An excellent short documentary on how the libertarian multi-billionaire Koch Brothers ($82 billion) use their money to buy our government. The documentary included the subjects of voter suppression of minorities, seniors and college students; resegregation of Southern public schools; deregulation of Koch polluting factories. The Kochs have founded and funded think tanks like The Cato Institute and the Heritage Foundation that produce position papers that seem to be based on legitimate science, etc. They fund Americans for Prosperity and ALEC to eliminate the rights of the middle and working classes for the benefit of the top 1%.

Why is Bernie Sanders in this? Because Sen. Sanders, and Donald Trump, are the only two presidential candidates NOT in the pockets of the Koch brothers --- a vote for anyone else is a vote for the Koch brothers!
Jane Mayer's incredible book, Dark Money, is the penultimate written achievement on the Kochs, but this is a good viewing follow-up.
My burning question is: Just how many former FBI, Secret Service [and CIA???] have the Koch brothers hired? And given what they assign to them, just how many crooked and corrupt types are there presently working at the FBI and US Secret Service?
These are very important questions at the National Security level - - high time some politicians answer them!!!

I do not disagree with what 1inthemix is saying, however it is hard to get the opinion of those you are exposing in a documentary when they are not willing to do an interview or answer pertinent questions. The message is simple, educate yourself and make informed decisions as a consumer and realize that the world's elite is not concerned about your well being or the environment's, but rather the fatness of their own pockets. Lots of people have no idea about the power and wealth the Koch brother's posess and what they are doing to dismantle American democracy, voter's rights, unions and the public school system. I suggest watching this film and making your own conclusions.

I walked into this already believing the Koch brothers are evil. It's too bad the filmmakers couldn't rise above the Fox News mentality of "invetigative journalism".
ie. Lots of accusations with little evidence to back any of it up.
Sorry, I'm not swayed by videotaped vague, general statements made in public settings by Koch Bros. set to creepy music and sound effects looped over and over and over and over .

Perhaps a visit to the Walter Cronkite school of journalism is in order for the Producer/Director.

Unhappily, I turned this garbage off after 20 minutes.
