Michael Moore speaks at George Washington University about his new film "Capitalism: A Love Story". Chad Swarthout, senior at GWU, asks a question about free market economics and the government's role in it, and Moore admits easily that the system we have now is not true capitalism
Apparently, Moore's motivation is "what little optimism he has left" in the very system that he admits is flawed and probably a direct cause of today's economic and political crises.
Moore fails to ever address the original question, so here it is again, Michael, in paraphrase:
Is a free market and a system of private property, which is essentially capitalism, really the problem? Or is it really the fact that we give too much power to the government in which big businesses have a heavy hand in?
