The Grouch: I'm nowhere near as cynical as the creator of the this video, but I think it presents an interesting, though nightmarish, Orwellian point of view of human history and modern society. I don't think our overlords in the government exert the kind of control this video implies, though they are working hard to expand their reach. I still think freedom has the upper hand, and humans aren't livestock working for the benefits of their masters, but are working for the betterment of themselves and their families.
