Most of us don't know where their money is. However, one thing is for certain, it's is not in the bank to which we entrusted it. The bank and our money is already a part of the cycle of the global money market.

When I was in school, the environmental movement was shoved at me. Teachers were never in favor of pollution, not one, and we had Earth Day, recycling barrels, global warming extremists showing up as guest speakers, hell, even the water bottles in the cafeteria were made of cellulose so they would be biodegradable! What does this have to do with anything? Well, I like pollution, I have ever since I was four years old, and I go out of my way to pollute as much as possible. So when teachers found out, my parents were called in, there was a school conference, and a lot of other things eventually leading up to me getting admitted to a children's hospital for depression.
My story doesn't matter so much, just the end result: what if it were your kid? What if your kid had a brilliant imagination, could dream up pretend worlds and read like a university student or was advanced in chemistry, math, English, art, etc? Would you deny your kid an imagination just to keep them conformed to what is "normal"?
Sadly, many schools nationwide would compromise a child's brain just to make them fit in with all the rest, and that's exactly the problem Alphabet tries to raise awareness of.
This is a fantastic, disturbing and brilliant little documentary that deserves an excellent rating. It never gets boring, it really makes you think, and it' a must-see for anyone, especially those with younger kids. Once you see this spectacular and shocking film you'll never be the same again.
