Gates Sr. subject matter is in his wheelhouse"
you're missing the context, take for example the conference meant only for the extremely wealthy, or the gang that inherited their funds - this struck me as heartfelt and intimate given Johnson's own obvious situation. It had an ambience of genuine motive that I've never walked away from a Michael Moore film with. It is an undeniable point of courage to take advantage of this trustafarian's dynamic with his environment in order to present a story of this nature.
"I was simply saying that him advocating taking others money when he himself wasn't giving up his was hypocritical."
I thought this could be summed up with a comment made earlier:
"I'm just saying it's not hypocritcal for a wealthy person to advocate fair taxes for wealthy without giving all his wealth away"
A terrible tragedy that continues to illude the most well intentioned. I hope you're not saying that this was the case across the board, that seems intellectually dishonest to not recognize mistakes on all facets of the situation. The film focused on disaster management in a bias manner, please point me in the direction of information that fairly presents all points in this debacle.
"I just felt the agenda ruined what could have been a good piece"
hmmm, and you mean a more agressive taxation rate by "agenda"?
I love how emotionality is prey to words like "socialism", that sounds like a basic logistic employed by those with an agenda... this, however, is dialogue about how policy is formed and implemented to favor corporations and the extremely wealthy (about 6k families qualify under that verbiage). Exposure and it's subsequent measures could border on socialism in a vaccum, but with all the pitchforks at the ready for anyone that remotely supports socialism? yeah, I think that this is still a progressive environment that could only benefit at looking into underlying issues behind economic policy-making.
