Top 18 Documentaries To Inspire Social Change

Published

on

Documentaries serve as excellent tools to help us learn about subjects we might never have come across or researched ourselves, or dive deeper into ones we’ve already explored.

In fact, documentaries are what triggered my own ‘awakening’ and my quest to find out what’s truly going on in the world and our purpose here within it. When I first dove into this world of alternative information and news I learned about so many topics, from corruption to consciousness and everything in between.

Documentaries were a wake-up call for me, and a way to become more informed on events occurring around the globe. The first step to creating change on this planet is raising awareness, and documentaries do so in an engaging and accessible way. Here is a list of the top documentaries I believe can inspire social change.

Cowspiracy

An inside look at the dramatic toll that animal agriculture has on our environment and the reasons no one is talking about it.

Fed Up

This film focuses on some of the leading causes of obesity in the U.S. and showcases just how much of an impact sugar, often hidden in processed foods and in staggering quantities, is contributing to this epidemic.

The Human Experiment

A very eye-opening and shocking film that exposes just how many chemicals we are being bombarded with each and every day. Many of these chemicals are completely unregulated and have not even been tested for safety, yet they are in virtually every thing we use and eat, and everywhere we go.

Citizenfour

Citizenfour uncovers the story of Snowden and the information from the NSA he obtained and released to the public. The filmmakers follow this brave whistleblower in realtime as the controversy unfolds. Truly gripping, this documentary is an absolute must-see if you would like to learn more about of the Snowden story, or if you just like really well-made documentaries.

Origins

This amazing film takes a look at our biological roots and explores the immense toll modern technology is taking on the environment. By over-sanitizing, we are drastically impacting not only the health of ourselves, but of our planet. If we don’t do something — and fast — the fate of the planet itself may be at risk.

What the Health?

The film exposes the collusion and corruption in government and big business that is costing us trillions of healthcare dollars, and keeping us sick. What the Health? is a surprising, and at times hilarious, investigative documentary that will be an eye-opener for anyone concerned about our nation’s health and Big Pharma’s stranglehold over it.

The Culture High

An in-depth look at marijuana prohibition, where it came from, and where it is going, this film covers the war on drugs in the United States. It explores both pro- and anti-marijuana legalization campaigns, and reveals the benefits and harms legalization could offer.

The True Cost

Where do your clothes come from? Do you ever wonder where they are manufactured, from what materials, and by whom? Stop for a minute to think of the major clothing chains that are in every large city — that is a lot of clothes. But what is the true cost of having cheap clothing that is only in style for one season? This documentary will answer that question and many more.

Prescription Thugs

This film delves into the prescription drug addiction crisis facing America today. Is there more to this than meets the eye? Should these drugs be legal and so readily prescribed by doctors? What’s in it for them? Find out the answers to these questions and more in this revealing documentary.

Illegal

This is a documentary about mothers in Brazil who, despite the risk, illegally use cannabis to treat their children’s cancer — and how it’s working. This documentary shows us that there are other options available, outside of the mainstream medicine, but some of them are illegal. Should these laws be changed worldwide to grant legal access to everyone to be able to heal?

Pink Ribbons Inc.

Based on a 2007 book titled Pink Ribbons Inc: Breast Cancer and the Politics of Philanthropy and written by Queen’s University professor Samantha King, the film explains the difference between the reality of the disease and the high-profile public perception of it, delivering eye-opening interviews from the chairman of the Susan G. Komen Foundation, Nancy Brinker, as well as women who have terminal breast cancer. It exposes the Run For The Cure fundraising event and brings up important points about the fear and suffering events such as these create. In an interview, one woman from a terminal cancer support group says, “The message is that if you just try really hard, you can beat it, while those who died, weren’t trying very hard.”

13th

This film explores the racial inequality within the United States and presents cold, hard evidence proving that today’s prison system is largely just a nicely packaged form of modern day slavery. It unfolds the corrupt justice system and takes an in-depth look at how people of colour, and specifically black people, are targeted and sent to prison for minor crimes, representing the highest percentage of people occupying U.S. prisons by a landslide.

I Am Jane Doe

This documentary explores a battle waged by furious mothers who are fighting for justice for their daughters who were sold into child sex trafficking. They are trying to hold someone responsible, and it has been an epic fight to do so. It shows us how child sex trafficking is something that can happen to any child no matter their age, race, or socioeconomic class.

Food, Inc.

Documentary filmmaker Robert Kenner examines how mammoth corporations have taken over all aspects of the food chain in the United States, from the farms where our food is grown to the chain restaurants and supermarkets where it’s sold. Narrated by author and activist Eric Schlosser, the film features interviews with average Americans about their dietary habits, commentary from food experts like Michael Pollan, and unsettling footage shot inside large-scale animal processing plants.

The War You Don’t See

A thought-provoking film on war and propaganda, The War You Don’t See challenges the media for the role they played in the Iraq, Afghanistan, and Israel/Palestine conflicts. It traces these conflicts back to World War One and may even change your perspective about the wars that are currently being fought today.

Ecological Consciousness

This documentary follows Andrew Faust, a man dedicated to teaching people how to apply permaculture in the urban landscape. He presents the knowledge he’s accumulated over the last 20 years as an educator and over eight years of living off the grid. Permaculture is a way of thinking, it’s a way of seeing, and what Andrew shares is the way of seeing ourselves as biological organisms who are deeply rooted in the life-matrix of the planet Earth.

The Choice Is Ours

This documentary explores the determinants of behaviour to dispel the myth of “human nature,” demonstrating that environment shapes behaviour. It illustrates how our social structures impose our values and behaviours and our global monetary system is obsolete and becoming increasingly insufficient to meet the needs of most people. It concludes with the vision of The Venus Project to build an entirely new world from the ground up, a “redesign of the culture” where all enjoy a high standard of living, free of servitude and debt, while also protecting the environment.

Neurons to Nirvana

An in-depth look at the current renaissance that is taking place in the realm of psychedelic substances for healing purposes. From addiction to PTSD, marijuana to LSD, this documentary explores these mind-altering substances and dives into the research being done to show that these substances are here to assist us, if we use them properly.

Our Biology Responds To Events Before They Even Happen

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Multiple experiments have shown strong evidence for precognition in several different ways. One of them comes in the form of activity within the heart and the brain responding to events before they even happen.

  • Reflect On:

    Do we have extra human capacities we are unaware of? Perhaps we can learn them, develop them, and use them for good. Perhaps when the human race is ready, we will start learning more.

Is precognition real? There are many examples suggesting that yes, it is. The remote viewing program conducted by the CIA in conjunction with Stanford University was a good example of that.  After its declassification in 1995, or at least partial declassification, the Department of Defense and those involved revealed an exceptionally high success rate:

To summarize, over the years, the back-and-forth criticism of protocols, refinement of methods, and successful replication of this type of remote viewing in independent laboratories has yielded considerable scientific evidence for the reality of the (remote viewing) phenomenon. Adding to the strength of these results was the discovery that a growing number of individuals could be found to demonstrate high-quality remote viewing, often to their own surprise… The development of this capability at SRI has evolved to the point where visiting CIA personnel with no previous exposure to such concepts have performed well under controlled laboratory conditions. (source)

The kicker? Part of remote viewing involves peering into future events as well as events that happened in the past.

It’s not only within the Department of Defense that we find this stuff, but a lot of science is emerging on this subject as well.

For example, a study (meta analysis) published in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience titled “Predicting the unpredictable: critical analysis and practical implications of predictive anticipatory activity” examined a number of experiments regarding this phenomenon that were conducted by several different laboratories. These experiments indicate that the human body can actually detect randomly delivered stimuli that occur 1-10 seconds in advance. In other words, the human body seems to know of an event and reacts to the event before it has occurred. What occurs in the human body before these events are physiological changes that are measured regarding the cardiopulmonary, the skin, and the nervous system.

A few years ago, the chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Dr. Dean Radin, visited the scientists over at HearthMath Institute and shared the results of one of his studies. Radin is also one of multiple scientists who authored the paper above. These studies, as mentioned above, tracked the autonomic nervous system, physiological changes, etc.

Scientists at HeartMath Institute (HMI) added more protocols, which included measuring participants’ brain waves (EEG), their hearts’ electrical activity (ECG), and their heart rate variability (HRV).

As HMI explains:

Twenty-six adults experienced in using HeartMath techniques and who could sustain a heart-coherent state completed two rounds of study protocols approximately two weeks apart. Half of the participants completed the protocols after they intentionally achieved a heart-coherent state for 10 minutes. The other half completed the same procedures without first achieving heart coherence. Then they reversed the process for the second round of monitoring, with the first group not becoming heart-coherent before completing the protocols and the second group becoming heart-coherent before. The point was to test whether heart coherence affected the results of the experiment.

Participants were told the study’s purpose was to test stress reactions and were unaware of its actual purpose. (This practice meets institutional-review-board standards.) Each participant sat at a computer and was instructed to click a mouse when ready to begin.

The screen stayed blank for six seconds. The participant’s physiological data was recorded by a special software program, and then, one by one, a series of 45 pictures was displayed on the screen. Each picture, displayed for 3 seconds, evoked either a strong emotional reaction or a calm state. After each picture, the screen went blank for 10 seconds. Participants repeated this process for all 45 pictures, 30 of which were known to evoke a calm response and 15 a strong emotional response.

The Results

The results of the experiment were fascinating to say the least. The participants’ brains and hearts responded to information about the emotional quality of the pictures before the computer flashed them (random selection). This means that the heart and brain were both responding to future events. The results indicated that the responses happened, on average, 4.8 seconds before the computer selected the pictures.

How mind-altering is that?

Even more profound, perhaps, was data showing the heart received information before the brain. “It is first registered from the heart,” Rollin McCraty Ph.D. explained, “then up to the brain (emotional and pre-frontal cortex), where we can logically relate what we are intuiting, then finally down to the gut (or where something stirs).”

Another significant study (meta-analysis) that was published in Journal of Parapsychology by Charles Honorton and Diane C. Ferrari in 1989 examined a number of studies that were published between 1935 and 1987. The studies involved individuals’ attempts to predict “the identity of target stimuli selected randomly over intervals ranging from several hundred million seconds to one year following the individuals responses.” These authors investigated over 300 studies conducted by over 60 authors, using approximately 2 million individual trials by more than 50,000 people. (source)

It concluded that their analysis of precognition experiments “confirms the existence of a small but highly significant precognition effect. The effect appears to be repeatable; significant outcomes are reported by 40 investigators using a variety of methodological paradigms and subject populations. The precognition effect is not merely an unexplained departure from a theoretical chance baseline, but rather is an effect that covaries with factors known to influence more familiar aspects of human performance.” (source)

The Takeaway

“There seems to be a deep concern that the whole field will be tarnished by studying a phenomenon that is tainted by its association with superstition, spiritualism and magic. Protecting against this possibility sometimes seems more important than encouraging scientific exploration or protecting academic freedom. But this may be changing.”
 Cassandra Vieten, PhD and President/CEO at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (source)

We are living in a day and age where new information and evidence are constantly emerging, challenging what we once thought was real or what we think we know about ourselves as human beings.  It’s best to keep an open mind. Perhaps there are aspects of ourselves and our consciousness that have yet to be discovered. Perhaps if we learn and grow from these studies, they can help us better ourselves and others.

The 5G Health Summit Starts Tomorrow (June 1st) – Reserve Your Free Spot Here

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A global online summit featuring doctors, scientists & activists addressing the health concerns of 5G technology and what people can do about it is set to take place the first week of June and it's free to sign up.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are safety concerns that've been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals called a "conspiracy theory?" Why is this idea ridiculed? Why don't our federal health regulatory agencies simply to some health safety testing before rolling it out?

Some of the world’s leading scientists, doctors and activists are gathering for a free online summit that begins on Monday June 1st and will run for approximately one week. The summit will dive into the health concerns of 5G technology, and why it’s a concern and what people can do about it. The summit is completely free to sign up and watch, and you can do so here.

We’ve also put together an E-book titled “Is 5G Safe? An Easy to Understand Guide” summarizing the published peer-reviewed research that is raising concerns about electromagnetic radiation that’s emitted from our favourite wireless devices, cell phones and more, as well as novel 5G technology.  It’s a great resource that you can share with family or friends who desire to look at the proof, research, evidence and concerns that thousands of doctors and scientists have been and are creating awareness about all over the globe.  We wrote it in language designed to be simple and factual.

Once you sign up for the summit, you get access to the free E-book.

It’s quite strange that any researched journalist could dismiss the health concerns of 5G technology, as well as 4G and 3G, when there are nearly 10,000 peer-reviewed scientific studies that raise cause for concern. A study published in 2019 in Frontiers in Public Health is one of many that raises concerns about 5G technology, explaining how there is no safety testing, and that in vivo and in vitro studies regarding this type of technology and it’s predecessors have shown that it’s harmful to human health, even at levels below current “safety” limits.

At the end of the day, whether you believe this type of technology is safe or you don’t, would it not be in the best interests of everybody to have the  technology go through some type of required safety testing? Shouldn’t any technology that has any sort of biological effect be put through safety testing? Why has there not been any safety testing?

In December 2018, US. Senator Richard Blumenthal and U.S. Representative Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) sent a letter to FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr seeking answers regarding potential health risks posed by new 5G wireless technology. At  a hearing, that took place last year, Blumenthal criticized Carr for failing to provide answers, and did the same thing to other industry representatives that were in attendance for not putting the technology through safety testing. You can watch a clip of that hearing and read more about it, here.

How can our federal health regulatory agencies approve products that are clearly a cause for concern?

This is why the summit is going to be such a great resource. It will answer many questions, and again, let people know what they can do about it!

Dr. Buttar Reveals Declassified Government Report Related to 5G Dangers

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dr. Rashid Butter discusses a declassified report on millimetre wave technology and the effects it has on human health. These are the same waves used in 5G technology.

  • Reflect On:

    If we already know these waves cause harm to human health, why do we use them in airport scanners? Why are we about to roll out an entire wireless network based on these technologies?

People often say 5G hasn’t been tested, and to some extent that is true. But given 5G uses millimetre wave technology and that technology has been studied for quite some time, it has obviously been tested by those who have worked on them. So why hasn’t this information been widely released? Why are we not looking at the available data on millimetre wave technology as it relates to 5G?

Recently we came across 7 Russian studies that were summarized in a report declassified through the CIA. These studies were declassified in 2012 and marked “For Goverment Use Only.” From what you can gather very quickly in this report, the conclusions should shut down 5G rollout instantly. At least until someone can show, beyond any reasonable doubt, that this technology is safe.

Let’s have a quick look at how this report was concluded:

“Thus the conducted investigations indicate high biological activity and an unfavourable influence of millimeter radiowaves on the organism. The expression of the biological reactions increased with an increase of the period of iridation and depended on individual characteristics of the organism.”

What this translates to in plain English is, millimetre-wave frequencies do affect the human body negatively, and the longer the exposure, the more damage that occurs. Since 5G uses millimetre waves and is set to push a constant barrage of frequency on humans anywhere they go, this would mean sustained wave exposure, and thus inevitable biological damage.

Incredibly, these are the same wave technologies used in airport fully body scanners that we have been raising awareness about for years. It’s important to note, you CAN opt out of going through those scanners.

Dr. Rashid Buttar has given an incredible interview where he goes page by page as to exactly what this declassified CIA research reveals. The report summarizes 7 studies on the effects of millimeter-wave radiation levels between 37-60GHz. These levels are “safe” according to government, but that is NOT what the science says.

As we have said for the last year and a half, now is a potent time to understand the dangers of 5G and work to stop its rollout. This interview is a must listen. Click here to watch Dr. Rashid Buttar’s interview.


Scroll down the page when you register and you will see Dr. Buttar’s interview.

As we can tell in our world right now, a ton of truth is coming to the surface, the environment to create change is ripe. If we can stay grounded, in our hearts and avoid descending into hate, we can TRULY make a big difference here.
