Aaron Russo's shocking interview about the power and influence of the Rockerfeller family and their 'associates' worldwide. It is directly relevant today, even to current legislation, even here in the UK, perhaps. Russo was producer of the film, 'Trading Places', starring Dan Ackroyd and Eddie Murphy and the excellent Denholm Elliot about a couple of elite bankers who make a bet on whether they can make Eddie Murphy, a black beggar, rich, and do the job of Dan Ackroyd in financial speculation, and make Dan Ackroyd poor and turn to crime, the debate between the two bankers being based on whether success is 'nature or nurture'. The film happens to be my favourite movie of all time. Ironically, the World Trade Centre, at the heart of which is the subject of this interview, is in the background of the opening scene of this final clip in the movie.
Aaron Russo died of bladder cancer at the age of 65, shortly after he made the movie, 'America: Freedom to Fascism' and here is part one below.
'America: Freedom to Fascism' is a 2006 film by Aaron Russo, which alleges among a variety of claims that income tax is constitutionally illegal.
According to Wikipedia,
'This documentary covers many subjects, including: the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the income tax, Federal Reserve System, national ID cards (REAL ID Act), human-implanted RFID tags (Spychips), Diebold electronic voting machines, globalization, Big Brother, taser weapons abuse, and the alleged use of terrorism by government as a means to diminish the citizens' rights. The film's claims about the illegality of the income tax in the United States have been critiqued as factually incorrect by some reviewers. The film has, however, developed a strong following.'
The 11-part documentary looks very interesting indeed. If he had lived he would have been a very dangerous man to the US Government and to those who influence it. I am sure plenty of people in positions of power are relieved that he is no longer with us. May he rest in peace.
