Conversative Nanny State Movie
We're at a critical moment in our country's politics and it's time to shatter the myth that conservatives are advocates of the free market.
Help fight the conservative myth! Please support a documentary project that can make a huge difference on the most important issues facing us today - from the economic crisis to healthcare - by changing people's minds. I found a great book that I'm turning into a series of short online films that expose the reality behind the Republican agenda.
Economist Dean Baker's book "The Conservative Nanny State" and makes the case that progressives make a mistake allowing conservatives to portray themselves as 'free market' advocates when they are really in favor of a government that constantly intervenes to support corporate interests and the wealthy.
Popular progressive talk show host Thom Hartman is going to be doing voice work for the film, which will be released in segments on YouTube and then on DVD.
Each segment will be a fun, informative look at how conservative policies really aren't free market at all but use the power of the state to make the rich richer. The segments will focus on specific issues like tax shelter, copyright law, CEO pay; about a dozen short segments in all..
If you're interested in learning more about Dean Baker's book The Conservative Nanny State (How the Wealthy Use the Government to Stay Rich and Get Richer) you can read the whole book free right here.
Please help, contribute, and spread the word about this project. All donations will get email updates on the project.
