Profit & Nothing But!, or, Impolite Thoughts on the Class Struggle

Who said that the economy serves mankind? What is this world where one third of the population, in the rich countries, or more precisely the wealthiest two percent in these countries, control everything? A world where the economy is law, where this law of the strongest is imposed on the rest of humanity? Why do we accept this cynical and immoral state of being? What happened to Solidarity?

This must-see film paints a vivid picture that the "aid" of foreign p [...]
