Tomorrow - 6th - at 8 and 21 UTC, as usual.
The link is the same:
Both this and part 2 were often broadcasted on the tv.
There is more to that Defamation.
After he had the convo with those negers, the scene changes to the limo where he talks with Foxman more. And Foxman says that people - both Jews and goyim - believe they have more power than actually do, they just don't deny it, let them believe because it's good for business. Then the documentary goes on and shows how he bullies a high ranking Ukrainian official at the negotiation table.
Now, power is the ability to make decisions. If I can make my decisions, I have power over me. If others can decide what I do, they have power over me. If I can decide what others do, I have power over them. Two classical ways of controlling people is either buying them with wealth, or forcing them with arms. But there is a third way, which is the hardest to describe because it unites many things, but basically how one appears to others, how he makes others believe he holds power over them. It's like how a charismatic leader influences people with his speech. Or how kids think their parents are gods and follow their words, or how spoiled brats twist their parents to do their bidding with their nagging. Or how conmen conning people into trusting them. Etc etc. This is the strongest power of the three because it is way more subtle than money and brute force (a professor of mine called it "idol"). Foxman bluffing exactly is this, he conned people thinking he had more power he actually did, and this illusion of power really gave him that power, and he could control people according to his will. This is a common practice.
There are quite a few bits and pieces in that documentary worthy of note.
