The idea of "The New World Order" is nothing new. Conspiracy theorists have been shouting about "One-World Government" for a long time. There are a lot of people who really believe that the UN or some organization like it will control the World one day.
We have heard about the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, or the Bilderberg Group. The so-called "mainstream media" has ignored the "threat" according to the theorists, but with the Internet we now have an opportunity to pass the word along.
The constant wars, the current economic crisis, and the quest for oil has just fanned the flames of the theorists. Did our government cause 9/11? Did they kill Kennedy? Is the Washington Monument a Masonic power source? Waco? Katrina? Ruby Ridge? Are they all part of some conspiracy? But, this documentary is not about the theories, but about the people who spend their time promoting them. You can dismiss them as crackpots, but they are real people. What drives them to do this? Is it the same as those that ring your doorbell with bibles or religious tracts? Is it any different than those of us who scream that you gotta see this movie? The people in this film seem sincere. Are they just dupes of an angry Austin radio talk show host (Alex Jones)? As much as they try to make these characters real, it is still hard not to laugh at them, especially when they start telling their followers to buy guns and ammunition.
It was very informative and no matter which side of the fence you are on, it is worth knowing about.
