Trying to Curb the Ignorance

Over the weekend, I saw Morgan Spurlock’s documentary Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden. It was good but it’s tailored for those who do not know much about worldly affairs. If you know the results of the “War on Terror,” that actual people with feelings live in Muslim countries, and that the population at large in these countries don’t really care for Bin Laden, then you don’t really need to watch this as it is dumbed down for the average person who doesn’t know much of anything. It’s effective for this specific crowd though and fulfills its purpose.

There was one part that cracked me up and I thought I would share it with all of you. In the beginning, Spurlock went through defensive training by an organization that prepares civilians traveling to Middle Eastern countries. The class even taught people what to do in case they are taken hostage. In one scene, Morgan Spurlock is crouched down on the  floor with his hands behind his head while an instructor play acts as a terrorist. He holds a gun to Spurlock’s head and asks in a threatening voice: “Are you going to convert to Muslim?”

Convert to Muslim?! Hahaha.

*shakes head* Oh the humanity. . .
