China "We Own You, You Work for Us Now"

Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) has an extremely impressive ad.  It shows a Chinese professor conducting a class in 2030 reviewing before his students why the US civilization failed.  Link to Video Here.   Citizens Against Government Waste writes:
"On October 21, 2010, Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) unveiled a national ad addressing our country’s spending addiction, the dangers of relentless deficits, and the corrosive nature of our national debt.
This new ad, which features a chilling look at one potential future scenario if America continues on its current destructive fiscal trajectory, is a 2010 homage to “The Deficit Trials,” a 1986 ad that was produced by W.R. Grace & Co.  For those who were able to view it, the ad caused a sensation; it was considered so controversial at the time that the networks refused to run it. "
The add pretty much carries the same production values and emotional punch of Apple's 1984 add introducing the Macintosh computer.  Link to Video Here.

Prior to seeing the add, I did not know about Citizens Against Government Waste , so I can't say whether it is good or bad organization. Regretfully, I can't even claim that Citizens Against Government Waste got it's idea from me, but it does point to a growing cacophony acknowledging that we are headed down an unsustainable path.
