Very pleased. My first piece hits Big Hollywood today ……….. and it’s the featured article. Woo hoo.
In Capitalism: A Love Story, Moore describes America has having been
founded on genocide and having gotten rich on the backs of slaves. This is
egregiously false. Ayn Rand explained the truth: “Capitalism cannot work with
slave labor. It was the agrarian, feudal South that maintained slavery. It was
the industrial, capitalistic North that wiped it out—as capitalism wiped out
slavery and serfdom in the whole civilized world of the nineteenth
Moore kicks off his movie equating America to ancient Rome, running stock
footage of Rome from bad B-movies, and draws all the wrong conclusions. Rome
grew its greatest in its period of freedom as a republic, and collapsed after it
morphed into an empire with the uncontrolled growth of government controls,
including welfare state measures – bread and circuses.
The growth of taxation and government control destroyed the Roman economy and
caused the collapse of Rome – yet more taxes and government control are the very
things that this fat bastard is advocating. He mocks America’s predominance in
the auto industry by saying that we eliminated our competition, Germany and
Japan, when in fact we saved the world from Germany and Japan not in order to
destroy their auto industry but to protect the world from the tyranny and
darkness they represented. Moore mentions that we destroyed Japan and Germany
and claims that that’s why our auto industry became number one, but he neglects
to explain why we destroyed Japan and Germany. And he says nothing about how we
rebuilt Japan and Germany. In fact, we made it safe for Germany and Japan to
dominate the auto industry.
He holds Jimmy Carter up as the ideal president and holds Ronald Reagan
responsible for our economic woes. Yes, the Jimmy Carter era of runaway
inflation, 21% interest rates (up from the decades-long standard of low
single-digit rates) is Moore’s idea of heaven. Worse still, he runs footage of
Carter admonishing the American people for being too materialistic. I kid you
It’s obvious that Michael Moore believes he is talking to idiots who have
absolutely no concept of history or of reality. His entire movie is so
fundamentally flawed that I actually thought that perhaps it was one big
satirical piece, an outrageous parody.
Moore devotes a large portion of the film to a group of protesters that won’t
leave a factory that was closed. He has the audacity to bark about people power,
and about how people power is all that really counts, while simultaneously
millions (literally) are taking to the streets in the form of tea parties and
town hall meetings in protest against big government, but about that he says
nothing at all. He praises a member of Congress for encouraging open rebellion
on the floor of the House against the Bush bailout. Would he encourage the same
