Although the Waco siege occurred in 1993 the story is relevant for the times we live in today. For the people who lived through this time were given a whole different picture then the one which is showed during this Netflix screening. Just as we assumed at the time the government was doing all it could to end the siege without trampling on civil liberties so do we assume that the government is doing the same with the hideous Pandemic we are facing. Yet years later I wonder if we will have a Waco revelation where we discover that our civil liberties were trampled on us much easier and with greater power then we had seen before. I wonder if we will see that this standoff with the Pandemic could have been handled a whole lot differently with more life’s actually saved in the end. Waco the Netflix show demonstrates to us how information can be distorted by those in power and push those who can use ultimate force to do so way before it is truly necessary to act. I wonder if this is a question we can start asking today as well.
WACO *** – Brilliant formulated story with few of the PC predictability we would expect on a Netflix series.
