The corporate coup d’etat
In the words of the Pulitzer prize-winning journalist and author Chris Hedges: “Donald Trump is not an anomaly. He is the grotesque visage of a collapsed democracy. The creeping corporate take-over that began 45 years ago is complete. It has destroyed the lives of tens of millions of Americans no longer able to find work that provides a living wage, cursed to live in chronic poverty.” Following widely shown films such as ‘All Governments Lie’, ‘Manufacturing Consent’, and ‘The Corporation’ — The Corporate Coup D’Etat examines what we’ve become, how we got here, and why some call it ‘a corporate coup d’état’ in which corporations have taken over control of the US political system.
