Who Killed the Electric Car?--Why this Movie is a Must-See

Go see it. Get all your friends to go see it. But most of all get all the people you know who STILL don't understand how Big Business runs this country to go see it.

This movie is way more credible than dark conspiracy theories--and therefore way more compelling. It shows the actual mechanisms of corporate control over public agendas in a completely human and accessible way. No off-putting statistics, but no dumbing down either. The story of how auto and oil interests stopped electric cars from happening is simple enough for a child to understand, but the way it's told will ring true for any adult with direct experience of how power actually works in the USA.

But my real point is this: let's try to get some media momentum going behind this. If folks like George Soros really want to do some good in the world--and I believe they do--they should get the right people together in the same room and launch an electric car company. That's all. The rest would take care of itself.

The expression "revolutionary technology" would take on a whole new meaning.

Go see the movie.
