if i were to reveal any thing about this movie it will not leave you stunned like it did me.

this is not an eye opener more of a scull opener.

Marx really was a giant Pollyanna.  Communism only works within a family, a Clan, and in theory.  Anywhere else it is a failed dream that just leads to the ultimate abuse of power, Authoritarianism.

People have been saying communism only works in theory since the fall of the soviet union. I'd say that communism no longer works in theory either. Once you factor in human nature the whole system comes crashing down.

Utopian, huh?  Was it just me, or were all the players of the same race?  And THEY criticize?  Drivel...

I tried to watch it, but I don't speak French and don't think that it's worth spending an hour staring at my computer to read the crazy based on the first segment.

It just writes off all the administrative costs of life. For instance you don't have to explain something but instead you can just mime it out as a big crowd. I suppose the writers thought that that's because they were using the other 90% of their brain, but the truth is that humans use their whole brain, the 10% figure is bogus. In the real world you have limited time and opportunity costs that make a large society that decided things in a mob a ridiculously inefficient way to run things. In order to feed your self in that way you have to spend time deciding how to do things, and time tending crops, and time learning history, and time teaching your children how to read and write and do math, and time healing the sick, and time building shelter, and time making tools, and time maintaining tools. Pretty soon you are out of time, and by pretty soon I mean before you have even grown enough food for your self.
