THE CORPORATE COUP D'ÉTAT takes a complex political/historical theme and brings it to life. In the style of '13th', 'Manufacturing Consent', 'The Corporation', and 'All Governments Lie' it creates a powerful cinematic experience that explains how President Trump is the result of failed neoliberal globalist policies, and a 'corporate coup d'état' in which corporations and billionaires were able to gradually take control of the political process in the U.S. and elsewhere. In the words of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Chris Hedges: 'Donald Trump is not an anomaly. He is the grotesque visage of a collapsed democracy. The creeping corporate coup d'état that began 45 years ago is complete. It has destroyed the lives of tens of millions of Americans no longer able to find work that provides a living wage, cursed to live in chronic poverty.'

Deep dive
23 January 2019 | by lycochnainSee all my reviews

A well documented and argumented document on the systems in place to suppress the people's voice in favour of the greed of the wealthiest. Undoubtedly left leaning, because there is no other way to depict the systemic destruction of the working class and their "habitat", it should be an eye opener for middle class libertarians. It also offers an human level and non judgemental peak into the spirit of those from the zeroed former industrial areas who put their hopes in Trump, and how corporate democrats have betrayed their base leading to 2016 debacle. It also offers plenty of sources to continue the journey. Thanks Mr Peabody for this masterpiece of education.
