Contents:

DESPOTISM (1946, 11:00)
Extraordinary film that seeks to explain how effectively a society can be placed upon a graduated scale between democracy and despotism.

DON'T BE A SUCKER (1947, 17:21)
An extraordinary film produced by the U.S. War Department on the eve of the Cold War urging Americans not to give into the kind of fanaticism and hate-mongering at home that the country fought to defeat abroad during the Second World War.

LONGINES CHRONOSCOPE: HERMAN TALMADGE (1954, 14:26) (1960, 20:03)
The surroundings of this Longines-Wittnauer Watch Company public affairs television show are modest in content, and the mood is therefore intentionally moderate in tone. Then the guest of the show, Governor of Georgia Herman Talmadge, opens up his mouth, and the contrast of his words to his surroundings becomes at times hair-raising. With the birth of the modern civil rights movement in general, and school desegregation in particular, being the overarching topic at hand, discussion about democractic party politics and industrial development does little to escape these historic developments. Though not itself an anti-fanaticism film, it is in fact a time-capsule containing all that progressive social politics has worked half a century to keep a thing of the past.

OPERATION ABOLITION (1960, 45:00)
An attempt to characterize as communist inspired one of the seminal events of the 1960s social revolution, that being the May 1960 student and activist demonstrations against the activities of the committee. OPERATION CORRECTION entirely deconstructs this film, while at the same time making the same case against the committee that the students and activists were.

OPERATION CORRECTION (1961, 43:50)
The American Civil Liberties Union's rebuttal to the House Un-American Activities Committee's film OPERATION ABOLITION.


Fanaticism (from the Latin adverb fanatice [fren-fanaticus; enthusiastic, ecstatic; raging, fanatical, furious]) is a belief or behavior involving uncritical zeal or an obsessive enthusiasm. Philosopher George Santayana defines fanaticism as "redoubling your effort when you have forgotten your aim". The fanatic displays very strict standards and little tolerance for contrary ideas or opinions.Tonu Lehtsaar has defined the term fanaticism as the pursuit or defence of something in an extreme and passionate way that goes beyond normality. Religious fanaticism is defined by blind faith, the persecution of dissents and the absence of reality. Fanaticism is a result from multiple cultures interacting with one another. Fanaticism occurs most frequently when a leader makes minor variations on already existing beliefs, which then drives the followers into a frenzy. In this case, fanaticism is used as an adjective describing the nature of certain behaviors that people recognize as cult-like. Mead referred to the style of defense used when the followers are approached. The most consistent thing presented is the priming, or preexisting, conditions and mind state needed to induce fanatical behavior. Each behavior is obvious once it is pointed out; a closed mind, no interest in debating the subject of worship, and over reaction to people who do not believe. The behavior of a fan with overwhelming enthusiasm for a given subject is differentiated from the behavior of a fanatic by the fanatic's violation of prevailing social norms. Though the fan's behavior may be judged as odd or eccentric, it does not violate such norms. A fanatic differs from a crank, in that a crank is defined as a person who holds a position or opinion which is so far from the norm as to appear ludicrous and/or probably wrong, such as a belief in a Flat Earth. In contrast, the subject of the fanatic's obsession may be "normal", such as an interest in religion or politics, except that the scale of the person's involvement, devotion, or obsession with the activity or cause is abnormal or disproportionate to the average.

Extremism is "the quality or state of being extreme" or "the advocacy of extreme measures or views". The term is primarily used in a political or religious sense, to refer to an ideology that is considered (by the speaker or by some implied shared social consensus) to be far outside the mainstream attitudes of society. It can also be used in an economic context. The term is usually meant to be pejorative, i.e. expressing a negative or a disrespectful connotation, a low opinion, or a lack of respect toward someone or something. However, it may also be used in a more academic, purely descriptive, non-condemning sense. Extremists views are typically contrasted with those of moderates. In Western countries for example, in contemporary discourse on Islam or on Islamic political movements, the distinction between extremist and moderate Muslims is commonly stressed. Political agendas perceived as extremist often include those from the far-left politics or far-right politics as well as radicalism, reactionism, fundamentalism and fanaticism.
