Blind Spot--Documentary movie review: part 2 of 2


Hundreds of responses poured into my computer concerning the movie documentary, BLIND SPOT, www.blindspotdoc.com.  It’s amazing how millions can look at a steam locomotive bearing down on them and continue walking on the tracks away from the train so they won’t see it when it runs over them.


And so we find ourselves in our own Blind Spot as a civilization.  Since it’s not happening to us right now, such as Hurricane Katrina hasn’t reached shore yet, so we continue building sand castles on the beach. 


Again, I urge you to place this DVD video into the hands of our president, governors, senators and House reps of Congress.


In the most important, brilliant and electrifying documentary film of the 21st century, “Blind Spot” by Adolfo Doring, Randal Wallace and David Gill--they conduct interviews with men and women studying human impact on this planet.


“Most assumptions we make to run our society today are false,” said Dr. Bradford, scientist. “The assumption is that we can keep growing. That is irresponsible! But our culture reinforces that we can get more.”


Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature, said, “It’s easier to lie to people when they welcome the lie of unending cheap oil.”


For me, a world traveler who has seen what’s headed our way, I find it particularly interesting that our whole society continues on a suicidal path when they see dramatic symptoms occurring worldwide in Africa, Asia and South America.  The amount of denial at the highest and lowest levels of American society remains breathtaking.


Dr. William Catton said, “We are creating an environment on earth in which we cannot exist. The question remains will we change our population or will nature do it for us.  Do we want to preserve our planet that we inherited? If so, we must change our use of energy.”
