Michael Moore's latest rabble rousing documentary is Where To Invade Next (2015) has an interesting concept. He visits places in the world that are doing positive things with their governments-ideas that are foreign to the US, despite the fact that all of them germinated in America. he starts in Italy and looks at tall the benefits workers get like paid leave and child leave when children are born. Then he's off to France to show how they make healthy nutritious lunches available in their schools to promote lifelong health choices. Next up is Finland, which has the number on eK-12 education system in the world and has fewer contact hours and less homework than other countries and no standardized tests. Slovenia is the model for post secondary education since even foreign students can get a free education there. In Germany, he investigates working class conditions among middle class Germans and show how the populace lives with its Nazi past by remembering it. Then he goes to Portugal to see how they have decriminalized drug use and have stopped using the death penalty. The prison system of Norway is investigated and shown to be effective by focusing on rehabilitation rather than draconian punishment and relative freedom-they also have abolished the death penalty. Surprisingly, Tunisia is a hotbed for women's rights that include women's clinics that conduct abortions in a Muslim country. Iceland punished bankers and jailed them after the housing bubble burst in 2008 instead of bailing them out as they did in America. Moore can be heavy-handed at times and he's not in the best shape these days, but he's also entertaining and informative. The sad fact is that I can not see any of these measures gaining widespread acceptance in the US, mostly due to the state system vs. federal system. There are so many conservative states where all of these measures would be stopped before the got any traction. One can always dream though.
