Be warned: the rabbit-hole is deep! Don't swallow the red pill unless you want your eyes to be opened!

These videos didn't quite make the Top 10, but they're informative enough that we had to mention them. For anybody who really wants to "tumble down the rabbit hole", there's a ton of valuable information here.
(In no particular order:)

Confessions of an Economic Hitman (102 min): John Perkins was one of the men working behind the scenes to expand a global empire primarily through economic blackmail where they seduced third world leaders into taking out enormous loans that were impossible to repay so we could then U.S. corporations could swoop in and acquire control of their natural resources.
I know this is a lot of information to absorb! If you watched these videos with an open mind, you probably feel like Alice, tumbling down the rabbit hole. I leave you with one last video, providing a more "elementary" perspective. It's cute, but the point is that the basic lessons behind all this information really aren't that hard to grasp:
Inflation is not hard to understand.
Inflation is the root of our economic woes.
Inflation is the primary difference between the two schools of economics, Austrian and Keynesian.
Inflation is created by the Federal Reserve, a Keynesian approach to economic management.
Inflation is a hidden tax, on us and on future generations.
Inflation is our cage, and the Federal Reserve is our jailor. We need to abolish the Federal Reserve and all central banks, and we need a balanced budget -- yesterday. But we aren't going to get those things with the people currently in charge, so we need to get new people involved in politics. The good news is that the average human lifespan is still pretty short, so new generations come along all the time. The future is literally ours, and what it looks like depends entirely upon the actions we take today.
