A vlauable lesson

By Dawn Rider

Comments about PBS The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers DVD:

This is a film that shows a smart man doing what he believes to be the morally correct thing, despite the risk he poses to himself. On a higher level it displays how deeply flawed American foreign policy has been since the end of the Second World War and that nothing has been learnt from these mistakes of history. What happened then was sanctioned corruption and the hole has only become deeper. Watch the film and challenge your understanding of the US government and administration.

Everyone should see this video

Comments about PBS The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers DVD:

Daniel Ellsberg is a hero. The release of the Pentagon papers not only helped expose Nixon's abuse in office, but ultimately helped end the war in Vietnam. It would be great if someone with his courage blew the whisle on those who used PNAC as a roadmap to what has become our disasterous foreign policy in the Middle East. A policy, which was designed long before 9/11 ever happened.

A lesson beyond the story

By Ollie

from Rochester NY

Comments about PBS The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers DVD:

The story is about a specific series of events revolving around the United States government and the unfolding of events in the war in Vietnam.

The lasting lesson is about the importance of "speaking truth to power." It is about the risks associated with an individual or small group of individuals pursuing something other than being a careerist. It is about placing moral principle above personal career success. It is about not allowing the sharp edges of your conscience be dulled by your pursuit to "fit in." It is about having the strength of moral character to say, "The Emperor has no clothes."

I recommend watching it more than once.

Live long and prosper.

This is one to pass to friends...

Comments about PBS The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers DVD:

I saw this movie at an international film festival alone and was intrigued. I was a bit young for the Vietnam War era but was travelling to Vietnam that year. Since I have watched it with my husband and now purchased it for a gift for a friend. Excellent and gripping true story of a struggle for integrity and a not-that-long-ago current-events story. Dynamic!
