One major contradiction?
14 January 2018 | by ggiuliaSee all my reviews

The underlying message in this documentary is about seeking peace and avoiding violence... why do they interview and portray in a favourable way Cody Wilson, who, as far as I get it, is commercializing a DIY printable gun? Cody also speaks highly of Ross Ulbricht, whose goal seems to be eliminating the use of force in society. This contradicting aspect of the documentary I really didn't get. Having said this, Ulbricht's story seems heartwrecking and it doesn't sound like he had a fair trial.
