I recommend this movie for everyone.
I know that it is fear, and worry that puts people off of documentaries, but education and knowledge about these topics is very important.
While corporations like Tyson and Monsanto seem like unstoppable Goliaths the film does remind us that at one time the Tobacco industry seemed just as unstoppable. Change is possible.
My personal favorite part of the movie was their interview with Joel Salatin, a man who I once had the honor of being yelled at by.
I especially like the quote in the movie.
"Imagine what it would be if, as a national policy, we said we would be only successful if we had fewer people going to the hospital next year than last year. How about that for success?" - Joel Salatin
It really struck a chord with me.
I understand that some people do not wish to look out for others. They have made their own way in this world, and they believe they deserve what they have.
We are all in this together. If we do not look out for each other, it will come back to haunt us.
What if we cared about the lowest people first?
What if we worked for a society where we could enter at any level, and still be happy.
It always surprises me when corporations and courts can rule make decisions in favor of companies instead of the people. When a little child dies because he catches ecoli from a hamburger, how can people not want laws to be passed that will protect everyone? Judges, and executives from meet companies eat at fast-food restaurants too.
Whenever anyone is hurt by accident or on purpose it should be a reminder to all of us that we are in this together.
