Documentary: Plutocracy

A film by Scott Noble
A Metanoia Production

« I can hire one-half of the working class to kill the other half » – Jay Gould, American railroad developer, 19th century.

Not quite…

Plutocracy is a brilliant exposé of the class struggle in the 19th century’s USA. More than a film, it is an ode to common decency and the indomitability of humans, even when the odds are stacked against them, and even against all hope.

Must-watch.
