Michael Moore once again takes on the capitalist establishment and describes how a system that once worked for all was perverted and resulted in the dumbfounding bank bail out scandal of recent years.
Personally I think that the citizens of the U.S. in particular need to stop thinking of “socialism” as a dirty word; they have basically been brainwashed by their fat cat overlords into thinking that socialism is the same thing as “totalitarian communism” which is utterly absurd. Watching ordinary working class Joes describing Obama as a “socialist” as if a vote for him were like voting for Chairman Mao is frankly astonishing to anyone outside the American borders. Democratic socialism is a system that works perfectly well within a capitalist framework and is basically just a set of rules organised around social justice and a fairer, more equitable distribution of wealth thus regulating the rich and powerful, preventing them from the wholesale exploitation of the lower classes – ie. everyone else. The current financial climate is frankly unsustainable and its logical conclusion would be the population of the Earth becoming the 1% of billionaires sitting in a nice eco-bubble of their own construction while the rest of the planet and its population rots away to apocalyptic oblivion as if the world were an old episode of Star Trek.
It’s about time the working and middle classes took their power back and realised that a vote for the corporate puppets that are the right wing conservative parties is like volunteering for slavery.
