    How do you "replace the central role of economic ideology [what does that even mean??]... with a larger role for political process that answers to us"??

    Without question the power of the individual citizen in effecting change in government has diminished inversely to the increase in power of the corporation.   Bakan and Gore talk about that in detail, and much more clearly than Moore understands or is able to share with his audience.

    But that's DIFFERENT from a criticism of Capitalism.

    Do you understand what capitalism is?  Maybe that's where we should start.

    And no, you don't have to be an economist, but some rudimentary knowledge of economics helps, at least in not being fooled by people like Moore.
