People You May Know
Directed by Katharina Viken
People You May Know follows Charles Kriel, specialist advisor to UK Parliament on disinformation, when he discovers Cambridge Analytica collaborating with a software company creating a microtargeting platform for US churches, targeting vulnerable people - the poor, the grieving, the addicted - to radicalize them for far-right politics. With US 2020 elections coming, Kriel gathers a team of whistleblowers and journalists, and journeys across America with his young family, where he discovers a powerful organization with ties to the heart of the White House. The man who commissioned CA is a member of the most powerful secret political organisation in the United States, with an agenda to rewrite the Constitution according to Christian law. Going undercover, he risks everything to gain access where no outsider has ever set foot.

Register to vote those who will vote your way, and dissuade others from voting. Done by connecting simple church data bases of name and address, with Cambridge Center modeled data collections. Follow the money, Council for National Policy; clandestine - Koch Brothers - VP Pence led; now running the show. Overall push to privatize social support like public schools in order to indoctrinate public at a very young age into Republican ideologies. A+ Whistle Blowers Dream. Informative jumping off point for further self education and investigation.
and the lefts communist agenda is better, i suppose. definitely a battle of good and evil.
This explains a lot. The religious right have decided that the U.S. government is due for a revamp. Trump (an "instrument of God") is a tool. The agenda is to win majorities in 33 states, convene a constitutional convention, and literally rewrite the constitution. Make the USA officially a Christian country. This isn't exactly a conspiracy, because it's not a secret. And it's not illegal. Their tactics (data collection, manipulation and deceit) are filthy, but apparently not against existing law.
piqued my curiosity, but didn't tell a coherent enough narrative. i came away wondering, still, what entirely is in it for the people funding the evangelicals and drumming up gop support -- the people behind it with the money aren't doing it for religion, so why *are* they doing it? question remained not well answered. too bad. interesting topic.
Totally scarey and totally believable. Some of the smartest folks I know are devout Christians, should they watch this documentary I think it could break their faith.
