Crisis of Civilization: the Neo-Liberal Crisis

This film, "The Crisis of Civilization", narrated by Dr. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed, is a very sophisticated and carefully argued explanation of the current crisis of energy, climate, food production, financial instability, war and terrorism. Before you dismiss it as just another conspiracy film, or just another home-made doc on peak oil and climate change, watch it through, it's only 77 minutes. It's not a conspiracy film because it presents a much more sophisticated and nuanced explanation using a theory akin to Wallerstein's World Systems Theory. And it's much more than a doc on 'peak everything' because it explains in great detail how Neo-Liberal economic policy is a key driver behind all these crisis.
