A friend had me check out the Google Freedom to Fascism (can also hit the website). It was very thought provoking and has me curious about a number of things. Like any video of this type, it's left to the person watching to find reality. I don't present it here as a fact, truth, or my personal belief -- but as a challenge to your own beliefs.
It's a 2 hour watch, and may be in your local theaters, and worth sitting through just to have yourself left with that "If half of this is true, it's frightening" feeling.
