My wife and I wandered into the new 360 mall here in Kuwait today, as you do in Kuwait – visit malls. The 360 mall is a very beautiful place, pleasant surroundings with lots of water features and plants and pretty shops with pretty people. It’s a pretty place to be. We wandered into the cinema area and found that Michael Moore had released a new film: Capitalism, A Love Story. So we went in to see it.
Yet again Michael has done an excellent job pushing, poking and assembling a whole host of stories circulating the recent collapse of the western finance system (yes it was a collapse: the government bailouts just reset the counters, pushing repayment of the collapse onto future generations for decades to come).
A strong secondary theme running through the movie is that of the democratic workplace. The juxtaposition is very nice.
I totally recommend a veiwing or three.
BTW, “Dead Peasants Insurance” : want to feel like a real commodity with your employer? Dig around at your work and if you find such a thing exists then send details to Mike Myers.
