I have seen the film 'INSIDE JOB' more than once before. (See http://vimeo.com/20853241 )
I found a link - http://vimeo.com/33870165 (new link added on Jan.7th, 2014), on another thread here and having some rare time to myself, I watched it again. Also you can use Builder's link here - http://occupywallst.org/forum/have-you-seen-the-film-inside-job-if-not-why-not-i/#comment-1017358 .
I thought that I knew about this film. I thought that I remembered what was in it and why it made me so angry before.
I was wrong and very shocked at just how much I had forgotten.
It needs to be watched or re-watched to really take it all in. I think that what Occupy Wall Street is all about is right in that film.
It was made in 2010 but nothing has changed. Things are actually worse. We should not forget how and why we are all in the sh*t we are in.
If you have not seen this film, you need to.
If you have seen this film - you need to again. It is 1:48:39 long and one of the best uses of nearly 2 hours that I can think of (unless the mr or mrs. is up for some 'happy time').
I think that there is a lot of good stuff on this forum but sometimes perhaps we have to get back to basics and take a look again and remind ourselves what it is all about.
I just did and will be looking to buy a truck full of pitchforks to hand out next spring after the hard winter to come.
If you don't feel anything after watching it again, then you're either dead or a banker or an economist. This film gets better as it goes along and it starts pretty well anyway and by the end I felt angry but less in the dark. The final section is ... well you'll see.
I shall be e-mailing the link to everyone I know. No one can watch this and be confused about where the blame lies and what needs to be done and why Occupy Wall Street is so important.
Isn't that why we are all here?
