"Dinesh D'Souza asks the world to pause for one second and ponder how different our lives would be without the great country that is America"
Mr. 2016, Souza himself, has come back with yet another eyebrow raising documentary to make Americans contemplate an alternate state of affairs.
If that's even possible? This is one of those documentaries that will either make you mad or give you something juicy to mull over the next few months. We watched it recently and in tonight's review we are going to discuss a few of Souza's points that beg to be Unhinged. So are you ready? Let's begin with...
The Indictments Against America
Yes, folks Souza goes into the fray talking of charges against America and how certain presidential figures would be locked under the jail for their actions. Now, we're no historians here, but it is true that every story has another side and in some cases six different sides all together. But, it's not that Souza's just spouting about dribble, he's actually laid some cold hard truths out that cause for pause.
Take the charge of stealing land from the Mexican Territory or even stealing the American Dream from it's own people! Talk about Woww, you really just have to let that one sit for a minute because who could possibly do that? It couldn't be one man, it would have to be a government of some sort, wouldn't it? Maybe our own?
Souza leaves no crumbs on the table and puts everyone and everything under a microscope in this documentary. He even goes as far as to speak on what some would call one of the greatest books ever written, Howard Zinn's "A People's History Of The United States". You've got to respect the stones on this guy for attempting to debunk a book that is required reading in some academic institutions. We're telling you, this is a wild one..lol
Little Known History Of Our Country's Past
But that's not all! Now, we all know slavery is an ugly part of this country's history, but did you know that some "freed slaves" became wealthy slave owners themselves? See those are little tidbits that get left out of most history books depending on your geographic location.
One of the most interesting things we find about this documentary is that for every morsel of insight he brings to our attention, there are so many others we'll never know. And then at the same time, you have to wonder, whose providing his information? Or better yet, whose providing ours?
Take the bible for example, there are so many different interpretations and religions that have manifested from the same book, people still argue over it's authenticity. We're no political juggernauts over here, but a film like this achieves it's intention. It makes you want to question the information you hear from so called "officials" and formulate your own opions, by doing your "own" research.
Souza's Panel Of Experts Weigh In
Even with all the expert contributions Souza obtained for this documentary, you still have to wonder "What is the real truth?". Everybody can't be right, but everybody can't be wrong. The only way we would know everything is if we were present in every war, every political crusade and witnessed every soldier's death on every corner of the globe.
Now that's a lot of history to cover, but whose to say he's not right and whose to say he's wrong? Souza can't be all that bad just for having an opinion, now can he? Even with his 2016 documentary that landed him in jail, he can't be that bad, can he? If he's bad then how many of us would be guilty of having an opinion? Questioning the history of the American people or it's direction shouldn't be a crime. But then again, we've been locked up for less.
Life After Souza's Work
After watching, "America: Imagine The World Without Her", the porch light is definitely on...lol Curiosity is peaked and questions have been formed on top of existing questions that each had questions of their own.
So should you watch this documentary? Of course, especially if you're someone that's not content with ingesting whatever propaganda lands on you're plastic spoon. But, if you're on the other-side of the tracks, you might want some Advil on hand when you press play..lol
