|Keep it simple, Miami.|
The point of Saturday's meetup is to show solidarity with Occupy Wall Street, a protest against economic inequality and corporate greed. Why are we allowing our electoral and economic systems to benefit only one percent of population? (Hear more in this compelling video.)
So lest Saturday's event become a pachanga with schizophrenic demands, watch the following seven documentaries and keep the focus: We are the 99%.
7. The Corporation
Corporations in America have personhood -- that is, they have all the rights afforded to actual individuals. But as this film shows, when an "individual" like Johnson & Johnson is profiled by say an FBI psychiatrist, the corporation has all the characteristics of a prototypical psychopath. They have flagrant disregard for the well-being of others, are unable to form lasting relationships, and are constantly deceitful.
6. Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room
In case The Corporation wasn't enough to enrage you, this 2005 documentary profiles a specific evil corporation, Enron, and its downfall. The bastards are actually caught on film joking about stealing money from your grandmas. Best description is the film: Enron was a bunch of former nerds on a power trip.
