Lacks substance
17 August 2019 | by brent-bilesSee all my reviews

The filmmaker rightly points out that Capitalism can be very effective at creating wealth. Unfortunately the filmmaker fails to recognize that a blend of Socialism and Capitalism, depending upon the task at hand, can be more effective at helping people find self actualization. Ultimately I am left feeling that Mr. Brooks is a kind man, that means well, but lacks the understanding that in areas such as health care, education, and law enforcement Capitalism simply doesn't work as well as Socialism This becomes glaringly apparent when the filmmakers note that Scandinavian societies, with their socialized education and health care, are the happiest on earth , and even show idyllic scenes of Scandinavian life, and yet, spend fifteen minutes dredging up every reason possible that 88% of everyone there is wrong and Scandinavia should, instead, be seeking ways to cater to the sliver of their society that still can't seem to find their place.
