Audience Reviews for Patriocracy
It is a fair and balanced assessment of the ever-widening political extremes in American politics and the loss of moderate representation. The film explains the inefficiencies and problems that arise when our elected officials are so extreme and cannot work together. It traces the problem back to why the voting base is continuing to elect such difficult and uncompromising representatives. Negative effects of political talk shows and saturation of opinionated media warp the public's perceptions in concerning ways. This alone is not the only issue in this matter, but this documentary is correct in saying it is a major problem. I appreciate the diversity of viewpoints from former and current politicians of both parties as well as some news representatives. It offers simple solutions for viewers to be critical of what they see and read. The message is worthwhile but sadly, people with interest in this documentary are probably already aware of the concerns it raises.
