The surveillance state was already substantially in place before 9/11. The "War on Drugs" shaded into the "War on Terror" surprisingly easily. We'd still have the constitutional privacy issues, although without 9/11 there might not have been an Edward Snowden to bring the extent of the surveillance to our attention.

I'm torn. On the one hand, it's a very catch song. On the other, it's about how great it is to ride out and lynch people, so...

+SPACEMARINEstudios Amen. The racist -slavery view of the South is just propaganda. Yeah, that stuff happened, but it happened all over the world. Guess where slavery started, in Africa. Guess where it ended, in South Africa.

Great, the men's rights activists have arrived. They're the pimples on the collective ass of the Internet.

As the saying goes, "war is the health of the state."

Definitely one of the best guides I've seen. I thought I had a good handle on the game, but I still learned a lot from your video. Keep up the good work!

Best cover of this song I've heard. Kinda brings to mind the Roman legends of the dioscuri, as in two brothers who appear from nowhere to save people.

This is clearly a European series. There's none of the pandering to religious sensibilities you'd see in a script written by/for us Americans. It's refreshing!

+TheCheungDan You made me laugh, thank you. 

A more precise way of saying it would be: "In conclusion: I can't differentiate religious statements from scientific statements".

It is OK. You were trained that way.
You were trained in schools from the day you could walk. They trained you in a very specific way in order to make you obedient. Contradicting a simple video is something you can't even do.

Copy the list of statements in a peace of paper, then ask your self, which of these statements could be produced by making experiments.

From those expressions you have to ask yourself. What was the question that produced this answer. You will find that the questions has on them another statements. 
Make a list of those statements and check how many of those statements could be reached with a repeated experiment. 

Those are scientific statements. All the others were religious statements. 

I already did that exercise, not many of the initial phrases were scientific statements, they were religious statements. But not the good ones, the bad ones, the ones that are wrong. Yes, there are religious statements that are correct and also there are scientific statements that are wrong. 

All this is too complicated for you.

In response to the comments below, I have this to say: Some men on the Internet criticize feminists in part, I think, because they personally feel that they are being accused of being misogynists. They find it difficult to separate a critique of society as a whole from an attack on themselves as individuals. There's also a lot of negative associations built up around the word feminism. It's come to mean something very different in the minds of people who perhaps don't know any better. I think if you asked most "men's rights activists" outright if they supported gender equality, they'd say "yes," and mean it.

Saw this when I was 10, loved it then, love it now. SG-1 was fine, but the original movie was more intelligently written overall.

Not being Scottish, I'm not well situated to judge their mythology, and I'll admit to being woefully ignorant about "Bonny Prince Charlie". At the same time, it can't be healthy to pine for a long-dead royalist cause like that of the Stuarts.  Any freedom loving Scotsman with an iota of republican spirit should be repelled by these lyrics.

+James Stouffer Most people who study history agree that in the long run, the fall of the Jacobites at Culloden Fields was actually good for the Scottish Highlands, since the life under the Highland Lairds was not good for the people of the Highlands, and that although the path was brutal, Scotland is culturally in a much better place now than they would have ended up under the reigns of the Stuarts. However, the Culloden Massacre has been idolized in Scottish song and story as the epitome of Scottish valour, as they fought against the English invaders.

For me, I enjoy the songs for the tunes and the flow of the words. It's the same reason why I like Irish rebel songs even though I am very much anti IRA.

This is my 2 cents, and I'll admit I may be wrong on my points, since it has been a while since I have studied the history behind this myself.

Such a satisfying ending. Thanks so much for sharing! I happily pay for Netflix, but they don't (yet) have the dubbed version, which I prefer.
