Moore is back. Absolutely brilliant exploration of everything Europe is doing right, and America is doing wrong. Mike, America's premiere video provocateur, has discovered that elusive missing ingredient that defines America today: the lack of common sense.

Workers have power, elsewhere that is. They lead happier more secure lives, are unstressed about money, and are instead concerned with community, educating their children, and maintaining a just society.

Not so much here. Although guns are on sale, I hear.

Everyone should see this film and truly think about these big issues that Moore broaches. From labor to food, drugs to prisons, to true democracy versus our embarrassing sham, he has done a great service once again.

Where to Invade Next is a serious exploration of Democratic Socialism, why and where it works, and why we are now left facing the likes of Trump v. Hillary Clinton.

Right-wing fundamentalism has hobbled America. The war has been by the rich and against the working classes, shipping jobs off shore and destroying unions. The effect has been to gut the middle class, depress wages, and to make the streets chaotic and unsafe.

It doesn't have to be this way. The solutions are not difficult to comprehend. They're doing it better.

We're not. Waving a flag around is no substitute for intelligence.

America today has become so corrupt that even mainstream news (in Britain) openly calls us an "Oligarchy."

Our government is out of touch with the common people, whose concerns and goals have absolutely nothing to do with maintaining a global military empire. The rulers in Washington are a sick lot of double-dealers, saying one thing and doing another. They abuse power, in this case the power abroad over the rest of the planet, and appease their constituents in piecemeal fashion in order to remain in charge. The result is a bastard monstrosity, far from that "shining city on a hill" they like to wax poetic over. Real American cities do not shine.
