    To the critics of this piece,the purpose was not to be political and have the viewer pick a side as is often done on the MSM but rather to provoke independent thought with few pertinent points. If you want to be told what to think watch Fox News or MSNBC.

    This was staggeringly worthless. I was looking out for the indirect target of the propaganda - would they be smearing Bolsonaro or Trump? (Castro and Maduro have been around for ages and don't particularly elicit CFR propaganda right now). But it was so ineffective that there's nothing to rebut.

    The RVTV library is already extensive and well worth mining for pertinent new presentations. In this case, Mr. Smith, or someone else, could use this as a starting point to make further comments on history and on the present. This would work also in a lot of the financial presentations that could be updated to show where it worked and where it did not work. Good luck. DLS

      I agree but connecting the dots to today would be a good idea. Also I miss daily 30min pieces on different subjects. 7min pieces too short to add value to my process

      georgy g. - I agree. The prior videos should be the starting point. I like the 30 minute timeframe also. DLS

    Lots of words but no new ideas
