We are all hypocrite capitalists. I have a small business myself, I am capitalist, I recognize that there is a point where capitalism breaks down, and becomes a system as abusive as communism. When a company gets so large that it cannot be allowed to fail, that company has gotten too large, and should be broken up. As it is, the United States, and probably the whole world, is being held hostage by obscenely large corporate interests that serve nobody but the corporate executives. That is not capitalism, it is feudalism in a thin veneer that is sold as capitalism.

I don't really get why we are critisizing Michael Moore so much. At least he gets people to think about the system. He said once in an interview I saw on TV that the gorvernment is supposed to be for the people, for our own good, and that we should be controlling what happens. Is that not true?
He may do a lot of slimey things, but people need to take what they take and if they try they can still learn something from him.

You seem impressionable enough to see the proper ways BUT you will have to realize the United States
Constitutional way has been hijacked
by the ousted communists that raped Germany and Russia.
They have fled here and to other powerful countries from those countries with an ax to grind against the entire world.
They are Zionists.
Home base Israel.
Check the history and the path. It's a no brainer.
They have enough nuclear power to destroy or blackmail the world. Marxism is the key to understand the phenomenon.
MM is just a media freak controlled by those I speak of.

Maybe I'm missing something but, when did communists "rape" Germany?
A Woman in Berlin is the diary of a woman (Anonymous, 2005) who recounts the latter mass rape in the final and decisive city of the Soviet campaign—Berlin.... it is estimated that some 130,000 (because so many girls and women suffered repeated and gang rapes, the actual number is ostensibly higher) Berlin girls and women were brutally raped by Soviet soldiers—ten percent of the rape victims having committed suicide.
...Red Army soldiers were careful “to find the most attractive” women to rape and often: "German women developed informal agreements with a particular soldier or officer, who would protect them from other rapists and feed them in return for sexual compliance..."

So, he's worth 25 million.... so what? He earned that, and more power to him. It's not like he got a 25 million bonus for running a company into the ground. 25 million is small beans in todays world. He provides a product, and people have a choice if they see that product or not.

You American's are so scared of the word Socialism. Most of you probably have no idea what it is or how it works only that the media has turned it into a curse word.
Quite sad really. The rest of the world is evolving and providing healthcare and education to their citizens but in America how dare they take your precious tax dollars. lol. A country filled with selfish self-interested bumpkins.
Enjoy the fall.

Michael Moore loves that word "Democracy"
He's so blind that he doesn't even know what the American form of Government really is.
I don't think he was "destroyed" but he showed is "democrazy" side.
He couldn't answer the question properly so he went off on a long rant that had little to do with the question.

Why does France have free college, and we don't? Why do we pay high taxes, yet nothing ever gets done for us by the people we're paying? Why do CEOs make 500 times more money than the employees that actually make their businesses run? Why is our system set up so that college is a tool to put students in debt instead of putting them in decent careers? You might not like Moore's proposed solutions to anything, but you can't deny he pointed out several serious flaws with this drain-circling country of ours.

Socialism is just the softcore version of Communism but it's still Communism. The Communism that the US has fought so hard against. Don't tell me that all those deaths were for nothing.
As for hating Capitalism... Or should I say Corporationism (same difference). Without those corporations who are giving employees jobs where does he think people will get their money? It's plain nuts. Ok. So the corporations are government backed. If so, then make the people in government "unback" the corporations instead of converting to Russia or any of those transition to Commie states.
EDIT to add something below
If this was the 60s, that Moore would have been picked up the G-men already.
