Capitalism is Evil

Posted in

Capitalism: A Love Story - is the new propaganda flick from Michael Moore which was shown at the Venice Film Festival yesterday. Unfortunately the festival neglected to send my comp tickets this year so instead we need to rely on the Reuters report which concludes ultimately that Capitalism is Evil in Moore's view.

Blending his trademark humor with tragic individual stories, archive
footage and publicity stunts, the 55-year-old launches an all out
attack on the capitalist system, arguing that it benefits the rich and
condemns millions to poverty

Moore pulls out the stops on this on, from Hedge Fund Corruption to interviewing priests who claim capitalism is anti christian because it neglects the poor. Based on Moore's public statements and previous movies is anyone really surprised?

I would love to see Moore do a movie which is anti statist. How about interviewing the folks of Poland on how wonderful communism is? Or the folks living in Mumbai India on how much worse their lives are now that socialism is no longer the norm?
