How does U.S. policy compare to other democratic nations? A filmmaker traveled around the world asking people about their nations' policies and about how they view the United States. After returning, research was carried out to see if what people were saying was true. Interesting differences between the U.S. and all the other developed countries were found. Shot in ten countries, Considering Democracy weaves together seemingly different topics into an interconnected tapestry. People from around the world act as a mirror for Americans to see a reflection of political power in the United States.
While I am just one person (A Girl with a Camera Productions) if we work together, our reach and strength increases.
Thank you, Filmmaker Keya Lea Horiuchi
Perhaps part of the corruption of the American system is caused by the phenomena of the Revolving Door. Should corporations and private contractors be able to hire our former representatives and exploit the relationships that they built during their tenure in public service? It seems that this might be a danger to both free market capitalism and the contracting process, possibly setting up systems where contracts are given to businesses that don't do a good job - they just happen to be well connected. Yikes! (The first step is to know about it. The second step is about talking to others and the third step would be to look for solutions. It can happen.)
And to the Fascism for which it stands
One subverted nation, under the god called Mammon
With Liberty and Justice for the wealthy elite... and for everyone else, a lifetime of slavery"
Now piss off peasant while I count my coins... stolen from the not-so Federal Reserve.
