It is the beginning of the on-screen intro text to to the 1987 movie The Running Man. I rewatched it while I was riding the indoor bike yersterday...funny to read it and realise that this is 2017 and while we aren't mining Mars some of the rest is spooky-close to what we have. Art is funny like that....
My copy is the Special Edition put out by Artisan not too long after the Patriot Act was passed. There are mini-documentaries, one in Special features on the prime disc and more on the second disc. The prime doc is about the Patriot Act being destructive of Liberty and The Constitution.
