The Nuremberg Trials

On November 20, 1945, twenty-two surviving representatives of the Nazi elite stood before an international military tribunal at the Palace of Justice in Nuremberg, Germany, and charged with the systematic murder of millions of people.

The ensuing trial pitted U.S. chief prosecutor and Supreme Court judge Robert Jackson against Hermann Göring, the former head of the Nazi air force, whom Adolf Hitler had once named to be his successor. Jackson hoped that the trial would make a statement that crimes against humanity would never again go unpunished. Proving the guilt of the defendants, however, was more difficult than Jackson anticipated.

Floored: Into The Pit - Epic Trader Movie!

Enter a world where pandemonium reigns and reckless ambition rules: the trading floors in the financial canyons of downtown Chicago. Here, men use strange hand signals to buy and sell everything from pork belly to soybeans while wearing the weight of our complex economy on their shoulders - along with their neon jackets. It's a physical, bruising place, one where a slight gain creates heroes, rich beyond what their high school educations should ever afford. But the wrong move on the wrong day can ruin lives. At a time when millions have lost fortunes in the fickle stock market and fear abounds about the faltering financial system, FLOORED is a gripping, honest look behind the curtain of the trading floor that few have ever seen. Written by James Allen Smith

The German Wehrmacht

This is a goldmine I loved it!

This documentary from the History Channel is presented in five parts.

1. The approaching war and the emotions it generated, sometimes doubtful, more often an elation among the youngsters who like those snazzy uniforms and had no idea what they were getting into.

2. Reversal in Russia, when the foul facts began to be realized and both the officers and men wondered whether it was really true that the good guys always won.

3. Crimes and Genocide, some crimes being minor ones like murdering someone you don't like, while others are more nettlesome, like the attempt to exterminate entire populations based on their religion, politics, or sexual practices.

4. Resistance, meaning resistance within the ranks or, "How do you slow down a juggernaut that is trundling towards a cliff?" Nothing of Sophie Scholl; this is strictly from inside the Army. 

5. The Bitter End, in which some Junker Field Marshals (like Model) commit altruistic suicide, like good soldiers, rather than surrender, while others take more active steps to end the war or get out from under. And the war does finally end. (PS: Kids, we won.) 

There is some interesting and new color footage of the Wehrmacht at work. There is none of the now-familiar footage from the concentration camps of pale, bony corpses being shoveled into mass graves, thank God. The film, by the way, deals almost exclusively with its eponymous subject -- the Wehrmacht or German Army. The regular Army had less to do with the more heinous acts, mostly providing guards. They were chiefly combat oriented. The SS and Gestapo were separate entities. Most of the time, we watch and listen to talking heads, sometimes participants and sometimes young historians, all of whom are pretty convincing.

Of some 150 German generals, about 46 wound up in relatively luxurious surroundings that served as a prison camp in England. The British had put them all together in order that they relax and speak to each other openly -- while their conversations were recorded secretly. (Reenactors reconstruct some of the exchanges.) Several ordinary soldiers and officers are shown in modern interviews.

The overall impression is one of attitudinal diversity. Among the generals, in particular, we're aware of an insoluble conflict between their duty as soldiers and their consciences as human beings. But we don't hear much philosophizing about ethics. It's not the sort of thing the authoritarian mind enjoys dwelling on. The usual response is to try to suppress any acknowledgment that you were part of an evil machine. "Suppress" is a fancy word for "forget." There is the expectable praise for the courage of the German soldiers, and an occasional remark like, "The killing of dissident men, well, that might have been necessary, but to do it IN PUBLIC and later to kill the women and children, that was going too far!" 

The men are far more blunt about it all, at least the ones who agreed to be interviewed for this project. They may have enjoyed marching through Czechoslovakia but as the pace of civilian deaths picked up and ordinary soldiers began to witness systematic exterminations, they thought it was disgusting. Every game is fun when you're winning. It's only when you lose that the experience becomes a little irritating.

This is a brilliant explanation of how banking works and it scary. I can see now why bitcoin will take over.

The sole purpose of this story is to explain the simple maths of reality and the current Banking System – that is – 100 plus NOTHING does NOT equal 105 – and that charging interest on something that is created out of nothing, makes it impossible to repay, giving great power to those who do create money out of nothing – ie the Banks. This story was written by Larry Hannigan in 1971 and uses a fictional character (Fabian) in the narrative.

Money is NOT a commodity, it is a system of debit-credit bookkeeping – nothing more. Banks create credit. It is a mistake to suppose that bank credit is created to any extent by the payment of money into the banks. A loan made by a bank is a clear addition to the amount of money in the community.

The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the People v. The Banks.

None of our problems will disappear until we correct the creation, supply and circulation of money. Once the money problem is solved, everything else will fall into place.

The Banker's Guide to Art - BBC Documentary 2016

Documentary taking an inside look at the high-stakes and sometimes murky world of art collecting.

In recent years, the value of London's art market has soared to unprecedented heights, driven by the nouveau riche of the financial world, whose money has poured into the bank accounts of dealers, galleries and auction houses.

Abraham Lincoln could be considered the greatest president America ever had, he was ernest, a visionary and heroic, he also earned the respect of the world but where are the hero's now asks reporter Jeremy Paxman.

Incredibly interesting and eye opening: Hyper Normalisation

HyperNormalisation is a film by British filmmaker Adam Curtis, it tells the incredible story of how we have managed to get to this bizarre time of uncertainty and confusion, a time where we see those who are meant to be in power become paralysed, searching for answers.

Curtis argues the case that ever since the 1970’s, those in power i.e. governments, financier, and technological utopians have given up on the complicated “real world” in favour for a simplified “fake world”, one which is controlled by corporations and merely kept stable by politicians. However, as time moves forward we seem to keep witnessing events that appear to be inexplicable and out of control, take the election of Donald Trump for example or Brexit, perhaps the War in Syria or the countless number of random bomb attacks.

Curtis explains not only why events such as these keep happening but also why we and our political leaders can’t seem to understand them. The film reveals that we have all retreated into a simplified “fake” version of the world because it is all around us and we choose to accept it as normal.

The Cult Next Door

Critically acclaimed director Vanessa Engle has spent the last three years putting this film together in order to expose the extraordinary tale of a bizarre cult which came to light back in 2013 after a sensational news story broke. It involved three women who emerged from a small flat located in Brixton, south London, after being held captive for decades.

This cult can be traced back to the 1970s when it’s leader Aravindan Balakrishnan, who was a student at the time, formed a small political sect. He believed in an international communist revolution and therefore wanted to follow in the teachings of China’s Chairman Mao.

The Cult Next Door includes exclusive interviews with two of the women who managed to escape, these are Aisha Wahab, who is a 72 year old Malaysian woman and Katy Morgan-Davies, Balakrishnan’s daughter, who was brought up in captivity. This film provides an excellent vantage to see how this small left-wing group managed to evolve into a crazy cult.
