Finally saw Michael Moore’s latest documentary, Where to Invade Next. Let’s just say it hit me with a wallop: My immediate thoughts poured out of me, and I feel compelled to share them. Some of it is pretty harsh, and it may cost me friends or leave people assuming I am insane or unpatriotic or naive. I do not care. My care is for people, for the world, for our kids and grandchildren and for theirs. This rant is unvarnished, unedited, and absolutely honest. I pray you will leave your political shit at the door, read the following, see the film — and join the effort to make a better day.
I’m telling you: Where to Invade Next is a must-see film. Seriously, see it. I am begging you, SEE IT; it’s on Netflix and iTunes now. Watch it with an open mind. If you’re Republican or Third Way Dem, try to put aside your feelings about exceptionalism and capitalism, just for a short space of time, and absorb what you see and hear. And try to forget that it’s Mike Moore; this is not about him. Please, please watch it: If you harbor the delusion that this is “the greatest country in the world,” prepare to have your eyes opened.
