“Four Horsemen” may very well be the most important film of this generation. Written and directed by Ross Ashcroft, the independent documentary delivers an obvious, understandable message with the help of 23 mature experts in the fields of economics, politics, and banking. This writer is not a professional film critic, but I have so much admiration and gratitude to express for the men and women who produced this masterpiece that it is difficult to come up with superlatives to match their efforts.

Number one, everyone must see this film.

Now there are many films, both fictional and non-fiction documentary, which critics point out are “must see”. Perhaps many have come to see such recommendations and, because of previous experience where the quality promised by the reviewer did not live up, walk past for avoidance of disappointments like those of the past. In this case, I would strongly suggest not walking by. Four Horsemen will not disappoint.

If there were one word to describe the film I suppose it would be “mature”. Every man and woman, from those who appeared to those who created this independent artistic achievement, participated at the highest levels of maturity. A video which spoke about the process of making the film, talking to the behind the scenes people who worked and learned while doing it, conveys the feeling of the makers about the seriousness and importance of the film’s ultimate message.

It must be mentioned that a person does not need to have a degree in economics or finance or politics to get the film’s message. As one of the men interviewed in the film pointed out, the world’s economic condition is simple: it boils down to power and democracy. Because of the easily understandable way the film moves, its message is recommended for all audiences. Thus far “Four Horsemen” has been seen over 450,000 times since the producers Renegade Economist posted it on YouTube in September 2013.

If you have already viewed “Four Horsemen” I do not have to tell you to watch it again – that is self-evident. If you have yet to view the film, you simply have to. After viewing it you will find it impossible not to recommend family and friends to become aware of its message. For those who have an interest in cutting to the chase and learning the mechanics of economics and international finance, your ship has come in – this is what you want.

Ross Ashcroft and his dedicated team of filmmakers have smashed a grand slam

These men and women have created a work of artistic achievement of the highest order, raising the bar higher for others who wish to create world-changing masterpieces. “Four Horsemen” successfully conveys thoughts on the world’s biggest ideas, leaving viewers with no excuse for “not knowing” about the falsely described “complexities” of big business, big banking, and opaque economic theory.

The independent film flawlessly matches in potency its final message – that predatory capitalists’ greatest enemy is a self-educated individual, a self-educated society – who reads, understands, and walks with their eyes wide open.

“Four Horsemen” will without a doubt open many millions of pairs of eyes, in a manner that is very, very wide.

World wide.

Predictions are somewhat slippery in that the basis of them are intuitive or come from an instinctive perception. Such perceptions may be seen as a kind of “gut feeling” – a sensing of future circumstances and situations – arrived at naturally through thoughts about one’s present level of awareness of the world. Coming to find that women have a greater ability to speak truth directly, without any thoughts of transmitting information that misleads or hides or omits essential details, I am willing to predict that women’s voices will come to the forefront in the year 2014.

Women’s voices will come to drown out those of men who are accountable for the present conditions on Earth with regard to the largest problems humanity faces. These are war and peace, human rights and justice, inequality and fairness, world economics and finance, and all other issues of great magnitude and importance. There is a sense that the world is coming to a place where the historical addictions to war, greed, lack of compassion for fellow human beings, and a painfully obvious, male-led bankruptcy of spirituality shall be correctly diagnosed and treated by the women of the world.

This coming major shift in the people of the world’s perceptions will result in a planetary restoration of the highest possible, positively consequential, potential-reaching condition of balance yet existent. When one places his/her attention on what some consider an impracticable vision of a utopia or heaven on Earth, women in 2014 will lead the way toward such a world, with the main tool being speaking the truth.

Women will lead the world in making 2014 the year of truth

Most are aware of major revelations that have had an impact on perceptions in recent months and years. As time moves on to the year 2014 one can sense that a great increase in revelatory acts taken by men and women will occur, a kind of world trial where humanity is the jury, where testimonies of the world’s women are the most relevant in the juror’s minds. The location of this “world courtroom” is the internet, where everything that becomes written is a part of the testimony on the stand by men and women from all nations and regions.

Humanity has become essentially the prosecutor, striving to arrive at the truth concerning the details and facts of crimes against humanity charges, embodied in all the problems which man faces such as war, greed, corruption, and so on. The defense attorneys are those on Earth who wish to maintain the so-called status-quo, with no penalties for their clients’ actions that have led to harming of people – the common-sense definition of crime.

The world trial shall not be televised, because the defendants are the owners of the media corporations, and know that world public opinion is the jury in their “courtroom”. Those men and women who take the witness stand come as experts and knowledgeable in the arenas of major human fields, including politics, spirituality, economics, military, finance/banking, and corporate law.

Come 2014 the world jury will find that their ability to discern the “witness” testimonies has become much more excellent, resulting in wholly accurate conclusions being reached on whether various witnesses are speaking the total truth or hiding, using misdirection, omitting, and/or outright lying on the “stand”. With women – and those men who have made an effort to hold balanced perceptions – leading the way, a point will be reached where witnesses who commit perjury, giving false testimony while under oath, shall be virtually instantaneously identified for lying on the stand.

2014 is the point in history where lies are no longer acceptable – humanity will accept only the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth

“But what is war? What is needed for success in warfare? What are the habits of the military? The aim of war is murder; the methods of war are spying, treachery, and their encouragement, the ruin of a country’s inhabitants, robbing them or stealing to provision the army, and fraud and falsehood termed military craft. The habits of the military class are the absence of freedom, that is, discipline, idleness, ignorance, cruelty, debauchery, and drunkenness. And in spite of all this, it is the highest class, respected by everyone… and he who kills most people receives the highest awards.”

Leo Tolstoy (War and Peace)


In the following video Nobel Laureate Mairead Maguire and Mother Agnes Mariam of Syria lead a truthful discussion about the three years long warring in Syria. They represent the profound leadership from women which shall transform the world in the year 2014.
