Directed by Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern in 2008 based on the 2007 non-fiction political book by Naomi Wolfe, this 73-minute documentary delves into American democracy in danger and under threat.
The film takes a historical look at trends in once-functioning democracies from modern history, and then investigates parallels between the current situation and the rise of dictators and fascism in once-free societies.
It uncovers a number of deeply unsettling similarities from the use of paramilitary forces and secret prisons to the targeted suspension of the rule of law.
And eventually the film ureges regular cirizens to take back the legacy of freedom and justice.

Naomi has a habit of overstating things though her warnings about the changes in U.S. law which undermine the constitution are absolutely valid. If you see the new movie, Vice, about Dick Cheney, you'll see examples in action of almost every one of the points she makes in her speech. These include suppression of the media, offshore prisons and the use of enhanced rendition (torture) and infiltrating and arresting groups who were protesting the U.S. government. These days we are all focused on that Orange thing in the oval office but the damage started before he arrived.
