Oliver Stone to RT: "US has become an Orwellian state"

By Kyle McDermott

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. ­Both argue that Obama is a wolf in sheep's clothing and that people have forgiven him a lot because of the "nightmare of the Bush presidency that preceded him." "He has taken all the Bush changes he basically put them into the establishment, he has codified them," Stone told RT. "It is an Orwellian state. It might not be oppressive on the surface, but there is no place to hide. Some part of you is going to end up in the database somewhere." According to Kuznick, American citizens live in a fish tank where their government intercepts more than 1.7 billion messages a day. "That is email, telephone calls, other forms of communication."

Kyle McDermott is a commentator and essayist. He advocates self-determination, freedom, and independence for all of the Peoples of mankind and respect and empathy for all living things, and he therefore believes in the cosmic Brotherhood of Sentience. In his writings, he has attempted to offer a new worldview, for the reasoned consideration of anyone willing to consider his hypothesis with an open mind, namely: the "Big Bang" is most rationally perceived as an autotelic cosmic seed, and the universe is best understood as a living organism.
