Selling the Drama

Interested in saving the world from Mulit-Media Conglomerates and Trans-National Organizations?

You can start by renting Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott's fine documentary The Corporation (based on The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power by Joel Bakan) from your local Blockbuster or Hollywood Video or purchasing the film from a Virgin Megastore or Best Buy and loading it into your Sony or Panasonic DVD/VHS player.

Proponents of the film call it a brilliant piece of leftist propaganda, while critics call it a brilliant piece of leftist propaganda.

After viewing the film you can read an interview with Achbar on your Apple iBook or HP Compaq Presario here:

In it, he discusses the film's inception and his experiences meeting many of the CEO's and economists (including famous right-wing free trade advocate Milton Friedman) that are profiled and interviewed throughout the piece.

Now, I'm going to watch some news (Viacom, Murdoch, GE) or maybe some sports (Disney) and get some sleep (?).
