Oliver Stone Believes US Has Entered An "Orwellian State"

In a recent interview with RT, controversial director Oliver Stone declared many things: The American public is living in a fish bowl, the government is covering it up, and American President Barack Obama is a "wolf in sheeps clothing". Before you jump on the agenda band wagon, let's just clarify he feels that way about all government entities, check out the quote below.

I think under the disguise of sheep’s clothing he has been a wolf. That because of the nightmare of the Bush presidency that preceded him, people forgave him a lot. He was a great hope for change. The color of his skin, the upbringing, the internationalism, the globalism, seemed all evident. And he is an intelligent man. He has taken all the Bush changes he basically put them into the establishment, he has codified them. That is what is sad. So we are going into the second administration that is living outside the law and does not respect the law and foundations of our system and he is a constitutional lawyer, you know. Without the law, it is the law of the jungle.  Nuremburg existed for a reason and there was a reason to have trials, there is a reason for due process – ‘habeas corpus’ as they call it in the United States. 

Stone asserts all this and more in his new series on Showtime called The Untold History of The United States, which is based off the book of the same title by Stone and Peter Kuznick. You can watch the first episode below should you be interested.
