Aaron Russo’s “America: Freedom To Fascism”
Aaron Russo (February 14, 1943 – August 24, 2007) was an American entertainment businessman, film producer and director, and political activist. He was best known for producing such movies as Trading Places, Wise Guys, and The Rose. Later in life, he created various Libertarian-leaning political documentaries including Mad as Hell and America: Freedom to Fascism. After a six-year battle with bladder cancer, Russo died on August 24, 2007.
Controversial and throught-provoking are two words that describe one of the most talked-about documentaries of 2006.
Determined to find the law that requries American citizens to pay income tax, producer Aaron Russo (Bette Midler’s The Rose, Trading Places) set out on a journey to find the evidence.
Neither left nor right-wing, this startling examination of government exposes the systematic erosion of civil liberties in America since 1913 when the Federal Reserve system was fraudulently created.
Through interviews with two U.S. Congressmen, former IRS Commissioner and former IRS and FBI agents, tax attorneys and authors, Russo connects the dots between money creation, federal income tax, and the national identity card, which becomes law in May 2008 and will use Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology.
Could this be a precursor to an impending police state in America? Watch the film and make your own conclusions.
