Editorial Reviews

Patriocracy, a voice of reason in the age of polarization. Patriocracy is a non-partisan examination of Washington dysfunction. Alan Simpson, Bob Schieffer, Eleanor Clift, Pat Buchanan, Senator Mark Warner and Senator Kent Conrad are just a few of the notable Washington personalities who offer their valuable perspectives. Patriocracy drills down and illustrates the forces that drive a wedge into the middle ground of America and the solutions required to move forward.

I agreed with Bob Schieffer's comment about never seeing such polarization within the Congress; I've been following politics for over 40 years, and I can't remember when it's been this bad before. The film seems to be a little more biased against Republicans/"The Right", but I think that's because the far right has a little higher profile than the far left. One of the best parts of the film was how they explained the difference between real news programs, and commentary or "entertainment". That's a big one, since many people are getting their information from "entertainment" sources. A second point is the money in politics, which I think most would agree contaminates the process. Politicians on bothe sides seem to be more interested in pleasing their benefactors than the people the represent. No matter where your politics lie, you should take a look at his documentary.

For example, the current polarization in America began with Barry Goldwater and Newt Gingrich. Highlights the far right tea party as a problem but doesn't mention far left. Plenty of other examples of selective reporting makes it impossible to trust any of its assertions.

I think this film has a clear bias against liberals... no not really, I just thought it would be fun to write that after reading some of the critical reviews on here. I think its ironic that after watching a movie whose only purpose is to expose the harm of polarizing politics, all the negative comments are people crying foul because team conservative could have been portrayed better in this movie. You're kinda missing the point. If it helps inoculate just one conservative from the infectious bias of this "liberal" film, I will try and provide an olive branch:

Almost all high level Democratic politicians have sacrificed their morals to get where they are. Their legislation violates the Constitution, they take legal bribes from organizations who are harming the public interest, and they rarely tell the truth. They are more interested in their own careers then the best interests of the public. They make up stuff to portray their political rivals as worse than they are. And Democrats kick puppies.

All that is true... except maybe the puppy thing but who knows. Yes, Democratic politicians suck... but don't most Republican politicians fit the same description? Why take such strong positions on one team or the other when they both suck? I think agreeing on this point would bring us one step closer to a productive and positive discussion.

This is a great movie about how corporate america and the need to remain in office dictates our policy. It discusses how there is a lack of compromise, in part due to the lack of social interaction between the politicians, and in part from their needing to cater to donors to win the next election. The billions of dollars that are spent each year on campaigns could easily go to much needed jobs, education, health care and infrastructure. It points out that even those who run for office because they truly want to help, are often not given that opportunity once in office. Great movie. You need to be able to separate fact from opinion in ANY documenatry though, because just like all media today.. every movie or newscast has an agenda.
