical assistance and access to legal advice for extended periods of time.

The first video is a recent episode of the CBC program "The Fifth Estate" and runs 45min, the 2nd video is called Toronto G20 Exposed. Both of these youtube videos are available at the following link for online viewing: http://TorontoG20Exposed.ca

Note that the 2nd and longer documentary dwells more extensively on the possible use of a police stand down at the initial riot as a purposeful act to justify a violent crackdown on all protesters. Page down to see the 2nd video.

Good intro to motives for 9/11 and how we can take action

Although not specifically about 9/11, this video shows the motives for it, and how the military industrial complex benefits from war. Woody Harrelson inspires us to take action we can do every day to change the world for the better.
