Taxi to the Dark Side

Filed under: film, politics — Tags: — codesmithy @ 9:05 am

Again, there are some dubious copyright issues here, so this might get taken down soon. However, google video has “Taxi to the Dark Side,” Alex Gibney’s academy award winning documentary.  The film leaves no doubt who the real criminals are, nor the utter importance to reawaken the humanistic foundations this nation was founded on.  We are deluding ourselves if we believe we can win hearts and minds adopting methods that dehumanize those we perceive as our enemies.  America needs to be about something more than lines on the map.  It needs to be about ideas and human dignity.  A fight that we have been losing recently, and something the people of this country need to restore.

We are better than this.
