Koch Brothers Exposed reveals that the Koch Brothers have launched a large network attacking American values — from their environmental pollution, to their efforts to dismantle social security for working Americans. This revealing film investigates the richest 1% in America at its very worst — the Koch brothers’ racist, and anti-environmental, and anti-middle class politics. This movie shines a light on the activities of the Koch Brothers and how they are using their limitless wealth to scale back the advances made during the Great Depression with the introduction of Medicare — and the advances made during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. I am so happy to see this much-anticipated film finally released! Robert Greenwald did an excellent job in exposing these criminals. This film should be required viewing for all Americans. These powerful and wealthy one per-centers spend vast amounts of energy and money trying to destroy social programs like Social Security that were created out of the very mess very wealthy people caused before the 1929 stock market crash. A few profited from stock manipulation and laughed all the way to the bank, but the other 99% of Americans were thrown out of work for ten years and into soup lines. The Koch brothers want to get rid of Social security altogether. And have the corporations run everything without any regulations. More of the same that got us the BP spill and the meltdown of the economy in 2008. Do the richest 1% care about you or your family? Apparently some only care about their bottom line. It’s OK to make billions, but hurting others, and attacking the programs that protect people — “Shame on you!” An interesting look at the money trails from Koch industries to all levels of elections throughout the country. I didn’t know much about the Koch brothers before this, but the amounts of money they’ve been pouring into legislators to further their agenda is staggering. A few minutes of research / fact-checking about them will show you how far-reaching their money can spread, and how much influence people like them have in policy, social issues, education, etc. The Koch brothers’ net worth tops $50 billion, and they pledged to spend $60 million to defeat President Barack Obama in 2012, according to the Huffington Post. Power like that is scary, ‘1984’ scary. It is scary that America is being sold to the highest bidder. Actually, what is perhaps more nightmarish is the fact that the American dream is in danger of becoming just a dream. One irony is that these extreme capitalists inherited their wealth from their father Fred who made his money helping the Communists and Stalin develop an oil industry in Russia in the 1930s. The most ironic scene is where one Koch brother is talking about being saved from his prostate cancer, while black people in another community are dying from cancers from pollution his company refuses to stop emitting. This is by no means an exhaustive documentary on the activities of the Koch Brothers. Many of the issues showcased and more can be found by anyone with a computer and ability to use a search engine. This should not be seen as entirely without bias. However biased, it is does not lessen the truth of the accusations, nor does it make the Koch brothers less terrible human beings. Whether you are already aware of their tactics and methodology or just recently hearing of them, I highly recommend this excellent documentary on the Koch brothers. A bit alarmist at times, but given the subject matter, how could it not? These are two selfish evildoers you need to know about. This is a thought provoking film which shows just how much influence these men have. Scary indeed. Outstanding! Bravo! This is a must-see for everyone. Documentary 2012 NR 1hr.
