    Oliver Stone to RT: ‘US has become an Orwellian state’

    Americans are living in an Orwellian state argue Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone and historian Peter Kuznick, as they sit down with RT to discuss US foreign policy and the Obama administration’s disregard for the rule of law.

    Oliver Stone to RT:

    Wow!....Obama supporter, and big libers in hollywood, calling Obama "Orwellian".... Could the bloom on the rose be smelling like skunk even before the inauguration? Say it ain't so....
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Ha, yeah, I see what you mean. Well, I've been saying this for years about Obama. He's almost as bad a war criminal as Bush. Maybe Obama can turn things around in his second term now that he doesn't have to worry about getting re-elected. Or maybe civil liberties are just gone for good.

    The problem is, though, that Republican politicians aren't interested in repealing the Orwellian state either.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Say what you will for Ron Paul, at least he is a civil libertarian and is willing to end the Presidential drone strike kill list as well as our secret court system. And he's one of the few politicians willing to do so.

    Oliver Stone isn't and never has been a "typical Hollywood liberal", whatever that means. He's basically a Kucinich Democrat.
    I dip my forefinger in the watery blood of your impotent mad-redeemer (your Divine Democrat — your Hebrew Madman) and write over his thorn-torn brow, “The true prince of Evil — the king of the Slaves!”
    - Ragnar Redbeard, Might Is Right, 1890
