Inspiring Premiere Stories

Ann and Phelim organized a cinematic tea party to debut Not Evil Just Wrong in order to set a world record for a simultaneous movie premiere, but the movie is about people, not numbers. That's why we love hearing the great people stories from our premiere partners.

One of the most inspiring we've heard so far occurred during a question-and-answer session after a screening in New Mexico. An elderly woman stopped at the door to speak as she was leaving. The Rio Grande Foundation recounted the tale on its blog, New Mexico Liberty:

With a strong accent, she told the crowd that she grew up in Nazi Germany under Hitler, and she had seen and experienced firsthand what power and corruption can produce. You could have heard a pin drop.

She spoke with great emotion, and cautioned everyone to "be very careful" about where things are headed. Then she said "thank you." Everyone began clapping. Then she left.

It was incredibly moving and a very powerful moment to say the least. I can't begin to describe the look on her face, other than maybe haunting. It was also a fitting punctuation mark on the message of the movie.

The Valley Forge Patriots in Phoenixville, Pa., shared another poignant moment via e-mail. Sixty-three people attended their premiere on a night when two of the area's favorite professional sports teams, the Philadelphia Eagles and Philadelphia Phillies, were playing games. Carol Sexton was there. She sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" after the movie.

America's national anthem is inspiring enough on its own, but it's even more inspiring when put in context. "The woman who sang at the end of the video has been blind since the age of 2, and she is out there fighting," Diane Canney wrote to the Not Evil team. "God Bless America."

This country needs more people like Sexton and the woman who was raised in Nazi Germany fighting to defend the American Dream against environmental alarmism. You are the resistance!

Please tell me about the inspiring moments at your premieres so I can post them to the blog. You can reach me by e-mail: dglover@noteviljustwrong.com.

We Need A Post-Premiere Banner
I just found out about this "Not Evil" movement on Fox News on Oct 18. So I'm late to the game but I'm in now. The question I have is don't we need a post-premiere banner to continue to market the vital documentory? So we need a new banner to say see this important movie!

Also, I have a website that has a lot of element but one of the central ones is my "global warming" page.

I wonder if pandora will live long enough to actually learn that she has been lied to for decades. That tens of thousands of scientists world-wide are discovering- and PROOVING- that agw is false, and that we are experiencing natural climate change. That agw scientist after agw scientist has jumped the IPCC ship. That the Earth has been COOLING for the past 11 years. That the sun has grown quiet, oddly enough EXACTLY in tandem with that cooling.

And so on.

And so forth....

What is incredibly sad is that so many people buy into trends or gimmicks put forth by celebrities or politicians that have no solid merit, or only tell a one sided, slanted view of an issue. Because of the sheepish mentality of so many in the world, they blindly follow in line for a false cause that claims hysteria or the sky is falling scenarios.
These same sheep are lead to believe that humans are bad, and of the worst, are the evil Americans who live a gluten lifestyle and should be ashamed.
I am an American who toils and works hard each and every day. I am educated on subjects such as ecology and the environment and I am part of a generation who has led the world in becoming a front runner on clean emissions, recycling, clean water and enacting legislation that prohibits American business from contributing to the decay of the environment further.
Are we perfect? No. Did we have to learn from our mistakes? Yes. Are countries, which currently are experiencing their own Industrial Revolutions (similar to ours over 100 years ago), taking what we have learned and developed to establish and protect a clean environment for the planet, to use? No.
Thinks about it, why must people be so naive. What is the Global Warming movement really about? If you are an American stop feeling guilty for being part of a country that has at least tried to do what is right and open up your eyes to the true future planned for our planet by those who speak in the name of saving the planet.
This planet has been taking care of itself for a long time, and an insignificant generation such as ours will leave no life threatening imprint on it. Our demise is in our minds and will be at the hands of those who seek to control the world. That is a much more disgraceful death then one that nature could easily turn on us at any moment.

Pandora, what you are missing is that we now comprehend what the science is saying. We also know that the IPCC is politically driven with an agenda. Newer information is better information. CO2 is not driving temperature change, it is more a following indicator. Instead of critisizing I request that you read the latest data that is coming to light, expecially Dr. Lindzen’s findings. There will be nothing wrong with you accepting the new, correct info. I will not critisize. Our Earth is a well configured system that goes through cycles of heating and cooling. It is a large, self-sustaining system and we are a minor part in it. We are fortunate that CO2 has lesser and lesser affect the more that is added. We are also fortunate that the Earth's vegitation LOVES CO2. We are helping ourselves by feeding it CO2, as it will help grow the food our populations need to survive.

Hurray for CO2, a Gas of Life!

I earlier said that a certain 'david' ought to be removed from comments.... that was Wrong.

People such as david and pandora are drive-bys. They make their comments regardless of the information directly before them or the clear, rational writing of those they choose to demean. They say their limited-thinking piece and move on, never knowing what we know, and in many cases not wanting to know what we know.

By the time agw has been blown clear out of the water, they will have moved on to the next 'crisis.'
