If more people saw this short video, we'd be in a better position to eliminate corporate personhood. Please pass it on to many people if so inclined: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5kHACjrdEY&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Here are some more video / film suggestions that I think many would agree are fantastic:

Check this out from Cornel West: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjZydhfUxqs&feature=youtube_gdata_player -- When you start part 1, fast forward to 4:38 on the YouTube clock. (parts 2 and 3 will show up in "related videos when you're finished with part 1). Watch it. It's funky, entertaining and gets to the heart of what Occupy is about.

And if you haven't seen the award winning documentaries, I strongly recommend:

Manufacturing Consent Inside Job Why We Fight The Corporation

Also the film The Cove. If those men and women who took enormous risks to shine a light on a great injustice aren't Occupiers, I don't know who is.

The Yes Men Save the World is pretty damn funny and on target if you want to be conscious and laugh at the same time.

The documentary Happy is a personal favorite.

2 questions: Are you getting the impression that after a lull, the movement / the great idea / consciousness about the corporate takeover of our democracy is picking up steam again?

Also, have you ever seen the film Manufacturing Consent? It speaks directly to one of the key aspects of the growth of the movement.

Control Room and Capitalism a Love Story are also great documentaries
