the corporation


“The Corporation” sounds like an interesting documentary, inexplicably available in its entirety on Google Video:

THE CORPORATION explores the nature and spectacular rise of the dominant institution of our time. Footage from pop culture, advertising, TV news, and corporate propaganda, illuminates the corporation’s grip on our lives. Taking its legal status as a “person” to its logical conclusion, the film puts the corporation on the psychiatrist’s couch to ask “What kind of person is it?” Provoking, witty, sweepingly informative, The Corporation includes forty interviews with corporate insiders and critics – including Milton Friedman, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, and Michael Moore – plus true confessions, case studies and strategies for change.

…while it’s wonderful that this film is freely available, I can’t quite imagine watching an entire (three hour!) movie via a web page. Too bad it’s not available via some format I could burn to DVD.
