Documentaries provide the fiber for history.
Since history has no properly scientific value, its only purpose is educative. And if historians neglect to educate the public, if they fail to interest it intelligently in the past, then all their historical learning is valueless except in so far as it educates themselves.” G. M. Trevelyan.
“To each eye, perhaps, the outlines of a great civilization present a different picture. In the wide ocean upon which we venture, the possible ways and directions are many; and the same studies which have served for my work might easily, in other hands, not only receive a wholly different treatment and application, but lead to essentially different conclusions.” Jacob Burckhardt
“History is the witness that testifies to the passing of time; it illuminates reality, vitalizes memory, provides guidance in daily life, and brings us tidings of antiquity.” Cicero
“Every day create your history Every path you take you’re leaving your legacy Every soldier dies in his glory Every legend tells of conquest and liberty Every day create your history Every page you turn you’re writing your legacy Every hero dreams of chivalry Every child should sing together in harmony “ Michael Jackson
History is all that has happened. It is not just about Paul Revere, or Abraham Lincoln, or even Mahatma Gandhi. It is about you and me. It is about all that we do here, and more importantly, history is what will be told to generations to follow. Michael Jackson expressed the value of history better than anyone I have read. History is about conquest and liberty, and it goes into the records for many, many years to come. A documentary is used for education, and can become important history. It can be written in text books for students to study long after we are gone. Murray and his minions are working hard to create history from a string of lies. They just need someone to believe them. We will not let that happen, as their documentary is unacceptable.
The very first factor that must be established is, without documentation, there can be no documentary. Many of us who observed the trial saw that the defense was unable to tender any documentation, whatsoever. Conrad Murray, the doctor, was not even competent enough to disclose any medical documents (records). He never documented any of his practices with Michael. I’m sure you will agree that it was ludicrous. Documentary establish a comprehensive set of nonfictional information proposed to document particular attributes of authenticity, principally for the functions of training or preserving a historical record.
Conrad Murray did not want anything documented. He did not even want the propofol bottles to be collected, because he knew they would have been documentation. Mr. Murray only had two pieces of documentation, 1) a recording of Michael, whom he had drugged. Clearly, Michael wanted to live. He was thinking of his future and the future of a million children. 2) A statement he gave to police two days after the death of Michael. We will talk about that statement, as it was all a lie. I don’t want anyone to forget what the truth is. Murray said he was gone two minutes. Undoubtedly, Murray did not realize that his phone calls would be documented for length, time, and number dialed. Maybe he just didn’t care. Let’s talk some about what a documentary is and is not.
Documentaries are one of the many genres of film. The intent and purpose behind the creation of Documentaries is to address a particular aspect of reality. A documentary is designed to cause an educational experience. What you believe can change your life…and the lives of those around you. Unmistakably, documentaries are created to make you believe in the legitimacy of the matter being presented. It is expected to offer sufficient evidence, and to convince you that what you are viewing or reading is acceptable, believable, and may be used as a reference and/or platform for future knowledge. It is meant to reach you intellectually, not emotionally. Documentaries generally presents a study, which is the source of learning for the viewer. Documentaries can serve the purpose of educating the viewer, and bringing about a change in the mind as well as the attitude of an entire group of people.
1)Dr Steven Shafer told jurors the lack of proper medical equipment and the absence of notes and medical records by Murray, along with a breakdown of the patient-doctor relationship were factors in the death. Documentation by personal notes was not provided by Mr. Murray. It would not have been a difficult task to write a few notes about the result of his treatment of Michael. Albeit Mr. Murray is discussing the treatment he gave Michael, and the results…there are no documents. Thus, it does not belong in a documentary.
2) He (Murray) insisted Jackson was not on an infusion that would stop his breathing and, “I was not supposed to be monitoring him at that time because there was no need for monitoring.” Technological documentation by information from equipment was not provided. It is unthinkable that AEG would not have given Mr. Murray anything he needed to take care of Michael. His contract was with AEG… not Michael. He is (was) a cardiologist. AEG would have gotten a heart monitor for him. The information from an EKG would have provided documentation.
There was no reason for him not to request that equipment. Michael had something happen to his lung. AEG would have gotten him the equipment he needed for breathing. He cannot talk legitimately about any medical matter regarding Michael Joseph Jackson. His words are undocumented and have no validity. There is no documentation, so it does not belong in a documentary.
3) NBC’s Today Interviewer Savannah Guthrie asked: “Do you think he lied to you?” “Definitely,” Murray said. “About what?” she asked. “Certainly he was deceptive by not showing me his whole medical history, doctors he was seeing, treatments that he might have been receiving.” Murray answered.” So, here we see that Mr. Murray recognizes of the value of documentation. He is actually saying that he could do little because Michael did not give him any documentation. Did he ask? Can he prove he tried to get Michael’s medical history, i.e. documents? No he cannot. Therefore it does not belong in a documentary, because there is no documentation.
Certainly, the list goes on, but you get the idea. You must have documents to make a documentary. So, let’s discuss now what a fake documentary is. The word mockumentary is not slang. It is an actual word used to describe fraudulent documentaries. It is a “mock” documentary, in other words. A mockumentary is a type of film or television show in which fictitious events are presented in documentary format. These productions are often used to analyze or comment on current events and issues by using a fictitious setting, or to parody the documentary form itself. They may be either comedic or dramatic in form, although comedic mockumentaries are more common. A dramatic mockumentary is sometimes referred to as docu-fiction.
Mocumentaries are often presented as historical documentaries, with b roll and talking heads discussing past events, or following people as they go through various events. Though the precise origins of the genre are not known, examples emerged during the 1950s, when archival film footage became relatively easy to locate. A very early example was a short piece on the “Swiss Spaghetti Harvest” that appeared as an April fools’ joke on the British television program Panorama in 1957. Mockumentaries are often partly or wholly improvised, as an unscripted style of acting helps to maintain the pretense of reality. Wipedia
Conrad Murray Tries to Kill Michael Jackson Again in “Documentary”:
“So MSNBC on Friday night broadcast a really pathetic, sort of disgracefully one sided documentary about Michael Jackson’s murderer, Dr. Conrad Murray. Obviously “Michael Jackson and the Doctor” was filmed with the hope that Murray would be acquitted. They were wrong. Creepy “journalist” Gerald Posner, who was bounced from Tina Brown’s Daily Beast after it was discovered he was guilty of plagiarism, seems to be behind the whole thing. He not only has a credit but appears on camera with Murray riding home from court. That should tell you everything: stay away from this one hour.”

The reason the documentary was one sided and unfitting is because it is really a mockumentary. Consider the caliber of those who are seeking to create such immense lies. As we see, the journalist was also a liar. In fact, his description sounds very much like Bashirs. The purpose of mockumentaries is not difficult to grasp. What happens is we move from education to mind control. It sounds drastically unbelievable, but it’s not. Education teaches us to think. Mind control teaches us what to think (with no documents). Usually repetition plays a huge part in what we will define as mind control. This does not take place in some strange setting with aliens and robots; it takes place every time you watch a commercial. In the case of Mr. Murray, this was a commercial. He wants to sell the public on his innocence. I’m not buying it. With the understanding that repetition plays a huge part, we can expect to see more of this. No commercial plays just one time or in just one venue.
Mind control signifies a procedure in which a group or individual “methodically uses counterfeit and unscrupulous techniques to influence others to adapt to the desires of the exploiter(s), frequently to the disadvantage of the person being manipulated”. The expression has been applied to any approach, psychological or otherwise, which can be perceived as sabotaging a person’s intelligence by manipulating their own thinking, behavior, emotions or decision making. Mind control, coercive persuasion, thought control, or thought reform are more often called brainwashing. One of the most popular forms of mind control is known as propaganda.
Propaganda is purposed to sway the posture of a group concerning a certain belief, cause or stance so as to benefit oneself or one’s group.Propaganda, basically delivers information to persuade an audience. It is biased, with proofs carefully chosen, consequently lying by omission. The game is to successfully use deceptive messages to manufacture an emotional as opposed to a rational reaction to the lies being presented. Propaganda has been used for political warfare. Okay, we have talked about what documentaries are, what mockumentaries are, we have talked about mind control and propaganda. Yes, now I am going to tell you that this is the edge of politics. Look at what Wikipedia has to say about what politics is.
“Politics (from Greek πολιτικός, “of, for, or relating to citizens”), is a process by which groups of people make collective decisions. The term is generally applied to the art or science of running governmental or state affairs, including behavior within civil governments, but also applies to institutions, fields, and special interest groups such as the corporate, academic, and religious segments of society. It consists of “social relations involving authority or power” and refers to the regulation of public affairs within a political unit, and to the methods and tactics used to formulate and apply policy.”
Every bit of this is a matter of politics.
We, the MJJ Global Family are a group of people making collective decisions, based upon our purpose…which is the vindication of Michael Jackson. We are a special interest group with authority and power. We are engaged in the regulation of public affairs. One group is actually writing a law about the treatment of those who have died, another group is writing a law so that less people will have to die. There are more to come. This addresses methods and tactics needed to formulate policy. Finally, we are citizens of a new century, and we live in Cyberspace. That is our country. Is this a revolution? Absolutely, it is.
It is essential for us to not let the “documentary” have an influence on those of us who are “not unbreakable”. Otherwise, the result will be that Michael’s name will be slandered forever. There is no reason that should happen. This is a matter of Michael being sold out by those he viewed as close friends, for a measly few bucks. Despite whatever Mr. Murray believes, he will go down in history as the man who murdered Michael Jackson. We will write, publish, broadcast, send messages to the entire world all day every day and we will win. It is now warfare. Only now, we are the media.
We know what a documentary is, and the idea that someone would treat us as though we were complete ignoramuses is unacceptable. So…we are going to fight back. Yes, this is political warfare. It is about history, and what people will say about us when we are gone. This is about truth and honesty. It is about the civil rights, that Michael cared so greatly about. Think about this, the USA strove diligently to create a law called personhood. The law did not pass, but the purpose of the law was to give rights to one at conception. They would be considered a person with civil rights even though they had not yet been born. Getting that law through another way is probably in the works. Likewise, we reserve the right to say a man should not have his dignity taken away, simply because he died. That means, Michael Jackson is still deserving of the rights of a person. Thus, degradation by mockumentary or any other venue will not be approved.
