    Thanks guys!

    Krystian, These look good... I will check out your links.

    Bill, Thanks for reminding me about this one...it is a good starting point! Only problem is that this friend is always looking for the rich and powerful to solve our problems. He believes that Bill Gates and Oprah going to change the world. I will recommend this movie to him even though it reinforces the idea that the elite will save us.
    Hi again

    Okay, I've given this a little more thought (all previous suggestions have been helpful too, of course):

    The Corporation is I think probably the best starting point; you'd stated video for a good reason perhaps .

    You can point them to the Avalon Library and these links:

    The Corporation (full version): http://avalonlibrary.net/The_Corporation.mp4

    HD versions in 4 parts:

    What's his opinion of 9/11?

    If he thinks the official story is true, then here would be a good place to start in chiselling through those walls of mainstream deceit and lies. I've seen 9/11 work as a catalyst before, but it's a hard path. As Mark Twain said, "It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled."

    For a video that encapsulates it all, this is one of the best. It's long though, but necessarily so. It's very thorough, and never boring. And it doesn't ram outlandish conspiracy theories down your throat, it merely shows/tells/underlines what is wrong with the official story, all its discrepancies, inconsistencies, and downright lies. It tasks you to join the dots yourself. Once he starts to join those dots and ask those questions..mission accomplished.

    This is a boring and poorly made video. It is about 45 minutes of a man sitting in a chair reading one document after another. Pretty boring. The sound is messed up at the beginning but it evens out. Production values not a high priority ...


    And then I found out about Splitting The Sky aka Dacajeweiah aka John Boncore Hill. And then ...

    I almost hesitate to post this one, mostly due to the length. Also because there are so many things during the 3.5 hours that can spike cognitive dissonance.

    If it helps, I sent it to a friend that was also questioning the way the world works and she had a positive response to it.

    Everything is a Rich Man's trick : JFK to 9/11 part 1

    Quote It traces the history of the Dulleses who wrote the Treaty of Versailles; and the Bushes who played a hand in Hitler’s rise, JFK’s murder, and the WTC collapse. The film doesn’t shy away from the Mafia connection with the CIA, so obvious in the Kennedy plot, the Bay of Pigs, and Iran–Contra. We begin to see the US military, with its endless wars in Central America, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East, as an enforcement arm of the corporations.

    We begin to appreciate the pervasive influence of the propaganda machine, and of the permanent war economy it serves. Wealth is siphoned upward so the rich can retain their status as having more than the rest — while the rest are always having to support the war machine. Thus the public are given false enemies time and again, as the only rationale they can buy for continuing the status quo. Meanwhile we are unconsciously consuming and being entertained, buying into the old Caesar’s trick of bread and circuses. And we are subject to increasing surveillance and censorship, again under the guise of protection from enemies… because ironically the population itself is the real enemy of the ruling elite.

    Another one, just for a broad sweep of the 20th Century, would be The Century of the Self. This is the full version:

    The Century of the Self (TV Docu-Series 2002)

    Quote The story of the relationship between Sigmund Freud and his American nephew, Edward Bernays. Bernays invented the public relations profession in the 1920s and was the first person to take Freud's ideas to manipulate the masses. He showed American corporations how they could make people want things they didn't need by systematically linking mass-produced goods to their unconscious desires.

    Bernays was one of the main architects of the modern techniques of mass-consumer persuasion, using every trick in the book, from celebrity endorsement and outrageous PR stunts, to eroticising the motorcar.

    His most notorious coup was breaking the taboo on women smoking by persuading them that cigarettes were a symbol of independence and freedom. But Bernays was convinced that this was more than just a way of selling consumer goods. It was a new political idea of how to control the masses. By satisfying the inner irrational desires that his uncle had identified, people could be made happy and thus docile.

    It was the start of the all-consuming self which has come to dominate today's world.
