  8. It’s a shame fewer than a million people have watched this video. If more people knew and understood this, we’d have a better chance of learning the truth about what’s happening in the world, instead of clogging up social media with opinions and misguided bias. Just think about how different the past seven years could have been if everyone had watched this video in 2014 and what life might look like right now.
