Is This Documentary Broken?
(Click Here To Let Us Know)

Ethos, a powerful new documentary hosted by Woody Harrelson, is an investigation into the flaws in our systems, and the mechanisms that work against democracy, our environment and the the common good.

With a stunning depth of research and breadth of analysis, this film delves deep into the inter-connected worlds of Politics, Multi-National Corporations and the Media.

Most of us have wondered at some point how we have arrived at a situation where democracy is touted as having created an equal society when all we see is injustice and corruption.

Politicians openly deceive the public with the support of major corporations and the mainstream media. Wars are waged, the environment is destroyed and inequality is on the rise.

But what is the source of these institutional mechanisms which – when we scratch the surface – are so clearly anti-democratic, so contradictory to the values we hold in common and yet so firmly embedded that they seem beyond discussion?

Ethos opens a Pandora’s box that has it’s roots in the cross-roads where capitalism-meets-democracy, implicates every power-elite puts profit before people and finally offers a solution whereby you – the viewer – can regain control using the one thing they do care about – your cash.

    some good information but still fairly shallow and narrow minded, if you make it too the end the final message is whats truly important.

    “twice oscar nominated”
    big fucking deal

    • Jessica Somers

      how many times have you been nominated, smartass?

    I think this actualy is a very important documentary because it’s this one that can actually reach the masses. As Gordon commented, the information presented is relatively shallow. But that’s seen from the eyes of people who are already well informed by watching other documentaries about the subjects presented in this one.

    Keep in mind, that the majority of the people never watch documentaries and don’t go on the internet to look for the type of information presented here.
    This documentary would be a great start for people who are not in the know yet. Get this movie on dvd for instance and have your parents and other people watch it. This movie would definitely be a better start for them, than for instance the Zeitgeist movies.

    I think this was a good documentary but the Zeitgeist was allot more effective for me. It may be though that I saw the Zeitgeist movie first. I would recommend watching that if you have not and you want more information. In this video they actually took a part from the first Zeitgeist and incorporated into this.

    This is all Americans ever do; watch movies and discuss. You are well known for taking no action. You deserve nothing less than what you get.

    • fuckthisguy

    The documentary, ETHOS has “been removed by the user”???…I thought I was the ‘user’. Not in time however, I already watched it and wanted to show it to my Psych. class but, if you’ve seen it, you’ll understand why it has been censored. But where does docheaven weigh in on this? RSVP.
