“Part of making good decisions in business is recognizing the poor decisions you’ve made and why they were poor. I’ve made lots of mistakes. I’m going to make more. It’s the name of the game. You don’t want to expect perfection in yourself. You want to strive to do your best. It’s too demanding to expect perfection in yourself.”

“But if you’ve got the principles, if you know what makes a good business, if you know what makes a good manager, if you know what makes a good product, and you learn that in one business, there is some transference to other businesses. As you go along, you learn what things you’re not going to understand. Knowing what to leave out is just as important as knowing what to focus on. Somebody said how to beat Bobby Fischer; you play him any game except chess. And so I don’t play Bobby Fischer at chess.”

Hijacking Catastrophe: 9/11, Fear & the Selling of American Empire

“…Hijacking Catastrophe: 9/11, Fear & the Selling of American Empire is a 2004 documentary narrated by Julian Bond and directed by Jeremy Earp and Sut Jhally. It examines the possibility that neoconservatives used the September 11, 2001 attacks to usher in a new doctrine of expanding American power through military force under the guise of a “war on terror” and that the doctrine, known as the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), had been laid out prior to 9/11 by its authors, which include Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld, Jeb Bush and Dan Quayle. …”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hijacking_Catastrophe

Summary

The film maintains that fear of terrorism was manipulated to support goals which are in step with the PNAC; namely the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. Not just for control of regional strategic resources (natural gas and oil), but to reassert American dominance on the world stage as a warning to potential adversaries. Interviews were conducted with critics such as Noam Chomsky and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Jody Williams. It also interviews policy analysts, military brass, journalists, insider observations from Chief UN Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter and Pentagon whistleblower Lt. Colonel Karen Kwiatkowski.

The historical context of the “Bush Doctrine” is examined and compared to Wolfowitz’s PNAC philosophy. The film goes on to look at the “selling of American empire” and the possible economical, social, cultural and political implications it will have in America, and on the world if implemented further during Bush’s second term. …”

Sut Jhally

“…Satvinder “Sut” Jhally(Hindi: सुत्त झल्ली),(Punjabi: ਸੁੱਤ ਝੱਲੀ) (born 29 May 1955) is a professor of Communication at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and is a cultural studies scholar in the area of advertising, media, and consumption.[1] He is the producer of several documentaries on media literacy topics[2] and the founder and executive director of the Media Education Foundation, a non-profit established in 1992 which “produces and distributes video documentaries to encourage critical thinking and debate about the relationship between media ownership, commercial media content, and the democratic demand for free flows of information, diverse representations of ideas and people, and informed citizen participation.”[3]

Sut Jhally was born in Kenya, and raised in England. He moved to Canada in 1978 after accepting a scholarship to the University of Victoria. He continued his studies at Simon Fraser University, where he received his Ph.D.[4]

Jhally is often highly critical of popular culture, advertising, as well as various aspects of US foreign policy.

In his 1991 video “Dreamworlds” he describes the image of women in music videos as male adolescent fantasies: young and pretty, willing and eager to please men, saying no when meaning yes, often reduced to outward appearances and body parts. He concludes that an unhealthy attitude towards sexual violence can be fostered by these videos, and calls for balancing them with other cultural representations of sexuality. When MTV complained about his use of parts of copyrighted music videos, he claimed fair use and contacted the media about the story.[5]

He has been quoted as saying, “Advertising tells us that the way to happiness is through the consumption of objects. The immense accumulation of commodities has to be sold, and it is sold through the story of goods bringing happiness.” In his essay “Advertising at the Edge of the Apocalypse” and his video “Advertising and the End of the World” he argues that the major cultural force today, pervasive advertising, by constantly reinforcing a bogus association between consumerism and happiness and by focusing on individual immediate needs, stands in the way of a discussion of societal and long-term needs and leads to a squandering of resources. The video “Killing Us Softly III”, created with Jean Kilbourne, is a critique of the image of women in advertising.

Among other quotes students of his communication classes will hear from him, two of the most unforgettable are “knowing where something comes from, changes how you feel about it” and the phrase “the discourse through and about objects.”

In the 2004 video “Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land” he shows the influence of Israeli propaganda and PR on the United States public opinion regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

In the 2004 video “Hijacking Catastrophe” he argues that the “war on terror” has been used by U.S. officials as a pretext to project military power across the world.[6]

In his 2006 video “Reel Bad Arabs” he explores the vilification of Arabs in American cinema, following Jack Shaheen’s 2001 book Reel Bad Arabs.

Project for the New American Century (PNAC)

“…The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) was an American think tank based in Washington, D.C. that lasted from early 1997 to 2006. It was co-founded as a non-profit educational organization by neoconservatives William Kristol and Robert Kagan. The PNAC’s stated goal was “to promote American global leadership.”[1] Fundamental to the PNAC were the view that “American leadership is both good for America and good for the world” and support for “a Reaganite policy of military strength and moral clarity.”[2] The PNAC exerted influence on high-level U.S. government officials in the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush and affected the Bush Administration’s development of military and foreign policies, especially involving national security and the Iraq War.[3][4]

“…Digital Format Documentaries / DVD

  • Inganno Globale / Global Deceit – 2006
“The first Italian film on 9/11, in 2006 sparked a major debate on the Italian media, after having being broadcast by Berlusconi’s Canale 5.”[1]
  • The New American Century / Il Nuovo Secolo Americano – 2007
“As a follow-up to Global Deceit, The New American Century presents the historical, philosophical, economical and political background — some of which is totally unknown to the public — that lend support to the accusation that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were in fact an inside-job.”[1]
“Historically accurate, narratively captivating, The New American Century is one of the best films about the facts behind the 9/11 attacks.” –Webster G. Tarpley [2]
“The New American Century is a stunning film. It should be seen as widely as possible, in cinemas, bars, clubs, at meetings and, of course, through the internet. I’m sure the film will continue to be a source of debate and political education for many years.” –Ken Loach [3]
