    I wish the John Pilger could stay on message; the first third had very little to do with China.

    A lot to do with long-term effects of nuclear testing, which just didn't seem relevant to the main topic of the film.

    The interview with the Chinese Foreign Relations Professor was:
    (a) surprisingly candid, and
    (b) would make clear sense for a layperson audience

    John Pilger could have spent more time on that map of American military bases all over the world. It is a powerful visualization.

    Regarding a different video;

    I watched this documentary (China Triumph and Turmoil by Niall Ferguson) and found the ending really interesting. Seems to be resembling what we are seeing now. This was made in early 2012.

    This video is now totally off if you look at what has happened in HK. A documentary? More like a propaganda.

    Propaganda? everything is propaganda. But how is it totally off?

    Economy is slowing - tick
    Unrest movements increasing - tick
    Resurgent nationalism - tick
    blaming the west for its issues - tick
    becoming more aggressive - tick
    overseas expansion - tick

    Btw i understand the same happened to America, but that has already been talked about all over.

    My apologies, I was referring to the first video. But admittedly I didn’t watch it fully, just fast forward and watching parts of it.

    On the film maker.

    Ok sorry i thought you were talking about the video I linked. I too haven't watched the video the OP linked. I was just looking for a relevant thread to post my link instead of creating a new thread.
