Watch The American Ruling Class

This thought provoking film was directed by John Kirby. It asks whether or not the United States in reality constitutes a genuinely democratic nation, while also seeking to illuminate the true identities of the American ruling class. Lewis Lapham, an author and magazine editor, participated in the writing of this documentary. The film uses interviews and archive footage to explore the role of powerful Washington D. C. lobbyists and law firms in government. It also considers the World Economic Forum and the role of the Council on Foreign Relations as influential government structures during an era of rapid international transformation.
