I Am Spartacus | Dave Hodges – The Common Sense Show
Spartacus is a 1960 American historical drama movie directed by Stanley Kubrick and it is based upon the novel by the same name written by Howard Fasti am spartacus 1
There was a phrase in the movie, “Spartacus” starring Kirk Douglas as Spartacus, which has captured movie goers imagination and is now part of the American lexicon.
Spartacus was a lowly slave who had an indomitable spirit which yearned for freedom. He led a successful rebellion by raising an army of slaves to oppose the Roman tyranny. After the army of former Roman slaves, led by Spartacus, was finally defeated in a decisive battle by several legions of the Roman Empire, a Roman general stands before the captured surviving members of the slave army and demands that they turn over Spartacus. If the slaves identify Spartacus, they live. If the slaves keep Spartacus identity secret, they will be executed. Upon hearing the Roman General’s threat, and trying to prevent his friends and followers from being executed, Spartacus stands up and proclaims “I am Spartacus.” However, the loyalty of his friends and followers is so overwhelming, that each of them comes forward in succession, shouting “I am Spartacus!” The proclamation that “I am Spartacus spreads until the shouts grow to thousands of former slaves each proclaiming “I am Spartacus!”
Confused and unable to identify the real Spartacus, but impressed by the loyalty he inspires in his army, the Roman general crucifies all Spartacus’ followers in a miles-long display alongside the Appian Way leading back to Rome. Hence, the phrase “I am Spartacus!” is often used to proclaim solidarity with a group of oppressed individuals. The story that follows cries out for millions of people to proclaim “I am Spartacus.”
Buy From Global Corporations and Support Slave Labor
Under Title 19, section 1307 of the U.S. Code, it is illegal to import products made by slave labor. However, our criminal government continues to ignore its own rules by acquiescing to the slave owning class of the global corporations and continues to accept imported slave goods.
Julie Keith was stunned when she opened her Kmart Halloween decoration and found a letter, folded into eights which was hidden between two Styrofoam tombstones.
i am spartacus chinese slave labor4Like Spartacus, the Chinese author of this letter has an indomitable spirit which yearns for freedom. In her letter, this Chinese freedom lover proclaims to have come Unit 8, Department 2 of the Masanijia Labor Camp in Shnyang, China. The letter was mostly written mostly in English. One very disturbing quote in the letter read “Sir, if you occasionally buy this product, please kindly resend this letter to the World Human Right Organization. Thousands people here who are under the persecution of the Chinese Communist Party Government will thank you and remember you forever.” Further, the author of the letter described 15 hour work days, no days off and payment of only a $1.61 per month. It also described the 1-3 year average for labor sentence without any due process and spiritual groups are banned.
“They hate our freedoms”
“They hate our freedoms”
Well, some people will say that’s China, not the United States. We are told everyday that the imaginary boogey man, terrorists, hates us because of our freedoms and we are lucky to be Americans with all of our freedoms………….
