This film “1971” documents the 1971 break-in at an FBI office in Philadelphia. The perpetrators were never found, but recently a number of them have come forward to tell their story.
It was significant because the documents stolen – every document in that small FBI office – revealed an FBI disruptive program called COINTELPRO. Part of these activities including the horrific practice of Gaslighting.
This break-in was important for many reasons, one of which is it gives us a segue into the thinking behind the scenes. Do not think it will have changed. Rather, think about what these goons are up to with the technology that now exists more than 40 years later. The Ed Snowden revelations are just the tip of the iceberg.
The discussion at the end between the author, the film maker and Laura Poitras, who helped break the Snowden story and made the documentary about it called Citizen Four, is also worth watching.
