New World Order, the new documentary from SeeThink Films and IFC, opens with an audio recording of John F. Kennedy addressing the American Newspaper Publisher’s Association in 1961. “The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society,” he says. “And we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, and secret oaths, and secret proceedings.” He goes on to warn that threats to security will lead to official censorship and concealment and that the only hope for a free and independent America rests with the media. The previously blackened screen changes to the Zapruder footage of Kennedy’s assassination, and then a second voice booms from the speakers. “You want us to stand down. You want us to back off. You want us to shut up while our country and our sovereignty and our borders and everything we’ve even been everything we’ll ever be is being destroyed.
