4th Branch – Immortal Technique

"It's like MK-ULTRA, controlling your brain. Suggestive thinking, causing your perspective to change. They wanna rearrange the whole point of view of the ghetto. The fourth branch of the government, want us to settle." The voice of racism preaching the gospel is devilish, A fake church called the prophet Muhammad a terrorist, Forgetting God is not a religion, but a spiritual bond, And Jesus is the most quoted prophet in the Qu'ran, They bombed innocent people, tryin' to murder Saddam, When you gave him those chemical weapons to go to war with Iran, This is the information that they hold back from Peter Jennings, Cause Condoleeza Rice is just a new age Sally Hemmings, I break it down with critical language ...

What Would Jesus Buy?

"We say 'stop shopping' just to get your attention. Certainly, nobody can stop shopping, but you can have a conscious about your shopping. Think about how it affects other people. Just explore the options, that's all we ask." What Would Jesus Buy? follows Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping Gospel Choir as they go on a cross-country mission to save Christmas from the Shopocalypse: the end of mankind from consumerism, over-consumption and the fires of eternal debt! From producer Morgan Spurlock (SUPER SIZE ME) and director Rob VanAlkemade comes a serious docu-comedy about the commercialization of Christmas. Bill Talen (aka Reverend Billy) was a lost idealist who hitchhiked to New York City only to find that Times Square was ...

Anthem, Part 2 – Blink 182

"Corporate leaders, politicians, Kids can't vote, adults elect them, Laws that rule the school and workplace, Signs that caution sixteen's unsafe, We really need to see this through, We never wanted to be abused, We'll never give up, it's no use, If we're fucked up, you're to blame." Everything has fallen to pieces, Earth is dying, help me Jesus, We need guidance, we've been misled, Young and hostile but not stupid, Corporate leaders, politicians, kids can't vote, adults elect them, Laws that rule the school and workplace, Signs that caution sixteen's unsafe, We really need to see this through, We never wanted to be abused, We'll never give up, it's no use, If we're fucked up, you're to blame, Let this ...

2+2=5 – Radiohead

"All hail to the thief, All hail to the thief, But I'm not, But I'm not, But I'm not, But I'm not, Don't question my authority or put me in the box, 'Cause I'm not, 'Cause I'm not." Are you such a dreamer, To put the world to rights, I'll stay home forever, Where two and two always makes a five, I'll lay down the tracks, Sandbag and hide, January has April showers, And two and two always makes a five, It's the devil's way now, There is no way out, You can scream and you can shout, It is too late now, Because you have not been payin' attention, Payin' attention, Payin' attention, Payin' attention, You have not been payin' ...

American Idiot – Green Day

"Don't want to be an American idiot. Don't want a nation under the new media. And can you hear the sound of hysteria? The subliminal mind fuck America." Don't want to be an American idiot, Don't want a nation under the new media, And can you hear the sound of hysteria? The subliminal mind fuck America. Welcome to a new kind of tension, All across the alien nation, Where everything isn't meant to be okay. Television dreams of tomorrow. We're not the ones who're meant to follow. For that's enough to argue. Well maybe I'm the faggot America. I'm not a part of a redneck agenda. Now everybody do the propaganda. And sing along to the age of paranoia.

Mosh – Eminem

"No more blood for oil, we got our own battles to fight on our own soil, No more psychological warfare, to trick us to thinking that we ain't loyal, If we don't serve our own country, we're patronizing a hero. Look in his eyes its all lies..." I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, And to the Republic for which it stands, One nation under God, Indivisible.. It feels so good to be back.. I scrutinize every word, memorize every line, I spit it once, refuel and re-energize and rewind, I give sight to the blind, my insight through the mind, I exercise my right to express when I feel it's time, It's just all ...

Secret Government: The Constitution in Crisis, The

"Secrecy is the freedom that zealots dream of; no watchman to check the door, no accountant to check the books, no judge to check the law. The secret government has no constitution. The rules it follows are the rules it makes up." This is the full length 90 min. version of Bill Moyer's 1987 scathing critique of the criminal subterfuge carried out by the Executive Branch of the United States Government to carry out operations which are clearly contrary to the wishes and values of the American people. The ability to exercise this power with impunity is facilitated by the National Security Act of 1947. The thrust of the exposé is the Iran-Contra arms and drug-running operations which flooded the streets ...

No Logo: Brands, Globalization & Resistance

"When you have a culture where ideas are not treated as being connected to belief or action but are just commodity and just to be used and attach – “oh, diversity, let’s use that to sell Benetton sweaters, community, let’s use that for Starbucks” – the ideas themselves are devalued." –Naomi Klein In the age of the brand, logos are everywhere. But why do some of the world's best-known brands find themselves on the wrong end of the spray paint can -- the targets of anti-corporate campaigns by activists and protesters? No Logo, based on the best-selling book by Canadian journalist and activist Naomi Klein, reveals the reasons behind the backlash against the increasing economic and cultural reach of multinational companies. Analyzing ...

World on Fire – Sarah McLachlan

"The world's on fire it's more then I can handle, I'll tap into the water try and bring my share, Try to bring more, more then I can handle, Bring it to the table, Bring what I am able." Hearts are worn in these dark ages, You're not alone in these stories pages, The light has fallen amongst the living and the dying, And I'll try to hold it in, Yeah I'll try to hold it in, The world's on fire it's more then I can handle, I'll tap into the water try and bring my share, Try to bring more, more then I can handle, Bring it to the table, Bring what I am able, I watch the heavens but ...

Imagine – John Lennon

"Imagine there's no countries, It isn't hard to do, Nothing to kill or die for, And no religion too, Imagine all the people, Living life in peace." Imagine there's no heaven, It's easy if you try, No hell below us, Above us only sky, Imagine all the people, Living for today... Imagine there's no countries, It isn't hard to do, Nothing to kill or die for, And no religion too, Imagine all the people, Living life in peace...
