Michael Moore thinks he is pointing out injustices through his latest documentary, “Capitalism: A Love Story“. Instead, Michael simply reminds us that life isn’t fair in a free market economy where those who work hard sometimes get the short end of the stick through no fault of their own.
I find it ironic that one of the wealthiest documentary filmmakers is bashing Capitalism. Despite highlighting that 33% of “young Americans” now believe in Socialism (37% for Capitalism, 30% undecided), it’s hard to argue for a better system. It’ll be interesting to see if these young Americans still believe in Socialism by the time they reach their thirties and make some money. Socialism just creates a new set of problems for society. Is it really that bad buying a foreclosed property from someone who can’t pay their debt on time? Property vultures are necessary to provide a floor in many devastated markets or else things go to zero and more people suffer.
There is a sense of self-righteousness when Michael tells the viewer that he can’t fight the system alone and encourages all to rise up. Michael you aren’t alone. Thousands upon thousands of us fight for what we believe in every single day. I wish Michael would put his money where his mouth is and donate all his proceeds to helping victims he continues to highlight.
