Capitalist supporters will not like this documentary.
2 September 2019 | by jano1959See all my reviews

As an European I can clearly see how many Americans will see this as communist, marxist propaganda. The thing is they really need to broaden their view on the world, visit other cultures in more than 2 hours, stay for a freaking week instead of switching holiday locations like it was TV channels. Learn the people in the other cultures. Then maybe then they can understand what this is all about, a shame really cause its a spot on documentary on one of the worlds biggest problems. Our planet can not withstand Capitalism. The resources ARE finite, whereas the growth models in Capitalism works like the resources are infinite.
