Edward Snowden film opens


CITIZENFOUR 
  
A film by Laura Poitras





A riveting first-person look at how Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald first met with whistleblower Edward Snowden in Hong Kong where he gave them documents showing widespread abuses of power by the National Security Administration. An unprecedented fly-on-the-wall look at one of the most groundbreaking moments in recent history, CITIZENFOUR (executive produced by Academy Award(r)-winner Steven Soderbergh) had its world premiere as a Special Presentation in the Main Slate at the New York Film Festival. 

 In January 2013, filmmaker Laura Poitras (recipient of the 2012 MacArthur Genius Fellowship and co-recipient of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service) was several years into making a film about surveillance in the post-9/11 era when she started receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as "citizen four," who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by the NSA and other intelligence agencies.  In June 2013, she and Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely sui generis in the history of cinema: a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes. 

CITIZENFOUR opens October 24 in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco,
and at E Street Cinema in Washington, D.C. with a national release to follow

We're also asking our supporters to share this link and invite people to donate. Venmo donations can be sent to radarvswolf. Paypal and Square Cash donations should be sent to radarvswolf@gmail.com

A personal message from Bob Podolski...
Bob Podolski
Whether you'd rather "fix" government or prefer to replace it with a highly ethical system of self-governance, you will need to employ a new proven method of organizing. If you come to my free presentation on Libertopia Friday, you'll be introduced to two related ways to bring this about.

The first is a small group format that is inherently ethical, makes unanimous decisions, and can be extended to large groups for any ethical purpose. Such small groups are called "Octologues" , and their larger counterparts are called HoloMats. In these groupings participants have no authority over one another. So they are non-hierarchic and non-bureaucratic - yet very effective and maximally creative.

The second is a process called Soul-Bonding that recognizes how all violence begins with childhood trauma - and teaches us how to recover from such ill effects so we can, over time, eliminate child abuse and thereby eliminate violence - which is essential to a free and ethical society.

While the Friday meeting merely presents the basic concepts underlying these two methodologies, the next two days you can attend two experiential workshops designed to get you started using this extraordinary lore. The Saturday workshop will provide 6 hours of instruction in Soul-Bonding and the Sunday workshop is 6 hours on the formation of HoloMats of Octologues.

Discount pricing of these workshops at Libertopia is $75 each or $125 for the two. If you elect to pay before November the price of the package is just $100. To reserve your place at either one or both of these workshops, call me at 602-861-3097.

I look forward to meeting you at Libertopia - the best gathering I know for those who love freedom and creativity.

Cordially,

Bob

Richard Gamble  “In Search of the City on a Hill:
The Making & Unmaking of an American Myth”

Nations adopt narratives to explain why they are different and exceptional. As nations are different, so are their narratives different. Interest groups compete to articulate the national narrative. George Orwell said: “Whoever controls the present controls the past and whoever controls the past controls the future.”
In 1917, Anglophile Woodrow Wilson took the nation to war to “make the world safe for democracy.” He propounded an American civil religion that replaced the founding narrative of self-restraint and limits on power. His militant "idealism" -- as developed and reinforced by humanitarian interventionists, neoconservatives, and assertive nationalists -- animates our foreign policy debates almost a century later. We have to “do something” constantly because Americans are a chosen people indispensable to world order. Ronald Reagan jack-hammered the metaphor “City on a Hill” into the Wilsonian narrative that America is “a force for good in the world.” George W. Bush gave this kind of thinking a strong boost, and Democrats have embraced America as "the indispensable nation."
 In “In Search of the City on a Hill”, Professor Richard Gamble shows how Reagan turned the Christian metaphor into a secular metaphor with a meaning diametrically opposed to what Massachusetts Governor John Winthrop meant in his Model of Christian Charity four centuries ago. Today Republican and Democratic politicians invoke the phrase repeatedly as a shorthand for an American exceptionalism that justifies the use of American military force around the world. Recovering the biblical meaning of the Sermon on the Mount and the Puritan context of the "city on a hill" is a good way to understand how the current American exceptionalism represents a drastic break with America's moral, religious and political origins. The historical Winthrop -- if he were here today -- would be a foreigner in his own country.
Richard Gamble holds the Anna Margaret Ross Alexander Chair in History and Political Science at Hillsdale College. He is a contributing editor of The American Conservative.
