    Boring, same old tired dance of 'greedy' corporations, lobbyists, corporate-funded junk science, and political corruption. It's like yet another doc about people starving in Africa. Please stop it already. Yes, it's all about profits, and successful corporations do one heck of a good job delivering them. Two thumbs up! The corporations are not to blame, no matter what they are into (oil, pharma, tobacco, etc). Rather, its the system we presently have that demands they conduct themselves this way. A doc on newer forms of government incorporating increasing amounts of tech, especially AI, into decision making would be very interesting. Perhaps it will start small, in the private sector, factoring out middle managers, HR, and other drains of the bottom line before moving to public office. They say in this doc we have 30 years before epic collapse. If we are that close to the cliff, why not try something radically new. Why not a doc on that? People are the problem, so factor some of them out.
    I want to see a virtual politician win an election.

    Eating too much of bad meat (loaded with chemicals--antibiotics, growth hormones, chemicals in feeds, and who knows what) is only one problem.  Other problems are GMOs, synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, the big agri-businesses who use all these chemicals and who put small organic farmers out of business.  The biggest problem is the governmental agencies who are partners of the agri-behemoths.

      You are correct.

      A wonderful fact based documentary. Those that feel annoyed or uncomfortable by this docs and others (such as Seaspiracy; Cowspiracy and David Attenborough's wonderful docs) are simply "blaming the messenger". Pretending that the predicament, pointed out in these films, is somehow natural and somehow an unavoidable "force of nature" is the height of irresponsible foolishness. To continue down this road is inevitably going to end up bad for humans, other species and the global environment. It is just a matter of time and time is running out!

      Without governments based on the initiation of force, threats, rulers, we will have a chance to thrive. With them we have suffered war, poverty, social collapse, since the beginning of politics. We need a new political paradigm based on non-violence, reason, rights, choice. It's only logical.
