The Lives of Others

I just watched the 2006 German film, Das Leben der Anderen (The Lives of Others in English) about the dreadful practices of the Stasi, the Secret Police in East Germany.  It's an incredibly powerful film and should be watched by everyone living in a democracy.  Furthermore, rather than brainwashing school children with Al Gore's propaganda, this film should be mandatory viewing for every high school student, who are so easily fooled by the allure of Socialism (in no small part due to the extreme socialist leanings of way too many teachers and their unions).

If you're a Canadian and think that the State can never overreach its authority then you clearly haven't been following the exploits of the assorted "Human Rights" Commissions across our nation.  Here's one example of creepiness.  Follow Ezra Levant's blog and you'll read about hundreds more.

Here's the trailer for the film:
