The Truth Behind Capitalism | Film

The Truth Behind Capitalism (2015) critiques capitalism from the perspective of philosopher Karl Marx who popularised the terms socialism and communism.

The objective of this short documentary is to present people who are questioning the current economic and political system with information and opinions from various different sources not covered in the mainstream media about the economic structure of capitalism and the true meaning of socialism (which is the power of the community placed in the control of the people – not in the hands of a few).

The purpose is not to claim that socialism is the solution, but rather to allow people to think more objectively about community versus individualism, or co-operation and unity versus competition and division, so they can consider where they would put these two opposing values within their own, new economic model.

The film has a rating of 7.28 on the Top Documentary Films website, and it has also been reviewed here.

In just 30 minutes, the film covers the history of the central banking system, the Eurozone, the Occupy Movement, revolutionary events that took place in Iceland and in Greece, and the increasing number of coalitions and demonstrations taking place worldwide, asking the audience to critically think about one main question:

Discussion Point
