Quite an impressive documentary featuring the words of Arundhati Roy "on such things as the war on terror, corporate globalization, justice and the growing civil unrest".

Some of the things that ring loudest for me is the way she speaks on anti-nationalism and anti-americanism and then reveals american involvement in so much more than I actually knew of or thought, but in a way that doesn't make it seem like a conspiracy theory, but merely history.

Some of the things she says is that to be anti nationalist does not necessarily mean being against a nation. In the same vein anti-americanism is not to be against many of the good things which define american culture and american ideals. From what I gather, to be anti nationalist is to be against blind following of a nation's regime and as well to be an anti-americanist is to be against the american regime being imposed not only to USA, but to the world as well.

And the latter seems quite very real too.

Somewhere near the end of the documentary she quoted Donald Rumsfeld saying that his mission in the world is to persuade the world that americans must be allowed to continue their way of life. In comment to the quote she said that the american way of life is simply not sustainable because it doesn't realize that there is a world beyond america.

This, among many other things in this documentary, loudly echoes what I have been thinking for quite a while.

I highly recommend watching this documentary!
