I saw a movie today about how corporations used corporate mercenaries to overthrow the regime in Haiti because the Haitian president decreed an increase in the minimum wages from 30 cents to $1 a day, which increased the company's production costs. It also features a conspiracy by a mysterious organization of very rich people to control the water resources of Bolivia by helping a bloody dictator stage a coup with the CIA's blessings (in exchange for US control over oil). The film also exposes the image of the millionaire businessman philanthropist environmentalist who in reality is only trying to increase his and his organization's wealth through controlling vast expanses of land as "nature reserves".

And there was not a single Arab or Muslim bad guy, and one of the bad guys was ex-Mossad.

I got out of the movie shaken, but not stirred.
