Who is actually in charge of America? Is it the people or a secretive network of powerful people comprising the ruling 1%? Danny Schechter’s “Who Rules America?” takes a comprehensive look into the United States’ governing system and reveals the behind-the-scenes powers that control the nation. This eye-opening expose highlights the two Americas: one in which people have democratic freedom in choosing their leaders, and another wherein everything is dedicated to the ruling class.
As Schechter peels back the curtain, audiences are given a glimpse of the hidden network of power that governs America, including the media, Wall Street, the military, and corporations. With on-the-ground footages and expert analysis, “Who Rules America?” lifts the lid on the genuine decision-makers behind the world’s self-proclaimed democratic role model. This feature-length documentary is a must-watch for anyone looking to understand the true inner workings of America’s political system.
