Robert Newman's History Of Oil Activism  Humor & Fun  Media  War and Peace

This is absolutely, bar none, the most brilliant piece of political video ever. Also the funniest. No contest.

Learn the real cause of the First World War. Learn what Salvador Dali's checkbook has to do with the Axis of Evil and the current invasion of Iraq. And many more things besides.

It's genius.

"Brilliant" is the best way to describe this video. What I enjoyed most was his closing: a call for activism. Not activism to change policy, laws or the minds of leaders, but a Just Do It kind of activism.

If we set out to change the minds of our leaders – greedy leaders with big egos - it's going to take more time than we have.
