we-the-people-2-0

We the People 2.0 is a visual essay about the loss of democracy in the United States. The film describes a profound change in thinking at the grassroots level. The story unfolds through the eyes of rural people who have faced decades of toxic dumps, drilling and mines in their communities. We learn with them that the reason why they “get what they don’t want, again and again,” is because they are, by law, truly powerless. These people come to understand that the US has become an oligarchy, run by the corporate few who ignore the rights and will of the people. Thomas Linzey, a nonprofit attorney’s inspiring words shows how, we, the people, can turn this around and lay claim to our democracy.
