The left side
28 February 2005 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I'd like to say something to all American viewers that for some reason dislike this short animation: it's not a history lesson, it's a joke.

The only thing that Moore implies here is that "fear is the mother of violence", that's the one and only thing that links the hole animation. The rest is a personal view of the country history based on that first assumption. It's a great critic to the living hysteria in America and the basis of modern capitalism.

If we think about it for a minute, it's not hard to realize that almost all relationships around us are based on competition and survival of the fittest instead of true bonds based on love, care and common property...

I really hope the world turns to the left side; that's where our heart is...
