I am inspired. There is hope for our great nation, and we are that hope.
"America, Imagine a World Without Her", is thoughtful, respectful, powerful, entertaining and beautifully executed. More than a wonderful movie, it is a template for gently and effectively battling the forces of the far left, as those forces work to destroy us, forces that have told so many lies for so many decades, that they are believed by far too many good people.
D'Souza exposes these terrible dark lies, first, by reporting them:
"The wealth and abundance of American life are not earned, they're stolen."
"Thievery was a critical element to the expansion of American empire."
"This is a nation founded on genocide and built on the backs of slaves."
and many others.
He then respectfully listens as prominent members of the far left elaborate, and through the course of his film, Dinesh D'Souza exposes the lies, putting them in their true context, and illuminating them in the light of truth, through powerful, entertaining, and inspiring examples. He is compelling.
Please, gather your friends to see America, Imagine a World Without Her. Conservatives will find it uplifting. Some good liberals will be enlightened, and those of the far left, who seek to fundamentally transform our nation, will attack it. Still, in the words of Winston Churchill,
"The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is."
America, Imagine a World Without Her, teaches us by example, how to fight that malice and displace that ignorance, through compassion and understanding for, and conversation with, those who have been so terribly, and disastrously misled.
Each of us must choose, liberty, or slavery. Some will work and vote to retain their liberty, to control their own lives. Others will sell their liberty for a pittance, settling for unearned welfare checks, volunteering to wear their chains of slavery. This movie clarifies our choices.
Dinesh D'Sousa is not a Washington, a Lincoln, or a Reagan, but a man who builds on that which those great men gave us. I am no D'Souza, but through this post, I build on his gift to do my small part of this great work. I ask that you to do the same.
I saw the movie last night, bought the book, "America, Imagine a World Without Her", on my way home, and created this blog before getting to sleep. Soon I'll be adding archived posts from my old blogsite, and creating new posts as we move through the next two critical election cycles.
Dinesh D'Suza lit a fire under me, and I'm sure from the reactions I saw in the theater, and those I've heard on Hugh Hewett, that his inspiring film is raising an army to share the truth about our America, our "Land of the Free," our "Home of the Brave," with those among us who who are still fooled by the lies, those among us who choose to sell their liberty for a handout, accepting the chains of slavery offered by the left.
