How long will you comply?


A little history - from Badnarik (6 mins)



But don't you worry, no one over here ever abuses their power... right? (3:40)

I totally agree that many police officers abuse their power, but we didn't hear the entire tape. The young man could have mouthed off to him before the officer lost his cool.

Sorry, for this second post, but I just watched the video and it's full of baloney. I have to say this and I hope you don't mind.

First I want to tell you I agree with what he says, but not how he presents his views. We need to stand up and say "No" to our leaders, remind them they work for the people, and protest when our rights are violated. But he would sound more credible to me if he used historical fact & didn't fabricate stories to get his point across. Not only 6 million Jews were killed. 15 million others were murdered for being Catholic, gay, handicapped, or just because a Nazi felt like shooting a family to death. Protests from the Jews would have done very little in Germany in the late 1930s. The first step a society must do is prohibit the confiscation of weapons by the government so they can fight back. How could they fight back? The German Army killed 20 million Russians, so saying that some Jewish families who were business people, artists, musicians teachers, etc. let Hitler exterminate them is a bit of a stretch.

Also, he said Jews proudly wore the yellow Star of David. Where does he get this drek? Most Jews know that for centuries that badge of humiliation was used by anti-semitic rulers who wanted to shame them and fill them with fear. In some parts of Europe they were forced to wear a horned hat, which is why so many ignorant people think Jews have horns. Sure they wore it, because they didn't want Nazi soldiers to beat the crap out of them. He seems to be portraying the holocaust victims as idiots who complacently let the Nazis send them off to concentration camps as if they were going on vacation. Rubbish.

On the first video: I agree, but you can't put a full account of history in 6 mins. Otherwise, he would have had to include the earlier targets (Roma, the Poles, the Communists) ... the genesis from the treaty of Versailles (and the politics of the "Great Game") ... well soon it becomes a documentary and the point of it is lost. Which is why few people watch them. :-)
On the second video: I think if the kid was mouthy, the officer might have cause to haul him in (disorderly conduct). The officer *doesn't* have the right to threaten him with fake charges. When you take up the power of a gun and badge, you give up the right to "lose your cool".
