Since we were celebrating the Independence Day weekend, my Beloved and our grandson and I decided to head to the movies last Saturday. We chose to see Dinesh D’Souza‘s current production, America: Imagine The World Without Her.
The theme of this film is centered around the question: what kind of world would this be if America had never existed? For me, this was an interesting proposition. D’Souza developed this theme by interviewing a handful of today’s major critics, individuals who are vocal about our country’s failures and perceived arrogance. With historical re-enactments interspersed, D’Souza builds a foundation for his critics’ condemnation of the United States.
He identifies five groups perceived to have been “victimized” and trampled over by an uncaring and destructive US:
- The American Indians
- The Mexican people
- Black Americans (many of whom were slaves)
- The American people
- The World at large
