Documentaries often act as amazing catalysts to not only spread awareness about important issues, but inspire action and change. They bring light to various social issues that might not otherwise be getting the attention they deserve, and provide information and education on what we can do in our own lives to help create change. Raising awareness is the first step toward creating change on this planet, and knowledge is power.

Netflix has become an effective space for hosting many important documentaries that you might not have discovered on your own, sharing a wide array of documentaries on many different important issues worldwide. There are too many to put into just one list, so this is essentially part two of one I put together last year called “10 Documentaries Streaming On Netflix Now That Can Change Your Life.”

--> Our Journalism Is Moving - Our investigative journalism and reporting is moving to our new brand called The Pulse. Click here to stay informed.

1. DMT: The Spirit Molecule

I was absolutely flabbergasted after seeing this documentary a few years ago. It focuses on groundbreaking research conducted on the hallucinogenic substance found in almost all living things — DMT. This film follows several participants in a study to observe what happens while under the influence of the most potent hallucinogenic substance known to man. Prepare to be astounded with the descriptions of what these participants see and where they go. This is a beautiful film.

2. Small Is Beautiful: A Tiny House Documentary

The tiny house movement is growing rapidly as millennials and many others are deciding to challenge the American dream and opt for something more affordable and sustainable. Owning a tiny home offers more freedom; it also challenges mass consumerism, as owning a tiny home means having less room to store unnecessary items. This documentary dives deep into the potential benefits opting for this alternative housing solution can offer. It is important to be aware of the many options that are available to us, instead of what we have been led to believe is the only option, so that we can make the best decision for ourselves.

3. A Plastic Ocean

There is no doubt about it: Our oceans are extremely polluted with plastic waste and other toxic substances. It is a sad truth, but it will never be solved if we continue on as we have been and keep ignoring this problem.

From PlasticOceans.org: “Plastic Oceans has assembled a team of the world’s top scientists and leading film makers to produce a powerful, high-end documentary in high definition ‘A Plastic Ocean.’ This will play a key role in sending out the message to the world.”

And indeed it does. This is a must-see documentary that will spark awareness and inspire change.

4. Sirius

Are we alone in the Universe? Are there other beings out there that our governments know of and are potentially working with? If so, why are they keeping these secrets from us? These questions and more are answered in this thought-provoking documentary that focuses on the life and work of established UFO researcher Dr. Steven Greer and his claims of existing energy technologies that have the capacity to change the world.

5. Citizenfour

I cannot say enough good things about this documentary. I had not heard about it until I saw that it had won an Oscar for Best Documentary in 2015. After hearing the acceptance speech and learning what it was about, I knew I needed to check it out, and I’m so glad I did. This documentary covers the Edward Snowden leaks as they are happening. You get to have an inside look at who he is, what he knows, and what he is risking to make this important information available to you. Edward Snowden is a true American hero in my eyes and this documentary does a wonderful job of delivering his story to the world. The Academy Award is much deserved.

6. Prescription Thugs

This documentary provides an in-depth look into the industry that is “big-pharma” and the corruption behind many pharmaceuticals, pharmaceutical representatives, doctors and their commissions, and the prescription pain medication addiction crisis in America. This film is sure to make you question whether prescription medications primarily serve us or those who sell them.

7. Global Food Waste

There is no doubt about it: Food waste across the globe is completely out of control and at an all-time high. This short documentary exposes some of the dirtiest secrets in the food industry and provides eye-opening statistics on how much food is wasted on our planet annually and the shocking reasons why. In a time where not everyone gets to eat every day, how can we even come close to justifying this waste?

8. The Cove

This is one of the highest-rated documentaries of all time. It also won an Oscar for the 2009 Best Documentary. It focuses on the massive capture and slaughter of dolphins in Taiji, Japan, and the importance of raising awareness about this extremely important issue.

9. What’s With Wheat?

What’s with wheat? This documentary raises an important question. Why are more people becoming sensitive or intolerant to wheat and developing severe gastrointestinal diseases and illness? We’ve been eating wheat for thousands of years, so why now are we developing these sensitivities? Has wheat itself changed? Is there a level of corruption behind the modern-day wheat industry? Much like sugar, wheat is in almost all processed foods, but the wheat being used is stripped of its nutritional value. This documentary addresses these concerns and more, and provides us with the proper tools to maintain our health, along with suggestions on what products to avoid.

10. Pink Ribbons Inc.

This is an excellent documentary exposing the corruption behind the breast cancer charity industry specifically, but inevitably all cancer charities as well. Where does the money really go? Are these industries too focused on the cure and not enough on prevention? What do we need to know before donating to a charity?

From imdb.com:

Breast cancer has become the poster child of corporate cause-related marketing campaigns. Countless women and men walk, bike, climb and shop for the cure. Each year, millions of dollars are raised in the name of breast cancer, but where does this money go and what does it actually achieve? Pink Ribbons, Inc. Is a feature documentary that shows how the devastating reality of breast cancer, which marketing experts have labeled a “dream cause,” becomes obfuscated by a shiny, pink story of success.

Have some suggestions to add to the list? Please share in the comments section! Please share this list with your friends and family, or anyone who needs a good wake-up call.

Much Love.

An uncovered Australian report performed by their Department of Defence. “Scientific Intelligence — General — Unidentified Flying Objects” is trending again. Those who have done extensive research on UFOs will find the Australian version of disclosure to be far more intellectually honest than the American version. Albeit it was conducted decades ago.

According to ex-US intelligence official Luis Elizondo, the Defense Department’s Inspector General is presently conducting three reviews. The inquiries vary from the Department of Defense’s handling of UFO claims to Elizondo’s alleged whistleblower retribution. The open IG cases are crucial to Australia’s report because they establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US Department of Defense is being dishonest and shady when it comes to the UFO subject. For decades, Australia has been a loyal friend of the United States. Within Australia’s boundaries, they share a military installation (Pine Gap). When a close defense ally’s intelligence agencies determined that the US was not being intellectually honest in its approach, perhaps it is reasonable to conclude that there is more to the tale than the 144 incidents studied since 2004 by the UAPTF.

The CIA became alarmed at the overloading of military communications during the mass sightings of 1952 and considered the possibility that the USSR may take advantage of such a situation.

Australian UFO study.

According to the summary, OSI, acting through the Robertson-Panel, encouraged the USAF to use Project Blue Book to publicly “debunk” UFOs. In a tragic twist of fate, when Australian authorities sought explanations from the US Air Force, the allegation was debunked. The authors of the study were depicted as conspiratorial and even crazy by the US Air Force. Ross Coulthart reported this, and it may be heard in a recent Project Unity interview. Courthart is an award-winning investigative journalist who is drawn to forbidden subjects. He also stated on the same podcast that a senior US Navy official identified as Nat Kobitz told him that the US had been in the midst of reverse-engineering numerous non-human craft. According to his obituary, Mr. Kobitz was a former Director of Research and Development at Naval Sea Systems Command.

PGA Tour To End COVID Testing For Both Vaccinated & Non-Vaccinated Players

CE Staff Writer 4 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The PGA Tour has announced that it will stop testing players every week, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not.

  • Reflect On:

    Are PCR tests appropriate to identify infectious people? Should people who are healthy and not sick be tested at all, anywhere?

Before you begin...

The picture you see above is of John Rahm, a professional golfer on the PGA tour being carted off the golf course after tournament officials told him he had COVID. He was healthy and had no symptoms, yet was forced to withdraw from the tournament. He was told in front of the camera’s, and a big scene was made out of the event. You would think something like that, especially when you are a big time sports figure, would be done behind closed doors with some privacy.

Earlier on in June a spokesperson for the PGA Tour said that more than 50 percent of players on the PGA tour have been vaccinated. Although it seems that the majority of players on the tour will be fully vaccinated judging by this statement, it does leave a fairly large minority who won’t be, and that’s something we’re seeing across the globe as COVID vaccine hesitancy remains high for multiple reasons.

We are pleased to announce, after consultation with PGA Tour medical advisors, that due to the high rate of vaccination among all constituents on the PGA Tour, as well as other positively trending factors across the country, testing for COVID-19 will no longer be required as a condition of competition beginning with the 3M Open. – PGA tour Senior VP Tyler Dennis

The tour recently announced that the testing of players every week will stop starting in July for both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. This was an unexpected announcement given the fact that, at least it seems in some countries, vaccinated individuals will enjoy previous rights and freedoms that everyone did before the pandemic. Travelling without need to quarantine and possibly in the future not having to be tested could be a few of those privileges. Others may include attending concerts, sporting events, or perhaps even keeping their job depending on whether or not their employer deems it to be mandatory, if that’s even legally possible. We will see what happens.

Luckily for professional golfers, regardless of their vaccination status they won’t have to worry about testing positive for COVID, especially if they’re not sick. This is the appropriate move by the PGA tour, who is represented by their players and it’s a move that the players themselves may have had a say in. It’s important because PCR tests are not designed nor are they appropriate for identifying infectious people. A number of scientists have been emphasizing this since the beginning of the pandemic. More recently, a letter to the editor published in the Journal of infection explain why more than half of al “positive” PCR tests are likely to have been people who are not infectious, otherwise known as “false positives.”

This is why the Swedish Public Health agency has a notice on their website explaining how and why polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are not useful for determining if someone is infected with COVID or if someone can transmit it to others, and it’s better to use someone who is actually showing symptoms as a judgement call of whether or not they could be infected or free from infection.

PCR tests using a high cycle threshold are extremely sensitive. An article published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that among positive PCR samples with a cycle count over 35, only 3 percent of the samples showed viral replication. This can be interpreted as, if someone tests positive via PCR when a Ct of 35 or higher is used, the probability that said person is actually infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97 percent. This begs the question, why has Manitoba, Canada, for example, using cycle thresholds of up to 45 to identify “positive” people?

When it comes to golf, the fact that spread occurring in an outdoor setting is highly unlikely could have been a factor, but it’s also important to mention that asymptomatic spread within one’s own household is also considerably rare. It really makes you wonder what’s going on here, doesn’t it?
