Capitalism; a love story. *Official thread*
    #11211376 - 10/08/09 11:55 PM (8 years, 11 months ago)

Im making my own thread, and declaring it official.

This movie was shocking, and made me very angry or otherwise emotional.
Being from Detroit this hit home in to many ways to describe it as comfortable to watch.

I was blown away by FDR's 2nd bill of rights. I have a poli sci degree and never was this mentioned in a book or by a teacher.

I was more blown away by this:

Michael fucking Moore got a member of the US congress to say on camera she felt a coup de etat had taken place in 2008 through congress and the bush regime. :puke:

it is time to take matters into our own hands, bravo you fat, goofy looking brilliant man.

Yeah, the part with the correctional facilities for kids was something I think people need to see, it explains a lot!

the whole movie was highly provoking. Also more intellectual than most of his movies.
Very compelling arguments are made about the capitalist monster.

yeah, but if i did not intend to pay for it in the first place, he's not really losing money than is he?

if i was not able to watch it, i wouldn't, i'd find someone who did to tell me about it.

I haven't seen the film, but I'm sure he also offers a wide array of alternatives. But what good have such alternatives really ever produced? The problem is NOT capitalism; how could it be? The basic principal of captitalism is human freedom, paricularly, financial freedom. Whenever everyone is free, though, you're going to have some people grabbing more for themselves (and sometimes too much) than everyone else.

The problem, in any form anywhere, is and always will be unmitigated power consilidation. In a capitalisitic society, this takes the form of corporatism, which can usually be pretty ugly. But under other systems, like communism, we see facism and statism, even more absolute and therefore usually more brutal than capitalism ever turns out to be. Their attrocities are usually wide scale genocide and total population control.

Corporations and presidents may have created these things as well to some degree, but at the end of the day corporations and presidents are eventually rubbing up against a mob of private citizens, which prevent the acts from ever reaching the terrible magnitude of those perpitrated under communist dictators.

Obviously, I wouldn't advocate for the pure form of either one of these ideals, since both do create attrocities, and would rather see a balance of the the two.
