Americans Need to Wake Up

Film: There's No Place Like Utopia

By Ken Timmerman | October 24, 2014

Joel Gilbert dissects what many Americans think of as a benign desire for a perfectible universe, and in doing so exposes the dark totalitarian underside of utopian dreams. With insightful interviews overlaying a comic narrative, Gilbert brings to life our current day Wizards of Oz and their outsized plans to reorganize society and control behavior, while shrinking the freedoms we still – foolishly – take for granted. Americans need to wake up before they find themselves living in a very different country from the one they were born to.
