Many volumes have been written about the Great Depression of 1929-1941 and its impact on the lives of millions of Americans. Historians, economists and politicians have all combed the wreckage searching for the “black box” that will reveal the cause of the calamity. Sadly, all too many of them decide to abandon their search, finding it easier perhaps to circulate a host of false and harmful conclusions about the events of seven decades ago. Consequently, many people today continue to accept critiques of free-market capitalism that are unjustified and support government policies that are economically destructive.

This is a film based on the book “Death of the Liberal Class” by journalist and Pulitzer prize winner, Chris Hedges.

It charts the rise of the Corporate State, and examines the future of obedience in a world of unfettered capitalism, globalisation, staggering inequality and environmental change.

The film predominantly focuses on US corporate capitalism, but it is my hope that the viewer can recognise the relevance of what is being expressed with regards to domestic political and corporate activity.

It was made completely of clips found on the web.

    WHY WHY WHY ? What were you thnking? WHY all the NEGATIVE imaging and SPLIT SCREENS???Absolutely pointless effects. And ENOUGH with the GLOBAL WARMING PROPAGANDA. I can say the rest of the message was pretty bang on though. 2.5 Stars for the message.

    I find it compelling watching. It is the truth and if this do not awaken us, what else?

  • I am so with you Mike on the needless and annoying effects. I’m a few minutes in and if it keeps up I’m going to stop. The music is a bit over intense too.
    Sigh, I love documentaries.

    I gather in the end, what this video is saying is bend over and try to enjoy the ass slamming you have in store for you. I too found the effects annoying and unnecessary.
