The pace of this film is unreal but as the story unfolds it is apparent that speed and greed are accurately portrayed and the rush of consumerism is indeed as grotesque as the film illustrates. A trader on Wall Street states unabashedly “making lots of money is the job description of traders’ work, requiring forced consumerism”. It is common knowledge that the bribing of congress people on the hill by lobbyists results in perverse laws favoring the rich and sadly, seeing no end to this ravenous behavior is painful indeed.
The last part holds some hope so stay tuned next week as well. In collaboration with the Social Justice Center of Marin 
CMCM, Community Media Center of Marin, Channel #26 or AT&T 99 to view the film, or watch live via the web at http://cmcm.tv/livecommunity
