Das Kapital im 21. Jahrhundert: Directed by Justin Pemberton. With Michael Douglas, Vanessa Redgrave, Ronald Reagan, Daniel Huttlestone. Adapting one of the most groundbreaking and powerful books of our time, Capital in the 21st Century is an eye-opening journey through wealth and power, that breaks the popular assumption that the accumulation of capital runs hand in hand with social progress, shining a new light on the world around us and its growing inequalities. Traveling through time from the French Revolution and other huge global shifts, to world wars and through to the rise of new technologies today, the film assembles accessible pop-culture references coupled with interviews of some of the world’s most influential experts delivering an insightful and empowering journey through the past and into our future.

“I definitely learned some things, and also didnu0026#39;t. We keep on hearing the same story over and over again. The economy seems to keep lurching from crisis to crisis, and people throw up their hands every time thereu0026#39;s a collapse of sorts and then private equity shows up and buys up everything, and the cycle of wealth accumulation goes basically unchallenged. Rinse, repeat. I donu0026#39;t really think itu0026#39;s that hard to imagine a solution. Politically, it shouldnu0026#39;t even be that hard. The elites make it seem like the solutions are untenable, but they distort the narrative significantly.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI have been reading a book about the Koch brothers, and I can say with absolute certainty: do not trust ANYTHING they say. I say to my family, when Eminem even acknowledges the very existence of mumble rappers, it gives them more power. Itu0026#39;s the same with the u0026#39;mainstream newsu0026#39; media. If you even accept the very idea that someoneu0026#39;s views on an opposing channel are worth debating, you have implicitly bought into the idea that they even have merit in the first place. So itu0026#39;s simple: donu0026#39;t accept the narratives of the elites. They live in a complete bubble and think the entire universe revolves around them, and they are absolutely myopic because they only hear each othersu0026#39; opinions and live in separate zip codes. I once heard, u0026quot;To be rich in America means never having to be around people who arenu0026#39;t.u0026quot; So donu0026#39;t even accept any of the premises they are arguing from.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWe need to have a reckoning. Donu0026#39;t accept the status quo.”
