The Fuck-it Point

A film about civilization, why we should bring it down and why most civilized people don’t.

[THE FUCK-IT POINT]
‘When you have had enough. When you decide to take matter into your own hands and don’t care what’s going to happen to you. When you know that from now on you will resist with whatever tactic you think is most effective.’

    This is the most concise documentary on the current social, economic and environmental situation that I have ever seen. Amazing job!

    I think your message is great, but the solution is unrealistic as the average consumer wont wake up until all their comforts are taken away. But in a way I understood you saying that you should eliminate extraction of resources as means of that. That still wont change human nature, but it might reset the cycle.

    I take it you guys are from Sweden by your accent and some of the footage. I am an American that spent 13 years in Sweden so I can understand how you can easily come to the “Fuck-It” point. It’s a higher threshold in America as the consequences for disobedience are MUCH harsher. We have more wealth, guns, laws and prison inmates than anyone in the world. This is a sad state as America really has set the direction of the civilized world in recent history.

    Anyway, great documentary, i will recommend it to others!

    Hi,
    Just saw this movie on TopDocumentary. It pretty much sums it up. Would you mind if I stole it, added subtitles for my country and posted on youtube or elsewhere?

    Thanks for creating this. :)

If youtube are still blocking it, it can be seen at http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/the-fuck-it-point/ I like the sparse use of music, especially its absence over much of the dialogue. It made it more compelling to watch. “Less is More!!” Great job, well done.

    Just as the Brits experienced a big decline in their prestige and standard of living through the 20th century, America is likely to experience the same fate in the 21st. But America will not go gently into that good night. Rather, I fear this country will do what Germany did and give in to the haters and demagogues who bound here.
    If and when that happens, do not delude yourself into thinking Direct Action will survive. If shortages lead to panic and a totalitarian government, those who bust up the machines that exploit the environment will be given long sentences in the most brutal prison system in the western world.
    In my opinion the tipping point of modern civilization will be triggered by the giants of Asia as they strive to emulate the most ostentatious and wasteful aspects of American life.
    And you’re right, it won’t happen suddenly. Over the next 20 years people will try to live as they did in the past but will be more and more unable to. This will bring about a reaction against the one-percenters and the system in general. Civil unrest will be used to justify the election of a far-right government that will use vicious repression to retain the status quo.
    I’m 62, an average middle class American. Unlike most of my generation, I am aware of the price the earth has paid to support my piggish lifestyle — from the thousands of animals that have died to keep me obese to the huge amount of trash my household generates every week, and on and on. I probably won’t live long enough to pay the price, and that is another reason for me to feel guilty: My children and my childrens’s children will suffer the consequences of my generation’s mindless greed.

    I watched this. I can’t even being to describe how much I disagree with 90% of what you attempt to claim. However, you don’t have a “therefore, what?” You also don’t compare anything. You obviously are sure what you are against, but are not sure what you are for. Sure, you are for going back to the way Native Americans used to live, but you don’t clearly articulate what that really means. With less “exploitation”, means less people, which means most of human civilization will necessarily have to die. You see, the less food and resources we produce, means the less available. No way around it. You want people to unnecessarily die – adopt your plan. Your plan also requires that freedom be taken away from individuals, which you also don’t clearly state. The way we got here was because individuals were free to pursue their own objectives and goals – which usually includes making lots of money for themselves and their family.

    We clearly have a conflict of visions and we won’t agree, but I will say that the western world will have to accept a lower standard of living, but not because resources will be dwindling. It will be because governments have spent too much money from the next generation on their own generation. They have done what is called “borrowing from future demand”. When you go buy a car, you are doing the same thing. I’m going to demand something now, and will not demand something later. However, it is my responsibility to pay it back myself in a span of 5 or 10 years or whatever. When it comes to governments, they are demanding things now and spending a lot of money, but they plan on paying it back with younger peoples money. In other words, they are spending money on this generation, and the next generation will pay it back. However, that next generation will get no benefit for what they are paying for. We as a people have taken the standard of living of further generations so we can have a better life today. We are all responsible for it because we have allowed our governments to lie to us and say everything will be okay. What is happening in Greece is just the tip of the iceberg. While we disagree on the reasons why, I would agree that sometime in the near future we will have to bend over and grab our ankles soon, because we are all fucked! Once the next generation finds out about this, they won’t be very happy about it!

    Just saw “Fuck-It”. Very effective. It was a jolt to my system (oops, did I say ‘system’?). I’m 53, so it would be very easy to say that i’m too old and I’ll probably die before the next world war. After seeing the film, I’m not so sure. People who protest and get on CNN or whatever are so easily dismissed that I can see little value in it. I can see a possible strategy of working from the inside (corporation, gov’t, etc.) to do the most damage in terms of sabotage. But that will harm “innocent” people, won’t it? If someone or ones launch a cyber attack on say the electrical grid of the eastern seaboard (not that I condone such behavior), won’t people die who are say being kept alive by a machine run with electricity? What if it happens in the middle of complex surgery of some sort? Yeah, the hospital probably has a back-up electrical generator but what if it takes time to come online? Should we accept a certain number of casualties as the price for promoting a greater good which is to make people aware of what life would be like when the power plants no longer function in say 2057? Of course, I’ll have to think about this more and if that’s the only benefit of the film I say it has done it’s job well.

    Your film works fine as a basic summary of some of the massive problems we face. But that’s been done a fair bit before. And every environmental documentary ends with a message somewhere along the lines of ‘now go out there and change things’ (although admittedly few seem to suggest violent resistance & sabotage like your film.)

    But I think what’s really needed is a coherent vision of how 7 billion people (rising to 9 billion by 2050) can live together sustainably and with a decent basic quality of life. Without that, you are never going to persuade a large enough proportion of the population to put aside their own short term attempts to accumulate wealth. Fear of scarcity only increases greed.

    Unless you can show people some way that we can transition from the current global system to a new one (short of a mass human population cull), then they’re never going to actively work to bring down the old system, however doomed they know it is. They will continue to see environmental protestors as a threat, and you will not change anything.

    We need viable alternatives to oil & fertilizer based agriculture that can feed future population levels. We need to develop food sources that will survive the coming changes in climate. We need to find ways to provide power and warmth to people without further degrading the environment. We need a global plan. Rather than just tearing everything down and saying you’ve done your bit. The hard work has to come beforehand, in preparing the alternative. Desired societal change comes not as a reaction to direct action by a minority (which is why terrorism rarely succeeds), but as a result of people feeling confident enough to try alternatives themselves, and demanding that their governments allow such changes to take place. People need to see that alternatives have been fully thought through, that they can work on a global scale, and can be implemented in managable steps, before they’ll even consider a change. They’re not just going to leap into the dark.

    Civilizational collapse is not something hopeful. It brings famine, war, barbarism, death on an unimmaginable scale. If we bought the current system crashing to it’s knees without a viable alternative in place, we would not simply revert to hunter-gatherer tribes. As food runs scarce we will strip the land bare in a desperate struggle to survive. I doubt the type of people doing the right things now (permaculture etc.) will be the ones to weather the storm. In a collapse the brutal & ruthless triumph. And that’s without even considering the world’s nuclear weapon stockpile.

    I’m not saying I have the answers to any of this stuff. But I do think we need answers, before we start sabotaging our current system.

    Do you think people are mostly good, acting on chemical or spiritual signals in the brain, such as empathy and compaction, guilt, kindness, love?
    Cause the way I see it people are mostly arse holes! Does that make me a arse hole for not having unconditional love for my fello humans.
    People want to kill each other, weather it’s a rase devied that separates people or religion, or football team or side of town your from, people like having a scrap, eating there kebab and telling there pals about what knob head they filled in down the town after a few jars. Have people not already said fuck it? Fuck it I don’t care people have said. Let’s just emagian a huge crack in the sky opened tomorrow and a big smilly face popped out and said “hi everyone, god here (or alian or whatever), let’s all just calm down or your going to ruin you home, by the way try not to kill each other yeah, war and that, it’s a bit shit, so you know just find a new hobby yeah, cheers, see you in anorther few thousand years” would much change, McDonald’s would still sell burgers cause people would still want to eat them, other examples ect ect.
    So the majority of people dont care we agree. Cause they have been conditioned lied to held down by fear, ect ect.
    However some people do care, so, where are they where is the Gandhi’s or dr kings’s or bob Marley.s to bring the reviloution to majority of people’s eyes.
    I don’t really know what I’m on about you know, I wouldn’t even call my self a bed room activist cause I’m not that active. I don’t have a opinion cause I can’t trust what I can research to form one.
    Too much war, not enough love.
    I like my iPhone, I don’t grow my own veg, still eat meat, know 911 was more than fishy. Don’t vote, travel on planes, watch redtube, wast time and money, claim benefit ect ect.
    Realy enjoyed your documentary though!
    Oh just a quick one for ya, whats you opinion on the london riots, you used some footage of that. Civil unrest, or people up for a good time/ free tv’s?
    Hope some one gets back to me, took me 20 minuets to write all that nonsense.

    Hey man.

    I put the documental on YouTube: http://youtu.be/gpM1v4yDqd0
    But someone or some institution or company called Universum calls for the rights of this material. So i say fuck-it with them, i’m denying that “suppose” property of the documental and i´m arguing on youtube to allow me to publish the material, baceuse the reason is not the earnings but the simple publication to public opinion of this documetal.

    So, Am i right to defend the freedom to publish this material on youtube and put it on reach to many more public?

    Tell me if don´t to delete it immediatly.

    Very good point of view, by the way and personally, even when you out there can think anything. Global population control must be an option as an intelligent and civilized measure to control our impact on our beloved earth.

    But this is impossible when a buch of idiots still sustain that “that” would mean a total crash or collapse of human population. While thinking the numbers are growing arithmetically. very complex.

    Thanks anyway, it´s a fine work.

    We watched it, went right on to watching end:civ and watched The Fuck-It-Point again the next day. Let me tell you, it was inspiring much thought in my head. Usually, after watching docus I am left with two feelings: 1. “fuck that, it’s all so incredibly wrong” followed by 2. “well fortunately I am on the right path because I eat vegan-organic-local, plant gardens, don’t buy unnecessary stuff, especially if it was not produced under life and love-supporting conditions, smile to all people around me all the time, try to spread love, am happy with ‘the simple things’, educate myself, etc.”
    But this time the second feeling did not come up. Sadly. So here I am feeling that I should be resisting and destroying stuff but this is so much against my wish for love, peace and a happy life. Watching end:civ left me with the impression that these people are doing the right things but are not happy. So of course, as an egoistic human wishing to feel good, it is much easier for me to take ‘happy permaculture designers’ who build something good as role models instead of enraged or desperate people who aim at the destruction of something bad. But the comparism with Nazi-Germany as well as the point that it is only fear, in my case especially the fear of not being integrated into society, that keeps us from acting are very true.
    I try to seize the day but I cannot today. I feel that maybe I can again tomorrow but that would only be by repression.
    Thanks for shaking the foundations of my worldview, that hasn’t happened in a while.

    Hej! Jag vet att du är Svensk, så jag kör vidare på Svenskan.

    Kollade runt 15 minuter av filmen, men blev så upprörd av alla faktafel om kärnkraft och GMO, (etc) att jag inte kunde kolla mer.

    Du skrämmer upp folk med läskiga berättaröster, ljud och klipp på hur dålig världen är.

    Du gör är en väldig massa antaganden och konstateranden i din film utan att stödja det du påstår med fakta. En hel del av det du påstår är sant, men du målar upp en bild som är värre än den egentligen är, och drar sedan fel slutsatser för varför något är på ett speciellt sätt (exempelvis bin och GMO).

    Vi har mycket problem, men om något så är det enda sättet att lösa dessa med vetenskap och teknik. Som tur är kommer INGET att kunna hindra den tekniska utvecklingen, och den kommer bara öka i en allt högre takt.

    Läs gärna The god species (en författare som tidigare va mkt aktiv i Greenpeace), Abundance, Människorna på jorden, Till världskapitalismens försvar. Alla mycket bra böcker.

    Avslutar med några fina (korta) youtube klipp, Kolla gärna på dessa, även om du inte läser böckerna jag listade. De erkänner de problem vi faktiskt har, dock har de en annan syn på teknik och framtiden och framförallt mänskligheten än vad du har.

    Även om du inte håller med om det som sägs så är de i alla fall vackra.
