OccupyForum presents…

“Heist: Who Stole the American Dream” – a Documentary,

and discussion with director Donald Goldmacher

 “Heist traces the worldwide economic collapse to a 1971 secret memo entitled “Attack on American Free Enterprise System”. Written over 40 years ago by the future Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell at the behest of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the 6-page memo, a free-market utopian treatise, called for a money fueled big business makeover of government through corporate control of the media, academia, the pulpit, arts and sciences and destruction of organized labor and consumer protection groups.

But Powell’s real “end game” was business control of law and politics. Heist’s step by step detail exposes the systemic implementation of Powell’s memo by both U.S. political parties culminating in the deregulation of industry, outsourcing of jobs, and regressive taxation –  all of which led us to the global financial crisis of 2008 and the continued dismantling of the American middle class.

Today, politics is the playground of the rich and powerful with no thought given to the hopes and dreams of ordinary Americans. HEIST goes deep in explaining the greatest wealth transfer of our time. Moving beyond the white noise of today’s polarizing media, HEIST provides us with an explanation of the crisis in which we find ourselves, and the steps we must take to restore representative democracy.”

Donald Goldmacher will lead discussion on the system as it is intentionally pushed toward oligarchy, and the problematic nature of this system in any case.

Time will be allotted for announcements.

Donations to Occupy Forum to cover costs are encouraged; no one turned away!
