"What A Nightmare"

I think this is the cruelest yet most honest take of what human beings have succeeded in doing to planet earth. Where it doesn't create any answers, it sure as hell creates some stark questions about our stupid unsustainable lifestyle.

If it is doing its job properly...well, you decide... 

What A Way To Go: Life At The End Of Empire (2007) :-

Re: "What A Nightmare"

Hi Paul,

I've seen it two or three times, and whilst it is a hard hitting doco, most of which I agree with, I felt it was spoilt by the first third or so which I think is just self indulgent twaddle.....

Still worth watching...

Re:What A Way To Go: Life At The End Of Empire

Mike,

I hear you. If the entire film could have been produced as tightly as this excerpt offering from this You Tube user, I feel it would have been a sure fire hit and been the message everyone needs to hear and see. I'm sure you agree that this particular meme is very powerful though? If you take time out to read the You Tube comments thread (except for the odd knuckle head?), there's some well rounded discussion on it that my thread has so far alluded. A pity...Frown

Thanks for your input anyway,

Take Care,

Paul

The movie is gone now. The server said "it has gone away"

Hi M,

The film is still in place and working fine...

Sometimes I find that You Tube films are slow to load when they're linked to a Chris Martenson thread. If you go directly to You Tube and write in the name of the film there, it'll generally play much better tooWink.

Also, do you own an account there?

My Best,

Paul

Re: "What A Nightmare"

The title of this thread caught my eye. 

Read the "Risk to Europe" section of the following - http://www.peakprosperity.com/forum/while-rome-burns-john-mauldin/14057

Seems a little portentous huh?  End of Empires?

Re: "What A Nightmare"

Hello Paul,

I copied the text over to a document about two hours after Chris first posted, and it is now filed away on my laptop.  Thanks for linking it into this thread - I hope more get a crack at it - must read IMO.

Hi Rick,

If you copied the transcript to hard-drive then you may have missed Amanda adding the live speech to the thread. The live version is more darkly ironic; vitriolic and starkly vicerol in its humour!!

Enjoy...Cool
