Splinters in the Mind: Documentaries to Open Your Eyes

"You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life--that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.

You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.

There's nothing I can say that will explain it for you... See for yourself."
