Cultural Evolution Imperative

A kind of documentary on local community-access TV, an indispensable source of candor and depth-journalism. Buncha weird sci fi stuff mixed with persuasive consideration of the military-industrial complex and the U.S. program to militarize space. Clips from old movies and TV shows, with voiceover dialogue that didn't come near synchronization with the lips of the actors, a Woody Allen special, edited in with original material, so you're kinda snickering as it unwinds and then it lays down:

"Two thousand years of God, morality and patriotism and what has it gotten us? Horror, hatred and suffering beyond description."

Enough to drive a person into dysteleology.

But one has to think positive, without that all is lost.

Appalled, but not giving up on democracy.

Didn't catch the title of the show, surfed into it, emailed TV station to ask but no reply, thing was on for more than two hours, title cards after each set piece, Part IV, Part V, etc.

And these Homeland Security guys constantly trying to force their way in the door here, what a pain in the ass, I use rolled up newspaper to whack them as they barge in on me and drive them back outside. Then they start on the windows. I can't leave the house for more than 15 minutes at a time or something goes missing.

Since when is serial home invasion and burglary patriotic? Why can't they be satisfied with the phone and computer taps?
