American Empire: An Act of Collective Madness

  • Aired: 09/11/2016
  • 01:57:59
  • Rating: NR
Through interviews with top thinkers, this provocative documentary looks at the founding of the Federal Reserve and explores corporate America’s hold on agriculture and U.S. foreign policy. The film is an indictment on the country’s values – its military industrial complex, its economy controlled by a system of debt and inflation, and the usurping of our natural resources.
