Stop the Machine

Let Your Life Be a Friction to Stop the Machine

 

Made by ClassWarFilms 
A brief and crucial history of the United States

We are more than pleased to introduce our audience to the important work of Lanny Cotler and Paul Edwards, two revolutionary audiovisual artists who simply excel at communicating the truths and ideas usually negated by the capitalist propaganda machine. Using a technique which reminds us of Ken Burns’ classic documentary The Civil War, the team has produced a series that, in its didactic power, can effectively guide would-be activists in future struggles. If you ever dreamed of seeing Howard Zinn’s People’s History on the screen, wait no more because this series by ClassWarFilms brings that much to the table and then some. This video, Let Your Life Be a Friction to Stop the Machine, is the foundational piece in the collection.

A very powerful indictment against all who still believe that the United States of America represents what is good and best for all people and lands. To be asleep through these rapidly changing times, where all children will have very difficult and limited futures is betrayal to one’s own humanity. No one else will change the world but you, in you own creative expression. When enough care enough to banish the word “struggle’ from their lexicon, and willingly put their lives on the line for change for the better, the world will change for the better. Tag your it!

Amazing echoes of Howard Zinn in the ‘history’ portion of the film. Very powerful stuff. It’s interesting that all the flag-waving nay-sayers among the comments here, actually only serve to reinforce the message of the film. Sorry, people, your bleating here is misplaced, but it does help solidify the sequence about the brainwashing of the ignorant by the mainstream media propaganda vehicles.

I’ve lost everything I ever had – not much by American Dream standards, but enough to placate and anesthetize. I now live month to month, in a rented room, and walk 3 miles to work to earn $2.50 more than my state’s minimum wage. That’s grand testimony from someone seated at the heart of the Empire.  This film, and your others, is a godsend and a spur.  Thank you for your dedicated work. I’ll be spreading your films via social media and word of mouth.

"The great question now is wether we can awaken from our long nightmare and face the terrifying and exhilarating prospect of living in reality without the false porps and dishonest constructs of a hoodwinked and dishonered people or wether we have internalized the falsity to such an extent that is has become a collective insanity....."
