Hopefully, Youtube will not attempt to suppress this upload like they did with my upload of Scott Nobles HUMAN RESOURCES Social Engineering In The 20th Century film a few years ago.

Just in case, you can view the film in it’s entirety here:…

Watch this presentation now while you can in case YT loses it’s mind again and decides to unfairly censor this one also.

In Theology, metanoia is used to refer to the change of
mind which is brought about in repentance.

The prefix “meta-” carries with it other variants that are
consistent with the Eastern Greek philosophical mindset,
“Meta-” is additionally used to imply “beyond” and “outside of.”
E.g., metamorphosis as a beyond-change; and, metaphysics as
outside the limits of physics.

The Greek term for repentance, metanoia, denotes a change of mind, a reorientation, a fundamental transformation of outlook, of an individual’s vision of the world and of her/himself, and a new way of loving others and the Universe. In the words of a second-century text, The Shepherd of Hermas, it implies “great understanding,” discernment.

In Carl Jung’s psychology, metanoia indicates a spontaneous attempt of the psyche to heal itself of unbearable conflict by melting down and then being reborn in a more adaptive form.

PLUTOCRACY Political Repression In The U.S.A. (2015) HQ FULL

Plutocracy is the first documentary to comprehensively examine early American history through the lens of class. A multi-part series by filmmaker Scott Noble, Part I focuses on the the ways in which the American people have historically been divided on the basis of race, ethnicity, sex and skill level.

Plutocracy: Divide et Impera (Divide and Rule) includes sections on Mother Jones, the American Constitution; the Civil War draft riots; Reconstruction; Industrialization; the evolution of the police; the robber barons; early American labor unions; and major mid-to-late 19th Century labor events including the uprising of 1877, the Haymarket Affair, the Homestead strike and the New Orleans General Strike. The introduction examines the West Virginian coal wars of the early 20th Century, culminating in the Battle of Blair Mountain.

Part II (‘Solidarity Forever’) will cover the late 19th Century to the early twenties.

The filmmaker is currently seeking donations to complete the project. If you’d like to help, you can donate to their Patreon account.
