Despite the United Nation's eventual intervention, most of Liberia's young people continue to live in abject poverty, surrounded by filth, drug addiction, and teenage prostitution. The former child soldiers who were forced into war have been left to fend for themselves, the murderous warlords who once led them in cannibalistic rampages have taken up as so-called community leaders, and new militias are lying in wait for the opportunity to reclaim their country from a government they rightly mistrust.

He is the God of a second chance. I like the ending. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Where there is life, there is hope.

This was by far, one of the absolute best documentaries I have ever seen and I spend a tremendous amount of my free time watching them every day. How Shane and his crew had the courage to venture into such a dangerous world as complete outsiders, yet maintain a sense dignity and find opportunites for comedic overture...fantastic! I am just about 40 yrs old and I remember learning about general buck naked back in the 90s. Reading and watching stories of him and his child soilder army. To see him now, it kind of brings a chill to my spine. Hopefully, he has TRULY repented for the evil deeds of his past, rather than simply a new form of religion with which to manipulate those around him, ESPECIALLY the children to whom he preaches. What an amazing piece of work you guys have produced here. Thank you so much & you DEF just aquired a new subscriber. 👍🏻

Sociopaths and the like who want power and control react to the environment around them and adapt, they learn how they can assume control and power under their current circumstances. Thats all you are seeing. If the country was thrown back into a bloody brutal civil war, I'm willing to bet Mister Butt Naked would be killing babies and drinking blood again. But for now I'm thinking he is enjoying the praise and admiration and protection he is getting for being "converted" and the power of influence he has over others at that missionary. He is gaining trust from the others at that missionary and they can easily be manipulated, which can be used to his advantage. I mean really? They happen to all be singing and dancing as the crew walks up? And the way he talks about his past crimes so casually? The way he speaks to the crowd at the church? He is a phony and a sociopath and will always be dangerous. I would be so happy if I was wrong.

Mrfairchap (3 days ago)
Do you want to know the truth of the matter? ALL the African countries were given their independence way too early, before the indigenous people had the training, qualifications and infrastructure needed to support a peaceful country. Far-sighted people warned about this at the time, but they were labelled as colonialists. The result? War, tribalism, famine, massacre and death - and millions of dead children.

calamorta (7 days ago)
Makes sense. Nearly 1/3 of the global population is Christian, but ofc that there aren't smart and honest people among them. I'm an agnostic myself and holy shit, why do people need to shit on the religious people? ps: I know it's a figure of speech, but still, this kind of shit only generates heat between Christians and non-Christians.

General Butt Naked was actually singing a Nigerian Christian song. What the song meant was; May the work of God never spoil. The work of God will never spoil.
Love'OF theMostHigh (8 days ago)
What stands out to me, is that I actually knew a lady from Liberia. And coming from such a place, her attitude certainly didn't reflect it in humbleness. She was borderline arrogant to some degree. And many who come from such places, have the audacity to look their noses down at black Americans once they get here. Really?? Trust me, I get poverty isn't good for anyone. And I get wanting a better way of life. But don't come to America for that better way, and then start looking your noses at black Americans, once you get a few paychecks and a happy hour w/ some new friends! That's what stands out to me. And not just Liberia, but Kenya, Ghana, Ethiopia, Sudan, and other nations like China, Japan, Jamaica, Virgin Islands, etc. You can't control coming from poverty, we get it!! But you can control how you now all of a sudden, have the right to start criticize blacks here in America you know nothing about; when chances are, you're coming from less. Which is why you're here in the first place.
GqGeorge7 (8 days ago)
Love'OF theMostHigh Virgin Islands? Which one are you talking about? And neither of them is poor, a GDP per capita of $42,800? In the british virgin islands and about $35,000 In the United States Virgin Islands? To let you know the BVI has no such thing as low income houses or ghettos. That's where I'm from. I can talk in that.
