Owned and Operated Documentary
anyone seen this? i think they did a pretty good job up until they introduced their solution at the end. the open source devices were pretty cool but no way people are gonna start living like that without being forced to.

here's a link


IMDB Rating 9.2

Owned & Operated is a mosaic of the world through the lens of the Internet. Showing our lives as consumers, under the thumbs of privileged individuals and their methods of control. But the world is awakening, and the experience is something outside the normal rules of social interaction, causing excitement in those who are not served by the current system... and fear in those who are pampered by it.

I'm watching it right now, what should I take away from it?

Seems to me like it is trying to say all corporations are bad, and consumers are idiots. no?

re: Owned and Operated Documentary
I just watched the documentary. There was a fundamental flaw in how it portrayed it's message. It kept speaking of being owned and controlled by the government and how the people will eventually revolt. It used the occupy protest, European protests, Santiago, Egypt, etc... But all these people want government run programs and benefits, which is contrary to their intended message. It also was more anti-business and bordered the line of condoning a "fair-share" approach of government.

It was all over the place and sent some very confusing mixed messages. No government control of the internet, but want government control wall street and businesses. It talks of revolution and destroying big business, but speaks of well paying jobs and government benefits.

Won't you be more owned and operated and controlled when your well being and livelihood is given to you?

Kudos for sitting through an entire documentary even tho u disagreed with the messages! If we had more people that went into things with an open mind maybe we could actually make positive changes both sides would agree on and no revolts would be necessary in the future of america.
