Thank you so much! I can't take credit for the editing; I only suggested possible footage to the editors. I'm thrilled with what they accomplished. And I really appreciate your kind words!

I don't know why the lawlessness, violence and cop-hating of the situation in Ferguson is listed along with standing up to oppressive regimes. I stopped watching after that.


Police officers doing their job to prevent lawless, violent thugs from continuing their lawless, violent behavior is not an oppressive regime. It's called rule of law.

To clarify regarding Ferguson: I see clear parallels between the events in Ferguson and those depicted in The Hunger Games. Where citizens of the United States - and, indeed, the world - expected to see a police response in Missouri, they instead saw a military response. Ferguson is only one recent and highly visible example of the increasing militarization of the U.S. police. The way the authorities mistreated and attempted to suppress the press in Ferguson offers another compelling point of comparison.

I would recommend checking out "We Awaken to National Militarization of Police, Not Only in Ferguson," by Cato Institute Senior Fellow Nat Hentoff, as a reader-friendly commentary about these issues - from, I should point out, a conservative point of view. He not only offers a concise appraisal, but he also points readers to the work being done by Constitutional lawyer John Whitehead of the The Rutherford Institute, Walter Olson of the Cato Institute, Senator Rand Paul, and others on this very topic.

What a great vid! It says so much about what's going on around the world–and here, no matter how much people try to fool themselves.

I can't watch it now but I definitely want to watch the Mockingjay one later. I just found out the Thailand connection today and it's just fascinating.

I didn't know you had such a presence on YouTube!! Bookmarking at least one and hoping I can find the rest that way. ;)

Just to add, because I finally got around to watching it, that I thoroughly enjoyed The Expulsion of the Acadians. Evangeline has been my favorite poem since assigned as a "to be read" back in grammar school. It's beautiful, and yet so terribly tragic. The ending, especially, gets to me every time. But I never knew the total history, as to why it happened in the first place. Your video explained that and much more. So thanks!

Oh, this makes me so happy! Thank you very much for watching it and for letting me know that you liked it. :D I love Evangeline, too!
