AMERIKA - 80's Miniseries ABC Television

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amerika_%28TV_miniseries%29

Following a Soviet EMP attack on the US,  the US Govt capitulates to a Soviet/UN alliance who now administer control by 'Peacekeeping forces'.

The United States is split into multiple "administrative areas", travel and communications between the various zones is heavily restricted, the youth are indoctrinated in the new 'ideology' and the US itself is to be reformed into new 'client states'.

The parallells with what is evidently coming will not be lost on those who have not seen this 1980's miniseries before.

Although, as humanity always seems to discover, reality is always far darker than fiction...

Amerika first aired in February 1987, and is very much a product of it's time.

However, it should be remembered that this 14 & 1/4 hour miniseries, created such a controversy, that ABC television produced an informercial to promote and defend the series shortly before it had even been broadcast.

ABC News then followed up by devoting an entire Viewpoint special to it - Amerika: Major Omission

Notable, for Ted Turner (CNN) declaring Amerika  to be "irresponsible television" .

Pretty damn cool video series, I made it through the first 4 parts(so far) with an occasional fast forwarding.

Around the time of this series, the CIA was getting its final control of ABC.

Perhaps this presentation was a whistle-blowers attempt at exposing the world as we knew it.

Zdravtsvuitye tovarisch, kak dela? ;)

Look what happens when any modern TV show promoting a constitutional (i.e Jericho) or libertarian (i.e Firefly) philosophy is broadcast.  They are cancelled, even if they pick up a large following in syndication.

The fight between the power and money obsessed high cabal and humanity is global. We are living through times of deception, sugar coated with cue words of freedom and democracy and other bunch of lies. And it's not only The United States of America. However, the U.S. has a leading role in the global development leading to liberation of humanity. We are living trough exceptional times, not because there is so much suffering, but because people are beginning to see trough the smoke screen. Greetings to the high cabal, you will be decimated!
