Must-see video: 'The Story of Citizens United v. FEC'

A cartoon of mine from 1982. It makes somewhat the same point as the video mentioned below.

From Truthout:
Washington, DC - The crisis of corporate influence over American democracy is the latest subject of award-winning Internet filmmaker, Annie Leonard, who, on March 1, released "The Story of Citizens United v. FEC," an animated short. Leonard, who directs The Story of Stuff Project, was inspired to make the film by the disastrous 2010 US Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v. FEC that permitted corporations to spend freely to influence American elections.
The short film is fun and it explains a complicated subject in a way most people will understand, even kids. Click here to read the rest of the article and see the video.
