Looks at the arguments for capitalism and technology, such as greater efficiency, more time and less work, and argues that these are not being fulfilled, and they never will be. The film is about our world, the modern civilization that eats more than needed. It's not very much information that is physically showed, its the pictures in symbiosis with music that is the real strength in this flick. It leans towards anarcho-primitivist ideology and argues for a simple and fulfilling life.Written by

The critics of this film are right to criticize it for being light on information, compelling arguments, and data backing up its claims. The film focuses more on style and visual appeal, and as someone who watches hours of drab, informative, sterile activist videos, progressive films, and leftist propaganda each week, this film was a total breath of fresh air. If you want the facts, watch one of the thousands of great films out there that give you all the research and information you need... visit the media education foundation or read some chomsky. This film may have chosen style over substance, but for me, it had enough style to get away with it. Even for someone who hates property destruction and disagrees with the philosophies of violent opposition that this film promotes, I welcomed this film. 99% of what I see every day is all-style and no-substance and backs agendas I disagree with. At least this film presents a fresh and alternative opinion.
