Oliver Stone: ‘US Has Become An Orwellian State’

Americans are living in an Orwellian state argue Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone and historian Peter Kuznick, as they sit down with RT* to discuss US foreign policy and the Obama administration’s disregard for the rule of law.

Both argue that Obama is a wolf in sheep’s clothing and that people have forgiven him a lot because of the “nightmare of the Bush presidency that preceded him.”

“He has taken all the Bush changes he basically put them into the establishment, he has codified them,” Stone told RT. “It is an Orwellian state. It might not be oppressive on the surface, but there is no place to hide. Some part of you is going to end up in the database somewhere.”


According to Kuznick, American citizens live in a fish tank where their government intercepts more than 1.7 billion messages a day. “That is email, telephone calls, other forms of communication.”

RT’s Abby Martin in the program Breaking the Set discusses the Showtime film series and book titled The Untold History of the United States co-authored by Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick.

    It’s truly amazing that the Hollywood millionaires are all for communism – lets start redistributing wealth from the bank accounts of the actors? and actresses? as well as the super rich demoncrats past and present (that would be you Al Gore and Bill Clinton) brin them all back to working class level.

  • I’m glad to hear that Oliver Stone understands America’s in trouble!

  • Carl Olson

    Welcome to Oliver Stone who has now seen the light. Hope his series will show the abject disregard for the rule of law and the unconstitutional spying on all Americans. Glad to have him as a courageous convert.

  • But we still need a military!

  • Strange he’s attacking his son’s muslim brother…

    OMG! When I agree with 95% of what Oliver Stone says, we have truly gone down the rabbit hole. Tea with the Mad Hatter, coming up.
