Should be mandatory viewing for people everywhere - especially Governments.
6 April 2012 | by (Ecuador) – See all my reviews

This documentary is one of the best I've seen for a long time. It takes a very considered and sober look at some of our planet's most pressing problems - not in isolation but together, and extrapolates some conclusions which should give us all great cause for concern. The human race is locked into a number of systems of behaviour, commerce, politics and economics which serve certain vested interests ... to the long term detriment of our planet, and therefore ourselves. But these systems and belief structures are so entrenched (and reinforced by those vested interests - who influence our governments) that breaking out of them (necessary for human survival) is going to be very challenging, and probably very painful. The sooner people WAKE UP to these truths, and start taking individual action based on these truths, the better off we will all be. There is a PAIN-TRAIN coming for human civilization as we know it, one way or another. How are you going to prepare for it?
