“In the good old days, we had law enforcement act a lot quicker than this.” – President Trump 2016
Land of the free?
Home of the brave?
Modern day slavery is rife in the United States of America. And according to the laws made there, it is legal.
In this shocking documentary by Ava DuVernay, we witness the crude changes in laws to suit corporations such as “Alec” (American Legislative Exchange Council) in order to further initiate and fund the privatisation of “correctional facilities” all under the guise of USA law.
This is a must see for every soul on this planet, in order to understand the corruption bubbling away within our broken systems. The continuous abuse of minorities in order to serve a small percent of the faceless wealthiest. The cancerous fear that haunts the very shadows within our souls in order to react with aggression towards one another, rather than diffuse, learn, understand and unify.
This is a film that affects us all. A social, political and human rights commentary on the ugly beast metamorphosing within an industry of systematic control over peoples in the United States and inevitably, all over the world.
And we are all part of this system, we help feed it, and it has grown so large, the question remains: how can we remove ourselves from it? Be free and no longer be dependant on it?
A hard hitting truth serum for the knowing and unbeknownst. A film that cuts at the seams of sewn-shut eyes. 8.4/10
Available on Netflix now.
