Capitalism: A Love Story

This is a Micheal Moore movie, America’s most hated film director.  Bought a pair of tickets to watch this movie with Pinky, thinking that it would be a romantic show; so much for the ‘A Love Story’ at the back of title.  Ironically, we missed the word Capitalism (but search my vocabulary, its not even in my dictionary)  So the first 15minutes of the show hypnotised Pinky to her dreams, sleeping comfortably on my shoulder.  Not wanting to spend my money to sleep in a theater, I encouraged myself to stay awake throughout the session and Im so proud of it.

If you’re not a very political or patriotic person, the movie isn’t right for you in the first place.  I don’t even care about the election in my nation, why should I care about the states, moreover it doesn’t really concern us?  But you’re so damn wrong!

The movie gives a good perspective on how Capitalism has affected the US for the past 8 years under the management of ‘you-know-who’, whos been making the Rich people richer and the poor people poorer by taking away everything they have, irregardless of their situation.  That was obviously something that wasnt shown in the media, did it?  And how companies benefited profited from the employees who have died by buying insurance on their behalf and stating themselves as beneficiary.

And oh, this made me recall why people would vote for the President, Mr Barack Obama, one who emphasized on CHANGE during his debates for election.  They have been on the down side for the past 8 years and someone should end the deed, not continuing it.  The election results flashed in the movie was also something that wasnt showed on our screens.  People actually CRIED because of the president they voted for has won!

In Sing ka pore, FAT HOPE.  Why would you cry?  I dont even remembering there was 2 parties fighting for the position?  Even if there was a Good and Bad president to choose from, with the white collars in the cabinet, do you think the so-called bad president can have things done his way?  Unless the white changes to become the black, then that will be a worrying point.

The unrevealed truth? was it?

So, many read the news via the local news channel and stereotyped that the guy who had committed suicide after stabbing a professor in NTU was depressed and couldn’t take things in his stride.

However, on facebook, there is a group of people, who I believe are his clan people, trying to help him to seek justice in another way.

Well, Im in no position to speak this but I really wonder if the local media are reporting the facts or they’re just reporting what they had received from anonymous people. See, if its not a fact, it should not be in the news. Yes the fact that he died, but the actual story behind it was not? Enough of the talking, read the article posted by his friend in blogspot here.
