Ok, here is the dilly with this monster of a film. Aaron Russo started a documentary trying to see if there was any truth to the claim that there is no law the requires Americans to pay income tax. He didn’t find a law, but then he uncovered a giant pile of lesser known government political dooky that ya gotta see. The direction isn’t all that great, but the message is too big and important to make it a bad film. This is literally Cannes standing ovation stuff. Prepare to lose some sleep over America: From Freedom to Fascism.
alphamonkey sez: By no means is America headed towards fascism, (indeed the correct term for the trend is Authoritarianism), but Hollywood producer Aaron Russo raises a number of points guaranteed to generate debate. I wholeheartedly disagree with the central point that we shouldn’t have to pay income tax, but there some interesting information in here)
