"Collapse" was the documentary that led me to the research which led me to "Jekyll Island" which led to more research which led me to ZH.

waking up is hard to do. if Collapse (Michael C. Ruppert I presume?) was your entry point you went crash course.

the good news is that there is good news.

The bad news?

"conspiracy theorists" tend to be right.

Right on man, that was the one.  Waking up was a punch  to the solar plexus, but a fight for liberty and the freedom of the mind gained from understanding how it works is warm sun on my face.

who are we to say other wise?
here, something simultaneously stimulating
and enlightening yet misunderstood and
eternally frustrating.

Not a documentary, but an excellent book / audiobook is Robert A Caro's "The Power Broker" about Robert Moses.  Huge read, but it immensely educational on the ways of power.  It provides both a warning about and a template for power & control.  No surprise that Obama read it when he was 22.

President Barack Obama, after awarding Mr. Caro a National Humanities Medal, said "I think about Robert Caro and reading The Power Broker back when I was 22 years old and just being mesmerized, and I'm sure it helped to shape how I think about politics." In 2010, Mr. Caro was also inducted into the New York State Writers Hall of Fame. David Klatell, dean of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, has recommended the book to new students to familiarize themselves with New York City and the techniques of investigative reporting.[4]

The 2009 documentary film "American Casino" should have been on the list

Soprano Alma Gluck ~ My Old Kentucky Home (1914)

The sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home
Tis summer, the darkies are gay
The corn top's ripe and the meadow's in bloom
While the birds make music all the day
The young folks roll on the little cabin floor
All merry, all happy and bright
By 'n by hard times come a-knocking at the door
Then my old Kentucky home good night

Weep no more, my lady
Oh, weep no more, today
We will sing one song for the old Kentucky home
For the old Kentucky home far away.

They hunt no more for the 'possum and the coon,
On meadow, the hill and the shore,
They sing no more by the glimmer of the moon,
On the bench by that old cabin door.
The day goes by like a shadow o'er the heart,
With sorrow where all was delight.
The time has come when the darkies have to part,
Then my old Kentucky home, good night.

The head must bow and the back will have to bend,
Wherever the poor folks may go
A few more days and the trouble will end,
In the field where sugar-canes may grow.
A few more days for to tote the weary load,
No matter, 'twill never be light
A few more days till we totter on the road,
Then my old Kentucky home, good night.

power is the capacity to control
and personally benefit from the
behavior and output of other
people. illusion, deceit and
fraud tend to dominate and become
normalized to the point of barbaric
failure; first individually then
